Samsung BD-P1600 review

 

Samsung's BD-P1600 is quick to load Blu-ray discs, but it can't quite match the performance of top budget rivals

Fine value ; strong spec ; handles motion well with SD or HD ; decent colours ; fast loading times

Lacks detail compared to best ; spend more for more greater dynamics

There are nearly always compromises with budget kit: the BD-P1600 is no different but it remains a compelling option on a budget

Samsung BD-P1600 Blu-ray player

 

This is Blu-ray on a budget, but Samsung's latest is anything but basic. Already spotted for as little as £140 online, the BD-P1600 is the successor to the brand's popular BD-P1500. BD-Live is a bit messy and the Wireless dingle costs more than it...

BD-Live, Wi-Fi possibilities, DivX playback, USB hubs

Wi-Fi dongle is a £50 upgrade, no home networking

BD-Live is a bit messy and the Wireless dingle costs more than it should, but the BD-P1600 gives a good picture performance. Add some decent digital media compatibility and you’ve got a versatile deck that will suit anyone wanting to a Blu-ray player...

Samsung BD-P1600 review

 

With ultra-fast loading times, Samsung's latest budget Blu-ray spinner looks set to impress – can it deliver?

The BD-P1600 produces a decent picture, but its biggest pull is without doubt the rapid loading times

Samsung BD-P1600 review

 

An ambitious deck that can't quite escape its budget roots

Fast loading times ; BD Live ; Good value ; Decent pictures

Odd design ; Tricky BD Live setup process ; Can't stream digital media

Fully-featured Blu-ray deck with good value pictures, but let down by tricky and impractical BD Live setup

Samsung BD-P1600 review

 

Unfortunately, in a few simple areas, the Samsung BD-P1600 put its foot in its mouth.

The Samsung BD-P1600 produces very good images, and by Blu-ray standards it's as fast as lightning. But problems with upscaling DVDs and some unwise design decisions prevent it from being a great player.

As you would expect the BD-P1600 supports full HD Blu-Ray playback and it will also play standard definition DVDs upscaled to whichever resolution you choose. You can connect USB memory sticks to allow for storage of any Blu-Ray Live content made...

Samsung BD-P1600 review

 

The Samsung BD-P1600 delivers very good-looking Blu-ray playback and adds a host of multimedia goodies previously found only in higher-end Samsung models, including BD-Live and Pandora streaming to your TV and home-theatre sound system.

Review of Samsung BD-P1600 blu ray player

 

Good points: Speedy disc loading. Easy to use. Eject button on remote. Drawbacks: Picture quality is average rather than outstanding with some glitches, sound is below par.

Samsung BD-P1600 Blu-ray player

 

Samsung's BD-P1600 delivers everything you need from a Blu-ray disc player

Excellent image quality with both Blu-ray discs and DVDs, high-definition audio decoding, good operational speed

Build quality could be better, flip-down front is annoying

Samsung’s BD-P1600 does everything you could want a Blu-ray player to do. Great picture quality, plenty of audio decoding support and a speedy interface combine to make it an easy choice. Our only concerns (the build quality and the design) are minor.
