This is instore only (The direct link takes you to the description of what is offered but doesnt show the price) I believe its Nationwide as my friend in Peterborough just got the deal and we have it locally in Sunderland,...

Okay, so this is what you get;

Samsung BD-C5300 Blu-ray Player
Toy Story
Mamma Mia
Sweeney Todd

Its a great starter kit for someone who hasn't got a blu ray player and the player on its own is still selling for more than this deal is!

Samsung’s [email protected] feature sets new standards for connected Blu-ray players. The new [email protected] platform provides viewers with a gateway to a multitude of entertainment ranging from Video, Music, News and Social Networking. [email protected] offers a diverse range of online content, simply content you devise to the internet via ethernet cable or wirelessly via Samsung wireless LAN adaptor to access great online services like BBC iPlayer, giving you access to TV, music and much more.

Connecting is easy with All Share

Now you can enjoy movies, music and photos from your PC and other mobile devices, right on your Samsung TV screen. With Samsung's Allshare (powered by DLNA) you can wirelessly (Samsung LAN adaptor required) sync your PC and Samsung mobile phone with your Blu-ray player, streaming content and even keeping tabs on who’s calling and texting you with real-time monitoring on your screen. Samsung’s All Share makes staying connected easy.

Stop Waiting with Ultra Fast Play

At Samsung, we believe there’s always room for improvement. We applied this philosophy to reduce the time it takes for a movie to actually start after inserting a disc into a Blu-ray or DVD player. Our Blu-ray players were engineered with Ultra Fast Play to eliminate those annoying load times. It gets you into the entertainment right away. So sitting down to watch your favourite movie no longer entails the drama of slow device booting and clumsy tray openings.

WiFi Ready Connectivity

Wireless access to the infinite possibilities of next generation entertainment is as easy as plugging the Wireless LAN Adaptor** into the back of the BD-C5300. [email protected] and Allshare content can be accessed without wires, so you don't need position you player in the reach of an ethernet wire to enjoy the additional multimedia features on your Samsung Blu-ray player.

Fewer Distractions, Fuller Screen

To maximise your viewing experience, you need all the picture you can get. With the Screen Fit feature, the Samsung Blu-ray disc player’s automatically converts 21:9 aspect ratio movies to 16:9 aspect, eliminating those annoying black bands crowding the scenes. Watch movies the way they were meant to be seen—with just one touch of the screen fit button.

Expand your multimedia horizons

Samsung's Blu-ray players can handle more than just Blu-ray discs. They will all play standard DVDs, even upscaling them to near full HD quality. Samsung Blu-ray players also allows you to plug in a wide range of digital devices via USB, so whether it’s in MP3, DivX, Divx HD, JPEG, JPEG HD, MKV, or AVCHD file formats, you’re able to enjoy your favourite files from the comfort of your sofa.

Dolby True HD
Dolby TrueHD delivers high-definition sound that’s just as stunning as your TV’s HD picture. With advanced, lossless, multi-channel audio codec technology, you’ll be immersed in sound that’s identical to the studio master recording.

DTS HD Master Stereo
The new standard for Blu-ray lossless audio codec format, DTS-HD Master Audio, delivers positively all of the information from the original master recording. So, what you’re hearing is identical to what the sound engineers originally laid down.

With Divx playback, you can insert DVD’s and CD’s that have Divx movies downloaded from your computer and watch them on your TV.

Anynet+ is an AV network system to automatically control Samsung audio-video (AV) device. There is no need to use different remote controls for different devices. With Anynet+ feature, all you need is one remote control for simple and convenient experience.

Nice bargain! Sell the BluRays then player becomes cheaper! hot!
Looks a good deal. Heat added. If it is the package you've linked to, there should also be "£20 worth of rental vouchers in the box"
Thanks for posting
Wow, that's properly good value! Would pick one up if I hadn't bankrupt myself already this month..
If the spec of this player is correct, then this is a brilliant way to add 'smart tv' (internet tv) capabilities to an AV setup that doesn't have it.

Note that you'll need a dongle for wifi though, should work out-of-the-box with ethernet cable from a broadband router or mains plugin network adaptor.

Have some heat.

Can this stream MKV just live WDTV-LIVE?
Nice bargain! Sell the BluRays then player becomes cheaper! hot!

