To be fair, my P1600 has been almost perfect for 9 months in the area of playing different BD movies. It's the firmware and bad support responsiveness that have me steamed. I had hoped that Samsung had finally figured out how to update their firmware at this late stage in the game.
This is a consumer appliance in my mind and shouldn't require constant tinkering to make it do it's primary role - play Bluray movies. I could forgive Samsung development if Netflix or Pandora didn't work quite right, but it's base function is now crippled for quite a few BD titles.
This player will be relegated to a DVD player when my Oppo arrives. Hopefully, firmware version 2.10 will be released soon and correct these issues.
