Samsung BD-P4600 Reviewed

Samsung latest and greatest blu-ray player is their top of the range Samsung BD-P4600. It impresses with it’s touch of color design styling and it’s unique ability to be wall mounted along side your HDTV.

This is the first blu-ray player we have seen that can be wall mounted. If wall mounting the very slim 1.5-inch player is not for you, Samsung have also included a special stand that angles the BD-P4600 at a 25 degree angle to show it off.

Unlike some other blu-ray players, the Samsung BD-P4600 has built in 802.11b/g/n WiFi support without the need to buy a separate dongle, and advanced streaming features. Netflix and Panaora streaming, along with BD-Live content and firmware updates can be delivered to the Samsung BD-P4600 wirelessly.

As you would expect from a top of the range player, it supports blu-ray profile 2.0 / blu-ray live, quick loading times, DivX playback, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD HR/MA decoding and audio bitstream output. Cnet gave the Samsung BD-P4600 a four out of five rating and said, the Samsung BD-P4600 is packed with features and its unique design makes it wall-mountable, but most buyers will be better off with the step-down, cheaper Samsung BD-P3600.
