Overview

Our take on the Samsung BD-J6300

I have a 10-year-old TV that still produces a great picture, but it has no Internet smarts whatsoever. I could just pick up a little media streamer box, but I subscribe to Netflix's streaming service and disc service. On certain titles I definitely want to enjoy Blu-ray's superior picture and sound quality. So for someone like me, Samsung's BD-J6300 Blu-ray player is a smart way to go.

The cure for a dumb TV is a smart Blu-ray player

Samsung BD-J6300

I have a 10-year-old TV that still produces a great picture, but it has no Internet smarts whatsoever. I could just pick up a little media streamer box, but I subscribe to Netflix's streaming service and disc service. On certain titles I definitely want to enjoy Blu-ray's superior picture and sound quality. So for someone like me, Samsung's BD-J6300 Blu-ray player is a smart way to go.

This player's built-in dual-band Wi-Fi® provides speedy access to streaming video services like Netflix®, Hulu®, and Amazon Instant Video. Binge-watching your favorite TV shows has never been easier. Want to throw on some tunes? Play a CD, stream from a music service like Pandora® or Spotify®, or wirelessly connect to a compatible networked PC via DLNA technology and play songs from your computer.

Impressive picture and sound

The BD-J6300 helps make the most of your high-definition TV. It plays Blu-ray titles in 1080p HD and offers video upconversion for standard DVDs. If you have a 4K Ultra HD TV, this player has 4K upscaling so it can join in the fun. Blu-ray also lets you experience the full sonic capabilities of your home theater speakers as well — lossless surround sound formats are supported, including Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD®.

Do more with your USB thumb drives

Like a lot of Blu-ray players, the BD-J6300 features a front-panel USB port that lets you play back of a variety of music, photo, and video files stored on a thumb drive. But unlike most players, this one also allows you to rip CD audio to a thumb drive in MP3 format.

Product Highlights:

The Samsung 4K upscaling BD-J6300 bluray player has an astonishing pic

Richard from Ottawa, ON on 3/6/2018

I just bought the Samsung BD-J6300 and I must say I am astonished at the amazing picture quality from 4K upscaling. I played Alien Covenant and Interstellar. The picture quality in Alien Covenant was so sharp it was like 3d! Interstellar was not quite as good but still excellent. Not only that, this player has an optical audio cable, and when I connected it to my Philips soundbar for the first time, the sound was amazing. The only reservation I have is that it takes up to 20 seconds to load some movies, such as Interstellar, but not all. Alien Covenant and The Martian loaded quickly. Richard

Pros: See my review.

Cons: See my review.

Linda from Idaho Falls, ID on 1/10/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We ordered two of the Samsung players because our TVs are Samsung and most commands work on both remotes. I specifically wanted lights on the front to indicate what the player is doing and it seems that has been hard to find. We are senior citizens and we need some bells and whistles that the younger crowd may not need.

Pros: Size Brand

Cons: I don't like the controls on top of the player.

Worth the price but lacking in apps

Jonathan from Ft Wayne, IN on 11/29/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Impressed with the picture and sound quality. I am kind of disappointed in the fact that a player of this caliber doesn't connect to the CDDB. I put in several CD's only to find that this player doesn't display the CD information. I hope Samsung puts an application in their app hub ( that is lacking in usable apps) in the line-up. I also hope that in the future samsung partners up with Google to allow the play store to be added instead up using the Samsung Hub. The normal loaded apps like Netflix and Hulu and Youtube come standard. But it'd be nice to have access to apps that Google Play offer as well. I'm not that knowledgeable about whether the Google Play store can be loaded but I have read Samsung is using their own OS (Tizen) and not google android.

Pros: Great picture and sound. Nice price. nice features (4k, 3d, wifi), expandable external storage space via USB.

Cons: It has apps but most of them I've never heard of or they lead to pay per use. CD's don't pull in CD information despite the fact this player can access the internet. Small HDD.

