Summary: Pros: Easy setup, easy to use, Connects to everything but Netflix Cons: Could not connect to Netflix server. Tried everything. Called Netflix and they said that they were having issues with Blu-Ray DVD players. Called Samsung, tried everything they asked me to do. Easily 2 hours. Nothing helped. Result: Returned to COSTCO for a full refund. The Returns Person said that they heard about this problem.
Good player, but software update will trash Netflix

Summary: This is the third one I have bought, thought they were a really good purchase until I did the software update. The next day I spent two hours trying to get onto my netflix, finally googled it and found out that the update trashed netflix and there is no fix except to reset your player to the original settings, ugh!!!
Summary: As noted with someone else who gave this 4 stars. The unit makes a noise when playing dvd's. It is not loud but you will hear it when watching movies. Very distracting. I had another unit from Sony that was quiet. Disappointed this is getting high ratings when it has a noise problem. Wish I would have noticed that review when buying. It has good ratings from some but none seem to mind the noise problem. You have been warned. This unit makes a noise when watching disc.
Excerpt: Purchased this product because of great price and extremely happy with the unit. Only negative is that I repeatedly lose internet connection while accessing some APPS and waste time getting it reconnected, but this could be totally unrelated to the unit? Once connection made, unit streams great - quick and video looks great. Love that unit also plays both DVD and Blue-ray. I can't comment on the 3D part of it because haven't used it.
Summary: My husband and kids should be doing this review because they love the blue ray more than I do as I barely get to use it because of them...lol. With this being said, I am thinking about ordering another one and putting it in a different room. The set up was easy. I like how the HDMI cord came with my purchase. You can do so much with this blue ray. Of course you can watch Netflix, Amazon movies, listen to Pandora, view you photos, get on Facebook, etc.
Excerpt: I bought this Blu Ray device mostly for use as media box. So dar it has been operating very smoothly and reliably. Picture quality and sound are great, the assortment of applications good. Configuration is very simple. I love that it connects seamlessly with my galaxy s3 and I can play anything on big screen now.
Excerpt: I found the item very easy to set up and use the Smart WIFI Functions. This was a great value for the price. Take it slow when you set up the Smart Functions and all will go well.....Best Thing it will make your not smart tv smart...which what I needed for my 55" Sharp TV (pre-smart).
Pros: Backwards Compatible, DVD Upconversion, Easy Set-Up, Excellent Image Quality, Good Connections, Good Soundtrack Support, Upgradeable
