Samsung BD-C5500 Blu-ray Player Reviewed

 

This entry-level Blu-ray player offers core Blu-ray features like BD-Live and BonusView support, as well as DLNA streaming, WiFi-readiness, and the excellent Samsung Apps Web platform. For $179.99, it's a great package. ...

Samsung BD-C5500 Blu-ray player

 

Excellent Blu-ray image quality • YouTube, plus expandable Samsung Apps platform • DLNA-compliant

Sluggish operational speed • no built-in Wi-Fi

The BD-C5500's expandable Samsung Apps platform and DLNA compatibility make it stand out from other entry-level players, although it's one of the slower players we've tested.

very good product

 

Everything works fine on our wireless. Excellent prize. It came looking brand new out of the box.Once in a while it freezes up and I need to restart, but that is not a real problem to me.

Missing a cable

 

It would have gotten 5 eggs if it had the HDMI cable.

Works perfectly, very thin and light weight

This unit did not ship with the HDMI cable. If you don't have one on hand don't expect to get one in the box. It did have a video and audio cable set

Don't let 'Refurb' scare you away!

 

Very easy to setup, disc reading is very fast and TONS of extras. Pandora was a snap to get working, netflix streams flawlessly through the player (I have used the ethernet port, rather than wifi) and I'm using the HDMI output to my A/V reciever ; I...

None, although it would have been nice to have a 3' HDMI cable included

Streams videos from my computer. Streams netflix, vudu, youtube, and whatever else you can find in Samsung Apps. Not too difficult of a setup

It does not stream from my Bufallo Router with the harddrive attached (which works fine for my ps3). It does stream it just fine using Samsung PC Media Manager (download from samsung.com), with the app using the exact same files (the network hard drive...

Great Buy

 

Really good player for the price, easy plug and play unit. I had it out of the box and ready to play in about 10 minutes ; It looked brand new, so the only evidence that it was a refurbished unit was the labeling on the box

Really have not found any negatives. I was looking for a basic quality unit at a good price and I found it
