Our take on the Samsung BD-F7500

The metallic silver band around the Samsung BD-F7500 tells you this is no ordinary Blu-ray player. With 4K video upscaling for Ultra HD TVs, this player is prepared to take your movies to the next level. With four times the resolution of Blu-ray's 1080p standard, 4K delivers exquisite detail even on massive displays. And though 4K might be a ways off for some of us, why not ensure your next Blu-ray player is ready for the revolution? Even on current HDTVs, the 'F7500 makes movies and shows look outstanding. Whether you're watching the latest 3D Blu-ray disc or an older DVD, your home theater will feel more like the theater than home.

Dual-core processor for quick response times

As Blu-ray discs are filled with more and more features and extras, disc loading times can be frustratingly long. That's why the 'F7500 features a dual-core processor, which lets this player operate at quicker speeds than most. Not only does it make discs load faster, but it speeds up your access to Internet sources like Netflix®, HuluPlus™, and YouTube™. You can take full advantage of this Wi-Fi-enabled player's host of Internet capabilities without needing endless patience to navigate them.

Much more than just a disc player

Your entertainment options go far beyond discs and Internet movie services with the 'F7500. If you own a Samsung smartphone or tablet, this player lets you stream content from your device to your TV. And Samsung's AllShare™ streaming works with compatible networked PCs to send home movies, digital music files, and photos right to your home theater. Plus, there's a convenient front-panel USB port — perfect for storing BD-Live bonus content, viewing photos or listening to music on a compact flash drive, or plugging in an adapter for a USB wireless keyboard for easy web surfing on your TV.

Samsung BD-F7500 3D Blu-ray player with Wi-Fi and 4K upscaling

The handsome BD-F7500 features 4K video upscaling, built-in Wi-Fi, and a dual-core processor

Impressive connection options

With all the capabilities of HDMI, Blu-ray players are still often equipped with that single output for audio and video. Not so with the BD-F7500. It includes two HDMI outputs for sending audio to your home theater receiver and video directly to your HDTV. This configuration allows you to take advantage of this player's 3D video capabilities even if your receiver doesn't do 3D pass-through. And you can still enjoy the latest surround sound formats, for immersive movie soundtracks and explosive sound effects. Don't have an HDMI-compatible receiver? No problem — you can still do surround sound via the 'F7500's analog multichannel outputs or the optical digital output.

  • plays 3D and standard Blu-ray discs, DVDs, CDs and rewriteable discs
  • built-in Wi-Fi for playing TV shows and movies from Netflix, HuluPlus, and YouTube (subscriptions required for some services)

Samsung bluray BD F7500

Anonymous from Philadelphia on 5/10/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Set up was easy and fast. Found and connected to WiFi immediately. App loading could be faster. I needed a device to connect to a pre-HDMI Denon receiver so the optical audio output was needed. But I had to by-pass the video thru the receiver and went directly to the monitor. No audio synchronization issues with this set up. I would recommend this solution which was wisely suggested by the Crutchfield staff.

Pros: Easy setup and hookup

Cons: App loading and Internet browsing not speedy by today's standards.

Nobody Knows from Bethesda Maryland on 3/26/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My Oppo BDP-83 failed and I needed a Blu-ray player that can output analogue audio via RCA jacks and mix-down the audio fro 5.1 and 7.1 to 2 channel stereo within the player, and with DVD upscaling. The Samsung fit the bill. The player is very light (what does one expect for this price) and so I used some anti-skid plastic matting (for kitchen drawer use), cut to size and placed under the player. Key usability issue: remote is small, buttons are tiny and the unlighted. Not like my Oppo. Worse, no app is provided to allow one to use a cell phone or iPad/iPod touch as a remote controller. Samsung should add this capability to the next generation and charge $25 more, because this type of wireless capability would likely also allow the use of a wireless keyboard, which also make Internet use (as well as entering passwords and such) much easier. For this price, however, it is a good value.

Pros: Inexpensive, but all the key features are available Wireless set-up was straightforward-no problems Very fast Blu-ray loading and DVD loading, compared to my admittedly 6-year old Oppo BDP-83 DVD upscaling is as good as my 6-year old Oppo BDP-83, which was state of the art at the time It has stereo out so I do not need to use a home theatre receiver

Cons: Unlighted remote with very small, closely-spaced buttons Lack of ability to use iPod touch as a remote - which would avoid the need to use the remote. Very light, so the player can slip and slide with a slight push on one of its sides Recognize that the display is minimal - but for most people this is not an issue Instructions for set-up of non-mainstream situations is sketchy Tray is very flimsy

good player

happy with purchase from New York on 3/17/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This player has two HDMI outs. One for sound only. This is good for my older receiver. It has dual N router. Pretty fast. It outputs 4k. Looks great on 4k TV. If it had 3D it would have earned the extra star. I have an older Samsung 3D player. It has a problem with the front display. I hope this unit doesn't do the same.....

Pros: 2 HDMI outs. dual N WiFi. 4k upscale.

Cons: no 3D output.

Finally, a decent upscaling device.

Pros: Easy setup up, amazing HD Netflix playback. Social apps.

Cons: unattractive "3d" logo on top of machine. Web browser pointer slow

Loads Fast

Steve from Upstate NY on 1/5/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got this to play 3D movies with my new 3D TV AND have surround sound with my older 7.1 reciever which is non 3D compatable. Everything works as expected. The disks load almost imediately which I did not expect but would now find hard to live without.

