Woot‘s got the Samsung BD-P1590 up today for a low $85 shipped. I can’t say it’s the best Blu-ray player, or even very good. In fact, one of the top ZNF posts of all time is our coverage of Samsung’s sister unit, the BD-P1600. Because it’s got problems. Amazon commentary of the 1590 isn’t very flattering either.
However, if you’re willing to accept slower boot times, run of the mill picture quality, and that “Wireless Ready” does not equal wireless… $85 is a pretty good deal. Because, in addition to Blu-ray playback, you’ll have access to Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, and Blockbuster VOD.
I wouldn’t recommend this Samsung for your living room, but it might make a nice addition to the den or kid’s room. Assuming you can hardwire it.
