Disappointed.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 April 2014
  • Summary: This stopped working just after a year and we have ran updates and had to link it directly to our internet to get it to play any blu ray. Dvds would only work otherwise. Ran updates again and got it working with out the internet, just using our wifi. And about a month ago it stopped completely. Wish it was as good as samsung's other products.

DO NOT BUY IT. I REPEAT DO NOT BUY IT

Juan Camilo Mejia Gomez, Amazon

  • Summary: Player does not have Netflix App and you can not download it (even thought in the box and the remote says it has it) Samsung Applications are bad and it take forever to open. If you are a smart person you will buy Sony. I just did and is way better.

Waaaaay too complicated and Unreliable

Mannillo, Amazon
13 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought this 3-D BD player because I already have a high end Samsung 3-D Plasma tv and was hoping to take advantage of the HDMI pairing between the two. I have a Sony LCD that works wonderfully with my PS3. But as for the Samsung products, when they work, its beautiful, so nice to use the tv remote to control the blu-ray player, and all the optimal picture settings and 3-D settings work automatically because of the Samsung connection.

Smart Hub not so smart - Installing... (forever)

Charles J Lazarr, Amazon
20 September 2012
  • Summary: Great features, Anynet+ (file sharing) works nicely for sharing music and videos etc.. Blu-Ray playback works nicely. The main issue is with the Internet applications - Smart Hub. We enjoyed Netflix and Pandora for quite some time until about 3 or 4 months ago when it wanted to do an update every time we entered Smart Hub. We see the "Installing..." message and nothing else. The install never completes.

it loads slow and it goes blank when it's paused for too long.

Mack Johnson, Amazon

  • Summary: it has very slow loading and if the video is paused for too long the picture goes blank and you have to restart the movie all over again.the same goes for uploaded pictures.there is no option to change it in the menu either.i just put in a new 3d blu-ray movie and it plays for about two minutes and then rather than play through it just repeats the same part over and over.

It gets the job done...

Sammy The Blade "SNM", Amazon
18 July 2012
  • Summary: I have had a few Samsung blu-ray players and honestly...I do not like them at all. This one is just okay, and I am done buying Samsung Blu-rays. I have had three now and all of them seem to work in slow motion. A lot of lag with Samsung, which I am surprised because they usually make great products. Aside from the lag I deal with it because I already had one of those wifi adapters from my old Samsung and didn't want it to go to waste. Overall if I had to decide again..

Nice try, Samsung!

Cliff, Amazon
18 July 2012
  • Summary: This player does all the same garbage I'm sure the reader is looking for: freezing, turning on and off, and not responding to the controller. Nothing works to fix it, everything started at the same time, and got worse very fast.

  • Summary: This device worked for the first two days and now will not connect to the internet for Netflix etc. via ethernet. I have found the same complaint all over the web, and so far no solutions. Samsung is no help.

So Disappointing

kavlito, Amazon
17 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought this not only to upgrade to Bluray, but to replace my networked Panasonic DVD player for Netflix to upgrade to additional functionality. I have previously installed Samsung TV's with SMART capability, and liked what I saw. Straight to the point. This unit is slow. From bootup, to accessing Bluray and applications, it is tooooo slow. The remote: the keys are not that responsive, and if I'm not pointing it directly at the unit I get nothing.
