Samsung BD-P1500 review

 

Budget deck that lacks features but delivers terrific HD pictures

Excellent Blu-ray pictures ; Reasonable price ; Attractive looks

No DTS HD MA ; No multichannel analogue outs ; Limited format support

The BD-P1500 is a terrific way to get Blu-ray on a budget, but be prepared to make a few sacrifices

Samsung BD-P1500 Blu-ray player

 

Samsung have been making noises in the Blu-ray market for some time now. But does their latest player offer enough to convince you to switch from your humble DVD? We get watching to find out. There is nothing in the design to offend and we found that...

Price, Ethernet connection, upgradeability to Profile 2, simple to use

Loading times, remote feels a bit cheap, no HDMI cable supplied

There is nothing in the design to offend and we found that the Blu-ray playback was excellent. The upscaling performance was pretty good and the major audio bases covered, at this price, the Samsung BD-P1500 is a great way to get access to...

Samsung BD-P1500 Blu-ray Player

 

If you're looking to upgrade to Blu-ray on a tight budget, Samsung's BD-P1500 player is a worthy candidate.

Other features include 1080/24p ‘Movie Frame’ output, Anynet+ HDMI CEC support and playback of AVCHD discs with x.v.Colour.

Samsung BD-P1500 review

 

Samsung's budget Blu-ray spinner is available for under two tons. But is its performance classy or compromised?

Decent, affordable Blu-ray spinner, but not up to class-leading standards

Decent, affordable Blu-ray player that won't disappoint

Solid Blu-ray performance

DVD pictures lack clarity and definition ; lean sound

Samsung Blu-ray player BD-P1500

 

This Blu-ray player was the one I used with the recently reviewed Samsung Series 6 Full HD LE32A656 however any full HD TV should allow you to see the full glory of Blu-ray. To hear the full cinema sound quality you will need a 5.1 or 7.1 sound system.

The Samsung BD-P1500 is 43x31x6.5cm with leads inserted in the rear. It has matt black top and sides with grey back and base, the front is shiny black. The following connections are on the back a hard wired (1.35metre) power lead, HDMI out socket, USB...

Samsung BD-P1500

 

The BD-P1500 is a remarkably slim and sleek unit, with a minimal fascia and a decent array of sockets on the rear. Understandably for a cut-price player it lacks certain frills like analogue outputs, but there is an Ethernet port, an HDMI output and a...

Sleek design, BD Live support, decent HD images

No DivX, MP3, WMA or JPEG support, slow disc loading, no DTS HD decoding, no multi-channel analogue outputs

Samsung BD-P1500

 

We've recently looked at a range of attractive entry-level Blu-ray players, including the Kogan Technologies Blu-ray Player Full HD 1080P and the LG B...

Excellent DVD upscaling and Blu-ray playback quality, BD-Live connectivity

Takes a while to load a Blu-ray disc

If you're after good quality Blu-ray visuals and excellent DVD upscaling, the Samsung BD-P1500 is a good choice.

Samsung BD-P1500 review

 

Buying any piece of electronics gear is an investment, but the analogy is even more apt if you're buying a Samsung Blu-ray player. When the Samsung BD-P1500 was first released, it was a somewhat risky pick due to its $400 list price, disc compatibility...

Recent discounts make it a bargain; Profile 2.0 compatible with a firmware upgrade; onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD; very good image quality on most Blu-ray discs; Ethernet port for firmware updates.

DVD playback will disappoint videophiles; no analog multichannel outputs; onboard DTS-HD Master Audio decoding.

The Samsung BD-P1500 offers generous Blu-ray functionality at a budget price, thanks to several firmware updates and aggressive retailer discounts.

Samsung BD-P1500

 

Samsung strikes a nice balance between performance and affordability with the BD-P1500.

Quick start-up. Good DVD video upconversion. Supports Bonus View Blu-ray features.

No upconverted 1080p24 output with DVD movies. Ineffective 1080i video upconversion.
