Samsung BD-F5500

 

big and bright when it works

flickering from the power saving features has truely put me off buying another samsung. Their support are not interested, and it is definetly to do with generation of tv's. Especially bad dipping light levels when backrounds are predominetly reddy...

Nice slim-line design; good picture quality and packed full of features. Love the smart features and integration with Netflix etc

The only niggle I have is that if you stream films from a NAS it doesn't save the place place you watched up to and it doesn't support fast forwarding through the film. A bit annoying but not a show stopper.

Love this TV, was so easy to set up and easy to operate. Great controller that allows you to easily move through smart tv features and connects to my virgin tv so this is now the only control I use. Looks great too.

Was slightly disappointed with the sound. I'm sure it's no worse than my old tv but because of the size and impact of the TV would have expected it to be better. Perfectly fine for general tv watching but I will be purchasing a sound bar for movies etc.

Samsung BD-F5500

 

Cheap, good image and sound quality, easy to use.

Very plastic and cheap feeling, worst aspect is very annoying loud whining/buzz/hum that is apparent most of the time when in use if player is shut away in cupboard it won't be a problem but if your player is out in the open it will annoy you.
