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

hollymich..., Ciao

  • 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 but slow

Wacky, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great machine. It has freeview hd and plays blue ray and you can record hd to the built in hard drive. It has wifi built in for Internet access. My only complaint is the unit can be slow to use and not as fast to select programmes as the Sky counterpart. Saying that sky is expensive and this is free once purchased.

Great Recorder +BluRay 3D

MacDonald, Amazon
4 July 2011
  • Summary: After buying a cheap HD recorder (from another retailer) that went back after 3 days this Samsung is a relevation. The HD tuner is stable and the picture is great. Recordings are equally good quality and the BluRay (and 3D) playback is faultless. The loading of BluRay discs is fast and playback is quiet with little noise. Amazon delivery was excellent and the price yet again the cheapest on the web.

Paying for convenience

  • Summary: I swapped a DigitalStream DHR8203U PVR for this product, as I couldn't cope with the DigitalStream's poor picture quality relative to my TV tuner's. It also solved my present problem of not having a Blu ray player. I bought it to match my 40" Samsung LED backlit TV, and they work very well together. Setup was very easy. Network detection worked well, although the text input (for passwords, etc.) is rather clumsy. Picture quality from the tuner seems top notch.

Samsung BD-D8500

Böker, Amazon
21 July 2012
  • Summary: Auf der Suche nach einem DVD Recorder mit Kabel BW Tuner, der sowohl Blu-Ray's lesen kann als auch eine Festplatte für das aufzeichnen von Filmen hat, bin ich auf den Samsung Recorder gestoßen. Ich habe viele Kritiken gelesen, die meisten davon eher negativ insbesondere hinsichtlich der Bedienung und Komfort. Nach langer Überlegung habe ich mich entschlossen diesen selber zu testen unabhängig der negativen Meinungen in den Foren.

Klasse Bild

Affenkater "Affenkater", Amazon

  • Summary: Hervoragende Aufnahme- und Wiedergabequalität. Upscalling bei nicht HD-Aufnahmen kommen bei Wiedergabe HD sehr nahe. Die Benutzerführung ist noch akzeptabel. Sie könnte durchaus logischer und intuitiver gestaltete werden. Samsung sollte sich dochmal von Technisat beraten lassen. Sehr störend ist der Abbruch einer Wiedergabe beim Start einer Aufnahme.
