Summary: Have issues with the wifi - watching Netflix it pauses a lot to stream - very very annoying!!!! I had my computer hooked up and it uses wifi and was better than this player. I was saddened to find out I cannot direct connect my cable to this device and due to location data cable is not an option. Just beware and know your needs before buying.
Summary: This bluray player has worked great. I was worried that since it was refurbished that it would have problems, but it is problem free. The packaging didn't look brand new but it wasn't bad. The player powers on quickly, it only takes about 5-10 seconds. I also like that when you pause a movie, the onscreen interface tells you how long the disc has remaining, rounded to the nearest minute.
Summary: VERY easy to install, came with HD cable that is a must, plays all formats so I can now work with my guitar instructional DVDs from England on my large flat panel TV instead of wearing out my computer with the much smaller monitor.
Summary: I am really loving the Blu-ray player, and feel it was a very good deal. Discs load so quickly it is amazing... they usually load before I can get all the other components turned on. Just seconds for most discs. The remote is simple and easy to use, and pausing, searching, rewinding and fast-forwarding all work very well. The USB picture viewing feature is nice as well.
Summary: I am so sorry I bought this unit. It died 33 days after I bought it. watched a whole 3 movies. well 2 and a half actually :( Not going to buy a refurb from these guys again. I have had good luck with Factory Refurbs but, once again learned a lesson about non-factory refurbs. What a rip-off!
BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE..........this DOES NOT play all Blu Ray discs at all.

Summary: BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE.............as somebody else here has mentioned the Player does NOT PLAY all discs as it claims. My UK Blu Ray discs came up with the message that it was the wrong region and the disc didnt play beyond that. Samsung or whoever made the claim that this can play all discs is basically lying and money should be refunded as this is clearly nothing but a hoax. Look elsewhere.............this is a fraud.
