I will admit I have only had this device for a very short time, however, I really haven't had any issue with it yet. It was VERY easy to set up. Plug in to tv, plug into wired network, plug in power. The initial set up I think may have taken all of 10 minutes and that included unboxing it. It plays blue ray disks fine. The interface is easy to understand. Netflix, Pandora and youtube are built in apps. So is DLNA support. Allshare is a DLNA app you can download and install on your PC and share multimedia files with your blu ray player. Which, I have done and works. The Allshare is a bit complicated, but it works. The only drawbacks I have found so far is that not only is wireless not included, it doesn't appear as though it can even be added. I also don't think apps that are not included in the 'out of the box' installation can be installed. Lastly, the remote has an option on it to power on and off the TV that it's connected too, but only if it's a Samsung. OTOH, if I had REALLY wanted any of that, I'd have bought a more expensive one. So for the price, it's worth it.

Nice when it works
Nice, but if power blinks the wifi password is lost. This is a pain.Would recommend with caution.

Good low end unit
About Me Power User
I bought this unit to replace a 4 year old Samsung Blu-Ray that was having problems streaming Netflix in HD. The firmware was still being updated but it just wasn't cutting it. The 5100 unit solved the streaming issue and the newer interface is great. I use the unit almost totally for Pandora and Netflix so didn't have a problem using the hard wired connection to get the best streaming results. The only drawback for me was the coax audio connection since I use a separate audio output for Pandora which only accepts analog audio input. A couple of standard RCA stereo connectors would have been nice.All in all, a nice unit for a minimum investment.
This is a great blu-ray player, which plays perfectly and is offered at an affordable price!
Very Good Resolution

Thought I was buying a Blue Ray Player with wireless internet for Netflix, etc.. but upon arrival unit requires a wired connection to a router for internet. Otherwise a pretty good player.

Great Blu-ray Player, Great Value
I wanted to find a reliable Blu-ray player with a USB port for updates and internet connectivity. I researched all of the available players in my budget category and decided to purchase this one. We have many Samsung TVs and other devices at our home and our rental property too. All have given us zero problems and have performed perfectly. This player offers great video and fully integrates with all of the newer Samsung products with their brand-specific network. I am very happy with this purchase.
I have had this for a short time now I love the way it makes ordinary dvd's look on tv. Lately though I have been having trouble with the remote. Some controls don't want to work all the time. It is very picky on when it wants to work.
from GREEN BAY, WI
Very good player and good price/ Like blu ray feature.Had about a month.
I bought this as a second unit for my bedroom but after setting it up and using it I changed my mind and moved it to my family room. I like that it loads faster than my 1 year old Panasonic and the extra features it has like Pandora and YouTube. I highly recommend this unit to anyone in the market for a new Blu-Ray player. This is not my first Samsung product and by all means want be my last. Great products and great company.
