"Worked great right out of the box! Family Xmas gift!"5.0 starson by rl11148
Pros: It worked great right out of the box. It was so easy to set up that I didn't even need the manual! It made all of my standaard DVDs look great and the Blu Ray movies I rented from redbox were spectacular. Connecting to wifi, youtube was easy!
Cons: The initial setup of internet aps were difficult for me having to use the remote control as a keyboard. The web interface is great for surfing but not so great to do posts or searches. I had to purchase the HDMI cable seperately. The exit music yikes
Summary: I went to walmart on Christmas eve hoping to find a gift to suit my family for this year and this really fit the bill. I had three different blu ray players in my hand, the magnavox, the vizio then finally got the samsung. The thing that sold me was it was wifi ready and had the wifi adapter included. The fact that I was able to get the player and the HDMI cable $60 off was a huge plus given that it was xmas eve. While I was in line, I had noticed two blu ray players that had been returned and they were the two that I had my hands on originally. The gentlemen in front of me complimented me on my purchase and informed me that "you get what you pay for" with regard to blu ray players and paying the extra money for a samsung blu ray player is worth it. He had bragged that his sony PS3 was actually a better deal given it's ability to stream better from the web and it's ability to do dynamic updates. But when I got this blue ray player connected to wifi, it immediately went to work downloading updates for it. I was really surprized how good the resolution was for YouTube! My grand daughter watched a monster high video on it and it was awesome quality. Samsung helpted to save christmas. Thanks
