The Samsung DVD-C500 is a progressive scan DVD player released in April 2010. It features an HDMI v1.4 connection with 3D support, allowing it to transmit extremely high-resolution video content, including upcoming 3D movies and games, in a pure and uncompressed stream. Plus the unit sports a dust-proof feature that removes dust while the disc is rotating, ensuring enhanced performance with a near non-existent error rate. Most notable about the DVD-C500 is its support for DivX playback, meaning downloaded DivX films can be burned onto a DVD or CD and then played on a television. Additional features include 1080p up-conversion, Anynet+ universal control via HDMI-CEC, and Samsung’s Defect Disc Recovery Solution, which makes it possible to play curved or tilted discs.
