Summary: Still works great. We really do not use this player much anymore with the advent of "smart TV". However it does have "smart TV features built in that work just fine for me. I do have a few 3-D movies and watching them is quite an experience.
Summary: Got this Blu-ray player free as part of the Cyber Monday bundle when I bought my 55" LED Samsung TV in Nov 2010. 1 star dropped since it doesn't have built in WiFi. I had to buy a Samsung WiFi dongle (Samsung WIS09ABGN WIRELESS LINKSTICK WIS09ABGN2 USB LAN Adapter FOR SAMSUNG 2009 - 2010 & 2011 BLU-RAY PLAYERS, 2010 & 2011 SAMSUNG TVs) to connect to my Samsung TV. The player works well and haven't had any problems since Nov 2010.
Summary: I bought this 3D Blu Ray Player with my UN55D8000 to go in my Man Cave. I have had no problems with it since I owned it, which is a couple years now. I always make sure the firmware is up to date and it works perfect. I have not owned any other brand products to compare this to, especially 3D but I love it and my kids love it.
Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, Realistic color, Lightweight, easy to use
Summary: Overall I think this is a decent Blu-ray disk player. It was a good price and performs well. The unit itself is not very heavy so it moves easily when trying to push front panel buttons - luckily that is not required often. The unit seems to have read issues when playing a Blu-ray after about an hour... take the disk out, put it back in and it will continue fine. I haven't checked lately, perhaps there is a firmware upgrade that I have not applied.
Summary: I've been impressed with my Samsung line of products, but this blu ray player has had it's issues. It routinely won't connect for updates - error messages. These suddenly clear and it works. Also don't like that you can't have a movie in the player but use it for TV speakers. If a movie is in, you MUST play it. It also takes awhile to load movies and makes a clicking sound periodically. Other than that, it works as it should.
