Summary: I own one of these and 2 BD-F5900's. This model does not support Amazon Instant Video and that is why the one star rating. As a constant user of Amazon Instant Video this unit is useless to me.
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.
Summary: After my previous Samsung blu-ray player died under extended warranty, I was given this model and told it was the best at Futureshop. Well, after over a year it still won't play Resident Evil: Retribution, and Samsung's customer support has been negligible and insulting.
Summary: I am not impressed with the Samsung Bluray players. They are slow to boot, lack options like 2D to 3D conversion and HDMI options found in their older players and Sony players and the smart hub system has issues especially compared with their ES7100 and better TVs.
Summary: Every time movie is paused, the commentary is turned on when played again. Also starts from beginning if you stop and start. What happened to smart technology that remembers where you left off??? I have a three year old blu-ray player that does this, so why doesn't the new state of the art work?
Summary: I have always enjoyed samsung products! This one does not meet the quality i have grown to expect. I bought this model for the web browser...I have yet to browse the web. Talked to tech support and the problem, or so i am told, is my geographic location. Ok!
Summary: Update: Dead in less than 3 years. Locked up during software update and won't come out of it. I started to rate this player 2 stars, but then I remembered how much I paid. It's OK for the price. It plays Blu-ray DVDs that its non-updatable predecessor wouldn't.
Disappointed - BEWARE! Do NOT buy this for the web browser!!

Summary: Oh the player works fine. But I could get a basic Samsung BR player for half the price. I chose this unit for one reason: the web browser. And man was I disappointed. Don't get me wrong.... I knew the browser would not be that great, and utterly useless without a keyboard.
