Samsung BD-C5500 review: Samsung BD-C5500

 

Samsung BD-C5500

Excellent Blu-ray image quality; Netflix, Vudu, YouTube, and Pandora media streaming, plus the expandable Samsung Apps platform; DLNA-compliant.

Sluggish operational speed; no built-in Wi-Fi; compatible Wi-Fi dongle is too expensive; last year's Samsung Blu-ray players had questionable reliability.

The BD-C5500's expandable Samsung Apps platform and DLNA compatibility make it stand out from other entry-level players, although it's one of the slower players we've tested.

This entry-level Blu-ray player offers core Blu-ray features like BD-Live and BonusView support, as well as DLNA streaming, WiFi-readiness, and the excellent Samsung Apps Web platform. For $179.99, it's a great package. ...

"WORST blu-ray player I've ever owned."

 

Not many. Plays blu-rays well; upconverts SD DVDs to pretty much HD quality. Low cost - bought on sale for less than $150. Out-of-the-box not bad.

Hangs on Internet TV app FOREVER, will NOT ever finish loading. Hangs on VUDU app; never finishes loading. This is after I updated to the latest firmware. Prior to firmware upgrade, it worked okay, but also updated my NetGear wireless WNCE2001 f/w.
