Horrible

Jeffrey A. Parker, Amazon
12 September 2010
  • Summary: This player is almost as much of a piece of crap as the first gen Samsung player. It has disc compatibility issues, won't play certain discs. It is slow, shoddy HDMI connection, overpriced and just sucks.

Big problem

Rainmaker, Amazon
23 May 2010
  • Summary: I purchased a 52" Samsung Plasma TV and this BD-P1200 blu-ray player. Most manufacturers of any kind are only separated when you have a problem... they all know how to take your money, but when it comes to righting a wrong, there are BIG differences. Samsung is, without a doubt, THE WORST.

Samsung BD-P1200 Blu-ray Disc Player

  • Summary: The Samsung BD-P1200 is an absolute waste of money. The latest blu-ray titles won't play on it, so I had to do a firmware update. Three hours and a few tears later, I received error messages flashing across my plasma TV after installing the update. But--the firmware update must've worked on the BD-1200 because it played the discs. Then the optical port went bad--fell apart.

  • Summary: this is the worst experience that i have ever had with any piece of electronic equipment. Samsung is incompetent and doesn't care about service either. this player won't play a BUNCH of the new DVD's and the LAST time i went through this i had to spend HOURS TRYING to download a 'firmware' fix?

Samsung Bdp-1200 the lock up king

ironskull, PriceGrabber
9 May 2008
  • Summary: I bought this abomination, inserted a dvd disc and the first thing it did was close the tray and lock it. No amount of power on or power off resets would open it.
  • Pros: Good picture-but it's bluray, it's supposed to have a good pic
  • Cons: everything

Samsung BD-P1200 Blu-ray Disc Player

  • Summary: I've had nothing but problems with this DVD player. Samsung FINALLY released a firmware upgrade for POTC: III but it froze my player after I downloaded the update. The download turned my DVD player into a paperweight so I trashed it and will now buy Panasonic.

Samsung BD-P1200

Steven A. Ickes "Dark Helmet", Amazon
19 February 2008
  • Summary: The Samsung BD-P1200 looks great for a paper weight, as delivered and is incapable of playing Blue Ray Disk unless you go on line and download version 1.4 (Image), you must download in "Image", otherwise it will damage the unit. The next generation Blue Ray disk will not work because existing Samsung's will not have the necessary hardware. Most of these good reports must have been written by Samsung, there are a number of class action lawsuits going on.

Buyer Beware

J. Lawrence, Amazon
3 January 2008
  • Summary: This player will not play many new titles (e.g., Pixar Shorts), and on many other titles it will reject the disk a dozen times before playing them. The firmware updates lag behind title with known problems for many weeks (if it is ever updated to solve the problem). The customer service is non-existant.

Stay Away!

J. Wintersteen "Weather Watcher", Amazon
27 December 2007
  • Summary: Even with with the latest firmware updates, this machine will not play many of the new Blu-Ray releases. Samsung's Customer Service is very poor and of no help. Learn from my mistake, buy something else!
