Rated 5 out of 5 by from My very 1st Samsung purchase Being my very 1st Samsung product purchase, I was a little nervous. I have more than 20 years of experience with Sony & Panasonic products. It was more of ‘stick to what you know best’ attitude. But I wanted to give other product ago. So I searched high & low for a good blu-ray player online. This player came up with overall good review on the product. Harvey Norman also had this player on sale online, click & collect at your local store was at ease. My 1st impression on unpacking this player was totally amazed by how it was packed. It felt like I was unpacking a brand new mobile phone. Then I got to the player & it is an attractive looking player. The controller was small & I personally prefer this as it felt comfortable in my hands. Setting up the player was easy & using it the 1st time was nothing but satisfaction. I tested this player with a movie ‘Superman vs Batman Dawn of Justice’ in 4k version; boy was I in for a treat. I also noticed that the player actually downloads & play you-tube content at much better speed, there was no buffering like my apple tv or my ipad. It may be because this happens to be a newer technology. If I must find a fault for this player, I would say the following; the controller can be a little small for people with large hands. Battery for the controller is not AA or AAA, but a thin disc shaped CR2032, which can be a little hard to find at shops & expensive. Unsure how long this tiny battery will last. There is no front display which many people would be used to seeing on their older players. Finally the curved shaped deck may not look great with your standard flat tv. I personally have no issues with this player & totally satisfied with my very 1st Samsung product purchase. I am also looking to upgrade to a new 65” tv. Who knows, it may just be Samsung!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This is a very nice player on first impressions it feels cheap but hooked up to my LG 65" 4K 770T TV it comes to life and the new curved design makes it look good sitting under the tv compared to a square box that they normally are and it would complement curved TVs even better playing standard DVDs it does a awesome job of up scaling them giving the picture more depth and a crisper look than other players but put a blu-ray disk in and watch the movie come to life Haven't hooked it up to my home theatre system yet but having it's own HDMI audio out it's going to make me feel like I am in the movie

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fast and top quality pic I received this player as a birthday gift last month and was impressed at how fast the interface is to respond to the remote. The picture quality is top notch and the upscale is good too. It has played ever file format I can throw at it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I bought a Samsung 65in 4K curved tv in May and decided to update my old bluray player as well, Samsung has been my brand of choice for years for Tv's & players. This player was a great match for my tv, it was easy to set up and is easy to use. My older dvd's look great with the upscaling on this unit. The only thing I don't like is the remote the buttons are not positioned very well for my liking.
