First, there was the VCR, then came the Compact Disc, after that emerged the DVD, and now the latest entrant into the world of external data storage devices is the blu ray. The blu ray disc, also known as BD or just blu-ray, is the new and familiar thing in the market which has been designed to supersede the standard DVD format.
Its main uses are for storing high-definition video, PlayStation 3 video games, and other data, with up to 25 GB per single layered, and 50 GB per dual layered disc.
And as the blu-ray has gained popularity, a lot of companies have come up with these high-end blu-ray players but one of the leading companies is Samsung and that being said, let’s check out some of the best Samsung Blu Ray Players.
Samsung BD-C7500 Blu Ray Player
This is one of the best blu-ray players available in the market today. Though this is sold only in the United States, if you want a good quality blu-ray player, getting one for yourself from there will not be a big problem. The BD profile of this product is that of BD-Live, version 2.0.
If we talk about media, this device reads mainly BD-ROMs, although the information if this device can read and write CDs and DVDs is not available yet.
This device though, does not read the blu-ray 3D and is not portable. It has a 1080p video resolution and has 24 frames per second speed. Talking about video playback, this player supports MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) and VC-1 formats, and in audio playback, it supports a variety of formats, which include Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital+, Dolby True HD, Dolby TrueHD (bitstream) and so on.
It also has Ethernet and wireless connectivity. Internet services are available and internet networks on Samsung BD-C7500 include Netflix, Pandora, Twitter, USA Today and a lot more. Overall, this is a nice player to own if you are a part of the whole blu-ray revolution.
Samsung BD-C6500 Blu Ray Player
Another good bet, when you are looking to buy a high end blu-ray player. Also sold in the United States, this also has a BD profile of BD-Live, version 2.0. Again, this device is mainly made to read BD-ROM. The video resolutions and the frames per second speed are the same as the Samsung BD-C7500.
Again, talking about the video playback, the player supports MPEG-2, MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) and VC-1 formats and in audio playback, it supports formats like Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital+, and so on. This blu ray player has features very much similar to the BD-C7500 model, and so is a good buy as well.
Samsung BD-P3600 Blu Ray Player
Last but not the least, the Samsung BD-P3600 device has almost the same features as the above mentioned models and deserves to be in this list. One advantage of this device is that it is confirmed that it has a compatible DVD-ROM and a CD-ROM.
Also, it has video resolutions of 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 576p, 480p and DVD up conversion of 1080p, 1080i, 720p. The video and audio playback features are almost the same as the above mentioned models, although along with wireless and Ethernet connectivity, it also had usb compatibility, with usb version 2.0, although internet services are not confirmed. Taking the added features into account, this model is as good a bet to buy as the other two.
