Summary: I have this player I would strongly state that you not purchase unless you $300.00 to spend what is really a "beefed up DVD player". It won't play any blu-ray discs past March of this year. I have called their "customer service" countless times with no resolution. They will not provide you with any up to date firmware nor any real support. The last rep I spoke to laughed at me. So do yourself a favor and shop for another brand. This is a big waste of money.
Summary: Bought it a while back. Upgraded firmware Still won't play some disks. Customer Service is worthless and not interested in the problem. Bought the Panasonic and it is a dream machine. Plays everything beautifully! I will sell the Sansung on Ebay... what a waste!

Summary: Robert Says: "Can't explain some of the poor reviews other than maybe some people don't know how to properly setup the player." Robert, Maybe you do not understand the Blu Ray format and how little this player delivers compared to what the Blu Ray format is supposed to deliver. Also, you have not even ackowledged the possible softening bug, although I believe that is a spin from Sony to try and save face from the poor Samsung player *and* the poor initial releases from...
Summary: I bought this after I had already boughtthe Toshiba machine expecting to see a better picture. What a big disappointment. I returned it after 2 days. First off, despite an HDMI connection to a 1080P Samsung TV, it did not recognise the BluRay discs Terminator and Crash DVDs. Then I played a regular dvd and it recognised that, and only after that did it play the BLU ray discs. The quality was indistinguishable from that from my regular $37 DVD player.
THIS UNIT ONLY A SLIGHT BETTER THAN A UPCONVERTED DVD player
