it work great with my HDTV SAMSUNG 52 IN 1080P ,THE TWO ARE LIKE BROTHER /SISTER WHEN OPERATE.
Blu Ray functionality sucks....always freezes or restarts
I have owned this player for about 4 months now. It plays blu-ray discs great but the reason I bought it was for the wireless streaming and apps, especially Netflix. It was easy to set up and it connected to my wireless easily but I found that it would freeze and quit streaming movies while trying to play movies through Netflix. I thought that maybe it was an problem with the internet speed at my house and I was due to upgrade to something faster so I switched from DSL to Cable. Internet download speeds were now aprox 6 times faster but still had the same problem streaming movies through the blu-ray player. I found that when I set my laptop next to the blu-ray and stream the same movie at the same time it works flawlessly through the laptop while stopping on the blu-ray. I do not recommend you buy this player if you intend to stream movies. Also at times it would display a blue screen while trying to stream a movie.The audio was fine but no picture at all.
I bought this Blu-ray player in November'2011 after thanks giving.
Until couple of days I saw only Blu-ray disc movies on this.
From couple of days I have been playing video(s) and music/songs using USB port and you know its not working from week. I'm getting Blank kind of GREEN Screen--Nothing displayed, sound was fine. Thinking of taking it to Sears for repair if possible.
But when I play Blu-ray disc its excellent.
Great price, great product!
<p>I wanted a Blu-ray player that 1) was wireless, and 2) would play movies from Netflix (and play them well). There are a LOT of conflicting reviews regarding wifi streaming movies movies from Netflix by all brands and models of DVE players; very conflicting, and frankly, discouraging. But, having read mostly positive reviews about this Blu-ray player I took a deep breath and ordered it from Sears, at a great price I might add. When it arrived (the very NEXT day, no less!!!) by UPS, I hooked it up (with hopeful anticipation). Very simple, consisting of plugging it into an electrical outlet and connecting the HDMI cable from our Sony Bravura HDTV--that's it! We have a cheapie Belkin wireless router, situated right next to the DVD player, that the kids use for their laptops.</p>
<p>I'm no electronical techno-whiz, quite the opposite. But I did not even need to refer to the user manual to get it all up and running. Just follow the prompts on the TV; they pop up as soon as the player is powered up. So simple! We first played a DVD, and as expected, was excellent (don't have a Blu-ray disc yet). But on to the good stuff. The BD-D5700 virtually connected itself to the internet when the "internet" icon on the TV screen is selected. When that's done, push the "Netflix" button on the remote--that's right, a red button right on the remote! Up it comes on the TV, with an activation code. Bottom line, it all went quickly and smoothly. We selected a TV series episode from "The Office" to view first. I didn't know what to expect, having read all sorts of horror stories on other web sites about the quality, or lack thereof, regarding streaming movies from Netflix. But the series came up and WOW! the picture, sound, everything is simply AWESOME!! Crisp, crystal-clear picture and sound; smooth, seamless streaming. It blew me away! </p>
<p>I know we picked the right DVD player; it suits our needs and far surpasses all our expectations. There are lots of apps included in the player (such as Hulu), and I can't wait to experiment with them. Thanks, Bob G.</p>
<p>User friendly! Love the Wi-Fi feature.... very easy to use.</p>
<p>I like the fact that it has built in Wi-Fi so I didn't have to buy an adapter. It was easy to set up and it has apps for Netflix, YouTube, Blockbuster and Vudu. The selection of other apps is okay and hopefully Samsung will be adding more in the future. The Blu-ray movies look very crisp and clear and the non blu-ray ones are upscaled too.</p>
