Samsung BD-HM59C 3D Blu-ray Player Review

Samsung Blu-ray BD-HM59C Performance


Buy From Amazon
Buy From Amazon

If you are upgrading from a previous Blu-ray player, the first thing you will notice about the BD-HM59C is its speed. This is one of the fastest Blu-ray players I have reviewed. Blu-ray disc loading is quick; it does not test your patience. What bothered me occasionally was that the Blu-ray player would not respond to the remote control.




Samsung Blu-ray BD-HM59C Connectivity

Audio and Video

Samsung BD-HM59C Connections
Samsung BD-HM59C Connections

There are only a few connections available on the Samsung BD-HM59C. For video output there is a single HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) connector. HDMI carries an audio signal. There is also a coaxial connector. These digital audio connections transmit stereo or up to 7.1 surround sound.

Samsung BD-HM59C Wi-Fi
Samsung BD-HM59C Wi-Fi

Wireless

It comes with Wi-Fi or 802.11 b/g/n. I could confirm that it worked with a 802.11n wireless router, but I have read some reviews that state that the BD-HM59C does not actually support the faster 802.11ac 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz standard.

LAN 100

When it comes to a consistent connection this one works best. The local area network or LAN port allows you to connect the Blu-ray player directly to you cable or DSL modem.

Samsung BD-HM59C USB
Samsung BD-HM59C USB

USB

There is one USB port on the front. Unlike most Sony Blu-ray players the Samsung Blu-ray BD-M59C includes internal memory. So, you can start using streaming services, such as Netflix and Hulu Plus, straight out of the box.

Samsung Blu-ray BD-HM59C Screen Mirroring

Samsung’s “Screen Mirroring” is their implementation of the Miracast standard. Currently, Android and Windows devices support Miracast. Miracast was established largely as a competitor to Apple’s Airplay. Airplay works flawlessly. This is not the case with Miracast. In practice, this standard suffers from having too many cooks in the kitchen. Every company that adopts the standard gives it a unique name and not every Android or Windows device supports Miracast. Conceptually, this feature is great, however it may or may not work well for you.

Samsung Blu-ray BD-HM59C Streaming channels

Samsung BD-HM59C Popular Streaming Services
Samsung BD-HM59C Popular Streaming Services

First of all, on the box it is stated that the BD-HM59C offers “100+” streaming services. Here is the problem with that statement, I could not find more than 13 streaming services. I looked, but could not find any option to download more services. I made sure to update the software for the Blu-ray player and still only 13 were available. Now, for most people this will not be an issue because the most popular video streaming services are included: Netflix, Vudu, Youtube and Hulu Plus.

After looking around a bit more, I discovered the “100+” streaming services largely reside within the Opera TV Store. Most of the content is not worth listing and some streaming services are outdated. Sony’s Crackle and Amazon’s Instant Video are not available on this player.

Youtube On The Samsung Blu-ray BD-HM59C

Youtube Pair
Youtube Pair

Watching Youtube on a television is usually a pain, but that is not the case with the BD-HM59C. The feature I am highlighting is not actually a feature of the BD-HM59C itself, but a feature Youtube has made available through many streaming devices. When you launch the Youtube app on the BD-HM59C it gives you a notification to visit Youtube on your tablet or phone and input a code. The code is displayed on your television screen.

Youtube Pair

Once you input the code you are able to navigate Youtube on your touch device and watch the video on your television. This is a superior navigation experience when compared to using the included remote.







Samsung Blu-ray BD-HM59C streaming channels:

  • Netflix
  • Hulu Plus
  • Youtube
  • Pandora
  • Vudu
  • Cinema Now
  • Amazon Instant Video

Samsung Blu-ray BD-HM59C Value

Blu-ray is Still The Best

Samsung_BD-HM59C_value

Currently priced at $88.95, the Samsung Blu-ray BD-HM59C is a quick Blu-ray player with a few quality streaming services. It offers a high quality viewing experience at home.

