Summary: It works well right out of the box. It plays my bluray discs, DVD's, and streams netflix without any problem. I am very happy with my purchase. I had a lower model samsung (BD-p1500) which didn't stream netflix so I upgraded. I'm happy I didn't listen to the reviews. My entire theatre system is Samsung and I haven't had any issues with any component.
Summary: So far the Samsung 4600 has delivered beyond expectations. The picture quality is amazing. I specifically purchased a Samsung in order to view Netflix streamed movies. Although the picture quality on the streaming movies isn't 'blu-ray' it's still a great convince. I'm also a have of having Pandora online. Overall i'm enjoying this purchase and i hope it doesn't break down as others have mentioned.
Summary: I'm very surprised at the number of mixed reviews on this blu-ray player, because I've been VERY pleased with mine. The set up was very simple and I was immediately able to connect to my home network and receive Netflix streaming movies through my existing account. Honestly, my total set-up time was less than 20 minutes after the package arrived and I've encountered no trouble playing any of my other non blu-ray DVDs.
Summary: This is the form factor and set of features I have been waiting a long time for. Most everything you need for media is built into this unit in a very sleek, sexy package. We have the player mounted on the wall right under the TV and not only does it look great (you can hide all the wires), it is very accessible. We are able to download and watch instant movies from Netflix with no problems. Very, very cool. So far, it plays our existing DVD's and CD's without issues.
BD-P4600 is a Superior Blu-Ray with all the Bells and Whistles!

Summary: This is a fantastic blu-ray player. I read the reviews and was hesitant but I knew how great Amazon was with returning something if I wasn't happy, so I took a chance. I am so glad I did. I've had it for more than a month now and LOVE IT!! I have tried every kind of DVD in it, older DVD's from my library, new Blu-ray ones and even some I had copied on my computer or made on my VHS to DVD transfer machine. It played ever single one of them with no problem what so ever!!
Summary: Far and away the best DVD player I have ever had. It's design is great and the fact that you can use Netflix online and Blockbuster online is a real selling point. Easy setup for everything too. Will buy another one for the other room soon.
Summary: The interface is smooth, the look is sleek, the drive motion is smooth, no noise, its just a TRUE WORK OF ART of have on your tv stand. I have been running it all day since I received it watching DVD's & as many blu-rays as I could fit in a day & its marvelous. OH & the wi-fi setup was BREEZY AND it automatically downloaded & installed its updated firmware WITH TRUE EASE. So far no complaints & VERY impressed.
Summary: Received the BD player from Amazon the next day. Shipping was FAST! About the player. -Love the stlyling (matches my Samsung TOC Plasma TV) and the features (WiFI). -Out of the box, basic hook up was easy (including listending to Pandora and watching NetFlix and YouTube). -The only issue I had was file sharing (computer to BD). The player could "see" the computer but could not access the files. I called Samsung Customer Service for assistance. Service was lacking..
Summary: Comments about Samsung BD-P4600 Blu-ray Disc Player: I use it as my Blue-ray player on my desk, with my mini-mac, 32" LED Sammie, and Bose Wave speaker system. Blows me away, this has turned out to be my dream as a boy, morphed from an earplug in my ear from a transitor radio, fast forward, to my wildest expectaions. Oh, yeah, use my Bose noise cancelling headphones too. I am one lucky fellow!!!! Truely plug and play. Absolutely intuitive to set up and ejoy.
Pros: Backwards Compatible, Classy looks, DVD Upconversion, Easy Set-Up, Excellent Image Quality, Good Connections, Good Soundtrack Support, Upgradeable
Summary: OK, I bought a 52inch Samsung LCD TV in Jan 09, which I love. But, it was right before they added all the features to watch Netflix, Youtube, Pandora, etc through the set. Enter the Samsung BD-P4600. Not only do I now have all those cool features through the Blu-Ray player, I also have Blu-Ray capability, and since I have the Samsung TV I can use one remote to control both.
