I really want to turn my 55" tv into a smart tv.. Can this help me? I cant afford a smart tv... Can you give details? Thank you very much.. ;D

  • A. you can't turn a TV to a smart TV. A smart TV means it comes with some computer like function, like built in Wifi, web browser, let you visit certain services, like Amazon videos/HD movies, youtube, fitness center, and others. Your TV might be compatible with BD player so you can enjoy its smarthub, like web browser, share music/video/photos from your smartphone, USB, digital camera, etc. Depends on your TV compatible with BD player.

  • A. Yes, this product has the Smart Hub feature, which allows you to be able to stream movies, videos and music from the Internet, and also access various paid or free-of-charge applications and view them on your TV. Smart Hub is the application and platform we use with our smart TVs to make them "Smart", and would essentially make any television it is connected to have the ability to use apps and perform additional tasks and features. While we can't determine if *every* television might qualify, based on the fact that some televisions have a limited number or different types of inputs, if you have a television that accepts an HDMI input, then it's most likely that you can use this Blu-ray player. Thanks for your interest in Samsung products. Mr. Samsung

Bought this player because of its claim to allow you to browse the web, it does but takes forever to type in search. I am returning it for this very reason. If you want something that gives you web browsing capability look somewhere else.

The full web browser stated on the box was the main reason why I purchased this DVD player. It was very slow and no qwerty keyboard or a similar keypad. I also had to figure out how to even search and type on my own because it was not mentioned in the manual. I own a Vizio m420 led TV and I'm mostly interested in having a full web browser attached to the TV for ease of browsing. Did not find it here! I usually like Samsung's products and I think the quality of the product is nice, but it lacks and is completely misleading on the web browser function. I quickly returned the DVD player back to Walmart. I had not tried the DVD player for DVD use, but the interface looked nice.

Just got this with a new 3d tv, setup took about 15 to 20 min on a 4mbs wifi connection, i did notice i had to power off and on after updates to get it to read discs but haven't had a problem since, I havent surfed the web with it thats what my labtop it for, my biggest complaint is with the net flix app its menu is horriable, takes forever to find any thing, and half the srceen is taken up by it saying what the movie is about. I have a samsung bd c5500 that came with the first hd tv i got and love the neflix on it, it has all different catagories to pick and easy to find stuff, if i could get that menu on this player it would be great, also with this player on netflix i notice the picture can blur sometime during playing for a few sec to a min or two and then it may or maynot do it again but seems to do it alot, my other c5500 doesnt do it, i guess it has something to do with the other complaints about it running slow on internet, dont know how to check how fast it is going with it. That is my biggest complaint if they fix that then all will be good and give 5 stars. 3d plays great only got 3 3d movies in which 1 is latest release and it played awesome.

Pefect in every way. People having "NETWORK" issues need to fix thier, guess what?, NETWORK. The player is fine and works beautifully with all apps including Netflix. One minor preference... My other Samsung HD DVD player was beautiful and silent. It is a bit quieter (though not blue ray tech, so okay), but also silver with blue accent lighting on power button, jog dial and in digital display. This one has green display- not dibhilitating or anything, but makes it look old. I would recommend this inexpensive unit to anyone. Easy to use. Has every single optionbuilt in. Has SMART TV by Google in it. Also has awesome ability to upconvert all video and audio properties to high def digital. Sound is upconverted, as is video enhanced from home movies, streaming, old dvd's, etc.

Poor web browser

I found the web browser to function poorly, The remote is a poor substitue for a real keyboard or mouse. It is difficult to navigate and the pages are slow to load. Small apps took a relatively long time to install. I also found the manual to be fairly lacking in any real instruction. I had to figure out on my own what app was needed to install for outside mouse and keyboard. It was not listed anywhere within the manual. There were also no specifications or instructions reguarding the external memory. People who bought this solely for a blu ray player could have gotten the same quality with a cheaper device. The web browser and apps fail to deliver a user friendly experience. I will be returning this device and seeking a higher quality product. Probably not from samsung.

I had high hopes for this model. I was replacing a 5 year old BluRay player that started to show a few issues. Set up wasn't too bad as long as you know what you are doing. Tried a few of the on-line applications and they worked pretty much as expected. Put in a BluRay disc and it played like it was supposed to without issues. Then I put in one of my older DVDs and here is where I ran into problems. The first disc I put in started to jump ahead randomly and started skipping chapters. The second DVD I tried played for four minutes and froze to the point I had to reboot the player to get it to work again. The third DVD I tried again skipped all over the place. So I boxed the player back up to return it to the store and get another brand.

Lets face it I love Samsung products. I really can't find mush wrong with them. I wanted the product because a friend of mine had the same one connected to his Samsung 60" LED 3D TV. I was really pleased to find the hook up with the TV and the web very simple. It even connected to the TV wireless network easy and quick. The Directions on screen are simple to follow and most people who have little experience in doing this have nothing to fear. The App's in the Menu are everything one could want. I'm most pleased with the Samsung All Share application you can download and run on your PC or Apple OS's . It's fun to show your pictures on a PC and view them in a slide show on your TV. Thanks Samsung!

First unit set up and updated then within days would not start up any more even after unplugging and left to set. Second unit kind of worked but netflix failed on first attempts most of time and even second once or twice. dvds would not play certain chapters for no apparent reason.Payoff was one dvd in particular was choppy and voice and picture went out of sync.old player never did such things and had no problem with dvds in question.Also seemed to want to always reinstall web browser and aps and delete bookmarks in process.Very surprised and disapointed as i really wanted a web browser but did not feel like trying 3rd replacement unit.
