Expert Review

11 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The Samsung BD-D5500 is more than decent. For a low price you’d be getting a perfectly capable Blu-ray player. The lack of built-in Wi-Fi however is a real kicker. Shop around before committing.
  • Pros: At a cost of around £100 the Samsung BD-D5500 is an attractively-priced Blu-ray player that offers all the basic features one would need. Those being top quality playback and Smart TV access. Blu-ray films look great. For an entry-level system, colours are bright and clear, and dark levels are commendable, and worth the entry free. It’ll even play back those 3D releases. The BD-D5500 also offers smart TV access to make use of online services and sites such as BBC iPla...
  • Cons: Unfortunately there’s no Wi-fi. To access those Smart TV services you’ll need to use the ethernet port - a real bother if you aren’t close to a socket. The BD-D5500 does support Wi-Fi, but you’ll need to purchase a dongle sold separately.

  • Conclusion: The Samsung BD-D5500 is a capable, full-featured Blu-ray player, but its slow startup time and only-so-so DVD upconversion skills hold it back.

  • Cons: Slow to start up and load discs. Mediocre DVD-upconversion performance. No integrated Wi-Fi.

Samsung BD-D5500 3D Blu-ray Player

Sound & Vision Magazine
21 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Samsung's BD-D5500 proves that you don't need to spend a lot on a 3D Blu-ray player to get great results. Its video and audio performance are top-notch, and it provides 3D capability and access to lots of online and locally networked media content. However, it's lack of DTS-HD decoding is a significant drawback, which you can overcome by spending $40 more for the BD-D6500, $20 more for the Sony BDP-S480, or $10

Samsung BD-D5500: 3D-Blu-ray-Player im Test

15 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Der Samsung BD-D5500 ist ein empfehlenswerter Blu-Ray Player mit einem vernünftigen Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Die Bildqualität, die Verarbeitung und die Zusatzfunktionen stimmen. Ein Wermutstropfen ist allerdings die Fernbedienung im “Retro Look”. Wem das Design der Fernbedienung wichtig ist, kann über die Anschaffung einer schickeren Universalfernbedienung, wie zum Beispiel der von uns getesteten Logitech Harmony 700 , nachdenken.