Pros: Fast loads

Cons: Price

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Samsung BD-F7500 is a quality 3D Blu Ray Player. I usually buy Sony products but Now have changed to Samsung. I have recently bought a Samsung UHD curved TV which is also working great. Samsung is the way to go....................

Pros: Quality product

Cons: A little pricey

Samsung BD-F7500

Ed M from Groveland FL on 12/8/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I would like to be fair to this player but at this time I can't give a full review as I feel my unit is defective. When putting in a blu-ray disc the loading experiences abnormal vibrating of unit and many intermittent white video pixels on tv screen. Some times a disc will load without a problem and other times it will have a problem. I also tried many blu-ray's with the same problem. When the machine is turned on for the first time the screen is totally clean with no break up so it seems not to be a HDMI problem. Crutchfield is great and is working to get me a new unit when it comes in. It appears something is wrong with the blue ray drive. A regular DVD loads fine and looks fine. Looks like a Samsung quality control problem. Will update the review after I hook up another unit to evaluate. I purchased a 78 inch UHD TV Samsung from Crutchfield that is so far a 5 star rating that appears to be sensational. Going through quality control of TV now.

Pros: Many features

Cons: Possible Quality control problem

this blu-ray player is easy to setup and reproduces great sound and video

Pros: very simple to operate


Good value

wallyuwl from Kentucky on 11/1/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought an open box version and it looked like it had never been taken out of the box. Film was still on the player and batteries were still packaged. Thanks to the dual core processor the processing is pretty quick for a blu ray player, which is my biggest gripe about them. There are a lot of apps for being a blu ray player, including all of the common ones (hulu, Netflix, amazon video, daily burn, Pandora, etc.). The picture quality is great and the menu is easy to navigate. Also, it has a dual-band Wi-Fi card so you can use the 5Ghz band of your router (if you have a dual band router). For the price I would recommend.

Pros: Picture quality, dual band wireless card, ease of use, value

Cons: Wish it was bigger and flat on the top so other components would fit on top of it better.

Samsung's Blu-ray Wonder

DMA from Dallas, TX on 10/9/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We were looking for a new blu-ray player to replace an aging Panasonic BD-80, which still works fine but has difficulty with some newer discs; its built-in Amazon Prime video app needs some updating as well, but Panasonic no longer provides updates for this model. Since we have been very happy with our Samsung HDTV, we took a chance on this unit - we're so glad we did! It's a night-and-day improvement over the Panasonic. The Samsung fires up with practically no delay, and its user interface is much friendlier than our old player. We haven't tried many of the apps, but the Amazon Video works great. Blu-day movies look fantastic, with a crystal clear image and no tweaking. 3D capability is nice, but we don't have a compatible TV right now. The sound (thru our new Pioneer VSX-1124 via HDMI) is nothing short of amazing! The sonic detail is unbelievable. For those with older receivers lacking HDMI (but possessing the needed multichannel line-in jacks), the BD-7500's 7.1 analog outputs are a great option for getting that "HD sound". We really didn't need to do anything as far as setup - just plug it in! Very user friendly. As always, Crutchfield is fantastic - delivery was very prompt, and the item arrived in perfect condition.

Pros: Ease of use, great picture quality, zippy performance with virtually no lag, easy to read remote.


Great Player

MCL from Oceanside, NY on 9/25/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I previously had the BD-F5900, but the player is well worth the extra dollars, it is a much better machine and have had no problems at all

Pros: Fast Loading, quality build

Cons: On the remote, very easy to press the home button, which mean you have to start all over to play the dvd

Cost Effective

Scrivello from Boston, MA on 9/3/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Relatively inexpensive, considering the range of its capabilities. I own a smart TV, but I have another HDTV which does not have smart capabilities, and this box adds them. Discs load much more quickly than in my old Blu-Ray player. I don't own many 3D discs, and the system the player is hooked up to does not play 3D, but I expect that I could make a direct connection to my smart TV, which CAN display 3D - although I haven't tried that yet. The 4K feature isn't applicable to my 1080P TVs, and I haven't noticed any improvement in picture quality attributable to upscaling. This box is a cost effective upgrade to my system, and I'm pleased by the acquisition.



Samsung Blu-ray - Love it!

Pros: great buy

Great Little Device

Cindy T from Atlanta, GA on 6/15/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The player works as advertised. Maybe even better. The menu is easy to follow. The jacks on the back are well marked. I am using the player for DVD, Blu-Ray, Netflix and Pandora. It is integrated with my Marantz receiver and Hitachi big screen + a little LED TV in the exercise room. The remote is easy to use. Large buttons and makes sense. The Samsung DVD remote does not work the Samsung TV - both bought within the last year (oops!). The picture and sound quality is as awesome as your components are. $200 LED TV has the sound and picture you would expect. The 'good stuff' is really good!




Mike P. from Barnegat, NJ on 6/12/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This DVD player gives a clear shape picture on all DVDs played. I do not have a 4K TV but the picture produced on by HD TV is excellent. Price reduction was the clincher in purchasing this product over another Samsung model.

Pros: Easy to use Fast start up Produces excellent picture Extremely light

Cons: Not as many apps as I had expected Remote should be keyboard type to enter info for internet

I went back and forth on deciding between this Blu Ray player and a Yamaha one to match my A/V receiver and I went with this one because I have a Samsung television and I love it... Not a bad price either for a good quality player... Loads quickly and plenty of apps.... no regrets....

