It's just ok
It's just ok. The set up was easy but the use of it... The power button gives me a hard time. I have to hit the power button on the DVD and and then the power on the remote, plus I have to be up close to it (so what would be the point of a remote). Seems like I have to send a command to the DVR twice.... it's just ok. Hey, it plays movies. Would I buy another one like it again.... NO!
Audio out is TOO loud
I had hoped to replace a Samsung V1000 with this and found that I can't hook up my externally amplified speakers to it without blowing out the house. In comparison, the Samsung has a volume control and output levels that are reasonable.
The remote was confusing, as was the options for using the different features. It would be easier to have two separate components. Although not perfect, the Samsung does a better job of integrating the DVD and VCR functions and includes a tv tuner.
NOT GOOD FOR ME
I MUST SAY I WAS REAL EXCITED AFTER SANDY TO GETTHIS
BUT IT IS NOT FOR ME NO RECEPTION WHEREVER I STAND HATED THE SEPARATED ANTENNA WOULDHAVE BEEN GREAT IF IT ATTACHED TO SOMETHING IT FALLS OVER
ALSO THE USB AND FLASH DID NOT READ ALL FORMATS VERY DISAPPOINTED
BUT GAVE A 3 STAR FOR THE EFFORT OF THE IDEA OF AHVING A FLASH USB DVD PS THAT WORKED REAL WELL
A simple DVR, that's not tied to service providers
I'm so glad they finally made a DVR like this. In the pre digital days, I had one pretty much like this, and used it constantly, but after everything was converted to ATSC (digital) it was no longer very useful. I looked and looked for a digital version, but all I found were DVRs that were tied to cable or satellite companies, or subscription services like TIVO.
It sorta works
I bought the IView to play Karaoke from MP3-G files. It claims to play from USB, SD Cards etc, or CD. USB works but I tried an SD card in the slot and it wouldn't fit. Oops. Navigation among karaoke files is quite limited, only showing the first few characters of the file name. I had to rename files to remove the artist name from the front of the filenames so I could get a hint of what song I was selecting. Pressing stop takes you back to the first song in topmost directory.
Excellent, reasonably priced
A few annoying design quirks canâ?? t take the shine out of the otherwise excellent, reasonably priced Samsung BD-C6500. A few annoying design quirks canâ?? t take the shine out of the otherwise excellent, reasonably priced Samsung BD-C6500. Though it costs more than many competitors, the Samsung BD-C7900 offers excellent images, 3D, ease of use, and all the Internet and multimedia trimmings.
Great video and audio quality
Overall, Samsung's BD-C6500 Blu-ray Player provides great video and audio quality. Energy efficient, with extremely fast operational speed. With the Internet@TV feature you are given an ever growing access to digital content. These great features and promises of more to come, the BD-C6500 the perfect Blu-ray Player to meet all your needs Now and In The Future.
The Samsung BD-C6500 includes all the features that are expected from top of the line Blu-ray players, built-in WiFi, Internet content apps and even 7.1 channel analog audio outputs. If you want 3D playback capability, you will need to step up to one of their more expensive models.
Excellent universal player
The Cambridge Audio 650BD is an excellent universal player, one that wears many hats and stylishly wears each of them well. It could easily serve as the only source for a mid to high-end audio/video system with solid audiophile roots. For extremists looking to bump up the performance envelope to the Nth degree - I suggest that you could use the 650BD as a transport for Compact Discs feeding an external DAC - like Cambridge's own DAC Magic.
very high performance
The Azur 650BD represents a very good solution for those wanting to add a universal player to their Cambridge Audio systems or anyone looking for a responsive and capable Blu-ray player. Video performance is on par with any player Iâ??ve seen and audio performance is excellent as well.
Simple to use
Overall, the Azur 650BD is simple to use â?? advanced config is straightforward yet flexible â?? and unlike some players, youâ?? re not forced to stop a disc to dive into the setup menus. With power consumption around 0.5W in standby and 20W during BD playback â?? you can shave another 1.5 off in â?? pure audioâ?? mode â?? itâ?? s pretty economical to run too.
