The Samsung BD-P2550 adds Netflix and Pandora to an already well-featured and top-performing Blu-ray player, with only some minor disc compatibility issues giving us pause.

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 and Pandora 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.

It's been well over two years since the first Blu-ray disc (BD) player arrived in stores, yet only now are we seeing models that provide full support for Blu-ray's features. Sure, there are plenty of players that will play HD movies, but not many that...

Excellent DVD upconversion. Supports BD-Live and Bonus View. Integrated Netflix video and Pandora audio streaming.

A bit pricey. Above-average power consumption.

This talented player not only handles Blu-ray and standard DVDs with aplomb, it also streams Netflix and Pandora content.

"Good While It Lasted"

 

Shortly after the warranty is up, the machine crapped out on us.

I liked the simplicity of installation, and connection to my wireless internet.

The machine lasted only a little over a year, and then with little warning it just stopped working. Picture was always distorted, and the sound was off. The image, on the rare occasion that we could get it to play would freeze up every few minutes.