Samsung BD-F7500

EN from Butler, PA on 4/20/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This player does everything I wanted it to. I replaced an older DVD player, and the difference is amazing. Set up is very easy, as was connecting to my Netflix account. It has a ton of apps, most of which I haven't tried yet. Navigation is very easy. The menu system navigation is very intuitive. I would recommend using a wireless keyboard and mouse for data entry functions (when the on-screen keyboard appears). It makes it much quicker to enter data compared to navigating the on-screen keyboard with the direction buttons. The picture is fantastic on my 60" plasma as you would expect from Blu-ray. Surround sound is good too through discs and Netflix. I'm not sure what other apps support surround sound. It seems to me that Crackle does not, but I'd have to play some other movies to make sure. I like having both HDMI and optical audio out, as my receiver is old, has only one optical input (I have an automatic switch for both my cable box and this player), and I can't send surroung sound out to the receiver through my TV. It would have been nice to have two USB ports, so you can keep the wireless keyboard connected while viewing USB content. But that's not a big deal since I probably won't be using USB content that often. It's a little pricey, but that's to be expected for a new product that contains about everything you'd want in a smart player. Overall I'm glad I purchased it.

Pros: Ease of setup. Easy navigation. Lots of settings. Picture and sound quality. Loads quickly.

Cons: Price.

happy so far

DAV from Melrose, MA on 4/15/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm happy with this so far. I upgraded from a prior version Samsung blu-ray player. The older one has started to to weird things, like the disk drawer opening in the middle of a playback. I'm hoping this doesn't start doing the same sort of things.




mrfortenberry from Newburgh, NY 12550 on 4/8/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Many people have shared their opinion that 3D is going no where, but I wanted 3D and bought the BD-F7500 to both upscale to my Samsung UN65F9000 and also to see 3D movies I have missed and those I saw at theaters. I did my research between active and passive and chose Samsung's active 3D. I watched IronMan3 and believe the experience is every bit as good as the movie theater. My next movie target is Avatar. It was one of the better 3D experiences and I expect the same at least on my home theater. The player obviously contributes its part and I am very satisfied with my Crutchfield selections.

Pros: the perfect companion for my Samsung UN65F9000

Cons: There aren't that many 3D movies out there but I love the ones I have tried.

Why Did I Wait So Long?

Jim of Ken from Kenosha, WI on 2/28/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Put this off for years - afraid of dealing with hours of set-up and endless cables. Nope - 1 cable, no time at all, and it's up and running! Fast loading, easy to upgrade, many nice features. (It will take me a while to use them all...) Works seamlessly with my wi-fi. I also feel better knowing that I can call for support if needed (that is worth the few extra dollars I paid over other online suppliers)!!

Pros: easy setup, fast loading, great features

Cons: NOne

Ordered this blu-ray player with help of Crutchfield online help. Connected easily to our new TV and hubby is happy with it all.

Pros: Easy to connect, easy to use. HD channels are soooooooo nice!

Cons: Technically hubby having a bit of a problem with the remote, but hopefully will figure it all out.

The player has a exellent picture and sound. I am very impressed.

Pros: very easy to use, excellent picture and sound quality

Cons: none


Timewarpone from California on 1/23/2014

Works great with PLEX. I downloaded the PLEX app from the Samsung app store and I was good to go. I bought this to replace a 3 year old Samsung BD-D5500 which was good but not as good as this one. The BD-F7500 loads twice as fast. The Blu Ray picture is stunning. Very easy to set up. There is even a 2nd HDMI port in the back for AUDIO only. This should come in handy if your surround sound receiver does not have 3D HDMI standby pass through switching but decodes for 7.1 Dolby True-HD and 5.1 DTS-HD MA because in order to get these sound tracks you have to have an HDMI audio hookup. So one HDMI output to your TV and the other to your receiver. (The First HDMI Port Carries Both Video & Audio). The browser could be a little bit better. Quirky at times but I don't use that feature all that much. I am hooked on the load times and the picture quality.

Pros: Dual Core Processor & 2 HDMI Outputs also the only company I am aware of that lets you download apps from their app store

Cons: Browser a bit quirky at times

Samsung BD7500

Sil33 from Springfield MA on 1/14/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great unit, quality build and good video up conversion for the price. I have a 720p TV currently but will be upgrading to 4k soon. I watched some DVD content to try out the up conversion and was very pleased. The picture was smooth and glasslike. Blacks were deep and the contrast popped. For the sale price, it's not a high end player but only videophiles would notice the subtle differences. Well worth the money, highly recommended.

Pros: Great picture and user interface. Price and build quality.

Cons: None

Samsung Smart Blu-Ray

JAG from Seattle, WA on 12/17/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to set up out-of-the-box once the software was updated. This required a call to Samsung where they kept me on the line longer to "update my information" than to resolve my problem. Blu-ray works great but the remote is terrible. The buttons are too small and you can't use it in the dark. I paired this with a projection screen where a dark room is necessary - so not a compatible product choice.

Pros: Smart. Easy to set up. Easy to navigate. Easy to organize preferences..

Cons: No keyboard or smart phone availability to navigate input screens. You have to toggle around a keyboard which is tedious. Remote buttons are too small and you cannot use it in the dark.

