Note: If a retailer appears more than once, that will probably be due to them offering the BD-UP5000 in a bundle in addition to the product on its own. Hover over each price to see a full product description.

The Samsung BD-UP5000 is definately a high-end Blu-ray player. The remote control is what you'd tend to expect from a Samsung product, although missing the backlight features as seen on most other Samsung remotes.
It's also worth noting that their remotes don't support any discrete IR codes.
Setting up the BD-UP5000 is simple to install and setup and you should be watching High Definition content in no-time. Whether this is some new Blu-ray discs, or even your old DVD collection, since the player will upscale DVD content to High Definition.
The BD-UP5000 Blu-ray and HD-DVD player was positioned as the flagship home-cinema player in Samsung's growing line of high definition players.
The device offers HQV (Hollywood Quality Video) film processing and the unit supports both Blu-ray and HD-DVD formats as well as Samsungs interactive technologies, BD Java and HDi
The BD-UP5000 has a Silicon Optix Reon chip for upscaling normal standard definition (SD) video content from your existing DVD collection. It has to be said that the SD upscaling with this player is truely amazing.
The HDMI video output with this player can support 1080p60 and 1080p24 in addition to many other common resolutions you may be used to.
1080p24 is definately worth a mention, since many Hollywood films are recorded at 24 frames per second, this means that you can watch video content as the director hoped for. This is without introducing a 3:2 ratio pull-down sequence.
