That's the problem it takes it I swear an extra 15 seconds to decide it's a BD disc and get into BD mode. However I'll take that extra 15 seconds to have combo.
I generally think Universal players don't exceed at any one thing. However this is really different. The devices are the same for the most part using the same codecs. So there is no real difference like SACD vs DVD A. It uses the same processing for both.
If you can get one at a street price of $750 or so I'd say buy one. It's like buying the $500 HD DVD player and a nice BD player.
It's a steal.
I have looked just about everywhere for one, so where can one obtain a BD-UP5000?