Disappointed in Samsung

Ron B from Croton, MI on 11/21/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this blue ray player basically for the internet functions. I am really disappointed with the remote. I have a newer Sony TV and all though they have dedicated buttons for contolling(TVpower, input, etc) they are not programable for any TV except for a Samsung. (shame on you, Samsung) I called Crutchfield to confirm and they said that the remote is Samsung only. I would not buy this unit or other Samsung products just because of this feature.


Cons: Remote sucks.

Although Crutchfield exceeded my expectations, I am somewhat disappointed with the Blu-ray player. Some discs I recorded don't properly play or freeze up during playback. Some ripped content on my WD USB hard drive hangs up during playback. These titles played fine on previous equipment which was 8 years old. User interface seems fast but is actually rather lackluster for the price of the unit. I expected to be wowed by this player. I am not.

Pros: Fast loading. Attractive design.

Cons: Doesn't always play content flawlessly. Interface is just OK for the price. App selection is fairly limited.

Blue ray at its best

Samsung BD-F7500 from Germantown, MD on 10/15/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent picture quality and load time. Also 3D capable. Works great on my new Samsung UN55F9000 also from Crutchfield.

Pros: Thin and easy to set up. Great signal and load sped.

Cons: Would be better at a better price. But still worth it

Great Machine!!

Matt from Boston, MA on 10/8/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This Blue Ray player was my first foray into the Blue Ray market and bought this unit based on the reviews that other Crutchfield customers had posted. I put off buying a Blue Ray player thinking my regular DVD player was adequate which it was. I am totally blown away with the picture quality and the ease of set up this unit provides. The audio quality is much improved also through my Onkyo surround system. Apps are limited compared to Roku but I must say the picture quality of Netflix streaming movies along with the associated audio using the Netflix app on the Samsung is far superior to the Netflix app on the Roku. I wouldn't get too excited about the web browser though. I find it very slow and cumbersome to use. Overall, I am very happy with this machine and highly recommend it.

Pros: Great picture, very easy setup, awesome audio. Great picture and audio from the apps as well.

Cons: None except for the awkward web browser.

Rey from North Charleston, SC on 10/4/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very decent BD player. I settled for this due to the unbeatable price. I wanted an Oppo, but the least expensive one is $500.00! This player looks great with the silver trim around black main unit. It is also a very good BD player. Quick loading (although, that is really moot when you have to navigate through the "Coming soon" propaganda at the beginning of every BD/DVD before you can actually watch the movie). Two HDMI outputs (read Cons below). p.s. CRUTCHFIELD RULES!!!

Pros: Very good looking, solidly built unit with great features. Analog 7.1 outputs. Front USB for external media. Built-in Wi-Fi sets up effortlessly. A definite PLUS, my last one (a Sharp) was a nightmare to set up.

Cons: Second HDMI outputs only audio. No video! I was going to hook it to a receiver (for movies) and directly to my TV for external media that doesn't require surround sound.

BD Web Browser App Not What I Hoped For!

DigitalUpgrade from Tallahassee, FL on 9/29/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased the BD-F7500 as a hoped-for key piece in the digital upgrade of my home; i.e., Wi-Fi router, BluRay, printer, and smartphone. I planned to use the BD as a Wi-Fi bridge to bring the Web and Movie services to my older HD TV (it has no Ethernet of Wi-Fi), and to mirror smartphone media through the BD to the TV. First, BD set-up was quick and easy and connecting to the Wi-Fi network a breeze. Downloading the installed apps was not quite as easy, but went well; however, unwanted apps linked to Samsung's business partners cannot be deleted, which restricts the amount of memory available for apps I may want to add later. The key feature of the Smart Hub is the Web Browser App, which I found to be highly unreliable. It is slow (clunky), its keyboard does not sync well with common search engines, and it seems confused by an external USB keyboard (but using an external USB mouse is great). Worst of all, the Browser App is highly crash-prone when streaming high-content video from typical Web sources, especially when I attempt to view content in full screen mode. (Yes, I checked the network connection, checked for software update, and reloaded the apps.) That said, when the modem to Wi-Fi to BD/Web browser to HD TV links are all working, its great entertainment. Today I watched 10,000 Japanese singing Ode to Joy in German. Awesome! Note: Smartphone is on preorder, so I have not yet tried mirroring.

Pros: Disc player provides great video to HD TV. Set-up was quick and easy and connecting to a Wi-Fi network a breeze.

Cons: The Web Browser App is slow, has quirky search mechanics, and crashes often.

Great Product !

Kevin M from Louisville, KY on 9/20/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Samsung BD F7500 has a great picture and loads discs very quickly. Its easy to set up and has a lot of very good features including the best 3D picture on the market. I have it hooked up to my Smart TV by Samsung and its amazing.

Pros: Thin and takes up very little space.

Cons: A little expensive but worth the cost.

great player

KerryJ from Cheyenne, WY on 9/11/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This player is a great product for the price. It has looks to match my 8000 series samsung and plays alot better than my first player. The load times are way better than my old player and the audio/video setup is more customizable. The ability to send an unprocessed audio signal to my stereo is a huge plus. This lets my stereo do the processing thus giving a truer, uncolored, unwatered down sound.

