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 BD-J5500 3D Blu-ray Player Test

Samsung BD-J 5500 (Test)


Samsungs Top-Fernseher kommen im Curved-Design daher, echte Flatscreens gibt es bei den Koreanern nur in der unteren und mittleren Preisklasse. Bei den neuen Blu-ray-Playern verhält es sich hingegen genau umgekehrt. Das 250 Euro teure Flaggschiff ist...

Mit seiner geschwungenen Front und dem weißen Anstrich ist Samsungs Blu-ray-Player ein echter Hingucker – auch Bild und Ton lassen kaum Wünsche offen. Die eher bescheidene Ausstattung kostet allerdings viele Punkte.

Niet echt, maar het is een voorlopige indicatie omdat de huidige score voor de Samsung BD-J5500 gebaseerd is op te weinig testen voor een definitief oordeel. Check gebruikerservaringen of eventueel de ranglijst van Blu-ray en HD DVD-spelers voor...

Goede 3D-beelden ; Scherp en helder beeld ; Fatsoenlijke remote app ; Goed gecontroleerde motion ; Interessant ontwerp

Een beetje lawaaiig ; Rivalen hebben meer subtiliteit

Great little dvd player


I bought this to replace one which stopped working. This is a great player at a very good price. Ok so it doesn't have a light to show it's switched on but that's not a big deal. Quick and easy set up. Picture perfect on normal dvd, blu ray and 3D.

Fantastic purchase


The Blu-ray quality of this Samsung is brilliant, it's as good as the way more expensive model it replaced. Guided by the sales assistant who had all the patience and time in the world to assist me I'm delighted with it.
