    Wish that I had bought this system first. Now I had purchased the competitors system ,because I had their tv and it was giving me grief. I could not tell if it was on or off and it would not come on unless I unpluged it from the wall and plugged it back in, no green light to tell if it was on or off. I purchased the warranty (it was still under the original warranty. Returned it back to the store no hassle ,they said go see if there was any other that I would like to exchange it for.Spoke to the salesman and he recommended the one that he would buy. I bought that one. I got the player with built in wifi wow. . I missed my cooking channels ,it had a series of cooking channels, the best part is that it is easy set up and wow all the other channels (their are so many free choices forget about the pay ones(they are low cost on this one) since I am putting myself on a budget I'm paying off my bills. I liked this so much that once my daughter moved in I went out and bought her one for her room. Helped her have a peaceful surgical recovery(she could not believe that she didn't need cable. Once we fix up our basement we will get the same unit for our basement. Thanks Best Buy for continually bringing in up to date electronics and having good ,friendly ,helpful staff members. Sincerely, Ms. Grateful

    I've used the Google Chrome connected to my TV works great with my tablet I stream many Internet channels straight to my TV with no wires unlike all the other you have to run a cable of some type to connect with your TV. I have not used all the features it has but I like it a lot better than roku this gives me more options of what I want to watch. As for the Samsung blu ray player it to is a must have I already own one besides the great picture and sound you get from your DVD movies it's loaded with Internet channels although you do need a hdmi cable to connect. It does have a feature that is called screen mirroring that works with Samsung tablets that have the same feature and maybe others I'm not sure since I only own Samsung. It will show on the TV exactly what's on the screen of the tablet. I use it for videos that are not compatible with the chrome. cast yet.when you add a Samsung tv and a Samsung tablet and they are all sync uped it's amazing how well they work together it's as good as a smart TV if not better I think for not actually owning one This is supposed to be a review of the blue Ray player so read on.this I thought might help someone here a little bit of how it will work together with a complete entertainment center short of a sound system since there are so many options with the right ones you will only use one remote control and your tablet if you decide to incorporate that. I hope this helps someone.

    Great Player

    Very pleased with this purchase, which replaces an 8 yr old 1st generation player with limited internet offerings and a sticky disk drawer. Unit set-up was a breeze and the player offers more smart TV options than anyone could possible need, including Netflix, Hula +, YouTube, and Amazon Prime. All of them stream flawlessly (and in 5.1 sound for some Amazon selections) from my router across the room. Best part is that I have over 600 digital HD movies stored on a 4 TB hard drive connected to my router (NAS). This player recognizes that drive thru my wi-fi and plays all those movies - mostly in MKV, but I haven't yet encountered a format it won't play - like my own personal Netflix for anyone in my household. I imagine it would play my 800 GB music library the same way, tho I haven't tried that yet. The only drawbacks: 1) Absolutely no lights on the unit so one can't tell if it's on or off without firing up the TV. 2) A unit with this many modern features should offer a gigabit wi-fi AC connection. That option on my home network does not appear as a choice in the set-up menu. Aside from those minor quibbles. this is a great player at 1/3 the size and 1/2 the price I paid for my 8 yr old unit. Buy with confidence.

    I own a 55" Samsung T.V. but it unfortunately it came out to market about 4-5 years too early to be Smart capable. Well with this BluRay Player I just wanted a regular one. So I opted to go the cheaper route and get a refurbished one. Well Ha Ha! I guess the jokes on them No but Seriously all jokes aside this thing made my T.V. SMART Capable. Which is just Awesome because now I can get All the Streaming content that I want. So THANK YOU!!! Bestbuy this has made my Relaxing in front of the television so much more enjoyable! Oh Yeah it being "refurbished" You or I wouldn't have ever known if it wasn't sold that way. So whomever refurbished it my hats off to you✌

    This is a nice little Blu-ray player that I am using to replace my PS3, which used to be in our bedroom (It's been moved to the family room so the kids can use it more and stay out of our room :). It's small, very easy to use, especially compared to the PS3 Blu-ray and basically has turned our older LCD TV into a "Smart TV". It was easy to set up and we can stream media from our smart phones thru it to the TV but usually have the laptop or portable hard drive hooked up to it which allows us to use our 55" flat panel "dumb" TV as a Smart TV. Awesome little box has opened up many new possibilities for entertainment. Now, if we want to watch TCM, HBOgo, Hulu, Net-Flix, etc, we just run it thru this Blu-ray player and ...BOOM, we're at the movies on the big screen! There's plenty of similar devices and I'm sure many of them are excellent but for <$80 the wife & I have a "smart" TV & a small Blu-ray player that's easy to use and has a great picture. You can also hook up to your network router, an HDMI or WiFi device and external hard drive to tap into load of movies, pictures or whatever you could want to see! Lots of bang for the buck in this nice Samsung unit.

