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

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
