Did not work at first... no video... read for fix!
11 December 2012
Summary: This player did not work at first and I'm giving it a low score because it caused me three hours of frustration which was unnecessary. I have this player connected via HDMI to my Pioneer AVR (receiver) and then HDMI to my Samsung 46 inch 1080p HDTV. Initial setup for this player was simple.
Summary: I bought this specifically since I was tired of connecting my Laptop to the HDMI port of my telivision. After going through the setup and updating the firmware, then obtaining an IP address for my local network, the Web browser just spins and spins. The tech support at Samsung is a joke.
Summary: It plays back 1080p and 3D blu ray discs wonderfully- if that is the only function you need, then this is fine, but don't pay more than $60 for it. The Samsung AllShare where you can playback from USB devices and over wifi networks is laggy, slow to pick up the network folders, and it freezes...

Summary: I bought this Unit 11/24/12 from another vendor. I felt compelled to write this as it may help others that find themselves in this situation. First I want to say that my primary use of the player is a Pandora music player, I rarely use the DVD/Blu ray part these days.
typical blu ray player with typical response lag from this pricepoint

Summary: its a blu ray player so most people will be fine with playing their movies and streaming netflix with some pandora as well. most of my compaints come from teh sofware side of the device but really it can be grouped with any player that is not a gaming device ie a PS3.
Summary: Bought this blu ray player 2 days ago. Found out 5 min ago ( live chat) that when Blockbuster updated the app this model no longer gets on demand. Can get Netflix, havent tried anything else yet.
Summary: It plays blu rays fine but the web browser is very limited. It doesn't support Flash so you can't play any videos. The webpages come up fine but you can't play the videos. It is difficult to navigate with the very limited controller.
