Nice Machine and Price - FORGET THE REBATE


Forget anything with a rebate.

Nice unit and price (with rebate)

Plain brown box, but it works. 120 days so far no rebate. No rebate support, just a phone number where, if they do not hang up on you, they just say they have no information

Consumer review by:

simple basic blu-ray


Everything works and firmware/software update was flawless. Netflex button on remote

No Wifi no 3D but at this price that is what you get for a basic player. Even with dedicated Netflix button on the remote control, two many clicks needed to reach Netflix cue

Great Value


So far, I've enjoyed my Samsung BR player. I tried a BR for the first time last night and it wouldn't play, but could have been a bad disc. Will try another soon. It plays regular discs OK. I like the internet option. That was llike a bonus for me....

Great pick for an inexpensive player


Needed an inexpensive blue ray player. This was an excellent choice. Has more features than I need since I have it with my smart TV. Great features and picture quality...easy to connect as well.

Consumer review by:

Good, but...


This looks like a good product, but clearly not designed with the international market in mind. I can understand that, since this product is sold in many countries, but at double or triple the price. Blu-rays perform good, with some delay on the menus,...

Inexpensive, Durable, Lightweight

Did not meet expectations

This product has alot of features


I love that you can play blu ray and dvd disc. I enjoy the HD in the picture quality. It shows very clear, that you will enjoy the movie ride. I do wish it has the general time on the display, especially when the power is turned off.

blu ray/ dvd

no general time display

blu-ray disc player bd-e5300


Nice, small , lightweight, easy hook-up. Easy to use remote, but it does take a few extra seconds to respond.

Inexpensive, Lightweight

Consumer review by:



It was said on the box that it could get Netflix and Pandora but I could not get them to work. I spent more money adding routers and cables and still could not get those programs running.

Inexpensive, Lightweight

Poor quality, Did not meet expectations

Consumer review by:



I usually love Samsung products but the Blu Ray functionality of this play stopped working in less than 6 months.

Bright display, Realistic color, Lightweight

Poor quality, Did not meet expectations
