The SAMPO ZONE
It's Atomic. Very Atomic.
Featuring the Sampo
DVE-620, DVE-611, and DVE-631CF DVD Players
A SPECIAL MESSAGE FOR ALL SAMPO ZONE VISITORS: As of 20 October 2001, The Sampo Zone website at Geocities is no longer being updated. For all you folks who've come here in search of Sampo DVD player info, please be advised that The Sampo Zone and Area 450 have now merged to form an independent Sampo superpower to give all Sampo owners one point of reference. These old Sampo Zone pages will be retained at Geocities for historical purposes for an indeterminate amount of time, but you really should just click this link to head on over to Area450. -Craig
