3D Technology Checklist

This product is 3D-related. To help you get a great 3D experience, use our checklist below to ensure that you have everything you need. If you have any questions or want to learn more about 3D, we invite you to visit 3D 101--our center for everything 3D. To get started with 3D, please ensure that you have:

A Display

The first--and most important--item you'll need is a 3D-ready display--whether it be a 3D HDTV, 3D projector, or 3D computer monitor. These displays usually have a higher processing power than older models as they need to display one image for each eye to create a 3D effect.

A Source

While your display is ready for 3D playback, you still need a device to read 3D content (i.e., a movie or a show). This source can be a cable box with a subscription to a 3D channel, a 3D Blu-ray Disc player, or a PlayStation 3.


In order to watch 3D, you will need to get some 3D content. This 3D content will come from the source mentioned above in the form of a 3D program, movie, or game. Please ensure that your 3D movies are in the Blu-ray 3D format, as this new format will provide the best 3D experience.

3D Glasses

All 3D HDTVs on the market require Active Shutter glasses to create the 3D effect. You will need to buy one pair of glasses for each viewer. Also make sure that the Active Shutter glasses you buy are compatible with your display--for example, buy the glasses from the same brand as your 3D HDTV.

HDMI Cable

To connect your source (such as a 3D Blu-ray Disc player) to your display, you'll need a hgh-speed HDMI cable. Cables with this designation--with bandwidth speeds up to 10.2 Gbps (gigabits per second)--will be able to carry the 3D signal without any loss of quality.
If you want to get more information about 3D, shop our 3D products, watch videos, or interact with other customers, visit 3D 101, our customer center about everything 3D.

A BD player these days is not just for playing BDs and DVDs but also for playing music CDs and serving content from the internet.

Let me go through the nice aspects of this player first:
* Fast BD/CD load times - disks load almost instantly
* Nice picture quality. Upscaling to 1080p works very well too (at least when viewed on a 46" Samsung LED TV).
* Overall nice for watching BD/DVDs

Here are the areas of improvement:
* Remote control buttons could be made better. Either the buttons are not good or the BD player does not respond fast enough - forwarding, rewinding and using the direction buttons is not exactly fun.
* If your primary purpose is to view content online, skip Samsung entirely. Very few of the apps mentioned on their website are actually available. Go for Sony instead (I am returning this player and getting a Sony). The user interface is also poor. The new Apple TV is the best in terms of interface (and until third party apps are available on that, the Sony BD player should fill in the void).
* The player supports DLNA - but the Samsung implementation is full of bugs. Besides it lacks features such as shuffling songs, forwarding or rewinding video and that makes it practically useless.
* Not at all recommended for playing music on a hi fi system - you will notice the sound made when the disk rotates.

Overall, Samsung has done a poor job with its BD players. Its TVs are awesome but it has a long way to go in catching up on the BD player quality.

UPDATE Oct 26, 2010
I exchanged this played for Sony BD-P570 a couple of weeks ago. The Sony player also has issues with DLNA. Also, Netflix on Sony freezes all the time and several other features do not work despite a firmware upgrade.

The Samung C5900 makes a great option for a certain type of person... someone who already owns a Samsung 3D television. If that is not you - this may be an ok Blu-Ray player for you, but there may be better options. However, if you own a Samsung 3D television such as Samsung UN55C7000 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz 3D LED HDTV (Black) or Samsung UN55C8000 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz 3D LED HDTV the Samsung C5900 is an excellent choice. Why? most of the features that people complain that the C5900 is missing is already incorporated into your television. However, the Samsung C5900 is a very affordable option to bring 3D Blu-Rays to your television.

A few notes

- Remember - you will need high speed HDMI cables if you want to play 3D Blu-Rays - consider AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable (6.5 Feet/2.0 Meters)[Supports 3D + Audio Return Channel] since they are MUCH cheaper than any of the cables you will find at the box stores.

- Great picture quality on Blu-Ray video (as you would expect)

- Does a great upconverting DVDs to near HD quality

- Super fast loading time

- One HDMI and one optical audio output (not including the more conventional outputs... but you wouldn't use those on a Blu-Ray... now would you?)

- It has the ability to run Samsung Apps - but unlike the

The unit works fine most of the time, but it does have some issues that make me wish I had bought a different model.

First the good stuff. The included Samsung Apps are awesome. The firmware upgrade process is quick and easy. Streaming Netflix movies through this unit is better than streaming directly to my TV because it doesn't require a major rewire of my audio system as this unit is already connected to my AV receiver.

The unit is so light that pushing buttons actually moves it around. It would be great if it had a bit more substance so that it would just stay in place on the shelf. Occasionally, it pixelates, audio drops out, or just generally does strange things. As mentioned in other reviews, a power cycle will fix the problem. It only has one HDMI 1.4 output, so if you want to use 3D, you need to be sure you have HDMI 1.4 support through the entire path to your TV. My AV receiver is less than a year old, but doesn't support HMDI 1.4. That means that I have to either buy a new AV Receiver or connect the DVD directly to my TV. I chose the latter, but that means that I don't have surround sound for 3D content without some creative new wiring. I like the Panasonic approach to this better. Their 3D DVD players have two HDMI outputs (1-1.4 & 1-1.3), which allows you to connect one cable directly to the TV for the 3D picture and one to the AV Reciever for surround sound.

I purchased this player because marketing materials stated that 3D capable blu ray players will run Hulu plus, and because I wanted the AllShare functionality. After 4 days, multiple support interactions and hours on the mysterious Samsung Apps website, etc, I have determined that this player does not support Hulu Plus. Apparently, the internet does not know this (I checked ALL of the internet). Samsung support once told me it would work (they told me to try again later, the website was experiencing difficulties), then they told me that NO samsung BD players support it (that is wrong too, there is a hands on review of the feature on CNET on another model), then they told me it was available on the BD-C6900, and would later be available on other players, but could not tell me when.

Also, the AllShare application, which supposedly allows you to stream music, video and photos from your home computer, was nowhere to be found, even though it is advertised on the box itself. I didn't have the willpower to attempt an answer from Samsung's idiotic robot-like support, since I have already decided to return it. (Edit: I later found the the AllShare app after a support call. Still pretty unintuitive, but I was able to set up streaming video from my home PC)

The Netflix interface is not nearly as good as the one on Roku- you can only access items currently in your queue, and can't search other titles.

BluRay playback was gorgeous and problem free, but I only played one disc on it. The player would get 4 stars if all I cared about was BluRay playback. It would get 1 star for the advertised online applications, mostly because determining what the player is actually supposed to do is nearly impossible. Samsung support and documentation also gets 1 star. Their marketing department and website design team should all be fired. All in all, this player was a very frustrating experience.
