Review: Samsung BD-P4600

 

[Editor's note: we tested a new version of this player with an updated software. The Netflix streaming worked perfectly. Because of this we upped the...

High-end, spacey design. Loaded with features, including ability to mount it on the wall. Loads Blu-ray discs exceptionally fast. High-quality playback

Complicated initial setup. Cramped underside port-connection compartment. Overpriced for what it delivers

Samsung BD-P4600 - Blu-ray disc player review:

 

Samsung likes to say its "Touch of Color" design scheme elevates products to become a "work of art," but really it comes down to three main principles: rounded corners, translucent red highlights, and a glossy black finish. The Samsung BD-P4600 is the...

Unique design; can be wall-mounted; excellent image quality on Blu-ray movies; Wi-Fi USB dongle included; Netflix and Pandora streaming; superfast operational speed and disc loading; Profile 2.0 compatible; onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD...

Costs more than a PS3; unusual design won't fit all decors; compartment for connectivity is cramped; PC streaming setup is difficult.

Samsung's BD-P4600 Blu-ray player is packed with features and its unique design makes it wall-mountable, but most buyers will be better off with the step-down BD-P3600.

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's Sleek BD-P4600 Blu-ray Player Lightning Review

 

The Gadget: Samsung's startlingly thin BD-P4600 "Touch of Color" connected Blu-ray player—geared to a style-conscious buyer who likes hanging electronics on walls.

And soon saw Arnold emerging naked from a molten sphere of energy

Samsung BD-P4600 review

 

World's slimmest Blu ray player is a joy to use

Original styling ; Slim proportions ; Fast disc loading ; Good multimedia management

Average DVD scaling ; Limited connectivity ; No internet features (unlike its competition)

A good option for those who want to have something more than just a Blu-ray player
