Samsung BD-C6900 review:

 

It seems like as soon as Blu-ray became a definitively mainstream home theater format, manufacturers scrambled to find a new format to charge extra for-- 3D . Samsung's BD-C6900 ($360 street price) is the first 3D Blu-ray player we've reviewed so far,...

3D Blu-ray compatibility; excellent Blu-ray image quality; Netflix, Vudu, YouTube and Pandora media streaming, plus the expandable Samsung Apps platform; built-in Wi-Fi; very fast operational speed; 7.1 analog outputs; 1GB onboard storage.

3D price premium is high; buttons on top of the player are inconvenient; last year's Samsung Blu-ray players had reliability issues.

The Samsung BD-C6900 has excellent Blu-ray performance and is loaded with features, but you pay a lot for the 3D functionality.

EH Buyer's Scorecard: Samsung BD-C6900 Blu-ray 3D Player

 

A closer look at the 3D-enhanced high-def player, from in-house and around the web.

Being a first-gen product is tough, so we’d expect Samsung’s BD-C6900 to have its issues. That said, the C6900 rates very well, even though the reviews are a bit of a mixed bag as far as image is concerned. Some also admit that the issues could have...

Samsung BD-C6900 Blu-ray 3D Player

 

To 3D or not to 3D, that is the question. Sorry to go Shakespeare on you, but I'm skeptical as to whether 3D is the next big thing on the horizon. Samsung is one of the major players vying for your 3D dollar, and I have to give the company credit for...

With the smashing success of Avatar, Hollywood is convinced 3D will drive people to the theaters in droves. And with the boxoffice returns for Alice in Wonderland, How to Train Your Dragon, and Clash of the Titans, they are onto something. Will this...

Samsung BD-C6900 3D Blu-ray Player Reviewed

 

Samsung is one of the first companies to introduce a 3D-capable Blu-ray player, in the form of the new BD-C6900 ($399.99). The company's new top-shelf player also includes built-in WiFi, DLNA streaming, Samsung Apps, and multichannel analog audio...

The BD-C6900 supports 3D playback, when mated with other 3D-capable components ; The BD-C6900 supports 1080p/24 playback of Blu-ray discs ; The player has internal decoding and bitstream output of high-resolution audio sources, and it has multichannel...

The BD-C6900 uses HDMI 1.3, not 1.4. HDMI 1.3 will support 3D playback, but it only supports transmission of a 1080i signal for each eye. HDMI v1.4 can support 1080p for each eye. [UPDATE 4/29/10: This is incorrect. A Samsung product manager confirms...

Obviously, 3D capability is the BD-C6900's marquee feature and will ultimately dictate whether or not you purchase this player. Sure, it's loaded with other worthwhile Blu-ray features--like multichannel outputs, built-in WiFi, DLNA media streaming,...

Samsung BD-C6900

 

The Samsung BD-C6900 may be at the bottom of our list, but that's because it has some pretty awesome players competing with it. If you look at the side-by-side matrix we've created comparing all of this type of players on the market, you'll see that...

It is the smallest player on the market, weighing 3.8lbs

It doesn’t playback MP3 files

We’d choose one of our top three ranked products over the Samsung BD-C6900.
