BD-5700

SAMSUNG WiFi Built-in Blu-ray Player BD-D5700
SAMSUNG WiFi Built-in Blu-ray Player BD-D5700

Pros: Easy installation, great picture and sound, lots of apps available, only tried netflix and MLB so far but both look good. Was a birthday present for my dad, and since my parents aren't great with tech it seems very user friendly for them and walks through everything

Cons: Doesn't come with an HDMI cable which not a big deal just ordered one elsewhere but it still would have been nice to see one come with it. Light weight feels kinds of flimsy so I'm hesitant to move around a lot. Makes some noises while loading a disc, going to watch that, I'm hoping its just menu loading sounds need to read a little more on it.

Overall Review: I read a lot of reviews on the BD-5700 here and elsewhere, and as such I meant to order a different samsung BluRay player for my parents, but messed up and ordered this one instead, so far I've been pleasantly surprised. A lot of people are complaining about load times and such for the internet on this model. However my parents already have terrible internet so load times are actually not nearly what i was expecting.
