Samsung BD-P4600 Blu-ray Player

 

Back in 2006, Samsung was the first manufacturer to release a Blu-ray player to the masses. It contributed to the format's less than stellar launch reportedly due to an incorrect default setting in the video processing chip set used in the player.

Once connected, the player informed me that a new update was available (1.14) and asked me if I wanted to update the firmware. It took more than 17 minutes, which seemed like an eternity compared with my OPPO, which takes less than five minutes.

Samsung BD-P4600 review

 

While we're impressed by how quickly Blu-ray player prices have plummeted lately, we're less keen on the fact that they all look pretty much the same. The most outlandish design touch we've seen so far is the Sony BDP-S550's blue fascia, and that's not...

Samsung BD-P4600

 

A perfectly reasonable product comprehensively spoiled by connectivity issues

Unique looks ; simple to set up ; vibrant Blu-ray and DVD images

Not the last word in motion tracking ; mediocre sound ; choosy about handshaking with other devices via HDMI
