I brought this player as I thought it would be the same quality as my Samsung 46inch LCD which I am very happy with.
Wrong! I played one Bluray and the unit broke down with a disk load error. (typical for this unit). I handed the unit back to the store and purchased the next model up BD-D7000 and to my surprise this also broke after watching 4 films. The unit stopped loading DVD's. Not happy.
Features on the 6500 are good when it works but is VERY slow to power up and play discs.
I have now purchased the Sony BDP-S780 and am very pleased with it. Same features as the samsung + more (iphone remote control, Skype, e.t.c.) menu system is better and so much more faster than the Samsung, boot up, load and play times are over twice as fast as the samsung equivalent.
I would tell people to stay clear of the Samsung units. Shame as I am a fan of Samsung products
