For home entertainment enthusiasts who require high performance and a multitude of networked features, there's the Samsung BD-E6500 Blu-ray Disc Player. With support for full HD 1080p resolution and 3D content, you can take advantage of some of the most realistic, vivid imaging that's available today. Once you connect it to your home network connection, you can access exclusive content and services, and even make cloud-based digital copies of your DVDs. Another benefit of this disc player are the two HDMI inputs, which allow you to connect additional devices like a set-top box or gaming console using a single HDMI output. This keeps your space tidy and clutter-free.

The BD-E6500 has a high-powered video processor that upconverts lower-resolution material like DVDs or Internet content. It's also DLNA-certified so you can easily share media from one device to another that also is compatible with DLNA. If you have a smartphone, you can download an app to allow you to command it all from your phone. Additional benefits include BD Wise for optimal resolution, a slot-in drive mechanism, and a unique aesthetic with blue lighting effect. And as an Energy Star product, you'll save money on your energy bills while saving the environment.

Full HD 3D Playback
Whether you're enjoying 2D or 3D content, you'll be amazed by the vivid colors and clear imaging of full HD 1080p resolution
Disc to Digital
If you have an extensive library of DVDs, you're in luck. You can register your ownership of physical DVDs, and access the same movie content on a variety of devices, virtually anytime and anywhere-even from multiple locations at once. Once digital copies have been created and added to your UltraViolet collection, the content will be made available through the Flixster application on Samsung's Smart Hub, as well as on a broad range of connected devices such as smart phones, tablet, PCs and Smart TVs. You'll also have the option to purchase HD quality versions of these movies, and can share digital library content with other members under the same account
Advanced Services & Content Options
Enjoy access to Samsung Smart Hub; a simple way to access, search and explore Samsung Apps. This disc player also offers a full web browser and the ability to experience rich content. Built-in WiFi allows for convenient access to a variety of web-based content and connectivity options
HD Upconversion
This disc player has a powerful video processor that can upconvert DVDs, older non-HD content and low-resolution streaming video to full HD 1080p
High Resolution Audio
Supports multiple audio formats including Dolby Digital Plus, TrueHD and DTS-HD bitstream outputs for realistic surround sound
Twin HDMI Inputs
Streamline connections to your TV by allowing more than one component, such as a set-top box and game console, to be hooked up to BD-E6500 and connected to the TV via only one HDMI output. This minimizes the number of wires required so that the home entertainment area may be free of clutter an also maintain a minimalist look-and-feel to the room
Remote Control App
The remote control app can be downloaded onto an Android or Apple smartphone to enhance how you control and search for content on your Blu-ray player. The app's MovieNote feature also offers instant access to detailed information on movies you're currently watching, including plot synopsis, actor and director biography information

When the smartphone is connected to the same home network as this Blu-ray player, you can control the player with ease and use the QWERTY keyboard on your devices for easy information input
Wi-Fi Direct
Allows Wi-Fi devices to be connected directly and easily without a wireless access point
DLNA-Certified
Sharing content across devices is now easier than ever
BD Wise
This feature automatically adjusts the TV setting to provide optimal picture no matter what your source material
Slot-in Drive Mechanism
Convenient centralized controls allow for easy access and management, this disc player features a centralized slot-in mechanism. The lack of mechanical parts also makes for a smoother and quieter loading experience, with a boot time of less than one second
Unique Look
The BD-E6500 features a two-tone design that accentuates its slimness. The top of the player features an elegant piano-black finish, while the bottom has the look and feel of high-grade metal. A bright but unobtrusive Mystic Blue lighting feature serves as an elegant accent to unite the two parts together
Environmentally-Friendly
This disc player uses 19 watts in operation, and less than one watt in standby mode. That saves you money, and saves the environment

      easy to set up. complex two sided remote with many features and very limited instruction on how to use. online support essentially touts these same features but does little to explain use. i am a 55 y.o. and not a smart phone or wii user, accustomed to written instruction manuals which probably explains some of my frustration. five star if i figure out full use of qwerty remote!

      This is close to Samsung's top of the line in BR players, so I was expecting a lot. There aren't as many as I had expected. I also bought this unit because it has a quick start up feature. I replaced my older BR player (an LG unit) because it took very long to start up a BR disc. This new one is not that much faster. The quick start feature is to turn the unit on quicker, but it keeps the power supply ready to go at all times so the unit stays too hot. I have since disabled the feature that was one of the reasons I bought the unit. Overall, it is a good player; I was just expecting more being among their top current models.

      Very slim

            Comments about Samsung BD-E6500 Blu-ray Disc Player:

            Ths Blu-Ray player seems to perform beautifully so far. It is extremely slim with its low profile made possible by the substitution of electronic controls instead of buttons and knobs. Most of the controls must be performed via the remote. This, of course, would be great were it not for the fact that we now require at least four remotes to take full advantage of our home theater setup, which runs both the TV and Blu-Ray player through an audio-video receiver. That all makes for a complicated setup and enduring challenges. WEe hope that as time passes, we can figure out how to transfer more of the various functions to fewer remotes, but it is a real challenge.

              Comments about Samsung BD-E6500 Blu-ray Disc Player:

              I was a little dissappointed in the web-browsing ability. Very slow to input info using remote. Also, I was hoping my wife could use it to watch Korean dramas instead of her laptop, however, with no memory built in, that is impossible. This is more of a problem of my ignorance than a problem with the device.

                  I've had this blu-ray for two weeks now, and I cant find any flaws. I'm fairly easy to please and this is an upgrade for me. It streams netflex, etc well, and apps are fun (just hope Samsung continues to add more apps). Very happy with the purchase!

                            easy to set up. complex two sided remote with many features and very limited instruction on how to use. online support essentially touts these same features but does little to explain use. i am a 55 y.o. and not a smart phone or wii user, accustomed to written instruction manuals which probably explains some of my frustration. five star if i figure out full use of qwerty remote!

                              Well, this was my first Blu Ray player that I purchased to compliment my Samsung 46 inch Smart TV. It's sleek and built well. It has 2 HDMI ports. I like the fact that it has the capability for future upgrades. The player loads the disc rather quick and pretty silent. You can't go wrong with this player and the price is great for its features. I am a satisfied customer.

                                Having received an email from Blockbuster that my two year old Samsung BD player was going to cease working with their service, I ventured to the Blockbuster site to see what equipment would support their new on demand format. Samsung had several, so I researched the Samsung site to pick a model that would satisfy my needs.
                                I am thrilled to state that this BD-E6500 player supports more features and on demand services than I expected and I'm thrilled with the unit so far. Blockbuster may have just lost most of my business now that I have this new unit!
                                B&H Photo was super-fast in shipping out the unit and I had it within one business day. Than you B&H Photo!
