Has anyone purchased the new Samsung BD-D7500 3D Blu-Ray player? I am interested in purchasing this, so I was curious to know if there was anyone out there who has one.


I keep reading about this new Samsung Smart TV which includes a full internet browser. I'm interested to know how the browser is.

I just purchased the Samsung PN51D450, and the Yamaha YSP 2200 so all I need is a blue ray player now. Can any one post a review on the Blue Ray player ? I know last years model had many issues.


Thanks,


Saif

Has any one used this player.......thinking about buying one.......

I've been using it for about a week now. I haven't had time to post a review on it yet. Just some quick notes about the player:


Blu-Ray discs load up fast. It's way better compared to older Samsung 3D blu-ray players such as the BD-C6900. The Smart Hub is nice. It gives you access to Samsung apps and services such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, Vudu, Blockbuster, Youtube, plus more. I have been watching movies on Netflix without any issues. I've watched one movie on Vudu and it played fine. One thing that I've seen on advertisements and various store websites is that it has Smart TV with a full web browser. That isn't the case. There is no web browser. The full internet browser is only on several of the new 2011 LED models.


It has built in wi-fi. I have my internet connected directly into the player, so I haven't tried using the built in wi-fi.


The blu-ray player looks really nice. It's extremely thin. The circle area lights up with a white light. The light continues to dim from bright to off while it's on. You can turn the light off in the settings. When the player is off, part of the circle on top stays lit.


It comes with a bracket to mount it on a wall. It also comes with a stand to sit the player up. It looks good using the stand. You can also lay the player flat as well.


The BD-D7500 is 50hz compatible. I have the UK An Idiot Abroad blu-ray and it plays fine.


The 2D - 3D feature works ok. I have a 2010 Samsung 3D LED with the same feature and I didn't notice any difference in quality with the tv versus this blu-ray player. I don't really use the feature much anyway though. I did try it out with 127 Hours and parts of the film did look decent using the 2D - 3D conversion.


The remote is basically the same as last years models. No back light. The remote does have a Netflix button. Other then that and the 2D-3D button, it's basically the same.


Overall, I'm very happy with the BD-D7500. The main reason why I wanted to upgrade to this is the disc load up time and it looks awesome.

Does anyone know the difference between the D7500 vs D7000 beside the physical design? I am thinking to get one to match with my 2011 Samsung LED.

From everything I've read, the specs are the same except for the design of course.

When I added the Samsung BD-D7500 i rewatched "How To Train A Dragon", the disk sent with the TV with underwater stuff and A film about Mummies and Pyramids and other 3D films. I was completely and painfully aware of where the crosstalk was. To my utter surprise it was gone, I watched over and over under different lighting and with the same default settings my old BD-D6800 Blu-ray had. I never would have guessed in 100 years changing the player would fix crosstalk. Now I can watch a whole Movie or 3D on Comcast and maybe see crosstalk once very subtly and believe me I look for it all the time because I was upset about it. i was shocked they could sell something like my $3000 un55c8000 Samsung TV with a flaw like this. But, I have to adamantly state this is no longer the case. I am very satisfied by my equipments 3D performance.

I had the C7500 but had problems with it (it wouldn't play CDs or standard DVDs) and traded it in for the D6700. , I know the C7500 loads from the side and not the front. (The whole top of the player slides to the left, leaving the laser exposed, and also making it unusable in an equipment rack). Don't know if the same is true of the D7500.

The BD-D7500 you insert the disk from the side. The whole top is closed.

Well, that's an improvement...having the whole top of the player move made me think it would be the first thing that might conk out! Of course, side-loading is still an issue in a rack...but then, I know this player is meant to be mounted somewhere.

I'm getting this today based on the user reviews of solving crosstalk issues with the C8000 televisions. Can't wait to see if it works as advertised!

I sincerely hope it works out for you like it did me. If it doesn't I'll feel guilty.

No reason to feel guilty as this thing works!!! Never could I have imagined that a player would clear up the crosstalk issue. A revelation!

That's great to hear it works for you as well. I would have never imagined a blu-ray player would fix the crosstalk issue.

Does this one has the possibility to play AVi or MKV or Xvid or whatever files that are stored on a USB?First choice was a Panny 310 but it seems that one does not play those files straight from USB.And it is possible to load seperate subtitle files,most movies i have on pc are english with a seperate subttile file.On pc usually VLC automatically finds the subtitle file and loads it,will this work on this player too?

Hi,


I actually have the BD-c7500 and use it in my bedroom. It was last year's version without 3D support. I noticed that it has had a significant external redesign. I bought it at a steep discount. It is quite slim at about an inch thick. I find it to be a speedy blu ray player. However, there are a few issues. The loading mechanism is flimsy and the motor is underpowered. Loading discs is not a confidence inspiring procedure. The top cover moves and you place the disc inside the machine. The player is a tad noisy while spinning discs as well.


I have had quite a bit of difficulty with the streaming software. The Samsung software does not support Windows 7. Third party DLNA software works occasionally but not consistently. I find that it disconnects from my wifi network EVERY time you turn it off. This means whenever I want to stream videos/netflix, I have to reenter my secure password. A firmware update made the streaming actually functional but did not correct the wifi issue.


The only other issue I have with it is the touch sesnitive buttons. As I stated before, the player is noisy. It attracts my cat who invariably manages to eject the disc or stop playback. This issue is probably isolated to me.


Anyhow, I would be curious to hear whether this new 3D capable version is much improved with regard to the above.


Thanks

It's definitely a big improvement. The disc loads by sliding the disc into a slot in the side, there is no drawer or sliding top. The disc inserts easily, the machine runs silently. I have two cats. They both get alert at the sound when I eject the disk, but when it's running there's little or no sound to attract them. this mechanism is the same on all 2011 models. If you have now or plan to get a 3D TV it's a good chance this machine may fix crosstalk almost completely.

Akuma,


I don't know about the new model, but I found last year's Samsung quite limited in its streaming capability. I believe I was able to stream mp4 files successfully. I recall not successfully streaming mkv files. There are no options for streaming subtitles. I believe you would probably need pc for that function.
