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: The subject line says it all really. I bought this player for two reasons, playing discs and streaming Netflix. The unit plays discs well and I am quite satisfied -- though, perhaps unsurprisingly, it can be fussy about playing older DVDs -- but the Netflix streaming is very unreliable.
Summary: This player plays well, accesses network, streams fast, enables a few high-demand apps and interfaces with 64gb usb flash drives perfectly. The key reasons to get this player is for the acceptable video formats.
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.
Did not work at first... no video... read for fix!

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.
Reasonable quality, lots of features, but not perfect

Summary: I am generally satisfied with this product, though I did get it refurbished at a lower than advertised price. For the current full price I would be a little less satisfied. The summary is that this is a nice Blu-ray player with good features, but that nothing seems very polished on it, and the Smart...
Meh product. Save your money for something that's better

Summary: Pros : Easy to setup and configure. Lots of features. Wireless runs solid. Cons : Several of those features don't work, like the often mentioned web browser hangs issue. On my system Hulu also hangs and I can't get a wireless keyboard/mouse to function.
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.
