"Excellent image quality, sub standard networking."2.5 starson by ramon65
Pros: Very good image quality, great quality up converting DVD too, fast loading times and start up, multichannel analog outputs.
Cons: Home network streaming is primitive , MKV is not supported over LAN connection, only USB and disc, since only FAT partitions are supported you are max at 4 GB files when using USB external drives. Expensive for what it offer.
Summary: Most people won't buy this player cause of the 3D feature, it is still several years more for 3D to become mainstream if it ever does, not to many can afford a price of entry of around tree thousand to watch one available title, although more titles will be available at a latter time movie studios are very picky about releasing titles early in a new format, even Blu-ray is still catching up although it is ubiquitous by now. 3D is not expensive to implement, Sony will include it on a $200 player and even upgrade the PS3 to it, LG wont give you 3D but offer better home network integration with great streaming over the web too and more options, all for half the price of this player, it also includes NTFS support and similar picture quality, the BD-C6900 have a very nice design but unless you like to show off once you throw it on a cabinet you'll hardly see it anymore, Samsung is very speedy offering firmware updates to improve compatibility of new titles, and by my experience with previous products quality is generally good, but at $400 this player should be everything but the kitchen sink, by omitting NTFS support and limiting MKV to USB or Disc Samsung handicapped it's flagship BD player enough not to recommend it when you can get those features at half the price. The general trend is to centralize your media in a home server and access it from wherever you like. It is good to have wireless networking but anyways it is standard now on any $250 player so it is not a big deal anymore. Samsung used to provide high quality products at good prices but it looks like they are flying high now on their laurels, they better get their feet back to earth before it is too late!
