Disc Works OK, but Not Great

J. Johnson, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: We bought this to use the Netflix interface, which works great. The disc player is pretty finicky. It is usually stable once you get into the actual movie, but it has a hard time with menus and don't even think about trying to skip previews. It will just freeze.

Works good

Aaron Madden, Amazon
25 May 2013
  • Summary: It works good and was easy to install. Not my best DVD player that I've owned, but had no problems with it. Picture quality was great, just couldn't zoom out the black bars on top and bottom like my other brand DVD player does.

Love Hate BD-C5500C

Mark Whitis, Amazon
6 March 2013
  • Summary: Ok, this is one of my most used products because I spend a lot of time watching, or half watching, video due to a disability. I have had it for over a year. It is great to be able to stream netflix, hulu, youtube (almost), vudu, cinema now, naked trailers, etc. on the tv.

Not so great

Justin D., Newegg
27 January 2013
  • Summary: At the end of the day, I suppose it does what it says it will do, it just doesn't do any of it very well at all.
  • Pros: The touch controls are cool, and it has a nice small profile.
  • Cons: Where do I begin? For one thing, it is slow at everything. Menus, playing, even responding to pressing pause is laggy. Video quality is simply sub par. There a very noticeable difference between this and switching over to my PS3. The PS3 plays smoothly and clearly. This player by comparison has m...

Disappointed. No longer plays blu rays. Already serviced once

John Quillen, Amazon
8 January 2013
  • Summary: Technically, mine is a BDC5500C that I bought in Jan 2011. Within 3 months, the video went. About 2 weeks out for service. 4 months ago, it stopped playing Blu Rays. It's a shame. The Internet apps like Netflix, Pandora and VuDu are great. It plays DVDs.

Decent Player

Anthony M., Newegg
19 December 2011
  • Summary: To all the negative reviews regarding 'wireless ready', if you wanted a wireless connection on this then buy the next model up which is identical only adding wireless and only $30-$40 more. Read the specs!
  • Pros: Great Player, hooked into home network and streams everything I want from my network share, movies, music, etc. Easy setup, bought primarily to have a network connection to TV, netflix works great! The few blu-ray discs I own play normally. Not using the included remote, programmed my Logitech Ha...
  • Cons: Only con I can think of is: it was an impulse buy from Wally World and not Newegg :(

Get a roku

Z, Amazon
17 December 2011
  • Summary: I bought this because I have Samsung TV and thought it would be best to stay with the same company. Wrong. I was marketed by the Netflix and MLB apps. These apps were continually interrupted by factory loaded apps like VUDU that needed updating.

SCAMSUNG

Strebel, Amazon
30 November 2011
  • Summary: Do not buy!! Utter garbage. Stopped playing after little use. At first it wouldn't play a regular DVD and then it wouldn't play Blu-rays either. It is not even a year old. I have never had this happen to any video player I had but I had never bought a Scamsung before and will never again.
