Overall, others give this:
This is a good device overall. I wish there were more apps to watch shows with that didn't cost money. It also randomly disconnects from the Internet or shuts itself off in Theodore of a show.
This player works fine for blurays and DVD'S but streaming is a pain. It loses the WiFi connection all the time. I have to turn it off and back on. I believe the problem is with connecting to Samsung hub not my WiFi because I have a Roku and a Firestick and neither of them lose connection.
I love this product because it's exactly what I needed I link my phone , youtube, and Netflix to it and use it as a smart hub in my bedroom I love Samsung and this player
Right from the beginning...this Blu-Ray player has been nothing but outstanding..the movie quality...right down to the sleek design and front USB port... I would purchase this Item again....as a matter of fact I did...and sent one as a present ...are they happy or what...they can't say enough about it...! If you need built-in WiFi...look no further...it's in there...and performance is great... If you want to hook it up (hard-wired) to the net...you can...lots of options people.. Thanks Samsung
It worked great for the first year. Loved being able to stream movies through Netflix and Amazon. Then, It wont update, will connect to the Wireless Router, but not the internet. Save yourself the headache.

This blu ray player works great, It hooks up to your wireless router without an adapter, unlike their earlier models. It can be used with an Ethernet cable, also. It has a decent amount of app's and will play mp3's and show pictures and videos from a USB flash drive.
Don't want to try any other. Samsung has been so good to me. I don't know that I will go anywhere else. Love you Dudes!
As soon as I turn on my system, the television automatically turns on and the DVD is ready to play. Another great feature is the ability to synchronize all Samsung products to this player. I stream movies, internet, etc. from my tablet to my television via the DVD player. It's awesome!
I use my bluray mainly to stream. I love that it connects to my Netflix, Hulu and Amazon accounts. Not having access to good cable and no DVR, I use my BluRay to catch up on TV I have missed plus to stream the excellent series' that Netflix, Hulu and Amazon offer. I'm not techie but this was simple to set up and use. I have a Samsung TV that is not SMART, but it might as well be when I have this SMART BluRay connected. I love it! The only negatives have more to do with the apps and not the BluRay. The Hulu app is extremely clunky but still usueable. I don't care for the vTuner App either. I just listen online because I have never gotten it to work the way I want it to. The online version is only marginally better. I'm such a nontechie that I can't even check the box below for Built-In speakers because I don't even know if my BluRay has built in speakers. If it does, they work great. :)
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
