This is a great product that does exactly what it says on the box: upscales Blu-Ray media to UHD format TVs. I have a Samsung TV, and the link between the two is fantastic - allowing me to use the TV's Bluetooth remote to control both the TV and the Blu-Ray player. The only disappointing thing is that it will not play 4k (UHD) media through Netflix or Amazon. If you are expecting a 4k media player, you will be disappointed. At this point, I believe only smart TVs can handle UHD, but I was hoping that this model would handle it. Having said that, it is nice that it handles all of the Samsung Smart applications at normal HD (1080p). Because I have a Samsung UHD Smart TV, I just use the built-in apps to play 4k (UHD) streaming media.

Browser App Slow, Quirky, & Crashes Often

I purchased the BD-F7500 as a hoped-for key piece in the digital upgrade of my home; i.e., Wi-Fi router, BluRay, printer, and smartphone. I planned to use the BD as a Wi-Fi bridge to bring the Web and Movie services to my older HD TV (it has no Ethernet of Wi-Fi), and to mirror smartphone media through the BD to the TV. First, BD set-up was quick and easy and connecting to the Wi-Fi network a breeze. Downloading the installed apps was not quite as easy, but went well; however, unwanted apps linked to Samsung’s business partners cannot be deleted, which restricts the amount of memory available for apps I may want to add later. The key feature of the Smart Hub is the Web Browser App, which I found to be highly unreliable. It is slow (clunky), its keyboard does not sync well with common search engines, and it seems confused by an external USB keyboard (but using an external USB mouse is great). Worst of all, the Browser App is highly crash-prone when streaming high-content video from typical Web sources, especially when I attempt to view content in full screen mode. (Yes, I checked the network connection, checked for software update, and reloaded the apps.) That said, when the modem to Wi-Fi to BD/Web browser to HD TV links are all working, its great entertainment. Today I watched 10,000 Japanese singing Ode to Joy in German. Awesome! Note: Smartphone is on preorder, so I have not yet tried mirroring.

    This player could be component size, and for some reason it won't play some discs when my other newer/older players will. It has a great selection of apps.

                Comments about Samsung Curved UHD Blu-ray Player with 4K Upscaling:

                I recently realized that my previous and much more expensive but slightly dated blu ray disc player didn't play 3D movies nor had the 4K capability required to match my recent purchase of a high end Samsung 9000 series 4K TV, so I decided it was time to upgrade. I shopped around a bit and settled on the Samsung which is a perfect match for the TV. It so far has worked flawlessly and in fact a perfect match for the TV. Highly recommend this product to anyone considering such a 4K/3D capable player.

                    I love my 4k blue ray player. I can watch any blue ray on my Samsung 4k uhd TV and it up scales it to 4k and oh my the picture is out of this world. I luv the touch buttons on top of the blurry player. Everything is top notch.

                        I have been using this Smart Blue Ray player for about a year. It has been really performing well. I have watched a lot of movies in Netflix and You tube and i dont remember of one time it stopping for buffering. Overall it has been a good product. I have not been able to experiment with 4K yet but rest seems to work as i expected.
