I love this Samsung Blu Ray player!!!!!!,
This review is from: Samsung BD-E5300 Blu-ray Disc Player (Black) (Electronics)
This Blu Ray player the (BD-E5300) is perfect for me! I don't stream movies via the internet (Netflix, Vudu, etc...) so I can't comment on how well is streams or if it freezes or not. I just use the player for my currect collection of DVD's and Blu Rays and let me say it plays them all just fine. The Blu Ray player upscales so good that it makes my DVD's almost look like Blu Ray discs. I also like the remote because it has an eject button and the remote can control your TV's volume and source. There is nothing wrong with this Blu-Ray player, it's pretty basic and that's all I need to play my DVD's and Blu Ray discs. Oh yeah, it has the "full screen" mode too, so just incase you have some movies that won't fit your screen, no worries this Blu Ray players takes care of that with that "full screen" mode option on the remote. No negatives about this player. I love it!!

At last! a review that addresses what we want to do: play DVDs. It was very helpful and I liked not having to disentangle whether the reviewer was talking about streaming or playing a disc.

Thank you for commenting on the dvd playback and (from what I got from your review)- the simplicity of this machine. I need to buy something for my parents from generation X and I don't need all the crap that other blu ray players offer. I just need one that upscales dvd's and plays blu rays and has a remote. Voila. Thank you again for your review. Will make an exciting christmas present! :D

hi, i don't knowif you are tracking the comments from your review or not, but if so, i'd like to ask a quick question. i was ready to buy based on your review until i read another reviewer who says it takes about 10 minutes to load her bluray disk and that it's noisy while loading. are you finding this to be true as well? if not, i'm sold on this one. i hope to hear back about this. thanks!

Yikes! Ten minutes!!!??? I was thinking about buying this, since I just want a very simple one, but now I'm wondering....

Sorry it took so long for me to reply. I'm just now logging it and noticing all the replies. Ten minutues to load a blu-ray disc? lol... no way. It's a little noisy when it's loading, maybe because it's trying to distinguish a blu ray disc or DVD. So yeah it makes a little noise while loading but not while the movie is playing.

Yeah, that's all I want to do is play movies on DVD's and Blu Rays. I prefer viewing hard copies vs streaming.
