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.

Web browser useless

I bought this player instead of one of the less expensive models just for the so-called "SmartHub" and the web browser features. There is some video content I want to watch on certain sites that don't provide an app, leaving a browser as the only option. It has been an exercise in futility. The browser is extremely basic and difficult to use. It's just too slow to be practical. There are also no enhancements like plug-ins (such as an ad blocker) and the settings are too basic. For example, if you turn off pop-ups, that also prevents links using the 'open in new window' or 'open in new frame' tags from opening the page at all. Blocking pop-ups nearly renders the browser useless and leaving pop-ups enabled makes it too cumbersome to use. Navigating to and closing all those windows is too cumbersome. It crashed several times on me as well. Even when I do finally get a video to play, it has yet to finish loading before stalling. It is incredibly slow too. My 5-year old MacBook Pro on the exact same wireless network is 10 times faster using Chrome, Firefox, or Safari on the exact same page. It's like the player is throttling the download or something. Totally useless. Then, I was hoping to find a alternative browser in the Samsung App store, such as Opera or Google Chrome. Not only does nothing exist, but when you go to the app store and perform a search and it finds no apps to fit the criteria, it still bombs you with a bunch of other content, such as YouTube videos, that contain the name in your search string. This is bad interface design at its finest. If I'm IN the app store, I'm looking for apps, NOT videos on YouTube. The bottom line is that this is supposed to be a internet-centric player but if you don't want to use the limited content Samsung provides through their app partnerships, you will be underwhelmed. For me, I paid a $60.00 premium over another Samsung Blu-Ray player just to get the browser, and it turned out to be so limited and dysfunctional that it's virtually useless. I'm very disappointed.

          Overall, very satisfied with this player. Very easy and painless setup process. Very good picture quality. Appears to be very good quality and value for what is considered to be a mid-range player. Compared this player to several other Samsung models and other manufactures models.....felt and believed this model to be the best for money spent.

                The TVs up convert, but if you really want a nice, sharp, clear picture, upgrade the Blu-ray player to this one, and you won't go to movies anymore. Especially if you have a good theater system.

                I had some issues with this Blu-Ray being recognized by my Home Theater Receiver. For the better part of a day I either had no sound or nothing at all. The cabling never changed but after multiple resets and replugging/swapping HDMI and power cords it decided to work. Still requires a specific sequence to recognize but has worked since. It was a long frustrating experience just swapping a functioning Blu-Ray for a better one. Samsung CR wanted me to change from HDMI and ruin all my in-wall cabling setup. What a joke.
