Summary: To add to the warnings, while the Blu-Ray player is acceptable if a bit on the slow side, Samsung customer and technical support is glacial. As with another reviewer, the wireless streaming was a critical part of the purchase of this product.
Summary: (Below is the text from my original review, but see update below for problems I encountered after the first couple of weeks... ) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ORIGINAL REVIEW: I am very happy with this purchase.
Summary: Let's get the negative out of the way because there is some good. I've had this player since it first came out on the market. Samsung has already released two firmware upgrades which could be a good thing BUT if you're using a wireless network it whips out our settings.
Summary: Comments about Samsung BD-P3600: The jury is still out on whether this is a decent player. Although I loved the Netflix, Pandora, and wireless set-up, my unit skipped and had lip-synch issues right out of the box. There is an extensive forum of unsatisfied users at [@].
Summary: Against my better judgement, I purchased another Samsung product. I own several of their laser printers and have had many substandard experiences with their technical support staff. They are completely illogical and unorganized.
Summary: I bought this unit last week. I think it looks sleek and smooth, and pays Blu Rays and regular DVD's well, but I have been totally unable to connect to the net via my home Airport Extreme network.
Summary: Player was returned for mechanical and design problems Pro's: Excellent DVD and Blu Ray Video. Con's: Player made clicking sounds during playback of video on both DVD's and Blu Ray disks.It would hang-up and produce digital pixelation. WI FI connectivity: Great concept, poor design.
Summary: Let's start with the good - Blu-ray discs play well, and upconverting of standard DVDs is pretty spectacular - far better than my HD-DVD player. Only down side for normal usage is that it does take a little while to start up, but no longer than any other hi-def players I've seen.
Summary: I bought this at Best Buy for the fact it was exclusive to them for about 2 months of it's initial release. It looks great in the home theater and offers promising features. I bought this more so for the streaming Pandora, Netflix, and Divx encoded files.
Summary: Habe mir inzwischen den BD-P1600 zugelegt und sehe nicht wirklich einen Unterschied bezüglich Geschwindigkeit und Bedienung. Der 3600 hat zwar einen integrierten Speicher, aber das ist mir nicht so wichtig. Die schnelle Aufstartgeschwindigkeit ist nur ein Werbegag.
