LIGHTING FAST LOAD TIME, BREATH TAKING PICTURE WITH DVD AND BLU RAY MOVIES.
NONE, SO FAR I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS OR ISSUES
I HAVE OWNED 4 SO FAR, INCLUDING PS3. THIS IS THE BEST BLU RAY PLAYER. SAMSUNG GOT THIS RIGHT! I DO NOT HAVE 3D TV YET BUT 2D IS OUT OF THIS WORLD. I LOVE THIS UNIT! IWAS NOT PLEASED WITH SAMSUNGS BD-4600, HAD PROBLEMS HAD TO SEND IT IN FOR REPAIRS. I BOUGHT THIS UNIT WHILE I WAS WAITING FOR 4600 TO GET REPAIRED.
First one did not work, have to buy not HDMI 1.4 cable
Bought this at Amazon. Setup and work for one and a half movies then stopped working. Contacted Samsung; told me to send it in to them. Decided to return it for new on. Second works perfectly...so far. Did some research online and found that could could have been from overheating, buy I am not sure.
The most beautiful movie player ever invented. I think it boots up faster than my PS3! Lots of great apps, DLNA, wi-fi, built in 1GB hard drive
No picture controls...AT ALL! Extremely unfortunate DNR and black crush.
3 years after Samsung caught hell by enabling a non-defeatable DNR in their first ever BD player, the BD-P1000...they decide to do it again! Absolutely inexplicable! As a result, faces are waxy, everything feels kinda "plastic" and unreal. And of course fine detail is scrubbed away and grain is reduced to a warbling, squished mass. Like the way the initial Gangs of New York Blu-ray looked? Now your whole collection can look that way! Samsung to the rescue!
It's kind of astounding that the few reviews I've read refer to the excellent PQ of this machine, but then those reviews are essentially reprints of of the PR release. It's also clear they are only testing this machine with the Monsters vs. Aliens disc which, being CGI, doesn't show these faults.
I noticed this issue when watching Surrogates. The blacks were steep and pitch. I thought maybe they just screwed up the transfer by increasing the contrast. I then popped it into my PS3 and VIOLA, fine grain and shadow detail! I repeated this to the same results with The Last Starfighter. Before anyone asks, they are both hooked up to my Onkyo SR606 so they share the same HDMI input.
Aside from this deal-breaker problem for me, I have been very pleased with every aspect of the machine. The blue lighting has to be seen in a dark room to really appreciate. That along with the piano black finish and lit touch buttons (which power on in a sequence) is a real feat of artistic design.
The apps are plentiful and nifty. I especially liked the mini puzzle game Dracula's Coffin. Facebook basically works just to see if something recent has cropped up on your home page. Also you get a free HDX rental from VUDU which is cool.
The remote is well designed with lots of "specialty" buttons. It all felt pretty intuitive. There are a couple of glow in the dark buttons, but no light.
Set up is a cinch. You pretty much just have to plug it in. It finds your network and updates automatically.
If you have a smaller screen and/or are sitting far enough away from it, the DNR and black crush might not be a big deal for you. Heck, maybe you prefer it that way. For those people I say go for it. I personally just picked up the Panasonic player and I'm sure it will be a much better experience.
This is the only 3d blu ray player i have had. it works flawless. the loading times are fast . The picture in 2d is great and with a 1.4 cable you get a better picture . I noticed some ghosting even with a 1.4 cable but less . I think that has to do with my tv because it is a samsung c750 lcd with 240hz auto motion. i hear the plasmas do not have the cross talk. all and all the picture is pristine and the sound is clear. I like the bd wise in which gives you the best picture for your Samsung l c d. I am giving this a 5 for perfect .
Great picture in 3d or 2d,easy set up,wireless,great looking player and cheap compared to other 3d players.
Just as Fettastic stated above with DNR
Only just bought the Samsung player and it was a good buy. I suppose there are other better models out there,Sony,Denon and Panasonic but this was within my budget.
The best selling point to me was a surprise that it plays my blu-ray movies from America (it is a Australian coded player) although it did not play the dvd's I have from America. I do not know if anyone in Australia has had this nice surprise,but to me who buy's all blu-ray from the U.S.A, IT IS A GREAT BUY here in Australia.
Flawless Images, great looking small unit with many user friendly video adjustments for perfect setup.
Busy welcome screen full of icons and no way to get a clean welcome screen.
This is a beautiful to look at unit that out performs my 3 year "old" Samsung 2550 in every way. Fast BD load up is great. Blu-rays look stunning. Images are clean, bright, stable, and crisp. There are lots of adjustments available in the menu to tweak video preferences to suit your monitor and environment.
Audio is great too. I set it for "listening at low volume" and I can hear movie dialogue more clearly than from my older blu-ray player without any weird compression effects or any loss of punch or fullness to music or sound effects. I have not changed any settings or connections to my amp so I have to give this player full credit for excellent audio decoding.
I have made good use of the digital zoom too. This unit offers an easy to use two step zoom with no distortion or visible loss of image resolution. Zoomed into Disney’s Sleeping Beauty Blu-ray (which is “very” wide screen) and watched the entire movie with my mouth hanging open. Black bars at the top and bottom of the screen were reduced to a minimum, and I could not detect any loss of image quality while zoomed in! Fantastic feature that I really thought would be not too useful because all other “fake zoom in” features I have tried before caused some kind of artifact or distortion.
I do not have a 3D television screen but I am very happy with this unit’s 2D performance.
