Excerpt: This is a great Blu-Ray Player! When we decided to make the leap from DVDs to Blu-Rays there were several things that were important to us, but the biggest thing was the ability to have the streaming capability from Netflix and other online sites. We tend to watch a lot of tv and movies from the streaming sites so we needed one that could do that quickly. We had also heard horror stories about Blu-Ray players taking a long time to load.
Excerpt: Amazing! I can't say enough about this Samsung DVD player! It was not difficult at all to hook up the wireless and connect to the various services available for streaming. The on screen menu walks you right through it. Whether it be a dvd, blu-ray dvd or watching netflix the picture is incredible! I didn't even realize that there would be such a difference in picture compared to my old (original) dvd player and roku box. The picture quality is off the charts!
Summary: I've owned this player for about 18 months now. Initial setup was tricky because my wireless modem is too far away from the living room to provide a nice stream for videos. Although my PC's worked just fine in the living room, the intense video streaming required of the blu-ray with PC's operating on the same bandwidth, made movies hesitate too much.
Summary: I bought the BD-P3600 after researching the units extensively and subscribing to Netflix. The value is terrific, especially since it includes the wireless LAN adapter. The set-up was quick and easy and the connection to the internet through my 802.11n wireless router has been solid, reliable and smooth in the delivery of both video and audio. Being able to stream video over the internet is especially convenient and seems to be just as high quality as using a DVD.
Summary: I can't imagine how any could find fault with this Blu-ray player. I unboxed it, I attached the old HDMI cable from my previous DVD player, it worked. Total time investment at this point was about 15 minutes. Since I didn't have any Blu-ray discs, (this is my first Blu-ray player), I set up the wireless Ethernet feature. Worked like a charm, no muss no fuss.
Summary: I did an enormous amount of research over the past year--yes year--before purchasing the Samsung BD-P3600. I have no complaints whatsoever. In fact, I have nothing but high praise. I have been a PC user since the Tandy/Apple II-Mac 1970s, but claim no expertise beyond high-intermediate skills, and I had NO problem establishing a successful wireless connection and started immediately streaming remarkably clear, widescreen "HD" netflix and blockbuster streams (a very...
