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'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.

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...

simply recommend it!

 

It lets me connect to various contents easily, that's what I like most. I love stylish design and great connectivity to networks and the picture quality is awesome.

stylish design, great connectivity, picture quality, short loading time

An excellent little 3D Bluray Player

 

I bought this so I can watch my Home and Away episodes from the USB Flash Drive on my 3D TV in 3D.

Great Picture and decent 3D

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

Samsung's the Man

 

One of my favorite things on this model is that I integrate my videos, photos right from my laptop. That is awesome. I was planning on buying a long HDMI cable to connect my laptop to my TV so that I could watch movies from my laptop to my TV ......

After many model reviews, this one is hand down. I truly love the picture quality. I have it connected using RCA connection and it still looks awesome. I will get an HDMI cable to improve the picture quality. I especially enjoy all of its features. I

The only thing I don't like to do is having to use the numeric/alpha pad on the screen with the remote. It takes too long for me to get the codes entered, but I think as I go I will improve on its key entry

Good but just a pretty face

 

A good product but if you don't need it to show your family pictures and accessing your Home sever network I had difficult time setting up. Samsung should fix their software. I have called Samsung tech support 4 times and they responded quickly but...

Good but not perfect..it has a very good video excellent colors, fine detail touch control on the unit ; Fast upload of video. It does not have a web browser like Sony Bluray

Poor connectivity. Allshare does not work when you have a Home server.. it will see the files but will not play it ; all files does not run .. it will say files are not supported. AVI , MP3 will not play .. So as your family pictures and home video on...

Great reliability

 

Best Blu-ray player for someone that wants a player that works every time you turn it on. It has a great picture, goes into operation quickly, and has a small footprint.

Great reliability, speed of operation, and picture

Nothing. Perfect Player
