Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Excellent choice in Bluray

I am very happy with this attractive little unit. It's ready for 4k content whenever that becomes available. It supports 3D, whenever I get around topurchasing a 3D tv.

The settings menu is easy to navigate, and the remote has all the features you will ever need. I did have a brief struggle matching the color space to my HDTV, but that was easy enough to configure in the settings. I do wish this model had more audio-out options, but a digital audio cable is easy to come by, so I'll have to go that route. Overall performance is excellent, you won't be sorry.

Overall Great Product--Excellent Value

Recently received the BD-H6500 as a gift (after I did a lot a research and left hints as to what devices I wanted for my (eventual) home theater set-up.

I'm acquiring items piece by piece). The device is well-packaged and protected in shipment, compact, with a better-than-most (detailed) but easy-to-understand instruction manual. The device itself is attractive and extremely functional, with setup exceptionally easy--including that of firmware updates, which does require a external USB thumb drive (not provided). Initially, I had trouble getting the device to wirelessly connect to my Netgear WNDR 4500 router--but that turned out to be an issue with the latest firmware from Netgear. It had nothing to do with the bluray player. If you possess that router, and you have difficulty adding new devices (any new device), do yourself a favor and revert to a previous version of the router firmware. As soon as I did that, I had no trouble connecting the device. Using the device is simple and straightforward. It simply works as one would imagine it would (and should). I do have 2 complaints as to the design--and in fact, these complaints were observed in other reviews I encountered elsewhere (during my own research). It turns out those statements were accurate. The 2 issues are: a) the inability to eject the tray via remote, and b) the on-board controls placed on the top right hand corner of the unit. If you place the bluray player in a cabinet (like I did), and if it sits on top of a stack of other components, make certain you've left enough space to reach in to operate the on-board controls (primarily the aforementioned lack of means of ejecting the disk because there is no button on the remote to do so). Because the on-board controls don't sit very "proud" of the unit's surface (meaning they don't stick out very far at all--they are almost imperceptible to feel, in fact--but they are quite sensitive). Because my unit is on top of a stack that completely fills the cabinet space, I have to actually grasp the unit and pull it far enough out to "see" the on-board controls so I hit the right one. If I don't do this, I will invariably hit the wrong control and usually (and inadvertently) turn the unit off instead of ejecting the tray. Samsung should have created an eject button on the remote. Perhaps a future firmware change might, somehow, allow two keys pressed at the same time on the remote to open the tray--failing that of having a dedicated button. Because of this issue, I gave the design only 4-stars. Otherwise, this unit would have gotten 5-stars for everything.

Samsung 3D Blu-Ray Player

I replaced a Samsung "Home Theater in a Box" with a component system, using this Samsung BR player. It is, by far, the best BR player I have had. itset up quickly and easily, connects to the Internet efficiently, and plays all CD, DVD and Blu-Ray media flawlessly.

The price was extremely good for the qualities built in to the product. I recommend this player to anyone looking for a quality piece of equipment at a decent price.
