Samsung BD-D6500 Blu-ray Player

 

One of the major differentiations between Blu-ray players now has been their online content support. With more and more people getting their movies and TV shows from Netflix, Hulu, and other sources, the ability to access all of these easily from one...

Though the SmartHub feature in its current state underwhelmed me, I was overall a fan of the BD-D6500 Blu-ray player. It did well on our benchmark, had good colorspace decoding over HDMI in YCbCr mode, and has a plethora of online content available....

Playing 'Smarter' with the Samsung BD-D6500 3D Blu-ray player

 

When Samsung first approached us about doing a review of the BD-D6500, I was very excited about the fact that here was a Blu-Ray player with built-in Wi-Fi connectability. The stars in my eyes forsaw a possible replacement for my big, bulky media PC --...

Not able to easily connect/share with other network PC's;, Limited content available in Canada;, Only cable provided is for 2 ch stereo and composite video.

A DVD player & SO much more. We wanted cinema standard for our home with a few extra's and we got exactly that. It was very easy to set up and the picture & sound quality is amazing. The fact that this model upscales our old DVD's to Blu Ray is great...

Stunning image quality. SmartHub is excellent. No problems connecting via WiFi. Remote controls has glow-in-the-dark disc control buttons.

Blue Ray discs can be slow to load but I beleive that is common for the format.