Jeffrey from Spring Hill, FL on 10/18/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The device is compact and fits easily on any bookshelf. Easy to install/setup and operate (just using the DVD payer option). the picture quality is excellent Lots of extra features: internet capability, built-in dual-band Wi-Fi® for streaming video and music from dedicated apps like Netflix®, Hulu®, etc. best bang for the buck. Hope it lasts a long time as did my old device

Pros: Simple to set up Excellent picture All features and controls are easily accessed on one's TV display

Cons: No controls (buttons, etc) on the front of the unit, but to get this feature (as in my old Panasonic DVD S35) you need to move to a $400+ device and it is not worth the extra cash The remote does mot light up

Surprise

George from Jacksonville, FL on 9/30/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My first entry into the Samsung family after rumors about their quality, this from many, many years ago, so stuck with RCA, Zenith, (before blu ray and dvds) while they were around and finally Sony family. Everything okay until close strikes of lightening drove Sony unit BDP S6200 a little loopy. Tried Roku as replacement but that didn't work. I ventured to J6300 and was I surprised, small, compact and works beautifully, picture upgraded, internet movies much improved and simple to hookup and enjoy..

Dave from Minneapolis, MN on 8/12/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Loads quickly. Easy to operate. Setup was fairly easy. 1st RedBox Blu-Ray (Sony Pictures - Passengers) would load up to the top menu fine but when trying to play it an error message "disc restrictions" came up and we were unable to watch it. The region was correct, the player had the latest updates loaded, but some other incompatibility between the disc and the player exists. I haven't gone to Samsung yet for a solution but I am sure it will be a hassle to get it figured out. I would have rated it 5 stars if it wasn't for the incompatibility issue right out of the box.

Pros: Loads fast, easy to setup, plays regular DVDs well

Cons: Has trouble with some BluRay Discs

Crutchfield response on 8/21/2017 Dave, we're sorry you're having issues with your Blu-Ray. If the problem continues, please reach out to our tech support team. They can either help get it working the way it should, or possibly return it for an exchange or refund.

Excellent Blu-Ray Player

Robin from Fairfax, VA on 5/12/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I paired the BD-J6300 Blu-Ray play with a new Samsung TV. Setup could not be easier: Just plug the HDMI-out cable to the HDMI-in on the TV. I selected this player for the 4K video upscaling, but it also supports 3D video as well. It also has built-in dual-band Wi-Fi for streaming video and music from dedicated apps, like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon , YouTube, Pandora, and Spotify for example, and that's cool, but so does the TV, and even the sound bar I bought, so that's a freebie throw in that isn't really needed. The picture quality is excellent, and as others have said, offered at a great price. I've found that Crutchfield is a great place to buy electronics. The only reason I rated it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the first DVD I watched had some areas that caused the movie to freeze. It may have been the quality of the Blu-Ray DVD (from Redbox), but I would really prefer that a play could recover from bad spots on a DVD on its own.

Pros:

Cons:

Great product

Bob from Charlottesville, VA on 4/28/2017

Very Easy to setup & use. Even though I have a slightly older Samsung TV (no built in WiFi), this unit provides all of the WiFi connectivity easily. Plays BluRay & DVD's perfectly - I have not tried music CD's yet. A very good product at a good price - thanks Crutchfield!

Brian from Spanish Fork, UT on 2/16/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For a person who doesn't want parental controls this is a great player. I read a review that said it has parental controls. It does not. You can control the settings on what level disc you play, but the online apps are wide open. On my brand new Samsung smart 4k tv and on my old panasonic blue ray I can disable the online apps and require a password. If you are concerned about the content your kids and grandkids can access online, this is not the blu ray for you.

Pros: Great in every other way

Cons: No on-line apps parental control.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Samsung BD-J6300 is a good feature-packed Blu-ray player, packed in a compact sexy little unit. It performs quite well and provides a terrific picture. It's a great player for the price.

Pros: Lots of features. Small footprint. Starts up quickly. Loads quickly. Easy to use. A lot of bang for the buck.

Cons: The drive carriage is a bit flimsy, but as long as you're careful with it, that shouldn't be a problem. Setting it up with on-line accounts, such as Netflix and Amazon, is extremely tedious. Would be nice to be able to attach a USB keyboard.

Very happy with this BluRay player. It remembers where you stopped playing the dvd and you don't have to start over everytime you switch from player to tv. The quality of the picture is great . The time it takes to load the disc is 1-2 seconds versus the 8-10 seconds my previous player took.

