Summary: It baffles me that Samsung would have continued manufacturing this product in spite of its obvious flaws. Unfortunately, I didn't pay much attention to the reviews before I purchased it. I've since learned that every negative word written about the E5900 is true -- it has unexplainable connectivity issues, it takes forever to load (and often never does), the video freezes in the middle of a movie for no discernable reason and the controls are sluggish at best.
Summary: I am so glad I purchased this item. It has WiFi capability which helps for streaming Netflix. We like to access You Tube videos as well and of course it does a great job of playing the dvds and blu-ray discs. We are enjoying it a LOT!!
Summary: I bought this device to watch stuff on Netflix. The set-up was difficult because I prefer to allow access to my network through MAC address filtering rather than a password, but there wasn't a way to find the MAC address of the BluRay player. Once I did get it working, whenever I use it to connect to Netflix is slow and difficult. I frequently get messages indicating I'm not connected to the wireless network.
Summary: I bought this to utilize the Samsung Verizon FiOS app in a spare bedroom. I didn't want to put a full HD box in the room and this provided an option at less than half a year's cost. Great value.
Summary: Works great with DVDs but the smart part is slow and freezes a lot. Try to watch HD Movies( Vudu,CinemaNow, ) and it freezes or goes to standard format and still charges you for HD formatted movie.
