The Samsung BD-C6900
If 3D is your interest, you’ve probably been reviewing Samsung’s UE40C7000 TV. However, if you want to view 3D movies, you will need a 3D source. Samsung produce one of those as well – the Samsung BD-C6900
The price of the Samsung BD-C6900 is a modest £349. It has good features, too, with a slick, button-free chassis. It doesn’t actually seem top of the market, and it draws finger-marks, but the Samsung BD-C6900 is elegant value for money.
It’s respectable with 2D too which is a good job. There are no 3D Blu-ray discs available yet, so you’ll be viewing a lot of 2D matter for a while. It’s really up to the job in this respect, with good colours, loads of detail and exciting punch.
If you’re still using DVD, fear not. The Samsung BD-C6900 is very competent. Its sharpness, detail and liveliness are among the best for the price.
An warning, present receivers will not be able to use the Samsung BD-C6900 3D signal. This means you’ll have to either purchase a 3D-enabled receiver when they are available, or use the 7.1 analogue multi-channel output.
So what is the Samsung BD-C6900 like with 3D Blu-ray? There are a couple of small issues, mostly with intermittent double-imaging, but there’s no getting away from the buzz of seeing effects jump from the screen, or the overall engagement offered by scenery with substantial depth.
