Summary: Some con artists sell an "upgraded" version for $200 that supposedly sports physical enhancements allowing it to play PAL and NTSC, as well as all regions. It comes with that ability out of the box; the region free setting requires a key-combo on the remote.
Pros: It's small and contains all the basics. It plays both PAL and NTSC, a perk I didn't know about before I ordered.
Cons: Horrible menu, counter intuitive controls, poor remote layout. Samsung needs to hire some user interface designers pronto. It also froze up a few times, buggy software no doubt.
Summary: Altho mine is NOT refurbished I did want to reply about the wifi range which I think is pretty amazing!! I live in the apt above the garage and the router is the the main house several feet away. The player itself is nice. Great for our bedroom.
Summary: This player was refurbished by Samsung and they were obliged to insert a tag for Cineavia and change the model number to BD-E6400 The whole idea of purchasing a 2012 model was to escape this nasty audio encryption.
