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.

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.

The BDD5700 will not offer FM radio connectivity. For a unit that does offer FM Radio connectivity, please have a look at the Samsung Home Theater Systems.

The BDD5700 should offer AllShare DLNA, which allows you to access saved content from a DLNA device like a PC or Cell Phone (please refer to your manual for additional information).

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.
