I purchased this after having had a Samsung DVD recorder which impressed me with it's upscaling qualities. This player is of the basic - no frills variety and the low price matches. On unboxing I upgraded the firmware and then following some instructions involving a harmony remote control very quickly opened up the DVD regions. When powering up for the first time you see an attractive onscreen guide to set things up, this was a breeze even for a simpleton like me and took all of about 30 seconds.

In this mini road test, I tried a bought DVD, then a burnt DVD, a bought CD, a burnt CD and of course a Blu-ray disc, the unit played the lot without issue. I then tried a CD burnt with mp3 files and after selecting music and play, away that went as well. Then I took the SD card from our Sony handycam and it handled the mpeg2 movie clips problem free. as was the case when we loaded the same movie clips to a USB flash drive and pushed that in the front.

As I mentioned at the start this is not one of those all singing or dancing BD players, but everything we threw at it, it handled and I've never had that with either a DVD or BD player previously - maybe I've been unlucky.

Start up is just as slow but a bit quieter than my other BD player, but hey, we're not really on a tight time schedule here. DVD upscaling might not be quite as good as with the Samsung DVD recorders, but that was also a more upmarket item when I bought that three years ago - lets say it does a decent job and is better at de-interlacing than my 1080p LG LCD is.

If this were a DVD player I wouldnt expect it to be priced at more than £25, its definately at the budget end of the market. However being bluray you have to add at least £50 to the price you think it should be worth. The spec is a reflection of the price: basic features, no on-board memory, doesnt play all video formats. The loading speed is very slow. Much slower than the 2 year old LG player it replaced. I tested it out of the box with Avatar and Despicable Me on bluray, and initially thought it was faulty as the video playback on both was very jerky. However after installing the latest firmware it now seems to be fine. If you just want a cheap and basic bluray player, this is decent enough for the price.

EDIT - Since writing this review I experienced more issues with jerky playback of new Bluray disks. No new firmware updates available to fix it this time. I sent it back and bought a Sony S380 instead. Disappointing quality from Samsung.

I've got to say I'm disappointed with quality of DVD movies played on my 38" LED TV 1080p. My old panasonic DVD player does much better job in DVD upscaling, which is means all yours DVD movies will looks crappy if you play them on HD TV. As Blu-ray its just ok, it's not quiet as I expected and also its not fastest player. I've should go for more expensive (better) model.

I bought this as a cheap (but at the time not the cheapest) solution for blu rays and DVDs. Very easy to set up and the picture is quite nice on my 40inch LED samsung TV. However the noise when loading a BR Disc is ridiculous, the noise does quiet down after the initial load, but every so often during playback you will hear the sudden loud clunk of the laser finding its place on the disc.

This I could live with to an extent, what I couldn't cope with and what made me decide to return the product was the loading/startup of a BR disc. I timed (I know sad of me but anyway...) 1:42 seconds just for the machine to recognise the disc inception, it then played the legal copyright notices, then took a further 1:02 seconds to load the menu, followed by a further 36 seconds after hitting play. 3:20 to start a disc.

My other annoyance with this machine is that is does not come with a HDMI cable. It does however come with a standard AV cable. Great... Accept my TV also made by samsung, doesn't support AV cables. I had to buy the HDMI separately, great product integration there samsung.

I'd pay an extra £20 like I did and buy a better machine. Trust me on this.

I got this Blu-Ray player soon after I ordered it and I soon had it playing but as some have already said it dose have one or two small problems ie slight judder on the film but not too noticeable.
It is more pronounced on sound but as I have another ordinary DVD player it is not a problem as I
play my CDs on that also ordinary DVDs but I do never the less like this little Blu-Ray player as it is light easy to set up and slides on top of my normal DVD player without hardly being noticed.
For the price I would think well worth it.

This is an average DVD / BluRay player. Build quality isn't great but what do you expect for the price. The item was described as "with Wifi". This is wrong, it only supports a wired connection. However, the network functionality via a wired connection is pretty good and it plays most file formats.

I did inform Amazon that their description is wrong but the faceless machine just told me to return it. So, if you need WiFi do NOT buy this!
