So, how is this different than the one for sale over at Tech Woot:

I can see that the other one is $10 cheaper and comes with an HDMI cable, but other than that and the model number it appears to be identical in features and even in size and weight. They even have the same picture.

$80 refurbed at wallyworld. 4/5 stars in their reviews. Main complaint seems to be internet connectivity and app trouble, but happy owners said the picture is phenomenal.

Hmmm - was considering it until saw the reviews over at amazon. You might want to take a peek there prior to buying...

Do not walk away.... RUN RUN AWAY!!! I have a BD5700, which is a replacement of two other replacments of bad product. No refund was ever even considered. I am stuck with a sub-par streaming device, that also take a long time to load a blu-ray disc. I will NEVER buy any other Samsung product in any... ANY product category.

I bought one of these for my dad to play ripped movies/tv shows from a USB HD and it works great. The wireless card and netflix apps are basically useless though.

I have an older Samsung Blu-ray player. It has a fixed Netflix interface instead of Samsung's "apps"... and it works fine.

Seems like the newer "app" approach is buggy, though, so I am shying away from this.

I have (had) the Samsung bd-e5900, which appears to be extremely similar to this model, and ultimately had to return it. The picture quality, both 2D and 3D, was excellent. I tried playing movies from a USB drive and they all played without issue as well.

The connectivity features, however, were disappointing. My player was ~25 feet from the router, and it was impossible to make it more than 5 minutes through a Netflix program without buffering or an error. I was also very disappointed with the player interface. There was a significant lag (roughly one second) from hitting any buttons. Scrolling around the apps took long, and attempting to use the built-in browser was rendered useless, because it would take over a minute just to type in a URL.

If you just want a nice playing 3D blu-ray player, this might work for you, but if you're interested in any features beyond playing discs, I'd probably look elsewhere.
