Summary: While I've been using this for a year now, this blue ray player is great as a stream box that works great at streaming DNLA servers and from Netflix (although the interface could desperately use an update). Best of all is using it with Plex.
Summary: When the media streaming devices came out, I really just had to have one. I tried the logitech revue and google tv. I really liked the revue, but it didn't let me stream hulu which I didn't like. It also didn't let me play DVD's or Blu-Rays, so I decided to go with the Samsung product.
Summary: Beware the claim that this bluray 3d player will upconvert 2d to 3d - there is none. This can be problematic to those who would buy the wrong TV thinking their player will do what their TV doesn't.
Great Blu-Ray player. Internet apps not too reliable.

Summary: I purchased this blu ray player primarily because: 1) wireless built in 2) Hulu Plus 3) price (around $100) As a dvd/blu ray player, it's flawless. Fantastic picture quality, easy to use, works great. If that's all you really need, read no further.
Summary: This was easy to set up, but I was very surprised that it does not have the capability to stream Amazon videos. Since I am a Prime Amazon customer, I am thinking of returning this blu ray player since my other LG blu ray player does have an Amazon app to stream movies and TV shows.
Summary: Most con and pro issues have been discussed here by other reviewers so I will just add my "two cents". Applications, e.g. Netflix, Pandora, etc. are super slow to load compare to today's standard; almost like comparing an i486DX computer to a Pentium III computer.
Summary: Unable to view any artwork when logged into Netflix. Samsung finally admits that there is a problem with the app (probably the most commonly used and important internet app!!). Awaiting a 'patch' which Samsung states is 'forthcoming' but will not provide me with any other information.
