Samsung BD-J5500 review


Well-rounded Blu-ray player, but it won't quite top your shortlist

Sharp, clean picture ; Motion well controlled ; Good with 3D ; Decent remote ; Interesting design

Rivals have more picture subtlety ; A little noisy

Not ahead of the curve performance-wise, but a decent disc spinner

The Samsung BD-J5500 is an entry-level Blu-ray player with a distinctive curved design, available in a choice of black or white. It lacks the wi-fi and screen mirroring features of the BD-J5900, but shares other key features, such as 3D Blu-ray...

Samsung BDJ5500 3D Smart Blu-ray


Great player for the price, being used with a projector and picture quality is fantastic, only downside is no on/off/standby light on the front of the player, not a major issue, you'll either have a picture or you won't.

Excellent product. Picture quality impressed.


The whole family impressed by the improved picture quality. The unit also coped with the latest video format which my old unit did not.

Best Value


I only needed a blu ray player to watch a blu ray disc bought without looking at the label. It prompted me to upgrade my home cinema system. one bonus is that the BBCi player facility is a lot faster than my Vigin Tivo box!. I have always liked Samsung...

Great Value For money. The only thing I would have liked is a light to know it's on.

Consumer review by: customer (

No dvd playback + needs wired Internet connection


Don't bother buying it. 1) You need a wired Internet connection - in other words you have to find/use wires from your router etc to the dvd player as well as plug into wall etc. 2) Very frustrating set up and it did not play any dvd's we had. Sent it back
