Samsung's Fancy Blu-ray Player Will Have You Up Ag...

 

Its glossy black finish and polished Darth Vader design make Samsung's newest Blu-ray box, the BD-P4600, stand out from every other player on the market.

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

Editors' note : Although our testing of the Samsung BD-P4600 was largely positive, Samsung Blu-ray players have consistently scored low with CNET users. We examined this issue extensively in this blog , and it's worth considering before making a buying...

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.

If you are looking for a very compact and versatile Blu-Ray player that does not take ages to load discs, then consider the Samsung BD-P4600. It is very flexible as far as setting up your network connection (WiFi or Ethernet); however, the initial link...

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 Wall-Mountable Blu-ray Player

 

Samsung's BD-P4600 player sets a new standard for Blu-ray with a revolutionary slim, wall-mountable design and wireless connectivity - opening a portal to engaging HD entertainment from the sofa

Consumer review by:

We have owned the Samsung BD-P4600 for over a year.

 

The player does well on Netflix, which is the only internet content we download. However, at this point, it will not play a Blu-Ray disc all the way through without "hunting" and freezing. It does even worse on DVD discs. Our desired home theater...

Style, wall mount. Wireless dongle to utilize home wireless network

Have had many firmware upgrades, which have been dutifully installed to no avail. The player started out playing Blu-Ray discs flawlessly, but has never played a DVD all the way through. All firmware upgrades installed, failed to improve anything

Consumer review by:

Will not play several titles and updates don't fix it

 

There is a loooooong list of titles this player after several firmware upgrades won't play. Fantastic Mr Fox, Precious, Goodfellas ( menu doesn't work but movie plays), Hot Tub Time Machine, Shutter Island, Mad Men Season 1 and 2 ( maybe season 3 also...

none at all.. stay way from Samsung blu ray players

won't play several blu-ray titles, customer service sucks, long delay between pushing a button ( ie. stop ) and the player performing the function,player sometimes becomes unresponsive, remote is terrible, very low dependability, over priced
