That is the way they will get people to buy new devices.

Every time I try to get a movie working on the crap, either the audio is wrong, the video is wrong or the thing just freezes up completely.
Brett Jones
It was very easy to setup and worked perfectly right out of the box.

I have had the Samsung BD-C5500 Blu-ray player for about a week now and I absolutely love it. It was very easy to setup and worked perfectly right out of the box. It's smaller in size than the DVD player it is replacing but noticeably heavier. It starts up quickly and loads Blu-ray discs quickly too. The buttons on the front of the player are touch sensitive and don't give the user any tactile feedback so sometimes it's hard to tell if you have pushed them or not but at the same time they are cool and have a cutting-edge appeal. Some people have mentioned that they don't care for the remote but I find it to be very adequate and easy to use. I like the larger size of the buttons since I have big hands. The remote seems to work well at different angles and distances as well. When I first hooked up the player it did a firmware update and about a week later it notified me that there was a newer firmware and again did an update. It's comforting to see that Samsung is actively working to improve the device's firmware by releasing updates frequently if needed. I didn't know what issues/features the firmware updates were addressing because the UI on the player doesn't really tell you but Samsung does list what the firmware updates change/fix on their website. The device didn't have any problems connecting to my home network using a CAT-5 cable. It doesn't bother me a bit that this player doesn't support wi-fi out of the box. In my experience wi-fi is very susceptible to interference from other devices such as microwaves, cordless phones, and other wi-fi routers so using it to stream a high-definition movie could be problematic when you decide to pop some popcorn during the show or if someone calls you on your cordless phone. You'll always get better streaming performance from CAT-5.Read more ›

Bought unit, connected it to wireless network, and unit seemed to work. After less than an hour of use getting familiar with features of unit I received notice there was a Firmware update: loaded update. Unit would not reconnect to Internet! Spare the details, after more than six hours with level one and level two tech support I was finally turned over to Executive Customer Relations: phone calls were disconnected four times requiring me to go back through the question and answers with a level one tech each time!!! After another hour plus with the Executive Customer Relations they said they would Email an UPS Ground shipping authorization to return the unit for repair. Did not get the Email. Had to call back six times (yes six times!!!)over four days to get them to enter the correct Email address in their system: not a very long one and I even gave it to them in the Military Alphabet - Juliet Whiskey Sierra - each time.
Finally got the Email. Boxed up the unit and shipped it out same day UPS. Got it back twenty days later. It was just as inoperative as when I sent it in. Called Executive Customer Relations, again: they wanted me to go over troubleshooting issues with tech, again. Non-starter, time for an exchange of units I suggested. I had to finally tell the representative I would not argue with her further about the issue and to put her supervisor on the line. The supervisor agreed to an exchange and said a shipping label would be sent out. Two more days pass and no Email with shipping label, so another call to Executive Customer Service: now I am informed that it takes five business days for any decision to be made as to whether or not an exchange will be made.

This is my first stand alone Blu-Ray player purchase. I also have a Playstation 3. Setup on the Samsung was fast and easy. Blu-Ray discs load up fast. I didn't notice any difference in load speeds between this player and the Playstation 3. The quality of upconverting regular DVD's to 1080p was decent. To access the internet features, I'm using an ethernet cable connected to an Actiontec Powerline Adapter. So far, I have streamed HD Netflix movies and checked out a few videos on Youtube. Both worked flawlessly. As another reviewer mentioned a bug regarding sound, I haven't had that issue at all.

As of now, there aren't many internet apps available. That's not a big issue to me since the only ones I will use are Netlfix and Youtube. One issue I did have was using the AccuWeather App. Every time I went into the setup area to input my current location, the app would freeze (New York City weather is the default location). I tried this at least 5 plus times and the freezing issue didn't go away. I had to power down the player and turn it back on every time the app would freeze.

Overall, I'm really happy with the Samsung BD-C5500. I would recommend this to anyone looking to purchase a Blu-Ray player. Besides the issue with the one application, everything has worked fine.

I am very pleased with this unit. It worked just fine right out of the box. As someone who has worked in IT all my life, I expected at least some problems connecting to the streaming features. I was pleasantly surprised when the Netflix and Pandora interfaces worked without any setup problems whatsoever. And, by the way, the quality of the video and audio are stunning. Can't find a reason not to give this unit five stars.
