Samsung BD-P2500 Blu-Ray Review

 

Supports Netflix downloads, BD-Live ; Great image quality

No DTS-HD support ; Slow at skipping chapters

The Samsung BD-P2500 outputs terrific images, but it's expensive and has a few shortcomings.

The Samsung BD-P2500 outputs terrific images, but it's expensive and has a few shortcomings.

Great image quality ; Supports Netflix downloads, BD-Live

Slow at skipping chapters ; No DTS-HD support

Despite those lapses, the Samsung BD-P2500 is an excellent machine. You get what you pay for. In a Blu-ray player, a great-looking image can outweigh such shortcomings and a high price

Editors' note (March 30, 2009) : The rating of this player has been changed since its initial publication to reflect changes in the marketplace.

Excellent image quality on Blu-ray Discs; Profile 2.0 compliant; onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, plus bit-stream output; Netflix streaming; 1GB onboard memory; 7.1 analog audio outputs.

PlayStation 3 may still offer a better value for some buyers; some disc compatibility issues; relatively slow loading times.

The Samsung BD-P2500 adds Netflix to an already well-featured and top-performing Blu-ray player, with only some minor disc compatibility issues giving us pause.

Can Samsung redeem some earlier missteps in Blu-ray technology with a new BD player that just about does it all? Note: review has been updated to include results of a firmware upgrade which adds DTS-HD decoding.

Excellent image quality ; Plays Blu-ray and supports Profile 2.0 online content ; Netflix streaming ; Full set of connections to home theater equipment

Lacks DTS-HD Master Audio decoding ; Slow disc loading times

The on-screen menus are very nicely designed and are organized to be user friendly. On a side note, for such a high-end Blu-ray player, Samsung's logo when you first turn on the device is one of the worst logos ever seen. It's very jaggy and looks very...
