How to set up and maintain the BD-P1000

Antonio del Drago, Amazon
21 October 2008
  • Summary: This player actually works quite well, once you know how to properly set it up and maintain it. The unfortunate thing is that, right out of the box, it will require a firmware update. Here is everything that you need to know: - Many of the early reviews complained that it lacked a sharp, truly hi-def picture. That is because it shipped with a faulty programmed video chip. Thankfully, the firmware updates have corrected this problem...

Do you get the impression that most of the people that don't like the BD-P1000 are HD supporters?

  • Summary: Every once in a while the BD-P1000 freezes and needs to be reset...but not very often. When I got this player, the picture was good and it had a few quirks and irritations. Since installing the firmware, the picture is excellent and the irritations have mostly gone away. I really like this player and the picture and sound (something I did not expect) are excellent. I will be very content with my BD-P1000 until further advances are made in Blu-ray technology.

Great PQ

  • Summary: I just upgraded from a Sony upconvert dvd player and installed the latest firmware (1.1) before I even started.Popped in Casino Royale blu ray and was amazed, it looks like I'm sitting at the movies, all of the softness is gone that the upconvert dvd player would display. As far as SD DVD's go, the upconverter in this player is also better than my sony was. For $500 I'm happy.

Second Gen in March 2007!

  • Summary: This player contains most of the features a videophile would enjoy, along with excellent craftsmanship...every bit as good as the Sony or Philips. Samsung is an real up-and-comer, and they are proving it further with their astonishing ***** (solid five star) second generation machine (available in 3/07). I've noticed that many people on this site buy according to recommendations, as shown by a 67% preference to the Philips (first gen.

Works Perfectly.

  • Summary: With the latest firmware update, that I was able to download from the Samsung web site, this unit plays all blu-ray and standard DVD disks just perfectly. Wonderful picutre when played through HDMI to a Sharp Aquos LC-52D62U, which is a 52" LCD 1080p display. It has a quick startup as well. The memory card reader works good. Nice for showing off 3 megapixel photos. I would have given this unit 5 stars but I had to download the firmware update to make it work correctly.

Huge improvement

  • Summary: Usually I don't adopt a new technology. Obviously you pay a high price and all you have to go on is the hype. I decided to endulge in the Samsung on the basis of buying a new plasma TV (Pioneer PDP-5071HD). The plasma will not support 1080p at 30 frames per second (only 24fps) and so I settle for 1080i. I purchased a couple of blu-ray dvds that I already owned so that I could compare with my existing Toshiba dvd.
