OK, this is a review on a product I just bought, so this is subject to being revised and revisited. Firstly, I'm impressed with the small size of this player. My DVD player completely dwarfs the BD-E5700. The BD-E5700 has a sleek appearance and uncluttered front panel. Setup was easy and I was pretty amazed with the apps that can be run FROM this device. The WIFI connection works flawlessly. Also, it recognized my SeaGate networked hard drive instantly so now I can fully utilize the features on THAT device (which sits in another room). The BD-E5700 plays my Blu-Ray discs perfectly. I ran the firmware update and it worked flawlessly, so I know I have the latest firmware. This player and media center really blew me away with the features and the excellent interface (many of which were not listed on the box), and ease of use. GET IT!!!!

THE DEVICE IS EASY TI SETUP , BUT IT UPDATES SO OFTEN THAT IT IS HARD TO ENJOY USING THE APPS, I ENJOY YOUTUBE , I AM HAVING DIFFICULTY LOGGING INTO MY PERSONAL ACCOUNT ON YOUTUBE, NO OPTION IS GIVEN, THIS IS NOT A GOOD FEATURE IN AN APP. I HAD A PROBLEM UPDATING IN MY BEDROOM , I MOVED THE DEVICE INTO THE ROOM WITH THE ROUTER AND IT UPDATED IMMEDIATELY. I HAVE a laptop computer IN THE BEDROOM AND IT RECEIVES THE SIGNAL FROM THE ROUTER WITH NO PROBLEM. I PURCHASED THIS PRODUCT FOR MY BEDROOM AND I AM HOPING THAT THERE ISN'T A PROBLEM WITH THE ROUTER RANGE. THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE DETAILED INSTRUCTION MANUALS WITH THIS PRODUCT. NO CORDS OR WIRES COME WITH THIS PRODUCT, THE STORE YOU PURCHASE FROM SHOULD INFORM YOU OF THIS SO THAT YOU WILL HAVE ALL YOU NEED TO INSTALL WHEN YOU GET THE PRODUCT HOME.

Can't Download Additional Apps
It comes with Netflix, YouTube & Pandora already on it but there's no way to add any of the additional 131 apps the website lists as compatible with this device. Within seconds of powering it on after I hooked it up I was presented with a firmware update that installed successfully, it seems to me that if I have a network connection that downloaded & installed a firmware update in less than 2 minutes there should be a way to add other apps like Hulu and many others I'd prefer.
I got this particular player because I only needed a blu ray player and did not need the wireless since I don't uses netflix and other apps with the player. I have my TV for that. So I needed a basic player. This was the exact model I wanted. It works well. And it does exactly what I need. You will need an ethernet cord to use the apps on this model so be aware...no blutooth.
Terrible blu ray player
from Chicago, IL, USA
I bought two of these blu ray players and within 6 months I've already had to send both of them in for repair because they wouldn't my play blu rays. I don't play blu rays that often so i was shocked when it quick working. So, when I sent my first one in to get fixed I started using my second and within a week it quit playing blu rays again. Very annoying. Samsung is usually a great brand my home entertainment system is nothing but samsung. But after having these problems with these blu ray players I will be looking for another brand for my blu ray and home entertainment needs.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We have bern using this product for 4 months now. We are very happy with it and use it daily. I can not say that for other players we have owned. It is fast & easy to use. It looks good. Great design.

I love my new Samsung Blu Ray player. The only drawback that I have found is that I can't get Amazon Instant Videos. It is easy to use and compact. Great product for the value.

Easy to setup, and operate...reliable, very good picture quality. Very happy with this blue ray player
Basic functions, excellent quality
from New York, NY, USA
I was looking for just a simple Blu Ray player to compliment my 39 inch Samsung TV. This works perfectly. Didn't require any internet connectivity for streaming, have a Ruku for that. This works flawlessly. Easy setup, blu-rays and dvds look sharp. Great price. Very happy.

When I am ready to use the player, each & every time, it loses it's mind. No pic, nothing! Each time my son comes to visit, he resets it and it works! When he's gone, I do the same thing he does and I have no luck. Also, I can find no help on your website. I am so very sorry I got this. It is extreme frustration. I'll hope to never buy anything with the Samsung name on it!