Pros: quick loading time for dvds. Fantastic picture. Remembers where you stopped the dvd when you switch from dvd player to tv

Cons: none at this time

Goes great with my Samsung Smart TV.

Overall this is a great unit. It starts a DVD or Blu Ray in just a few seconds and plays them with great quality. The added apps and features give you more then you will use. The only reason I don't give it five stars is because all of the buttons on the unit itself are on the top. If you have an entertainment center or rack to store the unit you will have to use the remote for everything including ejecting the disc.

Pros: Quick start up, great price

Cons: Have to use the remote for all functions

I bought this player expressly for the web browser, specifically to stream lectures from The Great Courses. The browser wouldn't play the videos.

This is our first blue ray player. Yes, it was time to finally upgrade from our ten-year-old Sony CD player. Samsung BD-J6300 so far has been fantastic, great picture and love the online streaming option. The unit is reasonable sized to fit anywhere. Enjoyed our Crutchfield sales rep Rocky, he was very informative and professional helped with this unit and with an Onkyo TX-NR646. Thank you again.

Don from Santa Barbara, CA on 9/25/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I done a lot of comparison on the web and at some big box stores before deciding to purchase this player from Crutchfield. I chose to buy from Crutchfield based on their 60 day return policy; 2 to 4 times the amount of time of other possible vendors. Having the extra time with a device such as this is important because there can be issues that take some time to surface. However, I have had this player now for about 3 weeks and it has met or exceeded my expectations so far. I have had no issues with it as a player of many different formats; CD, DVD, BLuRay, Home Made DVD, USB content, etc. It has played everything that I have thrown at it. It also connected flawlessly to my wireless home network and I have had no issues streaming Netflix or a couple of other sources that I have tried even though I am just using a DSL ISP. As others have mentioned; it does seem that the upscaling does enhance content even on a none 4K HDTV. The only issue that I would mention is the control locations on top of the device is cumbersome and has to be operated more by feel than by sight; but for the most part you use the remote anyway.

Pros: Good Price Easy to hookup and interface with other equipment Seems to do all that it claims; and that is quite a lot

Cons: Controls on top of the device are not convenient to access and difficult to see. On Screen interface could be better

Mike from San Francisco, CA on 8/2/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent performance with outstanding sound qualities. I'm using this player to watch Blu Ray discs on a Samsung 1080P TV, so I cannot comment on how good its 4K upscaling capabilities are, however I can say that this is an excellent player for watching in 1080P. The picture quality is top notch and the sound it puts out is some of the best I have heard. The player runs extremely quiet during movies (no noises at all coming from the player once the movie has started). Samsung states if you turn on "BD Wise" on your Samsung TV, and on the Samsung Blu Ray player, settings will be automatically optimized for best picture quality...However, after I tried this feature, I found this not to be the case, so I would advise to turn "BD Wise" to "OFF". Then take the time to set the appropriate features manually in the menu settings and you will get the optimum picture quality and sound out of this Blu Ray player. Here are some tips to select under Picture settings, when viewing in "1080P": 1)select picture resolution to "1080P". 2) Turn "UHD" to "OFF". 3) Movie Frame (24Fs) should be set to "Auto" to turn this feature on. This will allow you to watch the movie the way it was intended to be watched (native format). 4) HDMI Color format should be selected to output "YCbCr 4:4:4" (because most movies are filmed in this format).

Pros: Excellent picture quality and sound. Informational LED display. Runs quiet. There are lots of sound options available to get the best dialogue and sound effects. Player has all the Dolby and DTS formats. Player does remember where you stopped watching a movie, even if you continue watching the next day. Player operates smoothly without any issues.

Cons: NOTE: When the main screen pops up just before you begin watching the main attraction (you know the one, where you have to select "play" to start the movie...) Instead of pressing down on the "play" button on your remote control, press on "ENTER" instead (the button in the middle of the up/down and left/right arrows), and the movie will play with no problems at all. This was the only hiccup, I encountered.

Very good Blu-ray player

I replaced a Sony Blu-ray player that was not functioning well. The BD-J6300 loads quickly which was a constant frustration with the Sony unit. Also was able to play many DVDs that the Sony unit would not. I have not investigated all of the options available on the menu, but pleased with my purchase.

