Got 9 months out of it

By crroal from Montana on 09/10/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Stopped playing standard DVDs after about 9 months. Just says 'This Disc can not be played' and spits it back out. Firmware updates haven't solved it. Enjoyed the player otherwise.

Life of 15 Months?

By Curt215 from Hosuton, TX on 08/14/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Apparently 15 months is the life of this Blu-Ray player. It started making a grinding sound and the read-out was stuck on "Open." According to the Troubleshooting guide, this is a service required failure - so it lived 15 months. Minimum service just to look is about half the cost of a new one. When it did work, picture was fine, but since buttons were not lit they were a little difficult to use. Summary: I am not happy about having to throw this out after 15 months. We spent more to get our Samsung LED TV due to its environmental benefits (lower energy usage, less heat generation, fewer heavy metals). 15 months is not long enough.

Best budget blue ray dvd player I have had.

By kidneydoc from Maryland on 07/15/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The BD P1600 blue ray player does everything it advertised it will and then some. I have had it for about a year now and use it almost every day and it works flawlessly. The picture qualtity is as good or acutually better than the much pricier denon blue ray player and it loads much faster! The internet connectivity took some effort, but now it also works without any problems. For the price, I have not seen any other blue ray dvd player that can come close to the picture quality or performance.

worst purchase ever

By gorfnord from gardner ks on 07/09/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

slow to load, the display hags on load even when it gets to the menu and remote will not work. It makes the most annoying noise when it goes from one function to another sometimes locking up in the process so that you have to turn it off to stop it. Had these issues with one player and returned it but the new one does the same things. Should have purchased the sony for the same price.

Samsung BD Lemon

By Snay from New York, NY on 06/29/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The P1600 worked well for about four months before it died on me. What a useless piece of junk!! Samsung's "great" warranty is one year for parts and 3 months of service. If Samsung is really the top mass-market electronics company, they should stand by parts and labor for a year.

Not good enough

By Ivan007 from Undisclosed on 06/11/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It is slow to load, if you install a USB thumb drive in the front then you have to leave the front lid open, it uses a proprietary wireless card and to top if all off, when you do a firmware update it resets to default parameters!

Good but could be better

By CarGuy from Cali on 05/24/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Loads fairly fast good picture and very easy to use. I don't like the fold down face. It would be OK if it folded up and down by it's self, but it doesn't do either. Pandora could really use a skip button. It has sleep button, but that isn't useful if you only want to skip a song that one time. You can access your favorite videos on You tube if you log in but not favorite channels which I thing would be far more useful.

Waste of Money

By Steakfest from Undisclosed on 05/22/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I wanted to go with a less expensive BD player for our "other" tv watching room. Our Main room has a PS3. I figured with our samsung tvs it would be nice to get a samsung bd player and take advantage of the communication abilities between the devices. Just about the only good thing about the BD player is that it automatically changes the input on my Samsung TV and turns it on for me when i start it up. Apart from that, it's junk. I doesn't respond to the remote, takes forever to load. I just sat down to watch a BD rental from Netflix, and just gave up. I couldn't get the bd player to give me a menu, or let me skip previews, it's basically like an old VCR with a play button, and that's it. I've been happy with my samsung tvs, but i'll stay away from their other peripherals now.

I've only had my player for a couple of months, but must say that I really enjoy it. Streaming Netflix movies has revolutionized my TV viewing. From time to time my connection will freeze, but I assume it is my cable connection in the mountains of Idaho. Love it.

questionable product

By driller from TX on 03/28/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Feature list looks great on paper. The Player runs extremely hot, understandable given the processing. But I question the adequacy of air circulation. Have had issues in 1080p with white flashes across the tv screen and audio interruption on a J_C HD-61fn97 rear projection LCos. Tried different hdmi cords, and even sent it in for repair without resolve. May be a firmware issue. Seemed to work fine with 1080i and component out, and worked fine on girlfriend's LCD. If you make your own media with DVD-+R, you will likely have issues playing it back on this player. Will have to keep my other DVD player around and on my AV shelf, just in case (not samsung) Have had a questionable hx with samsung. Great harddrives, bad printer- liked to shred paper after 6 months, good phones, questionable blu-ray. I guess just expecting it to work is too much.

