Summary: It worked but was flakey at best. I ended up replacing it with a Panasonic model. This really is the only Samsung device I've owned that I wasn't impressed with. All my other Samsung items have been great so I guess one mediocre one isn't unheard of. It just had issues sometimes loading bluray discs and more frequently loading DVDs. It would start to load the disc and then just hang up requiring it to be turned off and back on.
Summary: I have to reboot the machine to get it to recognize a movie. I use to think it was the CD but I kept trying and once I turned the player off and back on it would read the CD. Very frustrating.

Summary: I love this device as a whole and mainly because the hardware looks and works awesome. I havn't had any problems with the player itself or the remote which automatically works perfectly with my new samsung smart tv! As usual, the software and the user interface could use a bit of refining. The biggest negative I found with this device is the lack of ability to connect to wifi, that's right it must be hard wired with an ethernet cable.
Summary: I got this as a promotion with my samsung un40c7000 tv. The bluray player works fine. The only complaint I have is that even though it says it's divx certified. it doesn't play some divx videos for some reason.
Summary: Overall, a solid choice to play the media of your choice. PROS - Whether it's blu-ray, DVD, CD, USB stick stored media, Smart Apps, or networked connected PC your options are broad and will not leave you asking for more. CONS - no built-in wireless. Need a router or LinkStick to connect your apps wirelessly. Smart apps are slow to load. The glossy flip down cover seems delicate.
Pros: Inexpensive, Realistic color, usb media connection, network media access, smart apps
Cons: no built-in wireless, slow smart apps, flip down tray is delicate
Summary: This is one of the few samsung product that I am bit unhappy about. The features are few, it is not blue tooth enabled, when I try to set up internet connection, it is keep showing only wired option?. sometime it will not play the blue ray but shows up dvd only despite I put the blue ray disc?.
Has great picture quality as long as it will play the disc

Summary: I have had 2 of these components for about a year now and both of them have great picture quality and the internet connection is very fast. However, both of them have problems starting up a disc nearly every time I go to play one (BluRay and DVD) it will get to the point right before it needs to go to the disc menu and then freezes. I will have to turn the player off and on sometimes about 3 or more times before it finally will go thru and get to the menu.
Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Realistic color
Summary: The features on this are wonderfull and the picture quality is excellent but this unit regulary has trouble with DVD's as it will hang on screens that preceed the movie itself. Will have to stop and restart the movie menu several times to get thru all of the splash screens. Once the actual movie starts, it works fine and plays DVD wonderfull to my Samsung 46" LED.
