Samsung BD-C7500 review | What Hi-Fi?

Samsung is pitching this particular model to the extra style-conscious consumer, who desires a extra svelte, subtle look to their equipment.

But to be fair to Samsung, the only characteristic of note to be given the chop compared to the ‘C6500 is the multi-channel analogue output.

Of path, this is not an issue in the event you own an HDMI-equipped receiver, or plan to run an HDMI cable directly to your TV. Samsung still manages to search out room for 1GB of inner memory and built-in wi-fi connectivity.

Incredibly slender profile
At just 3cm thick, the player's thin profile makes it best possible for wall-mounting.

Alternatively, you'll be able to attach it to the equipped stand so it is perched at an perspective. Touch-sensitive buttons will also be discovered above the corresponding icons at the bottom fringe of the unit.

They're responsive but you'll be able to get the extraordinary fingerprint smear on that shiny, wood-effect finish.

As with its siblings you get get right of entry to to Samsung's [email protected] carrier that allows you to flow media content material from certain suppliers.

YouTube is fast to buffer and the movies are of strangely decent quality.

Fast disc loading times
Fire up the participant and you might be off to a excellent start. Forget boot-up instances, the '7500 has its skates on with regards to loading Blu-ray discs.

Times range between titles, however on some occasions it beats the class-leaders by way of greater than 20 seconds.

What's moderately disappointing is that picture quality isn't a lot stepped forward over its cheaper sibling, the Samsung BD-C6500.

Play Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and on-screen noise is still prevalent and movement still proves to be a stumbling block.

Overall, detail levels are decent for the cash, however never achieve the heights of near opponents

Keeps keep watch over of the song
The good news is it exerts more control over tune than the ‘C6500. There's additionally a greater sense of drama and conviction with movie soundtracks, even supposing the brightness that afflicts the cheaper deck is not utterly stamped out.

Performance-wise, the 'C7500 is arguably considered one of this corporate's higher choices however that is offset by means of the costlier ticket and overshadowed by way of inexpensive and more competent rivals.
