My purchase of this new Samsung was mainly for streaming online movies...

Summary: I find the process very time consuming and not at all what I expected, setting up the player was a job within its self, I tried to get help or some answers but nothing.... Every widget that seem to be needed to play a certain game or run one of the steps do not seem to work...
Netflix Does Not Work Properly (same as my Samsung TV)

Summary: I have the latest firmware and spent an hour with Samsung Customer support, they cannot get Netflix to work. They claim it is a known issue with their server and it will be fixed in 24 hours. Issue has been escalated to tier 2. Technical support is weak.
Summary: My overall opinion with this player is that it's not worth the money. I bought this at a local store and set it up immediately when I got home. Once starting it, there were multiple software updates which took a good 15 - 20 minutes. The simple set-up is easy and quick.
A blu-ray player should play well (this does) but play well with others too (not so much)

Summary: For reference, I'm an audiophile, a techy guy, a software engineer, and very competent when it comes to electronics. I bought this device to get internet-capable features like Netflix and Hulu onto a "dumb" LCD TV.
Summary: I have 2 different 3d blue ray players. One I love the other I do not. This one I do not and here is why: The good: This unit plays 3d blue ray disks as it should. Video quality is very good. The unit is small and compact, allowing it to fit just about anywhere.
Summary: It works fine. However it is VERY slow to do anything...click play... open app... turn on like 1998 56k modem slow like not kidding if I had the do over I would have bought something different.
Summary: I guess as a Blu Ray player this is fine, but you can find better and cheaper options. If you bought this or any other Samsung players for the disc 2 digital feature you are going to be sorely disappointed. Samsung have now removed any mention of Disc 2 Digital from their advertising.
