Well, the bitstreaming of DTS MA is really nice as I have a bunch of Fox and Lionsgate titles. When the Samsung is finally able to do this that will be good too but the USB upgrading of the LG is sweet also. The feel is much better to me of the LG (Sammy just feels a lot less responsive) with the touch buttons and build quality. Now these are just preferences of course, but I really enjoy the LG in the theater because of the codecs, feel, and the playing of my
BD-R ,BD-RE. As far as picture they are about equal with the Samsung just edging out the LG in asthetics. Even with the Sammy able to do the codecs (whenever?) it cold not exist in the theater for me without the other attributes of the LG. Bottom line they both will be great machines in there final incarnations, baring the Sammy gets the needed upgrades.
Also in the theater the concurrent combo machine must be as close to the separate BD (BD-30) and HDDVD (Integra) machines in operation, speed, sound, etc. and the LG fits that bill to a tee, but this of course is based on stuff that would not be a consideration for most.
