Samsung’s attempt at hitting middle ground with the BD-U5000 –instead of siding with either HD-DVD or Blu-ray– has recently been delayed to December in the U.S, and early 2008 for Europe. The claims aren’t confirmed as Samsung wouldn’t be too proud of missing the critical holiday shopping time-frame, but don’t hold your breath if you want this under your treenorah this Chrismakkah.
Similar offerings are already available from the likes of LG so if you really want to get your High-Def on, a little Googling and a credit card should do the trick.
