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 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!

Samsung BD-UP5000 1080p HD-DVD Blu-Ray Disc Combo Player

  • 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.

Awesome System

E. Zeitgeist, Amazon
23 June 2008
  • Summary: I went from the Toshiba 3 HD DVD system to this one, keeping the Toshiba as a back up for HD DVDs and I could not be happier with this system. I've only been using it for about a month, but the quality of play is excellent, the start up time for the machine is faster than the Toshiba, and I have had no DVD issues with random pausing like I a little bit with the Toshiba. Oh, and it plays Bluray discs? Ye-ah.

Disregard the earlier negative reviews

jshock, Amazon
1 June 2008
  • Summary: Thanks to the latest firmware update, those earlier criticisms about the unit's audio limitations have been overtaken by events. Virtually overnight, the BD-UP5000 has gone from flawed product to one of the best-performing hi def players on the market. It's always had a beautiful picture, for both Blu Ray and HD DVD, but now handles the latest audio codecs as well.

FANTASTIC - SAMSUNG ROCKS! Forget Sony.

G. Michael "What a guy, you know?", Amazon
8 May 2008
  • Summary: I bought this player because I had started to build my HD-DVD library quickly and I refused to buy a Sony after their suspicious back room deals with the movie studios. A problem I experienced with my Toshiba HD-DVD players (yes, plural) was that standard audio CD's would not play well and would have small pauses during playback. This Samsung plays everything perfectly. For those people who have never experienced HD-DVDs, consumers lost out in this format battle.

Very Well Built

  • Summary: I've been very happy with this product since I got it about a month ago. The picture quality of this unit is great and I Have not had any issues at all as some here may have said about their units. The built date for my unit is Feb. 2008 so perhaps that could have something to do with it.
