It's fairly unrefined. Decent first try but it has issues.

Summary: I've had this Blu-ray player for just over a year. It has good features but the implementation is a bit lacking. Overall, I have enjoyed using this player that came free with my Samsung UN46C8000. The 3D playback is good and the internet features are useful.
Summary: It seems like the other concepts like G**gle TV may offer a better choice on internet content options as long as they can get the networking stable and consistent. Networking was a large part of why I chose this model.
Pros: Does well on the basic blu-ray player functions. Great looks and user interface.
Cons: The networking is unstable and provides little extra content unless you want to start subscribing (and paying) for services. Streaming movies continually stall on a wireless connection that provides smooth downloading to a laptop in the same room. It's own signal evaluation system said my router ...
Summary: Just got it so have not used a lot so far. Plays 3D movies fine. The "aps", well other than the weather most are just things you have to pay to use, and sometimes pay for the ap itself to boot. My main issue is the allshare connection to PC.

Summary: I have a Samsung 2D TV and a Pioneer A/V Receiver, and there's something about my setup that this Blu Ray player just doesn't want to work with. I like the player's style, LED lighting and buttonless touch-sensative controls and I read on CNET that the picture quality of this player is top-notch...
Summary: This product has great image and sound quality, but at a retail price of $349.00 it should remember where you left off in a movie. BD-Wise is disabled when hooked to me A/V receiver even in pass through mode. It took a long time to load, and sometimes I had to load a disc twice for it to play.
Pros: Great Picture and sound quality
Cons: Does not remember where you left off. BD-Wise does not work with non-Samsung products like A/V receivers. I had problems with loading discs about 20% of the time.
I Love This Player!!! Insanely fast for a Bluray Player.

Summary: I have had this player for about a month and I love this player so this is a review in progress. The player is remarkably slim with a blue lighted top for controls and a 3D logo and disk player area is also translucent and blue lit. I do not find them a distraction.
Be careful with buying this for Netflix HD playback!

Summary: I'm not going to review the Blu-ray player part, as I think it's been very well reviewed by many other people, and I would totally agree the Blu-ray playback is very good. My 2 stars are for Blu-ray playback only! However, I am going to write about the built-in Apps, and more importantly Netflix.
Summary: Afraid Samsung rushed to market with this system... lots of bugs yet to be worked out. I just hope Samsung can do it in the coming months through firmware updates. If you're interested in the internet features of this device, you should know that Hulu access is limited to those with Hulu Plus...
Summary: I received this Samsung BD player this free with a Samsung plasma. This device for some reason doesn't get near the wireless bandwidth as other devices and thus fails to stream Netflix properly.
