    Hello there,
    Can anyone tell me the difference between these??? The samsung website has no mention of the 950 version & i can only find reviews of the 945

    Thanks

    Clive

    just to add

    i am begging to think its a lottery which chip you will get in the hd samsungs.

    i am told official samsung web can be misleading what chip is in each model.

    i am looking to buy either the 945 or the 950,

    perhaps owners of the 945 could confirm or deny the chip in their player to be

    Faroudja DCDI Upscaling

    on communicating with br14n from this forum confirms his chip to be zoran

    not Faroudja

    Hi, ok, my first post, but the title of this thread is precisely my question - is there a (meaningful from a users point of view) difference between the 945 and the 950.

    Searching the Samsung UK web site for DVD players yields only the 950:
    http://www.samsung.com/uk/products/dvdplayer/hypervision/dvd_hd950xeu.asp

    ....although fiddling with the url allows access to the 945 details:
    http://www.samsung.com/uk/products/dvdplayer/hypervision/dvd_hd945xeu.asp

    Does anyone know if the 950 is just a tweak of the 945 with a few bug fixes, or a genuine upgrade with novel features ?

    Many thanks.

    950 is black, 945 is silver. There maybe a few differences in software, as the 950 has a picture quality menu not seen in the 945/745/850 etc.. on the UK site it says 945 has DCDi de-interlacer but not sure it does, as its certainly not mentioned in manual!
