Cons

Controls located on top of player. (can not stack anything on top of this player)

4 agree

WiFi is not internal, comes with a dongle

2 agree

Implementation of PC Streaming crude. Uses file shares only, not a proper media server. Does not remember PC streaming configuration, user ID's or Passwords. (need to reconfigure every time!)

2 agree

DivX playback is limited to SD (480p)

2 agree

Will not playback AVCHD files from USB or Network share, only AVCHD files on properly BDMV mastered DVD or BluRay disks will playback on this machine. (why? the codec is there, it just won't let you!) :-(

2 agree

Audio streem from netflix stops very irritating!

1 agrees

expensive

The Samsung BD-P3600 is a high-end Blu-ray Disc player announced at CES 2009. The BD-P3600 is reasonably similar to Fall 2008’s Samsung BD-P2550, featuring Profile 2.0/BD Live/Bonus View compatibility, Netflix movie and Pandora music internet streaming, plus 1GB of onboard memory, required for online features. The BD-P3600 differentiates itself from 2008’s model by including a USB 802.11n Wi-Fi dongle, which is intended to compliment the integrated Ethernet port. This Blu-ray Disc player supports the highest resolution audio formats out of the box, including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. For users with older AV receivers, this Samsung player can output analog 7.1 channel audio signals as well. Other notable features include improved disc loading times, a 1-second eject feature and touch sensitive controls on the unit itself. Samsung’s BD-P3600 is expected to be released sometime in the first half of 2009.

when you turn the player power on and have a disc in drive...it will automatically try to load the disc no matter what you do. this is bad, cause what if you want to watch netflix? 2nd tier engineering says that is a design flaw and will never be modifed.
