|Testing and Usage|
When this unit arrived, I was actually quite interested to try it out and see how it performed. After pulling it out of the box I was immediately impressed at how it looked, it looks very sleek and it definitely doesn't look cheap like some other products you see at your local electronics store. Sure presentation doesn't affect how the unit works, but I personally have seen some DVD players that look so cheap that your just waiting for it to break, this Samsung unit is quite the opposite, it looks very classy and well-made.
Another thing I normally look at right away is the remote. Maybe it's just me, but the remote is one of those things that if poorly designed can really ruin a product. I've personally owned products that have terrible remote designs, and it just ruins the "ease of use". The remote with the DVD-VR335 is very nicely laid out, it's narrower than most remotes, but it really has a nice feel to it, it fits very nicely into the palm of your hand. It's also very light compared to other remotes I've used. The remote is also very well laid out, it's not cluttered with useless buttons, and you aren't going to have to read the manual to figure this one out, it's very intuitive. Maybe the remote is the last thing you look at when you're about to purchase a unit, but still with this remote you will not be disappointed.
