How did you decide to get one if you don't even know what the differences are? Everything you keep starting threads about is already discussed on the board. Just make the effort to look around a bit.

You don't need a DVD burner, only a regular CD burner. You must have one of those, right?

What features from your player do you need?

If you've waited this long, I would recommend waiting a little longer for a Profile 1.1 compliant player. All new models released after October 31st are required to be compatible with Profile 1.1 (which adds picture-in-picture capability for interactive bonus features). Those released before that date will not support the new features, and cannot be upgraded to.

I don't see waiting at all personally because there is NO way when the 1.1 players get released they will be at this price point IMO. I mean I really think it could be March before new 1.1 standalone bd players are even out (NOT counting ps3 and the dual player ok). That's a long time to wait. I say go for it. The Samsung player is definitely the best STANDALONE currently from everything I can tell.

i totally agree!!! plus maybe some of the newer player will have the HQV chip for better pq.....i hope samsung releases something like the bp-2400 at 1.1 comp that had the HQV chip i'm not upgrading again till there is an higher quaility player to hit the market with at least 1.1....so i say hold out till then hopefully we will get some news in the next few weeks about new players that will be 1.1 comp

Default Wait for 1.1 and DTS Master Audio 7.1

BDP-2400 has been canceled. The best player out there and that is 1.1 is the Pioneer BDP-95FD. It hit the streets on Oct 31 and is 1.1. It is the only player out there that has both DTS Master Audio and Dolby True HD with HDMI 1.3 Bitstream for 7.1 sources. Despite the fact that there are currently no 7.1 Blu Ray DVD's at least you will be ready for the future without the need for another player or upgrade. The BDP1200 and 1400 cannot output DTS Master Audio via bitstream in 7.1. The price tag is a whole lot steeper at $999 but the difference in quality is unbelievable. This becomes even more apparent when connected to a receiver with DTS Master Audio via 1.3 HDMI bitstream. Essentially you will receive the studio master via you home theater.

The BD-1400 can output DTS-HD Master Audio via bitstream.

What is the difference in quality to merit twice the cost?

Also, there are 7.1 BD's. Lionsgate has released a few of them. Crank, The Descent, etc...