    One of my old Blu-ray players died on me, after MANY years of service. Went to Best Buy in Menifee to take a look at a Samsung Blu-ray BVD player I had seen $69.95. Read the packaging and it did everything I needed & wanted. It takes up very little space, yet gives a fantastic quality picture. The small manual was easy to read & follow the instructions. It took only 10 minutes to install (including connecting the HDMI cable & adding it to my home wireless network. Add in another 10 minutes and 10 smart app streaming services were set up and ready to go. I purchased a Samsung model because I have encountered very few issues with any of their products. Plus I wanted to ensure it would be fully compatible with my large, then big screen TV & other Samsung components. Lastly it comes with a fairly small remote control that works the whole system so much better than my cable remote or the large screen TV remote. Best most economical purchase I've every made! And the BBuy Menifee, California has a crew of professional managers & sales associates. I highly recommend that particular store.

    We put a second TV up in the front room for when we have the in-laws over so that they wouldn't have to tackle the stairway at the house, and we decided to get a BlueRay player for there too. When I opened the box, the small size of the player gave me pause for a bit, but, I'm not disappointed, the setup was easy and intuitive, there are a ton of features built into a small package, and there's not been any issues at all from the unit. The most surprising thing was the wireless connectivity, generally, I'm the type of person who prefers wired over wireless connections, but, the wireless in this player doesn't seem to have the problems with staying connected and/or low connection speeds that I've seen in some other "built-in" wireless systems. All in all, this is a good player and it's much cheaper than the expensive "other name brand" BlueRay payer I purchased a while back for the other TV.

    VERY GOOD BLURAY PLAYER

    After updating firmware to v. 1005 on 4/13/15, Netflix is working fine. Apps include Amazon, but not HBO Go, although maybe future updates will add HBO. Comes with HDMI cable and AAA batteries. USB on front. HDMI, digital audio out, Ethernet on back. Yes, it has WiFi and Ethernet. Picture is great. Plays BluRay, DVD, CD, and audio CDs. Requires remote (included) to operate, but works with Samsung TV remote, so you don't need multiple remotes. Updating firmware takes <2 min online with FiOS 25/25 internet. Detects my wifi network from the other side of the house with chimney in between, so I think it has a good wifi receiver. Does not have a power light, but not a major issue. You will certainly know when it's off because there will be no picture on the screen. Don't read reviews prior to firmware v. 1005 on this machine. It's a very good BD player at a very good price.

    Some people will tell you that Sony is the best BluRay player around. I disagree. For the BluRay portion, it might have an edge, but overall, and software wise, I can't get behind the Sony player. I had one, and hated it. Netflix would constantly pause and buffer, Amazon Prime wouldn't even play movies, or shows. It would always start and then say "Insufficient Bandwidth", which was extremely annoying knowing that I had 200mbs download speed for internet and a blazing fast WiFi router. The Samsung, works great, everything I use it for it excels. Mostly my wife and I just stream Netflix or Amazon, but also plays BluRays great. I would definitely recommend.

    No compatibility problems with my Sonos Play-bar

    I purchased this to replace a Blu-ray player with an integrated Surround Sound system. As an engineer, I am fairly savvy, technology-wise, and could not successfully get my old Blu-ray surround sound system to play through my new Sonos Play-bar. My son, who is also very savvy, could not get it to work either. In frustration, I donated my old Blu-ray player and all of its surround sound components to the Salvation Army, resisting the strong urge to give it the same treatment as the problem-riddled office printer in the movie "Office Space". I then went to Best Buy and purchased this simple yet good quality stand-alone Blu-ray player. It was simple to operate and it installed perfectly the first time. I can now easily switch between a Blu-ray recording and live TV without any compatibility problems with my Sonos Playbar, which I absolutely love.

