Samsung BD-F7500, BD-F5900, & BD-F5100 Blu-ray Player Comparison

 

Samsung's 2013 Blu-ray players stay pretty much withinthe lines. They continue to phase out analogue connections, while focusing onsmart features, UHD, and 3D playback. This year they are offering threedifferent units, the BD-F7500, BD-F5900, and...

We’ve already covered Samsung's 2013 soundbar lineup and hometheater lineup, both of which impressed us, but the Blu-ray lineup is a littlemore lackluster. Don’t get us wrong, the units are fine, and Samsung’s SmartHubis an industry leader, but as a...

Samsung BD-F5100 review

 

This compact, entry-level Blu-Ray player offers great value for money.

This entry-level model in Samsung's 2013 range delivers a ton of features for around £60, making it one of the best value Blu-Ray players you can buy. When you compare this model with players from a few years ago, you'll appreciate just how much value...

Don't buy for US DVD - wrong regional code

 

Don't buy this for playing DVDs in the US. The unit I received isn't for US DVDs wrong regional code (so they won't play).

Solid little player

 

Great little Blu-Ray player, especially for the price! I only needed a BD player, so I can't speak to the other options (ease of networking, Netflix, YouTube, etc.). So far, I haven't noticed one issue. Discs load really fast, and there have been zero...

Can't really think of any. The footprint is very small, but I can't say that that is really a "con." The touch buttons are on the top of the unit; hard to see if it's in an entertainment center/rack.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

my error

 

my earlier review of this product last week was in error. It wasn't the disc player that failed, rather it was the 4 year old 32 inch Samsung LCD TV that finally quit working. The player functioned as before after I replaced the TV with a new one.

price, ease of use, functions well, good video

flimsy build quality....very breakable disc carriage tray....set top "buttons" really really hard to identify and use so don't ever misplace the remote
