"Great Product if you are Tech Savy"4.0 starson by ptwob095
Pros: Cheaper price with Blu-ray Capability, Great up-conversion of DVD's
Cons: Limited writable disc support and Firmware upgrades required
Summary: I bought this Blu-Ray player for christmas because it was on special with the purchase of a new HDTV. After reading a number of reviews it was obvious that firmware upgrades are a necessity. I downloaded the firmware upgrade from Samsung.com and loaded the latest version onto the player before ever watching a Blu-Ray. I have yet to find a disc that it won't play even though the manual warns there may be problems. Upconversion on older DVD's is on par if not better than an upconvert DVD player we own. Overall for the price this is a great first Blu-Ray player.
