Quick Review: Samsung BD-C6500 Blu-ray Player - Quick Review: Samsung BD-C6500 Blu-ray Player
Wed, August 11 2010 | 9:03AM | PermaLink Feedback?
"The Samsung BD-C6500 Blu-ray player is the midrange model in their product line, offering built-in wireless support, but no 3D playback. In a market crowded with set-top players, console systems and even HTPCs, how does the C6500 compare? - The C6500 also supports a wired Ethernet connection or Wi-Fi over 802.11g/n. 802.11g-based routers work just fine, but N-based routers are a bit faster in establishing a connection. Typing out any kind of complicated wireless passcode can be a pain using the remote, but you only have to do it once until you reset the player. In our modern world, media comes in all kinds of different formats. There’s DVD, Xvid, Blu-ray, MKV, WMV, iTunes, Netflix and so on. It’s not like the VHS days, where you basically watched your entertainment on that format and that’s all there was. Anything capable of playing digital media in 2010 (and beyond) needs to support a wide variety of formats. This is where the C6500 does an admirable job. Plugging in a 1 TB external hard drive (using the NTFS file system), I was able to play a remarkable number of different file formats with ease, including the ubiquitous Xvid and MKV formats."
