"Darn good player....better than reviews I've read!"4.0 starson by dbrat1
Pros: Fantastic picture and sleek design
Cons: Crap-tastic cable included....
Summary: After some setting tweeks, this BD player was everything my wife and I were looking for! Reviews I read before coming home from Best Buy with it complained about slow booting and pauses on standard DVDs....didn't happen. Boot time was noticable but not annoying...heck, my LCD takes 10 seconds to boot. View both Planet Earth blu-ray and The Mask in standard with no issues.
One of the setting tweaks was elimate some black pixels that were most noticable on bright areas of the picture. Reseting the player so it knew my TV was 1080i (rather than 1080p)...must be an HDMI thing...it was too easy and fixed the issue.
Samsung included an useless audio cable and could have provide an HDMI.