Pros: Quick loading of Blu-ray discs. Convenient options screen

Cons: None at the present time.

DN from Marana, AZ on 6/20/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The tray operation sounds a little hollow, compared to the solid sound of the Sony I had. There have been a 6+ times I've had no response from the unit when pushing play on the remote. No response other than an on-screen message that says the operation is prohibited by the disc. Oddly, pushing play on the tv remote then starts the movie. Hot and cold. Frustrating.

Pros: Very compact.

Cons: Unreliable, unless I'm doing something wrong, but operation should be simple..

Upgraded from an Entry Level Samsung Player

George from Cleveland, OH on 6/7/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Initially purchased an entry level Samsung player that didn't even have an on/off indicator, which sounds like a small detail, but we also have a Samsung TV so pressing the remote ON/OFF button can affect both the TV and player, so a visual indicator is more than a convenience. This player has an actual display, which is nice, and the player also seems to remember, in most cases, where we left off with a disk, which is really helpful when you don't watch a disk all the way through in one setting.

Pros: Looks nice Display Remembers where you left off

Cons:

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

Blu-ray Disc: Blu-ray provides these key features and advantages

  • 1080p Video Resolution: Blu-ray disc delivers full 1080p video resolution to provide pristine picture quality.
  • 25GB/50GB Capacity: Blu-ray disc offers up to 5x the capacity of standard DVDs; 25GB for single layer disc and 50GB for dual layer disc.
  • 7.1ch Audio: Blu-ray disc provides as many as 7.1 channels of native, uncompressed surround sound for crystal-clear audio entertainment.
  • Enhanced Interactivity: Enjoy such capabilities as seamless menu navigation, bonus features, and network/internet connectivity.
  • DVD Compatible: Blu-ray disc players enable you to continue to view and enjoy your existing DVD library.

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. This Blu-ray player is 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: Visit the Samsung Download Center for the latest Firmware/Software updates.

USB Port (w/ ripping): The Samsung Blu-ray disc player features a front-panel USB (type-A) port that allows playback of a variety of audio files, still-image files, and video files stored on a USB mass storage class device (formatted in FAT16, FAT32, or NTFS). The player even allows you to rip CD-Audio to a connected USB msc device in MP3 format, or copy non-copyrighted music, video, and photo images from a CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, BD-R/RE disc, or even a connected network device or Cloud service onto a USB device. 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.

Media File Formats: The Samsung BD-J6300 Blu-ray disc player supports the following video, photo, and music files recorded onto BD-RE, BD-R, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD-RW, and DVD-R discs; or downloaded onto a USB thumbdrive.

Photo JPEG, PNG, BMP, MPO
Music MP3, WMA, AAC, AIFF, ALAC, FLAC, WAV, OGG

Video Section

HDMI 1.4: The Samsung Blu-ray player is equipped with an HDMI (v.1.4) output. HDMI simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio all in one cable. The HDMI output resolution can be set to 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i or 1080p when playing a DVD or Blu-ray Disc; also 1080/24p when playing a compatible BD.

  • 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-J6300 can pass the signal in its native form, without converting the video.
  • 4:4:4 Max Color Subsampling: The Blu-ray player's HDMI output will support up to 4:4:4 chroma subsampling for full color data rendering of high-definition video.
Note: The Blu-ray player provides no analog video outputs.

4K Video Up-conversion + Progressive Mode: Upscale your favorite non-4K videos and films and enjoy them in 4K Ultra-HD (3,840 x 2,160) with this Samsung Blu-ray Player and your Ultra-HD TV. 4K provides four times higher resolution than current 1080p high-definition content. The unit also offers 720p, 1080i, and 1080p upscaling if your TV does not support Ultra-HD, but is Full-HD. It also supports 480p and 480i output if your television is not HD-compatible. In addition, the Samsung Blu-ray disc player provides a Progressive mode to improve picture quality when viewing a DVD movie.

Note: To enjoy 4K, you must have a compatible 4K television connected to the Blu-ray player via HDMI.

