The BDF7500 is more than twice the cost of the 5900 but not really better in almost any way except the additional analog outs ..
3 December 2014
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. The BDF7500 is more than twice the cost of the 5900 but not really better in almost any way except the additional analog outs if you need them (most people don't). The design is as funky as in the pics.
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. Which is silly - I'm trying to upscale 1080p content, not watch native UHD content.
High quality but missing the mark on a basic feature

Excerpt: Bought this product to navigate the web and view shows on TV. But am hampered but not being able to use a keyboard with this unit, either wired or wireless. We are forced to use the cumbersome ridiculous remote control.
Summary: I bought this blue ray player basically for the internet functions. I am really disappointed with the remote. I have a newer Sony TV and all though they have dedicated buttons for contolling(TVpower, input, etc) they are not programable for any TV except for a Samsung. (shame on you, Samsung) I called Crutchfield to confirm and they said that the remote is Samsung only. I would not buy this unit or other Samsung products just because of this feature.
Don't get if you have a 2014 UHD TV with built in upscaling.

Summary: I bought this player to go with my new 65" Samsung HU8550. I Figured what's the point of an expensive 4k tv without an expensive 4k upscaling bot-ray player. Well whenever the blu-ray is outputting it's signal in 2160 my movies look dull almost DVD quality. The only way I can watch a clear movie it to set the blu-ray player to only output in 1080p man and not in 4k.
Summary: Playback of the upscaling on a 1600p monitor rendered jagged looking images. The loading speed was decent but not ultra-fast as described. The wifi is unreliable and often drops out even though the Samsung Plasma TV's wifi that's above it is stable. Overpriced for the features.
Summary: If anyone is thinking of buying this player to use as a streaming device (using the Browser of the Home Page) FORGET IT. I live in Spain and hoped to combine this DVD with its Wi-Fi facility to obtain UK TV. As explained by Samsung tech dept today (14/8/2014), at long length, the machine has insufficient memory. The Wi-Fi is there to pick up apps, nothing more. I do not know from where the Smart comes ........... maybe a figment of the AD-mans dreams? ..............