Thats what i was thinking! the movies on offer might not be everyones cup of tea (including mine) but even putting them on eBay should get you at least a fiver for each so theres £30 back in the bank if you get rid of them all!...hopefully it is Nationwide too, ill pop down to my local and take a pic it, only reason im not buying it is because Ive seen the 5.1 surround sound with player for £160 so no need for it :D but im sure plenty of people will want it at this price...

Interesting...almost double the price...not sure bout the MKV Walter, but it would say somewhere in the spec if it did i guess?
I think this is the same player I have an no it doesn't stream from a network source. It's the only bluray player of it's age that doesn't do DLNA (sadface) however you can run .mkv straight off a stick and it's mighty fine.

The interfaces to the smart tv apps are slow but they do work well enough for iplayer, lovefilm, youtube etc.

The picture's great too. It's also updated fairly regularly.

Great Price, some good Blu rays aswell, could always sell them which would lower the price to about half.

Well, it says it does DLNA, although I realise that doesn't mean it does .mkv. However, my understanding is that DLNA is not really a unified standard as the implementation (and hence the compatibility) varies manufacturer to manufacturer.

i bought this last year when HMV did this same deal for £99.99
Its a superb player and loads blu-rays very quickly
and if you factor in the 6 blu-rays for say a fiver each its a steal

It plays 720p/1080p DTS MKV's brilliantly through both the USB and Disk at 24p
I have yet to find a video file it wont play
Sorry i havent tried the ethernet so cant comment on whether it plays via DNLA

All the 6 blu-rays were sealed so you can sell them on ebay if theres any you dont like/have already got.

I sold Bruno......for many many reasons

No on sale anymore :(
Great price - especially if you like the included films. :D

Don't think you'd get very much selling the bundled blurays, tbh. (I think those saying you'd get £5 for each, or recoup half the cost of the package are massively overvaluing these films...) Irrespective of that, though, you're getting a capable player and a starter pack of films for £70 - which is bloody good value in my books.

Voted hot. Nice find AdamDT.

I own a C5300. Thought I should register to post a few comments.

It is quite an old model, it was discontinued about a year ago, if not two years.

The original selling point for this machine was fast start up speed. BluRays and DVDs start quickly on this player compared to the really old ones. Picture quality looks great to me.

It has a great USB port on the front which allows you to play pretty much anything on a USB stick.

It features a wired network port, which I use a wireless bridge to get online with. (actually use a logitech squeezebox classic). However this does not enable DLNA or media streaming of your own media, but it does allow you to access the Smart TV menu.

The smart function includes a LoveFilm (not tried), youtube (terribly slow interface) and BBC Iplayer, which is fantastic. The 4oD channel on youtube will NOT play on this player, which is a shame.

It does not have DNLA / All Share as standard, but apparently this can be added by using the samsung dongle. I've not found a single person online who's managed to get DNLA working in this way, so I wouldn't bank on it if that's what you want. Thankfully in the last few months a better alternative has become available for Samsung BluRay and TVs...

There is a player for the Plex Media Center, which allows you to stream all TV and Movies from a PC, Mac or Linux server. This turns the player into a fantastic media streamer, with a fantastic interface similar to XBMC. Lots more details here: http://forums.plexapp.com/index.php/forum/89-samsung-smart-hub/

Plex support is worth the price alone!
I used to own this machine, there's two things to consider:

1. It doesn't do streaming. Yes the box says it does and Samsung's website says it does but it doesn't
2. It only has one USB socket so you can't use a Wi-Fi dongle AND online aspects of Blu-Rays (As online BD stuff needs an external memory device to save to). This also means you can't have wi-fi and watch movies off a USB stick at the same time, you'll be device swapping

You can of course plug it into a router via an Ethernet cable and then plug in USB storage

This is probably why Samsung included the 6 free movies in the box, they realised (too late) that only one USB socket was an oversight

Can anyone advise on how much an appropriate wireless dongle for this would be? Cannot decide if this is any good as a first blu ray player (I am not that bothered about the films, and they seem to sell on ebay for less than £4 each?)
Just picked up one of these from Bishop Auckland. One more left in stock at 12pm.

You can't just use any old dongle, it has to be Samsung's expensive WIS09ABGN which is £37 on Amazon
Amazon do however list a third party dongle which is the only other device which works and can be seen here
both local stores to me say they have sold out
