I spent ages searching for my first blu ray player online. I came across this Samsung one which really appealed to me because of the price and it's features.
The player has been a really good purchase. The picture quality is superb (when hooked up with a full HD tv set), it lets you connect USB devices such as external hard drives which is really handy if you have loads of media files stored (like i do). The brilliant thing is that it plays lots of different file formats!
However, it's best feature is probably the wi-fi connectivity feature. When connected (I had a bit of trouble connecting which was easily resolved by Samsung technical support ) the player lets you use apps like youtube, facebook, bbc i player which are all fantastic! The quality of the videos streamed are excellent, the only thing i didn't like about the apps was the facebook interface. This could have been a lot better but considering you can still view status updates, pics and videos - it's ok.
I really hope that Samsung develop the Internet@TV feature more so that better apps can become available because at the moment, the choices are limited.
On the whole though, i would highly reccommend this player if you're new to blu rays. The price is great and the features are brilliant!
This is a brilliant BLU-RAY player. It is stylish, (incl a light up blue logo on the top of it) and fast loading (took very little time to load Avatar).
Its built in wi-fi makes it easy and simple to connect to the internet to make sure it has the latest software on it. Access to the internet incl facebook, googlemaps etc.
Overall, it is worth paying a little more as you recieve a whole lot more!!
