Samsung BD-C5900

 

With the recent introduction to 3DTVs, Samsung has been quick to launch a new range of 3D capable Blu-ray players to take advantage of the new format. The Samsung BD-C5900 is the entry level model in the lineup. It is network ready with wireless LAN...

The Samsung BD-C5900 executes the 3D elements nicely and also did a fine job in tuning other areas of the Blu-ray player to make it more valuable. Combined with the $230 dollar price tag, this is actually a nice Internet device to get with a lower-end...

What do You Need in a Blu-Ray Player?

 

The Samung C5900 makes a great option for a certain type of person... someone who already owns a Samsung 3D television. If that is not you - this may be an ok Blu-Ray player for you, but there may be better options. However, if you own a Samsung 3D...

Great picture quality on Blu-Ray video ; Does a great upconverting DVDs to near HD quality ; Super fast loading time

Difficulty reading the end of a DVD

decent but requires additional proprietary equipment

 

unless you've already purchased a Samsung TV, do not intend to use the net applications wirelessly, or have some crazy affinity to Samsung, I would purchase a different brand of Blu-Ray since this is the second Samsung model I have purchased and both...

3d ; pretty good picture quality ; works in conjunction with a Samsung TV (either remote will operate both devices)

Although it boasts wi-fi, this player requires a wireless lan adapter to use the net applications which will run you another $70-$80

Sub-par BD Player

 

Not recommended.

When it works, it results in errant dropped frames

BDs don't boot correctly 30% of the time (black screen). Netflix fails to stream 50% of the time after selecting a movie (buffer stops at 80%). Constantly having to hard-reboot the BD5500C. Replaced twice. Avoid

Consumer review by:

A very basic Blu Ray player, the BD-C5500 with 3D

 

If you're simply going to plug this into your TV with little concerns for anything else, it's fine. If you actually expect any performance out of this unit, think again. Using the analog RGBs, composite video, stereo audio cables or the HDMI otuputs...

Very low priced player and packed with features ; Clear and crisp colors ; Remote set up to work with Samsung TV (great if you're getting the packaged deal) ; Full component width and a low profile ; Very good user manual and Quick Setup guide

v e r y s l o w ; Basic minimum connections ; Horrible audio buffer problem ; Four buttons on player itself: Play/Pause, Eject, Stop and Power (no fast forward or next) ; Poor remote design

Consumer review by:

Great BDVD player for price.

 

This player was part of my TV package, but even at full price it would be good deal. Loads DVDs very quickly and the 3D is great

Consumer review by:

great value

 

Great looking, very sleek, just bought a Samsung 3d tv, matches perfectly. Just watched my first blu-ray movie (Inception), blew me away. Picture quality and sound was amazing. Plug it in and off you go, can't say a bad word about this product, well...
