Samsung BD-P2550


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.

7.1 analog support including dts-ma decoding (firmware update), HQV DVD upscaling excellent, 1080i50 > 1080i60 support

So I got my Samsung simply because the Best Buy I went to had virtually nothing else in stock and I needed a new BD player. I must say I wasn't disappointed at all with my purchase. There were initially a few things here or there to be nit-picky about...

Great picture quality and audio options. Sleek looking player with nice remote set up. USB and ethernet port in back for updates and 1GB internal memory. Netflix streaming

Really annoying bonus view icons need to be turned off. No wireless option for updates. Firmware updates only cause more problems

Samsung BD-P2550


I really like this player. The only negative is the time it takes to fast forward and rewind and chapter skip. The player also seems to have a problem with Netflix streaming, at times it loads the stream and then you see a second of picture and it goes...

HQV upscaling and HQV Blu-ray stability makes it one of the best looking Blu-ray players

Takes way too long to skip chapters and fast forward or reverse

Loading times. The bottom line: 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. Pros: Excellent picture (using 720p monitor) ;...