Pros: styling, audio options, price, wi-fi, load speed, picture quality


expensive but worth it

Vic B from Olney, Md on 8/2/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased this just after I received my new Samsung 60" smart TV from Crutchfield. Since the TV was 3D I figured I should at least be able to play 3 Blue Ray's and since it was on sale it was a no brainer. It was easy to set up and the TV immediately recognized the player on AnyNet. It loads much faster that my old Samsung BD player and the quality of the picture is also better. If your looking for an upgrade to your current BD player this ones great, particularly if you have a Samsung TV. The AnyNet on Samsung products in a plus!

Pros: Good looking unit, quick and easy to set up, great picture!

Cons: None

Love the BluRay!

Sue from Massachusetts on 7/30/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is our first bluray player. I'm glad we got more than the basic model, because we basically have a Roku or AppleTV device included with the player. We use apps such as Pandora, Netflix, Accuweather, etc., to listen to music, watch free or rental videos, play our CDs, play our DVDs. We can use only the Samsung remote to turn on both the bluray player and our TV, select the appropriate source, and control the volume. One remote needed! The only negative is that it takes some time to load an app. If there is a way to use a keyboard when doing searches within an app, the product would be perfect (there may be a way to do that; we haven't investigated yet). Excellent picture quality. The Crutchfield phone rep was knowledgeable and helpful. It was delivered in 3 days. Great service.

Pros: Excellent picture quality, wide selection of apps, wi-fi connectivity, useful remote.

Cons: App upload time is somewhat slow, but comparable to other brands; different remote keys perform differently on different apps or menu screens.

Fast & Furious-Blu-Ray Player

Rock N Ron from Meriden,CT on 7/18/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you cannot wait for your Blu-Ray player to load up the movie this is the player to get ! This baby takes about 20 seconds to load a movie and start playing it compared to other brands that can take up to a couple of minutes to start playing the movie.

Pros: Fast Boot up time. Plenty of apps to use. Up scales to 4K video(if you have a TV that plays it). HI DEF play back. I am able to play stored movies from the USB Drive input without a special Media player.

Cons: A little pricey and the player Unit has a BIG foot print but is fine with me to get all those features that a Techie like me wants.


Mr.R from Highland Park, CA on 7/13/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

very good bluray player. this BD-F7500/ZA is by far the best bluray player I have purchased. I was looking for something that was new and up to date and this is what I found. over all I am very happy with it. I immediately put on Tron Legacy on Bluray Disc to test the loading time and it loaded the disc to the main menu screen for the movie in about 35 seconds. that is blazing fast knowing that most bluray player have had issues loading all movies very slowly. I bought it for my 8 year old autistic son because he loves to watch movies and hates for it to take long, I replaced my older Samsung BD-C7500 with the BD-F7500 and I don't regret it. works as advertised. setting up Wi-Fi was pretty easy, when it comes to navigating the player, its a bit tricky but will eventually learn it.

Pros: slim, fast loading time on bluray and dvd, built-in wifi, sleek design. small remote, fast power on and start up time.

Cons: cannot use the usb for MP4 videos vs other sony bluray players that allow you to use that feature. other than that its perfect!

solid so far

Anonymous from Grafton, OH on 7/2/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Setup was easy. Once networking was setup, the player did a software update automatically. HDMI-CEC worked as expected with my Onkyo Receiver and Samsung TV. Apps work ok. So far limited to YouTube, and other online streaming services. The HD playback is quite good with themand the slow broadband in farm country, no buffering pauses. Have not tried 3D yet, but 2D disc playback is as expected. DLNA movie playback is ok on some formats, still experimenting with supported formats.

Pros: Looks good, easy setup, supports amazon instant video

Cons: Digital video format support may take some experimentation

KYKID from Shepherdsville, KY on 5/30/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted a New 3D Blu Ray Player that had 2 HDMI Outs. My Receiver does not support 3D. I went with this Model. It does what it says about 3D. But. Watching some reg. DVD`s. I did not like what it did for up conversion. Also. I wanted one that would play Movies from a USB Drive, and Movies that I burned to a DVD-R. It would not play either one. A screen keeps coming up and saying. That it can not play this format. I made some changes on my Computer. But. It still would not work. So I sent it back. I bought a Sony from Crutchfield. Model#BDP-S5100. It does 3D, plays DVD`s that I recorded movies on, and my USB plays fine also. This was also less money.

Purchased on recommendation of Crutchfield rep after reviewing existing equipment and desired functions. It worked perfectly - even though the box said it won't. Just needed a little coaching from Crutchfield.

Pros: Instant sync with LG TV - that wouldn't access Amazon Prime. The Samsung found the app with no problem.

Cons: None

Jim from Houston, Tx on 4/25/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been a Samsung fan now for some time, with most of my entertainment coming through one of their products. This new Blu-ray player is exceptional, and I am quite pleased at its stellar performance. Whether I insert a DVD or Blu-ray disc, the response is stunning, and with 3D capabilities, it simply blows your mind. I wasn't all that convinced that 3D was any different until I paired this Samsung player with my Samsung 3D LED TV, but the results are amazing. Samsung seems to be at the Top of their game in everything they touch.

Pros: Great Design, Tray is very stable, Response is stunning, Wi-Fi converges almost automatically with other equipment, very easy setup, works well with 3rd party add-on like Bose, and the video imaging is stunning.

Cons: Right now, I can't think of any, my experience so far has been flawless.

