Samsung BD-P4600 review

 

World's slimmest Blu ray player is a joy to use

Original styling ; Slim proportions ; Fast disc loading ; Good multimedia management

Average DVD scaling ; Limited connectivity ; No internet features (unlike its competition)

A good option for those who want to have something more than just a Blu-ray player

Samsung BD-P4600 review

 

Samsung has made the first genuinely stylish Blu-ray player. Step inside to find out if its performance is as good as its looks…

A stylish and perfectly respectable Blu-ray player tarnished by connectivity issues

Samsung BD-P4600 review

 

Samsung's new entry-level Blu-ray player has the style and spec to impress, but connectivity issues let the side down

Unique looks ; simple to set up ; vibrant Blu-ray and DVD images

Not the last word in motion tracking ; mediocre sound ; choosy about handshaking with other devices via HDMI

A perfectly reasonable product comprehensively spoiled by connectivity issues

Samsung BD-P4600 Blu-ray Player

 

Danny finds out why Samsung's BD-P4600 Blu-ray player isn't your average deck.

With the BD-P4600, Samsung has created the most distinctive-looking Blu-ray player to date, with a gorgeous wall-mountable design that will please those who like their players to look as good as the pictures they provide.

European HT Design 2009-2010 -> Samsung BD-P4600

 

Billed by Samsung as 'the world's slimmest', the 42mm-high BD-P4600 is also the world's first wall-mountable Blu-ray player. Its black glossy finish blends into platinum-grey to complement Samsung's Crystal TV range, and the curvy chassis looks great...

Samsung BD-P4600 Blu-Ray Player

 

Despite its slim build, the BD-P4600 is no slouch when it comes to performance. It has Wi-Fi connectivity via an optional USB dongle accessory, which allows you to connect the player to your home wireless network and then access BD-Live bonus content...

Samsung BD-P4600 Blu-ray player

 

The primary claim to fame for the BD-P4600 is that it's the first wall-mountable Blu-ray player. But that's far from its only achievement. For a start, its glossy black exterior, thin profile and lozenge-like form factor make for a gobsmacking...

Looks great, built-in BD Live memory, plays DivX HD, USB ports support wi-fi dongles

No multi-channel analog audio or component video, and image quality lags behind the very best

Samsung BD-P4600

 

Unusually, the BD-P4600 has two USB ports - one you can use to add memory for downloading BD-Live content (though it already has 1GB on board), the other you can use for a Wi-Fi dongle to give yourself wireless access to the internet. That aside, it's...

Distinctive look, wireless internet capability, excellent picture

Distinctive look with side-loading discs won't suit everyone

Samsung BD-P460

 

If you prefer your Blu-ray movies served up in style, then your interest should be piqued by the Samsung BD-P4600 – one of the most fetching Hi-Def players around… and the world's slimmest, fastest, wall-mountable Blu-ray player to boot.

Brilliantly original design. Wireless option. Incredibly fast loading

Poor DVD upscaling

The Samsung BD-P4600 is the slimmest Blu-ray player around,with a super-fast start-up time and a higly original design. Awesome.
