A Screw Loose
Pros: It is super small, and comes in an attractive design. Premium design makes it stand out. Small foot print. Batteries are included. Smart TV control center is fully customizable. I like the fact I can change the wallpaper. Default wallpaper looks amazing. Thin power cable is easy to hide. It has a slot loader instead of a disc tray which is better in my opinion. The remote looks pretty nice.
Cons: This device is 100% plastic. Where is the HDMI cable? I shook the device, and I can hear a screw moving all over the place. Build quality seems cheap. When the little light is on, that means the device is off. To me, that is counter intuitive. The four buttons on the device itself do not light up. I thought it was suppose to light up. That was the main reason why I purchased the device. I really thought this was their top of the line product, clearly it is not. For some odd reason, the player got very hot all of a sudden.
Other Thoughts: Though the device may have a small footprint, there is too much plastic involved to make it an Eco-friendly product. Also, would have been nice if it came with a super thin HDMI cable. Would have been nice if Samsung made this product out of glass and metal. Or at least some biodegradable plastic made from corn or something. In the pictures, this device looks premium, like it could be the centerpiece of anyone entertainment center. A device that truly makes a statement, but with this player, you just don't get that. The concept has a lot more potential than what was put in to this finished product.

Cons: Doesn't network worth a flip. Doesn't play mpeg4 like it says it does. Useless.
