DO NOT BUY!

SAC, Amazon
9 August 2014
  • 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.

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..
  • Pros: easy to understand menus, great picture
  • Cons: lags, broken apps, uses a lot of bandwidth

Great hardware let down by rubbish software

Bob T "Bob T", Amazon
1 February 2012
  • Summary: I have had this for two months now. At first it was great. It does everything it says it does. Connects to wi-fi. Plays Blurays etc... BUT.... the software is pants and getting worse... 1. Unit seems to reboot at random times. 2. No search on the EPG 3.

Shocking product for the price

lindyloo, Amazon
22 January 2012
  • Summary: Shocking product for the price and terrible technical support from Samsung. Having purchased this seemingly ideal box as a present for my husband it has been nothing but troublesome. The first one we had packed up after 3months, no video output to the TV!

Samsung recorder

FarehamMike, Amazon
17 November 2011
  • Summary: Generally pleased, however this unit does not record two channels at the same time. My old Sony did. Shame because you can normally record two channels and watch a third using the TV tuner. The menu system is not the best.. a lot of button pressing before you get to where you need to be.

A disaster so far

M. N. Walsh, Amazon
17 November 2011
  • Summary: This is a review of the Nordic model which (BD-D8500N) seems to be for the Norwegian; Swedish; Danish and (mine) Finnish market. Otherwise it's the same. This is an HD tuner so it needs a CI+ CAM module around your old (or new) "credit card" with sim.
