What customers say about "Features"
Samsung BD-JM57C Built-in Wi-Fi DVD Home Theater System Black
  • I use it more for the the ability to use steaming services then to play my blu-rays.
  • Great product. My parents loved it. It handles all formats I need.
  • Very good Blu-ray player I also like the built in Wi-Fi and the usb port.
  • The player has an HDMI port, an Ethernet port and a wi-fi radio built in.
  • If you prefer wireless connection versus Ethernet connection then this product is for you. Streaming your favorite service works just fine.

What customers say about "Outputs"
Samsung BD-JM57C Built-in Wi-Fi DVD Home Theater System Black
  • Positive - It comes with an HDMI cable.
  • Hooked it up to an hdmi cord to the tv and that was it.
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.

What customers say about "Accessories"
Samsung BD-JM57C Built-in Wi-Fi DVD Home Theater System Black
  • It came with an hdmi cable, the remote, the DVD player and the setup instructions. You will need 2 AAA batteries for the remote.
  • It came with a pretty decent length HDMI cord, remote, and easy almost nothing to do instructions.
  • Hey! It works! Comes with a remote and batteries are included!
  • There are no function buttons on the player aside from power and eject so don't lose the remote.
  • The one thing that bugs me is that the remote doesn't seem to be perfectly programmed to operate the player.

  • Nice remote control.
  • Comes with a remote and batteries are included!
  • Sometimes the remote control can be hard to understand but I only use the play and start and sometimes rewind.