Terrible

By LtBlue from Charlotte, NC on 03/21/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this a little over a month ago. I first noticed some quirky things about it - it doesnt remember where you stopped a dvd when you restart, the player automatically shuts off after about 15 minutes of pause, if there's a disc in the player it assumes you want to watch the disc rather than letting you choose Netflix, Pandora, or the other internet options. But I figured I could deal with these things so I didnt feel the need to return it. Now all of a sudden the player isnt responding. The window always displays "Close" or "Load" preventing me from playing a disc or watching the internet content. Basically this has been the worst electronics purchase I have ever made. Pay a little more for a better blu-ray!

Performes beyond my expectations...

By bpliedtke from Lisle, IL on 02/26/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

What I really liked about this BluRay player was the ability to connect to Blockbuster Online, YouTube, Pandora and stream Netflix movies. When connecting to the internet, I recommend connecting via an ethernet cable instead of via wi-fi. This delivers faster streaming speeds and avoids potential interruptions with the wi-fi staying connected. I have no problem playing any BluRay discs, it's simple to set up. My only complaint is that you have to flip down the front to input BluRay discs, but it's such a minor inconvenience, overall this is a great player especially for the price.

Good little player

By Kelly307 from Undisclosed on 02/26/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've had this player since the beginning of the year. It has been working great. People don't like the little door cover, but I think it makes the player look nice. We love the Netflix feature. It has "hic-uped" on some Netflix movies, but it's not been a problem. It's probably just our connection at times. Blu-rays look incredible. It's "hic-uped" on a DVD once, but like any thing with a processor, turn it off and back on again, it works like a champion. Would recommend it to anyone.

Won't play all blu ray discs

By skfinch from Undisclosed on 02/25/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This blu ray player does have very good picture and sound quality, however, they seem to have issues keeping up with new disc technology. Their firmware updates are few and far between.

I should have walked away

By MadFred from Atlanta, GA on 02/11/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I saw the player and thought it would be great. Out of the box the wireless network feature was not working. I tried two different wireless network adaptors. Neither one worked. It played the bluray disc fine, but I got it for the other options that it claimed it had like the netfix and youtube. However the only way it will seem to work is if I plug it into my router which is located five rooms away from where i have the TV set up. I will be taking this back tomorrow for a refund and a bluray player that does what it claims to do out of the box.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this Blue-ray player after reading about it in magazines and it didn't let me down. Very easy to hook up to my TV and the picture is amazing. The price is very good and it was just what I needed for a second Blue-ray player in my bedroom where I have a Samsung 40" LED.

greatest Christmas gift

By nontechnogranny from Shelton, CT on 02/06/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very stylish and easy to use - even for this untechnological grandma! I like the Netflix and Pandora features and how simple it is to program my music genre. We unfortunately have an 18 year old television, so the Blu-ray effect is not an option for us at the moment. We do plan on getting an HDtv eventually, so I can only anticipate how awesome the picture will be. But even watching on the old TV, it is clearer than our old VCR/DVD player.

Works Great

By cphdrider from Harrisburg, NC on 02/06/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Worked great out of the box. I had previously purchased a Sumsung BDP3600 that comes with the wireless adapter. However, many problems streaming movies and I returned and exchanged for the Samsung BDP1600 and used a 50ft ethernet cable for streaming. So far, no problems with dropping connection. I do not recommend wireless for streaming.

Very good player

By JohnnyG from Ohio on 02/05/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Managed to get everything working, such as Pandora, Netfix streaming movies, and YouTube, in one day. Connected the unit to a wired 10 mb/s cable router and am enjoying excellent movie quality and speed (no stoppages during movie play). Setting up the internet had to be completed manually, the auto settings wouldn't connect. The 4 colored buttons on the start-up screen manage to lock up the player every time...it works OK if you go to the menu and select your feature from there. If the unit locks up, turn it off and it will restart OK. Standard DVD's are absolutely perfect, BD disks are excellent picture quality, but not perfect. They sometimes fail to load correctly, but a couple of trys gets them going. The ANYNET+ feature works OK, but is incomplete, so even though I have a Samsung UN40B6000 TV, I still end up needing 3 remote controls.

