Top Customer Reviews
I bought this unit for it's internet ready features and found them sorely lacking. So much so I returned the unit. Specifically:
*The interface was rather slow to navigate.
*Adding "Apps" wasn't completely horrible, but it is more complicated than it could be. It's very time consuming to add multiple apps.
*It's Plex Media client is absolutely the worst I've used. If this is your reason for getting this player, DON'T!
*It had trouble playing native Bluray M2TS high definition movies over the a hard-wired gigabit network and via USB storage.
*DVD quality movies played fine, but navigation (FF, Rewind, etc.) was poor.
*The AllShare software works, but is clunky and leaves behind a bunch of files in the source folder(s) that shouldn't be necessary. AllShare doesn't allow you to create libraries, so each folder is basically it's own library. This is OK if all your media is one location, but that's often not the case for larger collections.
I could go on, but I'll stop there. Overall, I probably couldn't be more disappointed in this unit.
I decided to wait a couple of months before writing this review. Some of the good reviews came from buyers who had the player only a few days.
What I have: Samsung 55 inch screen. 30 Mbps internet connection. Player is wired to my router.
- I had to do the registration for Netflix several times.
- Netflix streaming sometimes freezes and re-buffers. This never happens with my Wii or my computers.
- I remove Sudoku to free memory for other apps but it keeps installing on its own.
- Fandango previews do not play smooth.
- Last Friday the Smart Hub service did not work at all. It said it needed to update and the installing screen stayed there frozen. Last failed attempt, I wait 10 hours (over night) for the "installing" to finish, but nothing. So I turned it off and went to the Samsung website to post a question that never even appeared, after 2 days. I cant remember where in the internet I read that someone with a similar problem had to reset the unit by pressing and holding down the stop button. Yep, that worked, but I needed to re-register Netflix and re-install and re-register other apps I had. A real pain in the b, specially when you are using your remote control to enter e-mails and passwords.
What does work and I love about it:
- It communicates well with my Samsung TV. I turn the player on and the TV turns on, or switches to the player.
- blu-rays look awesome.
- The different type of files it plays thru the USB ports look and sound amazing. I am using a 4gb thumb drive and an old 1TB hard drive in an external hard drive case with USB connection for my 1080 video files. WOW.
Watching blu-rays or upscaled DVDS still beat Netflix, Hulu, Vudu or Blockbuster streaming, but they are not too far behind. If the Smart service improves (I think it will), discs will eventually dissapear.
Despite this, I will stay loyal to Samsung and keep my BD-D5300.
UPDATE 4/1/2012 Going from 3 stars to 2. I am receiving message "you do not have enough memory to load application" when trying to use VUDU... WTF???? I restarted the unit (fun fun), I have a VUDU account and have used it with this player. I feel like throwing the remote at it...
I did read reviews on similar Blu-Ray players for other manufacturers, and discovered that they too have problems. This is what led me to send my player to Samsung, and not take a refund or a replacement from the seller. If the Samsung repair fixes it, I'll have a great little Blu-Ray player for a little over half the cost of a new one even if I did pay to ship it to Samsung. Why swap one problem unit for another one, from another manufacturer, that may have problems requiring repair or replacement?
In addition to better codec support, the ROM updates have added new content options for streaming from various internet channels.
I intended this as a secondary player in the bedroom to watch BD disks and stream from the myth box. It meets those requirements now. I wold not recommend this as your main BD player. It is underpowered (slooow menu navigation) and the menus are terrible. The streaming page looks like 20 tiny icons with 4 point text you have to get right up next to the screen to read. Netflix streaming is acceptable, but not great and that menu is also poorly designed. The remote control has tiny buttons and you'll need glasses to see any writing on it.
It does everything I wanted, but it's slow & ugly.
It can also stream from a MediaTomb server, but not with the default config.xml file. Find it at:[...]
