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. I also hear that reliability may be or have been a problem with these units...
Summary: Please note my update at end of review. I was a bit put off by the number of bad reviews for the BD P3600. But at the present low cost. I took a chance & I'm glad I did. There are some glitches though. 1) on my unit, after the opening screen shows up, if you select "open" the unit freezes. I contacted Samsung (got right through on 1st attempt) and was told they were aware of the problem but had no solution.
Summary: Well, I guess I'm the first 3 star review for this baby. I picked it up at Best Buy for $225 (or I would have rated it two stars; $299 is TOO MUCH for the skimpy extra feature set). Great picture, Sound (but isn't that a minimal expectation?) Faster than my Memorex bargain basement bluray player...or so I thought -----Last night while watching Public Enemies, I paused the film for 5 minutes, and could not UNPAUSE/play the disc.
Another beta version of a sometime-in-the-future great product

Summary: While I was impressed with the purported capabilities of this player, I was skeptical about how they would really work once I got it home. Setup was rather easy. The wireless dongle found my network and got me signed in the first time, but then inexplicably failed the next time I sat down to watch netflix. It took 3 power cycles to get it back.
Summary: It took me forever to make the move to Bluray..thinking upconverted DVDs would be good enough for me. I finally decided to give Bluray a try, but skeptically thought I'd be returning the unit after comparing it to an Oppo 970 upconverting player. This player is far better than I expected or even hoped! Bluray picture quality is outstanding, and clearly better than upconverted Standards. I would say 25% better than Standard DVDs.
Summary: I've never felt so conflicted about a piece of home theater gear in my life. On the one hand, the BD-P3600 offers very good to excellent audio and video performance on DVDs and Blu-ray Discs as well as some great internet streaming features. On the other hand the "PC Streaming" feature is frustratingly hard to use and unreliable to the point that I finally gave up trying to get it to work.
Summary: Ich habe mich für das Gerät entschieden, da es in diversen Tests sehr gut abgeschnitten hat und da ich bereits einen Samsung Fernseher habe. Anschluss, Inbetriebnahme - alles gut. Die ersten DVDs anschauen - perfekt. CDs hören - klasse. Warum aber kaufe ich einen Blue-Ray Player, wenn mittlerweile bei 15 neu gekauften Blue-Rays nach etwa 20 Minuten Spielzeit Hänger in Bild und Ton auftreten, die ein Anschauen unmöglich machen?
Summary: Auch wenn ich hier nur den Inhalt manch anderer Rezessionen wiederhole: Positiv - Das Gerät sieht recht gefällig aus, die Bedienung über die oben angebrachten Sensortasten ist mal was anderes. Da das Gerät bei mir relativ weit unten steht finde ich sie besser als vorne angebrachte Tasten. Feedback gibt's aber prinzipbedingt nur über einen Ton, den man wohl auch ausschalten kann.
