New Samsung BD-P2550 Blu-ray Player?

While checking out the Blu-ray players on, we noticed a new Samsung Blu-ray player listed. The new model is the Samsung BD-P2550, and is priced at $499.

It looks like Samsung decided to release the 2500 series model after all. The player seems to be the same as the BD-P1500, but with the Silicon Optix HQV Reon video scaling chip and 7.1 analog audio outputs.

We’re positive this is a not a Best Buy typo of the recently rumored BD-P2500.

We will post more info as it comes in.

    Not a typo. They’re starting to arrive in our stores as I type this. Haven’t checked on the price or features yet though as I won’t have a chance to display it until tomorrow (Friday).

    The story behind the BD-P2550 is this. It is not 2.0, and is not BD-Live. It however will be as soon as their update goes online for it. Then it will be complete. Other stores will sell a similar unit under a different model but there is a 30 day exclusive to Best Buy.
