Problems develop with stuttering on playback of BD

Summary: I bought this for my father. He hardly ever uses it, but now it has developed a problem where playback of BD discs freeze and unfreeze every few seconds, thus making them unwatchable. It is not a firmware or disc problem. It is a hardware defect problem that many people are experiencing.
Summary: Much like the experience of other users I love the streaming Pandora and Netflix, both of which I use quite frequently. These features both work flawlessly and was the main selling point. When it comes to disk playback the system will eventually freeze partway through the disk.
Summary: Bought this product in Mid October 2008. It played BluRay disks like a champ. Easy to upgrade the firmware. User friendly was my first thought. After watching BluRay I didn't want to go back. sometime in December I started playing some regular DVDs.
Summary: I recently bought 2 of the BD-2500 because the 2550 was not available and that I thought that one can upgrade the firm ware to get the Pandora function with the 2500. I realized my error after setting up the first set and returned the unopened box.
Summary: As I write this the price via Amazon is almost $490 through TechNGnet. The Samsung BD-P2550 is a BestBuy exclusive item and it's on sale (in the store and online) there for $349.99. Go to BestBuy, save $100 and buy some DVDs :-)
Summary: After finally deciding to purchase a blu-ray I decided to buy the Samsung BD2550. I got it home and plugged it in straight to my Panisonic 50" 1080P plasma via hdmi cable. Although having never owned a blu-ray I thought the picture and sound were great.
