Excerpt: I use a lot of DVD players at home, and there’s a Samsung brand which I really like. It’s Samsung BD-P1000. This DVD set is all jet black, and it plays DVD disks back to back, means I could put both sides A and B, and it’ll play nicely for …
Excerpt: The introduction of high definition television asks a new standard for dvd’s because it is not possible to get these quality on a normal dvd of 4,7 Gigabyte. At the moment it is only possible to play such disks and the Samsung Bd-P1000 Blue ray disk player is one of …
Summary: I have this player I would strongly state that you not purchase unless you $300.00 to spend what is really a "beefed up DVD player". It won't play any blu-ray discs past March of this year. I have called their "customer service" countless times with no resolution.
Summary: We bought our 1000 about 10 mo. ago. However, we didn't start watching blu ray until recently. A couple of movies would not play, but Planet Earth would. We then checked these reviews and discovered such a thing as firmware. We went to Samsung's website and got ver. 1.4.
Summary: Bought it a while back. Upgraded firmware Still won't play some disks. Customer Service is worthless and not interested in the problem. Bought the Panasonic and it is a dream machine. Plays everything beautifully! I will sell the Sansung on Ebay... what a waste!
Summary: We have a 50 inch Sony SXRD 1080p television and the high def images are breathtaking. We adopted Blu Ray as our format choice and found this Samsung player to be priced about right when we bought it in the first half of 2007.
Summary: I bought this player in June. First thing I did was upgrade the firmware, then did it again mid-june. Important to keep up on this as the technology is evolving and all the new players will require this from time to time, so keep up with it. I have yet to find a blu-ray disc I can not play.
Summary: This is an amazing player really, and quite under rated. However, the first thing you need to do is either download the latest firmware from the Samsung website and burn it to a disc, or call Samsung and have a disc sent to you.