Awesome Blu-ray Player

By Anonymous from Undisclosed on 01/19/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This Blu-ray player is awesome! The picture quality is amazing. It is simple to use along with the easy to use remote. My Samsung Blu-ray player is connected to my Samsung LED TV UN55B8000. As soon as I turn on the Blu-ray player, it connects with and turns on the TV or changes the component option on the TV to the Blu-ray player. This technology makes home theater set up so simple. Another nice feature is that you can connect it to the internet and get software updates. This is important since Blu-ray movies are continually coming out with the new advances and you will need a player that is up to date to play all the different generations of Blu-ray disks

By blurayuser from Undisclosed on 01/17/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The first one we bought was dead out of the box. We brought it back to the store and exchanged it for the same model. Once we got it home it installed quickly and we got up and running within 15 minutes. Clarity of image is great. Like the Netflex interface, however would prefer if I could load up the movie queue via the interface rather than having to go onto a laptop and stage the queue.

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my first Bluray player and I got it on the recommendation of my son who's a genius when it comes to electronics. This player is great because it has the Netflix which I use A LOT. It's got a great design style (the only negative is the flip front cover). It's pretty slim. Doesn't make too much noise. Hooking it up was very easy with an HDMI cable that I bought at the store. The price was a great bargain and I feel like I got a truly magnificent product for my money. Picture Quality is amazing!!!!! I wasn't too keen to upgrade to high definition but after watching Mamma Mia on Bluray with this player I'm SOLD. Thanks Samsung for making such a wonderful product!!!!

I purchased one of these for my Samsung 46inch LED tv and just loved the quality of the picture and features this player has. So I purchased another one for my other Samsung 32inch LED tv that I have in my bedroom. Samsung makes high quality, feature rich products. This Blu Ray player is no exception. Buy this, you won't be disapointed.

Beautifully streams netflix, plays blu-rays!

By FloorMo from SF, CA on 01/05/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We were considering this as an alternative to the PS3, as we wanted netflix streaming capabilities. The blu-ray feature to us is the bonus :-p. It's cheaper than the ps3, does all the things we want that does, and we don't want to pay the extra money for gaming. we bought this with a samsung 40" lcd tv, and the pictures look astounding. We just watched quantum of solace in blu-ray, incredible, and were able to stream hd video from netflix. the only thing i would complain about is that we had some problems in the beginning with a firmware update, but that can be fixed by just rebooting the machine.

Great user-friendly features

By cnw6781 from Undisclosed on 01/02/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I don't know much about our changing technology but Samsung has made it easy. Set up to our Samsung HDTV was exceptionally logical and easy. HDMI cable port to HDMI port. The user-guide is well written and illustrated. The remote is already programed to match our Samsung TV. The remote is logically designed and the clearly labeled. Thanks for not using icons! Perhaps most importantly to us, the TV Source button makes it very easy to access any other devices associated with the TV and DVD player. While there is the usual manufacturer disclaimer about the DVD player not playing all DVD's or perhaps not playing them in good quality, we have been able to use all our DVD's and the picture quality has been outstanding. Samsung seems to have a lot more concern about consumer problems and has consistently worked to make their products more user-friendly.

Warning on Firmware!

By cdog from Undisclosed on 01/02/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The blue ray player is very good and easy to set up but had to return 1st one after down loading new firmware. DO NOT DOWNLOAD locks the player and there is no way of restoring it back to factory setting. Help desk said to take it back or they would send mailing label to ship it back for repairs. Will not be doing upgrade on new one.

Great user-friendly features

By cnw6781 from Undisclosed on 01/02/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I don't know much about our changing technology but Samsung has made it easy. Set up to our Samsung HDTV was exceptionally logical and easy. HDMI cable port to HDMI port. The user-guide is well written and illustrated. The remote is already programed to match our Samsung TV. The remote is logically designed and the clearly labeled. Thanks for not using icons! Perhaps most importantly to us, the TV Source button makes it very easy to access any other devices associated with the TV and DVD player. While there is the usual manufacturer disclaimer about the DVD player not playing all DVD's or perhaps not playing them in good quality, we have been able to use all our DVD's and the picture quality has been outstanding. Samsung seems to have a lot more concern about consumer problems and has consistently worked to make their products more user-friendly.

