Good player, but BEWARE firmware!

S. Giuffre "SMikeG", Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this as a family Christmas gift and until last week was satisfied. That was before the latest firmware download crashed the unit. My advice to anyone seeking BluRay: Be prepared to deal with firmware!

Definitely some rough edges

B. Campbell, Amazon
2 May 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this unit for use with a Samsung HL-61A750 television, and for most Blu Ray discs, it produces stunning results. It even does a very good job of upscaling DVD material.

OK product but...

  • Summary: I bought this player expecting a great quality HD experience, good upscaling of standard def DVD's, and the ability to stream Netflix movies without technical glitches. This product did 1 thing really well, one thing so-so, and one terribly. The BP-P2500 does play Blu-Ray discs really well.

Great video and features, but somewhat flaky

J. McNamara, Amazon
30 January 2009
  • Summary: I picked up this unit to be my new primary blu-ray player, largely due to the improved SD upconversion and the netflix streaming feature. I have to say the video quality is superb and netflix streaming is convenient and high-quality.

firmware problems

Prof. Crayzee, Amazon
1 November 2008
  • Summary: I received this item yesterday, and immediately connected it to the internet so that I could update the firmware to get the netflix update. The "update" menu said the firmware was up to date. Then there was the 1 hour of phone calls and chats to samsung and netflix to try to get it to work.

Good blu ray player, but rubbish at upscaling.

samlazenby, Dooyoo
3 January 2011
  • Excerpt: I bought this Blu Ray player because I was looking for a budget blu ray player that also upscales regular DVDs. Unfortunately, I have not noticed any difference between watching a dvd using a dvd player and the apparent upscaling of this blu ray player, despite changing the screen size from 16:9 to...

BD-P2500 a bargin of a blu-ray player if you can pick one up

prosumer, Ciao

  • Excerpt: This is a second generation Blu-ray player that came out in 2008 so as far as players go its getting a little old (only a little mind!) we got this because a well known Hi-fi chain is selling blu-ray players quite cheap and we got this one for an amazing £59!
  • Pros: High quailty upscaling on DVD ` s, can be got quite cheap
  • Cons: not made anymore so one to hunt out

Langzeiterfahrung

Bruckhoff, Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: Ich besitze den Bd 2500 nun schon ein 3/4 Jahr. Die neuste Firmeware ist auf den Player und er enttäuscht mich immer noch. Ich habe mir diesen Player, nur als ersatz von den HDX1 von Toshiba angeschafft, wegen den internen REON Chip.
