Why? Because they discontinue it? buy it....be one of us cool guys who actually own it. Be one of the last people on earth to have a dual format machine with the Reon chip and 7.1 analog outs.

Advanced audio codecs to come in Feb. This player will indeed have it "ALL". However, if you wait until late Feb or early March, you may be S.O.L.

The good news is that Samsung doesn't see the BD-UP5500 as a replacement, and promises a suitable replacement for the high-end dual-format customer in the second half of '08
The BD-UP5500 will be the entry level dual-format player and there will be a new high end dual-format player to replace the BD-UP5000

Which is fine....but when it replaces the 5000, what will it have that the 5000 doesn't have? Maybe more internal memory, but as far as features.....I'm coming up blank as to what else it could have.

I dont think its a matter of the new one having better features, from the way it reads it sounds like they had problems with the 5000 and will replace it with a new design.
I guess I will wait and see on this one.

But the firmware can fix that. Sounds like a waste of money to redesign something when all it needs is software solution.

As long as this new BD-UP5500 has the HQV Reon Chip, I'll buy it!
