hi just got a new tv for christmas and its totally new technology for us, im 60 and clueless...

ive been searchin the forum and havent found a specific answer

which samsung linkstick wireless lan adapter usb drive should i buy to enable wifi (internet, netflix), an older model or another/generic company, because the one i found is about 80 dollars which is a lot i think, its the samsung WIS09ABGN, but a generic will do

OR perhaps a better suggestion:

is there an exellent bluray player that has built in wifi that can be used to play netflix???


thanks a lot

80 dollars is about right. I dont think generic works from what i hear but i could be wrong. Yes blu ray players by samsung are available by samsung with the same smart hub for about 100 bucks but you will still need to buy the stick. Some have built in wifi or include the stick but are 150+.

wi-fi ready means no stick

Built in wi-fi means no stick needed or stick is included

Ive seen many confused when they buy a wifi ready tv or blu ray and dont realize the seperate purchase necessary.

can anyone recommend a blu ray player with built in wifi (that doesnt require a lan wifi stick) so i can watch netflix or stream via the bluray player? price range is under 200, preferably 150.

doesnt need to be samsung, just a good basic bd player with built in wifi/netflix...

thanks

I'm pretty sure a generic will not work. I bought a Sony panel for my parents and ran into the same problem. Your panel will be looking for a stick that says 'Samsung' or the equivalent and will reject any other.

The Rosewill RNX-N1 works perfectly with the Samsungs. They currently cost 30 bucks at Newegg, and sometimes go on sale for 25, or 20.

well i thought about it, and i figured a bluray player with builtin wifi would be a better choice since ill need one anyway formovies,and it seems samsung does have proprieatary wifi usb drives from other threads

the panasonic 210 was recommended because it has a better netflix GUI than the other bluray players, can u guys agree or recommend another one?

That's like asking the Democrats and the Republican to agree to anything!

But I will throw in my 0.02 (which may complicate things rather than simplifying it) there is a list of device, somewhere in here, that best can deal with Netflix: Dolby Digital/subtitle. If those two features don't interest u then never mind.

Solution: FREE. Explanation: I will have to charge$ you.

The Panasonics have a bad rap for random black screen flashes while streaming Netflix. The problem seems pretty wide spread, and there appears to be no fix. I recently took a chance on a 210, and sure enough.......black flashes on Netflix! This one's getting returned tonight, and I'll probably just swap it for a Sammy 5700, and see if I get a good one. If it sucks, maybe I'll just spring for an Oppo.

The black flashes depend entirely on your internet speed. Are they annoying? A little. But it's a small price to pay for the best interface (DD5.1, captions, search, categories, etc.). On my 20Mb service, I see them maybe once a month at the very beginning of a movie. When changing resolution/speed other players freeze on the current frame or add some fuzzy in-betweens, but panasonic goes black. This blank usually lasts a fraction of a second. I wish Panasonic would fix it, but it's really not that big of a deal. Very few owners in the Panny thread have returned theirs over it, myself included. In fact, considering the player is practically free, I can't complain. Overall, it beats the heck out of any other player I've ever had (sony, samsung, toshiba, insignia, etc.).
