Pros: 1) Once connected, this player is outstanding! 2) Excellent blu-ray video and audio. 3) Pandora, Netflix all setup within minutes and work flawlessly. 4) I am amazed at the boot time for a disc (<10 sec) and streaming Netflix (<30 sec and you are watching a movie). 5) The streaming video and audi...
Cons: Wifi connection issues are well known with this unit (Google it). After much research and many iterations, this worked for me. 1) Disable your router encryption (no worries only temporary). 2) Change your network password to all numeric and < 10 characters. 3) Reset the blu-ray player by pressing...
Summary: I do like that the remote that comes with the player controls both my TV and Blu Ray- I can manually change sources, adjust volume and pick apps.
Pros: Works as advertized. When connected to my 2 year old Samsung LED TV, the TV automatically switches to the correct HDMI input when the player is turned on - a nice feature when you connect Samsung components. Sadly I had no idea they worked this well together ahead of time or I would not have cons...
Cons: It has ONLY HDMI and optical outputs so my 12 year old receiver with only 1 optical input is challenged since I have several components that use optical. I bought an optical switch and now can use all of these components with my receiver. Previously I connected my DVD player to my receiver with a...
Summary: Over all it is a nice piece of equipment and I would recommend it. I do think the manual needs to be updated though.
Pros: Nice picture and fast loading. Only watched on Blue Ray disc but the picture is great and non Blue Ray disc also has a nice picture (better than my old player). Internet works very good as well when I was able to set it up.
Cons: Could not find andy wireless network until I updated the firmware. There is no troubleshooting options in the manual. This issue was fixed by reading other posts and without them I would probably have problems getting the unit to work. The manual assumes there will be no issues with the initial s...
Good Overall, except for automatic resolution feature

Pros: Overall, this is a great player and I've been quite happy with it. I bought this after returning an LG that was flakey.
Cons: The automatic resolution switching doesn't work. Sometimes when putting in a DVD or BluRay the resolution is detected correctly and other times the picture goes whacky and flickers on and off. Setting the output resolution to a fixed 1080p seemed to fix this. This might be an incompatibility with...
Summary: What very few people are discussing and what Samsung doesn't tell anyone is this player WILL NOT connect to a WiFi network with WEP security. No matter how many tricks you try, no matter what you think you know, it absolutely will not connect to a WiFi network with WEP security.
Pros: Beautiful picture quality. Upconversion of standard DVDs is great. This is my first Blu-ray player, and so far I am very happy. Love the built-in WiFi -- connecting was a breeze. Netflix streaming is near flawless (just need to bump up my connection speed). Once connected to my wireless network, ...
Cons: The only problem I've seen so far is somewhat slow load times on Blu-ray discs... but that seems to be a common gripe on most Blu-ray players.
Nice Blu-ray Player BUT Challenges of Wireless Internet Connection

Summary: I bought this as an up grade to Blu-ray AND Internet connection planning to use Blockbuster as a source of movies (it also has Netflix and others). Samsung gets high rating from CNET and Consumer Reports. I couldn't get the Samsung to connect to my Linksys RG54T router.
Summary: As my first Blue-ray player I liked it, but it didn't fit what I was looking for. I was looking forward to the applications and potential of them as well. Pros: For the most part, the player is great with some minor details that I didn't like.
