    I think the player seems good, the hand control seems a little cheap like the push buttons wont last.

    I guess I was falling behind times as I tried to play a HD movie in an old player. After reviewing what was offered at BestBuy and having a Samsung TV I decided to go with this one. I like that it is very slim line, that the remote is close to what controls the tv so I don't have to learn too many new buttons (helpful in a dark room).

    Admittedly, I probably would not have purchased this had I not gotten it at Black Friday pricing. It works fantastic with my Samsung TV. The remote takes a little getting used to but is fine. Only complaint I would have is the front buttons are a little hard to see when room isn't bright.

    So far I have only used my new blu Ray a few times. I like the way the remote is pretty much short and simple as far as it only having a few buttons. I don't like remote controls that obtain a bunch of buttons that don't make any sense. Anyhow the graphics are amazing!!!!

    Does the job well

    It's a simple, sleek design that does the job well. I like how the CDs show the list of songs on TV. The buttons don't actually push in, so I guess they can't physically break, but it plays games with my mind about weather I pushed the button or not. For a split second, I always think I need to push it again, but I never do.

    Good 4K player for the price

    Works well playing 4K discs and also up-converting blu ray movies. Good features for the money. Can control the player with my Sony TV remote. Kinda miss a front display, but you can easily bring up disc info pressing pause on the remote. Remote is VERY basic. When setting the TV control buttons on the remote to control a non Samsung TV, I found the instructions in the manual very confusing. The manual shows the numbers 1-0 in the illustration, but what you can't see is the button text under the number. Additionally the example does not specify the button name for the numbers. I was bringing up the numbers using the 123 button and that just did not work. To help anyone else that is having a problem, this is the correct way to do it. Using Remote Control Buttons to Enter TV Codes: 1. Press and hold the (TV Power) button. 2. While holding the (TV Power) button, press the buttons on the remote that correspond to a two-digit TV Code from TV list. Use the key below as a guide for the numbers. 123 button = 1 DISC MENU button = 2 POP UP button = 3 UP = 4 LEFT = 5 RIGHT = 6 DOWN = 7 RETURN = 8 HOME = 9 TOOLS = 0 For example: To enter code 01, while holding down the TV power button, press the TOOLS button for 0 and then press the 123 button for 1. I did call Samsung support, and they were very helpful.

    Lousy Remote! Great Picture!

    For $100 this was a great deal refurbed. Great picture but the remote is the worst remote I ever owned. First off it uses CR2520 batteries so no rechargables. Second it stops working til I R&R the battery then works only for a while and I just use the buttons on the front for playing but can't use it for finding internet YouTube or other apps must have a functioning remote I see no other complaints here about this remote so I'll try replacing the battery next to see if that helps before complaining to Samsung for a new remote. Just got a replacement sound bar from VIZIO that kept disconnecting from the remotes after 5 minutes!

    Love this UHD BluRay/Streaming Player

    First, the sleek design looks great in our media cabinet. This player is easy to set up & in just a couple minutes we were streaming Netflix. Love the ability to download a variety of apps like Hulu, Amazon, WatchESPN, weather, Youtube and a bunch more. UHD picture looks great steaming or playing a BluRay. The remote is small, but I like that & it was pretty easy to program it to my tv. @@@@@@@@ Does not have backlit buttons). Overall, we're very happy w/ this purchase!

    Technology overload

    My grandson said I needed to buy a blu ray dvd player because I have a 4k Samsung TV. So, ok we did. If you have been raised on the modern technology it's probably a no brainer. But, for 2 70+ year olds, it's an exercise in finding out how stupid we are. Did finally get it set up & plays the dvds fine. Only issue I see is that the IR "eye" is under the power button & the remote control is an inferior tool. I would recommend the unit to a friend IF they were techno savvy.

    Basic 4K UHD Blu-ray Player

    As I was hooking up to a LG 4K UHD LED TV, I had to manually set the HDMI input on the TV to accept a 4K signal. I found the remote control design to be too streamlined for my tastes. It took a while for me to figure out what the user manual intended in order to program the remote to operate the LG TV. It would have helped if Samsung had superimposed the numerical button layout over an outline image of the remote control. As there is no dedicated subtitle button, if you don't select that option on the 4K or Blu-ray disc before hitting play, you have to open a drop down menu to make the selection. If you rewind or go forward, a banner persists across the top of the screen for longer than necessary. As I've now lived with the player for a month now, I've found 4K images to be less contrasty compared to Blu-ray. I don't know whether to attribute this to the digital transfer process for the two types of discs or the greater range of 4K, but it seems that everything is lurking in shadows for dimly-lit scenes. I would be hard pressed to say whether I was watching a 4K or Blu-ray disc on the Samsung or a Blu-ray on a ordinary Blu-ray player. Again, is this a result of the digital transfer or the up-scaling performed by my LG TV itself? The M8500 unit was able to resolve playback issues that I was having with my "Manchester by the Sea" Blu-ray on my older Sony unit which was exhibiting flickering (end of Chapter 8 and beginning of Chapter 9) and background noise (Chapter 12). It appears that the increased resolution on 4K discs has left little room for extra features hence the inclusion of a Blu-ray disc. For viewing still gallery features on the Blu-ray, the M8500 remote does not provide a true next or previous button which makes maneuvering around rather clumsy. It seems I'm better off just using my older Blu-ray player when viewing these special features. I've encountered occasional glitches when I've gone backwards a few seconds during playback to replay a scene where the Samsung seems to hang up when I hit play again, but it seems to resolve itself if I go backwards a little further. I don't know whether this is the type of glitchy performance encountered by reviewers of the previous generation of Samsung 4K players.
