Samsung BD-D6500 Blu-ray Player


One of the major differentiations between Blu-ray players now has been their online content support.

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....

Samsung BD-D6500


Samsung's BD-D6500 is classified as a mid-level Blu-ray player, but it is so feature rich, you'd think it was one of the company's high-end players. That's the funny thing about raising the bar year after year on a technology that some say has yet to...

Super-slim design with slot-loading mechanism ; Touch-sensitive controls ; Streams most video file types ; Built-in Wi-Fi streams HD content well

Sluggish navigation and controls ; SmartHub deletes apps during updates but doesn’t replace

Samsung’s BD-D6500’s quick loading time, quiet operation and sleek design make it a value for its asking price...for now.

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 --...

Small, compact and light;, Plays just about any type of video disc;, Internet capable, via wired or wireless (b, g, n) LAN.

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.

Samsung BD-D6500


3D is becoming more ubiquitous and this once high end technology is beginning to filter down to mid-priced and entry level models. The 2011 Samsung BD-D6500 is one such player.

The Samsung BD-D6500 is a major improvement from the older model. Shortcomings such as slow load times have been eradicated and new features like 3D playback and better graphic performance make it a significant step forward for Samsung. If you already...

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.
