Pros: The unit is compact, and easy to set up for BD live. The visuals and audio are excellent.
Cons: No composite, or component connections, though no worse than PS3 in that way. Connections for the HDMI and optical seem a little loose. No obvious problems, though sometimes the player doesn't seem to respond to the touch buttons or the remote.
Summary: This player is nice. Full of features and compatibility. I'm sure that it plays bluray disc just fine, i've just not purchased any due to high cost and the x264 rips being available on the Net. It plays x264 movies just fine from disc or thumbdrive. Netflix is pretty nice on the device. Only 4 stars on rating due to the network support is kinda crappy.
Summary: great picture, has some funny bugs I can't seem to work around. Wireless connection and commands a little funky, super cool case/body style. Odd DVD loading made finding a location for the unit limiting. From the side, plan in advance for future purchase. Menus could be easier, but ok. Using with Samy 8000 series LED TV. Price was great value. Love the built in streaming, though our Roku is better. Streaming picture quality is very good even with non HD stream.
"Great Buy, easy set-up, perfect picture. Love it"

Pros: It took me 20 minutes from the time I brought it in the front door to when I was watching movies from my instant key on netflix. I have used it every day since I bought it. Thank you Samsung for making such a great product!
Cons: I know it isn't Samsung's fault but I really wish there was a way to watch Hulu content on the player. I don't have a BlockBuster account so I could use that button for something different.
Samsung BD-P4600 very nice overall, but remote is drawback

Summary: The Blu Ray player is a very nice addition to any entertainment system, with its sleek and minimal design. Doesn't take up a whole bunch of space, and its capability to be wall mounted is awesome! It has two IR sensors, one on the side and one on top depending on whether or not you lay it flat, wallmount it, or have it propped up using the stand at a slight incline.
Summary: I received this unit as a gift for Christmas. I researched it before and knew it was a perfect match for my Samsung entertainment system. The BD Live works wonder as soon as I hook it up via HDMI. Wireless network hookup was a snap and I'm able update all firmwares to stream Netflix, YouTube, Blockbuster, and Pandora. So far, everything works great and the quality is amazing.
Summary: The thing does everything it claims it will do. Setup was a breeze, including the wireless setup. It finds the wireless networks it can see, and asks you which one. Assuming you're a smart network user, and have set an encryption key on your home wireless network, you do have to know that "password," of course.
Summary: I don't have a lot of time for this - so I will keep it short. The Blu Ray is beautiful, but it does attract a lot of dust and fingerprints need to be wiped off everytime you touch the front of it. The wireless USB does stick out like a sore thumb - however, it is awesome to be able to watch Netflix movies on your TV via streaming.
Summary: I bought this player mainly because of its stylish design and would match perfectly when I get a LED TV, most likely Samsung LED to match TOC style. This player has pretty fast disc loading speed. Setup for network and online streaming is simple. However the menu and remote may not be very easy to use. Wireless works fine for me without any major issues.
Pros: Design and Styling, Good disc loading, good online streaming.
