non dual, dual format player

Christopher Dahlberg "Spinneroonie", Amazon
12 July 2011
  • Summary: Well this sucks. I ordered this dual format Blu-ray/Hd-dvd player only to find out it does not play Blu-ray. It will not recognize those discs. Of course that company I bought this from never said that. They only said there were a few scratches around the hdmi port (which was true), so buyer beware if anyone tries to buy from Vintage Guitar Gems, from Thousand Oaks California.

I'll never buy another Samsung product after this experience

R. Peterson "Board game geek", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this combo player in April 2008 when Toshiba announced that HD-DVD would no longer be supported so that I would have a player for both Bluray and my existing HD-DVD collection. I moved my existing Toshiba HD-DVD player to my bedroom and set up this player in the living room. This player stopped working in December 2008 only 8 months after purchasing it brand new.

A must have

J. Powell "Superman", Amazon

  • Summary: Samsung BD-UP5000 1080p HD-DVD Blu-Ray Disc Combo Player This DVD Combo player is what every movie fan should have, If you don't know what Blue-ray or HD is go to your nearest Electronic store and see for your self. The bigger the T.V. the better the experience, my whole family loves this player. My five year old loves to have movie day, who can blame him, once you have seen the picture from this player you willn't go back to standard.

  • Summary: I bought this product a couple weeks ago. This player is nearly a year old now, but the HD-DVD playback was an important feature to me. When HD-DVD officially called it quits, I picked up an Xbox 360 HD-DVD add on for $40 and lots of HD-DVDs on clearance. I decided it was time to jump over to Blu-Ray, and for simplicity I wanted one player. I compared this against the LG BD200, and this one turned out to be an excellent choice.

  • Summary: I would like to add this most recent review to let everyone know that since the most recent firmware update and many long days trying to figure out how this component works, I actually got the player to play the full HD audio resolution on my VSX-94TXH Pioneer receiver I purchased recently. Wow, what a difference that made to my system!

  • Summary: Okay, more a Blu-ray player (pre. 2.0 profile) than HD-DVD, but supports full HD-DVD. I have to say the HD-DVD was ready at release, BD, not so much. So, this machine will support full HD-DVD, but not as well as the xbox-360-HD-DVD player. Got this machine to back-up my 360 just in-case is fails, but since BD (total crap if you ask me) won the HD-DVD war, I will settle for less.

  • Summary: Unit failed after three months, was repaired, failed again. Samsung service now says the unit is unrepairable, they have no more units with which to replace it, and offer a $399 unit which will not play HD discs as replacement. Other Thoughts: If considering this unit be prepared that if it fails it probably cannot be repaired and they have no replacement units. Samsung support is atrocious.

  • Summary: Samsung has discontinued this product but at the same time updated the firmware on 5/30/2008 making it Blu-ray 1.1 spec. It handles DVD, HD-DVD, and Blu-ray disks without problems. The issues with Dolby Digital playback have been resolved. I had read Fox titles were particularly hard for this player to handle and that "Sunshine" was the acid test. I pushed it to the top of my Netflix queue. It played it perfectly.
