Samsung BD-C6500 review

 

If we were going to mark this player on features alone, then it would get top marks – but the sound and vision here are sadly well below par

Thorough specification includes integrated wi-fi ; decent colours ; reasonably detailed images

Pictures hindered by noise ; not the most gifted at motion handling ; bright, aggressive sound

You can’t complain about the price or the features on offer, but picture and sound quality are both below par

Samsung BD-C6500 review

 

Almost any way you look at it, the Samsung BD-C6500 is a first-rate Blu-ray player. The picture quality is among the best we've seen to date, it has audio options that are particularly friendly to older home theatre surround-sound systems, and it...

A few annoying design quirks can’t take the shine out of the otherwise excellent, reasonably priced Samsung BD-C6500.

Samsung BD-C6500 review

 

Now that Wi-Fi and extensive support for streaming media services like Netflix has become commonplace on midrange Blu-ray players, manufacturers have struggled to find ways to stand out from the pack. Samsung's differentiating feature on the BD-C6500's...

Excellent Blu-ray image quality; Netflix, Vudu, YouTube, and Pandora media streaming, plus the expandable Samsung Apps platform; built-in Wi-Fi; 7.1 analog audio outputs; 1GB onboard storage.

Sluggish operational speed; competing Sony players offer 3D for about the same price; last year's Samsung Blu-ray players had questionable reliability.

Samsung's BD-C6500 Blu-ray player has excellent image quality, outstanding features for the price, and a slick design--we just wish it were a little faster.

Review of Samsung BD-C6500 blu ray player

 

Good Points: Slim and stylish with a substantial and well designed remote control. The on screen icons help locate the special features which include online widgets like access to YouTube. The built in WiFi allows a wireless connection to the internet....

The picture is very slightly affected by film grain. The unit feels a little flimsy

Samsung BD-C6500 review: a feature-packed Blu-ray player with superb video quality

Superb image quality, excellent selection of Internet services, audio reencode for older surround receivers, great-looking menus

Nonresponsive front-panel buttons, info button not useful

A few annoying design quirks can’t take the shine out of the otherwise excellent, reasonably priced Samsung BD-C6500.

Samsung BD-C6500

 

There's a lot to like about Samsung's BD-C6500, from its reasonable $249.99 (list) price to its wealth of Web apps and widgets, and excellent HD picture quality. Throw in integrated Wi-Fi, lots of A/V ports, 1GB of internal memory, and a cleverly...

Top-notch HD image quality. Robust selection of Web features including games. Includes 1GB of internal memory. Eight analog outputs for connecting to a 7.1 surround sound system. Supports DLNA

Some SD-upconversion artifacts. Limited front panel controls

Samsung's BD-C6500 offers more interactive and connectivity features than other Blu-ray players in its class, and it delivers stunning high-definition picture quality.