Disc & USB Compatibility

Disc Compatibility: The Samsung BD-F7500 Blu-ray disc player is compatible with many disc types.

Disc Type Disc Description
Blu-ray BD-ROM, BD-3D, BD-R, BD-RE
CD CD-Audio, CD-R, CD-RW

Blu-ray Disc Overview: Blu-ray Disc (BD) is a high-definition disc format designed to take advantage of today's high quality HDTVs. The resolution is up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) and the data transfer rate is up to 40 mbps. Blu-ray Discs and players offer several advantages over the standard DVD format:

  • Better Picture Quality: Blu-ray Disc is a true high-definition format offering video at 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or 1080/24p resolution. While standard DVDs look very good on an HDTV, they don't provide a high-definition signal (not even when you use an up-converting DVD player). Blu-ray Disc delivers an extraordinarily sharp, clean, detailed picture, with deeper, richer colors.
  • Better Sound Quality: In addition to the same multi-channel sound formats you're accustomed to with DVD (Dolby Digital and DTS), Blu-ray Disc offers Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, and uncompressed 7.1 channel PCM.
  • Greater Storage Capacity: What makes Blu-ray Disc's superior picture and sound possible is the much higher storage capacity of Blu-ray Disc discs. A single-layer Blu-ray Disc can hold 25 gigabytes of data, over five times the amount a standard DVD can hold. Dual-layer Blu-ray Discs hold 50 gigabytes, which equates to nine hours of High Definition or 23 hours of Standard Definition video, plus high-resolution multi-channel audio and the added features and material that require multiple discs with standard DVD.
  • Backward Compatible: To ensure backward-compatibility with your existing library of discs, Blu-ray Disc players use a dual-laser mechanism: a blue laser for playing high-definition Blu-ray Discs, and a conventional red laser for playing DVDs and audio CDs.
Note: Like DVD, BD uses region codes. The region code on your disc must match the region code on your player, otherwise the disc will not play. The BD-F7500 is Blu-ray region A and DVD region 1. Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized recording of copyrighted material.

Firmware/Software Upgrade: As Blu-Ray technology continues to evolve, new disc types with enhanced functionality will become available. In order for you to enjoy this new functionality, you will likely be required to update the firmware in your player. These firmware updates will become available for downloading from the Internet. The player's Software Upgrade menu allows you to upgrade the player's software & firmware for these performance improvements & additional services. You can upgrade via Network or USB.

Note: The tested Samsung Blu-ray player contained firmware version BSP-F7500WWB-1003.2 (as of 3/28/2013). Visit the Samsung Download Center for the latest Firmware/Software updates.

Video File Support: The Samsung BD-F7500 Blu-ray disc player supports the following video files recorded onto BD-RE, BD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD-RW, and DVD-R discs.

Video Codec Resolution Frame Rate Bitrate Audio Codec
H.264 BP/MP/HP 1920 x 1080 6-30 fps 30 Mbps Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS (Core), LPCM, AAC, HE-AAC, WMA, MP3
Motion JPEG

Music File Support: The Samsung BD-F7500 Blu-ray disc player supports the following music files recorded onto BD-RE, BD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD-R, and CD-R/RW discs.

Audio Codec Sampling Rates (kHz) Bitrate (kbps)
MP3 (.mp3) N/A up to 320 kbps
WMA (.wma) 8, 11, 16, 22, 32, 44.1, or 48 5-455

Photo File Support: The Samsung BD-F5100 Blu-ray disc player supports the following still-image files recorded onto BD-RE, BD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD-R, and CD-R/RW discs.

Photo Codec Resolution
JPEG (.jpeg/.jpg/.jpe) 15,360 x 8,640
PNG (.png)

USB Port (with ripping): The Samsung Blu-ray disc player features a front-panel USB (type-A) port that allows playback of  MP3/WMA audio files, JPEG/PNG still-image files, and MKV video files stored on a USB mass storage class device. Your USB device must be formatted in FAT16, FAT32, or NTFS. The player also allows you to rip CD-Audio to USB. The ripping function converts CD audio from an inserted disc to the MP3 format and saves the converted files on a USB device connected to the Blu-ray player. In addition, the USB port also allows you to perform software upgrades using a USB flash drive. In addition, it can be used to add more local storage for BD-Live content.

Note: A USB device consuming more than 500mA requires a separate power supply device for normal operation.

Video Section

Dual HDMI Outputs: The Samsung Blu-ray player is equipped with dual HDMI (v.1.4) outputs for separating audio and video signals (the "Sub" HDMI output does not output video signal). HDMI simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio all in one cable. You can choose to use the dual HDMI outputs to send video only to your HDTV and audio only to your A/V receiver. The HDMI output resolution can be set to 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or 4K when playing a DVD or Blu-ray Disc.

Note: The Blu-ray player provides no analog video outputs.

4K Video Up-conversion: When connected to your TV using the HDMI output, the BD-F7500 scales the output of a standard DVD signal to HD-compatible 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or 4K (3,840 x 2,160). 4K provides four times higher resolution than current 1080p high-definition content. The unit also supports 480p and 480i output if your television is not HD-compatible.

Note: To enjoy 4K, you must have a compatible 4K television.

1080/24p: Movies are typically filmed at 24 frames per second and some Blu-ray Discs use the same frame rate. If your TV will accept a 1080/24p signal, the BD-F7500 can pass the signal in its native form, without converting the video.

