Summary: Slow, buggy, often locks up or freezes in the middle of an app. Not worth the time or money for what this unit is allegedly supposed to do in the wi-fi sense, even with the $80 LAN. Admittedly a nice clear picture with discs and the internet, but only when it is working properly.
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: 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: 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: 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: 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: 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.
Good Blue Ray-3D Playback. No Netflix. Firmware updates are too difficult.

Summary: Good disk playability (tried both blue ray discs and 3d blue ray discs) and no problems seen on that area. Netflix (which the device has its compatibility logo on the box) never actually appeared as an application on the device.
Summary: After a year and a half, I can't recommend this product. It has frequent problems where the unit simply outputs no audio until rebooted without a disk in the tray. The Internet features take ages to load and the UI is really clunky, typical of Samsung products.
