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
25 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!

Great range of features, poor delivery

papalazarou, Amazon
11 November 2011
  • 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.

It records things

Mr. A. J. Pearson, Amazon
11 November 2011
  • 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.
