Excerpt: The Samsung BD-F5900 is a Blu-ray player that offers more features than most other players do, an easy-to-use interface and very speedy performance. It also has an inexpensive price too, but CD ripping is both limited and slow.
Pros: Plenty of applications, Speedy, Good overall performance
Summary: I really wish the Samsung BD-F5900 had better DVD performance since it would make for an easy recommendation. As it is, it performs well with Blu-ray content and is a great streaming player, and so if that is the only content you plan to use, I'd say to go ahead and get it. If you want to use DVD content, that is where we run into issues. If the only things you watch on DVD are films, then you can enable the 24p mode for DVD and be fine.
Excerpt: Every year a new generation of Blu-ray players hits the market from the major electronics manufacturers. While 3D was the last big advancement to hit the streets, the latest rage is 4K upconversion in the flagship players, but you won’t find that on the budget-friendly Samsung BD-F5900. What you will get for $150 is a 3D-capable player with a plethora of streaming options, a built-in Web browser, and Wi-Fi capability.