Progressive Mode: The Samsung Blu-ray disc player provides a Progressive mode to improve picture quality when viewing a DVD movie.

Full HD 3D: The Samsung BD-F7500 3D Blu-ray disc player supports 3D playback of high-definition 3D Blu-ray discs when connected to a 3D-Ready HDTV via HDMI, along with wearing a pair 3D vision glasses. You can select from three 3D modes to suit your viewing needs.

  • Auto: Automatically detects the 3D capability of your connected TV and play a 3D Blu-ray disc in 3D or 2D accordingly.
  • 3D-to-3D: 3D Blu-ray disc played in 3D mode regardless of your connected TV. When your connected TV does not support 3D, you may see a black screen.
  • 3D-to-2D: 3D Blu-ray disc is played in 2D image at all times. Choose this to view a 3D Blu-ray disc without 3D effect.

Deep/x.v.Color: Deep Color allows more accurate color reproduction with deep color depth. The BD-F7500 must be connected to a Deep Color compatible TV via HDMI for this feature to function.  The BD-F7500 also supports x.v.Color; meaning it's ready for x.v.Color discs, such as AVCHD discs (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format).

Picture Settings: The BD-F7500 offers various Picture Settings to match your TV and fit your viewing needs.

  • Screen Size: You can enter the actual screen size (up to 116") of your TV, so that the player can adjust the image according to the screen size and display an optimal image.
  • TV Aspect: You can adjust the video output of the BD-F7500 to match the screen-type of your television. You can choose from 4:3 Letter-Box, 4:3 Pan-Scan, 16:9 Wide, and 16:9 Normal.
  • Picture Modes: This function enables you to adjust video quality when the player is connected to your TV.
    • Standard: Suitable for most viewing applications.
    • Movie: Suitable for watching movies.
    • Dynamic: Increases sharpness.
    • User: Lets you adjust the sharpness and noise reduction function manually.

BD Wise: BD Wise is Samsung's latest inter-connectivity feature. When you connect Samsung products with BD-Wise to each other via HDMI, the optimum resolution will be set automatically. It will also automatically optimize internet video by boosting image quality to sharpen imagery and ensure text is legible. BD Wise will even resize the video ratio so that video edges are not cropped off.

Bonus View: The Bonus View feature provides picture-in-picture capability with select Blu-ray Disc titles. You can view addition content (such as director/actor commentary) in a small display window while the movie is playing.

Audio Section

Dolby Digital/DTS Surround Decoding: The BD-F7500 can decode the following Dolby Digital/DTS surround formats; Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True HD, DTS HD High Resolution, and DTS-HD Master Audio. The player must be connected to a Dolby Digital/DTS surround AV receiver which also supports these same formats via optical or HDMI input.

Digital Output/Surround Mode Chart: You can set the unit's Digital Output (HDMI or Optical) to match the capabilities of your connected AV receiver.

Disc Type Audio Stream PCM Bitstream (Unprocessed) Bitstream (Re-encode)

Audio Adjustments: The Blu-ray disc player provides the following audio adjustments.

  • PCM Downsampling: This feature lets you choose to have 96kHz PCM signals downsampled to 48kHz before they are output to your AV receiver.
  • Downmixing Mode: This feature lets you select the multichannel downmix method that is compatible with your stereo receiver. You can choose to have the player downmix to normal stereo or to surround compatible stereo.
  • DTS Neo:6 Mode: You can enjoy multichannel sound via the HDMI output from a 2 channel audio source.
  • Dynamic Range Control: When movie soundtracks are played at low volume or from smaller speakers, the system can apply appropriate compression to make low-level content more intelligible and prevent dramatic passages from getting too loud. This is only active when a Dolby Digital signal is detected.
  • Audio Sync: In some cases when the player is connected to a TV, the audio signal may not synchronize with the video signal. If this occurs, adjust the audio delay time to match the video signal. You can set the audio delay time between 0 msec and 200 msec.

Speaker Settings: The Samsung Blu-ray player lets you select the size, level, and distance of the speakers you have in your system.

  • Size: Select Large or Small for each speaker you have in your system.
  • Level: Adjusts the relative loudness of each speaker from -6 to +6dB.
  • Distance: Adjusts the relative distance of each speaker from the listening position, up to 30'.

Analog + Digital Outputs: The Samsung Blu-ray disc player is equipped with both analog (7.1ch RCA) and digital (optical) outputs.

  • 7.1ch Analog Outputs: The Blu-ray player is fitted with 7.1ch analog outputs to connect to your AV receiver's multi-channel inputs.
  • Digital Audio Output: The Blu-ray disc player features a digital optical (toslink) output. The player's audio menu allows you to select the digital audio format that is passed through the optical digital output; bitstream (Dolby Digital or DTS) or 2-channel PCM.

Network/Internet Functions

Samsung's Dual Core Processor: Samsung's Dual Core processing speeds allow you to perform multiple tasks at the same time, such as using an app while downloading another one. It also enables faster web browsing and application access.

Network Connection (wired/wireless): You can set up the Samsung Blu-ray player so that it can access your home network and online Samsung Apps through your local area network (LAN) using a wired connection (RJ-45 Ethernet) or wireless connection (built-in WiFi). You can setup a wired network connection automatically or manually. You can setup the wireless network connection using these four methods; PBC (WPS), Auto Network Search, One Foot, or Manually.

