Samsung BD-P1000

PC Magazine
28 February 2007
  • Conclusion: The stylish Samsung BD-P1000 is a capable disc player that unleashes the full capabilities of the Blu-ray format. Unfortunately, the initial Blu-ray titles are a reminder that there are lots of older films that need some TLC before they will look great in HD.
  • Pros: Supports 1080p digital video output. Good performance with standard DVD movies. Integrated memory card readers for viewing digital images.
  • Cons: It costs twice as much as the least expensive HD DVD player. The remote suffers from small buttons and an odd button layout. Sluggish start-up and load times, but slightly better than current HD DVD players.

  • Excerpt: With more than a little excitement, I hooked up the Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-ray disc player. Here it is, the first Blu-ray player to hit the world. I put it right on top of the Toshiba HD-XA1 HD DVD player, which I'm sure the Blu-ray people would love to hear, and the HD DVD people not so much.

With these products come several factors: Buy it, and you will 1) have the greatest level of quality available in DVD (compared to...
  • Pros: Picture CAN look good on well-authored material, 1080p upconversion of standard DVDs, Excellent build quality, Bargain price if compared to reference and esoteric upscaling DVD players costing much more
