Default Need Help Deciding

I was wondering if you guys could help me pick a blu ray player. I was intially looking at the samsung P1400 but my decision was based on look rather than performance so could you please suggest what you believe is the best player out and a reason or two why.
Thanks alot


also i'd like to know if any one is better at up converting than the rest

lg or samsung dual format players. the new lg and the samsung are both bd 1.1 compliant and they also play hd dvds, so you don't miss out on any of the hd movie action, except for like star wars which are only on high def cable or satellite.

You really shouldn't always be pushing your own agenda on everyone. The guy asked about a Blu-ray player, so he's probably not interested in spending $800 to get both formats.

I dont mind spending the money if it's worth it i'm just not sure i'd want a hd dvd player cuz i dont believe it'd win in the end and if i did get both i'd like two different players because two are better than one

I agree, these are the two smart choices right now.

Two are not better than one. The upcoming Samsung dual-format player has the best specs out there. If you are willing to spend $800 and can wait a month or so, I'd recommend it.
