Samsung BD-E5900 Blu-ray player


This Blu-ray player is an excellent way to bring Smart features to your old TV

Excellent feature-set ; Simple interface

Web browser can be slow

Samsung's most appealing Blu-ray player is under $200, handles a swathe of features including 3D, USB playback, Web browsing, streaming video on demand and apps. The interface is generally easy to navigate and the player works quickly and quietly....

Bought this blue ray player with my new TV last year. It has sat in the same spot & played a DVD maybe once a week and after only 18 months it has just stopped working. Won't load a disk. Even tried cleaning the laser and no difference. So...

A bad start that only gets worse


Replacing a DVD player can be easy & cheap but we wanted to move into online material as well & thought this offered all we needed. Theoretically it does; the features are there. But successfully accessing it all is an absolute headache, & Samsung...

Features (if they worked!)

Features didn't work. Slow processing speed. Poor WIFI reception. Unhelpful Support. Short lived disc reader.

Consumer review (

Dumbest "Smart" device ever.


Instead of trying to cram a load of internet video and social networking toys into their devices, Samsung should concentrate on making their devices do the one job they're meant to do well! This really is a dumb device! It is slow to respond,...

Nothing much really

Slow, poor response to controls, too many internet updates, starts up by itself when not wanted, resume rarely works, internet apps are too hard to use with a remote, no optical audio out.

This bluray player is certainly worth avoiding


I am very angry because I bought a Samsung BD-E5900 3D Bluray Player about 4 months ago but it never worked at all so I haven't been able to use it, so I had to return it, which meant I was stuck without one while I went away on business somewhere.

Terrible design, Very expensive and bad service from Samsung

Consumer review (



I got one of these with my TV on special offer. I had trouble setting it up- testing systematically with all audio settings. For some reason it would not play in surround sound through my NAD amp. It forced everything to stereo with every setting. I...

Nice HD pcture

Setup not easy on older system, Sound quality not great, no flexibility with connections