    I needed a Blu-Ray Player to replace one that I had had for years. I don't use all of the other bells and whistles that come with it, but it's good to know they are there is I want to have more fun with it. I was a little disappointed that it doesn't have a digital display since without it I can't actually tell whether or not it is on or the time left in my movie. But that is by design, not a flaw, and most on the market these days don't have it. That being said, it is small, black and sleek, and not an eye sore. It also saves space by my TV. I haven't had it for years, but it's making a good first impression so far. I would recommend someone else looing for a no-frills DVD / Blu-Ray player consider this one as well.

    This product is "Fantastic!" I connected it without manual, came packaged direct from manufacturer...has a decent selection of "Streaming" channels and is small, compact yet full of modern features. I exchanged another item for this one, and I am very satisfied thanks to Izzy at the Bay Parkway, Brooklyn NY store whom helped me pick it out! In addition, shopping in the store, if you have time is wonderful....kind of makes you feel like a Kid in a Candy Store :). All the staff are helpful and pleasant! This product is just THE BEST 4 THE PRICE!

    I was recently looking for a BD/DVD player for my young daughter's room that wasn't expensive but it would be reliable. Luckily for me this was on sale. Besides playing BD and DVD disks it also has all the basic built in apps that provide video streaming (Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, Amazon, etc). One of the features i found is how efficient that Wi-Fi works. I have set up a WI-Fi extender in the hallway about 40 feet from the room where this is located and it does picks up the signal without any problem. This item would make a great addition to anyone not looking to spend money on a new smart TV but wants that ability to stream online media, just make sure you pick a HDMI cable before you get home. Highly recommended.

    Netflix now works

    Brainwave

    After updating firmware to v.1005 on 4/13/15, Netflix works fine. (Update took <2 min with internet via FIOS 25/25 ) Need to reset network after update. Picture is excellent. This player has WiFi and Ethernet. USB on front. Digital audio on back. HDMI out. Does not have HBO Go app yet (maybe they will add it), but does have Amazon. J5700 (2015 model) is improved over F5700 (2014 model). Front is curved. No power light, but it is pretty obvious when it is on/off. So far I am very pleased.

    I live in a small apartment. so size matters! This nifty little Blu-Ray player with streaming built in is perfect if you have limited space or even if you don't! It is light weight and easy to install. You can watch your favorite Blu-Ray discs or surf the web at an affordable price. I have a Samsung TV and now this Samsung player and I love the quality of their products. Once you start watching movies in Blu-Ray you will really notice the difference in the quality of the picture. I would recommend Samsung products to anyone thinking of buying a TV or any electronic product!

    I bought one of these units from an online vendor in Dec. 2016 so I could access streaming services (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon). It was so glitchy that it was impossible to make a successful connection to the services (even after the available firmware update). I couldn't believe that Samsung would release such a defective product and was so disgusted that I packed it in a box and reinstalled my old Blu-Ray player. This December, I decided to check for a new firmware update. Lo and behold, all of the kinks were worked out and everything connected just fine. I am now happy with it and bought another one for a second TV in another room.

    Fast Loading, Fast Navigation

    I was always frustrated with Blu-ray players because they were slow to load the disc, and slow to navigate menus. Also locked out the ability to skip previews, FBI warnings etc. I bought this unit for the UHD capability. It is very good for that. But the pleasant surprise was that it is much faster to load discs and to navigate. Most preliminary items can be skipped. I'm not sure if that capability is part of the UHD spec, or is unique to Samsung models.

    Not much of a review but..... Who knew you'd still need to play dvd's once in a while? But, there I was with several discs from some of my favorite TV shows that amazon and netflix don't carry so down to best buy to get a disc player. First I'm a Samsung fan, tv's, phones and now dvd players. The unit I picked up was perfectly acceptable, It performed it's intended functions without a problem and was very easy to set up. For this reason 5 stars, but if you're looking for bells and whistles go elsewhere.

    This is so far a very good player when it works. A couple times it locked up but unplugging it and waiting a few minutes and plug it in and it plays like a champ. The price was a very good price compared to my first player which I bought when Blu-ray movies first came out. This is a welcome addition and works well except the couple of times I had a problem. I like the ability to access Netflix, YouTube and other apps plus ability to update thru WiFi. For the price it’s a great buy to me and a great player for me. One day I’ll maybe update to 4K but this is fine for now.
