Default First review of Samsung BD-UP5000

HDGuru has the first review of the new Samsung Combo player. The article is copyrighted so I can't re-post here. The review is at:

Looks nice from the pics, and has some great specs:

- HDMI 1.3 connection

- Support for TrueHD and DTS-MA (through a firmware upgrade that will occur before or shortly after product launch)

- 720p/1080i/1080p output. 1080p can be selected as 24Hz or 60 Hz.

- Silicon Optix Reon scaler chip for SD upconversion

- optical, coaxial, & 7.1 analog audio output, in addition to HMDM 1.3

- Startup: 35 seconds from Power On to Splash screen; 25 seconds for either BD or HD DVD discs to load

- Ethernet connector for firmware updates and interactive content, BD-Java (BD-J) for Blu-ray and HDi for HD DVD

Only downside: MSRP $999.00. Hopefully a street price well below this, and it certainly ups the bar for combo players.
