Samsung BD-P1400 Blu-ray Disc Player

 

This Blu-ray player is inexpensive, but its image quality and features disappoint.

Very good menus and documentation ; Ethernet port for easy firmware updates

Disappointing picture ; Poor audio quality

At $400, the BDP-1400 remains among the least expensive Blu-ray Disc players available. But other models can offer better value

The Samsung BD-P1400 Blu-ray disc (BD) player ($449.99 list) is one of the most affordable models the company offers, and this tempting value includes better-than-average audio features for a first-generation standalone Blu-ray player. Samsung is also...

Relatively inexpensive. MP3/JPEG playback from recordable DVD. Support for bitstream audio output (HDMI). Decodes Dolby TrueHD. Online firmware updates.

Sluggish disc load times.

The BD-P1400 isn't the fastest Blu-ray disc player you can buy, but it provides a pleasing viewing experience and good audio format support for a relatively low price.

Samsung BD-P1400 Blu-ray DVD Player - The Rest of the Story

 

The BD-P1400 represents a decent Blu-ray player at an attractive price point but a mediocre SD DVD playback device. End users would be better off using a higher quality standalone DVD player for that library or looking at Samsung’s BD-P1200 if SD DVD...

Editors' note June 9, 2008 : The rating of this player has been changed again to reflect changes in the marketplace.

Excellent image quality on Blu-ray movies; outstanding soundtrack support with onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD High Resolution and bitstream output for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio; relatively low price compared to other standalone...

Only Blu-ray Profile 1.0 compliant, so it will not play some bonus features on some new discs in 2008; below-average performance with 1080p output at 24 frames per second; some annoying operational issues.

The Samsung BD-P1400 delivers a mostly capable Blu-ray player at a relatively affordable price, but it's probably still better to hold off for newer models or a PlayStation3.

Samsung BD-P1400 Blu-ray Player

 

Samsung was the first manufacturer to introduce a Blu-ray player in the U.S., so it should come as no surprise that the company is now on its third generation. The BD-P1400 has a lot going for it, and it's tied with the 40GB Sony PS3 as the least...

It is said that practice makes perfect, which is clearly illustrated by the BD-P1400. Okay, so it’s not quite perfect—it does not conform to Full Profile, and the analog audio output leaves something to be desired. But it certainly bests its...

The problem with the move to Blu-Ray DVDs is that the technology is still fairly new and players are still pretty expensive. Sure, the Playstation 3 includes one, but what if you just want an affordable stand-alone Blu-Ray player? The answer is the...

We ponder the virtues of a Profile 1.0 BD-spinner

Ethernet port ; Stylish design ; Hi-res bitstream audio out

Not Profile 1.1 ; Some 24fps issues

A cheap Blue-ray disc player

 

At $769, the Samsung BD-P1400 remains among the least expensive Blu-ray disc players available. But other models can offer better value.

Supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD High Resolution, powers up quickly

Poor audio reproduction, poor colour quality, trouble coping with complex interactive disc features

Product Specifications

Samsung BD-P1400 is a third-generation Blu-ray Disc (BD) player. Now home entertainment aficionados can enjoy the closest experience to going to the movies in their own home. Building on the success of Samsung's BD-P1000 (the first Blu-ray player in the US Market) and the second-generation BD-P1200, the all-new lineup quenches consumers' thirst for not only the best video, but also the best audio quality available in a hi-definition disc player. For a truly cinematic home theater viewing experience, Samsung's new BD player lineup offers full compatibility with 24 movie frames per second playback. Since most movies are filmed at 24 frames per second, these new Samsung Blu-ray players will be able to playback movies in their native format, significantly reducing unwanted artifacts. Setting the player's Movie Frame (24Fs) feature to ON allows the consumer to adjust the HDMI 1.3 output to 24 frames per second for a crisp, theater-like experience. Each of these players will also support 60Fs for enhanced compatibility with many of today's HDTVs. Not only is it important for movies to look good, but also they need to sound good. Samsung's latest BD players complete consumers' HD total home theater experience with advanced HD audio decoding. Beyond standard Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS audio playback, BD-P1400 works with lossless formats including, DTS HD and Dolby TrueHD for a variety of clear, full-bodied sound options. When coupled with both models' HDMI 1.3 connection, consumers can enjoy the purest sound quality available today. The HDMI 1.3 connection also offers HDMI CEC (Anynet+) technology, allowing consumers to use a single remote control to operate the BD player, TV and other A/V products from Samsung. Additionally, the model is able to up-convert standard DVD discs to full HD 1080p resolution via the HDMI connection, bringing consumers' DVD movie collections into the next generation. Finishing off the BD-P2400's expansive feature list, the built-in Hollywood Quality Video (HQV) processor, a powerful unit similar to those used by Hollywood production studios, enables true 1080i to 1080p HD de-interlacing for the best HD images possible - even from DVD formats. It is a great option to ensure full optimization of HD and non HD libraries. For those with extensive DVD collections, the BD-P1400 model includes backward compatibility with standard DVD and CD formats (including DVD-ROM, DVD-+/R, DVD-+/RW, CD, CD-R and CD-RW). Playback of multimedia content in a variety of different formats is quick and easy at 720p, 1080i and 1080p resolutions. The "Easy Top Menu" allows consumers to change font and color of subtitles and menu titles according to their tastes, as well as the background color and menu graphics.
