Samsung Blu-Ray BP-P1000 Disc player in my hands

At last, I got hold of a Blu-ray disc player. This Samsung Blu-ray player gives you full 1080p native output and up-conversion for your current catalog. This player also offers backwards compatibility to current dvds and CD playback.

With it , I hooked it up to the LCD TV, too bad it is only 1080i (1366x768 display, non full HD).

Quality is excellent, the images are superb!! Never seen anything like that before. It is even better than those images you saw I previous in my blog on mediacorp's trial HD broadcast.

Looks like it is time to get some titles to test it out.

Stay tuned for more updates.

BENQ 37" 1920x1080 HDTV in Singapore is way too expensive

37" HDTV 1920x1080 is way cheaper in HK compared to SG.

For example the BENQ 37" 1920x1080, In Singapore, it will cost you close to SGD2700-2900 depending on where you buy it from.

In HK, an advertisement fo the same model costs only HKD 8688 which translates to around S$1700.!!

So before you jump in to purchase the high end HDTV, be careful and shop wisely!!
