Buggy and slow - avoid
on 22 October 2012
I was looking for a Bluray player that would also show iPlayer, Netflix and LoveFilm. This product does all of these things and seemed very good at first. Despite a laggy interface in the Samsung SmartApp section it seemed excellent value for money.
After around 2 months the picture began to intermittently cut out every hour or so. It would usually come back after a few seconds, but sometimes with a purple hue. I contacted Amazon support to request a replacement unit and they were very helpful.
When the replacement arrived it was worse than the original! The picture had cut out multiple times before I could even configure the network, and on it's 4th or 5th time it didn't come back until I rebooted the unit. I tested both of these devices on two TVs which both have other HDMI devices connected, and the fault always remains with this product.
This is a disappointing product from Samsung and one to avoid.
