[MODERATOR EDIT] Please keep this thread isolated to reports of the new Samsung Blu-ray player only. Questions and comments related to those reports are fine, but find a different thread if discussions head into off-topic territory.

Well it only had to be unopened for about 1/100 second or whatever the shutter speed of the camera was

I do like the box. Very sexy, with the blue and black colors! Looks much better than the HD-DVD box. I don't see a single artifact in the printing. Much clearer picture of the unit.

Why do I have this sinking feeling that all BD players are going to have lots of obnoxious blue light on the front panels and buttons? I hope most players have the option to turn them completely off in a darkened room.

NO BD movies....

Ok, Boot time is about 5 seconds from Power Button on, to a Blue Samsung Screen.

With placings disc in drive, and hitting play, took 15 seconds to start Star Wars Episode 3...

DVD drive smooth as Silk....

Image looks on par with my Denon 2910... 1080i Upconvert...

I'm also using a Pionner Elite 50 Inch Plasma Monitor, via HDMI Output.....

Funny how the Sammy on the HD-A1 makes them look better than they look separate.

People seem to be quoting times all over the place.

If you measure boot as power on to tray open, what is it?

Can you tell us how loud the fan is compared to the Toshiba?
I will wait for a quiet BD player if I have to.
Thanks

Can you turn the blue lights off during play?
This is a dealbreaker for me. I don't want to get this player and have to look at the blue lights.

If it is like their upconversionSD-DVD player you could not turn off the blue light.

Does it come with an HDMI cable, or should I keep the $120 Monster HDMI cable the guy at Ultimate Electronics tricked me into buying?

The format wars are over Primal, you lose - Megatron from Beast Machines (partially)

So long HD-DVD, I will miss you no matter how much I complained about Combo Discs.

DarthSimon,

After seeing yours on top of the HD-A1 I kinda want to go out and get me one ASAP so I too can stack it on my HD-A1! I was at BB yesterday and they had nothing out as of yet. Looks like I'll be going there Sunday. Thanks for the pics!

I do like the build quality... Its not as thick as the Toshiba, nor does it have the Metal on the sides.. yet I love the design... I reminds me of a Lexicon MC-1... Beutiful Glossy Black Finish, with Blue lights...

Fan noise is quieter than the A1....

I only have standard movies.... PQ is as good as my Denon 2910 via HDMI....
