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. Will look for another player soon.
Summary: This unit had trouble reading blueray disks when I got it out of the box. Since I was mainly using it for streaming I let that problem go, but that problem got worse and worse, until as you might expect, it completely stopped playing blue rays as soon as the warranty was over. Despite spending an hour with Samsung reps to upgrade the software and reboot, it wasnt fixable. What poor quality control.
Works good as 3D BR & American DVDs, but is fixed to North American Region & Zone

Summary: I bought it because I have Samsung 3D TV. I like how it plays BR 3D and American coded DVDs. I was totaly disapointed, because it does not play uncoded DVDs (I did not try uncoded BR yet) and there is no way to change region or zone. I have to use separate DVD player (also Samsung) to play uncoded DVDs.
Summary: Gave it two stars because while it did everything it said it would do from the literature, it didn't do it for all that long. Replaced it later with their top of the line model and it actually works. Didn't even make it 3 years before it just quit playing DVDs...oh, it would play them, but they'd hang up and no matter what, you couldn't get past that mark. The DVD's worked in my computer's Blue Ray, and when I got the new one it played the same DVD's flawlessly.
Summary: There's very little good to say about this player. When it worked it ok, but getting it to work was the hard part. The Good: Setting it up was easy. When you do get it to play, the image quality is good. The Bad: The problem with this player is that it often locked up on boot unless you had a disc in it. You turn it on and wonder if it was going to load. Often it just hung on a black screen and you'd have to restart it. It's very frustrating. Also, it had one fatal flaw.
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. Even if they load and start to play, most times the unit starts thrashing the head trying to locate the next chapter or skips terribly and then just quits. "Cannot read disc'. Wonderful. The unit has the latest firmware update.
Summary: fast shipping, I got the Samsung remote w/ the player; emailed and asked for the BlueRay remote and got it in mail in 3 days without extra charge and got to keeptheTV remote. The player is OK, it is refurbished, and noisy fan, and creaking noise occasionally esp. when TV turned off and Samsung still on. Make noise when open or close the dis tray. The tray cover just broke and did not drop all the way and stopping the tray to eject.
