[QUOTE=zevia;1997188]That’s too bad for Samsung. It’s interesting that the player in question is BD-P1200, which has mixed reviews on the net.
I read from Amazon reviews that most of the problems are it can’t playback many new Blu-ray titles (which has more protections implemented by the studios), and not a good player for scratched disc. Firmware updates also didn’t help much.
New player from Samsung is BD-P1400, I wonder if there’s also issues?
Get a PS3! :D[/QUOTE]
The 1400 also has mixed reviews (not all of them BS fanboy ones either). It is better than the 1200 model but it still has issues. Even the latest firmware updates don’t seem to help much from what I have read. As for getting a PS3, I have thought about it but I can’t justify spending $400 on a player regardless of format (I really haven’t found any game titles that interest me, unlike the PS2). Furthermore something about giving money to the inventor of the rootkits and Arccos protection makes me ultra nervous. I would not be surprised one bit if the Blu-Ray technology didn’t become so DRM infested that the PS3 will be the only machine to be able to keep up. Then again maybe that’s the way that Sony has wanted it all along so they can try to make money off of Blu-Ray and their game sales. Although I wish them luck on the latter.
