I often read that many here dissuade others from purchasing Samsung BD players, but I have a Samsung F5700 that I really like, and I have had Sony, Panasonic and a PS3. The Samsung starts up quickly....

I use HDMI-CEC with my TV and PS3. It is great. But I cannot exit Netflix using my TV remote. I have to either use the PS3 remote or physically turn off the power to the PS3. I have a Samsung BD...

My first impression is that while the J5900 is not a bad player, I think I will be returning it. I see no compelling reason to upgrade over the F5700. The newer UI is a little prettier, but...

Target didn't have a model number on the sale tag, but it wasn't the J5900 for $59.99. It must have been the entry model. The 5900 was sitting in that spot and it was the only one left. I should have...

My local Target has one for that price. I am going to head over tonight and pick it up if it's still available. Are the apps responsive or does navigation lag?

I have a 2013 Samsung F5700 that I actually really like other than its slow performance with its apps. Target has the J5900 for $59, which seems like a good price. Should I upgrade?

Yes. They will be different. But you'll also need a 4K TV to take advantage of the higher resolution. Plus, you'll need a TV that supports HDMI 2.0, and eventually HDR, wider color gamut, higher...

Wired is more reliable. If you have a lot of devices on your wifi, you might experience more dropped packets, which may lead to some latency. If you don't have a large family and devices competing...

I only ever owned one standalone DVD player, and I don't remember if it had such a feature. Maybe DVD players have better features than BD players today then. I have two 2013 BD players and I had a...

With BD, it depends on the coding on the disc. The PS3 saves the data to the device, regardless. So this applies to DVDs. I often am watching a few series on DVDs mixed with BD discs and I can switch...

Oh, sorry. The 230 is a Panasonic. I like the PS3, which is still one of the best all-around media players. And it is still the only BD player that resumes where you left off even after removing the...

I have a 230 from 2013 and you can't enable the Progressive mode to anything but Auto and make it stick. Unless it is set to Video, DVDs will show jagged lines when moving rapidly, like an animated...

I had my 65" Panasonic plasma wall mounted at slightly more than eye level so that the sound bar sitting on the entertainment center didn't block the TV's sensor. We are in the process of moving, and...

I knew someone would say, "Get an Oppo." :D Of course, very few consumers know about them or will purchase one given their high price tag. The Sony S7200 seems to try and come close to that high-end...

Unfortunately, that is the trend. Every player this year is small, ugly, cheap plastic. Each year it seems to get worse. They really aren't helping drive the sale of Blu-ray with these inexpensive...

You've mentioned this a few times before. What settings need to be changed to get the most out of a Panny? I have the BDT230 from 2013 and it doesn't have many picture options.

Considering you have an S6200 I don't see a compelling reason to replace it with this year's model. Other than the 24p support, you're gaining nothing from what I can see.

I considered picking up...

Yes, the 360 from Panasonic has a display. One issue with my 2013 Panasonic 230 is that when watching DVDs I noticed that with fast-action animation, such as lip movements, you'll see jagged lines...

The most notable difference is a standalone player is quieter, and more energy efficient. I own a PS3 Slim and a 2013 Panasonic BD player. I even had a Sony S5100 briefly last year. For Blu-ray, I...
