I have a new bd-es6000...
there are several apps not out yet.... samsung site is a real mess right now to purchase app dollars....
you need the keyboard to really do any entry of numbers etc.

however...
the dvd is ultra fast on the boot up!!
the player is small....
and netflix works good on it...

still wating for hbo go app

all in all maybe a 3 out of 5 rating for now......
samsung customer service is non exsistant... just scripted folks....
you can do better with the owners manual!!
I spent 2 day's working on the apps and finaly got an e-mail to the ceo... and now it is in the reports of issues on the site....

a roku looks like a better value as far as apps..... and then I think I will be with a sony blue ray player for the blue ray or I will go back to my old (2011) sony dvd player.....

I have not upgraded to new hd yet... I am doing the scaler adapter for hdmi to composite and s video....

maybe this weekend the tv I want will be in stock at walmart......
they were sold out.....

so I say wait and see.......
it is nice but.... not ready for retail yet!!

Paul in Iowa

New update: the Samsung is still glitchy at best... the roku works like a swiss clock!!
every time I want to use it is works!!
save your money and buy the roku if you want apps only...
sony or panasonic if you want the blue ray too!!
avoid the samsung for now..... customer service is just not there to really help... just scripted...

new updates....
well samsung tech services is worthless.....
all scripted out of the usa folks....
I am being nice here!!
So here is the best fix I have for this unit be
sides a big hammer grin!!
reset smart hub... this will make the player force to take the latest software..
you will have to sign in again to all the stuff like netflix, hulu plus, pandora you will have to use pc and re code on the site as www.pandora.com/samsung enter in the code from the player and sign in on the net with your pandora user and pass then click enter on the blue ray player.. it should work then!!

mine was coding again that it could not connect to the server at samsung... a smarthub reset fixed this!!

35 years of customer service I have yet to see a real problem like samsung's help line..... we need a class action that would fix that!!

Anyone know if the touch buttons or the loading slot are supposed to light up on this player? I have one and there is a white light on the right side that is lit when the unit is turned off, but when turned on it goes out and the entire panel is dark. I know a lot of people are not fond of lighted control panels, but in a dimly lit room a black player on a black shelf is hard enough to find let alone load a disc or bush a button.

Well,my brother just purchased one of these last week and that was the FIRST thing he said he DIDNT like about the player,so I highly doubt the player is defective,I think its just the way the player is,NO front panel lighted display.What I dont understand is why would Samsung have it on their other slot-in players and NOT this one,but then again,thats SAMSUNG for ya!

Maybe we'll get lucky and it's a firmware issue. It could be there is supposed to be a setting for the lighting in the menus.

Any feedback from owners as to how good this player is playing Blu-ray discs? I'm more interested in its very compact size for use in a limited space bedroom set-up. Some smallish Samsung players have not gotten very good feedback in the last few years.

Thoughts?

Thanks.

I guess I am fuming a bit and trying to see if there is anything that can be done.

I use Samsung bd-es6000.

(http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-BD-ES6000-Blu-ray-Player-Black/dp/B0078P6O8W/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1397757993&sr=1-1&keywords=samsung+bd+es6000)


Before the latest firmware update, everything was working fine ... now ...

1) Cinavia protection is popping up. Never had it before ... so ... had to buy WD Media Device

2) Screen size change ... before used to be able to press "Screen" button on remote and it have 3 options (Original, Option 1 Option 2). Option 1 was best ... lost just a bit of screen on the sides but nothing too major and yet nicely increased size of picture. Now ... Option 1 does nothing and Option 2 just stretches everything

Aghhhhh!!!!

How can I just go back>??? Anyone?

Belatedly, and FWIW: after some general searching it appears that there is no way to downgrade firmware on this model (to be fair, that's rarified territory to begin with).

...and I need your sweet love, Latina T-Mobile girl!
