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.

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 have a new 55" Samsung 8500 series LED LCD HDTV, and a ten year old top of the line (then) Yamaha receiver. For the best sound, use the settings that the manual suggests for what they call legacy amplifiers. That would be Bitstream re-encode. I have a 6.1 surround system. It sounded great set that way. Also you may want to turn on PCM downsampling. My amp will not do the 96Khz signals in anything other than stereo, so by turning PCM down on, and keeping the sampling at 48Khz I got great surround sound from blueray disks. Much better than normal DVD sound.
Yes you do have to buy a wireless dongle if you want to do wireless. 80 bucks. I like wireless so that is the way I went. Blockbuster, and Netflix streaming is the future, and works fairly good now. The drawbacks are only stereo audio, and 720p or 1080i video, not near as good as a Blueray disk. Some, very few titles, come in 5.1 surround, still not close to the new sound formats on Blueray. I think the future is in streaming video over the Internet to your TV. We will probably see improvements to the sound and picture in the streaming format soon.
All in all very happy with this purchase.
I had absolutely no problems with the upgrade.
The only problem I have had so far with this device was in the configuration of the wireless connection. When I tried to use a non-broadcast SSID, no matter what I tried (no spaces in the SSID name, all upper case, etc) I could not get the Samsung to connect. However, when I made the SSID broadcast it worked just perfect with WPA2. The biggest problem is typing in a 20 character password using the arrow keys on the remote. But hopefully you only have to do that once and so it is not a huge issue.
Maybe someday Samsung will fix the non-broadcase SSID issue in a firmware upgrade (my iTouch works fine with the non-broadcast SSID so I know it is not my router configuration). But this is not a huge issue either.
Netflix watching is great, except that it doesn't remember the last movie that you were streaming (it always goes back to the first movie in your instant queue when you stop the player).
Pandora works great and configuration of both Netflix and Pandora are very straightforward.
Overall, there are some minor firmware issues they still need to work on, but I assume that most of the issues will be worked out before this model is discontinued (I hope).
