Summary: Set up was easy and fast. Found and connected to WiFi immediately. App loading could be faster. I needed a device to connect to a pre-HDMI Denon receiver so the optical audio output was needed. But I had to by-pass the video thru the receiver and went directly to the monitor.
Pros: Easy setup and hookup
Cons: App loading and Internet browsing not speedy by today's standards.
Summary: My Oppo BDP-83 failed and I needed a Blu-ray player that can output analogue audio via RCA jacks and mix-down the audio fro 5.1 and 7.1 to 2 channel stereo within the player, and with DVD upscaling. The Samsung fit the bill.
Pros: Inexpensive, but all the key features are available Wireless set-up was straightforward-no problems Very fast Blu-ray loading and DVD loading, compared to my admittedly 6-year old Oppo BDP-83 DVD upscaling is as good as my 6-year old Oppo BDP-83, which was state of the art at the time It has ster...
Cons: Unlighted remote with very small, closely-spaced buttons Lack of ability to use iPod touch as a remote - which would avoid the need to use the remote.

I could not have made a better choice. Integration was easy along with setup

Summary: I purchased this as a compliment to my 75" Samsung and Bose Cinemate sound system. I could not have made a better choice. Integration was easy along with setup. Trained the remotes and all is good. The online menu is easy to navigate and not sure what else to say..
Summary: This player has two HDMI outs. One for sound only. This is good for my older receiver. It has dual N router. Pretty fast. It outputs 4k. Looks great on 4k TV. If it had 3D it would have earned the extra star. I have an older Samsung 3D player. It has a problem with the front display.
