CNET had the opportunity to sit down and go over Samsung's first Blu-ray player, the BD-P1000. This isn't their full review of the unit but rather just a first look. Overall though they were very happy with the picture quality, found it less buggy then the Toshiba HD-A1 and thought it performed well at up-conversion. The picture quality was of course amazing and vastly out preformed their up-conversion DVD player. Interesting enough, they used one of Samsung's new 1080p DLPs and compared the 1080i and 1080p output streams. They could tell no difference at all on the 50-inch set. We hope the full review of the unit is not to far off, but we are sure they are going to wait till more titles are available.
