Summary: Wish I had never bought this. Frequently when playing Bluray discs, about 3/4 to 4/5 of the way in, the audio turns off. Multiple titles, so I doubt it is the disc. Have to turn the player off, back on, wait for the trailers you can't skip to finish again, and jump to the chapter I was at.
Summary: Bought because I like my Samsung Smart TV and wanted to add its capabilities to my other TV. I did my research but was still surprised. WiFi READY does NOT mean what I thought. That doubled the cost, since wires to upstairs room not practical.
Pros: Works well, good up-conversion of DVDs, standard Samsung smart menu system. Many apps, including Netflix which works reasonably well.
Cons: Wired Ethernet, WIFI requires $50 list adapter No A-m-a-z-0-n instant video app at all. Netflix app sometimes looses sound sync, requiring an exit from Netflix then restart to continue with correct sound.
Summary: The player looks great and works okay. It just takes FOREVER to load a disk... Sometimes it takes twice as along as forever and it gets frustrating. I don't know why it takes so long once the disk is in for it to pull of the menu.
Summary: Upon opening the packaging, it was obvious that the retractable door covering the disk tray was broken. In attempting to get the unit replaced, I find that I have to ship the broken unit back, wait two days after receipt for a refund, and can't simply have the units swapped out. This SUCKS!!
Samsung makes good tv's and terrible blu-ray players

Summary: I love my Samsung tv, but I will never buy another samsung product besides a tv again. I think they trade on their tv reputation to make poor quality products.
Pros: This blu-ray player does everything I wanted it to, and had noticeably better quality than my previous samsung blu-ray player. It does netflix, pandora, hulu, and several other interesting apps. The load times were so much faster than our previous blu-ray player we bought 2 years ago.
Cons: This blu-ray player started "blipping" out after the first week of using it. "Blipping" = screen would flicker white and would try to reaquire signal repeatedly. After 2 weeks was unusable. I checked the tv, swapped out the hdmi cable and swapped out the blu-ray player with another blu-ray player...