Great Value in a BluRay Player

By Anvil from Wash DC on 01/01/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is my second Samsung player and is a much better value than my earlier one-2550. Updating the firmware is simple with a network broadband connection and the remote is an approvement over earlier models. I use mine mostly for movie downloads and it has worked great through the first 10 or so downloads. Only con to this product is the skimpy 3 month warranty on labor. Samsung doubles this if you register the product but still 3 months is way too short.

Enjoying BluRay DVD player

By MoparNut from Vermont on 12/30/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Got this for Christmas to go along with our new LED TV that didn't come with hookups to the internet. The player is great, even with our older DVDs the images are so much clearer. We can hook up to our Netflix account and want instant movies with ease. My only complaints - it doesn't remember where you were in the movie; if you turn it off to do something and then come back, it starts the movie all over again. I also wish you could manually open it and not have to rely on the remote to open and close the tray. Overall very pleased with our purchase and would recommend this to anyone. Consumer Reports rates Samsung products as Best Buys and we can see why.

Only two dislikes

By Bean1972 from Undisclosed on 12/30/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The only two complaints I have for this player is that it will not work with our universal remote, so we are stuck with two controllers instead of one and it only supports Samsung Wireless adapter. Other than that the player works great, who knew a picture could be so crisp and detailed! We haven't used all of the functions yet.

By MOVIEGUY from California on 12/29/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I got this item for Christmas and it works great I am useing it for Blu-Ray movies, Pandora, and Netflix they they all work great the only reasaon I didn't give it a overall 5 is because it is not WIFI so I am running a 50ft cat6 cable to it. But overall it is a great buy with great features some don't like the design but I like the flap down design so it hides all the buttons. If looking for a player I would say go with this one.

Almost perfect

By NateCSZ from Minneapolis, MN on 12/27/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The picture quality is quite amazing on all my Blu Ray movies. I even think my old DVDs look stellar. The thing I was most disappointed with was the Netflix streaming. If you are going to have a player that shows amazing HD, make sure your streaming Netflix is amazing HD as well. I found even with the best "reception" my HD movies to be sort of pixelated and grainy. I have the same set up with my Xbox 360 and the picture quality is WAY better through that. Hopefully this will get fixed in a firmware update.

Recieved a Blu-Ray player for Christmas, setup and played a movie first day and enjoyed its quality very much. We own two wonderful Samsung HD Monitors and have enjoyed them through the years.

Doesn't play ALL TITLES

By ryki from Portland Oregon on 12/26/2009


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was very excited to pick this player up. Finally a Blu-Ray Player that is cheaper then the PS3. Well, I am not excited about it any more and I am contemplating returning it. I purchased the New Star Trek Movie in Blu-Ray and it is like watching an old reel movie with all the skipping and cutting out of the audio and video. I have a good TV, Mitsubishi 1080P LCD. I swapped out my HDMI Cable and things got better until an hour into the movie and it started cutting out again. I am extremely frustrated with this player out of the box. I shouldn't have to troubleshoot for hours before I can watch an entire movie.

As soon as I powered the unit own, it immediately allowed me to strem video and audio from Netflix and Pandora! Totally amazing! The Blu-ray has been powered on longer than off because I am always doing something on it! When I get tired off watching movies on Netflix, I am listening to music on Pandora! Awesome and really easy to use!

By bradeja from Undisclosed on 12/19/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love my BD-P1600, except that it does not play the movie files that it advertised (from DVD or USB), Nor does it play any of my DVR's. This is a huge disappointment for me. I hope this will be fixed in the next firmware update, and soon. After visiting several forums, I discovered this is a common problem/annoyance. Please fix this, Samsung. On a positive note, I love the Netflix, Pandora capabilities, and the ability to play mp3's, view photos, etc. Great purchase overall, but it needs to work as advertised.

