Review: Samsung BD-P4600

 

[Editor's note: we tested a new version of this player with an updated software. The Netflix streaming worked perfectly. Because of this we upped the...

High-end, spacey design. Loaded with features, including ability to mount it on the wall. Loads Blu-ray discs exceptionally fast. High-quality playback

Complicated initial setup. Cramped underside port-connection compartment. Overpriced for what it delivers

Samsung BD-P4600 review

 

Samsung's new entry-level Blu-ray player has the style and spec to impress, but connectivity issues let the side down

Unique looks ; simple to set up ; vibrant Blu-ray and DVD images

Not the last word in motion tracking ; mediocre sound ; choosy about handshaking with other devices via HDMI

A perfectly reasonable product comprehensively spoiled by connectivity issues

Samsung BD-P4600 - Blu-ray disc player review

 

Samsung likes to say its "Touch of Color" design scheme elevates products to become a "work of art," but really it comes down to three main principles: rounded corners, translucent red highlights, and a glossy black finish. The Samsung BD-P4600 is the...

Unique design; can be wall-mounted; excellent image quality on Blu-ray movies; Wi-Fi USB dongle included; Netflix and Pandora streaming; superfast operational speed and disc loading; Profile 2.0 compatible; onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD...

Costs more than a PS3; unusual design won't fit all decors; compartment for connectivity is cramped; PC streaming setup is difficult.

Samsung's BD-P4600 Blu-ray player is packed with features and its unique design makes it wall-mountable, but most buyers will be better off with the step-down BD-P3600.

Samsung BD-P4600 review

 

World's slimmest Blu ray player is a joy to use

Original styling ; Slim proportions ; Fast disc loading ; Good multimedia management

Average DVD scaling ; Limited connectivity ; No internet features (unlike its competition)

A good option for those who want to have something more than just a Blu-ray player

Samsung BD-P4600

 

If you are looking for a very compact and versatile Blu-Ray player that does not take ages to load discs, then consider the Samsung BD-P4600. It is very flexible as far as setting up your network connection (WiFi or Ethernet); however, the initial link...

European HT Design 2009-2010 -> Samsung BD-P4600

 

Billed by Samsung as 'the world's slimmest', the 42mm-high BD-P4600 is also the world's first wall-mountable Blu-ray player. Its black glossy finish blends into platinum-grey to complement Samsung's Crystal TV range, and the curvy chassis looks great...

Samsung BD-P4600 Blu-Ray Player

 

Despite its slim build, the BD-P4600 is no slouch when it comes to performance. It has Wi-Fi connectivity via an optional USB dongle accessory, which allows you to connect the player to your home wireless network and then access BD-Live bonus content...

Samsung BD-P4600 Blu-ray Player

 

Back in 2006, Samsung was the first manufacturer to release a Blu-ray player to the masses. It contributed to the format's less than stellar launch reportedly due to an incorrect default setting in the video processing chip set used in the player.
