First, there is no indicator on the front to know if the unit is powered on or off. The only Power light is on top, which you can only see standing above the player. Not smart. Maybe I'll mount a mirror up there!
Next, I looked in vain for an on screen display of play time on a DVD, like minutes into the movie and minutes remaining. None to be found. My previous players all had that feature.
Also, there are apparently some feature that can only be used with a Samsung TV. There is a "123" button on the remote, for example, that seems to have no function in my setup. Too bad other TV's can't take advantage of whatever those special features are.
Finally: As I said, it's my first UHD player. HDMI2 cable is not just recommended...its mandatory for a UHD TV. Hooking it up with my old HDMI cable resulted in a "no input detected" message on my TV. GIven that, including an HDMI2 cable would have been nice for those wanting to unpack it and immediatley hook it up.
Still, it worked out of the box, was easy to set up and delivers UHD resolution so I can't ding it more than one star. If I find other issue I'll revisit this review.
Update 1: To see the time into or remaining on a DVD, hit the Pause/Resume button. That calls up a banner that takes up about 1/4 of the top of the screen, but eventually times out.
I wanted to address a couple issues brought up in the only other review for this unit. I can see the power light from the front at eye level easily its red when off green when on and second is info for the movie can be seen by hitting the tools button on the remote and selecting information from the top of the list. It shows all the timers also shows every bit of info for audio and video from the disk.
The UI on this player is great and I found it to be very intuitive.
One thing that I didn't notice in specs and instruction was that DivX codec is not supported, even if DivX is listed in the table of supported file formats.
I have library of movies ripped to AVI format and have to go back and change them to MP4. Which is a good thing - the sound and picture is much better. I knew, eventually will have to update files to newer format, this DVD player was my motivator. LOL
Hopefully I don't have to change the format for few year as I am sure new one will come around.
Update - after using a week, it is easy to setup, can create shortcuts to main screen. When watching movies from DLNA, player remembers where watching stopped and can resume next time it is turned on - love it option as it was not available on any other DVD player.
