Top Rated 3D Blu-Ray Player 2015
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.
