Summary: Only lasted two years before front panel touch buttons failed to work, had to use the remote. A couple of months later, the DVD player stops playing in the middle of a movie, and now player mysteriously turns itself on and off. Time for a new one.
Summary: Would use my old Xbox 360 but I refuse to pay the $60 a year for a Gold Membership.
Pros: Was cheep (refurbished) and plays most DVDs without issue (see cons). Starts up very fast.
Cons: Netflix is so hit or miss. Some days it runs like it should on a 20mbs connection through a hardwired 1gb router. Most days it is so sslllloooowwwww. Takes forever to just connect and bring up the home screen. Then it takes forever for it to display all the titles. Then it has a 15 second delay w...
Summary: This is by far one of the worst players I've seen. Super slow and super buggy. I got this as a free gift and IMO that it is pretty bad. I am considering buying something else as opposed to keeping this... I'm terribly disappointed by Samsung for shipping something so dysfunctional.
Summary: After a year of using the blu-ray players, I thought I would follow-up with a review. If you are buying a blu-ray for the "smart" content, don't waste your money. I bought several blu-ray players as gifts as well as a Samsung Smart TV. It depends on your manufacturer which apps they will provide.
Summary: The ] is a fine Blu-Ray and DVD player, but needs lots of improvement for the streaming apps and a networking problem. First, occasionally, the box gives you a network error - something like network not available. The only way I've been able to fix it is to unplug the unit and plug it back in.
Summary: This player came as part of a TV package so we took what was given. It has worked OK until the recent purchase of the Cars 2 3D Blu-ray. Numerous times during the movie the picture would skip back two or three scenes and start playing again.
Summary: Is this a decent player, yes. It does not, however, support Amazon Prime Streaming Videos (that I can find), and the arrogance of the Samsung support person I contacted was rather breathtaking. I was told that this player doesn't support Amazon Prime, and it'll never support Amazon Prime...
Summary: I have noticed this player to be the MOST RETURNED Blue Ray Player Samsung makes. I've been to Best Buy and CompUSA. My findings have been from November of 2010 to Sep 2011. Bunch of returns on the shelf every time I go into the stores.
Summary: Good: Quick Boot Plays the content it advertises Looks sleek and has the newest collection of Samsung Apps Bad: Not sure if it's because this is new but the Hulu Plus & Netflix apps stutter uncontrollably.
