    I saw this player on sale at my local store. After renvewiig other players I chose this Samsung player. Overall, I really like it, but I need to explain some things I think will help other prospective or current owners. Also, I’ve only used it with network cable and haven’t tried a wifi adapter.Firmware Update First of all, I want to say that the instructions to update the firmware wasn’t right. It is true that when you go to Settings, it will only let you try to update the firmware from the Internet (which didn’t work for me). So, you will have to use a USB thumb drive (maybe a Portable hard drive works too?) and plug it in the USB port on the front right side. HOWEVER, there are two important things I found that the update guide didn’t mention. 1. You must place the .RUF firmware file in the root of the USB drive. The update guide tells you to just copy the folder over which didn’t work. 2. My USB drive was formatted to NTFS at first and I wondered why it didn’t work. After I formatted it to FAT32 and plugged it in the player it showed a pop-up and asked me to update the firmware! After the firmware update you get Allshare support (Stream from computer) and two more Internet Streaming apps (Vudu & Cinema Now). Original apps that come with it are Netflix and Youtube. Image/Audio (Blu-ray/DVD) I’m very pleased with the image and audio from an upconverted DVD I tried.Image/Audio (Streaming/USB) I use the Youtube app a lot. To stream from computer you have to install Allshare on your PC first. I see it uses very little cpu on my PC and looks and sounds great on my TV. I was able to skip forward/reverse when I played content that streamed from my computer. I haven’t played movies off my (portable hard drive/USB drive) yet.Remote control I actually like this controller a lot. No eject button on it, but that’s ok. However, when entering a search it can take a little bit to touch-type each letter with just the directional pad (Wireless keyboard support would be great to have). Samsung Apps I’m not sure, but I got the intention I might be able to get more apps by registering my player online with Samsung? I’ll need to do more research on that.
