“One of the newer units to hit the market is the Samsung BD-P1500, which is meant to be an upgrade over some Samsung’s older units like the previously reviewed BD-P1000 , BD-P1200 and BD-P1400. I had the opportunity to check out one of these older players some time ago and I was really disappointed with the loading time of media. Now that it’s been a while (the disc is still loading), I have high hopes that Samsung has been able to catch up to the Sony PlayStation 3, which serves as a sort of benchmark for Blu-ray movie playing. How does the Samsung BD-P1500 compare? Let’s find out.”

Time to dump the PS3?
Futurelooks tried out the newest Samsung Blu-ray player, the BD-P150 which is slightly cheaper than a new PS3. Currently the PS3 is one of the best choices for a Blu-ray player, and when you remember it is also a full console, the choice seems obvious. See if there is anything Samsung can do to change your mind by reading their full review.
