    Bought this Blu-Ray player expecting better results. I updated the firmware, tested all connections, I know what I am doing, but this unit had too many issues to overlook. First, the Netflix wi-fi connection was very unstable. Some times it would work ok, other times, it just wouldn't. I have a laptop sitting next to this unit and it works great. But the main issue I have with this unit is the audio and video would get out of sync during playback of Blu-Ray disks. This is supposed to be a Blu-Ray player but I never watched an entire Blu-Ray disk without having to stop the playback and restart it to get through the movie. It would work great for about 30 minutes, then, the audio no longer matched the video. I really expected this player to work better. I returned this unit and bought the Sony BDP-S580 with built-in wi-fi and it works perfect! I may have just picked up a bad unit, but I have seen other reviews with the similar issues I had.

    It was a rather cheap blu-ray player. The exterior quality is good, but functionality and sotware features were disappointing; I expected more from Samsung. It has played all the rental DVD and Blu-ray discs we have tried, so this is a positive, though the following negatives may be cause to reconsider purchasing this player -- it constantly losses its network connection for no apparent reason which can only be corrected with a full power cycle (aka pulling the power plug). It has been through several firmware updates and is at its latest but this problem remains. We use the Netflix and Pandora apps which work reasonably well (but not as well as on other devices), and only when the player decides to connect to the network. The remote control is of low quality and does not function all that well, so unless you plan to retire it for a universal remote this may also be a negative. Note: We have a Tivo and Xbox360 which don't have such network issues even when connected using the same patch cable, so the problem is clearly Samsung's.

    I only ended up with this bluray player becuase it was bundled with the tv .I think its rather larger by todays standards looks dated. the door to this thing make a loud "clack" when it opens and closes for the tray to slide out,the buttons on the front are basically lights behing the faceplate so it looks sleek there. as i said with the tv too. the apps are a bit sluggish. choosing a movie on netflix take a while. I have a 4Mb/s internet connection and I feel the disc images should make their way to the screen alot faster. Cars 2 came out and the 3d movie skips at parts, (there is a known issue with cars 2 the panasonics skip too) but I didnt hold it against samsung. I play the regular bluray and occasionally the screen wont advance past the walt disney screen for several minutes. the only way to get past and get to the title screen to watch the movie is unplug and repllug the bluray player. i find this unacceptable. maybe its just cars 2 but if 2 of the 3 discs (3d and br) formats act up on my first month with this i have a bad taste in my mouth,

    Every feature appears to work. The user interface is slow and tedious. Pandora works, but the older version of Pandora is better. Youtube does work, but had to change the privacy setting in Youtube account. Need to press the red-A button and login each time player is powered up. This is very annoying. If I checked "Save the password" just go ahead and use it and login in auto. Plays mp3 file in usb drive. However, it does not play by folder, which Sony player does. Can not navigate the file folders using left and right key, as was the case in older Samsung mode like BD-P1590. The two column listing format is bad. We now need to do left-and-right, and up-and-down as well. Photo viewing is slow. Ability to play selected music along with slide show is a nice feature. Again, would be nice if selection can be made by folders. The remote control does not work with my Panasonic Plasma TV. None of the 4 control code worked. The home menu is bad. Shifting items instead of moving the cursor highlight is very confusing to me. Still does not know what video format it will play.

    OK, I knew that the player didn't remember where it was in a movie when you turn it off but I didn't think it would bother me so much. But it takes so long to read the disc and then you have to skip through all the menus to start the movie and then you have to skip through the movie to find the spot where you left off. It is annoying that my 10 year old player can remember the disc position and this thing can't. It can read movies, music and pictures from my network server. The internet apps take a long time to load and the interface is clunky. I have a Samsung TV too and I tried the Anynet+ feature but I don't see how you use this if you ever play a CD through the player because you have to keep the TV on! If you turn off the TV, the Blu Ray player turns off. Also, when you use this and turn off the Blu Ray, the Samsung TV goes to the next input which is the cable in. I can't use the cable in so it just goes to snow! So I disabled this and plugged the Blu Ray into HDMI 1 and the TiVo into HDMI 2. With Anynet+ off, when I turn off the Blu Ray, the TV goes to HDMI 2 and I can watch tv without flipping through the other 5 inputs! The best thing about the player is the price.

    As a DVD and Blu-Ray it works fine, slow loading but OK. But do not purchase if you want Wi-Fi or SMART tech as it will not consistently play NETFLIX. Wireless does not work at all, period, Had to run a solid wire ethernet, to Router. Helps just a little but still can not use Netflix consistently. Sometimes it will play Netflix, but most of time it will do nothing but "re-buffer" the stream or lock up. When it does, I use my Samsung Plasma TV with "Smart" and it works GREAT with Netflix, Why do I use the DVD player for Netflix? Night time watching to keep the sound down. Because Samsung forget to put analog audio jacks on the TV for earphones and Netflix forgot to send the audio to the TV digital audio jacks. They only send audio to the internal SPEAKERS so they can not be muted nor can earphones be used EXCEPT on the DVD player. Using the TV on Netflix, disturbs the entire house when the movies try to blasting you out of your seat at 1AM in the morning, Answer? Forget Samsung, all of them. Laptop on lap, watch Netflilx and use earphones on the laptop if you dont mind a small screen for 'after houses watching. Samsung and Netflix are NOT there yet. They both point at each other or to my ISP but my signal is 50mps + and works great on the Samsung TV.

    Bad MKV DIVX and media playing

    Customer review by gabox001

    I bought this player because it claims to be able to play mkv and divx from USB, but does it wrong, the movies are stuttering and making small pauses, also stopped from time to time to download (This did not happen does not happen with my previous Samsung BD player -P1600). This makes it very unpleasant to see a movie. It is a shame, because it has an image quality and stunning color. In the end he returned to the store for a refund. Pro: Excellent image quality, stunning colors, Apps Samsung are very good. Cons: Can not play media files correctly, (MKV, Divx HD) Conclusion: Recommended for those who are only going to play BD, those interested to play media files via USB should think about another option.

    Great picture quality, affordable, and reliable. Best thing about it is that you can connect external hard drives to it and play movies, pictures, and music from there. It fits very nicely and has a nice sleek design, does not take a lot of space. Quality is great, but have not tried Blu-Ray discs or 3D discs. I have not noticed a huge difference in 1080 upconvert quality with regular DVDs but then again I don't own Blu-Ray discs. Con-The sound on some discs or videos is very low and TV must be set to 100 (max) to be able to listen to dialog clearly. Tried playing with the audio settings on the player but no luck. Some movies play perfectly with audio. Also thinking of getting a surround sound with Samsung.

    The BD-5500 performs well and integrates seamlessly with Samsung's UN55D8000 television with the following exception: The BD-D5500 current firmware version 1018.1 (October 18, 2011 release) does not properly play Cars 2 Blu-Ray 3D without freezing. The Cars 2 movie was released on November 1, 2011, two weeks after the firmware. Earlier Blu-Ray 3D movies work properly, as do 2D discs. I have not tried other November-released Blu-Ray 3D movies. I understand Samsung will be releasing newer firmware in the near future which will resolve this problem and am periodically checking their website in hopes of finding the update, since there will be additional later-released 3D movie purchases we wish to enjoy.
