BDP3600 - Does BDP stand for "But Doesn't Play" BluRay?

3 January 2015
Summary: We've had the BDP3600 for a few years now. We are very unhappy. It plays DVDs and streams NetFlix fine. But it doesn't play BluRays movies anymore. It worked fine when we first got it. But now, if we try to play a BluRay movie we get a message that says "This disk cannot be played".
Summary: I've owned this player for about 18 months now. Initial setup was tricky because my wireless modem is too far away from the living room to provide a nice stream for videos. Although my PC's worked just fine in the living room, the intense video streaming required of the blu-ray with PC's operating...
Summary: Now I don't. I just purchased 4 blu-ray movies by Disney. And this player will not play them properly, with the most current firmware available. There's a whole forum out there about how this player won't play the Disney blu-ray movies, and some DVD's, properly or at all.
Summary: They call this a Blu Ray player. Only I'd never know it. Cause it will only load Blu Ray disks .5 out of 10 times. I've upgraded the firsmware 3 times in the 6 months I've owned it. We've rented disks -- it won't play them. We've bought disks -- it won't play those either.
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 bought my unit in April 2009 and was extremely pleased with the video and sound quality. However it just abruptly died in July 2010. It was the first of my many VCR and DVD players to die so I am not naturally pleased with the outcome.
Summary: This unit came to me in a box with two tiny pieces of foam that weren't protecting the player but floating around the box. Also floating around the box was a couple of packing bubbles and THE PLAYER ITSELF.
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.
