1) No Replay/Skip-back button which seems to be a pretty standard feature on DVD players nowadays. I miss this button a lot.
2) No memory feature. When you stop a movie you have to start over as if you just loaded it in the player.
3) (2) becomes a very annoying problem if you pause movies frequently for breaks or doing chores around the house, which I do a lot. When you pause a movie it will only pause for about 5 minutes, then it will go to screen saver. After a few minutes of screen saver it will STOP the movie and when you come back you have to start the movie over and try to find where you were. This is a MAJOR annoyance!
4) It is missing DVD playback features like viewing different angles, etc.
It is my opinion that this player was released prematurely based on its feature set. However, Samsung did a great job on the Bluray compatibility & picture quality and the DVD upconversion quality. If you want a player for quality HiDef video and don't care about features this is a great player. However, if you want more features out of your player, you may want to hold out for later generation models.
If there were a lot of other players on the market right now that didn't have these same flaws, I would have rated this player much lower just based on features. However, I understand that Bluray is still in its infant stages of development and manufacturers are rushing products to market to compete (and hopefully win) with HD-DVD. Thus, I am not too upset with my investment in this model. But I also know that I will want to purchase another Bluray player before this one reaches the end of its life.
p.s. I have purchased several Bluray discs and also rented quite a few from Netflix and so far have not encountered one disc that this player will not play.
I've searched the web, especially the excellent bluray.com website, and have noticed that most Blu-ray players have problems, but Samsung stands out for poor support. Before purchasing this player, or any other player, check out the manufacturer's support and factor that into your decision to purchase.
It has about every kind of connector you could want, which is nice. Setup was completely painless. optical connection to receiver, hdmi to the tv, boom, done, works like a charm.
I was planning on having this player play my blu-ray disks, and my upconverting "regular" dvd player do the standard disks, but now after using this player for a while, I really don't feel I need the other one.
I like the on-screen menus, and remote. The usability is quite good imho. The only drawback is the one that everyone else mentions too and that is the general sluggishness that this machine has. It takes a good 30sec or so to do something simple like turn the machine on or eject a disk. And even things like fast forward seem sluggish. You get used to it and it's not a huge deal, but there it is, so I deduct a star for that.
