    Recently received the BD-H6500 as a gift (after I did a lot a research and left hints as to what devices I wanted for my (eventual) home theater set-up. I'm acquiring items piece by piece). The device is well-packaged and protected in shipment, compact, with a better-than-most (detailed) but easy-to-understand instruction manual. The device itself is attractive and extremely functional, with setup exceptionally easy--including that of firmware updates, which does require a external USB thumb drive (not provided). Initially, I had trouble getting the device to wirelessly connect to my Netgear WNDR 4500 router--but that turned out to be an issue with the latest firmware from Netgear. It had nothing to do with the bluray player. If you possess that router, and you have difficulty adding new devices (any new device), do yourself a favor and revert to a previous version of the router firmware. As soon as I did that, I had no trouble connecting the device. Using the device is simple and straightforward. It simply works as one would imagine it would (and should). I do have 2 complaints as to the design--and in fact, these complaints were observed in other reviews I encountered elsewhere (during my own research). It turns out those statements were accurate. The 2 issues are: a) the inability to eject the tray via remote, and b) the on-board controls placed on the top right hand corner of the unit. If you place the bluray player in a cabinet (like I did), and if it sits on top of a stack of other components, make certain you've left enough space to reach in to operate the on-board controls (primarily the aforementioned lack of means of ejecting the disk because there is no button on the remote to do so). Because the on-board controls don't sit very "proud" of the unit's surface (meaning they don't stick out very far at all--they are almost imperceptible to feel, in fact--but they are quite sensitive). Because my unit is on top of a stack that completely fills the cabinet space, I have to actually grasp the unit and pull it far enough out to "see" the on-board controls so I hit the right one. If I don't do this, I will invariably hit the wrong control and usually (and inadvertently) turn the unit off instead of ejecting the tray. Samsung should have created an eject button on the remote. Perhaps a future firmware change might, somehow, allow two keys pressed at the same time on the remote to open the tray--failing that of having a dedicated button. Because of this issue, I gave the design only 4-stars. Otherwise, this unit would have gotten 5-stars for everything.

    The web browsing feature of this product is just awful. The product was okay otherwise - some issues, but passable - but including a feature that is so awful is reason to avoid this product like the plague. Samsung should learn to not include a feature if it going to create anger with their customers - better to have fewer features than a customer who will never buy a Samsung product again and will tell everyone they can to do the same. I selected this product - and paid more - so I could use the browser and access things like hulu in addition to the apps included. Do NOT make the same mistake.

                        Comments about Samsung Black 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

                        Packaging was very good; set-up was easy. There are no interface cables included (e.g., HDMI) , so be sure to purchase separately whatever cabling you need to connect it to your particular TV. Not sure what some other reviewers were talking about regarding "no disk eject button on the remote" because its right there, immediately under the POWER button. Works with streaming (Netflix, Amazon Prime Video) well, but did run into some hiccups with Netflix the very first time after account set-up. My advice - if you have properly created a new account or logged into your existing account with a streaming service and the service does not work, WAIT! Leave the unit powered up, but come back in an hour. I suspect there is some background firmware updates taking place. Everything worked like a charm after an hour. The unit runs flawlessly. BR and DVD playback is quick. Upscaling seems to work well. No skipping, chatter or clicking. The unit runs very quietly. There is little to no heat issue, either. you can set the brightness (or turn off) front panel control LEDs in the set-up menu. Downside - just two. First, that stylish but stupidly designed control surface on the top right front corner of the unit. As described by others, it is very sensitive but you'll need a flashlight and a magnifying glass to read any markings. Whatever minimal markings that are there are small and faint - no contrasting paint to make it easy to read. Also, if you stack your components, remember - your remote is your friend. Don't lose or break it. Second, the remote is designed to be used with Samsung other components. So, if you have a non-Samsung TV, don't bother trying to program the Bluray player's remote to power on or off you TV - you can't.

                                I am very happy with this attractive little unit. It's ready for 4k content whenever that becomes available. It supports 3D, whenever I get around to purchasing a 3D tv. The settings menu is easy to navigate, and the remote has all the features you will ever need. I did have a brief struggle matching the color space to my HDTV, but that was easy enough to configure in the settings. I do wish this model had more audio-out options, but a digital audio cable is easy to come by, so I'll have to go that route. Overall performance is excellent, you won't be sorry.

If you possess that router, and you have difficulty adding new devices (any new device), do yourself a favor and revert to a previous version of the router firmware. As soon as I did that, I had no trouble connecting the device. Using the device is simple and straightforward. It simply works as one would imagine it would (and should). I do have 2 complaints as to the design--and in fact, these complaints were observed in other reviews I encountered elsewhere (during my own research). It turns out those statements were accurate. The 2 issues are: a) the inability to eject the tray via remote, and b) the on-board controls placed on the top right hand corner of the unit. If you place the bluray player in a cabinet (like I did), and if it sits on top of a stack of other components, make certain you've left enough space to reach in to operate the on-board controls (primarily the aforementioned lack of means of ejecting the disk because there is no button on the remote to do so). Because the on-board controls don't sit very "proud" of the unit's surface (meaning they don't stick out very far at all--they are almost imperceptible to feel, in fact--but they are quite sensitive). Because my unit is on top of a stack that completely fills the cabinet space, I have to actually grasp the unit and pull it far enough out to "see" the on-board controls so I hit the right one. If I don't do this, I will invariably hit the wrong control and usually (and inadvertently) turn the unit off instead of ejecting the tray. Samsung should have created an eject button on the remote. Perhaps a future firmware change might, somehow, allow two keys pressed at the same time on the remote to open the tray--failing that of having a dedicated button. Because of this issue, I gave the design only 4-stars. Otherwise, this unit would have gotten 5-stars for everything.
