Can get both locally. 7500 is just under 200. 6500 about 140.

7500's are getting thin. Amazon doesn't have them. Local Fry's electronics does.

Hard to decide. It is these Samsung's or Sony's 6200. Everything else been eliminated.
Same issue here. Did you ever decide which one is better?

Do they both have the Samsung smarthub where you can add apps? which one has a better faster processor?

BestBuy has the BDF-7500 for $139.99 and the BDH-6500 for $159.99

Thanks

Answer: The BD-F7500

Do both support the same formats including DTS-HD Master Audio ?

Answer: Yes

Do both have the Samsung smart hub where you can add apps?

Answer: Yes

Which has the faster processor?

Answer: Not provided in the specs but if one was faster than the other, my guess would be that it would be in their flagship BD-F7500.

What really sets the 7500 worlds away from the 6500 is the inclusion of dual HDMI ports that can come in really handy. For example, you can run one to your TV and the other to your receiver. And check out the weight of the 7500 - 4.4 lbs versus 1.1 lbs.

Here are links to Samsung's site for each.

BD-F7500
http://www.samsung.com/us/video/blu-ray-dvd/BD-F7500/ZA

Interesting that the prices you quote has Best Buy selling the BD-F6500 for a cheaper price than the flagship BD-F7500. If you check the Samsung site you'll see the BD-F7500 is the more expensive of the two.

Snap that BD-F7500 up. That's a bargain!

Yup, $250 now ... just because we were talking about it. ...No more talk* and the price will go back down where it was.

Samsung is listening (reading) and uses the info as their price stratagem.

Although you can't turn it off completely (unless the unit is turned off obviously) you can control it as follows.

Menu >> System >> General >> Front Display

The following settings are availabe:

Auto = Dim during playback and bright any other time.
Dim = Dim the display window at all times.
Bright = Brighten the display window at all times.

I keep mine set to Auto and I can't even tell it's on while a movie is playing. Since the On Screen Menu gives you all the info you are after you could always cover the front display with <GASP> a piece of black electrical tape.

Hmmm, I have no [Menu] button my remote but did find the setting. Turning on my player the startup screen for the BD player comes up on my flat screen and I followed this path: Settings >> System >> General >> Front Display

In any case thanks for the info

Oops. Glad you found it. I have the UN78HU9000 UHD TV and I am so use to typing MENU in front of the path.


Enjoy!