I own Pacific Rim, the 2013 science fiction mech movie, on Blu-ray and from the Vudu streaming service. Watching this visually arresting movie on Blu-ray is, without question, the best way to watch movies at home. And the BD-HM59C delivers that experience.

Samsung Blu-ray BD-HM59C Design

Samsung_BD-HM59C_design

The design of the BD-HM59C is fairly typical with the exception of the curved front right corner. The on-unit controls are on the top within a circle. The display on the front is large and clear.


Blu-ray offers the most Special Features

Blu-ray still, without comparison, offers the most content when it comes to special features, bonus content and extras. iTunes and other streaming services offer extra content with their movies, but rarely do they offer a comparable amount. Blu-ray continues to be the ideal medium for movie fans who want to gain insight into the development and making of a movie.

Samsung Blu-ray BD-HM59C 3D Playback

The BD-HM59C will play any 3D disc you put into it. Keep in mind that you will also need a 3D television.

The major television manufactures, including Samsung, continue to build 3D televisions even though most consumers and tech reviewers consider 3D a gimmick. 3D on HD does little to improve your home viewing experience. As long as it is perceived by manufacturers to add margins to televisions, those manufacturers will continue to add 3D to their televisions. However, smaller niche brands, like Vizio, are leaving 3D behind.

Samsung Blu-ray BD-HM59C User Interface

Samsung BD-HM59C Main Interface
Samsung BD-HM59C Main Interface

Samsung’s user interface is uniform and easy to navigate. All apps are laid out using squares and rectangles. Installed apps use the same UI layout but are limited to two rows on the bottom of the screen while the top half of the screen is filled with relevant information and imagery. Visually, it is better than the Netflix layout in iOS, but not necessarily more efficient when browsing.



Samsung Blu-ray BD-HM59C Remote

Samsung BD-HM59C Remote AK59-00149A
Samsung BD-HM59C Remote AK59-00149A

The Samsung AK59-00149A remote has a medium length and a narrow width. The back is curved which complements your hand. The button layout takes some getting used to. Most of the buttons are rectangular and are difficult to distinguish by touch.






Wrap Up

The Samsung BD-HM59C is a great Blu-ray player with mediocre streaming services. If you want a superior viewing experience and only need the most popular streaming services this is a good choice for you.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Buyer’s Guide

Captain-America-The-Winter-Soldier-feature

At the writing of this article, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the number one movie of 2014. It recently passed The LEGO Movie to become number one. I loved this movie. Amongst the movies in Marvel’s Phase II, I rank Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the top 2. It is a toss up between this movie and The Avengers for the best one. When I read a review stating that Captain America: The Winter Soldier was the best Avengers movie I really doubted that it would deliver. After seeing it in the theater I was amazed at how good it was. It is so much better than Captain America: The First Avenger.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on September 9, 2014. This buyer’s guide will include Blu-ray, DVD and digital options.

Wrap Up

Everyone I’ve talked to about this movie loved it. When I mention that it is on par with The Avengers, the same people scoff. Their response seems to come from some odd reverence for The Avengers. And when I say it was better than all of the Iron Man movies then some people lose it. What do you think? Where would you rank Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

For all of the religious upheaval, Noah was a smashing success at the box office. With solid performances from Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and the rest of the cast, Noah brought a fresh perspective on a familiar story. The familiarity of the story surely contributed to the success of the film. People who are familiar with the biblical story and those who watched the movie in the theater will be interested in bringing this movie home.

Noah will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 29, 2014. This buyer’s guide will include Blu-ray, DVD and digital options.

For such a successful film, the extras and special features are limited on all offerings for Noah.

It is convenient and, you get the same number of special features that come on the Blu-ray.

Wrap Up

For the serious fan, the Optimus Grimlock set is without question, the way to go. But if the $80 price doesn’t work for you there are plenty of affordable options. Even though it was unusually long, this Transformers was definitely the best of the four. I liked the Dinobots and some of the new Autobots that were introduced. Hasbro is expecting Transformers: Age of Extinction to be the biggest movie of the summer. So far, it is on track to hit that goal.
