Summary: Seeing what I paid for this unit last December and what they are charging for it now, I had fully expected it to last at the least 3 years before having to replace it. Called manufacturer's support line, told them the problem which they apologized for and informed me that i can pay to ship it back...
Pros: Lots of features, easy to use gui, 7.1 audio support, excellent wireless signal provides great streaming throughout my bunker of a house.
Cons: Disc player stopped working the other day right in the middle of a movie, won't recognize the disc nor any other blu-ray/dvd/cd anymore.
Summary: In spite of liking the Samsung smart blu-ray players for their design and software, I will not buy another one. This is the second unit in 2 years that has died on me. They just do not hold up.
Pros: Inexpensive, Lightweight
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, do not hold up to normal usage
The BDF7500 is more than twice the cost of the 5900 but not really better in almost any way except the additional analog outs ..

Summary: I tried three blu-ray players to hook up with my new Sony 55X900A television, this one, the Panasonic BDT360 and the Samsung BDF5900. I have an Oppo BDP-103 connected to our projector and so I got used to the high quality build and performance of that unit.
BD-F7500 does not upscale Full HD to UHD on Panasonic UHDTV
15 October 2014
Summary: I purchased the BD-F7500 specifically for the Upscaling - and it does not work with my Panasonic AX800 UHDTV. I have been working with Samsung support but they continue to advise me that I need >25mbps internet connection to obtain Netflix UHD content.
Summary: I expected far better from Samsung. After some web research, I find that my player is not defective per se, but has a continuing F/W issue. I did perform a full reset of the player and Smart Hub after each F/W update to be sure that I was giving the player a fair shot at acting properly.
Pros: First things first...I did not buy this at Newegg. I bought it from elsewhere, but I feel compelled to relate my experiences. First, the pros are that it does indeed support dual band WiFi, has a dual core processor, is compact, and has a nicely designed Smart Hub interface. Firmware updates are ...
Cons: Where to start... Upon hooking this BD Player up I had no trouble getting the Smart Hub working and subscribing to Hulu Plus, etc. At first, there were a couple of minor issues such as losing connectivity (the TV program would not load, and the player would flash the message to check my internet ...
Pros: Supports a lot of different formats and services. Fast boot times Pretty good Netflix interface Great typing prediction
Cons: Prominent placement of Samsung services that I don't care about and can't remove or hide Extremely unstable while playing Netflix. I experience playback glitches and complete crashes/reboots at least once a day.
