The player lacks premium playback features like 4K and 2D conversion support.

The Samsung BD-H5900 has the design and feature versatility to be a useful part of your home theater setup.

Update on my previous review

 

Appears Samsung's quality control is dropping at an alarming rate. I own several Samsung products and thought about investing in one of their newer TVs. I doubt very seriously I will now

Still faster than my old Panasonic in load time

After warranty repair - does not play regular DVD's ; I so hate wasting my time, energy and money, not to say this particular product cost me a bundle, but it's the principal
