Summary: Went through (2) units and 1+ hour on phone with Samsung support to be told there is a software issue with the BD-F7500 related to HDMI 1 port carrying both audio and video. The only options that work are to run audio separately over an optical or component setup - or use HDMI 2 for audio-only through a receiver. Since Samsung's 4K TV's can't accept audio on a separate HDMI than video - and don't have an optical in...
Used 4 times over 9 months (10hr<). Intermittantly won't recognize discs

Summary: I bought this in February, 2014. I own 3 blu-ray movies (Hobbit 1&2 3D and Journey to Prometha 3D) . I used it 4 times (10hrs?) -- and only for my brand-new Blu-Ray moves, never for a DVD. Periodically, the device will fail to detect or load discs entirely. When the device fails to detect disks, it makes a high pitched sound like a flash bulb charging (spinning up?) followed by a series of 1-3 clicks like an old 3.5" floppy disk trying to read.

Summary: this blueray player is expensive, and stops working shuts off and restarts at any given moment, and when its working it looses the wireless connection and you have to restart it , it takes 3 or 4 min. for it to find the wireless connection when you first turn it on, i have had it 3 months, now i have to register it with samsung to get support and they want more information than the IRS, DO not buy this product!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: Read previous CNET, Amazon, and BestBuy reviews and suggestions before buying this unit. Received the BDF7500/za quickly from Amazon. Tried to install it yesterday and failed miserably. We are moderately tech people and have a good idea of what needed to be done to be successful in installing a sophisticated unit such as this. We wanted a blue-ray player, wireless capable unit with upscaling and potential for 3D. Our network is a DSL, the TV on cable.
firmware update takes features awayis it just me but
2 June 2013
Excerpt: is it just me or is samsung advertising products with certain features,only to remove them through updates, firmware ect. my un46es8000 ledtv settings removed, now this BD F7500 , no smart view ect....not good practice samsung i have bought items because of curtain features only to find out they are taking away.than to still advertise them as if they are currenty still active part of the product.
Cons: Did not meet expectations, taken away features
Summary: I have been really disappointed by this blu-ray player. After reading previous reviews I was expecting it to be fantastic, it has been anything but. Firstly playing discs, when it does it gives a good quality picture and upgrades dvds well also. However, getting it to play discs is the problem. The number of times it rejects a disc, even brand new blurays, is ridiculous and it often takes several tries to get it to work.
Summary: Not 4k therefor terrible, this is essentially an attempt at making Ultra HD (4K) movies viewable at home on your TV. The thing is Blu-ray isn't even being distributed in 4k. Buying this is a waste of money as it UPSCALES to 4k and essentially makes what should be awesome quality movie in 2k and makes it look worse. Analogy: Upscaling is essentially like increasing the size of an image in Microsoft paint on your computer.
Summary: This is not really a review of the BD-F7500, more about its physical size. I have every faith that it is a solid Samsung product, as I am a big fan of their stuff. The one star I gave it is purely for the misleading website details and hence the hassle I might now go through to get a refund. So, before I put the player into my brand new AV cabinet, I firstly hooked it up to my TV and switched it on to made sure it was working okay. Big mistake!
Optisch sehr anspruchsvolles Gerät, jedoch technisch nicht zu gebrauchen

Summary: Hatte mir ein neues 3D fähiges TVGerät gekauft, und mir gesagt ok dann willt 3D auch nutzen und mir diesen 3D fähigen Blu Ray Player gekauft, obwohl mein alter DVD perfekt funktionierte. Gerät kam wie gewohnt sehr schnell direkt angeschlossen Bedinungsanleitung durchgelesen und eine neue DVD eingelegt die Brille habe ich noch nicht also erstmal 2D und dann der schock permanente Aussetzer für 1 bis 2 Sekunden teilweise 2 Mal in der Minute. Also eine ca.
Summary: Zwar sind die Smartfunktionen sehr gut und auch Bildqualität top, aber nach ca. 4 Monaten hatte er Probleme einzelne Blurays zu erkennen, jetzt nach 6 Monaten spielt er fast KEINE Bluray mehr. Es kommt immer eine Fehlermeldung, dass Bluray verdreckt sei und abzuwischen. Test auf anderen Blurayplayern (Stand-Alone und am PC) bestätigte, dass diese dort problemlos gehen.
