Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Image, sound, ease of use etc. all good.
Bad points:
Makes a terrible noise when loading discs, no USB port, does not play all DivX. I returned the first one I purchased due to the noise (which continues throughout playing the film); got a second one and returned that too because of the noise.

Michael, Near Guildford Surrey Technophobe

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
BBC iPlayer picture and speed of response fantastic. Internet features good. Loads disks quickly. Great looking and very slim. Remote matches my TV and cinema sound and they all control each other.
Bad points:
iPlayer fast forward and rewind don't work, picture and response is so good I can forgive it, I am sure future update will fix. In some respects the Samsung remotes are too similar,which one to pick up in a hurry...

Stop Waiting with Ultra Fast Play.
At Samsung, we believe there’s always room for improvement. We applied this philosophy to reduce the time it takes for a movie to actually start after inserting a disc into a Blu-ray or DVD player. Our Blu-ray players were engineered with Ultra Fast Play to eliminate those annoying load times. It gets you into the entertainment right away. So sitting down to watch your favourite movie no longer entails the drama of slow device booting and clumsy tray openings.

Fewer distractions. Fuller screen.
To maximise your viewing experience, you need all the picture you can get. With the Screen Fit feature, the Samsung Blu-ray disc player’s automatically converts 21:9 aspect ratio movies to 16:9 aspect, eliminating those annoying black bands crowding the scenes. Watch movies the way they were meant to be seen—with just one touch of the screen fit button.

Connecting is easy with All Share.
Now you can enjoy movies, music and photos from your PC and other mobile devices, right on your Samsung TV screen. With Samsung’s Allshare (powered by DLNA) you can wirelessly (Samsung LAN adaptor required) sync your PC and Samsung mobile phone with your Blu-ray player, streaming content and even keeping tabs on who’s calling and texting you with real-time monitoring on your screen. Samsung’s All Share makes staying connected easy.

Wifi Ready Connectivity
Wireless access to the infinite possibilities of next generation entertainment is as easy as plugging the Wireless LAN Adaptor** into the back of the BD-C5500.
