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!
