Let me get right to the point. This player has exceptional HD picture quality (I have not tested for 3D or UHD upconversion). Avatar (my reference movie for picture evaluation) almost literally jumped off the screen. These are some of its limitations: its construction is light weight; the audio jack pack consists only of an optical output (excluding HDMI); the manual does not indicate it has an automatic shut off after a period of inactivity (confirmed in my chat with technical assistance), the on board controls are located on the top right of the unit limiting access when installed in a cabinet. Set up is straight forward and the unit quickly connected to my wireless router. Excellent app package with all the major video applications included. I experienced difficulty with opening the Amazon Cloud Music player and Accuweather. Flixster works beautifully. On my first visit to the home page after completing set up, I could not access anything until I opened the player tray. After that, everything worked flawlessly. In response to those reviewers who say the remote does not have a player eject button, they are simply wrong. It's located right under the power button. You can spend a thousand dollars on a player, but I doubt you would notice any improvement in picture quality. On that score, this baby is absolutely first rate. I hope Samsung will add auto shut off in a future firmware update.

Web browser useless

I bought this player instead of one of the less expensive models just for the so-called "SmartHub" and the web browser features. There is some video content I want to watch on certain sites that don't provide an app, leaving a browser as the only option. It has been an exercise in futility. The browser is extremely basic and difficult to use. It's just too slow to be practical. There are also no enhancements like plug-ins (such as an ad blocker) and the settings are too basic. For example, if you turn off pop-ups, that also prevents links using the 'open in new window' or 'open in new frame' tags from opening the page at all. Blocking pop-ups nearly renders the browser useless and leaving pop-ups enabled makes it too cumbersome to use. Navigating to and closing all those windows is too cumbersome. It crashed several times on me as well. Even when I do finally get a video to play, it has yet to finish loading before stalling. It is incredibly slow too. My 5-year old MacBook Pro on the exact same wireless network is 10 times faster using Chrome, Firefox, or Safari on the exact same page. It's like the player is throttling the download or something. Totally useless. Then, I was hoping to find a alternative browser in the Samsung App store, such as Opera or Google Chrome. Not only does nothing exist, but when you go to the app store and perform a search and it finds no apps to fit the criteria, it still bombs you with a bunch of other content, such as YouTube videos, that contain the name in your search string. This is bad interface design at its finest. If I'm IN the app store, I'm looking for apps, NOT videos on YouTube. The bottom line is that this is supposed to be a internet-centric player but if you don't want to use the limited content Samsung provides through their app partnerships, you will be underwhelmed. For me, I paid a $60.00 premium over another Samsung Blu-Ray player just to get the browser, and it turned out to be so limited and dysfunctional that it's virtually useless. I'm very disappointed.

              The minute I click the power button, it takes over the TV, and is ready to go. I bought it because of the 3D capabilities, and it worked perfectly right from the beginning. It's easy to operate, and I think it was a great buy. I do have reservations with the 3D glasses. They worked great, but it took a moment to realize that there was no real on/off switch--I had to reinsert the little plastic tab that allows the battery to make contact.

                  No problem connecting with Acorn TV, which was our main goal. Same with Netflix and Amazon. Easy navigation using the Home button on remote. One call to support was concerning how to start photo slide show in the Multimedia section using a flash drive. That issue was resolved.
