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.

One of the few Plex compatible Blu Ray Players

By 

from MA

Pros

  • can read digital files from a flash drive
  • has both hardwired ethernet and wireless ports
  • plex compatible!

Cons

  • more expensive than newer models

Best Uses

    After an exhausting search for a Blu Ray player that is compatible with the Plex App, I found this one. I originally bought a newer model, but quickly found out that the Samsung smart devices which are Opera based are no longer compatible with Plex. Since most of my home entertainment library is Plex based this Blu Ray player was a perfect fit for my family. I also have a Samsung LCD TV so the device was compatible right out of the box without any configuration on my part. I was a little bit disappointed by how slow the built in internet browser was, but it certainly was not a game changer for me. All of the apps that I have tried so far (Netflix, Plex, Facebook) work very well and I have not had any issues. Although this particular model is more expensive than the newer model, if you are a Plex user I would highly recommend this player!

    DOES THE JOB BUT HAS SOME GLITCHES

    By 

    from Belleville, NJ, USA

    Pros

    • Inexpensive

    Cons

    • Did not meet expectations

    Best Uses

      It gets the jobe done but there are a few glitches. 1) A few of my dvd's won't play (and no software updates did not help) 2) Sleek top design on top my look cool but it makes push button usage very confusing 3) would be great iff there was a way to quicken the process of typing in information on apps for search etc. maybe there is a way to piggyback it off my laptop keyboard wirelessly?

      Product works very well with my Samsung 4k UHD TV

      from Fort Worth, TX, USA

      Pros

      • Bright display
      • Durable
      • Inexpensive
      • Lightweight

      Cons

      • no cable

      Best Uses

        I am very pleased with the easy setup and compatible functions with my TV and Samsung Sound bar and that it integrated very easy. The setup only took a few minutes from the time I removed it from the packaging. The only thing I was disappointed about was the fact it did not include the HDMI cable. I did purchase one with gold plated tips and it works well. Overall I would suggest to others it is worth the purchase and the price was great.

              Pros

              • Lightweight

              Cons

              • should have infrared sensor higher and larger.

              Best Uses

                I am very impressed with this Blu-ray player. SI I'm a cheapskate I do believe the price could come down 20%. But that's neither here nor there. Plenty of space for other apps to download as well as a decent selection to choose from. I do think the YouTube app could be more Interactive and user-friendly. Find it difficult to search for videos by typing. Maybe adding a voice recognition to the remote. Free million dollar idea Samsung you better run with it and if you don't cut me 1% of all profits created from that new upgrade at least give the shout out to the man who give you the brilliant idea. LOL actually a very nice Union altogether I have not had the opportunity yet to try a Blu-ray disc but if it is anything like any other Samsung product I have purchased it probably works wonderfully with excellent video quality.
