Digital imaging is made up of pixels. The more pixels in a picture, the clearer it is. With Blu-ray full HD (and 24 frames-per-second) playback, you get every single pixel out of a film possible. Experience vivid, crystal-clear visuals that are more natural, more realistic and simply stunning.
Get more out of a Blu-ray Disc than what's on it. BD-Live 2.0 lets studios future-proof their Blu-ray titles, so they can add content to BD-Live Ready discs even after they have been shipped. Simply connect your Blu-ray player to the Internet (through the included Ethernet port or using an optional Link Stick USB wireless dongle) to download images, subtitles and more. Text-chat with friends during a movie, or play against others in online trivia games to unlock exclusive video content and earn discounts on other products.
Multi Format Playback
In addition to Blu-ray discs, you can drop in a normal DVD and watch the picture get upconverted to near HD quality. Your CDs will also sound great, and you can play MP3/WMA audio from CD, DVD or USB. Or enjoy looking at your favorite JPG files from photo CDs.

Upgrade firmware easily via Ethernet or USB.
Instantly streaming movies and TV episodes from Netflix is done through a broadband connection and a Netflix Queue-based user interface. Netflix members visit the Netflix Web site to add movies and TV episodes to their individual instant Queues. Those choices will automatically be displayed on members' TVs and available to watch instantly through the Samsung players. Once selected, movies will begin playing in as little as 30 seconds. With the included remote control, Netflix members can browse and make selections right on the TV screen, read synopses and rate movies, and fast-forward or rewind the video stream.
The BD-P1600 can stream music though the popular Pandora music service. Enjoy a fresh way to discover new music and stay up-to-date with your favorite artists.
By adding Samsung's proprietary Link Stick 802.11b/g/n wireless dongle (not included), users can wirelessly connect to the latest Blu-ray features when the dongle is connected to one of the players' two USB 2.0 ports, or via the traditional wired Ethernet connection.
Analog/Digital Audio Out
Know what sounds great when it comes to your Blu-ray Disc player? Having audio output options. For picture-perfect audio there's the HDMI output. If you prefer analog audio, the player comes with a stereo RCA output for two channels of analog audio. An optical output is also included for the happy medium.
Firmware UpgradesWhat's in the Box
Your new Samsung Blu-ray Disc player won't be obsolete the moment you bring it home from the store. It's equipped with an Ethernet connection so you can download the latest firmware upgrade and add new features. If your player needs more local storage to take advantage of these features, simply plug in a memory stick with at least 1GB of memory into the USB port.

I discussed the issue with Samsung Tech Support ('support' being used loosely here) and they informed me that this is a known issue and their engineers are working on a solution. In the meantime, I've seen bulletin board discussions with people having the same problem. Samsung representatives continuously suggest the same, ineffective 'solutions' : hold down the FF button; install the latest firmware update - which, a> is impossible since the player is locked and b> the original cause of the machine not working.
The final solution from Samsung representatives is to send the machine in for repair. During a support chat session with Samsung, I was informed that the price of this would be $160.00. I paid only $80 for it, as there was an Amazon discount of $200 on any player purchased with a qualifying TV.
The idea that Samsung is expecting customers to return the machine for repair and pay for those repairs is ridiculous. It is their own firmware, which they deliver to these machines, that is the cause of these problems.
As I mentioned earlier, the quality of the player - when it was functioning - is great. However, with it in its current state, and Samsung's fleecing of their customers, it has led me to "spread the word" and in no way, shape, or form can I possibly recommend this product - or any other Samsung product - until something is done.
Samsung should be offering a re-call of this product and replacing it at no cost to consumers. Until then, Samsung goes on my "Do Not Buy" list.
UPDATE (12/23/09): Finally got Samsung to resolve issue. See my comment below for details. Changed from 1-star to 3-stars. Can't go any higher than that based on original issues, though.
Bottom Line: The unit is priced to sell and is a great value when you consider the included Netflix streaming video application (requires Netflix subscription). You don't have to worry about firmware updates if you utilize the network port since you can just have the system download firmware updates as required in the future.
I've heard of many people losing their unit (turns to a door stop) when Samsung installs an update with no option of getting it repaired under warranty. I've contacted customer support and spent no less than 15 hours on the phone over a few days (when Bangladesh picks up, ask to be escalated to executive support immediately - they are completely useless as would be expected from someone that may never have seen the product and has to follow a script.) Executive support is not much better, but at least they can answer questions without putting you on hold. Again, support was by far the worst I've ever experinced, and for that, I will NEVER give Samsung another penny of my hard earned cash.
WARNING! Some unethical vendors (possible examples include Regal Camera, and maybe others) have offered this product for a lower price, I purchased a second unit from them for my better half... only to find out that it was a Canadian Unit! No warrantly is valid in the US, and Samsung Canda will not give me the time of day since I am not calling from Canada! Buyer beware, Regal Camera claimed that they had a disclaimer saying that it's an imported unit, well, no doh, aren't all units imported??? The disclaimer should read "sold without a factory warranty", just a warning to save the next trusting person out there the trouble I went through.
This unit does not play Sherlock Holmes (personal experience, 2 netflix bluerays in a row force me through 9 previews (skipping is disabled) and locks up while trying to load the movie, I've tried all suggestions from many helpful folks, but to no avail. I've read similar complaints regarding Avatar.
Bottom line - buy Samsung if you do not mind throwing the product away when it breaks, even if it's under warranty - their mission statement seems to be "if we keep em on the phone long enough, transfer them to enough clueless people, they will get tired of us and hang up after a few hours, and it will only cost us 50 cents an hour in India"
If you happen to be a Samsung executive, and are reading this - please consider restructuring your whole support organization, and replacing the executive leadership in charge of customer support with people that are not hell bent on destroying your company's reputation.
