FIRMWARE REVISION ENABLES ADVANCED AUDIO

Anthony Pizzi, Amazon
22 June 2008
  • Summary: Samsung BD-UP5000 1080p HD-DVD Blu-Ray Disc Combo Player This is the Samsung combo HD DVD/Blu-ray Disc player released earlier (and since discontinued, as I understand it).

What's with the price?

  • Summary: I use this player and so far it works very well. I do have to "reboot" it from time to time for some reason but that's no different than the Sony BDP-S300 and the Toshiba HD-A35 players I have in the other room.

Almost Perfect

  • Summary: I've own this product for almost 3 weeks now and I've been happy with it. You hear all this stuff about audio limitation and it's true. It's quite annoying only hearing 2 channel on a "TrueHD" disc.

Very good, but could be improved

Willy Arnaez Serrano "WAS", Amazon

  • Summary: Is not Dolby TrueHD multi-channel capable. The samsung bd-up5000 only plays 2 channels in Dolby TrueHD, but soon I hope will be. Very good image, sound, stylist... It should be multiregion, at least 1 and 4 (almost same for Region A on blu-ray), Hope that soon it would.

  • Summary: ** This updated review is intended to be a 5 star rating; however, I can't seem to edit that part of my old review! ** I was one of those who eagerly awaited this player after its announcement, and quickly bought one as soon as it was available.

  • Summary: I have had this for a few weeks, and I am loving it. The deal with the audio problems should be sorted out with future firmware upgrades according to Samsung. I haven't had a single problem with this unit. The interface is outstanding.

BD-UP5000 good and bad

Kevin Windrem, Amazon
26 January 2008
  • Summary: I picked up a BD-UP5000 when limited quantities appeared in mid December 2007 and have been quite happy with the unit. It's my first venture into HD disc playback and having a single box to play all DVD formats was essential.

  • Excerpt: The seller's been seriously non-committal about whether or not they were going to come out with a dual-format high definition-DUD / blue-ray combo player for a while now (they first said they working on one back in September of '05, only to retract that a few months later), but no more: it's...
