Pros: When it works, it results in errant dropped frames.
Cons: BDs don't boot correctly 30% of the time (black screen). Netflix fails to stream 50% of the time after selecting a movie (buffer stops at 80%). Constantly having to hard-reboot the BD5500C. Replaced twice. Avoid.
"A very basic Blu Ray player, the BD-C5500 with 3D"
28 November 2010
Pros: Very low priced player and packed with features Clear and crisp colors Remote set up to work with Samsung TV (great if you're getting the packaged deal) Full component width and a low profile Very good user manual and Quick Setup guide
Cons: v e r y s l o w Basic minimum connections Horrible audio buffer problem Four buttons on player itself: Play/Pause, Eject, Stop and Power (no fast forward or next) Poor remote design
Summary: On the whole this blu ray player would be a great product if we didnt have this issue: Every time the player is switched on, after about 10 minutes, the screen will start to crackle, then the sound will jump, screen will begin to flicker, then the audio and video will completely go off. after 2 minutes, the audio and videio resume good as new. I put up with this for a while and tried different cables.
Can't fault it as a player, but no audio delay option makes it useless for me

Summary: I got this player as a bundle deal with the Samsung 40" D6750 LED TV earlier this year, however I didn't buy any Blu-Ray discs for a while. This Christmas, I received a box set of the Harry Potter movies and I was really looking forward to sitting down and watching them. However, most of you will probably know that Samsung TVs do a lot of image processing, which delays the signal somewhat.
Does Not Stream Love Film or BBC iplayer as Samsung advertises it does
27 December 2010
Summary: I thought this would stream Love Film and BBC iplayer (as Samsungs web site and others stipulated it does). However as at 27th Dec 2010 no Samsung blu ray players do stream Love Film at present according to Love Film today. Love Film are unsure when this service will be available on Samsungs blu ray players although they do hope it will become available soon.
Summary: this 3d blu ray player is not the best. its tinny, looks cheap and the play back quality isnt brilliant. i purchased this from someone who got it in a 3d tv deal for free. as a freebie its ok and its a starting point for 3d. it is easy to set up and use. the blu ray only version is about 100 in the shops, this is 170-180 to go and buy it and around 130 from here. i would not recomend paying this kind of cash for this.
