BDP3600 - Does BDP stand for "But Doesn't Play" BluRay?
Amazon Customer, Amazon
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: 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: 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".
Summary: I decided to purchase this unit despite all of the negative reviews. Shame on me. :-) I bought this player because it had all of the features I was looking for. I hooked up the player, connected to my wireless network with ease, tried to update the firmware, but the player keeps telling me the disc...
Pros: Nice looking player, the ability to stream content from my PC, Divx playback, included Wifi dongle, 1 GB of internal memory, Netflix, Pandora; all the features you would want in a Blu-ray player.
Cons: Was DOA. Disc tray wont open or close. Its also a fingerprint/dust magnet.
Pros: Streams Pandora and Netflix without any problems
Cons: I've gone through two units... plays about 6 Blurays disks fine then stops playing blurays all the way through. Called Samsung customer service and they accidentally hung up on me when transfering my call, this is after waiting for 25+ min on a Saturday. Won't buy from Samsung ever again.
