What customers say about "Outputs"
Samsung BD-J5100 Curved Blu-Ray Player (HDMI, 1080p)
  • Works well and good picture and software. Only connects via HDMi so make sure your TV or surround sound accepts HDMI.
  • Easy to install & use the product. HDMI cable made it easy & clear picture.
  • Works like it should, hdmi connection, great picture, easy operation.
  • HDMI cable made it easy & clear picture.
  • Everything is good with the exception of the fact that it randomly turns itself on, which annoys me greatly, when I'm watching something else and my tv switches to that input. I now keep the hdmi cable disconnected when not in use, which is a pain in and of itself.
Samsung BD-J5700 Smart Blu-ray Player Built-in Wi-Fi
  • Hooked it up to an hdmi cord to the tv and that was it.
  • Liked the HDMI hook up. Easy to follow instructions for hook-up. Price was good.
  • Using HDMI converter to connect to red/white/yellow plugs.
  • Digital audio quality is very good too.
  • Like others, my only gripe is the lack of any indicators that the unit is on. A little LED would be helpful, but I guess this might be a tradeoff for a low price.
