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: 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 my player 2 months ago and I must say Blu Ray is stunning ... that is, when my Samsung BD P-1000 plays the disc. Already I have been unable to play 3 discs -- The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, The Descent, and The Pursuit of Happyness.
Summary: Overall this blu-ray player has performed above average. It does still need a little work in the video quality as I know some blu-ray disks should look somewhat better than it looks on this Samsung. Hopefully, their upcoming second generation player will take care of these issues.
No difference in expected quality - but no real HD titles for BR either!

Summary: The VHS vs Betamax comparison does not make sense, they were analogue formats and both stank! For those of you who are not aware, the Blu-ray format allows for more information on a single disk than HD-DVD, however that space is not used to enhance the picture, it's there to store extras such as...
My advice: Wait until the format, and your own system, develop.

Summary: So much has been said and written about Blu-ray. So it was with much excitement that I unwrapped my brand new Samsung BD-P1000 on launch day. Yet, after a weekend during which I tested four Blu-ray movies, as well as several standard DVDs, I couldn't help but be disappointed.
Excerpt: Attention. Ne lis pas les BR profil 2, c'est à dire toutes les nouveautés avec de l'interactivité un peu poussé (style AVATAR, SUCKER PUNCH, BLACK SWAN...). Il plante carrément ou charge dans le vide. Par contre bon upscaling, il est facilement dézonable et peut lire les dvd US zone 1 sans problème.
Summary: CIAO! HO ACQUISTATO QUESTO BLU RAY NELL'AGOSTO DEL 2007 DA SATURN A PARCO LEONARDO A FIUMICINO... MA NON MI SONO TROVATA TROPPO BENE PERCHE' NON POTENDO AGGOIRNARE TRAMITE INTERNET COME QUELLI DI ULTIMA GENERAZIONE SONO COSTRETTA TUTTE LE VOLTE A STACCARLO E A PORTARLO ALL'ASSISTENZA PER FARGLI FARE...
Summary: Ich besitze das Gerät nun seit einigen Monaten. Auffällig und bisher nicht genannt ist die deutlich schlechtere Qualität beim Abspielen von DVDs. Ich kann also nicht auf meinen bisherigen Harman verzichten. Das nervt, so von wegen Anzahl der Fernbedienungen und umstöpseln am Beamer.
