Pain in the ...

Jessica E. Sticht, Amazon
19 May 2013
  • Summary: This Blu-Ray is not user friendly. It switches over your input on the TV the minute you turn it on or put a disk in. It is not easy to put in your internet information. If you try to play a regular DVD in it, which it says it is capable of doing, it will cut in and out during the movie and make it impossible to watch. It does state that this could happen in the manual which I read after the fact.

I had to return it.

Joe in Auburn "jwilcox38", Amazon
24 January 2012
  • Summary: I bought this unit because I had a Samsung TV and didn't want a 3D player. I should have believed the earlier bad reviews. This player played just one DVD. It is very slow to start with long blank black screens. Is it still working? It also shows error messages that make no sense, "added memory needed." The last straw was when I tried to replay the first DVD and got a message that I "needed to update the software to play this DVD.

first bad product I've gotten from Samsung

David Wilson, Amazon
15 January 2012
  • Summary: I've had a number of Samsung products, and not been disappointed. Until now. The first blu-ray disc I tried worked, although the startup time was extremely slow. The second disc I tried was beyond slow, and when I finally (painfully) got past the previews, the movie wouldn't play. I tried to update the firmware, but that wouldn't work at all. I made sure the .ruf file was at the root of my flash drive, and I made sure the flashdrive was FAT-32, not NTSF.

Major Connectivity Issues

Travis R., Newegg
16 December 2011
  • Summary: I wanted this mostly for netflix streaming but it causes me so much anger and frustration that to me it isn't worth it. I'm actually going to give it to my dad for Christmas since he only watches DVD's and Blu-Rays, and get myself a competing product.
  • Pros: It CAN connect to the internet and plays Blu-Rays/DVD's well. Actually loads them pretty quickly and the up-conversion is pretty good.
  • Cons: Disconnects from the internet all the time. Will work fine for a week but then suddenly won't for a week then will resolve itself. I have it connected via ethernet cable. Still so many issues. Support unable to help. Check it out online, many people have this problem.

Player stürzt ab

Ohrenmax, Amazon
30 April 2012
  • Summary: Das Gerät habe ich nunmehr seit ca. zwei Wochen. Anfangs hat es gut funktioniert. Es ist einfach zu bedienen, und die Nebengeräusche beim Start sind aus meiner Sicht nicht relevant, weil beim laufenden Betrieb praktisch nichts zu hören ist, und allein darauf kommt es mE an. Für den Preis erhält man eine adäquate Qualität - so dass jeweilige Gerät ansonsten denn in Ordnung ist. Und genau da liegt bei dem von mir erworbenen Gerät der Hase im Pfeffer: Nach ca.

Schrott

Jens Minack "jens", Amazon
7 January 2012
  • Summary: Die Bedienung ist sehr umständlich. Die direkte Eingabe über die Zifferntasten der Fernbedienung ist nicht möglich. Das Gerät spielt keine Video-CD's. Selbstgemachte DVD's werden nicht richtig abgespielt, es kommt immer wieder zu Bild- und Tonaussetzern. Die DVD wurde mit dem damals sündhaft teuren DMR-HS2 von Panasonic erstellt. Ich weiß nicht, wozu ich auf einem Blue-Ray-Player You Tube benötige, das Gerät aber nicht in der Lage ist, CD-Text an zu zeigen?
