Summary: My wife and I had previously purchased a Samsung blu-ray (1600) and had had a good experience with it. We purchasd the 3600 from Amazon. From the outset, it did not play some bly-ray titles and would skip and stutter as it read the disc. It got worse and worse.
Summary: READ THE FINE PRINT ON THE WARRANTY BEFORE YOU PURCHASE! AND, IF A PRODUCT SO MUCH AS SQUEAKS, RETURN IT IMMEDIATELY! We were complete idiots to buy this Blu-Ray Player! The warranty is THREE MONTHS ON LABOR AND ONE YEAR ON PARTS!
Pros: Wireless Streaming - Netflix & Pandora Are Great
Cons: 3 Month Warranty on Labor. Main Board Failed After 5 Months. Need to push handheld control multiple times to operate unit (open & close disc tray), fast forward, pause, etc.)
Summary: I would recommend this product to anyone, it is worth the money !
Pros: Live content works great (I use Netflix, Pandora & Youtube) DVDs & BluRay disks play awesome The Wi-Fi dongle is very cool and working fine.
Cons: I did my first firmware upgrade via Wi-Fi and it took several hours. I learned from this, and I did the second upgrade a few days ago with an USB stick. Worked like a charm, and took only a few minutes. Another annoying thing was this : during netflix live streaming, from time to time the movie j...
Summary: Fixes. get your player updated to the latest firmware. IF you have trouble with having to load the disc multiple times before it will play them = hold down the >> fast forward button until the player restarts! it will clean out the mem and start working like it should.
Pros: great PQ, the audio analog out (the 5.1 or 7.1) when using a pre or receiver that does not have HDMI but has the 5.1 in the player will decode the HD audio formats so you can listen to the new formats. Sounds amazing.
Cons: This thing is someone what of a nightmare to connect to the internet via wireless. Make sure you wireless router is set on the same security setting e.g. Wep or some of the newer ones. my router only has Wep in common with the player so I had to set it back to the old wep security all around the ...
Summary: This is really the top of the line player for because of the 7.1 analog outputs. It does everything I need it to do and I am very impressed with it.
Pros: Loads discs very fast. Slighty noisy, but not always, when loading blurays. Mulit-channel analog outputs which is a huge plus for anyone not wanting to upgrade their receiver just yet (as long as you have multi-channel inputs on it). So I get to enjoy all the high-def sounds of Dolby Digital True...
Cons: DTS-MA and DD TrueHD audio not possible with compressed video even though it'll read those tracks off a blu-ray. PC Streaming has been unsuccessful so far. I can get the player to see the computers on the network but it will not access them. No amount of passwords, usernames or ip addresses will ...
Summary: After months of researching blu-ray players. I finally settled on the Samsung BD-P3600. After reading some of the reviews I was a little leary and unsure of my purchase after bringing it home. I am glad it worked out and I feel comfortable recommending this player to my friends and family.
Summary: Simply do not chance buying this product.
Cons: I am on my 2nd one of these players. The first flashed black at random times, and now the 2nd is doing the same along with a grinding sound when it first turns on. I am only on a 2nd cause I sent it in under warranty. Sadly I may have to do it again, though I will be trying to play the pity card ...
Summary: I took it back to my local retailer and purchased an LG 570 for about $30.00 USD less and I could not be happier.
Pros: Great feature set - Wifi/Netflix/Pandora - Samsung high quality build & slick presentation.
Cons: Firmware is very buggy - Constantly had to reboot the unit, it took a substantial amount of time to attach to my network. SMB sharing DOES NOT WORK. Samsung Tech support did not know how to trouble shoot their own product. I asked if they had been working on any of the bugs and I was told "no".
