Blu-Ray player is an interesting product, but is not ready for prime time. Probably the biggest complaint is how it mysteriously turns itself on, but there are quality issues as well with the creaky DVD loading mechanism and the less than impressive speakers. Wait for a new model, where Samsung might work out the bugs.

If the loaded enclosure or amplifier and subwoofer package includes more than a single subwoofer, then this is the total peak power handling for all of the subs combined.
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements.
This means that the device is able to reduce more noise with the help of a digital processor.
It is a system that tries to filter out “digital noise”, aka picture distortion. This distortion can occur for many different reasons. Anything from the very power used to operate the device to the lights (LED) on the front of the player itself.
This means that the devices will enhance the framerate of older videos to play smoothly on the display set.
Film is usually shot in 24 frames per second with 2 fields per frame. One field for the even lines, and one for the odd. The standard NTSC broadcast is 30 frames per second. To achieve this frames have to be created to sustain a smooth image. So out of every 4 frames, a 5th frame is created by combining opposite fields of consecutive frames, in turn creating a new frame so the outcome will be 30 frames from 24.
