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.
Pros: Excellent Picture on Blu Rays Can Play AVI, and other video formats, directly from USB Hard drive of Thumb Drive, Or burned on DVD. Can Stream files from your network.
Cons: It would be a 5 from me, if not for 2 things. Wireless signal is pretty poor. AVI movies that are paused, will not remember the spot if you wait longer than 3-5 mins. It goes back to menu, and you have to Fastforward all the way to where you were.
Pros: got it a year ago. Back then, streaming you tube and netflix was awesome! I've moved on to PC streaming now and just download whatever movies i want on my computer and then stream to my big screen. Life is good!
Cons: the first firmware sucked. It was buggy and i would have to cut the player off and back on a couple times. Now its much better but should be mentioned. I don't like that i'm stuck with just netflix, blockbuster, youtube, and pandora. Want hulu.
Pros: Speedy startup times. Beautiful psuedo-piano black finish. PC connected streaming.
Cons: Its a fingerprint magnet as mr. moskovciak stated. The unit i recieved only had select features; in particular, netflix and bloggers.com. The general assumption that if i update it, it will brick itself.
Pros: 5.1 surround sound, full HDMI connections and HDTV, you will get the full effect of this BD player. With wireless access you can take advantage of Pandora online music. Wireless connection automatically notifies you of BD firmware updates, IMPORTANT!
Cons: Playback buttons are located on top of unit. However, if you use remote it is not an issue.
