Gadget of the Week: Episode #8


Last weekend, I gave my dad an early Father’s Day gift. He bought an HD TV last year . . . this Samsung. But it’s not a smart TV, so he can’t get Netflix on it.

So I bought him the Samsung BD-F5700 Wi-Fi Blue-Ray DVD player which has wi-fi built in.

I also got him a Sony sound bar.

It didn’t take long for me to hook it all up. Now he has a complete home theater. And he loves it.

If you have an HD TV that’s not a smart TV, I recommend the Samsung BD-F5700 Wi-Fi Blue-Ray DVD player.

If you need a whole new system, then I recommend this one. It’s what I have in my own home, and it’s awesome.

    Often I find that these smart devices come with no parental controls. So bringing them into your house is like bringing in an endless stream of pornography, violence, and secular teachings that have no place in a Christian’s home.
    Does this DVD player have parental controls to lock out netflix, youtube, and the other internet content? How about the related TV you mention?.

      Parents can monitor what their children watch on Netflix. All previous shows are listed so you can keep check on this. There is also a Web program called K9 that’s free that will control what one sees on Youtube and anywhere else on the Web. These things have been in place for a long time. But nothing can take the place of vigilant parents. If you have a cable service, they usually have parent controls also with respect to channels.