Works Great

By Sanmar from St. Louis, MO on 12/06/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Since the reviews on Blu Ray players are not the best I purchased the cheapest Samsung Blu Ray to go with my new Samsung LCD TV. It sunk up with the HDMI cable right away without me doing anything else. Some reviews said they don't like the drop down cover on the BD-P1600 but I do. You push open/close it drop downs and shuts automatically. It will also keep the dust out of the disc tray. The only thing I can't rate is the internet hook up since I've not taken the time to do this yet. But can't wait so I can download movies and music.

Excellent Product

By Jim4752 from Utica, NY on 12/06/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is an excellent Blue Ray player for the money. It offers all of the online streaming access you could want. Accessing these features is very easy from the startup menu. Blue Ray disk play is flawless and very crisp. I only wish that you could use any usb wireless card with it. Though attaching it to my lan was simple and the settings were clear. (I am a network admin but I think anyone could do it) It would be nice also if you had some control over the output, ie: Brightness, contrast, sharpness etc. But this is a small thing since you can control these things on the TV. Overall though I would give this player a rating of Excellent in it's price range.

Good value, great picture, features

By Sherman from Madison, Wi on 12/01/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Well... technology is my business too. I'm not sure that this player could be any better. I have never had a DVD not play in this player and the few BD's I own work and look excellent. We use the NetFlix and Pandora streaming all the time and they work flawless lesley. This is with an older model Toshiba DLP. For the price, this is a slam dunk. Haven't had to use customer service on this device, but I own many other Samsung devices and I'm sure it would be excellent. That's one of the major reasons I buy Samsung. Just try to get Toshiba to troubleshoot your BD, best of luck with that.

Bought it at a great price for all of the features it offers. Setup was very fast and easy. Been watching and streaming movies all the time with no problems. I would recommend this to anyone! Pandora radio is also great to have in my living room. I plan on buying a good receiver to plug into the Samsung player.

No Blu-Ray Picture, Poor DVD Quality

By F15Ken from Utah on 11/30/2009


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Purchased this player on 28 Nov. I don't find this box as exciting as most suggest. I have a 52" Samsung LCD TV and thought this would be easy to connect and enjoy. Not so. When connected via HDMI, (HDMI 1.3b cable) there is no picture on the TV. The TV source shows the player as connected but nothing plays. Disk is playing on the player but black screen on TV. Connecting via Component does show a picture but the color and aspect are both distorted and there are static lines running through the picture and it blinks out complete about every 30 seconds. I still have tweaking to do but am not impressed at the outset. With regard to the documentation, it is contradictory as to what DVD formats are playable. On several retail web sites there are lists of compatible formats but these do not match the supplied documentation. According to the Samsung User's manual, this player is compatible with very few formats. I have not tested any yet as It isn't working well at the moment. I am hoping to resolve my current issues but this is certainly no plug and play device. BTW, technology is my business and getting this player to work is a challenge, even for me.

Bottom Line:

My wife and I were replacing a DVD player and were considering Blue Ray. Our purchase of this player was our Christmas present to ourselves and we have been very impressed with the ease of set up and performance. The picture and the sound quality on our Insignia HD TV was greatly improved with the use of this player. I would highly recommend this player to anyone who appreciates value and quality.

Good for Blu Rays But...

By BenS from Undisclosed on 11/28/2009


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Had a couple of problems playing old DVDs to the point that I just use my old DVD player instead of the blu ray. Also had problem getting surround sound audio from this, but after fidgeting with some settings that still don't make much sense to me, I finally figured it out. Was hoping that sort of thing would be automatic at this point in time.

One major drawback

By HomeTheaterNut from Columbia, SC on 11/25/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love and use the features of You Tube and Pandora quite often. I find that the Netflix feature on my Xbox 360 is more user friendly than on my BD-P1600. Picture and overall operation of this player is good. The one major drawback is that you cannot display the time remaining on a disc. In my opinion, it is inexcusable to not have this time remaining feature. I want to know if I have 15, 30, 45 minutes left in a movie so I can decide whether to stop it and continue later or to finish it right then. My best solution is to pause the disc and calculate myself how much time is left by subtracting minutes played from total minutes in the disc. Who wants to do this each time???? Not me. It seems to me this would be a simple firmware update fix. I've submitted my request to Samsung and have not heard back.

