Denise, Home cinema enthusiast

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Very good menu finder, and plenty of space for adding music files or home video footage via thumb drive. Clear picture quality.
Bad points:
Anyone looking for a DVD recording drive should know that this is NOT an HDD/DVD recorder. The title on the web site it a bit misleading. This is a BluRay/DVD player only.

Andy, Cambridge Film lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Combination of blu-ray, DLNA, PVR, twin freeview HD
Fast, reactive UI
Clean interface
Easy to set up
Bad points:
Internet/apps can be slow
Lots of fiddly issues - couldn't use the apps until after an upgrade, can't delete recorded programs whilst a recording is taking place, a general feeling that you have to "learn" how best to use it

C, Southend Home cinema enthusiast

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
Too many moves to delete recorded programmes. Not enough simple functions such as a clock. To timeshift the machine must be programmed first.

I feel this was a hastily assembled jumble of ideas and, being a Samsung fan, am very disappointed.
