I was informed by a Samsung agent today that neither the top of the line BD-E6500 bluray player nor any of this year's bluray players will support 2D to 3D conversion

I guess they decided their whole disc to digital function was more important. This sucks and I thought some other people might like to know. I have an E6500 arriving today sometime and will let you guys know for sure

Edit: I posted some initial impressions of the BD-E6500 in the Blu Ray Players Forum

the 2011 BD-D6700, all 2011 3D Panasonic, and if I'm not mistaken, all 2012 3D pansonic players can do the conversion. Samsung generally makes wonky blu-ray players anyway - try a Panasonic.

ht Panasonic TC-P60ZT60, Monitor Audio: Silver RX6, RX Centre, Radius 90HD; Martinlogan Dynamo 700, Marantz SR5006, PS3, Oppo BDP-103D
2ch Marantz PM8004, Sony BDP-S1000ES, JVC T-X3 tuner, Monitor Audio Silver RX1, REL T3, Apple TV, Peachtree Audio DAC•iT
lr Panasonic 50ST60, Sony BDP-S5100

My whole setup has been Samsung since the 2010 "c" models...but...I might just do that

The samsung tv's will do the 2d-3d conversion. There is no need for a blu ray player to do this anyway when the tv's do it. Also you cannot use 2d- 3d on a non 3d tv anyway so why have them both do it ?

god bless

So what you are saying is, my Samsung PN64D8000 has 2D-3D conversion?I can watch a 2D blu ray movie in the player that DOESNT have 2D-3D conversion?

Just because someone has a Samsung Blu-ray player doesn't mean they automatically also have a Samsung HDTV.

Unfortunately, Panasonic's 2D-to-3D conversion is terrible. All it does is make the entire flat 2D picture look like it's inset a couple of inches back from the TV frame.

Actually no, the difference in 2D-3D conversion on the 2011 D8000 3D LED TV and the 2011 BD-D6700 was night and day. Everyone I've ever talked to knows that the blu ray players did a much much better job converting 2D-3D. Moreover, the 2011 Samsung conversion on the BD players was among the best period, rivaling even 3D Bee converters in some people's opinions

So you're basically saying that the new 2012 Samsung Tv's have a much improved conversion process? Because it just wasn't that good last year, not compared to other products out there including their own bluray player line. I'd have to see where you're getting your information first, and secondly see it myself and at least compare it to D6700

Go to Amazon and read up on my review of the BD-E6500 (which I would not recommened over the higher end 2011 Samsung BD-players)

That's what I heard as well. As great as it was on the Samsung blu ray player line last year, they really dropped the ball on not delivering it at all this year on their BD player line
