Samsung BD-H5900 Review

 

Like most entry-level 3D Blu-ray players, the Samsung BD-H5900's hardware limitations keep it a distance from the best 3D Blu-ray players. These top-of-the-line players commonly sport features like 2D conversion and 4K support, which can be used on...

The Samsung benefits from a strong suite of software options, with apps from outlets like Netflix and YouTube.

The player lacks premium playback features like 4K and 2D conversion support.

The Samsung BD-H5900 has the design and feature versatility to be a useful part of your home theater setup.

Update on my previous review

 

Appears Samsung's quality control is dropping at an alarming rate. I own several Samsung products and thought about investing in one of their newer TVs. I doubt very seriously I will now

Still faster than my old Panasonic in load time

After warranty repair - does not play regular DVD's ; I so hate wasting my time, energy and money, not to say this particular product cost me a bundle, but it's the principal
