slow disc loading times

automatic firmware update isn't such a great idea - poor testing on new firmwares lead to machine freezeups

Samsung service is bad. They will not replace a faulty product.

Does not perform as advertised. Find a different manufacturer.

It plays a DVD for about an hour before the picture scrambles. Restarting does not fix the problem.

The Samsung BD-P1590 is a store-specific version of the BD-B1600 released strictly for Walmart at a more expensive price. It’s a near duplicate BD player, save for its Walmart branding. It plays BDs, CDs, and DVDs at a resolution up to 1080p (DVD upconversion included), but also hosts a plethora of inputs for connecting to a compatible HDTV screen, as well as composite, component, and s-video devices as well. Signature to the BD-P1590 is that it not only includes an Ethernet interface, but it is also ready for wireless connectivity with the purchase of an optional wireless adapter. This allows users to stream Blockbuster, Netflix, and Youtube videos, as well as Pandora music.

Additional Information

Additional features include Anynet++ one-touch control of all Anynet++ compatible devices via the included universal remote; BD-Live 2.0 for accessing interactive video features; and Dolby Digital decoding.
