Pros: The unit is compact, and easy to set up for BD live. The visuals and audio are excellent.
Cons: No composite, or component connections, though no worse than PS3 in that way. Connections for the HDMI and optical seem a little loose. No obvious problems, though sometimes the player doesn't seem to respond to the touch buttons or the remote.
Summary: great picture, has some funny bugs I can't seem to work around. Wireless connection and commands a little funky, super cool case/body style. Odd DVD loading made finding a location for the unit limiting. From the side, plan in advance for future purchase. Menus could be easier, but ok. Using with Samy 8000 series LED TV. Price was great value. Love the built in streaming, though our Roku is better. Streaming picture quality is very good even with non HD stream.
"Great Buy, easy set-up, perfect picture. Love it"

Pros: It took me 20 minutes from the time I brought it in the front door to when I was watching movies from my instant key on netflix. I have used it every day since I bought it. Thank you Samsung for making such a great product!
Cons: I know it isn't Samsung's fault but I really wish there was a way to watch Hulu content on the player. I don't have a BlockBuster account so I could use that button for something different.
Summary: I don't have a lot of time for this - so I will keep it short. The Blu Ray is beautiful, but it does attract a lot of dust and fingerprints need to be wiped off everytime you touch the front of it. The wireless USB does stick out like a sore thumb - however, it is awesome to be able to watch Netflix movies on your TV via streaming.
Summary: I bought this player mainly because of its stylish design and would match perfectly when I get a LED TV, most likely Samsung LED to match TOC style. This player has pretty fast disc loading speed. Setup for network and online streaming is simple. However the menu and remote may not be very easy to use. Wireless works fine for me without any major issues.
Pros: Design and Styling, Good disc loading, good online streaming.
Summary: This is now my 3rd Blu ray player and I like it the best. I got this player do to the ability to stream netflix movies wireless. After getting it, took me about 30 min to get it up and running. The manual isn't very user friendly. Once I got the wireless connection to work, it was worth it. I signed on netflix and picked out the movie I wanted to stream and quickly I was watching the movie on my TV.
Excerpt: "I bought the new samsung blue ray disc player for two hundred pounds and i have to say it looks fantastic. its extremely thin, lightweight and looks really slick. the control buttons on the unit itself are more like touch screen buttons that regular ones which does make me worry about repair costs if they fail as its not as simpple as replacing a button but tthis is the way everything seems to be going these days. the picture and sound you get from ...
Pros: great look, lightweight wall mounted or free standing
Cons: remote controll very bland doesnt really match the player itself
