Samsung BD-D5500 Blu-ray Player

 

At the CEDIA Expo last fall, the big push for everyone was 3D and online connectivity. We all knew that 3D was going to be everywhere, but also, everyone seemed to have an iPhone or Android Application, and was trying to offer as much online content to...

Overall the Samsung BD-D5500 is a nice Blu-ray player. It performed well on our bench tests and the colorspace data over HDMI was either excellent or very good, though the lack of 4:2:2 support was disappointing. The App system from Samsung was another...

Samsung BD-D5500

 

Blu-ray players nowadays do more than play a disc. They are as much about streaming media services as they are about disc playback. Even entry level players like the Samsung BD-D5500 comes networking options and a bevy of features not usually available...

For its asking price the Samsung BD-D5500 packs an awful lot of features and delivers a more than credible performance on 2D and 3D. Furthermore, the wide range of streaming services offered by Samsung’s SmartHub will give you hours of non stop...

Nice Value, Excellent Features

 

I cannot believe the value I got. This unit,for a used (refurbished) item, is pretty much indistinguishable from a new item. The minor external wear and un-fancy packaging are immaterial to the operation, which is exactly as good as you would expect...

Power itself off

 

I like Samsung products. This BD player reproduces nice quality movies and great sound whenever it is running

Power goes off at random, even while it's playing a movie. Upgrade firmware to the latest revision but luck. Now I am sending this defective unit back to Newegg. I'm pretty upset because now I have paid for shipping to send it back

Nice BR Player

 

We received the BR player within 3 business days of placing the order online with Vanns. It was easy to set up and use. The player has a touch screen which seems to work well enough. One pleasant surprise is the remote from our Samsung LED TV works for...