Full HD 3D: The Samsung BD-J6300 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 Samsung BD-J6300 must be connected to a Deep Color compatible TV via HDMI for this feature to function. The BD-J6300 also supports x.v.Color; meaning it's ready for x.v.Color discs, such as AVCHD discs (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format).

Video Settings:  The Samsung Blu-ray disc offers a variety of video adjustments to fine tune the TV's picture image.

  • 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-J6300 to match the screen-type of your television. You can choose from 16:9 Original, 16:9 Full, 4:3 Letter Box, and 4:3 Pan-Scan.
  • Picture Adjustments: 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.

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-J6300 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 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.

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 250 msec.

Network/Internet Functions

Wired & Wireless Network Connection: 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 Dual Band 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.

  • Supported WiFi networks include IEEE 802.11A/B/G/N wireless LAN networks (2.4GHz or 5.0GHz).
  • Security setup types include WEP (open/shared), WPA-PSK (TKIP/AES), and WPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES).
Note: Samsung recommends a home network connection speed of at least 2.5 Mbps for standard definition or 10 Mbps for high definition

Samsung Apps: Samsung's BD-J6300 Blu-ray player incorporates Samsung Apps for access to a variety of online entertainment, social networking, sporting & news apps. Search Samsung Apps by "My Apps", "Recommended", "Most Popular", "What's New", or "Categories". Below is a list of some of the more popular apps available from Samsung Apps on this Blu-ray player.

Note: The Link Service Accounts function lets you link your player to your accounts with Internet services (like Twitter & Facebook) so that the player can log you into the service automatically when you start the app for that service. Online applications and content are subject to change without notice.

Web Browser You can access the internet using the player's Web Brower application. You can search web pages by entering a URL address or entering a keyword search. The player will archive your web browser history. You can also save "Favorite" web pages and create a "Home" page. The playback of Flash videos is also supported. The Web Browser is optimized to fill your connected TV's screen. The Web Browser provides two types of browsing; Pointer Browsing and Link Browsing.

  • Pointer Browsing: When you launch the browser for the first time, Pointer Browsing is active. If you are using a mouse to navigate in the Web Browser, leave Pointer Browsing active.
  • Link Browsing: If you are using your remote to navigate in the Web Browser, replace Pointer Browsing with Link Browsing. Link Browsing moves a highlight from one link to the next in the Web Browser and is much faster than Pointer Browsing if you are using your remote.
Note: The Web Browser is not compatible with Java applications. E-commerce, for purchasing products online is not supported. ActiveX is not supported.

Wireless Device Connectivity: The Samsung Blu-ray players allows wireless integration with your wireless network devices via WiFi Direct, AllShare Cast, and AllShare DLNA. 

  • 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 Cast: AllShare Cast is a proprietary "screen mirroring" function which lets you wirelessly send the display from your compatible AllShare Cast Samsung mobile device to the Blu-ray player and your connected TV. This allows you to view pictures and videos that are playing on your compatible Samsung smartphone or tablet on your TV screen. No wireless router or access point required.
  • AllShare DLNA: The Samsung Blu-ray disc player's AllShare function, along with its DLNA Certification allow you to watch videos (MPEG), photos (JPEG), and listen to music (MP3/WMA/AAC/FLAC) 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: For AllShare/DLNA, Windows PCs with XP and Vista installed require Samsung's PC Share Manager software, which can be downloaded for free from the Samsung Download Center. Not compatible with older Windows OS versions and Mac.

BD-Live: BD-Live technology allows you to download and stream bonus content such as additional scenes, shorts, trailers, movie-based games, and more from a broadband internet and home network connections (fees may apply). The BD-J6300 features an Ethernet port and built-in WiFi to connect to the internet via your home network, and features USB (type-A) port for additional storage.

Note: You must have a minimum 1GB USB memory device inserted in the unit's USB slot in order to download content from BD-Live.

Convenience Features

On-Screen & Front-Panel Display: The Samsung Blu-ray player features an on-screen menu through its HDMI output. It also features a front-panel display. Menu text can be changed to English, French, or Spanish.

