Samsung BD-F5900


Even in an age when media is increasingly streamed to mini boxes like Roku and Apple TV, a disc player is still a must-have for those who already own a cache of discs. Thankfully, all Blu-ray players double as streaming-media boxes, too, so you can...

The Samsung BD-F5900 offers a wealth of features and incredibly speedy performance; suite of apps is very good and the interface is easy to use; image quality is as good if not better than that of similarly priced players.

CD ripping is slow and limited; some ever-so-slight issues with cadence; Quick Start mode uses almost as much electricity when off as when playing a disk.

The Samsung BD-F5900 is an excellent Blu-ray player with the right mix of usability, performance, and speed.

Samsung BD-F5900 Blu-ray Player


Samsung made a big show of their updated Smart Hub interface at CES this year. For many people the important distinction between Blu-ray players now is the quality and variety of streaming content available and not the disc playback itself. The last...

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


Shopping for a Samsung Blu-ray Player? Here's a breakdown of all of the pros and cons of their 2013 lineup, the BD-F7500, BD-F5900, and BD-F5100. Overall, they're pretty solid choices.

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-F5900 Blu-ray 3D Player


DaintyOne of the first things you sacrifice with a budget Blu-ray player is build quality. At 4 pounds, there are teacup Chihuahuas that outweigh this baby, but you can't have it all when you're on a tight budget. Compared with other players in its...

"Worst Netflix Streaming Ever But Great Bluray playback!"


As far as I am concerned this is only really good for actual Bluray and DVD playback. If you want Netflix or Plex look elsewhere because this one I have sucks. Yes its fast, but what use is it if your constantly told videos are not available or Cinavia...

When it does stream, it will do 5800 kbps 1080p even though the TV is only a 720p set. This really isn't a Pro because it is wasting bandwidth when it does this. However, the picture is fantastic at the same time. lol

Constantly says Netflix videos are not available and to try again later. Even though same videos work on other devices. As much as it pains me I will just rip all movies and put them on our WHS instead. This thing likes to Reboot randomly as well.

"Best Netflix Streaming Ever vs Older Roku"


I am very pleased with the Samsung FD-5900's Netflix streaming which is the best I have ever had. It's 1080 and has capability for subtitles etc. which my much older Samsung Bluray did not. It starts up and loads DVD's & Bluray veryfast and...

Plays Blu Ray and DVD with no problems and streams excellent!

Qwerty remote would be nice

forget about watching anything that isn't on the pre-loaded apps. Period. No real browser, no app store, no HBO etc. Great for Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, but that's about it.

No more refurbs for me


The item came with some heavy scratches. Ok, it's refurbed, but... The first DVD I tried to play stopped and would't go any further. Restarted the DVD and it played for a while then stopped, and wouldn't go any further. I called Samsung to find out...

Good features, slow software


This samsung blu-ray player has a lot of good features like the full browser, netflix and additional apps.Where it lacks is the software performance. Switching between the apps is very slow, sometimes I have to load a app twice. And not having a mouse...
