Your favorite movies are reborn in Blu-ray, when you discover what you’ve been missing. The BD-C5500 can also up-convert DVDs to near high definition quality so even your old movies get a renewed lease on life.

All you need is an internet connection (either Wi-Fi or Ethernet) and a Netflix membership package that includes streaming, and you’re ready to go. But it’s not just video, you can also stream music.

So far I have been pleased with this player. Setup was easy enough and picture/sound quality is very good (Tip: Make sure to pickup component or hdmi cables for best quality). I have used the Netflix, Pandora and YouTube streaming apps with no problems using a wired connection. Remote is ok although it does not work with all TVs so you may have to deal with using multiple remotes or getting a universal remote. Also the AllShare software that allows you to stream media from your pc is a bit buggy and for some reason won't allow me to open certain JPEG or MP3 files. Worth checking out if you are looking for an inexpensive blu-ray player.

No issues with BD or DVD, loading is slow thou.
Having trouble while watching instant movies on netflix. When i click 'play' screen turns blank and the player hangs. Then i can not even turn off the player using the remote. I have to manually power off to reset it and start again.

          I have had this Blu Ray player for awhile now and it has been moved from room to room as we get new blu ray players and TV's and I have had no problems with it. I have always kept up on the Firmware Upgrades and that keeps it running smooth. I have no complaints. It was worth the cost and I have got my money's worth out of it for sure!

              Have had this model for 3 yrs and after 1 1/2 yrs the remote stopped working and we had to buy one off the internet to replace it. Now when we play Blu-rays the machine skips and freezes. It will play basic DVDs smoothly, but not Blu-rays. Maybe we just bought a lemon? I'd love this product if it would play the dang Blu-rays!

                        I bought this Blur ray player because I wanted the apps. Plex was part of it and also Netflex. They work great. It interfaces very well with my Samsung Smart TV.

                              After owning it for less than 2 years, my BD-C5500 became completely and totally unable to stream any content from any source, could not connect to Smart Hub or Internet@TV, Netflix, nothing. I will now recycle it for a $15 fee.
