This review is from: Samsung BD-E5700 WiFi Blu-ray Disc Player (Black) (Electronics)
The Good: Just hooked this up. I didn't have to consult the manual- wired it to the internet, it had no problems connecting. The remote has shortcut buttons so I used those to set up the rest of the things I want like pandora and netflix. There is this thing called smarthub which is the hub for all the 'apps' and movie streaming stuff. The netflix app has a search function, which is nice. I thought the small size was a plus, not a negative like the first reviewer. Also looks aren't an issue for me- not when we have most of our appliances sitting on a too small entertainment stand with wires everywhere, lol.
It is surprisingly slow connecting to applications (surprising b/c its new). I would give it five stars if it had Amazon instant video access but it doesn't:( It's only been a couple days but every time I turn it on, it decides to download & install and update after I tell it to go to netflix or pandora. I don't know if this is b/c its new- I hope that it's not going to need to download something every time I try to use an app.
I will come back in a few months and add to the review when I've had a chance to get to know the dvd-player better. I've been reading reviews on other blu-ray players and it really sounds like they all suck....esp the the particular ones that have pandora, netflix AND Amazon- which is what I really wanted. So I'll keep trying this one because honestly, it sounds like the lesser of many evils.

I agree with all you said. I just bought this same model from Sams for 98 bucks and LOVE IT. It's so easy to hook up and use (as long as you have wireless internet) I also love that it is small and light.