Have 2 players connected to TV

By cinco777 from Bay Area, CA on 11/17/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

CNET review shows DVD+R supported. Not so. I need DVD+R for slide shows. Based on CNET review, I bought BD-P1600. On opening box, user manual said DVD+R is not supported and phone call to Samsung confirmed that they do not support DVD+R. I planned to return unit. However, after redoing my research of the other brands and not finding one that was as feature rich with excellent video/audio, I decided to keep my Samsung BD-P1600 and KEEP my Sony DVD player as the Sony does read my DVD+R slide shows. My Samsung is connected to TV via HDMI and my Sony is now connected to TV via Component cables (was HDMI connect). I updated my firmware via the front USB port. After reading the Internet forums, I'm concerned about future firmware updates as numerous users have had their players rendered inoperable ("bricked") by firmware updates. I am network connected via cable. I was very pleased with the Network Setup instructions and had my network recognized and working in 10 minutes time. I'm very pleased with the performance of Netflix, Pandora, and YouTube. Blu-ray Instant Viewing via Netflix delivers an awesome HD quality video and the sound via my Yamaha receiver (optical connection) is great. My first Blu-ray disc is the movie "UP" and I couldn't be more pleased with its video quality and sound on my Panasonic Plasma TV and Yamaha Receiver.

By KACHO from Jacksonville, NC on 11/15/2009


Bottom Line:

I wanted the HD experience from the start, so the same day I bought my SAMSUNG 55' LED I got this nice little piece of gear. Setup was a cinch with HDMI cables. The boxy look is retro but it so it goes with me decor. It is NETFLIX/PANDORA ready so connecting it to the WWW is a must to get the most of this product. it does the job.

Doesn't work all the time

By sclinto from Undisclosed on 11/14/2009


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Every time I try to play a blu-ray disc it stops responding to remote control or front panel button input. It appears to be working but does not respond and the only way to get it to do anything is to unplug it. This is not something that happens occassionaly, it happens every time. The disc has to be in the player when it starts for it to work. This is quite irritating especially since it is so slow loading discs. I was hoping that a firware update would fix this, but it continues to be a problem.

By bjrichison from Dayton, OH on 11/13/2009

Fast loading, simple enough for even a person challenged in the area of disc operatiton to use. I have had mine for a month and have enjoyed many Blu Ray discs and regular discs on the player. Easy to set up and operate. I am anxious to start using the Netflix feature. I feel this is an added plus. My wife can even operate the Blu Ray. And that is amazing.

Fast loading Blu-ray

By WisconsinAl from Hartland, Wisconsin on 11/10/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This player loads Blu-ray discs a LOT faster than our one year old Samsung Blu-ray home theater unit. Got this Blu-ray player as part of a great deal with a Samsung LN46B630 TV. The two work together very well, except for a minor irritating 'Anynet' trait that is also found in the earlier Samsung Blu-ray player. When only ejecting a disc, the TV automatically switches the input to the player, needing to be manually reset back to cable. Also, when finished watching a movie on the player, it isn't smart enough to switch back to the last used input (the cable) and needs manual attention to switch back. This is not a real problem for me, but some of the less 'tech savy' users of this set get all flustered and start pressing buttons and getting confused. All in all though... a very capable Blu-ray player.

Improved next generation

By Britboy51 from Undisclosed on 11/04/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I just got the BD1600 having purchased a BD1500 last November. It cost less, has more features and a sleeker design. The BD1500 stopped working after 11 months with a three month warrantee so I hope the new model has a longer working life. So far I have no complaints, its a faster start up and very easy to set up and use.

WIFI does not work on BD-P1600

By Luckylindy from Undisclosed on 10/20/2009


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this product to be able to stream Netflix and Pandora. My Computer is 40' from the Blue Ray player and the best signal strength I received was 1 bar and it is not able to hold the signal. I have an Apple Airport router but have also tried Netgear and Linksy. Price is not the problem . It simply does not work.

