Review

1. Samsung BD-C6900 Review by Techradar.com

I subscribe to the theory that any disc player worth owning should have the demeanour of a battleship built by a Scottish shipyard. Rigidity foreshadows integrity, and tells me that a manufacturer takes the player as seriously as I take my media. So Samsung’s debut 3D BD player, the BD-C6900, is a challenge.

Its almost impossibly slight frame (it’s more kayak than cruiser) contradicts my world view, and teases me with a transparent lid and glimpses of my spinning discs. Yet I need to take it seriously.

2. Samsung BD-C6900 by Whathifi.com

Anyone who expected the first commercially available Blu-ray player to be vastly expensive would have been surprised when it turned out to be the £349 Samsung. What’s more, in the five short months since we saw it, it’s dropped almost 25 per cent to £265. Apply those sorts of discounts to the tellies, and we could all be going 3D sooner than imagined.

3. Samsung BD-C6900 by Cnet

It seems like as soon as Blu-ray became a definitively mainstream home theater format, manufacturers scrambled to find a new format to charge extra for–3D. Samsung’s BD-C6900 ($360 street price) is the first 3D Blu-ray player we’ve reviewed so far, and the 3D price premium is steep. The step-down BD-C6500 is nearly identical except it lacks 3D and costs about $135 less. Not to mention the fact that you’ll need to buy a new HDTV and pricey 3D glasses, as well as 3D content–which is exceedingly rare at the moment. We also didn’t find the 3D Blu-ray experience to be all that satisfying with the Samsung UN55C8000 3D HDTV we used for this test, although we suspect our issues in that area had more to do with the TV than the BD-C6900’s 3D performance.
