This seems like an insane price for a wifi bluray player, no?

It seems to be a good deal but be aware that this is not progressive scan and it is not 3D compatible.

Samsung Blu-ray players are some of the most unreliable on the market. I've owned two now and had to go 'Office Space' on both of them. After that, and a $1,400 Samsung LCD that quit after two years, I will never touch their products again.

@cengland0: You're confusing what progressive scan means to a DVD/Blu-Ray player. Blu-ray discs all play at 1080p, which is progressive scan. What your probably thinking of is upscaling, when a standard DVD is played at HD quality. But that doesn't matter either, because all major brand blu-ray players upscale to at least 720p, which is still progressive scan. If the player wasn't progressive scan it would output a 1080i, or 720i picture (i = interlaced). You might be able to choose that if your TV displays as such, but there is no question that all blu-ray players are in fact progressive scan.

Bought this on regular Woot a couple of weeks ago figuring if the apps didn't work and the Wifi sucked, it'd still be a cheap Bluray player. The good: upconversion for regular DVDs is great, Bluray works. The so-so: when plugged into the router, the apps work okay. I can get decent Netflix and Hulu+. The bad: stupid thing does not remember where the show left off so if you're watching a series DVD you have to figure out what episode you were on. Even my 10+ year old Sony DVD player does that (man that thing is still chugging along). Remote response is painfully slow as is connecting to the apps. WiFi range is ridiculous. Small place and router was just two rooms away, no signal. If you're trying to improve your signal don't set anything on top of the box, I was told sometimes the WiFi receiver receives signal there. Bottom line: If you can plug it into your router, want a Bluray player, and have something much cooler to fall back on like AppleTV...you can't lose at this price.

@daver1617: You might be right but I'm just going by the comparison chart here:

http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-BD-E5700-Blu-ray-Player-Black/dp/B0076R7F62#Comparison_Chart

It shows that it does not support Progressive Scan. Perhaps that's when you're playing a DVD but that would still be annoying to me if you put in a DVD and all you get is 480i instead of the 480p.

Even Samsung's website doesn't mention Progressive Scan capabilities:

http://www.samsung.com/us/video/blu-ray-dvd/BD-E5700/ZA-specs

I could be wrong but after seeing that comparison chart, I'd like to get confirmation that it can do 1080p and that it will also play a progressive scan DVD in 480p. Do you have any links that shows it will?

Don't just walk away from this "deal" Run very very fast. Samsung has horrid customer support. I had to send mine back for repair which incidentally was a replacement for the D5700 that was sent back twice for repair. They never offered anything else but "repair" I was without a unit for a total of 1.5 months. This caused me to NEVER buy another Samsung product in any shape or form... EVER....

After reading all the reviews for all the different Blu-Ray players, I have decided to just cough up the cash and buy another PS3.

Only 5 minutes left if you want it.

Looks like they relisted it for 24 more hours.
