Samsung DVD-E360 review
|Review: November 2013|
In a nutshell: The Samsung DVD-E360 is a basic DVD player with a rock-bottom price!
Design & looks
The DVD E360 is a boxy black plastic device that will sit quietly below your TV set and not frighten the horses. It isn't out to win any design competitions, yet it's smart, compact and looks like a DVD player! A discreet LED display shows information about the current disk.
Energy consumption is extremely low, at just 10W and a negligible 0.5W in standby.
This player supports Region 2 DVD and CD playback. DVD types include DVD+/-R and DVD+/-RW. CD DA / CD-R / CD-RW playback is also supported.
The player can handle MP3 and WMA audio formats as well as DivX video. A handy CD ripping function allows you to convert music CDs to MP3 format.
A useful feature is automatic dust removal - the player removes dust particles off of the lens of the DVD player while the disc is rotating to prevent the disk sticking.
The player connects to a TV using a SCART connection or an old-fashioned composite AV cable, which you should avoid using if you want to keep picture quality high. It also has optical digital audio output, for connection to an amplifier and speaker system.
A USB port lets you connect a USB storage device for playback of video, music or photos.
Conclusion - cheap, does the job
This is an entry-level DVD player that has some nice features and is very cheap. For the price you really can't complain, even though it doesn't have a HDMI connection, just SCART. If you want more than this, you'll need to spend more!
Samsung DVD-E360 features include:
- Playable disks: DVD, CD
- Audio: Dolby Digital, LPCM, MP3, WMA formats
- Video: MPEG2 / 4, DivX, JPEG formats

No, only DVD and CD.

I have a Samsung DVD-E360. This is required to play a CD disc that requires an MP3 player.

I have no Audio system to connect to this Samsung DVD-E360. Do I need some speakers or what ever.
What do I need to hear a noise from this Samsung DVD. What is missing. ? Sorry if I cannot write in Technical jargon. I just need to know How I can listen to a disc that I put into the CD player. What is missing in order for an Audio sound to be produced. ?

Normally you would connect the DVD player to your TV via a SCART cable.

I bought the unit to play a badly playable disk
It didn't work I have now severely cleaned the disk
Whilist it still won't play in this device my PC dvd
You may get the unit home but get some batteries they are
Not supplied aka you won't get a USB cable and as its male
To male its highyly unlikely you have one and it's probably
Amazon or Maplin
The read notes above don't say if you can record disks to PC
and there is no software supplied
Regrettably Tescos had a toshiba with upscaleing
Bring on try before you buy