Note: The Blu-ray player's built-in WiFi supports IEEE 802.11A/B/G/N wireless LAN networks and WEP (open/shared), WPA-PSK (TKIP/AES), WPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES) network security.

WiFi Direct: When using WiFi Direct, you can connect directly with other devices without using a wireless router. You'll be able to wirelessly transfer personal content (such as photos & videos) to the Samsung Blu-ray player without connecting to your home network. WiFi Direct completely bypasses your WiFi access point/router, so it's easy to set up. Streaming of copy-protected content and other certain formats are not supported.

AllShare/DLNA Certified: The Samsung Blu-ray disc player's AllShare function, along with its DLNA Certification allow you to watch videos (MPEG), photos (JPEG/PNG/BMP/MPO), and listen to music (MP3/WMA/AAC/FLAC/WAV) saved on your Windows PC (or other DLNA Certified media server) through the TV via its Ethernet (LAN) port or built-in WiFi (wireless). This eliminates the need to copy your photo, video, and music files to a separate USB storage device.

Note: Windows PCs with XP and Vista installed require Samsung's PC Share Manager software, which can be downloaded for free at Not compatible with older Windows OS versions and Mac.

Screen Mirroring: This Screen Mirroring function lets you view the screen of your WiFi-enabled Samsung Android smart phone or tablet on your TV you have connected to the Samsung Blu-ray player.

Samsung Apps: Once you have connected the Samsung Blu-ray player to your home network, you gain access to Samsung Apps. Samsung Apps lets you download for pay or free-of-charge applications and services to the Blu-ray player.

I can't answer that, I don't use a keyboard with my TV. [ VICTOR R  Jan 05, 2015 ]
I can't help you much on this as I've never used a keyboard with my player but it is a awesome player on 3D , blue ray and movies! [ GENE  Jan 05, 2015 ]
The Netflix App on the Samsung BD-F7500 usually works great. I have the BD player linked over a wired connection to the home network to ensure the best transfer speeds. Not sure what issues you experienced with Panasonic, but I will note that I have experienced a common loading hang or error when I try to resume video from a prior viewing. Returning to the Samsung Home screen & reloading the Netflix App clears the problem up. Had a similar issues with my older LG BD player, too. Not sure if is due to how Netflix handles requests from 3rd party apps or if it just our local internet. [ MICHAEL  Sep 21, 2014 ]
I have not used this player for Netflix. [ JOHNNY  Sep 21, 2014 ]
We have the Samsung blu-ray player in our family room (set-up with an Infinity surround sound system that we also bought from Crutchfield) and have had no problems connecting to Netflix using this player. Hope that is helpful. DSV [ DEBORAH S  Sep 21, 2014 ]
Nope. Works very well. [ Guest  Sep 21, 2014 ]
I don't currently have Netflix, but have no problem with Amazon, Hulu and Vudu. [ BARBARA J  Sep 21, 2014 ]
we had no problems connecting to Netflix, however, I did have connection problems with MLB.COM.... it would stop a lot every few minutes, went to Apple TV and all is well.... use the Samsung for disk only. [ PAUL  Sep 21, 2014 ]
Julie, If you go to the Crutchfield site and then go to the Samsung BD-F7500 and hit the Details Tab it states and lists all the formats it supports. Additionally on the same Details Tab on the right side there is a section the says "Whats In The Box", there you can download the users manual which provides more detail on page 35. I haven't personally played music on the two BD-F7500's I own but based on all the info it certainly appears it does. Vic [ VICTOR R  Sep 18, 2014 ]
I haven't tried. Sorry I couldn't help [ EDWARD  Sep 18, 2014 ]
There is some noise when playing, but it is very minimal. As you are likely to have the volume at an adequate level and not be sitting right next to the player, you wont be able to hear it spinning. [ JOSHUA  Jan 21, 2014 ]
I don't hear mine at all - very quiet. [ Lawrence  Jan 13, 2014 ]
I haven't noticed the noise [ CHRIS J  Jan 11, 2014 ]
I had to get close to it to hear 3 sec of spin..... very quiet [ PAUL  Jan 11, 2014 ]
I AJ e ones it for over 2 months. The disc drive is quite as a mouse and loads Blu-Ray movies fast. very pleased [ JOSEPH L  Jan 11, 2014 ]
VERY quiet. [ WILLIAM F  Jan 11, 2014 ]
It is extremely quiet. I carried the experiment to answer your question: - watching a movie you cannot hear it - TV on mute sitting on the couch you cannot hear it unless you are really focused on trying to hear it spin - on mute my ear 10 inch away, you can hear it spin quietly. Hope this helps. [ BERTRAND  Jan 11, 2014 ]
The Samsung BD-F7500 is and has been quite remarkable for me. As for the question of noise, there is none, unless you lay your ear on the device. I can hear the tray open and close, but that is the same as with any other device like it. [ JIM  Jan 11, 2014 ]
Thanks for your response [ Raj  Jan 06, 2014 ]
ABSOLUTLEY [ ROBERT A  Jan 06, 2014 ]
I use my Apple TV to access YouTub e so I am not a good source of info for you. [ ROB A  Jan 06, 2014 ]
Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone or online chat. They will be able to help determine which models have the features you are looking for. [ Jeff  Jan 04, 2014 ]  Staff
