Consumer review by: 3DFan (samsung.ca)

Working great after more than 2 years

 

" For ordinary 2D and 3D Blu-ray discs the unit has worked flawlessly. We do not use it very often however since we only use it with a projector and those nights are less than weekly. "

Better picture quality results than my Panasonic Blu-ray player that I bought later for my main T.V. but which cost a great deal more. I had bought a 3D T.V.. in a sale and was curious about what this worked like - so had to then buy a 3D Blu-ray...

Plays every file format i have tried, .MKV, .TS(VOB) and everything else. Well laid out remote control. Very easy to navigate menus Well built, solid construction Price was an added bonus, good product and a good price ! Have not found anything i don't...

Drive is a little noise'y,while reading discs, but with careful placement this is not an issue. Once the disc started to play, you didn't notice.
