Awesome player

Dumitru G., Newegg
6 June 2010
  • Summary: I would recommend this product to anyone, it is worth the money !
  • Pros: Live content works great (I use Netflix, Pandora & Youtube) DVDs & BluRay disks play awesome The Wi-Fi dongle is very cool and working fine.
  • Cons: I did my first firmware upgrade via Wi-Fi and it took several hours. I learned from this, and I did the second upgrade a few days ago with an USB stick. Worked like a charm, and took only a few minutes. Another annoying thing was this : during netflix live streaming, from time to time the movie j...

helpful hint

Andrew F., Newegg
23 April 2010
  • Summary: Fixes. get your player updated to the latest firmware. IF you have trouble with having to load the disc multiple times before it will play them = hold down the >> fast forward button until the player restarts! it will clean out the mem and start working like it should.
  • Pros: great PQ, the audio analog out (the 5.1 or 7.1) when using a pre or receiver that does not have HDMI but has the 5.1 in the player will decode the HD audio formats so you can listen to the new formats. Sounds amazing.
  • Cons: This thing is someone what of a nightmare to connect to the internet via wireless. Make sure you wireless router is set on the same security setting e.g. Wep or some of the newer ones. my router only has Wep in common with the player so I had to set it back to the old wep security all around the ...

User Review

Wesley M., Newegg
10 March 2010
  • Summary: This is really the top of the line player for because of the 7.1 analog outputs. It does everything I need it to do and I am very impressed with it.
  • Pros: Loads discs very fast. Slighty noisy, but not always, when loading blurays. Mulit-channel analog outputs which is a huge plus for anyone not wanting to upgrade their receiver just yet (as long as you have multi-channel inputs on it). So I get to enjoy all the high-def sounds of Dolby Digital True...
  • Cons: DTS-MA and DD TrueHD audio not possible with compressed video even though it'll read those tracks off a blu-ray. PC Streaming has been unsuccessful so far. I can get the player to see the computers on the network but it will not access them. No amount of passwords, usernames or ip addresses will ...

Great player... so far

Brian R., Newegg
25 January 2010
  • Summary: Not enough space here. Go read my full review on CNET. My username there is barnabas1969 and my review was posted on 1/25/2010.
  • Pros: Great picture! Fast Blu-ray movie load times. Netflix internet streaming!!! 7.1 multi-channel audio outputs with built-in decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Built-in 1GB memory. Media streaming from a network-connected PC.
  • Cons: Transport controls on top of player. PC streaming setup is a little clunky and requires some knowledge of networking and firewalls. Remote control is not very well laid-out and the player does not respond to it unless it is pointed DIRECTLY at the player.

Good player, but it's not an Oppo

Matthew B., Newegg
15 January 2010
  • Summary: After reading the other reviews, I feel lucky to have a functional device. It does a superb job of streaming Netflix and it is pretty reliable at playing Blu-rays. Would I pay $500 if Oppo's Blu-ray player streamed Netflix? Yes, but it doesn't.
  • Pros: The major reason I purchased this player was to be able to instantly stream movies from Netflix. I am very impressed with this feature. It does an amazing job. The picture is crisp and clear. However, you do get some distortion in fast moving scenes, but this is to be expected. I have also thorou...
  • Cons: The player skips and pauses, especially with slightly dirty or scratched discs and the PC streaming feature is extremely basic. It would be better if the player allowed you to use TVersity to give it more depth. Also, the remote buttons are very mushy and not very responsive.

Samuel L. Calhoun, Amazon
9 January 2010
  • Summary: This Samsung Blu-ray player does all it says it will do, the WiFi set up was very easy. Netflix works fine when my ISP Broadband connection is working at paid for bandwith, (Oceanic Time Warner Cable on Kauai is not in the top 10 for internet and not worth the price, but on an Island you have very...

Solid Player

Don M., Newegg
4 January 2010
  • Summary: If your using Win7 or vista 32/64 and you get either a "no shared folder" or "user name and password" error you need to make sure the shared folder you create is only one word and is located on the root of the main drive.
  • Pros: I'm very surprised by some of the reviews I've read on here regarding this player. I have had only one problem so far (see cons) but the perfomance and picture quality overall are excellent. Netflix and the other online media work as expected with either the wifi or direct lan line connected. Upd...
  • Cons: My only two complaints are not really with the player but with Samsung. The main feature that made me take a chance on this machine was the pc steaming function. Someone with little or no experience will never get this option to work there are just too many bugs that have to be worked out. (took ...

Excellent Blue-ray Player! Best when used with a Samsung TV

CyberTom "CyberTom", Amazon
28 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought this gift for my son who just graduated from college. We connected it to our Samsung LN52A650 LCD TV set we bought earlier this year with an HDMI cable and the combination is perfect. If you turn on the Blue-ray player it automatically turns on the TV and selects the correct input.

A Word about PC Streaming!

V. Ryan, Amazon
28 December 2009
  • Summary: All the blames about PC Streaming goes to one single thing : when the player identifies the shared computer, it asks us to enter the USER NAME (WHICH IS INFACT "NAME OF THE PC" (most people including me gets confused by this prompt and tries to enter USER Name which is wrong!! --FOR Eg.

Great Player, but wish it could play VOBs

E. Nichols, Amazon
24 December 2009
  • Summary: This player was fantastic out of the box. The picture is clear and the sound is great. Here were the things that inspired the 4 stars instead of 5: * The vob file format is not supported for external drives or computer shares * Manually configured computer shares are forgotten when you power the dvd...
