The 1400 is actually pretty strong of a player. Just don't get a lemon. Like many items that have slightly more lemons than others they get a lot of play on internet sites.
There is nothing truly bad about the 1400 it's leaps and bounds beyond the original Samsung unit.
I'd say go for it. It's a steal right now at $275.
