The Samsung BD-D6700 sports dual HDMI outputs, built-in Wi-Fi, and one of the most extensive suites of streaming video services in comparable Blu-ray players this year, including Netflix, Hulu Plus, MLB.TV, Vudu and CinemaNow. Its 1GB of onboard memory...

It's tough to justify the BD-D6700's high price, especially with the Sony PS3 being available for only slightly more. And while the dual HDMI outputs are nice, most buyers that need them will be just as satisfied with a player with a single HDMI output...

The Samsung BD-D6700 is an excellent all-around Blu-ray player with dual HDMI outputs, but for most buyers its upgrades won't justify its high price.

Samsung BD-D6700 Blu-ray 3D Player

 

Blu-ray players just aren't what they used to be—they're a lot more. Sony's PlayStation 3 has long offered more than just standard Blu-ray playback. Today's breed of players bring not only state-of-the-art Blu-ray performance but also connectivity to...

While it may look a little unassuming, Samsung’s BD-D6700 packs more entertainment in its little package than just about any player I’ve used. The streaming capabilities are second to none, and Samsung has done some great things to make finding what...

Today's consumer electronics are doing more and more for less. Technologies are crossing platforms and convergence is the new mantra. The Samsung BD-D6700 is a case in point. It is first and foremost a blu-ray player. But it also comes with an...

The Samsung BD-D6700 is second from the top in Samsung’s 2011 lineup. It is more than qualified to hold the fort with such a splendid performance.  Coupled with a bevy of interactive content options it will provide you with hours of non stop...

"Blu-ray Player that doesn't play Blu-rays."

 

I may not know enough to provide a thorough review of this product but I know that this Blu-ray player doesn't play Blu-rays. I confirmed with Samsung tech support that the device was updated with the most current firmware and that they were aware of...

As a novice tech person I agree with the CNET review in that most of the features that make this player special are above and beyond what the average user require.

The player's out of date firmware prevent it from playing many movies. In the first 4 weeks I came across 4 movies from Netflix that wouldn't play. I connected the device to my wi-fi network and had playback issues each time I tried to watch a movie.

"Will not play new blu ray disks, model needs update."

 

Update the firmware already Samsung!!!! I'm returning this and buying something that works. This model came highly recommended, and for this price it should at the very least play a blu ray disk.

Internet connectivity, ease of use for disks that will play

You will want to throw this piece of crap against the wall the third time you buy an unplayable disk. Chances are 50-50 that any new blu ray disk you buy will not be playable on this lemon. No firmware update available.

Very good player overall

 

I have replaced my noisy Panasonic DMP-BDT210 with a Samsung BD-6500 and I am very satisfied with that unit. It has good selection of streaming service, connects to facebook and twitter. Has also apps you can download. DLNA (Samsung AllShare) works...

Very stylish unit ; Fast load time ; Great interface ; Great iPhone App ; Easy to setup ; Great wi-fi connectivity

DVD up-conversion could be a bit better ; Interface navigation a bit slow ; Need USB port in the back or a SDHC slot ; Found that it is sometimes unresponsive when waking up from standby mode

"Defective firmware."

 

Quirky defective system for playing Blu-Ray discs otherwise it ran perfectly. This one's going back... After all it is primarily a disc player and it can't play the discs.

Wi Fi connection seamless, Great Apps, Hub system to access Apps very user friendly. Plays non Blu-Ray DVDs perfectly. Netflix, Hulu, Pandora all perfect streams.

Installed this unit, brand new, one week ago. We played one Blu-Ray DVD and the player would not play it again or any other Blu-Ray DVD? Firmware could not ID or play ANY Blu-Ray DVDs after the first one was played? It must be a defect in the firmware o
