4.0 out of 5 stars Bargain!, 22 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung BD-F5100 Network Blu-ray and DVD Player (Electronics)
This is a perfectly good Blu-Ray player, chosen not only for its price, but because I knew it would mesh perfectly with my Samsung smart LED TV, bought earlier this year.
I bought refurbished, as I have had previous good experience of this type of purchase, not only from Amazon, but also from Humax Direct.
Set up was simplicity itself. One HDMI cable from the player to the TV's HDMI (ARC) input, connect the power and away it went. Because of the designed compatibility with the TV there are extra functions available, which enhance usability.
Do note that there is no SCART output from this unit, so if your TV does not have an HDMI input you will need a SCART/HDMI adaptor. I guess this will affect the possibility of HD/Blu-Ray quality being available.
The player has internet connectivity if required, via a LAN cable, not wirelessly.
I think it supports YouTube and BBCiPlayer, but as I have these and more, facilities via the TV and the Humax Freesat HD PVR, I have not bothered with networking the player.

So far I've only used it to play a commercial DVD - Mamma Mia :-) (I don't yet have any Blu-Ray discs) and it functions fine.
Next step, regrettably for my pocket, is a Samsung sound-bar system, so that the TV's audio can match the quality of the video output!

Scart connections are pointless on an High Definition device, scart signals can't process high definition, they're for old style conventional televisions, DVD and VHS. All of which give vastly inferior picture quality to what todays TV's and Blu Rays are capable of.

I don't think so, although my memory may be at fault.
I guess unless it specifically says there IS one, assume there is not!
I had a couple of spare HDMI cables in any event. Don't be conned into a VERY expensive one. With digital it either works or it doesn't!

I think I MIGHT already have this cable. How can I recognize one?
