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.

All of the 2010 and 2011 Samsung BD players should offer access to Netflix's full movie library.

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.

Question

Does this blu ray player play files on a NAS device attached to my router?

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.

Question

Will it remember my network password?

I am currently in the process of returning the BD-D5500 because although it offers wifi access (if you purchase the LAN adapter) it does not remember my network password. Every time the unit is powered down it forgets the password and I have to re-enter it the next time I start it up. Samsung tech support informs me that there is no way to set the DVD player so that the password will be remembered (inconvenient enough to be a deal-breaker). Does this model allow you to set the password once or does the same problem exist? Do ANY Samsung models allow you to set a password just once?

After consulting support, it seems that the Samsung BD players are supposed to save the Passwords; however, if for whatever reason the router is intermittently resetting or loosing connection with the BD player, the password maybe lost. For additional information, please contact Samsung Service.

In order to access content from a USB device, the device in question must meet all of the following requirements:

1. It must offer a Mass Storage Mode
2. It must be formatted in a FAT file system
3. It must not contain any DRM content. DRM content is not supported by the Samsung TVs

Wifi built-in means the unit can operate on your wireless network without additional hardware while wifi-ready means you need to purchase an add-on piece of equipment from the manufacturer to communicate with your network.

"Wi-Fi Ready" indicates that the unit is capable of performing Wi-Fi streaming, however it will require the additional Samsung WIS09ABGN LinkStick in order to do that. This is also available through your retailer.

Thank you for your interest in Samsung products.

The USB outlet is on the right side of the front of the DVD player (it has a cap on it, just pull it open) and you just need to go into the dvd controls to switch to using the flash drive. It will play most anything you have on your flash drive.

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).
