Summary: Unlike my old DVD players, this one gets hot on top. I guess its like a mini computer inside. You can use apps from Samgsung. Netflix works superb and they recently updated Youtube for faster and easier navigation. I got it because it can handle just about any type of media format you can throw on it (including raw HD TS files, HD camcorder files and Sony/Panasonic AVCHD format). It handles subtitles files, which the Sony bluray could not.
Summary: The player works fine and I'm no connoisseur of BlueRay players. I just wanted something that played 3D bluerays with no problems. I'm docking this one a point because I've run into numerous instances of bluerays either loading extremely slow if at all. I post this mostly to help others that might experience the same issue because the solution is so easy.
Summary: So far... so good! I did A LOT of research on blu ray players before purchasing this one for my graphics nerd boyfriend. He loves it so far, and none of the bugs like suggested in the other reviews.
Summary: Great looking piece. Pro: beautiful image, quick turn on, touch selection, 2 out hdmi: one for tv and other to home theater (no need for ht to be on) Con: sometimes needs to be turn on more than one to appear on the initial screen.
Summary: This is a great 3D blu ray player. Although the load times are not as fast as say, my home computer's lightning quick blu ray player...it is fast enough. Whereas my HTCP burns through load times in a few mere seconds...this one can take just upwards of 20-30 seconds per blu ray. Not a big deal One of the best features that makes this Blu Ray Player stand out is the 2D to 3D conversion. I also have 2D to 3D conversion on my 2011 Samsung flagship tv..
Summary: If this is fast load times, I would hate to see slow load times. This is my first blu ray player and I've found the load times to feel slow to me. So I'm glad I waited for this model to come out. Samsung app store doesn't have a huge amount of apps, but it's got the necessities like a You Tube app. Like how the battery door to the remote is attached. USB port is hidden on the right side, flip the cover down to access it.
3rd 3D Blu-Ray player, FINALLY the one I'm keeping!

Summary: This is the third 3D Blu-Ray player I've brought home after our 6 year old Sony Carousel player began spitting discs, and it was quite the ordeal getting here. But that's a whole 'nother story, and you can read about it in the comments to my Sony S580 review, if you're so inclined. I've got the Samsung BD-D6700 connected to a 2011-model Samsung D8000 plasma screen, the 59" model.
Summary: I was excited to get my new Samsung BD-D6700 3D Blu Ray player.. It was easy to set up and when I played a Blu Ray the picture was amazing. I set up Net Flex and watched the Tutors and quality was better than I expected. That was short lived. I turn off the machine and when I went back and turn it on it lit up but would not take a disc and would not connect to internet... the package seemed a little crushed but the player looked fine.
