Summary: Bought this BR to work with my Samsung TV and the Smart features work well enough. The issue though is that this device would often freeze up and stop while playing a dvd. Secondly, when it would play (either streaming or from disc) the video would often cut out entirely. I've checked my cables and tested with a different dvd and it is definitely a problem with this Blue Ray. Now I'm off to see if I can find a better one that will work seamlessly with my Samsung TV.
Just bought this , had it less than a week and back it goes!

Summary: I ordered this because of the good reviews unfortunately I didn't see the bad reviews, it wont recognize blu rays except the first few days I had it, I just subscribed to block buster for movie rentals too! i am giving it another chance and exchanging it but one more glitch and its to another brand, Im very disappointed because i got it specifically for the fact that in addition to blurays it had the apps like netflix and pandora, which are about the onlythings working...
Summary: I purchased this product in June, 2011. Two months after purchase, it was back in the box for repair by a third-party Samsung affiliate. (I had to pay for shipping to their facility.) While the repair resolved the major problems I was having, many annoying glitches remain to this day. Here they are: 1. There are far too many screen freezes during streaming videos, esp. those from Netflix. Very few freezes occur during my Blockbuster and VuDu streams.
Summary: I purchased this BD player because it has a great feature set for the price with a solid brand like Samsung. When I received it I set it up quite easily and everything seemed fine. Now however, the device does not boot up correctly. When I power on, the little LED screen says "LOAD" and stays like that until I power it down. If I restart it a few times it eventually works correctly.
Summary: After reading up on the unit and checking reviews I thought I would give it a go. Price was the upper end of what I wanted to spend. Features are nice, image is outstanding with Blu Ray discs, looks good but is a pain to operate. After going through all the settings to make sure something was on that shouldn't be or visa versa it still takes two to three tries to get the unit on and provide a signal to the TV.
Summary: I currently have a lg 390. Nothing wrong with it, but I was looking forward to dual hdmi (older denon 4608), amazon prime, new netflix interface. The speed was an amazing upgrade over the older generation players. The setup was fine. It saw my router and the neighbors on initial setup. I played a couple short blu-ray scenes and then started the netflix download. Everything looked fine. It was taking a while, when I come back the download was incomplete.
