"Plays blu-rays beautifully like a blu-ray player should"4.0 starson by rurallaw
Pros: Plays blu-ray beautifully, DLNA support (needs work); Streaming content
Cons: DLNA for wireless is different that from USB; Samsung Media Share software very limited option settings
Summary: It's a budget blu-ray, but plays blu-rays very well. Wireless dongle is expensive, but there are some much cheaper alternatives out there. (I already had a compatible USB N dongle that I bought for about $10. Just got lucky it had the same chip set.)
My only complaint is DLNA support varies based on input method. Media accessed via UBS has by far the most supported formats. Wireless streaming seems to be very, very picky on what it will accept. I've not transfered a lot of file types to DVD and tried, but I did notice that some files that worked when connected via USB drive would not play from a burned DVD. This could be a big hassle if you already have your media encoded.
Audio seems to be limited to stereo currently for streaming.
Samsung's PC software for streaming is very, very basic and not well documented.
I currently use Tversity for streaming but only after I manually added a profile for Samsung that I found on Tversity's fourms. Works much better, but not perfect.
Samsung has been doing firmware upgraded on a regular bases and fix some areas but may breaks something else (Audio in ac3 or aac).
I do love the Netflix, Vudo apps. Watching instantly is great.
Botton-line, its a great blu-ray player at a budget price with some very nice features (Netflix, Vude, Blockbuster, etc) with a few features that are still maturing. Ask yourself, what do you want your blu-ray player to do and how much are you willing to pay for each feature. This player meets my needs at a price I feel is very good. I believe it will be a better value as the other features improve.
