Samsung BD-J5900 3D Blu-ray Player Reviewed


Samsung's 2015 Blu-ray lineup includes four models: the BD-J5100, BD-J5700, BD-J5900, and BD-J7500. All four players include access to streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, VUDU, YouTube, and Pandora, as well as the Opera TV service that...

The BD-J5900 loads discs very quickly. It can also power up instantly if you enable Quick Start (which is off by default) ; Disc playback was reliable, and the player's deinterlacing/upconversion abilities are good ; This "smart" player includes access...

Movie playback over DLNA was slow and finicky ; The user interface is a bit cluttered. Plus, every time you want to move from a disc to a USB drive to a DLNA server, you must go to "Change Device," which is not very intuitive ; Apps like Netflix and...

If you need a new disc player to spin your CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs (including 3D), Samsung's BD-J5900 is a good disc player offered at a great price. It powers up quickly, loads discs very quickly, and offers good video performance. Unfortunately,...

Easy setup


Very easy to set up and connect to the internet. Like other reviews wish it had a power light to see if its on or off. Loads DVD's quickly. Could not find the CNBC app which was part of my last Samsung DVD Player.

it's a CR Best Buy.


This top-rated, 3D-capable model from Samsung delivers very good overall performance. It can play 3D Blu-ray movies (when paired with a 3D TV and glasses), as well as regular Blu-ray discs, DVDs, and CDs. Like all the models in this Ratings, it...

Great features.


I like the blue ray player with the exception of having a on/off indicator light. When I turn it on I have no way of knowing if I pressed the correct button or not until I try to start the DVD.

Great product


I've had the BD-J5900 Blu-ray Player now for about 2 weeks and I can truthfully say it is fantastic. Haven't used all the features on it, as I have it paired with my Samsung Smart TV and most of the internet features of the Blu-Ray are on the Smart TV....
