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....

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.

Great looking product at a good price

 

Easy set-up. I had ordered another brand that failed to work out of the box. I exchanged that unit for this one and am glad I did. This blu-ray unit is quiet, sleek, and works great too.

How can anyone not like this deal

 

Thin and price friendly player. It is a good looking unit and fit perfectly in my closet. Was worried about heat with all my electronics in same spot. The player didn't turn into an inferno like other players and units that I have. Not having a big...
