Delays frustrate buyers of Samsung hi-def combi player

December 10th, 2007 · No Comments

Potential buyers for Samsung’s much-touted first combination format HD disc player, the BD-UP5000, are running out of patience. Despite being promised a pre-Christmas delivery, the model has still to make its US debut. Some retailers now say the player will not be available until mid-January, at the earliest. The combi-deck is the first to promise full functionality for both and discs. In light of sliding prices for both Sony’s and the Toshiba HD DVD player range, the Korean maker now says that it has slashed the US street price of the BD-UP5000 by 200 bucks, to 799 dollars.
