Summary: I bought this not wanting to spare any expense, just wanted a good Blu-ray player that would also play Divx, xvid, and mkv files, and being such an expensive player I assumed this one would do a good job. Wrong.
Summary: I was very excited after I ordered the BD-P4600 player, only to be extremely disappointed in this unit!! I have a Samsung 46" LCD TV, that I'm extremely happy with, and, a Samsung HD camcorder that I'm pleased with for the price.. I purchased both from Amazon..
Pros: Sleek design Played blu rays wireless dongle supplied (*it seemed slow, but very usable) good internet streaming and options easy setup
Cons: Received the player as a gift and after the latest firmware update the player stopped playing DVDs. It did still play blu ray (or at least the three I had available). After calling Samsung (points for being able to get through quickly and to someone who seemed at least mildly knowledgeable), the ...
Summary: I am not an electronics sophisticate, although I enjoy and use my gadgets. I bought this item for instant netflix downloading, and it was a snap to set up (had it two weeks and have not even cracked open the manual). I use wireless; downloads very quickly.
Summary: Unit came with factory firmware 1.0 that supported Netflix and Pandora internet streaming. Original firmware also allowed to unlock the unit to region free DVD player (did not affect Blue-Ray) via IR codes but that "feature" was removed with further updates. Firmware process may be little tricky.
Pros: Sleek design, can be mounted on the wall (hanging brackets included). Most media formats supported. Network capabilities via wired or wireless connection (wireless USB adapter included). Firmware can be updated via direct internet connection, USB or CD with firmware file on it. Netflix, Pandora, ...
Cons: Firmware updates leaves room for improvements. Samsung customer support is a disaster!
Summary: I bought this unit mainly because of its ability to play Neflix and Pandora. It worked nice for about a week. After receiving and update(optional) the unit was bricked. Now I can't play, DVD and cannot even connect the unit to a TV. I called Samsung and the unit will be serviced.
Summary: I like the design of the player, and for playing Blue Ray disks, it seems to work fine. Although my Blue Ray library is still pretty limited. Sadly, I'm less than happy with the players ability to play DVDs. Several of my DVDs will not play in this unit.
Summary: I bought this product based on its looks and good reviews. As far as looks go it is very attractive. Its black and shiny and the blue light display on the unit with the touch screen is great. Although it does tend to collect dust so you have to keep wiping it to retain that good look.
A noisy player that has serious problems playing mp3 files
18 September 2009
Summary: I had great hopes for this machine, but while it plays Blu-ray discs well enough, it has an annoyingly noisy fan, lists but fails to play most mp3s stored on CD-R or DVD-R that I have tried (they play without problem on my old Panasonic DV-585 and every other mp3 compatible CD or DVD player I have...
