Summary: It works ok before the upgrade then it started to froze when playing bluray disk.can't seem to fix it with the new upgrades. The only good thing is the wifi. The samsung apps also sucks. Full of crappy useless apps and I can't get updated apps like Amazon video player.
Summary: I have had this unit for some time and it refuses to Load or Play most Blu-Ray dvd's. I have tried probably 20-25 brand new out-of-the box Blu-Ray dvd's and maybe 2 out of those would load and play.
Summary: I bought this product for a few reasons: 1. Need to play blu-ray DVDs 2. Need to watch HuluPlus 3. Need netflix. 4. Built in wireless. Now that I have the product, I'm very disappointed. How do I hate this product, let me count the ways: 1.
Pros: I love my 1st ever Blu ray player by samsung. So many options on this player. I can watch netflix movies. I use the Blu ray player more than the satellite box. It also has an option for you fb users.

Summary: I really like Samsung products and bought a 40" LED TV a couple months ago but this blu-ray player has left me disappointed.

Cons: I was very happy with this unit until I tried to play my blu-ray Avatar movie with DTS-HD audio. Audio and video started skipping making it impossible to watch. I got my Sony blu-ray player from my family room and hooked it up in my theatre and the movie played just fine with the HD audio. Only w...
Summary: First off...why I bought this one: I went round and round for a few weeks between this one, the 6900, and the Sony S570. They all got good marks in Consumer Reports, and though the Samsungs didn't rate as well on Amazon, I'm guessing it's b/c the Sony model has been out longer (judging by the number...
Summary: One year ago I purchased a new Samsung Series 6 LED Flatscreen TV, unaware that the next generations would include integral internet streaming capability. As a big Youtube and Netflix watcher who appreciates "couch comfort", I felt like I had missed out until I realized I could "patch" the situation...
Summary: I am not an impulse buyer. I take the time to research the item that I want and then I make the purchase. I spent months researching blu-ray dvd players. I looked at different sites that rated blu-ray players and of course read what customers had to say regarding the various models that they had...
