I’m sure you are all aware of the format war between Blu-ray and HD DVD. Both sides seem to be dug in for a hard-fought and lengthy battle. Some consumers, still bitter over the last format war between SACD and DVD-Audio, are choosing to sit this one out…

I’m sure you are all aware of the format war betweenBlu-ray and HD DVD. Both sides seem to be dug in for ahard-fought and lengthy battle. Some consumers, stillbitter over the last format war between SACD and DVD-Audio, are choosing to sit this one out. Others, myself and other AVRev.com writers included, are taking adrastically different approach. I personally havepurchased more than five players from each of the twoHD formats since they have been released and havebeen enjoying both formats to their fullest. There issimply no substitute for the increased resolution thesediscs offer over even the best scaled standard-definitionDVDs. Samsung was the first company to produce aplayer with true 1080p output, the BDP-1000, and is nowshipping their second-generation Blu-ray player, the BD-P1200. Carrying a retail price of $599, the new BD-P1200promises to significantly improve on load times and thegenerally clumsy operation of the first-generationplayers, as well as offering full HDMI 1.3 support. TheBD-P1200 also will scale standard-definition DVDs up to1080p, in addition to as playing CDs, MP3s and photodiscs. The BD-P1200 is loaded with goodies. It has an HDMI 1.3output capable of Deep Color and HQV video processingfor maximizing your standard- definition DVDs. It offersinternal decoding of Dolby Digital Plus and outputsuncompressed 7.1-channel audio via its HDMI output.

Allowing the use of the new Blu-ray Java system and alsofunctioning as a CD player, the new Samsung BD-P1200seems to have all the bases covered. It will even playyour MP3 and photo CDs or DVDs, as long as they are onCR-R/CD-RW/DVD-R or DVD-RW formats. It will not playCR+R, CD+RW, DVD+R or DVD+RW discs. The BD-P1200 comes packed in a basic blue and whitebox, held securely in place with Styrofoam blocks andwrapped in a foam sheet to protect its smooth finish.Included in the box is the remote (with batteries),manual, quick set-up card, information for registeringthe player online and a composite video and stereoanalog RCA interconnect. I must say, with all the presssurrounding this so-called format war and the seeminglyendless sales growth of HDTVs, why oh why arecompanies not including HDMI cables with their players?Seriously it’s 2007, people, get with the program.Opening the box and unwrapping the player reveals aBlu-ray player that is cleaner-looking than the first-generation unit. The front is a shiny black that slopesback slightly for the upper three-fourths, while the lowerportion slopes in steeply to the bottom of the player. Themajority of the top portion is flat, but the lower edgebends down and seems to sag in the middle, with a deepgroove between the two areas. A blue light in the middleof this groove comes on when the player is on. The topand sides are finished in a matte black and the playerrests on small rubber feet that are permanentlyconnected to the base. The BD-P1200 measures as nearas makes no difference 17 inches wide, three inches talland 13 inches deep, and weighs roughly six pounds. The player is pretty simply laid out. The power button,which lights blue when on, is to the far left of the face,with a standby indicator light next to it. The disc tray ison the upper left side of the face, with the smallopen/close button to its right. The majority of the rightside of the face is used for the display and on the farright is Samsung’s round, four-way tilt switch thatcontrols transport functions. A small button on thiscontrols the lower left side and selects video outputtype. The rear of the player has 5.1 channel analogoutputs, a pair of stereo analog outs, composite, S-
