|Hi there. Ive never bothered to write a review on such a purchase before but as other peoples reviews influenced my decision I thought Id add my opinion. I purchased the machine for Xmas and thus got the following Blu-Rays for Xmas, the Matrix Trilogy and Batman: The Dark Knight. I have also rented some other titles. I have to say I am delighted with it, the loading of the discs does take slightly longer than your normal DVD but certainly nothing excessive. I can be a tad impatient so if it doesnt bother me Im sure it wont you. My TV is only HD ready and not full HD but even so the picture is superb on all the discs I have watched so far, couldnt be more pleased. My TV is also Samsung and that also influenced my decision to get this player, I dont know if this makes a different or not. I also have had no problems (so far!) in playing any discs and I havent had to connect the player to the internet to do any upgrades. This is a bonus as this was something I was expecting to have to do having read other reviews/articles on Blu-Ray. Overall I am delighted with this purchase which I got directly from Amazon. If you are after a simple yet quality player Id recommend this machine. It has proved very simple to set-up and (so far) hasnt caused a single problem. |

|Weve had a bad experience with this item.|
At first it would sometimes freeze at the menu. We would have to power it down and power it back up again and then it would work. We updated the firmware and thought the problem would go away.
But then it froze up more and more often, and finally now it wont play much correctly. It will get to the DVD/BD menu and then play the menu loop endlessly, responding only to On/Off and Eject (both on remote and on front panel). It wont even show the `No Disc` menu so we cant update to the new firmware from the menu, and it wont update from CD either.
We are going to go through the Samsung Repair/Return process and try to get it fixed or exchanged. We hope we can get a working one as the picture quality is great when it does work.
In the meantime though, its just a very expensive and frustrating radiator.

|good...hmmm upgrades this is now 2.0 bd live active with a firmware update from website or thro ethernet , NOW DIVX READY ALSO but doesnt like ntsc playback divx no good , why am i bigging this player up ??? divy|
To get a true grasp on blu ray you must compare you cant go from just saying i think the picture is great ,Seriously this player is margionly better than PS3- which is so bad man honestly why do peeps say its amazing ,the xbox360 hd plyr is twice! as better for sharpness than ps3 and thats saying something but the 360s colouring and dimness shading is the same as its built in dvd which isnt enjoyable viewing for most people ,ive seen alot of hd blayers thro dif tvs and this player ok it is a nice standard pic and sound is v good! it has no definition its just plane looking its just like its just their so wot ,and you really want a film to look really stunning and crisp this player falls short in my view, its pretty smoothe as in the juddering in some blu ray playback ,altho fare doos it really does try and make it bold and bright colours it really wont make the high quality grade. theirs my 2 pence worth .standard watchable.
p.s if you order the one without the 2 dvds then you get the option to add them as a gift which is the same but you mite find like me you open the box and get a surprise anyways !!
