They won't post nwew firmware... In fact, they will send out firmware to break playback... My BD-P2500 less than a year old no longer plays blu-ray discs... due to Samsung's poor warranty on labor (only 4 months) they want $90 to unbrick it from one of their automatic downloaded firmware updates... Take my advice and buy another brand... ANY other brand
I am a owner of a Bd-p2500 and a Samsung enthusiast and have been reading how many of the owner of Bd-p2500 want what they can't have. What I would like to see is that Samsung continue to push out firmware updates for their products that are not that old. I can't afford to buy the latest model every year just so my model works. Their is things like Netfix play performance and BD playback capability that need to be updated. If Samsung is going to keep me as a customer than they need to be pushing their support of their product to a higher level. If not, I will be looking at far cheaper products that give me their commitment to keep their firmware and support update instead of have to buy a new model every year just to get something to play or a little better streaming experience.
