Far better picture quality than the PS3, just turn up the sharpness setting a little and all the little details pop out at you that I never saw on the PS3. It literally felt like I had bought a new TV there was so much more detail, real detail not just over-sharpening. G-Force was so underwhelming on the PS3 after watching it in 3D at the cinema, but it felt almost 3D again on the Samsung.

Plays DivX, XVID and many MKV files (does have problems if they have more than one audio track, just needs remuxing on the PC to remove the extra tracks) from USB, DVD or over the network (seems to have more problems with formats playing over network so not really used it much). Supposedly can play WMV9 but I haven't found any that work, but I rarely use them anyway and can always use the Xbox for those.

The only reason I do not rate this 5 star is the Samsung Apps are far behind schedule and no word from Samsung as to what is going on. Facebook suddenly auto-downloaded after I installed the latest firmware update to which I thought "cool" but all that happens when I launch it is a message saying "Coming in April". A similar situation with Lovefilm, it states "Coming in May", despite the fact its already available on their TVs. Not cool Samsung, not cool at all considering these features were a major selling point of this model over the older ones. Even worse is that everywhere seems to be claiming this player has BBC iPlayer yet Samsung has not even announced a date for it yet. Bearing in mind the apps that have supposed to have launched already still not actually working, I fear we might not actually see iPlayer until the end of the year.

Another silly decision is that the YouTube app seems to only work in SD mode so looks dreadful if you put it into full screen.

Having owned the BD-C6500 for 2 weeks now, I thought I would offer my opinions on the unit.
Firstly, the unit unit arrived well packaged and on removing it from the box, was more than happy with the build quality, having a beautiful matt black, brushed aluminium front panel.
When switched on, the player's illuminations are white which look good. There is an option to illuminate the blu ray logo on top of the unit too, which aesthetically is very nice. A range of eco functions regarding the illuminations are also present.
On initial hook up and plugging in, all went well. I was able to connect to my wireless router and access the internet via the player to update the firmware(without an additional dongle, WIFI is built in), which went without a hitch.

I bought this BD player to pair with a Samsung LE40C652 LCD TV, via the 'Anynet+' feature offered by this manufacturer.
These features work well with my Samsung TV. However, whilst the BD remote will allow you to turn on the TV and adjust the volume, beyond this confusion arises as the remotes for these devices are very similar with similarly named buttons on each. However, in most cases these control the respective functions of each device, so it is not a universal compatibility as I had previously understood. In other words, you still require both remotes unfortunately.

Playback wise, the quality is fine. I have noticed slight stuttering from time to time on playback, which I presume is just data being read from the disk. It's no biggy, but does mean that playback is not perfect 100% of the time. I have not noticed this anomaly on the few occasions I've used a Sony PS3 for playback but have spotted it on an earlier Samsung unit, so this is by no means unique to the BD-C6500.

Verified Purchase
Update: 7/11/12. fails to boot up, have to turn on off 3 or 4 time to get it to work.

Very Good player, but the wireless set up could drive you insane -
Setting up the wifi to connect to my router was the WORST experience of my wifi life.
I could set up wired connection with no problems but the wifi! I could only get it to work with no security set or with WEP only. After some research on line, I found that I may have been lucky to get this far.
If you are not technical, don't know the way round the setting of your router, don't have access to good technical support for your router,then you will end up depending completely on Samsung "Technical" support then God have mercy on your soul! The Samsung "Technical" support are a joke! Words (not English anyway) cannot describe the ineptitude of these people. I have a Samsung netbook which worked fine on my router with security but Samsung say it my router! They kept asking if I wanted to contect the bluray player to my TV via wifi - WHAT!
The CNET forums seem to be the best (and only) source to guide you towards the light on this issue.
If you are one of the lucky ones whose wireless works in a snap, take a moment of silence to pray for the souls of those poor people who are grappling with this issue and post how you did it on a web site .
Internet@TV. Don't be fooled, if you buying this player for the Samsung apps there are only 16. Most are games which are on a par with a zx spectrum, you do get facebook and twiter and google maps, but no BBCiplayer, current apps are: YouTube, Picasa Web Albums, Facebook,, google maps, Rovi TV listings, AccuWeather, Dracula's Coffin, GettyImages, History channel, LoveFilm.com(app say Coming soon), Mahjong Fruits, Memory Quizz Master, Rock Swap Sudoko, Texas Hold'em, Twitter, USA Today
