Pros Solid build
Great user interface
Great picture quality & controls
Competitive price point
Cons Very slow start-up for streaming video options. Mine would not stay connected with my LAN connection. It dropped from time to time requiring a reset. I returned it for another one but had the same problem. I finally bought a Panasonic. Stable now.
Summary I enjoyed my Samsung player except for the slowness of connecting to streaming options and the inability to maintain a LAN connection. I have multiple LAN connections and all are stable except for the BD player. Now that I replaced the Samsung for a Panasonic the connection is stable and much quicker. Should have bought a Panasonic first.
Pros Cheap - good value as a Blue Ray Player (only)
Cons The Wireless Adapter WILL fail in less than a year, and costs about $100.00.
Samsung refuses to stand behind this "add-on supply" even if it fails in a few months. NO replacement.
VERY BAD interface for entering password characters (e.g
Summary Not a bad Blue Ray Player. BUT..for wireless Internet access - buy something else.
Wasted days of service calls [reboot, updated firmware, router settings] only to discover that the faulty part was the Samsung USB adapter (add-on antenna for wireless connection via USB). Customer complaint agent suggested a return to the purchase location for a possible repair...!
I finally gave up and switched to the wired connection (at more unexpected expense and wiring hassle through the house). Seems to work fine for now, However, the promise of a wireless connection was indeed short-lived. If that's what you want (e.g. a Netflix box) forget it !
Pros Great connection with wireless devices and the internet. The AllShare feature works well in my home theater. I can send pictures, video and music from my PC via my wireless network to my home theater system.
Cons It only has a single disc capacity.
Summary Excellent addition to a home theater system.
Pros Its thin and shiney
Cons Poor Connectivity. Does Not Interact With Network. Difficult to use and adjust. Stingy warranty. Uninspired and non-functional apps.
Summary Does not connect to wi-fi without a slow (5-10 mins.) and very aggravating process. Does not stay connected, frequent stalls and rebuffers and "retrieving" errors interrupting netflix stream. Warranty and streaming gave out about same time. Oldschool menu control like old cellphone keyboards, slow and cumbersome. Apps are dull and not much variety... they also dont work especially well.
Stay away from this machine. It looks cool but it is one headache after another.
