Samsung BD-P1590

 

Bought cheap at Costco. Has worked okay, but successive firmware updates resulted in no DVD playing, and finally a bricked unit. I'm very unhappy with Samsung and won't buy their technology again.

Cheap, streams Netflix and Pandora, can update firmware via USB memory, nice front panel touch controls

Won't play DVDs after firmware update, bricked after firmware update, expensive proprietary WiFi dongle, slow to respond to remote, slow to connect to WiFi

Samsung BD-P1590 Blu-ray Player

 

My son found this player at our local Sam's Club brand new for $150.00. I have enjoyed it on a daily basis. It especially makes my remastered gold plated CDs sound superior.

Plays my Blu Ray films, and gold plated remastered CDs to their optimum capacity

None that I can speak of in six months of ownership

Great entertainment device!

Disappointed

 

I bought the Samsung BD1590 primarily to watch Netflix movies. I plugged in a (functioning) wireless adapter and couldn't get the player to recognize it. I contacted Samsung with the Live Chat. The Tech told me the only adapter that works is the...

The player works fine as stand-alone or on ethernet cable

The player is very sensitive to heat and needs ample ventilation or it won't work

SAMSUNG'S NICE SUPRISE! Best of Class!

 

After several generations of Blu-Ray players, this is an amazing unit for the price. Outside of the very first unit, I'd had every Samsung out there, and this would be the 6th generation of machines from the Korean company. While much smaller than...

Many Entertainment Options. Ease of Use. Picture Quality and Remote. PRICE