Quick Start: Quick Start speeds up the load time on movies, so discs start faster after they're inserted into the Blu-ray player. The Samsung Blu-ray player has a start-up time of approximately 0.5 seconds in Quick Start mode (10.3 seconds in normal mode). In Quick Start mode, it takes approximately 15.1 seconds for a Blu-ray disc to begin playback (37.7 seconds in normal mode).

Note: The Start Up/Play Back Time tests were started with the Blu-ray player initially turned off & in standby mode. The Start Up Time test was stopped when the player's Home Menu screen appeared. The Play Back Time test was stopped when the Blu-ray disc began playback.

Parental Lock: The Parental Lock function works in conjunction with Blu-ray Disc/DVDs that have been assigned a rating which helps you control the types of Blu-ray Discs/DVDs that your family watches. There are up to 8 ratings levels on a disc. The rating levels are protected by a customer user 4-digit password. You can also restrict access to inappropriate web pages by allowing access only to the web sites you have registered.

Remote Support: The Samsung Remote Support service offers you one-on-one support with a Samsung Technician who can remotely diagnose the Blu-ray player, adjust its settings, perform a factory reset, and install recommended firmware updates; the player must be connected to your home network and the Internet.

Screen Saver + Auto Power Off: If you leave the player in the stop mode for more than 5 minutes without using it, a screen saver will appear on the TV. If the player is left in the screen saver more for more than 20 minutes, the power will automatically turn off.

Remote Control

Wireless Remote: The supplied remote is pre-programmed to operate this unit and a number of functions on Samsung TVs. The remote controls the TV's power on/off, input select, and volume up/down. The playback controls of the remote are glow-in-the-dark. This remote control also has Braille points on the Power, Play, Enter, and #5 buttons for the visually impaired.

Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC): Anynet+ is a convenient feature that offers linked operation with other Samsung components that have the Anynet+ feature, and lets you control those products with one Samsung remote control. To operate this function, you must connect this player's "Main" HDMI output to an Anynet+ Samsung TV using an HDMI cable.

Keyboard & Mouse Compatible: The Samsung Blu-ray player will also support a USB-enabled keyboard and mouse (both sold separately) through its front-panel USB port. This make web browsing much simpler.

Lightning fried my entire home system, needed to replace an old DVD player and a Roku, so decided to buy a BD Player with onboard Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. This was the best rated lower priced unit available. I love Crutchfield because you have real support and you care. I look forward to getting this unit hooked up. [ Adam  Sep 12, 2016 ]
Read the reviews and wanted a good Samsung DVD player to go with my Samsung TV. [ Michael  Sep 09, 2016 ]
Front display [ Zane G,  Sep 04, 2016 ]
This is a newer version of model I was researching. Customer reviews and settings advice convinced me. Crutchfield reputation for customer service was another factor. I will be buying additional items from Crutchfield. Bill, Harris, NY [ William  Sep 04, 2016 ]
In my experience Samsung BD/DVD players sync well with Samsung TV's. Unlike many units these days, this one has more heft and includes an information display. [ H  Sep 03, 2016 ]
My Sony Blu Ray player is acting up. I can sometimes get it to work with a hard reset. Anyway, I have had terrible luck with Sony products. I have had a Sony 46" TV, CD carousel, 2 Walkmans, and now Blu Ray player all go bad prematurely. I need something inexpensive to replace it so I can still watch Netflix and play discs until I replace my TV with and internet ready 4K. Hopefully this Samsung will do the job. [ Steve  Aug 29, 2016 ]
I have a 4k tv and since this has upscaling to 4k and wi-fi smart tv features I can use it both on my smart tv and my dumb tv (haha). It also received good ratings and for the price it works. In addition, I don't intend on purchasing too many 4k blu-ray disks given the good upscaling ability of samsung. [ Bruce  Aug 22, 2016 ]
It was one of the better rated Blu Ray players for the price. [ Scott  Aug 16, 2016 ]
I replaced a rather troublesome Sony unit. Glad I did Blu-ray Discs I could not watch, L can watch now. It ialmost instantaneously loads a Blu-ray Disc. I would strongly recommend this unit. [ Marilyn  Aug 10, 2016 ]
It is the only reasonably priced blu-ray player with a digital optical out port [ Russell  Aug 08, 2016 ]
Because the previous Samsung DVD player does not have any kind of indicator that it is on. Since it is black and sits in a cabinet, that is quite a problem. This new player has a screen that displays "player." [ CHRISTIAN  Aug 07, 2016 ]
Samsung brand. [ Christopher  Jul 27, 2016 ]

