Summary: Poor performance. I have a nice 50" plasma (not 1080), but the Blu-ray DVD's I tried on this look less impressive than the HD channels I receive. For the price I paid, I was crushed. Way dissappointing. The load speeds and the poor controls (i.e.
Summary: I have had the worst possible experience with this product and with Samsung's service. I purchased the Blu-Ray Disc player in September 2006. The player would play regular DVDs (its upconverting capabilities however were severely lacking compared to other players such as the Oppo DV-970HD), but Blu...

Summary: I bought this samsung player and played a four blueray movies this weekend, and compared the quality to the HD channels I get from cable and the blueray is not better than regular DVD quality.
Summary: Watched a HD-DVD movie in a friend's home, and I was totally stunned by the difference in the quality between these 2 formats. I was marginally impressed by blue-ray when I saw it for the first time, however when compared with HD-DVD, it really pales in comparison!
Summary: I received the Blu-RayBD-P1000 in November of 2006 and I have had nothing but trouble with the unit since I got it. First, it will not connect properly with my Samsung HDTV unless I start the TV first wait a couple of minutes and then turn on the DVD.
Unbearably slow loading and stopped playing Blu-Ray after 5 months

Summary: Played Blu-Ray fine for first five months then stopped (still plays regular DVDs). Can't return to the store (past 30days), so only recourse is to mail in for warranty coverage and wait several weeks to get it back.
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: 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.
