Samsung Launching Dual-Format Player

6 Dec, 2007 By: Chris Tribbey

Samsung has confirmed its dual-format high-def player is set to launch in the United States later this month.

Its suggested retail price will be $200 less than originally reported, at $799 rather than $999. However, despite playing both Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD, the cost of the DB-UP5000 player is still more than purchasing separate Blu-ray and HD DVD players: The Toshiba first-generation HD DVD players are being priced at less than $200 and the PlayStation 3's cheapest model runs at $399.
