Well, i had waited for this player for some time. This is my initial review and I will follow it up after I get a little more time using the player. ============================================= My initial reviews are that this was definitely worth waiting for. The setup was a breeze and the user interface is extremely easy. The blu-ray player comes with a number of apps ready to go, but there are a whole number of apps you can download when you access the Samsung apps on the machine. The one app that is missing is the MLB.TV app. I contacted Samsung and was told that it will be available April 1 when the season starts. I'll have to wait to see. My only other gripe is that the browser is clunky and extremely slow. I am using a cable modem for my service, so I can say that it is the browser and not the service that is the cause. Other than those two flaws, I can say that everything else about the player is great. Starts fast and gets to the DVD fast as well. I hate sitting there waiting to get to that title screen. Using other apps such as Netflix and Hulu Plus are extremely simple and are available right on the home screen. Every other app I have tried has worked flawlessly. One other thing to add, and not a direct reflection of the player. The Samsung Smart view app no longer allows the streaming of media from your smart TV/Blu ray player to your phone. This would have been a very nice feature to have. The app says that this functionality has been removed due to content protection rules. This has not stopped Samsung from continuing to promote the functionality on the app store or on their website!

I purchased the BD-F7500 as a hoped-for key piece in the digital upgrade of my home; i.e., Wi-Fi router, BluRay, printer, and smartphone. I planned to use the BD as a Wi-Fi bridge to bring the Web and Movie services to my older HD TV (it has no Ethernet of Wi-Fi), and to mirror smartphone media through the BD to the TV. First, BD set-up was quick and easy and connecting to the Wi-Fi network a breeze. Downloading the installed apps was not quite as easy, but went well; however, unwanted apps linked to Samsungâ€™s business partners cannot be deleted, which restricts the amount of memory available for apps I may want to add later. The key feature of the Smart Hub is the Web Browser App, which I found to be highly unreliable. It is slow (clunky), its keyboard does not sync well with common search engines, and it seems confused by an external USB keyboard (but using an external USB mouse is great). Worst of all, the Browser App is highly crash-prone when streaming high-content video from typical Web sources, especially when I attempt to view content in full screen mode. (Yes, I checked the network connection, checked for software update, and reloaded the apps.) That said, when the modem to Wi-Fi to BD/Web browser to HD TV links are all working, its great entertainment. Today I watched 10,000 Japanese singing Ode to Joy in German. Awesome! Note: Smartphone is on preorder, so I have not yet tried mirroring.

Great Blu-ray player however drops WiFi
If it wasn't for WiFi loss this would be a 5 star. My Panasonic doesn't drop.
Outstanding player. Very short boot time. Easy access to apps and features. Picture quality is very good. 3D output is very good, as is the audio output. Nice case that is small and stylish. Plenty of audio output options.

Has all the features one can think about
from Mechanicsburg, PA
Enhances the video of a standard DVD. Also, streaming videos is wonderful. Apps like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant video, dailymotion etc all work fine. Apparently, Youtube crashed a couple of times

High quality but missing the mark on a basic feature
Bought this product to navigate the web and view shows on TV. But am hampered but not being able to use a keyboard with this unit, either wired or wireless. We are forced to use the cumbersome ridiculous remote control.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Mostly Pretty Good
I've had the BD-7500 for a week now and there's a lot to like about it. It load's fast and has snappy response times. Lot's of apps to access streaming services and they're flexible so that you can pick the ones you want. The design is sleek and clean and build quality feels solid. My one big complaint is that Samsung has sold out the bottom left of the home screen as "Recommended" apps. I didn't ask for, don't need, and don't want their recommendations and that space would be perfect for "My Favorites". Note: The browser is useless but no demerits from me for that. Why anyone would try to browse without a keyboard and mouse/touchscreen is beyond me.
All over good
Player has a good design and performs very well. I believe it is the best over all at a good price.
Good buy for the money
I updated the firmware when I first hooked it the player up to make sure it was up to date. The upgrade was easy. The ease of use and picture quality have been great.

I really really love my new SMART 3D blue ray disc player. This was my first time to watch a 3D Movie. We had purchased the Samsung 3D 55 inch TV and purchased this to go with it. Woww it truly was an amazing experience. The 3D parts so really that you felt like you were actually a part of the movie. If you are on the fence, jump off and buy this great piece of electronic....way to go Samsung!!!
The best choice
The BD-F7500 is an excellent Blu-ray player from Samsung with a very good operating system (simplified menus, Windows 8-like easy to follow boxes, fast disk loading, mkv/subtitles etc) at a very good price. The only con is the difficulty in web browsing using only the remote control. An external USB keyboard is essential, if the user wants to browse too much.
