Samsung HT-D6500W 3D Blu-ray Home Theater System Review

The Samsung HT-D6500W Blu-ray home theater system could boost your home movie experience. With an all-in-one 3D Blu-ray player and receiver with a Samsung Smart Hub, watching and searching for videos with your favorite apps like Netflix can be a breeze.

What You Need To Know

  • The Samsung Blu-ray home theater system is very shiny with the Blu-ray player built right into the receiver.
  • This is great for cutting down on stacks of devices.
  • The player is slot loading, so this means no big tray popping out.
  • Aside from the volume control, there are no physical buttons on here which is great, and throughout testing, they were very responsive.
  • The rear speakers are billed as wireless but that's not totally true.
  • There is no wire going from the main unit to the speaker, but there are wires going from the rear speakers to their own wireless receiver.
  • A lot of 3D Blu-ray players take a while to load through the menu, and this system was no different.
  • We tried disks from a variety of publishers and found that the load times across the board were a little slow.
  • The picture looks great and we noticed very little noise.
  • The 3D looks as good as 3D can look and if that's what you looking for in a player, you won't be disappointed.
  • What sets this system apart from others is its built-in ability to access the web.
  • There aren't that many apps available right now in the Samsung App store but all the big ones are there, like Netflix and Hulu Plus.
  • There are also apps for social media like Twitter, news and weather.
  • There's even a USB port to plug your own drive of media into.
  • There are only 2 HDMI ports on the system but you already have Blu-ray and web app capabitilities included.
  • The sound quality is incredible: the receiver is 1000 watts.
  • The unit comes with a calibration microphone so you can be sure it's tuned properly.
  • We tested this out with various levels anf ound that clarity was never an issue.
  • Well mixed Blu-rays sound genuinely great.
  • There was plenty of power to fill up a large living room.


  • $600 retail price.
  • $469 on Amazo

    I hope they realize it isn't really 1000w...

    And I hope they review some real speakers someday

    can't believe you gave this a 5 out of 5 more like 1 out of 5. its a 3 oms speakers at 1000 watts and lobbing is an issue. the frequency response sucks. the rear wanna be speakers sound like crap well all the speakers suck and its a proprietary system so your stuck with the lame speaker and htb system only last about a couple years so buy a real 5.1 system with 8 oms speakers that will last you 10 years or more i would say get the Denon DHT-1312BA 5.1-Channel 3d Home Theater System for around 399.99 to 599.99 and buy a blu-ray player. last note you buy cheap you get cheap
