"Buyer Beware"1.0 starson by LCStace
Pros: The design is fairly stable and speakers are not cumbersome or intrusive. I really loved the IDEA of streaming Pandora.
Cons: This product has been a nightmare! The BR would not play over component video cables then the Ipod cradle would quit playing, locking up the BR player until the entire system was restarted.Tried to upload new firmware, now BR won't play ANYTHING!
Summary: We have had this product less than 2 weeks and have been working on it to exasperation. I am luckily going to resolve this problem shortly by returning the product to Best Buy and refusing to ever buy another Samsung product. This product did not deliver on ONE SINGLE ADVERTISED FEATURE. I am not a remarkably tech-savvy person but I am not functionally illiterate when it comes to setting up these out-of-the-box systems. Even the Samsung website was dysfunctional! When I tried to review the product that I had registered, I got an error.
There are inconveniences like the strange design of the BR player with the top buttons but mostly all I can say is we bought a lemon. This was a completely useless box of plastic and metal parts that DID NOT WORK.
