Samsung BD-C8900 review

 

The high-end Samsung BD-C8900 Blu-ray player has built-in Wi-Fi and is capable of playing 3D Blu-ray movies. It shares many of the same features as the excellent Samsung BD-C6900 - with the added benefit of a 500GB hard drive and DVB-T digital TV tuner.

All in all, the Samsung BD-C8900 is an excellent 3D Blu-ray player with good PVR functionality. While a little on the steep side, it's one of the only ways to record 3D television - which is sure to appear more frequently in the future.
