Movies come to life with Blu-Ray thanks to Full High Definition 1080p Picture Quality, and next generation HD sound. The BD-P1600 combines superb movie playback with great connectivity thanks to BD Live capability, Wireless Connectivity (Wifi Dongle required) and USB host play. Blu-Ray is the perfect way to make the most of your HD TV.

Samsung's BD-P1600 offers full HD 1080p playback of Blu-ray discs, and crisp up conversion of standard DVDs through the HDMI 1.3 connection. For a true, Hollywood-quality experience, the player can internally decode the latest high-resolution digital multi channel audio soundtracks, including Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD.

The BD-P1600 can wirelessly connect to the latest BD Live features when the Samsung 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi dongle (optional accessory) is connected to one of the players' two USB 2.0 ports allowing access to the latest BD Live and Bonus View Blu-ray features out of the box, leaving the 2nd USB 2.0 port free for memory expansion duties when needed.

Full HD Blu-ray Playback
Digital images are made up of pixels. The more pixels the image is made up of, the clearer, more detailed that picture becomes. Blu-Ray players output images at Full HD 1080p generating vividly realistic images with outstanding clarity. In addition to this Blu-ray players are capable of outputting High Definition sound for the ultimate movie experience. Your movies will literally be bought to life with Blu-ray.

256MB Internal Memory
Gives you plenty of memory to record, store and play back your favourite shows.

BD profile 2.0 (BD Live) & Bonus View
Enjoy more movie fun with Blu-ray thanks to BD live (Profile 2.0) and Bonusview. BonusView feature allows you to watch additional features (commentary, interviews, etc) in a second window while the main movie is playing. BD Live takes movie interactivity one step further allowing you to connect to the internet to access even more content (review, interactive games, interviews) related to the movie you are watching, hosted on servers by the Hollywood studios.

2x USB Ports
Transfer content from any USB storage device directly onto the television through two high-speed USB input ports. One port can be used to expand the players memory to take full advantage of the BD Live features.

Wifi Ready (Samsung Wifi Dongle required)
Connect the Samsung wireless dongle to one of the player's USB ports to connect to the internet wirelessly, eliminating the need for messy Ethernet cables. Using the Wifi Dongle allows you to connect the player to your home wireless network for wireless access to BD Live features as well as firmware updates for your player.

HDMI v1.3
HDMI v1.3 gives you faster data transfer for deep blacks and vivid natural colours that only Blu-ray discs can show.

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) eliminates the need for multiple cables. It is a digital connectivity standard capable of transmitting the highest quality uncompressed HD digital video & audio content, all through a single cable.

I was looking to buy a Blu-Ray after the last one i had gave me lots of problems, I was going to buy the Panasonic DMP-BD35 because of What hi-fi review but something draw me to this instead, although what hi-fi only give it 4 stars the shop told me that this was a better player and £40 cheaper as well, so i brought it and i have to say what a player, very fast at playing BD discs and clean clear picture and sound, this has to be the fastest Blu-ray player so far, if you are looking for a player and can't be arsed with wait around times of the Panasonic DMP-BD35 then look no further then this, i have been into home cinema for years now and never made a bad choice so far,
go for it you wont be disappointed

this player does play discs @ 1080p if the tv supports 1080p. very good blurayer player for the budget price. very fast loading times, quicker than more expensive players. can be made multi region for dvd too.
1) Press the POWER button on the remote to turn on the
machine (no disc in the tray).

2) Wait till the player has booted up and the Samsung logo
screen is displayed.

3) Press the OPEN/CLOSE button on the remote twice, to open
then close the disc tray.

4) As soon as you see "No-Disc" displayed in the top left
corner, press the REPEAT button followed by the 5 digit code
for your current region as listed below.

(Mine was 57538 for region 2)

Don't press the REPEAT button for too long, just smoothly
press REPEAT 5 7 5 3 8

5) If you're successful, your current region code will be
displayed in the top left corner of the screen.

6) Press '9' to make your player region free

took me 2 attempts, but works a treat.
please note that this will play any region dvd.... but bluray will only be european discs

 Good Buy and great price

My first Blu Ray player so I can't compare with others. I waited and read reviews and finally opted for this over the Sony 550. I don't know why I waited so long. Picture quality is so much improved and the sound excellent and crystal. I have had an upscaler DVD player but this is by far better at this with no noticeable lead in times and no freezing so far. Well pleased, would have been 5 stars except for the manual buttons which are behind a drop down front and are very difficult to see and find.

 easy setup

please can somebody tell me why some of the more expensive players say that they play the movies in full HD. i thought all blu ray players are full HD. this one says in the spec if you read it that there is the word NO next to 1080p.. what does this all mean?
