Audio Out-Of-Sync with Video on Blu-ray Discs

Joseph Newton, Amazon
19 May 2010
  • Summary: I had to come back and edit my review because I've had the audio go out-of-sync with the video multiple times while watching Blu-ray discs. I've never seen the problem while playing DVDs. I've had no other problem with this player. My player's firmware is up to date.

Heed warning...unless you want to take a risk and headaches

Yougotit, Amazon

  • Summary: I have seldom reviewed products. Mostly because I am open to give some leeway to a piece of technology when they malfunction. However, I have been tested with this piece of junk for the past 9 months. IF and when the player works, it works good.

Dont buy this player

Chris M, Amazon
25 November 2009
  • Summary: I bought my unit in May '09 and it worked wonderfully for many months - picture quality was great when connected to a Samsung LN52A850 (which I bought at the same time) and Netflix was ideal, it even did a firmware update successfully via the ethernet connection.

firmware upgrade and boum

A. ozcan "from an ee", Amazon
16 November 2009
  • Summary: I got the player last week, connected it to the internet via cable. It discovers that there is a firmware upgrade after communicating with the mothership and asks if I want to upgrade. If you say no, the same screen comes up at the next power on. I gave up and upgraded the firmware.

Returned in a week

B. Thomas "Amazon Buyer", Amazon
6 November 2009
  • Summary: I got this one to replace my aging DVD player and it worked fine for a couple of days. I liked the netflix streaming too. In total, I watched two DVDs and a netflix streamed movie (Usually I don't watch three movies in a week, I was testing the player in the first week). Then it stopped working.

firmware update disaster

Rob D "Rob D", Amazon
23 September 2009
  • Summary: Be very careful when updating the firmware on this unit. On my second firmware update my 1600 promptly turned into a brick. Others have had the same problem. I have now been without the player for close to two weeks while Samsung completes warranty repairs on the unit.

Major Issues with this player, would pass on it If I were you.

Joshua M. Garrett, Amazon
12 July 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this player about a month ago when Amazon was running the 4 Blu-ray's and a Samsung player for a big discount. Picture quality and audio are great, when they work. I've had problems on several discs with audio lag and when the player found a firmware update over the network, I readily...

Be careful - some bad units out there (updated to 4 stars)

M. Kenney, Amazon
13 June 2009
  • Summary: I am usually pretty forgiving of flaws in products, probably more than I should be, but this one pushed things too far. I have had this player for 3 weeks now, and I am in the process of getting a replacement to see if I just got a bad unit, or if it is a problem in general with the model.

Not the most reliable player

luceyliu, Dooyoo
28 September 2010
  • Excerpt: really wanted a new Blu Ray player to play home videos on in high definition. It was fine connecting my camcorder to the TV but it became a chore and I began to envy friends who could play Blu Ray discs so I decided to purchase one myself.

  • Excerpt: We initially purchased this blu ray player because we had a Samsung TV and we like our equipment to match though the TV ended up packing up and we went for a different brand but that is a completely different story! We purchased this at the beginning of the year and it cost us £155.
