Summary: Kind of expect a Blu-ray player to, you know, play Blu-ray and DVD disks. This one does. Haven't tried out the network i/f yet - surprised that it didn't automatically include wi-fi - you need to purchase an adapter for that. Anywho, every "smart tv" and player network interface that i've used has been clunky and slow, if functional, so my expectations are low on that front. Set-up was quick and easy. Is good.
Summary: bought this as a gift for my girlfriend and i was kind of disappointed with the lack of wifi capabilities. with that being said, she had a very old dvd player so any blu-ray player is an upgrade.
Summary: After so many attempts to get it working with Netflix I had to call customer support. They had me update the firmware which took about 47 min. Then still nothing. It would freeze every time. Finally one of the support guys had me change the network numbers on the unit. Now it works. The remote has no options for Netflix. You can pause and play but can't back up.
Summary: I bought this player and it only lasted 4 months. It would not connect to Netflix (which was the only reason I purchased it) Called Samsung for three weeks they stated they had a software problem. I ended up giving it away and got the Wii. It was so much easier to use, and user friendly. So this purchase was just a big loss of money and time for me. I wish I had looked at the feedback before purchase.
Summary: Since the salesman noted that we would need a separate wireless adapter, we were not surprised. In fact, we've experienced no problems with this unit. We appreciate the fact that BBC news and other services are among those with which we can easily connect. Netflix movies download quite quickly and we've had no interruptions in the download process. I'm wondering if those who report download problems are using something other than a genuine Samsung wireless adapter.
Summary: The player arrived with the CD drawer cover hanging open. The hinge spring to close it is missing (it is not damaged; it appears it was never installed). The bezel stays open all the time. The Samsung help desk was unhelpful, and the distributor will not pay return shipping. So, we are keeping it. Plays fine so far, just ugly.
Summary: This is the worst blu ray player I have ever purchased. It does not stream from the internet without freezing, literally every 5-10 minutes. If you just want a blu ray to play just DVDs then I guess it would be ok. However, I wouldn't even waste my money for that purpose.
Summary: Samsung blu-ray disc player seems to be just fine. But am having trouble getting the HDMI cable that was suppose to come with the player. After calling Samsung it seems that Samsung does not know what a HDMI cable is. Thay sent be a chip insert instead. Still waiting for the cable after calling them back three times.
