No Amazon Instant Video

Robert Elliot, Amazon
25 January 2014
  • 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.

Poorly designed crap. Shame on you Samsung.

Jeffrey Morgan, Amazon
9 November 2013
  • Summary: This unit is poorly designed. We bought it to get our feet wet in the app driven DVD player market. We now use it to play movies only. The remote-based interface is insanely slow to navigate.

DO NOT BUY THIS!

John R. Machay, Amazon
26 October 2013
  • 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.

Not happy with this one for network use

Timothy E. Winn, Amazon
20 August 2013
  • 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.

Horrible blu-ray player, no support

Norman Wolf, Amazon
20 May 2013
  • 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.

Not Impressed!

Chris M, Amazon
31 March 2013
  • 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.

Not happy

Joseph Tinder, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • 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?

Avoid this product

dj, Amazon
26 November 2012
  • 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!

Would be worth more if it worked decently

Jemez Fred, Amazon
18 November 2012
  • 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!!

Chris B, Amazon
5 November 2012
  • 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.
