Summary: One of the best blu-ray DVD players. BestBuy sells it for $350 so not sure why Amazon has such outrageous price. Things I like: - Netflix and Pandora interface works great - Blu-ray and DVDs look great Things I don't like: - No Wi-Fi interface. Didn't want to run a 50 ft cable to connect it to the internet via my router (DI-624) at the other end of the room.
Summary: I bought this player last month and overall am pretty satisfied with the purchase. With the Best Buy holiday special, this was priced only slightly higher than comparable brands and offers greater features. It was very easy to set up -- it auto-discovers a wired network connection, and the video & audio config are easy to understand. No problems so far with either Blu-Ray or DVD discs. I picked this model for the Pandora & Netflix streaming options.
Summary: My setup: - Firmware dated 12/02/2008 - Connected to Panasonic 1080p plasma via HDMI cable - Connected to my 10Mbps wi-fi network using Asus wireless adapter wl-330ge At first I got a lot of wi-fi connection drop when I used WPA2 encryption, but after changing it to WPA encryption, everything is fine. Maybe this is the asus's issue, and not samsung's. Pro: - Netflix and Pandora streaming are wonderful! I got Netflix HD and SD streaming without any issue.
