"Samsungs excellent state of the art Blu-ray player."4.5 starson by LarryAldridge
Pros: With the Silicon Optix HQV upconvert chip you get great results upscaling DVD's to 1080 i/p. The player loads DVD's briskly (20 sec) and Blu-ray nearly as fast. Audio support includes DTS HD, Dolby True HD, Dolby Digital plus, DTS and Dolby Digital.
Cons: Clumsy remote that uses unique codes that most Universal remotes don't recognize. No proble, just use a Universal-Remote-Control model RF10 instead and your good to go.
Summary: This is the first player I have examined closely that has superior playback quality of standard DVD's without compromising playback quality of Blu-ray disks. It is far faster than any other I have considered for purchase and provides HD audio support plus connection to Netflix via BD-live which is standard with this model. All of this and under $400.00.
