If you like awful blu-ray players this one is for you!

David Gregorowicz, Amazon
22 October 2013
  • Summary: There's a very annoying delay between the remote and the response of the player, so much so that a lot of times I'll hit the button on the remote for a second time thinking that I didn't press it all the way down the first time only to have it then register both at the same time and respond to both button presses. The netflix is nice when it works, but it routinely will not load.

Defective, company will not honor return

Bill, Amazon
14 October 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this to have a method to get to Netflix. Well it locks up while playing Netflix, probably locks up with everything. Had to repower and start over. I complained to Amazon feedback, and they indicated the unit could be returned... well DealStop, stopped the deal, so don't deal with them... I'm stuck with a bad unit... you could be next... and don't get the Samsung Blu-ray 'cause it doesn't work...

Died after 3.5 months

Wolfgang Rupprecht, Amazon
20 May 2013
  • Summary: Got it on Feb 4th and it died on May 18th. The first sign of trouble was it freezing during "Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter". It wouldn't respond to any buttons either on the face of the unit or the remote. I needed to pull the power code to reset it. After that it would sometimes boot normally and other times boot into a blank screen where only some of the buttons had any effect. Now on May 20, it appears to only ever boot into a blank screen.

Do not buy for Netflix

Sean Guitrau "Don't Tread on Me", Amazon
18 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to use with netflix in my bedroom. The netflix menu is very limited. Now let talk about the constant Freezing and requires a reboot to get the thing to work. I can't watch any netflix programs because it will just lock up the player until you power it off and back on. Only to have it lock up again. Utter crap and there are no updates to fix this.

WORTHLESS!

Behr17, Amazon
23 January 2013
  • Summary: My husband and are completely disappointed with Samsung and this Blu-ray player. We purchased this in August and have literally thrown it in the trash in less than 6 months. The Blu-ray portion stopped working just a few months after purchase. We spent hours trouble-shooting from updating the software, checking the connections, etc. We then called customer support who had us do everything we spent hours doing the day before with no luck.

Shoddy, shoddy support.

S. Ward "Burtster", Amazon
15 November 2012
  • Summary: Bought this in May. I was impressed by not only the sound and image quality of blurays, but also the quality of upscaled dvds. The player itself hums and whirrs a bit at the start of watching a disk, but soon quietens down after 6 or 7 minutes. By September it had ceased to work. Half way through a dvd (not a bluray) the sound and audio cut out to a black screen.

Dålig

Pitbull, Prisjakt
8 December 2012
  • Summary: Min ger ifrån sig ett mycket störande ljud som hörs även när man spelar en film på hög volym. Låter betydligt mer än PS3 Slim. Kan inte rekommendera denna.
