Recent Issues Ruin a Good Player

Ed Sweeney, Amazon
8 June 2010
  • Summary: I received this blu-ray machine at the and of April, 2009, along with a Samsung HDTV. The player has worked fine - playing discs, streaming NetFlix and Pandora - until last month. An automatic firmware update which I accepted via the internet introduced a bug which renders the machine inoperable.

Great features...where's the quality control?

  • Summary: I have loved this blu-ray player; great features such as steaming video, brilliant picture, good remote design...but where's the quality control? Within 6 months of buying the unit, it stopped playing standard DVD's (unclear if it was because of a Samsung update).

Good BD Player, but a few trouble spots in setup

Tom "SoCal Musician", Amazon

  • Summary: Overall this is a solid Blu-Ray player with the nifty addition of streaming content from Netflix, You Tube, Pandora and Blockbuster. I've used all of them but Blockbuster and they all worked fine. A few drawbacks and possible solutions that I found with this player: 1.

Problems with some titles

Peter Lorraine, Amazon
17 October 2009
  • Summary: The 1600 has many great features - I was surprised how much we use the "instant" netflix feature. We purchased the wireless adapter for the player as it is not near an ethernet jack. On titles it plays, the blu-ray image quality is great.

Good Player, Weird Quirks

M. Li, Amazon
18 June 2009
  • Summary: Having had this player for a week or so and testing it heavily, I have mixed feelings. The video and audio quality while playing Blu-Ray movies is excellent, but it leaves much to be desired from a reliability standpoint. Also, the video quality while playing DVD movies is average.

Good Quality But Noisy

Greg, Amazon
15 April 2009
  • Summary: This blu-ray player functions well and is reasonably priced. Blu-ray loading takes about 20 seconds. Picture quality is excellent. My only negative comment is that the motor is noisy, which makes for a rather distracting whirring sound - much more noticeable than my standard dvd player - that is...

Expected more from a Samsung

Mr. Peter J. Witney, Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: I was given my Samsung blu-ray player as a birthday present and initially all went well, until I bought some new DVDs. Although it plays blu-ray disks fine it stalls and skips it's way through most of my Region 2 DVDs.

A good place to start, but you'll need another one soon.

  • Excerpt: I've owned this particular model now for nearly one year and on the whole i'd have to say i'm fairly pleased with it. I've given it only three stars and i'll explain that later. Firstly the unit itself. Measuring 17"x2.13"x7.83" it'll will blend in nicely with most if not all Fully HD LCD tv's.

You shouldn't suffer from 'the blues' with this Blu-Ray !

19 September 2009
  • Excerpt: We should all know by now that the so-called 'format-war' is over. HD-DVD lost and Blu-Ray won, becoming the undisputed successor to DVD and the high-definition format of choice. What does this mean for us - the consumers?
  • Pros: Great looking, fantastic picture quality and value for money .  Reputable and reliable brand .
  • Cons: The shiny and glossy appearance dust show the dust so get the duster out between films !

Achtung!!!

Antony P., Amazon
17 June 2010
  • Summary: Habe den Player seit knapp 3 Monaten und war bisher auch zufrieden damit. Kaufgrund war damals die AVCHD-Kompatibilität, da meine "Homevideos" in diesem Format auf Disc (DVD Double Layer) gebrannt wurden. Klappte auch wunderbar. Doch seit dem Firmware-Update auf 2.09 verweigert er meine Scheiben.
