Overall, others give this:
The quality and features are fantastic. Love the compatibility with the Samsung TV and soundbar. Only one flaw, if you misplace the remote (as we often do), it can be impossible to get a DVD to start playing unless the DVD has some autoplay feature. Otherwise your only get to watch the menu screen as it mocks you. Being able to play from the DVD menu directly from the DVD player would be a helpful change.

Works great with lots of added features that turn any TV into a Smart TV. Only negative, ( I have found the same issue with all DVD players) I have to adjust the volume (turn it up quite a bit) when playing a move.
when i first got this i was happy with it... plays your dvds just fine, and if you only want to watch channels that samsung interfaces with it is good. today i wanted to add Indieflix to the channel lineup and found out that i cannot add a paid channel. roku does better for that... only i can't play dvd's on a roku. not happy. when i tried to add it i got the message that as of a certain date samsung will not allow you to add paid channels. guess i'll get an hdmi splitter so i can operate a roku AND the not so smart dvd player.... and another blankety blank remote!! i've been telling folks how wonderful this smart dvd player is but i'm going to have to eat my words.... bummer SAMSUNG
This Blu-Ray disc player is a big improvement over my previous Samsung Blu-Ray. Movies load super FAST & navigating the disc is fast. The remote is a major headache. It's too small & poorly designed for use. Buttons are small and crowded. It has a lot of great functions but physical use of this SMALL remote is difficult. None of the keys illuminate except a few that barely glow in the dark. This Samsung Blu-Ray / Smart Hub is on its way back for repair. Hopefully they'll be able to get it working properly. The Smart Hub is a big disappointment. I bought this primarily because reviews said it is was one of the rare units that allows dowloading & installing new Apps. Unfortunately, a lot of major Apps are missing and tech support told me none of what I want are planned and, in fact, nothing much new is expected to become available, for this model, even though it still sells in stores. I have 2 Samsung HDTV's & they're great. My first Samsung Blu-Ray had chronic problems & finally the disc drive quit working. My Samsung Home Theater is less than I expected from this company too. I bought it to have all the same brand products connected and it did make operating & using one remote easier. Unfortunately, the sound from 3 cheaper home theaters, from other manufacturers, had superior sound compared to my Samsung. Once again the disc drive quit working not long after the warranty ended. In summary, their HDTV's are fantastic. The disc players & home theater I have/had leave a lot to be desired.
great product plug it in follow on screen instructions and your set. small size makes it easy to put in video cabinet, great picture quality love the apps.
FRUSTRATING!!! ONLY FOUR BUTTONS ON ACTUAL DEVICE. WHEN REMOTE DOES NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY, DESPITE REPLACING THE BATTERIES AND TRYING TO RESET IT, THERE IS NO OTHER OPTION TO MANEUVER THE HOME SCREEN. WHEN THE REMOTE DOES NOT FUNCTION NOTHING CAN BE VIEWED. WHEN NOTHING CAN BE VIEWED IT IS POINTLESS TO HAVE THIS SO-CALLED "PLAYER". HOW STUPID.

I never owned a Blu-ray disc player, one reason, I did'nt think it was a big difference from any other disc player. I was wrong, why did it take me this long to purchase one, I wondered. This device is wonderful!! Now I'm hooked! I wish I can watch everything on TV thru my Blu-ray player! Plus, it connects to the internet, and I have the Netflix service, Pandora, YouTube, etc., I've worn a big hole in my couch because I've fallen and I can't get up! GIT IT!! I know that this Samsung brand Blu-ray Player has to be the best you can buy, or near it! Try one out!

I bought this unit refurbished. It was easy to set up. Samsung has plenty of apps available to make your streaming experience varied and interesting. The built in Wi fi allows for easy setup. The unit boots quickly. Disc playback is also fast. I have used this unit with 3D blu-rays and it works perfectly. You can update the software easily and the unit has a nice form factor. I am satisfied with the purchase. I have connected this to a Samsung HL61A 750 and have made this older model projection tv into a smart tv. The auto turn on function works with this model. Great Value for a middle of the line player.
