I'm after a blu-ray player and this looks ideal, the only thing is - can ANY wifi dongle be used, as we have a couple lying around and don't really want to buy another one. Thanks

I seriously doubt it, the description says this >

WiFi LAN ready
The BD-P1600 comes with 2x USB ports. One port can be used to expand the players memory to take full advantage of the BD Live features. This leaves a second port free for the Samsung Wifi Dongle (optional accessory). 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.

Here's Samsung's response>

I'd assume it was where any software updates would install themselves ?

Anyway, I ordered 1 of these from Amazon last Wednesday when it was still £99.97 and was in stock. I checked on Saturday morning to see if it was on it's way and it said ' estimated despatch date - 7th June 2010' and the price was still sitting at £99.97 even though it's on the site at £90.73. It's been 'processing' since I checked early on Saturday so I cant cancel and reorder at the cheaper price. I know Amazon refund the difference on pre-orders but are they likely to give me the £9.24 back even though they haven't even sent my item yet?

Thanks for that link, reading what has been said on there it doesn't look such a good buy if you have to buy their own, no doubt over-priced, wifi dongle if you want full functionality. Still a good price for the player on its own though, and I have no end of ethernet cables hanging around (not literally).

Great price for a good and quick blu-ray player. I have this player and still can't believe Samsung have the cheek to write "wireless ready" on the box. I've tried several cheaper alternative dongles, including Samsung ones, to make the player wireless but without success. Cheapest I've ever seen the specific dongle for this player was for around £60. If you can't update the firmware with a wire then I wouldn't bother with this player.
