Rated 1 out of 5 by from do not buy this blu ray player has glitches. ever since i bought it, i experience random flashes every time i attempt to view any disc 4k or otherwise. 4k players are expensive and should at least be able to perform its primary function (playing movies) without issue

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LESS VERSATILITY Replaced a 6300 that died at 22 months; not quite the solution I had expected.I will say that the picture is awesome, and the audio is a noticeable improvement over the one being replaced. However, the older Blu-ray player had some features that are, disappointingly, missing from this newer, more expensive model. Across the board, Samsung seems to have eliminated several positive characteristics - and selection variety - from its line-up. (The brand is still better than its competitors.)These are some of the conveniences missing from the 8500 that were built-in to the 6300:Does not turn the television on/off automatically, takes about three extra steps;When turned on, goes directly to disc function, requiring several steps to get to apps;With no front panel display, not always sure if it's on or off;Older programming on Hulu, originally in 4:3 ratio, is stretched to 16:9 - looks awful.There are several other minor issues, which I won't go into here.I had expected that an upgrade costing 2.5X as much as my old unit would incorporate at least the same convenience features. It's a shame that the 8500 does not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT DVD PLAY WITH ONE EXCEPTION The DVD player smart hub it self is a great product and easy to use. The only thing I didn't like about it was the remote that came with it. . But the remote from and old one I had works great. Had a little trouble getting the APPS I wanted until I realized the APPS selector was at the far left of the APPS bar. There was not Manual that came with it and I couldn't find one on the internet. But over all once set up and programmed its easy to use and it give a clearer picture on the TV screen. On feature I like is Close Caption. To get close caption hit the down button on the remote hit the right arrow button over CC click select font size, got to upper left hand and turn on close caption.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So much promise, so difficult to use. 1. You need to provide a users' manual, and the remote needs labels so that I know what each icon is supposed to do.Consumer Reports rated this DVD very highly, but having trouble using it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Picture I have or have had prior to this 4K unit 5 Samsung Blu-ray players. This new unit gives an outstanding picture and has great APPs. It also has great upscaling to give great pictures with regular Blu-ray and DVD discs. What I perceive as drawbacks are: 1. Learning to use the remote takes some getting used to and it would be easier to use if the keys were highlighted better. 2. There is no time clock on the front so that you can see how far along you are into a show without hitting the pause button to see it on the screen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Blu-Ray and 4K movies are a problem Blu-ray players have a problem with Blu-ray and 4K movie disk, now DVD disk work fine in most players no matter what brand. I have a number of Samsung Blu-ray players. Starting with a Samsung, BD-D5700/ZA manufacture 2011.11. Now this unit will not play Blu-ray disk, I have tried everything, it's updated on firmware. Back then I was not buying Blu-Ray disk unless they came in a combo package,(Blu-Ray, DVD, Digital). Second one Samsung BD-EM57C/ZA, manufacture 2012.11, this one also will not play Blu-ray disk, it also has the latest firmware. I still had only a few Blu-ray disk. I got a 2017 Series 8 Samsung TV, which is GREAT, works wonderfully, amazing picture with the 240Hz. So I decided the get a new Samsung Blu-ray player, a Samsung UBD-M8500/ZA, manufacture in 2017. The first one has worked fine since late12/2017. I bought a 2nd in 01/2018, UBD-M8500/ZA, will not play Blu-Ray Disk, out for repair, It's under Warranty. I have lots of Blu-Ray and 4K disk now, so I want a player that works.
