I want to like it, but...
from Cambridge, MA, USA
Comments about Samsung 3D WiFi Blu-ray Disc Player:
It's too bad, because there's a lot to like about the 5900. The package is nice, simple, compact. Looks well-made. The front-panel display is great. The remote is logically laid out. The UI of the on-screen controls is attractive. I have several Samsung smart TVs and haven't had any problems. That's why I decided to get a Samsung blu-ray player. The problem I'm having with the H5900 is in the apps. First, there's the fact that this model H5900 is supposed to be an upgrade to the F5900, but the apps are more limited and restricted. Instead of Samsung Apps, we apparently have Opera Apps. I don't know if that explains my bad experiences or not. The flickr app can't be used at all. There's no way to log in due to a serious software glitch. You can't even enter your Yahoo username. Sad. In Pandora, I randomly see an alert that Pandora is "unable to connect to network" even though the internet connection is wired and there are no issues with my internet( cable, 30Mbps, lots of devices connected, no other problems reported). Although the music keeps playing, the bogus alert stays on the screen, allowing only one option - to quit the app and go to the Home page. I'd like to continue listening to music and interact with the Pandora app, which appears to be working despite the alert. But "Home" is my only option. It may as well have crashed. Stupid. Also in Pandora, the unit goes into "screen saver" mode. You'd think that any button press would get you out of that mode but, no, the "select" button is processed by the app. Thus, I have inadvertently clicked on thumbs down on tracks I was enjoying, causing the track to be skipped and giving Pandora the exact opposite feedback. There's no way to go back and correct this. Distressing. The Opera speed test app says my downlaod speed is 13Mbps. (It apparently determines this in a millesecond or so.) Meanwhile, on my laptop, wirelessly connected to the same network, the download speed is 30Mbps. Another App fails. The Opera TED app just put up a network-related alert and then crashed, so I'm guessing the wired network connection is really an issue. I'll try wireless and report back here (if they let me edit my review - TBD). I want to like this unit but, so far, the software apps are spoiling the party. I will revise this review upward if I start to find apps that aren't annoying and/or broken.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Awesome Blu- ray Player
from Chula Vista, CA, USA
This blu-ray play is great. Has many functions and built in apps that allow ease of connection and user experience. Definitely enjoy the 3D aspect of it as well as my children love 3D movies.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
No web Browser, few apps, poor response to remote, slow menuing, slow internet
from New Orleans, LA, USA
We own multiple samsung products including 2 F5900 blu rays, 2 55-inch tvs, galaxy tabs, dvds, etc. We were very excited to get the 'new' H5900, assuming it would be a newer version of the F5900s we have. We are terribly disappointed that the H5900 has no web browser capability, many fewer apps, does not even 'see' our 5Ghz wifi (and the F5900s we had very near to the H5900 did), has poorer internet performance, slow response to the remote, and slow menuing. We are very disappointed and inconvenienced to have to return this product as inferior to the older samsung f5900s we already have. This was a gift for our daughter and now we are back to drawing board to get a similar feature set to our older models and feel like we need to explore other brands when we did not ever plan to.
Super fast loading of Blu-Ray
This replaced a 6 year old Sony Blu-Ray. The speed of loading the Blu-Ray disk is outstanding.

Best DVD Blu Ray Ever
from middle of nowhere,, Appalachians
I have to say, This is the BEST dvd/ blu-ray Player I have ever seen !, From the minute I connected this unit (BD-H5900 ) It is Out Standing in every aspect of a DVD player. I cannot detail all of it, just wanted to get this review in for a product I really Like from a Great Company that really Does Make Better Long Lasting High Quality Stuff ! A couple of years ago I would not have said this, too many negative comments from various product reviews, ( I look at ALOT of them ) Samsung had too much going on, were developing too fast, but I really feel that is behind Samsung now. I am not connected to Samsung in any way, other than I am a real happy Customer. And I bought this Refurbished., As soon as the 4k models come out I will be setting things up to upgrade all of my stuff, as much of samsung as I can afford, Thank You
