It's a refurb, but the price is still 33% off for that. Also, it's by far the cheapest price from a reputable merchant and it appears to have good reveiws.

For the uninitiated on Blu-Ray specs and marketing terms, "Wi-Fi Ready" means that you need to purchase an adapter to get Wi-Fi. It will still have ethernet.

Review from Bestbuy.com -
"I have had this device for a little over a week now and have tried using everything this machine has to offer from the Samsung apps (Netflix, Twitter, Hulu+), DVDs, burned DVDs, BD, files on zip drives and so on and everything has worked perfectly. BDs play exceptionally well with no issues so far. I'm happy to have gotten such a great BD player for such a great price as well as the HDMI cable. Load times are a bit on the sluggish side but not a real complaint merely an observation on my part. My batteries were missing but that wasn't really a big deal. I'm glad to finally have a great BluRay player and super happy I didn't break the bank getting one!"

So at least you can pull what this device is capable of from this review. Sounds like a good multimedia center type deal.

I've almost gotten this player in the past, but was scared off by the really bad reviews on Amazon. Lots of complaints with loss of network connection and bad firmware updates. YMMV.

Samsung B-R players DON'T work currently with AMAZON Video on Demand, if that matters to you.

Also, these players often require specific, EXPENSIVE wi-fi adapters.

I have a Samsung Blu-Ray and the wifi adapter cost me another $45. Wasted my money though because it lost the ability to play Netflix videos within 2 months. Neither Samsung nor Netflix could get it to work again, and the Netflix tech actually knew more about the player than the Samsung tech.
