Samsung is a good name. I love my Samsung HD TV, but the Samsung Blu-Ray player I got about 4 months ago has the worst software of any consumer device I can remember.
It plays discs OK, but the streaming software is incredibly buggy and ridiculously slow. It usually takes 10-15 seconds to load a program (such as Netflix), the menus don't render right always, the thing locks up distressingly often. They've updated the firmware a few times but nothing ever seems to change. Oh, and it doesn't do Amazon.
On some Netflix shows the screen constantly switches back and forth between aspect ratios, which is maddening. I finally got so fed up I bought a Roku, which works ten times better, and just use the Samsung for discs.
Can't say this model is the same, but I'd be wary.
