"Anyone want a used BD-P1400?"2.0 starson by i_like_tuesday
Pros: Plays Blu-ray disks, Decodes/bitstreams HD audio formats
Cons: Reliability, Audio drops frequently
Summary: This is my first Blu-ray player - it will definitely not be my last. The Mrs. purchased this player without as Christmas gift so I wasn't consulted in the decision. However, we were both very excited to watch the "Blue Planet" on blu-ray over Christmas. The player performed adequately for the first month or two, but after leaving the inadequate 3-month warranty period the player developed a few quirks in its operation. Ours plays the first half of the disc smoothly, then hits the layer change then begins to drop audio and suffer video hiccups as well. This is not conducive to enjoyable movie viewing. I've been fairly religious about checking for firmware updates, but none has solved the problem - some seem to have made it worse.
In retrospect, we jumped the gun a little bit in buying this player - we will definitely buy our second Blu-ray player within the year. I really rather doubt that it will be a samsung.
