5 Brilliant!!!SaintLea | 03/11/2007 | See all SaintLea's reviews (15)This is a brilliant player for the price and an ideal purchase for Blu-ray newcomers like myself.It's even better if you have a Samsung HDTV when you use the Anynet connection via HDMI for much better compatibility.The picture and sound quality is outstanding with Blu-ray DVDs and the up-scaling for standard DVDs seems slightly better than my Sony DVP-NS76 upscaler. Maybe this is down to the Anynet compatibility with Samsung equipment.Please be aware that there is a new firmware update now available for this model. The best way to do this is by hooking up the player to the internet via the Ethernet connection. Please be patient when doing this, it will take about an hour to complete.Also make sure you reset the machine after the update install by holding down the Fast Forward button on the front of the unit for a few seconds while the unit is switched on, then follow the on screen prompt, you will then just have to adjust your settings back to how you had them before the update.The update fixes a lot of the playback issues reported with some recent Blu-ray titles, notably the Spider-Man Trilogy.
