Smile Samsung will continue to produce DUO Blu-ray/HD DVD players

CES 2008

South Korean Samsung made it clear at their CES press conference that they would not abandon HD DVD just yet.

A Samsung spokesperson said that "Samsung was surprised by Warner´s decision to exclusively support Blu-ray but that it will continue producing the dual-format player if market demand warranted."

"I don't think we can preface that the format war is over," said Kevin Morrow, marketing director of Samsung´s HD players. "There are still a number of companies involved and will continue to support HD DVD."

"There is still that HD DVD market segment that is not going to go away immediately, and I don´t know if it ever will," he continued. He also made it clear that they still would have announced their latest Duo HD player, the BD-UP5500, had they know about Warner Bros. in advance.

Ive always liked Samsung, despite what some people say on the forums. Most of my electronics are Samsung, and have had nothing but positive performance.

I think my first BD player or dual will be a Samsung because they get the big picture.
