One of the reviews says: "Blu-rays are stunningly good and DVDs are upscaled and look good too! In some cases better than on a DVD player."

Surely upscaled DVD's should always look better than when played on a dvd player?

FYI, Samsung are yet to enable the LoveFilm or iPlayer functionality. And considering my current Samsung blu-ray simply hangs halfway through a system update, I'm a bit nervous of just buying it and hoping they'll make it work at some point.

Still not a bad deal, though - particularly when you can CEX the Blu Rays and make back a few quid. Just don't get too hopeful about the internet bits.

this is my local HMV for the same price.

im going to pick one up from mine tommorw - just wasnt sure on it

This is the same price everywhere, it's not really a deal as such. I got mine from Blockbuster. I agree with Jondot, I am also frustrated that it still doesn't have iplayer functionality, and it has received four updates since I've had it. and they're quite big, I reckon about 50 Mb each.

Having said that, the player is spot on. I have it connected to my network via ethernet, and have a hard drive connected to it via usb. While I can play any file format from the hard drive (including 1080p mkv files), I've not managed to get the ethernet doing anything other than receive updates.

I was very happy with it, and getting 4 blu rays with it is just a bonus. By the way, we got this on the basis we could sell the others (they arrive as full boxed blu rays), when we got on to Ebay we saw various permutations of the 6 films going for pennies... :)
#13
Does it have a USB slot?
#14
Just gave in and swapped my old one for it and there's a vast improvement. YouTube is higher quality as far as I can see, but irritatingly there's no iPlayer or Lovefilm as I suspected. Weirdly it made me install the Lovefilm one too, and then threw up 'coming soon' when I tried to open it. Thanks for that...

EDIT

Oh and Facebook (should you want to use it) has exactly the same message. And the rovi TV listings just doesn't work at all. And nor does Twitter from what I can see.

I noticed that as well.

In the features it says it has Allshare but in the specs it says no - very strange
#17
wow!!! awesome deal AW!
#18
Mine's definitely misbehaving now, and as an added bonus the [email protected] bits are painfully slow to navigate. You press a button... wait... wait a bit longer... then it registers. I'd rather bite my own arm off than use YouTube on it again, particularly as it doesn't even let you watch any of the on demand stuff Channel 4 have put up on there.

To reiterate, if you're after a cheap blu ray to just play blu rays and bits off flash drives, buy this and take the free movies to CEX. If you want something for YouTube, BBC iPlayer or Lovefilm, buy a Sony S370. Which I will now just go and do instead.
#19
great price

trade blurays in at CEX for £31 cash / £38 trade so you get it for even less

Ok I just called Samsung to check this with them. I've never called their support before so don't know if this experience is the norm or not but the guy was useless and didn't listen or beleive me at all even when he was reading the same information I was pointing out on the Samsung website.

Anyway it turns out that he was unable to confirm what I was asking. He was able to say that it doesn't have Allshare but it does have DLNA and for it to speak to anything else the other device would need the same DLNA mark and have Allshare. To be honest it sounded like he was just using the terms having no idea what they meant. I asked if this means it would play the media I store on my NAS drive with a DLNA server running on it but he couldn't answer other than say the other device needed to have the same DLNA mark or Allshare.

Based on this I may not bother with this player and go for the Sony 370 instead as I know it will defo stream content from my NAS.

I brought it recently for £125 including multi region dvd playback. Its quite slow in my opinion. I regret being hungover when i purchased it. The remote control looks like its from the 80's and it's huge. But end of the day it does the job.

Bill Bailey's take on watching Mamma Mia was spot on: "It was like being hit over the head with a piece of Ikea shelving - painful, but you had to admire the workmanship."

can confirm region free (dvd only) hack by supplied remote control does work, need to get timing right though, took me about 6 tries, credit to videohelp and av forums for supplying the details

power up without disc in player

although other forum posts say wait for no disc message in top left of screen appears, then input code, it worked for me after the no disc message disappeared

press repeat button on remote, then press/input as follows

5,7,5,3,8..................................number 2 appears in top left of screen, when this disappears press 9, which then displays on screen and player is then dvd region free, pressing another number instead of the 9 will lock the player to that region, one poster had inadvertantly pressed 5 and player is locked to 5 and they are unable to reset with code again, ...... so......if attempting take care to input correctly and (disclaimer....haha) do so at your own risk

glad i did, mine plays all regions now, icing on the cake for me will be iplayer upgrade, £99 at HMV with 6 discs, will look to sell the 3 i don't want

unfortunatley I've already bought this item last week from HMV for the same price.
This feature would of been nice but get it running but there's no option to select network media.
it may need a update in the future.
having said that I'am very please with the usb feature as it was able to read different partitions of my external drive both fat & ntfs which displayed as seperate souces something my old player couldnt do.

I'm looking for a player that will stream from my NAS drive kept in another part of the house. I have no intention of moving the drive around to be able to play back via USB. To have the site saying it is Allshare via DLNA is just complete lies so I will not be purchasing this item.

Basically if your someone looking for a decent player that doesn't do anything much else this is the one for you, but if your looking for one that is more future proof (ie can handle iplayer, lovefilm etc and can stream media via network) then do not purchase this as you will only look to replace it in the near future.