Has an optical output so I can send surround sound signal to my soundbar! [ D  Jun 16, 2016 ]
I'VE WANTED ONE OF THESE SINCE 1972. [ DN  Jun 06, 2016 ]
It was embarrassing not to have Blu Ray DVD in this day in age... Crutchfield's website changed all that and made the process of selecting one easy. Can't wait to see the difference and step into new technology! [ Rob  Jun 02, 2016 ]
price and features [ Thomas  Jun 01, 2016 ]
Two reasons: 1. It listed Amazon Video in the initial description and 2. If I have trouble, the tech guys will help me (they have before on other things). [ mark  May 21, 2016 ]
This unit will replace a much older (pre-BluRay) Samsung which has given many years of good trouble-free service. Won't switch now. [ RALPH  May 21, 2016 ]
Need a 3D Blu Ray player for my Samsung TV. [ Barry  May 20, 2016 ]

7 questions already asked

Yes, see page 48 of the User Manual, the player supports DTS-HD Master Audio up to PCM 7.1ch via the HDMI interface and PCM 2ch via the Optical Interface; [ Michael  May 30, 2017 ]
It probably syncs with the phone but check with salespeople where you purchased the phone or Crutchfield. They are always helpful. [ Lawrence E.  Mar 11, 2017 ]
Don't know for sure but it is a smart tv and you should be able to sync it with your phone. I suggest you speak with the salespeople at the locaiton you purchased your phone. [ Lawrence E.  Mar 11, 2017 ]
If it is, I do not recommend using your SmartPhone to operate a DVD player or TV. When I've done this I always go back to the remote that comes with the device because it is easier to use and works faster. [ Michael  Mar 11, 2017 ]
I was able to find that model on Dynex's website and they do list an HDMI input on it. You will be able to use this player with your TV! HTH! My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101 [ Paul  Mar 17, 2017 ]  Staff
Should be as long as you have hdmi input [ Paul  Mar 14, 2017 ]
Excellant [ Gerald  Jan 01, 2017 ]
I cannot answer this question as I have not played any 3d DVDs. [ Marilyn  Jan 01, 2017 ]
Outstanding picture and much better sound separation. [ Harold  Jan 01, 2017 ]
i have been using this player for about 4 months with a epson 3d projector and love the results. I would recommended it. [ RICK  Jan 01, 2017 ]
hi - I would highly recommend an HDMI splitter and a toslink (optical audio) splitter, if you are using the optical audio output from your Samsung, if not you only need the HDMI splitter. The splitter, depending on the model you buy, will allow you to plug in 2-4 HDMI devices. The splitter then has one HDMI output which you would connect to your TV. I have two XBoxes, a DVD player, and the Samsung plugged into my splitter. I am certain the folks at Crutchfield will be able to help you with a suitable splitter :-) Enjoy - Gary B. [ Gary  Dec 24, 2016 ]
You can purchase a switch which has additional ports. I solved the same thing and purchased A werestorm with 5 ports. This solved the problem. [ RICHARD  Dec 22, 2016 ]

Not sure about this but I bought it knowing that there are very few 4kmovies out there unless you stream them and, I understand, those are limited. I think by the time the tech people begin putting everything in 4k I'll be ready for a new Blu-ray. [ Lawrence E.  Oct 13, 2016 ]
Yes, it only upscales Blu-rays to 4K. You cannot play 4K UHD Blu-ray discs. That being said, it does a remarkable job in it's upscaling. I've had to reduce my Samsung 4K TV's sharpness because the upscaling made it too sharp. (i.e., increased graininess, pores in actor's faces, etc.) [ Christopher  Sep 13, 2016 ]
Yes, this player only supports 4K upscaling; very few players support 4K movies and they are $300+ [ Michael  Sep 12, 2016 ]
I can't answer your question because I haven't tried a 4k movie on the set. [ JOHN  Sep 12, 2016 ]
sorry don't know the answer [ THEODORA  Sep 12, 2016 ]
