Samsung BD-P1500 reviewed

CNET has recently posted a full review of the Samsung BD-P1500 Blu-ray player, noting its low price, but also several of its missing features.

Samsung released the first standalone Blu-ray player back in June of 2006, and since then the company has continued to release a steady stream of updated models, seemingly every six months. The latest release is the Samsung BD-P1500, and we'll let you in on the most important information right off the bat--it's not better than the PS3. That being said, it has a relatively low price tag ($400), and Samsung has promised to add both Profile 2.0 and DTS-HD Master Audio to the player in the future. Sure, the Panasonic DMP-BD50 already has both of those features, but the BD-P1500 costs $300 less. On the other hand, its Blu-ray image quality isn't flawless, and those with older receivers will complain about the lack of analog multichannel outputs. Read the full review to get all the details, and check out our list of the best Blu-ray players to see how it stacks up to the competition.
