Samsung BD-P1500

 

We've recently looked at a range of attractive entry-level Blu-ray players, including the Kogan Technologies Blu-ray Player Full HD 1080P and the LG B...

Excellent DVD upscaling and Blu-ray playback quality, BD-Live connectivity

Takes a while to load a Blu-ray disc

If you're after good quality Blu-ray visuals and excellent DVD upscaling, the Samsung BD-P1500 is a good choice.

The Samsung BD-P1500 is a great player to finally take the HD plunge with. The price is right, it looks and sounds great with BD and will also make the most of your DVDs and CDs.

Impressive Blu-ray performance ; Rapid load/start-up times ; Solid DVD upscaling

Firmware upgrade needed for Profile 2.0 ; No DTS-HD Master Audio/analogue multichannel audio output

Conclusion Samsung's got more experience with Blu-ray than most and its latest affordable player clearly demonstrates this. It's a shame Samsung's timing wasn't better, and the BD-P1500 was shipped as Profile 2.0 compliant with DTS-HD Master Audio...

Fantastic product. Don't bother even using it until you upgrade the firmware available from Samsung's Australian site.

Pae 35 of manual says it can output DT-HD over HDMI1.3 to a compatible amp.

Can pick up from Target stores at the moment for $331.00

Samsung need better english translatorrs and better user manual writers ; All manufactuers should stop this bullsh*t with this bluray format and make it clear what a machine can/cant do ; Frankly all machnes with a bluray label should be able to decode...

Got this free with the TV promotion. Samsung were very quick and even sent the original receipt back. No problems what so ever with that. Updated the firmware to 2.0. Had problems with some BD's playing up. Some DVD's would not play. A week later,...

Firmware 2.3 is solid. Great up scaling of DVD's. Flawless Blu-Ray Disc playback with 2.3. Fanless, zero noise during playback

Very limited "Disc Resume" playback. No on board DTS-HD. Slow start up compared to a DVD player

I've got one of these, it's nice watching blu-ray, my player couldn't play DVDs or CDs properly - Samsung made me wait more than 6 weeks for some firmware update because the problem couldn't be fixed by a service call, but after repeated hassling on...

Looks nice

Worst after sales service I have ever come across. If you buy this, hope nothing goes wrong with it

Cnet you say 'The price is right' at $500, come on, I wouldn't pay this sort of money for a format that may not even make it to main stream, when they drop below $200 AUD come and talk to me.

Oh, and the Sony S350 offers Profile 2 and heaps better Blu Ray image quality for just $350! The S550 offers analogue outputs and DTS HD decoding for the same price as this unit.
