Not what I was looking for

GlitterLove, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: Why am I rating this when I returned it, not because it wasn't great. I wanted something with surround sound speakers which I did ordered and love it.

A Player To Access Video Material That Is Not Chaff, Pablum & Kitsch!

Mike J. Rice "'Mike Rice, Cultural Historian", Amazon
2 October 2013
  • Summary: Actually, I accidentally ran upon one of these at Wally World and earlier, a Phillips that played AVIs. I bought the Phillips without realizing it played *.avi files at first, but then one day I got an avi file, popped it in and VOILA! Later I spot this machine on clearance in Walter World. I buy it because it plays mkvs, avis, mp4s, WMS files,all the international files.

Works great... Appearance was lacking

Bree, Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this as a birthday present for my boyfriend. I was really impressed how the seller kept me updated on the status of my package. However I did not like how it was covered with various stickers that were very annoying and difficult to remove. Also the unit did not come with a remote, which was my fault I did not read that it didn't come with a remote , which was annoying to find another remote to use temporarily while I waited to buy the correct remote.

No eject button on remote!

  • Summary: The player does its duty, but its Internet capability is minimal and the remote has no eject button on it, which is kind of a nuisance.

Good basic BD player with Netflix but disappointing DLNA support

Amazon
14 August 2012
  • Summary: This minimalist blu ray player plays dvd and blu ray content acceptably and has a dedicated Netflix button which is great. I have a Samsung TV and it communicates intelligently with it over the HDMI cable. The Netflix support is great, if that interests you. It "just works" as compared to the PS3 netflix app, which seems to require the user to do a system update every month. My main gripe would be the UI and generally the behaviour of Samsung for DLNA content.

You can NOT add any more APPs to this blueray

Amazon
14 August 2012
  • Summary: Be advised, you get only Netflix, Cinema Now, Vudu & YouTube Apps. There is no way to add apps to this machine. You are stuck with what comes out of the box. You can only connect it to the internet via Ethernet as well. Samsung online chat took about 20 minutes to get someone to answer for support, but were polite, and ensured my question was answered properly.

Netflix browsing is slow

  • Summary: Netflix browsing is pretty slow on this, super slow compared to my PS3. Works well otherwise, just plug your ethernet into the rear.

Don't Lose Your Remote!

R. Hauck, Amazon
3 April 2012
  • Summary: Good little Blu-ray player with no frills and it's cheap. Does the job BUT Somehow tonight we sat down to watch a movie and the remote was gone. ( I think my dog ate it!) This is a BIG problem. The player has no control on it to start the movie so if you lose the remote or your dog eats it you are out of luck! I have a Samsung TV also and I thought for sure I could just pick up the TV remote set it on DVD and we would be good to go. NO luck would not work.

Replacement DVD player

Jeffrey D. Binnig "book reader, equal rights ..., Amazon
2 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought this DVD player to replace 2 other DVD players that had gone bust. Due to the price and Samsung's surge to the top of the electronics market, I picked this one up. Pros: Excellent quality. Running Blue Ray version of Avatar through this player and shown on Samsung HD tv is really quite amazing. The resolution is top notch. Youtube! Cons: Samsung is cheap on remotes. I have one of their tv's and it's remote is equally lacking in ergonomics and function.
