The technology is still young, as demonstrated with the firmware updates and the pause stuff I mentioned above, but it was worth it to me to roll with the punches to watch movies at their best.
Firmware upgrade: Download / CD-R method was relatively painless, hassle free and took about 15+ minutes. Follow the simple instruction provided on-line.
Connectivity: If you have HDMI and Optical cables, connecting to a TV and/or AV Receiver / Home Theater Unit is simple and easy.
Player setup: On screen menu is intuitive, however, you need to know the capability of your TV /AV Receiver / Home Theater Unit to properly set up this unit.
Picture Quality: As good as you can get. We have been watching movies with $99 Samsung 1080p up-converter DVD player and 1080i HD broadcasting for sometime. These programs look great on our LCD TV, and the leap from there to this new 1080p player is not as great as some might experience the jump from a standard DVD player. Still picture quality, particularly from close viewing, is better and smoother on Blu-Ray discs.
Sound: Most BD's still come with standard Dolby Digital or DTS, and not with new HD format yet. For now I use digital bitstrem over an optical cable to AV receiver - DTS 96/24 still sounds great. For those who already have an old 7.1 surround receiver with no HDMI connection, you only get 5.1 analog conversion out put for HD sound from this unit and may not be able to enjoy full 7.1 HD experience (5.1 HD - yes).
Features: I use DVD player to watch movies, and personally don't care for other features such as new PnP. This unit has standard DVD player functions for watching movies, and yes it will start the movie from where you stop and turn off the unit.
Compatibility: I played BD, SD up conversion, Audio CD, MP3 disc, homemade CD-R and DVD-R movies without any problems so far.
I'll give my thumbs up for this unit. I am a bit puzzled with so many negative comments on this site. If you go to other electronics store web sites, user ratings for this unit are all above 4.0, not too bad for $300+ unit. This unit certainly deserves better rating than 3.0.
It has about every kind of connector you could want, which is nice. Setup was completely painless. optical connection to receiver, hdmi to the tv, boom, done, works like a charm.
I was planning on having this player play my blu-ray disks, and my upconverting "regular" dvd player do the standard disks, but now after using this player for a while, I really don't feel I need the other one.
I like the on-screen menus, and remote. The usability is quite good imho. The only drawback is the one that everyone else mentions too and that is the general sluggishness that this machine has. It takes a good 30sec or so to do something simple like turn the machine on or eject a disk. And even things like fast forward seem sluggish. You get used to it and it's not a huge deal, but there it is, so I deduct a star for that.
The Samsung BD-1400 definitely needs to go back into the oven for a while longer because it's just not done yet. Hopefully a software update will be issued soon to address the technical problems this player has. I advise any potential buyer to be aware this player is not going to offer 100% trouble free performance. For the price and value, I would still recommend the Playstation 3. It offers better Blu-ray playback, as well as future proof updates to upcoming Blu-ray software profiles.
