Introduction

At the CEDIA Expo last fall, the big push for everyone was 3D and online connectivity. We all knew that 3D was going to be everywhere, but also, everyone seemed to have an iPhone or Android Application, and was trying to offer as much online content to the user as possible. Samsung was certainly one of those companies jumping on board, as their new TV and Blu-ray lines offered both support for 3D playback, as well as an updated version of their Samsung Apps to enable online content and feature upgrades. I recently took at look at their new BD-D5500 Blu-ray player to see how it stacked up against the competition in the low-price range.
