Samsung BD-J4500/XN Blu-Ray player
  • Fantastic picture quality, plays all dvds. Photos via usb or on CD. Excellent value for your money.
  • Very good unit - plays all of my film files via USB as well. Amazing picture and sound quality.
  • Really pleased with my purchase. It looks the part and is easy to operate and great picture quality.
  • This player was easy to setup and use and produces an excellent picture. We are very pleased with it.
  • Thus far I am very pleased with this purchase. I'd bought this player in an attempt to future proof my collection and I'm very pleased so far. Nice, clear imaging on both dvd and blue ray formats.
Samsung BD-J4500R Network Blu-ray DVD Player
  • Excellent in most respects - easy to set up, remarkably good playback quality of all video files tried. It also copes well with blu-ray audio discs and other CD's.
  • This player gives a very good picture on a 50" screen from blu-ray disks and does a great job of up-scaling DVDs.
  • Great little blu ray player! Lovely quality all round, just as I expect from Samsung! Highly recommended!
  • Brilliant quality for a fantastic price. The only thing we're missing is a digital display which you don't really need anyway.
  • A very basic Blu-Ray and DVD player but it does the job. Reasonably compact with a good remote control, the only option for connecting is by HDMI.

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung BD-J4500/XN Blu-Ray player
  • Plays any number of formats without a problem and the pictures great. I plug my hard drive into it so I can watch all my movies and it doesn't have a problem finding any of them
  • The bluray player is great as is the playing of many other formats , would have been perfect if it had Internet connection
  • Also, for some reason, it is not able to read song track titles from purchased CD's. It will only show track number. For the money, this is a great little machine!
  • Very easy to set up. Picture quality is top notch. Need to purchase a HDMI cable but I had a spare, so set up straight out of the box. Very happy.
  • The buttons on the front of the unit are Play, Eject and Power. They're quite small and difficult to distinguish in low light so you'll need to learn what order they are in.
  • The only downside is that it has no on/off light on the front of the unit.
Samsung BD-J4500R Network Blu-ray DVD Player
  • The sound quality is great, but that's nothing to do with the player. That's down to the DACs in my TV which I play through a Hi Fi stereo system.
  • Its lack of features are of no concern in me. My TV and freesat STB provide all the internet apps I need, and I have installed the player in a cabinet where it is hidden from view, so the lack of a front display panel is no problem.
  • Works very well and has played every DVD I've put in it - new or old.
  • Fantastic, and for the price and amazing deal. There are so many cool features on this DVD and the quality is superb, I recommend it wholeheartedly.
  • Superb unit for the price. The only downside is no power indicator on the unit.
  • The one minor drawback is that the USB port can only read moderately sized sticks (up to 64MB?), external hard drives being too large.
