Samsung BD-D6700 Review

One of the bestselling Blu-ray models of 2015 so far is the recently released BD-D6700 which fixes a lot of the problems that had plagued previous Samsung 3D Blu-ray models. One smart feature that Samsung incorporated in to this model is the 2 HDMI ports, one which can be used for your 3D video signal, and the other which can pas HDMI 1.3 Data to your A/V receiver.

Wi-fi is already built in, which I find to be a huge plus so I have access to the latest shows on Netflix and convenient because I don't have to purchase or use a USB dongle that often extends the width of the player a few inches as well. With your wi-fi you also get access to Samsung's Smart TV service which has applications that let you access your favorite social networking sites, watch videos on YouTube, and more.

Overall the BD-D6700 is a great price and solid product at around $200. If you're an audiophile and willing to spend significantly more, then the OPPO BDP-93 or new BDP-95 are probably a better choice. In my opinion most will be more than satisfied with the lower price of the BD-D6700 its decoding of Dolby Digital TrueHD and DTS Master Audio.

      Great article. For those who live outside US like me, you can access Netflix, Hulu and similar media stations on your LG Smart TV by using UnoTelly or similar tools.

      Home entertainment technology is really improving every year. People are now convinced that HDMI can bring this experience unto their homes. Analog cables was once widely used but now with just a single 5m HDMI cable, you can enjoy the benefits it provides.
