Easy setup, plays my videos, plays all my DVDs, no complaints. VHS picture looks a bit soft, but that's probably the best it can be. I have a thing for tacky 80's b-movies that never made it past the rental market, so they've all been well used!

Found this code on a forum for another player and it works, make sure you don't have a disk in.

1. Turn on player with no disc in the tray. "No disk" appears on screen.
2. Press the "Repeat" key on the remote.
3. Press "57538" on the remote. A number should appear on screen, indicating your player's current region (e.g. "2").
4. Press the number for your required region (e.g. "1") or "9" for region-free/all-regions. The number will appear on screen, replacing the previous number (from step 3).
5. Press "Open/Close Tray" and leave the tray open for a few seconds.
6. Press "Power On/Off". The tray closes automatically and the player turns off. Next time you turn it on, it is region free (or whatever Region you selected in step 4).

I bought this unit 4 months ago. Overall I have been slightly disappointed as the unit is a bit sluggish in it's mechanical operations - eg while rewinding, or jumping to next section of DVD etc, and is quite noisy - lots of whirring and clicking.
I have already had it fixed because the DVDs would freeze while playing, and then get stuck in the machine. (The repair was free as it's in its 1 year warranty.)
Other than all that, it does play VHS tapes and DVDs in the way you would expect. I haven't tried recording onto vhs yet.
But I would hesitate before recommending this product and kind of wish I'd bought something else.

The DVD and VCR that this replaced (from 6-10 years old) cost four times as much and yet this is superior to them both. I can't beleive that some expected a DVD Recorder was included at this price...give it a few more years at least, however the descriptions for the v6800 do vary depending which site is visited. The VCR definately has 6 heads and not 4. The DVD can become multi-region with the hack descibed by others on Amazon. If like me your TV only accepts Progressive Scan in NTSC format the DVD player won't output a PAL disc in NTSC format. NTSC encoded disks work fine. I didn't have any issue with the remote either although the dubious unbranded batteries could have caused that issue.

The Samsung DVD-V6800 is a straightforward machine. Inexpensive, and does the job well of playing both tapes and discs. Some descriptions of what it does are somewhat confusing so for all clarity: it does not record DVD's, but it does record on VHS. Therefore it does not copy from VHS to DVD either. Miss Hawthorne's 'recipe' of making the machine accept DVD's from all regions works fine, which is useful if you can get DVD's on Ebay cheap because they are not region 2: you just redefine the player as region 9 (i.e.: all regions) and you can play any DVD. Works fine too with DVD's recorded on other machines, or copies of DVD's.
Screen-menu's are clear and intuitive; setting up the machine is child's play.
A lot of machine for the little money you pay.

The product description quite clearly says "It records to both formats too". It does not. I ordered this product because it was advertised as being able to record to both formats and have now emailed Pixmania about the misdescription. Hopefully they will decide that it is not a technical problem that Samsung have to deal with but an error on their/Amazon's part when it comes to describing what the product does... there are laws about that sort of thing y'know. If, however, you want a product that records to vhs tape and plays vhs tape, it can do that. If you just want a dvd player, it can do that too. One of the other things I read about it was that it could tape the dvd's - tried that, and dvd/vhs says "no". I'll get my money back no doubt, but I want the postage too.

Several weeks later... I have finally received the refund of the full amount plus postage. They arranged a pick up by Parcelforce, although did not bother to check whether I would be around when Parcelforce turned up. All went well, until I returned home one day to find that Parcelforce had tried to deliver a package. I went to the sorting office and picked up... the same player that I had just returned and had received a refund for: I could have kept it but am too honest, so I went through the rigmarole of getting Pixmania to have Parcelforce pick up the package again. A lot of hassle for £57 and I bet it cost them more to email me over ten times and arrange two Parcelforce pick ups than the cost of the item. So, anyone got any recommendations for a VHS/DVD dual recorder and dual player for under £75?

For the price this seems an excellent little unit. Unlike the other reviews have had no problems with any playback or the remote. Maybe I'm just lucky but cant find anything bad to say on this. All media plays well too.

I just got my dvd player today and it's spot on. took me no more than a minute from taking out the box to having it set up on my TV (including switching it to multi-region). it was easy to set up which is a good thing considering all the instructions i got with it were in French and even the dvd player itself is set in French.

This is where i'm hoping somebody might be able to help me, am I able to switch the dvd play to english so i can understand the menus?

plus on a side note and this isn't really anything against the dvd player. when it was delivered today the packaging was shocking. it was all ripped to bits. If it wasn't for the fact that none of the holes in the bag were big enough to fit the dvd player though i would of said it looked like somebody had switched them.
