I had a sony Blu Ray player before but when we got our new Samsung TV we got this Blu Ray to match with it. And man did I miss my sony. There are not so many apps in it but there are but when you match it with sony this one would not be what it should be. Though I love Pandora and also the HULU and a lot of other apps. Sony had some free cool Doctor Oz Apps and some Yoga app which I miss a lot. Overall this player would function well. The one thing it does is that it kinds of blanks out while we watch a movie which we have gotten used to but I dont know if its the player or the fact that we have it connected to our home system with HDMI's. But other than that it works great and has Built in WI Fi and also a port to use your hard drive which is kind of cool to see family pictures and all. The quality of the picture is great though and we have not had any major issues with it.
