Crushed

Nicholas J. Schwarz, Amazon
30 December 2006
  • 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.

What a waste of time

J. Wilson, Amazon
30 December 2006
  • Summary: I read all the online reviews on BD-P1000. The majority of them were lukewarm at best. The few people that were impressed were those that had the latest displays running at 1080p.

Rip-off

peter, Amazon

  • 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...

Blu-Ray is too expensive to enter or buy movies for

Ahbaid Gaffoor, Amazon
29 December 2006
  • Summary: Update for 2008, oh well I was wrong, Blu-Ray won, I used the opportunity to get a Toshiba HD-A30 up converting player very cheap, I can still enjoy my HD DVD library for some time to come.

Horrible for the price!

Kathir, Amazon
29 December 2006
  • 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!

This thing does not work

KirkP, Amazon
23 December 2006
  • 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

Timothy A Musgrove, Amazon
23 December 2006
  • 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.

More trouble than it is worth.

Couch Potato, Amazon
23 December 2006
  • 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!

PLEASE AVOID AT ALL COST!

Stuart J. Shields, Amazon
23 December 2006
  • 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.
