This is the third refurb I've ordered from Walmart. All have been exceptional values. I'll continue to recommend and shop Walmart refurbs.
I was a little nervouse about which p;ayr to buy after reading reviews on It automaticallly installed and updated the apps such as netflixbupon linking it (very easily) with the wifi in my house. However, ntflix was choppy when i tried to stream something from my instant que. To fix this issue simply go to setting and click on softwae update. It will update itself automatically and fix the lags and jerks experienced when streaming.
This system is a steal, very easy to connect over WiFi, has all the latest and greatest features. The blu-ray player is incredible. Very happy with this
The Samsung BD EM57C Smart WiFi Blu-ray is a great device. Even though I purchased it as refurbished, all features and components are working in excellent condition.
The only slight downside was that there wasn't a manual that come with the device. So, I had to download the manual from Samsung's website, it was no big deal because the manual wasn't that big to download.
The remote did take a bit of time to figure out even with the manual handy. Be warned that you will need to be patient and read the manual and there is a slight learning curve on the correct way to use the remote. A lot of people don't take the time to read the manuals, thus complain about the remotes without bothering to read up on the proper remote usage.
Setting up the Wi-Fi was painless and easy to do.
The auto-tune of the remote along with my cable box's feature was fairly quick and easy to do.
I did get a message from the device's menu that the software had to be updated, that was done painlessly and the menus seemed to function a bit better. I did have to re-do the Wi-Fi settings again as it seemed to lose the original settings.
Overall, I gave this Blu-ray player a 4 stars out of 5 with the small issues of the missing manual and a learning curve with the remote.
I have always been skeptical on purchasing refurbished products, but Samsung is a good product and i am pleased with this purchase, plus the price was great.
Horrible player! Does not play netflix and then one day decided to not play any movies either. It always would freeze up. You get your money's worth. It is horrible!
I had another refurbished Samsung Blu-Ray player from Walmart, but my network changed and my home theater connections changed so this player with it's built in wi-fi and Digital coaxial audio port fit my needs perfectly - lots of apps to choose from, a Netflix button on the remote is really convenient and the USB port on the front is easier to access than those that have them on the back. My son is still enjoying the refurbished Samsung Blu-Ray player that I replaced, so from my perspective they're reliable and quite a good value.
This player exceeded My expectations for the price; even for a refurb. Priced @ $68 it was $73 shipped to the front door. Nice 6' HDMI cable included, remote w/ batteries & the player. Player has slim & tight profile w/front USB port & bright green display w/tall characters. It's size is deceiving, this is a powerful Blue-Ray! Start-up & general operation is fast, also WI-FI enabled with a really cool & user-freindly interface. Plays & reads over a dozen disc & data formats; a great asset for folks utilizing digital copy & USB expansion drives to store & play misc. media. The Samsung store & apps are also impressive; the "All-share" especially which syncs wirelessly to other devices on Your network(ie. computers, smartphones, game consoles, etc.) & will play/display their files as well; fast, smartly, & wireless! I've got a Sony WI-FI Blue-Ray player bought @ Wal-Mart in Dacember 2011; it was twice the price & is half the product of this Samsung. Again, this player was refurb'd thru Samsung & sold thru Wal-Mart, on-line @ $68 plus shipping. I haven't checked retail pricing on this player but if it's under $150 brand new, it's a great deal for quality, functionality & the included HDMI cable. It was a steal @ $68 & has thus far performed beautifully. I am highly satisfied with the product & the purchase & will definitly look @ Wal-Mart re-furb's in the future. One note to Samsung on what would be a great improvement/addition to this player; an additional, rear USB port. I'm making due with a "Rock-Band" 4port hub on the front & having no troubles. To all parties concerned, & I don't say this often much less give 5 star reviews; Great Job & Thanks!
I thought by buying a refurbished one they would have fixed the bugs, I think they just passed it right on through without doing anything to it. This thing is so painfully slow. Its like dial-up on downers. Netflix does ok but YouTube freezes up and i have to unplug the unit and replug in to get it going again.
I bought this same player from Best Buy...It is awful. I thought something was hooked up wrong so I called the tech support and after doing all the things he told me to do, he finally just got honest with me. The player is slow, the remote control has a 1 to 3 second delay and some buttons on remote will not work. It will never get better. I thanked him for his honesty and took it back to Best Buy and got a SONY.
I was kinda skeptical but the player works great. The Wifi was easy to connect, it took less than 10 minutes and it has been working so well. The wireless connections stays strong, the discs play well and the samsung apps have a good span of variety. Very happy with this choice.
I purchased this wifi blu-ray player to watch streaming movies on line....works perfect.
Old model. Very poor wifi performance.
Best media player I think I've ever had. So far so good. Even being refurbished it works very well
I like it
We previously bought a Philips Bluray but discovered that the wifi required purchase of a separate plugin to work. It was slow to load netflix. The Samsung however was easy to setup, has options for game apps to load and loads Netflix easily through the wifi. I am very pleased.
I guess the price for this was too good to be true! (Bear in mind, I don't believe the problems I see in this product are due to it being a refurb.) This Blu-ray player is going back to the store tomorrow!!!! It is horrible slow, horribly LOUD, and doesn't have an Amazon app or access to one and the Flixster app would not work. (We have had it for 12 days.) And the remote is confusing to even look at, let alone use! It's going back and we"re looking for something better that DOES allow me to access Amazon Prime.
*I will say that once it does play your movie through whichever format you choose, the picture quality is VERY good. Which is the only reason it got 2 stars from me instead of 1!
I wont ever buy a dvd player from walmart I am very disappointed with this purchase because, after a month the smart hub app stopped working, then i decided to call samsung's company and they told me that the dvd player has been already repaired. And that i didnt get it new I was like really ???? becareful with what you are getting from walmart.
Great picture quality, DVD's picture looks like you are in the movie, so real like, and the colors are so natural, estecially in a jungle type movie.
I love this machine.
I purchased this for streaming Netflix for my TV, works great, saving lots of money I used to spend on cable.
