Richard, an average T.V. user.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Better picture quality results than my Panasonic Blu-ray player that I bought later for my main T.V. but which cost a great deal more.
I had bought a 3D T.V.. in a sale and was curious about what this worked like - so had to then buy a 3D Blu-ray player and a couple of films to try it out. the results were quite impressive.
Bad points:
Needs a dongle to get BBC iPlayer so budget for this extra cost if you want this useful feature - or better still rather buy the Samsung with the built in wi-fi for an extra £30 (the dongle cost this much as an extra anyway). I wish bought the built in wi-fi version as the dongle is quite large and protrudes from the front of the player but internet connection was a useful feature that I wanted - I find it works brilliantly with no buffering. Aside from iPlayer the other internet features I feel are a total waste of time. Note that it is only the BBC catch-up service that is available but this is true of the Panasonic version too.
