Samsung BD-P1400

The BD-P1400 is one of Samsung’s third generation of Blu-Ray players. It is one of the least expensive high-definition DVD players, and it offers excellent image quality on Blu-ray movies, with an outstanding soundtrack support. The player is compatible with HDMi 1.3 which supports 10.2 Gbps bandwidth, automatic audio synching, Dolby TrueHD and DTS=HD.

This player doesn’t come with an HDMI cable so one need to purchase it separately. To get the best viewing possible out of any HD DVD player, an HDMI cable and HD television is required. Although it can play Blu-ray discs without the HDMI cable, the picture will not be nearly as enhanced as it is meant to be. One can buy a HDMI cable for about $40. It’s also important that an excellent surround sound setup is included to take advantage of the audio performance. In addition to Blu-ray discs, the Samsung BD-P1400 can play standard-definition DVDs and CDs. It cannot play any discs of the competing HD DVD format.

The BD-P1400 has classic Samsung style with an all glossy black front, with a thin strip of silver along the bottom. To the far left is the Power button surrounded by a blue light. The LED display is located in the far right. It is thinner than a regular DVD player, although it is just as wide and deep, so it can easily fit into any space designed for electronic equipment. To install the Samsung BD-140, just plug it in and attach the HDMI cable.

One inconvenience about the player is that it takes a lot of time before it could play a disc. It takes several minutes before it could play the disc. The bottom line is, it is able to deliver a system that is of good value in a relatively affordable price. There are noticeable flaws, like the freezing of movies, but this could be easily cured in future advances.
