We tried our hands on Samsung BD-F5100 and we would like to share our detailed review here.


Flimsy Built

A closer look of the device was not that great as it gives a flimsy and fragile look, but the stylish round edges of the device make up for the weakness in its physical structure. We would call it an average external design.

Breakable Disc Tray

The plastic disc tray looks very frail and feeble. Considering the fact that disc tray is used more often than any other part of the Blu-Ray player, it is expected of the tray to be strong enough with good support to handle heavy usage. However, in this case the quality of the tray is not up to mark.


Samsung BD-F5100 has well designed touch pad. The user experience with the buttons however, is not that great. A single touch often results in multiple touches and hence is a bit of issue to play a disc smoothly. Although using remote can solve this problem, however talking of the basic design it is a practical weakness to note.

HDMI output

Samsung BD-F5100 is designed to support the High End TV systems, so the HDMI output port is included. However, the device does not come with a cable included in its price and you will have to buy it separately.


Due to its support for High Definition video, an HDMI port is available in the device. However, there is no HDMI cable included with the device, which is somehow a disappointment.

No Wi-Fi

Samsung BD-F5100 has no wifi support which is considered as a major drawback in this device. Many people look for wifi connectivity in their Read More



Simplified Interface

One of the salient features of Samsung BD-F5100 is the ease of use and simplified graphical user interface, which makes it possible to use the device without facing any trouble. In the modern high tech devices having an easy and simplified interface is nothing less than a blessing.

Streaming Apps

Like any of the latest Blu-Ray players, the Samsung BD-F5100 also supports all the major video streaming apps. However the apps has slight problem with running smoothly and often slows down or freezes, however, at this price tag having video streaming apps incorporated is a fair deal in its own and it should not be judged upon the performance of the apps.

Quick Loading Time

Samsung BD-F5100 has a very quick loading time and thus is considered as one of the fastest loading Blu-Ray players. Anyone who has suffered the slow loading times of the old CD or DVD players in past would know the benefits of having a fast loading disc player.

Other Features

Samsung BD-F5100 has a lot of other miscellaneous features as well including up-conversion of DVD to 1080 High Definition. The Blu-ray player also supports all the earlier formats including DVD-Video, DVD±R/RW, CD-R/RW and CD-DA.
