Samsung M5 User Review

    Samsung M5 does not work
    Review of Samsung M5 hi-fi speaker by Codswallop, Oct 29, 2014.
    I got this speaker and hub free with a Samsung TV - and being moderately geeky was really looking forward to getting it set up and using it. Set up was easy - wifi to the hub, Ethernet to my Virgin Router. However, then it becomes unusable - I have an iphone running IOS7 and the app can't find any music. I also use Spotify, and like the previous reviewer - also found that it will not cast to the speaker it just plays on my phone. I have music stored on a NAS drive, which the app cannot find. I tried to use the PC application - which won't run on Windows at all that I can tell although I have studiously downloaded the Windows version twice and updated my PC with all the latest updates. The only thing I can make this speaker do is play radio - and I already had a radio.
    I'm glad I did not pay for this, it is just pretty junk.
    This item was purchased for Free with Samsung UH from Currys in 2014. The reviewer still owns this product.

      Did you ever try again? I have an M5 and an M3, and both work brilliantly with Spotify and Deezer, as well as streaming from my (admittedly Android) phone.

      If you're still not bothered and want to unload it, let me know! ;-)
