Samsung BD-P3600 Blu-Ray Review

 

Extremely fast operation ; Superior Blu-ray images

Physically clumsy ; Difficult networking setup

The Samsung BD-P3600 delivers great-looking images and Internet streaming. But it should be a lot easier to use than it is in practice.

Review: Samsung BD-P3600 Blu-ray player

 

This Blu-ray player delivers great-looking images and Internet streaming. But it falls down on the little things.

Extremely fast operation ; Superior Blu-ray images

Difficult networking setup ; Physically clumsy

Connect the BD-P3600 to your home network (and thus to the Internet) and you get four sources for streaming entertainment. One of the four, Blockbuster on Demand, lets you rent or buy the right to stream the movies of your choice (with TV shows...

Lots useful of features, excellent quality and wireless

Wireless setup is not clear, upgrades take forever and price was too high when I bought it

Great for playing Blu-Ray, DVD's and Netflix. Upgrades could be faster.

Samsung has delivered some solid Blu-ray offerings in the past. The company hasn't been shy about including high-end video processing, and it's quick to adopt new features for its lineup. The new BD-P3600 is no exception. It comes with $100 tacked onto...

The setup menus are very simple and a bit lacking in terms of tweakability compared with the Panasonic DMP-BD60. I was also disappointed to find that some of the audio options default to undesirable settings. For example, dynamic range compression...

Samsung strikes again with a full-featured Blu-ray player offering strong performance, quick disc loading and excellent internet streaming capabilities. But a far-from-perfect local networking feature keeps the BD-P3600 from earning our highest rating.

In trying to add robust multi-media features to their Blu-ray player line, Samsung seems to have bitten off a bit more than they could chew with the PC streaming feature. But for those who don't need local media streaming, the audio and video features...

Price-wise, the BD-P3600 is the middle child in Samsung's new trio of Blu-ray players, but it offers one feature missing from the higher-priced, wall-mountable BD-P4600: multichannel analog audio outputs. This Profile 2.0 player also offers Netflix VOD...
