Was great while it lasted...

Jim Shepherd, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: I've had my unit for 1 year and 3 months, never had any problem with it at all until tonight when I put in a disk and heard a loud buzzing sound. The disk eventually read, displaying a picture with alternating lines of digital garbage; so the read head assembly has failed after a very short service...

After 22 months, unit does not function properly. Samsung claims to have no knowledge of the issue. Repair fees. Yay!

  • Summary: I purchased this unit from a big box store in February 2012 after doing, what I thought was, extensive research. I read many reviews & went with this unit. The good news: for a while (22 months) everything worked well, REALLY well! Streaming was great, DVD's great, Pandora great...

This put me off Samsung products permanently

P. Prindeville, Amazon
8 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this unit a year ago, and it's been trouble out-of-the-box. With brand new Bluray disks, it has playback problems with slowing down, skipping ahead, etc. The same disks read fine in all of my other Bluray players.

Do not buy this player

Daniel, Amazon
1 August 2013
  • Summary: While very sleek and attractive, this product is full of bugs. It freezes about 10% of the time with discs and 50% of the time with Netflix. Samsung has never made a Bluray player that works well with Netflix streaming and even admits it. It is now July 2013 and the whole unit just crashed.

Works well as long as Netflix is not utilized. Plenty of better brands that outperform Samsung.

Ali Jaffary, Amazon
28 March 2013
  • Summary: While Samsung products are practically everywhere you look in your household, beware of the device that simply has not made much progress since its inception. The good is this player works superbly with blu-ray discs, app navigation, and consolidating your remotes into one (given you have a Samsung...

Unreliable

Tommy L. Carter, Amazon
28 January 2013
  • Summary: I am writing this review to let people know that it seems as though Samsung is making their machines to fail just past warranty. Just over a year and this machine has failed. This in itself wasn't so bad except that it follows the failure of a 6900 Samsung. Also just over a year old.

Avoid This Product

Jim "Jabbertx", Amazon
3 January 2013
  • Summary: I've owned this blu-ray player for about a year. I've never been able to play an entire blu-ray disc without the player hanging up to the point that I had to eject the disc and restart the machine.

Avoid at all costs!

R. Russell, Amazon
2 December 2012
  • Summary: I consider myself a fairly savvy electronics consumer, so when I saw it on sale, I picked this Blu-Ray player up to replace my older Sony model. Boy do I look like a buffoon now. This is easily the worst piece of electronic equipment I have ever bought, from any electronics company, ever.

Terrible value

Keith F., Newegg
25 October 2012
  • Summary: Samsung will charge $160 to repair a $250 player -- which is absurd.
  • Pros: Played all DVDs at first, Blu-Ray, 3D, 2D. Very clear picture
  • Cons: Played all DVDs at first, Blu-Ray, 3D, 2D. Over time it degraded and would freeze in the middle of regular DVD movies. Now, it refuses to play any DVD, claiming they are unreadable or scratched. These same DVDs play in another DVD player without any trouble. I will never buy another Samsung DVD p...

Update turns it into a brick

Max Simmons, Amazon
13 October 2012
  • Summary: If you update the player it will turn it into a brick. It goes into "load" mode and will not accept a disc or do anything else. Every other feature of the player (settings, "Smart" hub, you name it) also dies. All that remains is the sound of money being sucked out of your wallet.
