Samsung BD-H5500 review

 

The BD-H5500 Blu-Ray player includes 3D playback and apps for BBC iPlayer, Netflix and YouTube. It's excellent value, but lacks Wi-Fi support.

The BD-H5500 is Samsung's entry-level Blu-Ray player in its 2014 line-up. In its favour, it's cheap and includes playback of 3D disks. It also comes with Smart TV apps and ethernet connectivity. However, there's no built-in Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi option, and...

Excellent machine

 

I have a 4k Samsung TV so though I'd get the Samsung 4k BR player. The TV is a little slow on startup, but not the BR player. Very responsive and the apps work great. Picture quality is superb and upscaling from the player is better than the TV. DVDs...
