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.
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.
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.
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.
