Opinions on Samsung BD-D7000

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Buying a new blu-ray player. Saw the Samsung on the Cnet CES page. ABT has it for $300. I don't mind splurging if it is worth it. Go big or wait for the prices on last years devices to drop.

What specifically do you want the higher model for?

Mostly about the cool factor, to be honest. Definitely need built in wireless though.

This thing definately looks cool. Doesn't say it streams Netflix yet, but it uses Samsung's Smart TV. I assume Netflix is part of that.

Cnet says:
"The rest of its features are similar to other Blu-ray players the company is releasing in 2011. It's 3D compatible and also has built-in 2D-to-3D conversion processing. Of course, most 3D TVs we've reviewed last year can also convert 2D content to 3D, but it will provide buyers with another option for 2D-to-3D video processing."

The movie industry and film students detest the built in 2D->3D conversion which is also a remote button feature in the BD-D6700. Range war coming!

I just purchased the Samsung bd d7000 bluray player from Fry's. This bluray player really shines. Picture quality is excellent. I watched The Incredibles with my niece and also Avatar and the picture quality is perfect. Loading times are really fast. Not as fast as the PS3 but they are fast enough for you not to notice. Be careful too!!, this unit gets very hot. I mean it. I removed The Incredibles movie after watching it and the disc was really hot, the side of the player was extremely hot too. Never tried the 2D to 3D conversion. Wifi built in, a most for my niece room. And the design is head and shoulders above the competition. Nothing comes close to this state of the art bluray player.

It's not out yet and Fry's has no stock. How'd you get it early? Do you mean the bd-D7500?

I just saw this at my local Fry's. It looks really sleek. An amazingly small footprint...

Mine has been updated to 1013. But I don't know what's different from the previous version.

I ordered the Samsung BD-D7000 a couple weeks back but it hasn't been received/shipped by Amazon yet. I notice a bunch of other sites have them "In-Stock" (Tiger Direct and a few others) but none of the big guys seem to have received them yet. ABT, Amazon, CDW, Best Buy all have them as pre-order.

If you have it, thoughts? I'm debating canceling my order and picking up the BD-D6700.
post #11 of 36
I just picked mine up at PC Richard in Wayne, NJ. You can order on their site with free shipping. I had it on order from ABT since May and didn't want to wait any longer.
Haven't played around with it much but it definitely has the cool factor on startup

Amazon has it now for $269. I have personally heard gd things about it. I would def. skip the 6700.

They had it much cheaper than that for a while... Hopefully it arrives this week.

Just returned the one I bought to a local store (Fry's.) Darn thing players Blu-ray's just fine but would not play any DVD's...
post #15 of 36
This unit is great. The load time is super fast and I can say that picture quality is on par if not better than the player it replaced, a Pioneer BDP-51FD. Very responsive player and the OSD is very easy to navigate. It runs a tad warm but not overly.

I replaced the Pio because I needed a bit more space in my cabinet to fit a new Emotiva amp. Also the Pio load times are painfully slow. The Samsung 7000 is a very capable player and super compact, great front display with super responsive buttons and feels very solid. A+ by me so far. No glitches yet and it plays all my discs including BR, DVD and DVD-R and RW without issue.

I've been trying to find another one of these locally here in the Los Angeles area but absolutely no luck...

Anyone have any idea why this player is so hard to find?
post #17 of 36
I've been speaking with a few people at Amazon and have heard that Samsung has not been sending them with the expected shipments. I'm thinking it might have to do with the rumors of it not properly playing a lot of DVD's, but a number of people say it is working fine also. Not sure who to believe, but I'm still waiting for mine from an early June order.
post #18 of 36
As I said above I returned mine because it would not play any DVDs. Now I notice one of the reviews at Amazon critical of the unit mentions the same problem...

Hmmmmm.
post #19 of 36
Mine plays regular DVDs just fine. No issues yet. I just wish it didn't play any Baby Einstein or Your Baby Can Read DVDs.
post #20 of 36
Amazon still hasn't received these. I'm wondering how big this issue actually is.

Amazon has dropped it from their system. I guess I will have to wait for whatever the replacement model is.

It is still there, just suppressed in search results.
post #23 of 36
But it's gone from "available in 1 - 3 weeks" to "notify when available."

Samsung makes such cool BD players...sad that they are frequently problematic though.
post #24 of 36
Well I have to now report my BD-D7000 has stopped playing DVDs. Run from this unit like the plague until(if ever) they resolve the failure issues.
post #25 of 36
I just don't get it. Given the absolute lack of availability at retail it seems clear that Samsung knows there are issues with this player...
post #26 of 36
Customer service acted as if the product is available and has no known issues. Of course it was just a CS rep I spoke with when I brought up the internet wide reports of failure and lack of availability.

They sent me a label to send it in free of charge to have it "fixed". I am beyond the return date at PC Richards so I cant return it there otherwise I would.
post #27 of 36
I took a chance and ordered this from a 3rd party that shipped via the river (same customer service as the river, so I feel a bit safer). So far, no major issues with playing DVD or BluRay. It did have a bit of a glitch with playing the a Shrek BR, but I I turned it off and on and the problem went away. I've got a couple weeks to test it out, but so far the player is awesome!
post #28 of 36
Received back from Samsung in one week from the day I shipped it out to get repaired. They replaced the the laser/lens and now it works perfectly. We will see how this pans out.
post #29 of 36
How well would this player work if I mounted it on the wall tucked behind the TV? I figure that slot load means I can mount it sideways on the wall and still be able to load DVDs. I also want to be able to use the remote, so any ideas on how to accomplish this or will it still work if I let it stick out a little?
post #30 of 36
I have the BD-D6700, and it is one of the nicer players Ive tried. I still prefer my BDT210 as a general Blu-ray player.
