With High Definition video now firmly established, the Samsung BDP1400 makes for an excellent investment in the new technology.
This new Blu-ray player will not only get the best out of the latest 1080p HD format, but is also backwards compatible with conventional DVD - meaning that you don't have to chuck out your existing collection.
Thanks to Blu-ray technology, an amazing 50 GB of information can be fitted on a single disc - making it an ideal format for holding a feature length high-definition movie.
With such high capacity available, it comes as no surprise to find that the BD-P1400 will output at the highest quality video possible - 1080p. Linked to a suitable Full HDTV, this gives a stunning level of definition that makes even conventional High Definition (720p/1080i) look a little lack-lustre.
In addition to the HD Ready HDMI v1.3 interface, you'll also find component and S-Video as alternative video outputs and optical, co-axial and 5.1 RCA audio outputs. Furthermore, you'll also find an Ethernet Port which is ideal for receiving updated firmware online, or even accessing additional disc information.
Although feature packed and at the height of technology, the BDP1000 remains remarkably easy to use. The graphic interface is intuitive and friendly to use, whilst the unique pop-up menu gives extra source information in an easy to digest format.
For a Blu-ray player with its finger on the pulse, look no further than the Samsung BD-P1400.
