Samsung Blu-Ray Player BD H6500.jpeg

Blu-Ray players used to be just that, able to only play Blu-Ray discs. Blu-Ray players today come with a myriad of additional capabilities and Samsung’s BD-H6500 is no exception. It is fully loaded and is 4K Ultra HD ready so if you have a 4K TV or plan to get one in the future this is the ideal Blu-Ray media player. One of the great things about this player is that it will upconvert HD content to be much closer to UHD resolution. It is loaded with other features too. Although it costs a little bit more than most other Blu-Ray players, I got my hands on one and given all its features and capabilities it is a great buy.

Samsung is the de-facto leader in LED TVs and have produced some of the best TVs in the market. Their 6000 series over the last couple of years has been extremely popular, and for good reason.

Samsung has just launched their most exciting new TV’s for 2014 – their curved series of LED and Ultra HD LED TVs. The Samsung H8000 and HU9000 sets are fantastic displays with a lot of excellent extra features in addition to the curved profile.

Overview – Samsung 85" S9 4k Smart TV

Samsung2.jpgIs it art, or is it entertainment? With the Samsung 4K (or Ultra High Definition – UHD) S9 TV, it’s hard to tell. With an 85” screen and crystal clear resolution, it would certainly look stellar on any wall large enough to house it. Making the art versus entertainment distinction even harder is the fact that the Samsung UHD S9 is a floor-standing TV mounted on what looks like an artist’s easel. Art meets entertainment in an 85” high definition package – sounds amazing right? Well, at a staggering $39,999 it should! So, the question is: What makes the Samsung UHD S9 worth a cool forty grand? Let me tell you …

Samsung Bluetooth Speakers – Aesthetically Pleasing and Easy on the Ears

by Blogger on ‎11-27-2012 09:26 PM - last edited on ‎02-19-2013 03:02 PM by Regular Member

Samsung.jpgAbout two years ago I discovered the magic of Bluetooth. After an hour long drive to my parent’s house for a visit, I pulled my car into the driveway, disconnected the AUX cable I had attached to my iPhone, and miraculously, iTunes continued to play through my car speakers. I was in awe. It was pretty epic. I immediately looked to social media to share my miraculous discovery with others, only to very quickly be told, “um, Stace? That’s called Bluetooth. You know, that thing you paid extra for to have installed in your car?” Riiiight. But still, the whole Bluetooth thing is pretty cool. As is Wi-Fi. Especially when it comes to listening to music.
