I really like my Samsung. Loads super fast and hasn't had any problems with playing a disc.
The only thing you need to know is that occasionally you have to unplug them which fixes any little weirdness they get.
Don't remember which Sammy you got, but I recently tried two BD-D6500s and neither would connect to NetFlix and both had problems with Internet connectivity. Then I tried a BD-D5700 and had the same problems. Gave up and went back to my BD-C5500s which all work quite well.
The new Sammy's are out now. Same model numbers but prefaced by an E rather than a D or C. As soon as the prices drop and more reviews are available I'll try them out.
I did call Sammy and ask about the problems I was having and was told to wait for the new ones to come out. They are aware of the problems with the D's. From what I could gather, it's kind of hit or miss when buying one of the Ds. With my luck, I got the lemons...as usual....
Still haven't seen any BD player at a reasonable price that upscales streaming NetFlix content as well as the Sammys do. That does include the Sonys and Pannys. I've tried several models of each brand. Both do everything else as well as the Sammys, but I watch a lot of streaming content.
