Mr. Samsung is indeed incorrect. I have this unit, and wireless is built-in. It connected-up to my Linksys router without an issue.

I'm fairly sure that MrSamsung's answer is incorrect. The BDD5700 comes with WiFi built in, so you shouldn't need additional hardware to connect to your WiFi.

Yes, the Samsung WIS09ABGN LinkStick is required for wireless capabilities on the BD-C-5700. You'll also need to have a wireless access point, or a wireless router and Internet service.

Thanks for your interest in Samsung products.

Bought the Samsung BD-D5700ZA BluRay player along with the Samsung UN55D6000 LED TV at Best Buy. Also bought a Samsung LinkStick. Absolutely love the TV. Can't say the same about the BluRay player. Since the TV does not have a built-in wi-fi, I had to use the BluRay player to access the content online. I was never able to connect to the internet. Tried to get answers from Samsung 5 different times. Every time they asked me to do something different including changing router security/authentication, etc. Bottomline is...this player has some serious issues. RETURNED THE PLAYER TO BEST BUY. KEPT THE TV. I bought a Sony BDP-S580 BluRay3D player for $109 today (Black Friday) at Best Buy, Set up was a breeze. Also bought a Roku for more content. Since I can access Netflix and other content through Sony and Roku devices-I'm contemplating returning the Link Stick. Does anyone see a benefit in keeping the Link Stick?

Overall-Samsung makes great TVs and BAD BLU RAY PLAYERS.

I think mrsamsung is wrong again.. the bd-d5700 just came out in 2011 and has the 2011 smart hub on it.
and again.. according to samsungs website the browser is refered to as the Google browser.
besides here Ive seen several others correcting mrsamsungs information. also got bad info from a live chat person on samsungs website. not sure what to do now

Currently, there is no information on whether or not the 2011 features will be added to the 2010 and earlier models. That said, the browser is only available on select Samsung TVs, and is a Samsung browser, and not a Google browser.

From the available information, it seems that, besides YouTube, all other video services will be subscription based. Sidereelz and Megavideo currently do not have applications on the Samsung Apps system.

I'm looking at the manual and I don't see VCD listed for supported format OR formats not supported. Since it's not listed in either case I'm going to have to guess this unit doesn't support it. Perhaps Samsung's site will give more info?

Although the remotes are not universal remotes and are signal device remotes, using Anynet+, you will be able to control the BD player through the TV. Anynet+ is a function that operates through HDMI jacks and lets you control up to twelve Samsung devices with your Samsung TV remote, with up to three of those devices being of the same type (for example, three DVD players). You can only use Anynet+ with Samsung devices that have the Anynet+ feature.

I'd like to be able to play ISO files (dvd movies), avi files or jpg files that are located on a NAS device connected to my router (so, on the network). Does it have that capability?

Since the BD-D5700 offers AllShare (DLNA streaming feature), it should be able to access a NAS connected to your home router.

Although the player should upconvert a DVD that is not HD to 1080p, the output resolution can be manually set to the same resolution as your display. Additionally, when you connect the player to the TV using the HDMI cable for the first time or to a new TV, the HDMI output resolution will be automatically set to the highest supported by the TV.

All Bluray players can play on older non-HDTVs! All of these players have a built in setting that detects what type of TV you have so it will downsample the video so it will play on older TVs. Also on the back is standard video/audio connections that you can use as well as a HDMI port for when you do upgrade to a new HDTV. (HDMI is a must for a digital signal to a HDTV)

Although having an HDTV is recommended, you should still be able to use this product with an SDTV and use all of its features, including Netflix.
