This was about to go straight to the top of my list of AV purchases until I read that although it has two Freeview HD tuners, it can only record one programme at a time. That's such a missed opportunity.

I should have also asked, what's the difference between this and the BD-D8500 you reviewed a few months ago? I can only see the HDD storage size as being doubled here. That review seems to indicate that the menus are slower (sluggish) than the 8900 but I can't see how that's possible when they appear to be exactly the same apart from a different hard disk. Why even bother to review this one in that case?

Very good effort by Samsung in comparison to its rivals.

However, why not recordable BD? Simple, that will be on the Autumn model!! May be with a Freesat tuner instead of a second Freeview HD tuner? After all tvs are now coming with a standard Freeview/sat tuners.

Like I said drip feed to keep the Customers buying. However not good for the environment all round. Also not good for the commodity prices.

I posted in a comment about the BD-D8500 and thought to post here in case it gets mist. You can't use the Hub features, allshare features or USB attached devices while your recording. It asks you if you want to stop recording if you use those features. Other than that i love the 85500 and yes the 8900 is the same unit but different size hard drive.

Besides the doubling of memory to 1TB the other differences I've noticed are BD Profile 5.0 instead of 2.0 on the BD-D8500M, and 2 HDMI outs instead of one. So main difference remains the 1TB memory.

I'm a bit disappointed with this unit which I bought to replace a Panasonic unit. As mentioned by palms, when recording, the hub i.e. internet and any wifi attached disc content is not available. Also when recording, the guide menu is laboriously slow to respond. Unlike my old Panasonic, I can't watch from the beginning a program which I'm currently recording - this is a real limitation which I didn't expect.

It also tends to reset itself a few seconds after being switched on. This unit seems feature rich but poorly executed.
