We should all know by now that the so-called 'format-war' is over. HD-DVD lost and Blu-Ray won, becoming the undisputed successor to DVD and the high-definition format of choice.What does this mean for us - the consumers?
It means that the price of a standard Blu-Ray player has plummeted and you can now experience High-Definition Blu-Ray for the cost of a high-end DVD player or standard mid-range DVD recorder (around the £150 mark).
This does of course depend on you having a High-Definition television too, and you can only experience the full 1920x1080 resolution playback that this player offers as long as your TV supports it too.
As we have come to expect from Samsung, the BD-P1600 is black and glossy. This looks fantastic although you'll need to dust it regularly to keep it looking crisp and clean. Just ask the missus to do it - simple!
No, I didn't mean that.
Tell her to do it.
Get off the couch and do it yourself every few movies or so lol, that is when you can drag yourself away from this great Blu-Ray player.PICTURE QUALITY
The audio quality is superb - again, very crisp and clear. It's compatible with Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby True HD and should satisfy the vast majority of consumers.
I should point ut though that some people seem to have had some audio set-up problems, with incorrect audio playback and issues such as speech not matching the moving of the mouth on screen etc. Thankfully, this seems to be down to incorrect settings, and is rectified by some fiddling of the different audio options of the player and also the TV - until everything matches.
There are 2 USB slots included with this player which is a brilliant addition believe me. You can connect other devices such as USB memory drives to add to the 256mb internal memory, or as mentioned above - the wi-fi dongle.One of the best aspects of this player is the incredibly fast loading times and eject/start times.
All in all, this is a great blu-ray player and is a reletively cheap method of getting into hi-definition disc playing. You get a great remote, an ok manual and some batteries and a cable to get you started. Be aware that better cables are available to get the most out of the picture, although obviously at a cost.
Go for this if you're wanting a great-looking, inexpensive and reliable player but be aware that you'll be needing to dust it regularly, and are likely to never get off the couch again - which makes it harder to do the dusting, haha.
