"Very disappointing unit"1.5 starson by BigRobC
Pros: Price, regular DVD play
Cons: Blu-ray DVD play, slow load time, Samsung technical Support
Summary: This unit does a good job playing regular DVD's. The picture and sound are crisp and clear. Blu-ray DVD play is a different story. The unit skips, pauses, and blanks out at various times. Samsung technical support recommended a firmware update but I had already installed the latest update, which by the way takes approximately an hour via LAN. Tech support then stated that they were aware of a problem with the unit playing new releases but one of the 3 movies I was trying to play was not a new release. They were unable to tell when I could expect the next firmware update. I have only had the unit for 10 days and needless to say I am very disappointed. I would not recommend this unit unless you are only interested in playing regular DVD's. Samsung may eventually release a firmware update to enable the unit to play properly but that's not something I am willing to pay now and wait for.
