Samsung BD-H5500 review

 

The BD-H5500 Blu-Ray player includes 3D playback and apps for BBC iPlayer, Netflix and YouTube. It's excellent value, but lacks Wi-Fi support.

The BD-H5500 is Samsung's entry-level Blu-Ray player in its 2014 line-up. In its favour, it's cheap and includes playback of 3D disks. It also comes with Smart TV apps and ethernet connectivity. However, there's no built-in Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi option, and...

Samsung 9500 UHD Blu Ray Player

 

Mine 1st 9500 died within 2 days. Richersound quickly organized collection/despatch after some basic troubleshooting over the phone. The 9500 itself is much quicker than the 8500 and has a much better remote. I primarily use the 9500 with my external...

Excellent machine

 

I have a 4k Samsung TV so though I'd get the Samsung 4k BR player. The TV is a little slow on startup, but not the BR player. Very responsive and the apps work great. Picture quality is superb and upscaling from the player is better than the TV. DVDs...
