good 4K/3D player, but USB port in front quit playing MP4 sound altogether. Returned unit.

Stephen E. Franklin, Amazon
22 November 2014
  • Summary: Really good player, but had problems with USB front port. Never resolved. I watched MP4 movies through USB thumb drive port In front. At first, this unit was flawless, then, it quit playing all MP4 sound. I did a major reset, checked and rechecked all sound Settings. I found nothing to help. Unfortunately, had to return. A new one might not have this problem. I plan to wait for 2015 models And watch CES 2015 in January.

  • Summary: A sleek and full-featured Bu-ray player; however, I was unable to integrate with my Mitsubishi 265 series LCD HDTV, which includes many of the bells and whistles of the Samsung blu-ray player. The BD-F7500 also duplicates much of what I have with my Roku box and the TV. After eventually getting the player set up and going through the menus, the next day when I tried to use the blu-ray, I could not get the user menu to appear.

Decent player; buggy updates and non-existent support

Michael S. Young "Michael S Young", Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: Works solidly in most regards, but ever since the latest update it has a tendency to just turn off for no reason and my Hulu Plus app has disappeared from the menu, meaning that in order to access it, I have to go to the Samsung Store every single time, shaving precious minutes off my life. Still decent in most regards.

Not a bad bluray player but so-so netflix

  • Summary: Still evaluating this bluray player. I did the latet firmware update and haven't had a chance to cycle through enough blurays to evaluate picture quality. I did notice that my Western Digital Live does a much better job on Netflix picture processing than this bluray player which was very disappointing as I was hoping this would have eliminated the need for the WD live box (no such luck) and this was on a high end UNF8000 Samsung TV.

Product is good but it has some glitches and support sucks

franbene "Gadget freak", Amazon
19 December 2013
  • Summary: I've bought this product because I have a Samsung Lcd Tv and I want it a 100% compatibility. The unit works fine and loads really fast the Bluray's discs compared to other brads, the image is very, very good. The cons for this unit came when I've I started to have problems loading some Universal bluray movies like Oblivion and Jobs. The unit starts to load the movie, shows the Universal logo and then it hangs up showing 000000 and freezes there.

Rather disappointing

formerx69, Crutchfield
15 October 2013
  • Summary: Although Crutchfield exceeded my expectations, I am somewhat disappointed with the Blu-ray player. Some discs I recorded don't properly play or freeze up during playback. Some ripped content on my WD USB hard drive hangs up during playback. These titles played fine on previous equipment which was 8 years old. User interface seems fast but is actually rather lackluster for the price of the unit. I expected to be wowed by this player. I am not.
  • Pros: Fast loading. Attractive design.
  • Cons: Doesn't always play content flawlessly. Interface is just OK for the price. App selection is fairly limited.

Browser App Slow, Quirky, & Crashes Often

NotDigitalYet, brandsmartusa.com
29 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased the BD-F7500 as a hoped-for key piece in the digital upgrade of my home; i.e., Wi-Fi router, BluRay, printer, and smartphone. I planned to use the BD as a Wi-Fi bridge to bring the Web and Movie services to my older HD TV (it has no Ethernet of Wi-Fi), and to mirror smartphone media through the BD to the TV. First, BD set-up was quick and easy and connecting to the Wi-Fi network a breeze.
  • Pros: Bright display, set-up was quick and easy., wi-fi set-up easy.
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, web browser app slow quirky & crashes often.

BD Web Browser App Not What I Hoped For!

  • Cons: The Web Browser App is slow, has quirky search mechanics, and crashes often.

Samsung BD-F7500

KYKID, Crutchfield
30 May 2013
  • Summary: I wanted a New 3D Blu Ray Player that had 2 HDMI Outs. My Receiver does not support 3D. I went with this Model. It does what it says about 3D. But. Watching some reg. DVD`s. I did not like what it did for up conversion. Also. I wanted one that would play Movies from a USB Drive, and Movies that I burned to a DVD-R. It would not play either one. A screen keeps coming up and saying. That it can not play this format. I made some changes on my Computer. But.

Fast blu ray player, amazing picture and FEW ISSUES !

D. Janapa "Djei", Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: I would say its undoubtedly one of the best blu ray players for 2013 with 4k upscaling with a few issues. I have always been a fan of Samsung blu ray family. This time wanted to try out the others in the market as i was disappointed that my 2011 TV dint have Amazon instant video and so did my 2011 Samsung BDD6700 blu ray player. I have tested out the following 1) Sony BDP-S790 (2012 model continues to 2013) Have never been a great fan of Sony.
