"Constant problems!"on by jiminOH
Cons See above, I've had so many issues over the last 8 months, and spent a lot of time researching, calling (both Samsung & Netflix), and it still has issues!
Summary Bought a new entertainment pkg from 'Worst Buy' to include the D6500 Blue Ray and a Samsung flatscreen. I have had nothing but problems with the Blue Ray. Netflix promblems have included "Netflix not available, try again later", Lost connection, and rebuffering issues. I took it back to Worst Buy twice (once they sent it in to replace the 'mother board'?). Every time I try a new 'fix' it causes another technical issue. You would think, since the BlueRay and the TV are the same maker (any newer), that it would be more 'plug and pay'-NOPE- continuous issues is making me want to throw the D6500 away. Advise- always buy the Black Tie coverage for any BestBuy product! Maybe I just got a 'bad unit', but the errors I continue to rec'v are very common upon researching. You'd think they would address these issues with firmware updates- NOPE.
Pros All the streaming services, great integration with my Samsung plasma tv, and has played everything I've put in it so far. No physical buttons to get broken, one USB port.
Cons ONE usb port which is located under a flip panel on the front of the device.
painfully slow loading time on Blu-Ray discs.
Netflix loads slowly. Most of the time will only load a handful of icons for me.
wifi is iffy at best.
netflix wont load images
Summary With the poor wifi, slow bd speeds, weak netflix app functionality, and poor placement of the usb port, in conjunction with price, i'm thinking of taking it back soon.
"Awesome!!!"on by acmesinc
Pros You cant go wrong if it is a Samsung...
Cons so far so good
Pros Great Picture and decent 3D
Cons 3D price premium is high; buttons on top of the player are inconvenient; last year's Samsung Blu-ray players had reliability issues.
Summary I bought this so I can watch my Home and Away episodes from the USB Flash Drive on my 3D TV in 3D.
Pros stylish design, great connectivity, picture quality, short loading time..
Cons so far... nothing
Summary It lets me connect to various contents easily, that's what I like most.
I love stylish design and great connectivity to networks and the picture quality is awesome.
