Get the BD-7900 if you have an "older" surround sound system
23 January 2011
Summary: WHAT THEY DON'T TELL YOU: If you have a surround sound system that is 2 to 10 years old, you might not want get this unit. Most people who buy a big TV have a separate surround sound system. Higher end surround sound systems have HDMI inputs for your different equipment (cable box, DVD player, etc.
Summary: Not specific to the player, but the internet services are still pretty Beta. Netflix is reasonably good and my wife and kids use it a ton. But Hulu drops all the time and is a major frustration, Plus not all content available on the compter is available on the TV due to their restrictions.
Pros: Everything as advertised. No problem with machine in first 3 months. Picture is good and wireless internet connect is smooth. Reads disks without any issues. I did a lot of research and still think it is a great high end value.
Cons: As far as the player itself, nothing major. Very minor complaints: menus are a bit clunky, the remote feels cheap, needed to reload a lot of software, and the touch buttons are a bit awkward to use (can't see them when unit is off to use eject). Also, linking up to use files on my PC is a bear; a...
Summary: The unit is easy to set up and fairly intuitive to use. Bought it because of internet Apps. The ones installed are not very helpful, except for Netflix. Other Apps versions require you to pay per view, even though there are related Apps that are free.
Summary: That one gripe aside, I love this Blu-ray player. My last one (Samsung BD-P2500) lasted 2 years. I hope this one outlasts it.
Pros: I'm impressed with the Samsung BD-C6900. I thought I would miss my Samsung BD-P2500 when it died but this is so much better. The upscaling for DVDs and Netflix is fantastic. The Reon chip in my 2500 was great, but the GPU in the 6900 is much more powerful. It eliminates jaggies, separates colors ...
Cons: The default display mode is 3D only and there is no auto-detect for 3D TVs. I discovered this the hard way when I connected the HDMI to my '2D' TV and the display was blank. I had to dig up an analog cable, connect to my TV, set the display mode to 2D, and then connect with HDMI. I know this is a...
Summary: I got this free with a tv purchase and it really is great. Its super small, thin and light. Its made well, not junky plastic like many others. It has a ton of cool blueish lights all over and the play stop ff/rw are touch sensitive so there's no actual button.
Summary: The Good: It has the easiest and best Netflix interface of any BD player I've tried and returned (beats Sony & Visio). I got this model because it was the only BluRay DVD with a Hulu+ App. I like watching current TV programs on Hulu. It boots up superfast when you power it on.
Summary: Excellent player. The picture using DVD, BluRay or Netflix s as good as I can imagine it to be. I was surprised that even on DVD I got a major boost in quality compared to my old DVD player (5 years old?). The Netflix picture is better (!
Received Defective Player - New Player works Great!

Summary: I bought a new Samsung 3D LCD TV and this Blu-Ray player. It initially worked for the first movie play with the Special 3D Disc that came with the glasses. Then I went to watch Avatar (from Netflicks)and about half way though the movie the screen went blue and no more movie playing.
Bluray 3D still new technology and working out bugs
23 October 2010
Summary: Well I must say that this is the best blu ray player I have ever had let a lone the only 3D blu ray player I have. Once downfall I had was that since this is such a new technology that is available on the market there will be some bugs that have not been fully taken care of.
Pros: Great machine, well organized menu's (internet). Saved me from buying new receiver with HDMI because of the 7.1 analog outputs.
Cons: The NETFLIX streaming is not quite there yet. the 6900 test the line speed before playing... but it often pauses and re-test the line. Apparently it assumes to high a speed, or has to small of a buffer. If it test the line and determines it can play HD... it may pause and re-test every 20 or 30 s...
