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

Ernest Tolton, Amazon
25 May 2013
  • 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)

C Z, Amazon
24 February 2013
  • 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.

Not worth the price

Ashley G., Amazon

  • 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.

not thrilled

LMV, Amazon

  • Summary: I've never had a blu ray player, and I am loving what a blu ray player with smart hub in general can do. I love having it for Netflix and pandora on the tv. However, it is VERY slow.

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.

Slow and difficult

M. Grello, Amazon
27 December 2012
  • 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.

Waste of money. Disc 2 Digital removed.

Mark O. Goode "Mgoode", Amazon
8 December 2012
  • 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.
