1.0 out of 5 stars Great Format, DVD Player Stinks !!, 18 Jun 2007
This review is from: Samsung BD-P1000 - Blu Ray 1080P DVD Player (Accessory)
So if you're sat reading this review thinking about buying this player like i was a month ago, i hope i can be of some help to you. I had just bought a Panasonic PX700 HD plasma, not interested about sky hd, but love films, my take on the HD or BLU-RAY format war was that Blu-Ray has the better choice of movies scheduled for release, and even if the best BLU-RAY players don't come out for another few years at least i have the option to buy on the new format, and not have to buy everything again, see also V.H.S, Laserdisc.The FIRST player arrived hooked it up to the t.v and tried Legends Of Jazz one of the free discs, the other being S.W.A.T the loading time isn't that long and instantly you are treated to astonishing pictures and sound. I don't have an HDMI receiver, but it's a good Denon amp so i hooked the 5.1 analogue leads to the player to try the uncompressed pcm sound on S.W.A.T, it is a remarkable step up from Dolby Digital, in the same way that DVD Audio is to cd. But then half the way through Superman Returns the picture froze that much that it was unwatchable. Tried different formats over the week some c.d's jumped, DVD's sound dropped out, although when it did work on DVD's the upscaled picture at 720p was great, never had i seen the opening of Star Wars Revenge Of The Sith look so clear. So Amazon sent me a replacement no questions, and that was just as bad and then some, the tray kept jamming so i couldn't get the discs out. So that player was sent back and i've had a refund from Amazon. I am now waiting for delivery of the new Panasonic BLU-RAY player. I truly hope this is of some use, BLU-RAY is fantastic but be very careful about which player you choose.
