3 on Blu-ray is one of the Holiday season’s most highly anticipated
releases on the 1080p high definition Blu-ray format but early adopters
may have problems playing the disc in many of today’s Blu-ray players.
Using a review copy of "Spider-man 3" on Blu-ray on local tests at
AVRev.com, the disc struggled to play in the brand new Samsung
BD-P1400. After an excruciatingly long load-up time, the disc starts to
freeze and skip from the very start. Audio dropping out, picture
stuttering, you name it. Compared to the mainstream consumer’s
expectation for DVD playback, most couldn’t make it to the actual film.
