Samsung BD-P1600

 

The BD-P1600 is Samsung's most affordable, feature-packed Blu-ray player yet.

Fast start-up. Supports Netflix and Pandora multimedia streaming. Updated remote and menus.

Add-on memory required for BD-Live support. Minor BD Live compatibility issue.

Samsung BD-P1600 Blu-Ray Review

 

Very good imaging on Blu-ray discs ; Netflix and Pandora streaming

Annoying flap covers front panel controls ; Disappointing imaging on DVDs

Despite incorporating a few bone-headed design decisions, the Samsung BD-P1600 is a very good player for its price.

Samsung BD-P1600 review

 

Samsung was the first manufacturer with a standalone Blu-ray player, but in 2008 it often felt like the company was struggling to keep up with Panasonic. When Panasonic released the first Profile 2.0 player , Samsung was still shipping Profile 1.1...

Excellent image quality on Blu-ray movies; Netflix and Pandora streaming; speedy load times and operational speed; Profile 2.0 compliant; onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio; Wi-Fi compatible, with purchase of USB dongle.

Design marred by an annoying flip-down panel; Wi-Fi dongle is very expensive.

The Samsung BD-P1600 has a great mix of features and performance for a standalone Blu-ray player, with only its annoying design holding it back.

Samsung BD-P 1600

 

Excellent HDTV picture with 24p., Automatic film-mode detection for DVDs., Bitstream HD audio.

Disc drive is too loud., Poor photo display.

Multimedia Although the 1600 has a network connection on its rear panel and even supports an optional WLAN stick, its multimedia still can't measure up to that of its two bigger brothers, the BD-P 3600 and BD-P 4610. The network interface can only...

Review: Samsung BD-P1600 Blu-ray player

 

This Blu-ray player has an annoying front-panel cover, but offers terrific color performance and even has streaming video options.

Very good imaging on Blu-ray discs ; Netflix and Pandora streaming

Annoying flap covers front panel controls ; Disappointing imaging on DVDs

On the other hand, the BD-P1600 didn't fare well with standard-definition DVDs, which the player must upconvert to 1080p

Samsung BD-P1600 Blu-ray Disc PlayerReview

 

Samsung's recent sub-$300 wonder combines an impressive array of the best features with stellar audio and video, all in its sleek black chassis.

Although positioned at the lower-end of their current crop, the Samsung BD-P1600 is still a versatile player offering the latest features (Netflix, Pandora, BD-Live, DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD decoding) and performance that the competition would be...

Samsung BD-P1600

 

One of Samsung's latest Blu-ray DVD players, the P1600, is a media powerhouse that delivers good picture quality along side some excellent multimedia extras. It offers Netflix and Pandora streaming via the Internet as well as full 1080p resolution with...

Netflix and Pandora streaming ; Quick start-up times ; Excellent 1080p video processing ; Inexpensive

No internal memory for BD-Live, thumbdrive required ; Upconverting is a little sketchy

You'll definitely want to look into getting the Samsung BD-P1600 if you are at Netflix subscriber to take advantage of its Watch Instantly capabilities. All you need is an active Netflix account and a broadband connection (the faster, the better) and...

Samsung BD-P1600 Blu-ray player

 

Samsung's BD-P1600 delivers everything you need from a Blu-ray disc player

Excellent image quality with both Blu-ray discs and DVDs, high-definition audio decoding, good operational speed

Build quality could be better, flip-down front is annoying

Samsung’s BD-P1600 does everything you could want a Blu-ray player to do. Great picture quality, plenty of audio decoding support and a speedy interface combine to make it an easy choice. Our only concerns (the build quality and the design) are minor.
