Samsung BD-P1500 Review

Digitaltrends
14 October 2008
  • Conclusion: If you’re looking for a relatively inexpensive Blu-ray player to bring your home theater up to speed with the full HD experience, Samsung’s BD-P1500 won’t lead you astray. Its simple operation, respectable performance and low price make it an ideal entry-level player – especially when many major retailers have pushed it far south of $300.
  • Pros: Affordable price; stylish design; crisp video playback
  • Cons: HDMI cable not included; menus slow to access

Samsung BD-P1500 Blu-ray Player

surroundsoundsystems.org.uk
26 March 2009
  • Excerpt: The BD-P1500 is Samsungs first serious foray into the recently settled high definition player market. Having launched a less than successful dual format player, Samsung have now come in guns blazing with a sensationally priced player which is half the price of the Panasonic DMP-BD50, but is it as good? Finished in gloss black to match their current range of LCD televisions the Samsung BD-P1500 is an attractive machine.
  • Pros: Overall, we really like the Samsung BD-P1500 and it is a welcome new player at an important price point. If you are worried about investing in a player so early in the formats life, the street price tag of £230 should calm your nerves, and this with the looks and the performance go together to make it a recommended purchase.

Samsung Blu-ray player BD-P1500

  • Summary: This Blu-ray player was the one I used with the recently reviewed Samsung Series 6 Full HD LE32A656 however any full HD TV should allow you to see the full glory of Blu-ray . To hear the full cinema sound quality you will need a 5.1 or 7.1 sound system.

Samsung BD-P1500 review

Stuff.tv
14 October 2008
  • Summary: Shrewd shoppers with a smidgen of web knowhow will find Samsung’s BD-P1500  online for the paltry sum of £170. That’s pretty impressive, considering that just over a year ago the cheapest Blu-ray player was the £300 PS3. So why even consider one of the vastly more expensive players out there? Well, this deck does have some compromises. It can decode Dolby TrueHD, but not DTS-HD Master Audio; it has stereo phono-outputs but no multi-channel analogue connections.

Samsung BD-P1500: ordentlicher Blu-ray-Player zum fairen Preis

CNET
28 November 2008
  • Summary: Mit dem BD-P1500 hat Samsung einen Blu-ray-Player auf den Markt gebracht, der zwar nicht durch einen übermäßigen Funktionsumfang glänzt, dafür aber deutlich günstiger ist als die Konkurrenz. Die Bedienung ist vorbildlich und die Bildqualität bis auf ein paar Kleinigkeiten gut. Wer nur wenig ausgeben will und trotzdem nicht auf die hohe Auflösung von Blu-ray-Filmen verzichten möchte, ist mit dem BD-P1500 gut beraten.
  • Pros: relative geringer Preis, ausreichender Funktionsumfang, einfache Bedienung, übersichtliches Onscreen-Menü
  • Cons: etwas unscharfes Bild, Deinterlacing-Artefakte, kein integrierter DTS-HD-Dekoder

  • Conclusion: En lecture DVD vidéo, cette nouvelle platine BD-P1500 signée Samsung est au niveau des bons lecteurs DVD, contrairement à son prédécesseur BD-P1400. L’ Upscaling est satisfaisant et le désentrelacement ne laisse pas apparaître de cisaillements. Les diagonales et les contours sont parfaitement nets, même sur les films (détection du mode Film ou Vidéo efficace). De plus, la gestion du Pal et du NTSC est parfaite.
  • Pros: Sobriété, Image en HD, BD Profile 1.1, évolutif 2.0, Fonction High BitRate audio, Gestion du CEC et du xvYCC, Sortie HDMI 1.3 et 1 080p/24
  • Cons: Pas de gestion du Deep Color, Pas de décodeur DTS-HD

  • Conclusion: Sen elinkaaren aikana sisäinen ohjelmisto on ehtinyt päivittyä monta kertaa. Uusimman päivityksen mukana ominaisuuksiin tuli toivottu BD-Live Sonyn tapaan. Nettivideoiden ystävät arvostavat myös laitteen divx-tukea. Ulkoisesti Samsung on hi ...
