  • Summary: There are too many flaws and Samsung are not interested in helping at all. When I got mine (not from Amazon) the remote would not even operate my 2 year old Panasonic TV! Buy something by another manufacturer.

It records things

Mr. A. J. Pearson, Amazon

  • Summary: It records all the things. The interface is easy to use and recordings include subtitles and audio description. The option to record entire series is a bonus. After one week, my HDD had 3Gb of Family Guy and Doctor Who.

The Samsung BD-D8500 is of the worst products I've purchased...

hollymich..., Ciao
26 August 2012
  • Excerpt: I was really excited to get this player...it has a lot of features I wanted, and others that weren't on my "must have" list, but seemed like great perks. The biggest problem I have with the unit, making it almost unusable, is the lag...if we're watching something on netflix, sometimes it buffers almost constantly. It uses way too much bandwidth. I have great speed with my internet, and have had no problems with anything until this unit was added into the mix.
  • Pros: easy to understand menus, great picture
  • Cons: lags, broken apps, uses a lot of bandwidth

Great value & does what it says on the tin!

CC "creativecog", Amazon

  • Summary: Owning many Samsung products - TV`s, phones & computer screens - I`m yet to have a bad experience, with every product delighting. Having read the fairly mixed reviews here, i was a little torn - but the product was the only one I could find that matched my requirements the closest. After 6 months - another joyful Samsung product... only thing I haven't tried is 2D > 3D - but everything else this machine does hits the nail on the head. HD - amazing picture...

Great range of features, poor delivery

papalazarou, Amazon

  • Summary: Dual HD tuner - good, Wireless 2.4Ghz or 5ghz to link to home router good, playback good, Blueray great, price competitive, 500g HD storage brilliant. I went from a basic dvd player to a promise of everything I could possibly need for the integrated home entertainment experience I had dreamt about. Niggles: 1. I expected to be able to watch TV I recorded on say my notebook - You can't with any of Samung productd I have been told. 2.

Good at some things, awful at others

JC "big_jc_ey", Amazon

  • Summary: As other people have mentioned this machine is very buggy, particularly around recording programmes or the way it "pops" everytime you move from a Freeview HD channel to a normal SD channel. What is really annoying is that it supports DLNA and can find content on my PC, media player, etc. BUT it will not allow you to see/send recorded TV programmes via DLNA so I cannot access anything I've recorded on the Samsung via DLNA which was one of the main reasons I bought it.
