Samsung - BD-P3600 Blu-Ray Player works like a charm
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I am very satisfied with this player. It does a beautiful job of playing Blu-Ray disks and the image is immaculate as is the audio (the primary reason for buying any player). Netflix streaming is great (it also streams in HD where the content is available - much nicer than the image on a PC). I also love the Pandora internet radio and the ability to stream videos on youtube. I had no trouble connecting to my network. It was very easy.
Excerpt: I really love this bluray player, and being able to stream Netflix and Pandora right from the player. The only thing is that a lot of the times when I am trying to stream Netflix, either the sound doesnt work or the next time the picture won't work and I have to keep rebooting the bluray player and my whole tv system to try it over again. I have upgraded the firmware multiple times and it keeps doing this.
Excerpt: I recently purchased this player after looking at several different ones. It works great for the most part. I have noticed a few issues with the wireless connection sometimes having trouble connecting, and also there a few time it has gotten stuck on some blu-ray's disc menus and would not allow me to select anything. I have to restart the unit. Overall even though this little hiccups have happened I do still really like the player.
Excerpt: I have had this Blu Ray for a while, and love the picture quality of DVDs but especially Blu Ray disks on it. I have also used it to stream television shows and movies from Netflix, and it worked wonderfully. It is very nice to have the Smart Hub system that has the home page for the Apps and everything. There are also a lot of sharing capabilities through the Blu Ray.
Summary: I got this player because of it's Netflix and Pandora capabilities. This player has never failed me at all. The initial set-up and firmware upgrade was a little challenge, nevertheless I got through it just fine. The moment the player was connected to the wifi the firmware upgrade automatically prompted. Understanding the manual and following it correctly is crucial. It's wifi capability greatly depends on the seed subscription.
Summary: This Samsung Blu-ray player does all it says it will do, the WiFi set up was very easy. Netflix works fine when my ISP Broadband connection is working at paid for bandwith, (Oceanic Time Warner Cable on Kauai is not in the top 10 for internet and not worth the price, but on an Island you have very few options). The only down side of the player is that it will not play DVD+R disks and stream from external HD boxes in formats other then Divx and avi.
Summary: All the blames about PC Streaming goes to one single thing : when the player identifies the shared computer, it asks us to enter the USER NAME (WHICH IS INFACT "NAME OF THE PC" (most people including me gets confused by this prompt and tries to enter USER Name which is wrong!! --FOR Eg.
Excellent Blue-ray Player! Best when used with a Samsung TV

Summary: I bought this gift for my son who just graduated from college. We connected it to our Samsung LN52A650 LCD TV set we bought earlier this year with an HDMI cable and the combination is perfect. If you turn on the Blue-ray player it automatically turns on the TV and selects the correct input. This functionality comes from Samsungs ANYNET feature which is built into both their TV and the Blue-ray player.
