    Blu-ray Disc Stats - Again, it's exactly as it sounds.


    High Def Digest - HDD has BR news, review, and a forum that can get quite colorful at times. Great resource for PQ and AQ of released titles.

    Those are great links!

    Thanks!

    For what the combo players cost, you wouldn't be saving much, if at all, by grabbing a bunch of HD DVD titles.

    The Samsung BD-UP5000 retails for $999, but normally streets for around $799, though Amazon currently has it for $610.57.

    So, if you go to grab, say, 20 HD DVD titles at $12.20 (From Deep Discount, no tax, free shipping), you're out $244.

    If you buy half that for $122, the what's the point of the combo player for 10 movies? If you paid the normal street price of $799, you've now just spent $200 for a Blu-ray player that plays your 10 HD DVDs.

    Nice Juno cover! I'm surprised they didn't go with some crazy Photochop job.

    All I know is that unless you like waiting months to watch Blu-Ray movies you bought, don't buy the Samsung BD-1200.

    There have been quite a few movies that have come out (like 3:10 to Yuma and Pirates) that just wouldn't play. They released a firmware update last week that finally allowed 3:10 to play, but I find it irritating that I had to wait over a month to watch it - especially since talking to customer service leaves you with the feeling that they wouldn't ever fix the problem.

    Anyways, stay away from the BD-1200, unless you have more patience than me.

    We shall see. Samsung did release a firmware on 3.4 for the 5000 to address some playability issues, like my PCM distortion.

    Of course, it killed the network port.

    I do know that if Samsung does not deliver in Q2 on the audio, I am never considering a Samsung product again. That goes for phones, TV's, etc.

    I think Samsung will continue to address playability issues, as they released a firmware for the 1000 on 2.29.

    It is about ****ing time that my PS3 got "resume play." It pissed me off that my POS HD-DVD add-on had that feature and not my fancy schmancy PS3 did not.
