Summary: Very solid built with great picture and sound. Standard DVD upconversion is excellent but rather slow to load Blu rays. Overall on par or a bit above higher end Blu ray players. Good value at current sale pricing but not at retail.
Summary: The picture quality is Superb. I didn't think a Blu ray player would make a significant difference in picture Quality, I was always told the TV's made the most of the Picture Quality. But this player is Far better then than the Samsung BD-P1500 we had. Movies with a lot of Dark scenes are perfect, most movies like this (Underworld Evolution for Example) I thought had terrible recordings. This Player showed how they should look. Definitely recommended.
Summary: I am very happy with my purchase of this Blu-ray player. It took a little while to get all the settings right, but the manual does explain it all. The color and crispness are excellent. Sound quality is wonderful. I matched this up with my Denon 2310 receiver and enjoy the compatibility between the two. I have not encountered any discs that could not play or it bombs out on yet.
