Summary: I also own a large Samsung Flat Screen TV so I believed by pairing the 2 compatible electronics I would be satisfied. Extremely slow downloads at set up time - when playing a DVD the picture always freezes stating that mode on player is not compatible with TV - I cut the damn cord off it with a scissors and its laying in the trash barrel. Very dissapointing Samasung !! Stay away from this player.
Unfortunately this Refurbished Samsung Product is garbage

Summary: Whatever process Samsung went through to 're-certify' this product as refurbished, they have failed. The picture signal continually flashes on/off, restarting movies half-way through is a regular occurrence, and having to disconnect & reconnect my HDMI cables seems to be the only temporary solution since getting this Blu-Ray player. I'm returning.
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. Smart Hub Issues It requires network access just to load which takes time and it does not provide progress information.
Summary: I Recieved This 3D Movie Player. Bought 4 Or 5 3D Movies, And Thie Player Has Locked Up On Every One Of Them. I Have To Reboot And Find Position In Movie Everytime. I Have Always Liked Samsung Products, But So Far This One Is Terrible.
Summary: I bought the Samsung because of the unique HDMI inputs as I have a 6 year old Denon A/V receiver. I decided to hook it up directly with an ethernet cable I fished through the wall. It was slower in every respect than my wifi wireless Panasonic plasma. It also locked up so bad at times I would have to unplug my Panamax surge protector and start over. The user interface is not as good as Panasonic and there is no Amazon Instant. I return the unit after 1 week.
Summary: Samsung products in general lacks quality and this one was not an exception. In my 25th day of operating this device, wifi connectivity went down and never came back. Talked to Samsung support, no use. Returning to Amazon. PLEASE STAY AWAY !!!!
