  • Summary: I bought this player mainly because of the price and so I had a compatible remote for my Samsung TV. I expressly sought an inexpensive player because it seems stupid to put up with the hassles and poor performance of wireless. Instead, I wanted something that I could wire directly to my Ethernet switch because wireless costs more and is pretty hit and miss. Don't know about the blu-ray aspects, because I'm too cheap to upgrade my Netflix account.

  • Summary: the product is every thing I have come to expect from samsung...but it came with an rca cable not an hdmi cable. I just wonder if they got the description wrong or if they shipped the wrong cable, either way I just wish I would have got what I was promised.

  • Summary: When I bought mine the ad said it included an HDMI cable. That was an advertising mistake they seem to have corrected. It only comes with a standard four foot RCA style audio/video cable. I would suggest getting your HDMI cable from this WalMart site. The cheapest one (less than $5 when I bought mine) was an excellent cable for a fraction of what they charge at almost every retail store. This model has Smart Hub which is a very good internet streaming program.

  • Summary: Despite advertising that this player comes with an HDMI cable, IT DOES NOT! Also, I purchased this player because of its standalone wireless capabilities so that I can use the netflix and other online features. Despite the description saying it was wireless ready, it isnt. In order to comnect to the internet, you have to buy an external wireless adapter to plug into the unit so thatbit can conmect to your wireless network! VERY LAME!

  • Summary: This is a great refurbished blu ray player for the money. There are drawbacks to this deal. First, there was no HDMI cable included as advertised. Second the Blu ray player advertises apps that require a wifi connection. The player isn't equipped to receive wifi unless you buy the adapter that plugs into the back. THIS IS NOT COOL! Sounds like a bait and switch. Thankfully I just wanted the 3d blu ray player, period. It does the job.

  • Summary: I like the way it plays and the things you can do because it hooks to internet. Do not like the remote as it will not operate my Vizzo 3D tv and it did not come with the HDMI cable just the cheap RCA plug-ins. For the price it is a good buy and plays all discs 480,720,1080 + 3D. I use it daily and have no problems yet.

  • Summary: I bought the BD-D5500 Blu Ray player as part of a package promotion when buying a Samsung TV. This player is blu-ray, 3D, wi-fi ready, apps, and all this new great stuff. However, my maybe 5-6 year old basic (like, really basic model) DVD player had the ability to remember where I was on a DVD when I stopped and even powered off the unit.
