Customer Review

I love that I can watch netflix or switch to a movie, stream Pandora, use Vudu, and look at pictures with this blu ray player, the biggest downside is that it freezes. A lot. We had to put this on its own power strip so that we could reset it without turning everything else off. It has network issues that cause the wifi to just suddenly stop working on a pretty regular basis. I've never had it freeze while watching a blu ray or dvd but when using Netflix (our primary use) it freezes constantly. The fact that it is awesome when it DOES work earns it 3 stars. If it weren't for the freezing and connectivity issues, it would be the perfect dvd player.

One perk that I love is that if you also have a Samsung tv the blu ray player remote will let you change the volume, switch source, and power on/off. That came in handy when we lost our tv remote.

7daytrial,

Thanks for your review of the Samsung Blu-Ray player.

One of our recommendations if you are having trouble with the App freezing up is to make sure you have the latest firmware update installed. Information on installing it automatically (with Internet connection) or via USB (using a thumb-drive) can be found on Page 14 of the owner's manual.

Both the firmware and download manuals can be found here:

(Annette - Netflix, Pandora and YouTube are the only Apps at the time of this posting that are available on the BD-F5100).

Thanks for your support of Samsung product, and I hope that resolves your issue.

--Mr.Samsung
