Summary: It's OK. A bit slow. It does look good. At this point I might look for better technology, although I don't know what's out there right now. It works well, upscales well, just a bit slow. For the price I am satisfied.
Summary: I bought this model in January 2009. Overall I've been largely happy with it and it was a good value for its time. Its' picture quality is excellent. Unlike other reviewers, I've never had trouble playing DVD's or Blu-Ray discs. I never upgraded its firmware.
Summary: I bought this because it had the features I wanted (BD Live, for instance) and it had a great price but I was somewhat dissappointed when I had to take the first one I bought back after only a week when it quit playing a picture(but I still had audio
Pros: Beautiful picture, quality audio, and a great price point.
Cons: Seems somewhat flimsy. I had to take the first one I bought back after only 1 week. Loooooong loading times.
Summary: I bought this, tested it for an evening and returned it. But the test it performed best on is probably the most important to readers of this site. It was connected to a blu-ray compatible 32" Sharp TV with 1048 resolution. I was using an HDMI cable.
Summary: This is my first Blu-ray player. I used this Samsung BD-P1500 player for about 80 days now. Overall it produces excellent picture quality and sound thru my HDTV (Samsung LN52A650). On the down side, the remote control is not as sensitive as expected.
Summary: As my first experience with Blu-Ray, it's hard to gauge how this player ranks with picture and sound quality. However I think it's important to rate this player independently of the Blu-Ray format, so I'll try my best. The first thing that struck me is that this player is exceptionally slow.
Summary: This DVD player will not remeber it's place when turned off. I was told by the Samsung customer service that this is not an option in Blu-Ray but I have since found that my Panasonic Blu-Ray DVD player WILL remeber until the unit is turned off.
Summary: My Samsung Blu-ray player was delivered in timely fashion (5 days), but it was defective upon arrival. After working with Samsung tech support, I had to mail my unit to them for repair. It was returned to me in two weeks and seems to work fine now.
Summary: I have to admit that I was originally an HD DVD proponent. I purchased the amazing Toshiba HD-A35 1080p HD DVD Player in Dec 2007 and by February 2008, HD DVD was dead. Rather than rushing out to purchase one of the many poorly rated Blu-ray players, I waited for something better to be released.
Great for watching Basic Blu-Ray discs, but no other functionality.

Excerpt: When I bought this Blu-Ray player, it had just been surpassed by the BDP1600, which meant I got it relatively cheap. This is perfect for what it is intended to be used for, it plays Blu-Ray discs, DVD's and CD's.