By ILikeMovies from Undisclosed on 09/28/2009


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this player about a month ago and and happy with most of the features except: -Doesn't play some BluRay movies I bought - for example "The Dirty Dozen", which uses an MPEG codec Installing the latest firmware did NOT resolve this problem This is my first Samsung purchase in a long time and I am disappointed. I Cant recomment this player as long as it does not play retail movies

Excellent value

By Nacra from Undisclosed on 08/08/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

P1600 BlueRay player has excellent features for the price. I have found it very easy to use and the NetFlix feature is used almost daily. Great picture quality. I did numerous price and feature comparisons with other BlueRay players before purchasing the P1600 as I found this to be the best value around.

Great Blue Ray

By Niteman from SLC Utah on 07/29/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I did a fair amount of research before I bought this. I found this to be a great choice. I did compare to several other brands and for the price I felt it was a great deal. I got it home and plugged it in and am very happy with it. The picture is outstanding and the controls are sweet. The remote is very nice and I am very happy with this unit. The extra's on it are nice too such as Netflix and Pandora.

Darn nice player

By maglu09 from Spring Hill,Fl on 07/02/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This set replaced a no longer fuctioning DVD player. Very easy to set up & works very well with my new Samsung LCD TV. Read some negative things about the front cover as well as the fan noise. The front cover poses no problems what so ever except perhaps to small fingers from children (they can't reach the controls). The fan noise is non existent to my ears. Would certainly recommend the BD 1600 to anyone looking for a Blue Ray player. Small foot print & easy to use.

Great Performance, Great Price and Netflix's -

By bstowell from Everett, Washington on 06/06/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Samsung has the right combination of features and price to give you the best value for the dollar. Purchased this player, and it has performed up to the Samsung name. Read a lot of complaints about the flip down front, I did not have an issue with it, however, I can see were it could get in the way, probably not the best design. Plugged it in, and set it up, which was easy, and started watching! On top of it they added Netflix, set that up and down loaded my selections and started watching. Overall very good player, and great feature sets for the price, which making the Samsung 1600 excellent value!

Buggy

By mandohack from Undisclosed on 04/27/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This otherwise nice blu-ray player has some serious software problems that I'm hoping will be fixed with firmware updates soon. It's almost as if they focused on the Netflix and Pandora features and forgot to QA the regular old blu-ray playback. The Netflix and Pandora stuff are great. I'm continually amazed at the image quality of the Netflix streaming. Pandora is cool too. The big problem I have is how buggy this thing is. It's got the latest firmware, but continues to have issues. It has locked up during "LOAD" (I had to unplug it to reset) and has definite problems with no sound on both DVD and blu-ray titles. I've got big hopes for this player. I hope they fix the software soon.

BD-P1600

By spz4321 from Boston, MA on 04/11/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I had some trouble getting a regular DVD to play 5.1 Dolby sound with my older non HDMI amplifier, (defaulted to stereo). I had to read the manual and set the correct sound options picks, now it works just fine in 5.1 Dolby. I am extremely pleased with it's performance in both regular DVD and BluRay playback. DVD up-conversion to 1080 has a good picture, better than 480p. Good value for money.

netflix player

By washington from Washington on 03/30/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

On my search for a new Blueray player, the thing that determined my purchase, was the ability to play Netflix stream videos. The Blueray player works fine, to setup the netflix part was very easy. The video is not to bad on allot of the movies, better than watching a channel in 480i. Some of the movies will amaze you in the picture quality. Netflix does have some movies in HD. There are a nice selection of Blueray players out there and they are all good. It came down to what else will it do for me.

Audio Drops Out

By Dallas from Undisclosed on 03/28/2009


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have this connected to a Denon AVR-2309CI and when it plays DVD's the audio drops out. I have also notice that the sound drops in the intros to the blue ray movies. During actual Blueray movie playback it seams to work great. No audio issues. I have checked all the setting and everything is correct. Blue Ray quality is good. Just wish I didn't have to use my old DVD player to play regular DVD's.
