Excerpt: It's hats off (and quite possibly wallets out) for Samsung . With the BD-P4600 Blu-ray player, it provides a welcome change from the visual norm. Styled to ape the finish of the company's splendid 7000 / 7020 series of LCD screens (with a choice of clear or red accents), it's a taste of a Bang & Olufsen-esque high design at a fraction of the price.
Pros: Unique looks, simple to set up, vibrant Blu-ray and DVD images
Cons: Not the last word in motion tracking, mediocre sound, choosy about handshaking with other devices via HDMI
Summary: While we’re impressed by how quickly Blu-ray player prices have plummeted lately, we’re less keen on the fact that they all look pretty much the same. The most outlandish design touch we’ve seen so far is the Sony BDP-S550’s blue fascia, and that’s not saying much. Fortunately, you can always rely on Samsung to try something different.
