Pros

Dual HDMI out, 3-D, super quick boot-up and BD loading, tons of internet apps, excellent PQ & AQ, built-in wireless & 1GB internal memory storage, slick looks

Cons

can only dim front panel display, not turn it off. no rear USB

Review

I purchased this BD player more for the fact that it has two HDMI out jacks (currently very rare) than the 3D capability, which I'm not currently using. I have a Denon 4806 receiver that I paid an arm and a leg for a few years back that unfortunately only passes 1080i through it's HDMI system. I wanted to be able to get 1080p out to my TV while still enjoying the lossless HD sound through HDMI, and the dual outputs here solved that perfectly (HDMI splitters didn't work and I don't want to use analog out connections).

Besides the obvious draw of it's 3D playback capability, the C7900 is pretty full featured player. It has built-in wireless and ethernet adapters for internet connectivity, which includes Netflix, Blockbuster, YouTube, Facebook, Pandora and a ton of others apps that are currently available. You can actually add and remove them as you see fit. Pretty impressive. Netflix streaming was excellent over wireless even with HD content and the Pandora worked perfectly too. I did not try the other apps yet. It can also update firmware from the web, with auto-notification if desired, and it prompted me to update when I did the initial setup which went without a hitch. There's internal 1GB of storage for BD-Live stuff (actually only about 600MB free out-of-the box though) or you can use the USB jack in the front for it (no rear jack). The USB also allows for reading media from thumbdrives, etc. Picture and audio quality are excellent, with the usual adjustments and presets available to you. Boot-up is almost instantaneous and BD disc loading speed (with and without Java) is super-fast, seemingly quicker than my Playstation 3.

Build quality is good. It's a small form factor, button-less front face, with a pretty cool see-through top over the disc drive area. It's illuminated, along with a 3D BD logo, with dynamic white LED's (which can be turned off if desired) and the touch-sensor transport buttons (stop, play/still, eject and power) run along the front top edge of the player. The remote is non-illuminated and is pretty comfortable to hold with nicely laid-out flat buttons. Connectivity jacks are 2 HDMI out (1 audio only), 1 component and 1 composite video, 1 L/R RCA audio out, 1 optical audio out, 1 ethernet and 1 front USB jack (behind a little swing out cover). The player gets warm underneath, but it didn't feel out of the ordinary to me.

The nitpicks I have with this player are minor. You can only dim the front panel display, not turn it off completely. A coaxial audio out would've been nice as an option to optical. Other than that if you're willing to pay a little premium for the 3D, this player is well worth consideration.

Pros

The features on this player are great...

Cons

The DTS Audio from standard DVD's drops out at every DVD chapter when connected to a Pioneer VSX-33 receiver.

Review

The DTS Audio from standard DVD's drops out at every DVD chapter when connected to a Pioneer VSX-33 receiver. The issue does not occur with other audio formats - Samsung states that the Blu-ray player may not be compatable with my Pioneer VSX-33 receiver. (I find that odd). I connected an older Panisonic to the Pioneer receiver and had no playback issues with standard DVD's encoded with DTS.

Pros

Nice design, easy to use, and has lots of features

Cons

Poor video quality and Poor performance

Review

I purchased the C7900 and hooked it up to my Samsung LCD (Model# LN40D630M3FXZA) and noticed the quality was very poor. The image was pixilated on every Blu-ray disc and jumpy on some others. After resetting the tv and player, I experimented for hours with all the settings. Nothing worked. Through process of elimination, including HDMI wires, TV, discs and so on, it was definitely the player. After calling Samsung I confirmed it was a FAULTY PLAYER! My recommendation, avoid Samsung players all together and avoid the headaches. After all, isn't the whole point to get a great picture?
