"Good for a beginner"2.5 starson by the computer genius
Pros: Fast loading a response to remote, Price
Cons: Washed out color, detail level, sound compaired to other brands
I just brought this thing tonight and tried 3 blue ray disks and 2 standards. I tried it along with my sony BDP-S500.
It had the same specs but I felt the sony was better quality, This was decient through. I liked the fact that it was fast, picture was decient and should be good for someone who is on a budget and not too fussy like I am. This unit cost me 299.00 my other unit cost 699.00 I'm saddend because I just spent 2199 for a 40 inch Sony xbr4 which I love (took day off from work to watch it) But I would of have liked to have given my wallet a break. But no my eyes are too good. I am forced by my addiction to keep the sony for 700.00 and give back the samsung for 300. One thing I noticed on both units which sadden me neither one has a zoom button whats going on here?
My Cons' doesn't mean the color and detail is bad it's ok (for me) but for someone just getting into this they will be amazed. Another con that I didn't like was I could not go through the system settings while a dvd was runing that was a turn off. Again no big deal for the avg person but for me....
However if anyone can tell me about a blue ray that has a zoom button that works on dvd I'd love to hear about it.
