Summary: The lag between pressing buttons on the remote and seeing any response on the screen is infuriating. Issues: - Very slow to react to the remote control. Pausing takes so long that I think the signal didn't register and go to hit pause again only to finally see the first pause occur.
Summary: Bought two of these and one is defective. The defective player has a widely reported problem. It won't power on. It powers off immediately after you power it on. I've read and seen this problem with other model Samsung players with the touch button controls.
Summary: I got this for my mom. So far it works fine as a basic player. She doest have internet and doesn't use the streaming options. I loaded the latest firmware at my house before hooking it up. Update was pretty easy and quick.
plays fine, remote has labels in an "adult-sized" font
13 March 2015
Summary: Pros: plays fine, remote has labels in an "adult-sized" font, unit is small and sleek. Cons: physical controls on the machine are odd/hard to see and use if in a cabinet, the picture doesn't strike me as any better than my old DVD player, the on-screen menu has a bunch of junk in it if all you want...
Summary: I purchased this on November 14, 2014. It has started making a high pitched squeaky noise that happens several times a minute while the player is in use. This is incredibly annoying and I have little hope that the blu-ray player will last all that long. Not happy at all!
Excerpt: Well built and easy to use. Set up was quick out of the box and has a very intuitive user interface. This is my 2nd Samsung and am happy with this additional purchase. The price point is perfect and it plays and streams everything I need.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Quality Construction
