Samsung BD-D8900M


Convergence is king with Samsung's 3D Blu-ray deck with built-in 1TB hard disk and Freeview HD

Amazing feature list ; Slick internet and DLNA functionality ; Blu-ray & HD channel picture quality

Some menus slow to respond ; Can't record two channels simultaneously ; No Blu-ray recording

All-in-all, the BD-D8900M is a wonderful advertisement for convergence, melding together various AV components into a slick, single-box unit. It’s positively bursting with cutting-edge features too, ranging from Wi-Fi media streaming to comprehensive...

Samsung BD-D8900M


Who cares about Blu-ray? Firmly ensconced in the PlayStation 3, standalone hi-def disc spinners regularly go for under £90 – small enough bean to set the alarm bells ringing in any gadget buyer's ears. The trick, thinks Samsung, is to up the price...

WiFi, Freeview HD functionality, user interface, huge HDD

Can’t burn to Blu-ray, HDD is noisy in operation, can’t stream and record TV simultaneously, only records one channel at a time, slow EPG

Whether this is a hi-def personal video recorder or a smart Blu-ray deck is irrelevant. Samsung’s BD-D8900M is an AV all-rounder that’s as advanced as it is good value. It lacks the option to record, or archive recordings, to a Blu-ray disc – but it's...

Samsung BD-D8900 review


With its 1TB hard drive and Smart TV functionality, this Freeview+ HD/Blu-ray combi promises to tick all the boxes

3D Blu-ray playback ; Huge hard drive ; Content-rich Smart Hub portal

Network functionality disabled during PVR recording ; Component output restricted to SD ; Network streaming dependant on compliant media server software

SAMSUNG BD-D8900M Review


The Samsung BD-D8900M does offer a respectable converged solution with Dual-Freeview HD tuners, multimedia functions, a large hard drive for recording and the ability to playback 3D content or browse a selection of internet services. However not all of...

Samsung BD-D8900 Blu-ray player and DVR combo


Review On the face of it, Samsung's BD-D8900 seems to be the ideal convergence product that will allow you to get rid of the stack of boxes that hide under your TV. Not only does this deck act as a 3D-compatible Blu-ray player, but it also has an...

Overall, the BD-D8900 is a mixed bag. On the one hand it has a beautifully designed user interface that makes its DVR and impressive internet features easy to use. It also offers good 3D Blu-ray play back and supports a wide range of media formats from...

Samsung BD-D8900


With gadgets like the Sony PS3 offering blu-ray functionality, it's easy to think that dedicated Blu-ray players have had their day. However, players like the Samsung BD-D8900 have a lot more to offer than just movie playback – including 3D technology...

The Samsung BD-D8900 is a wonderful gadget, and a real jack of all trades. With so many features, it's easy to think that it would struggle to excel in any one area, but overall the BD-D8900 succeeds in almost everything it turns a hand to. Samsung...
