This is instore only, there were 3 of these left in the Canterbury store! It comes with 300, Up, Toy Story, Bruno, Mamma Mia, Sweeney Todd. A good price I thought...
The Samsung BD-C5300 is another one of those models from an electronics brand that are so similar in terms of specification to other models in their range, that you wonder what the difference actually is. The model in this case is the Samsung BD-C5500 which offers a slightly sleeker look over the C5300 but there is no other discernable difference in terms of features and specification. Choosing between the two models therefore is completely a personal choice.

For an entry level player, the Samsung BD-C5300 has a very respectable specification with a host of online enabled features such as the Samsung [email protected] service which gives you access to Facebook, Twitter, movie streaming from LoveFilm, Muzu and very soon, the almost vital BBC iPlayer. The BDC5300 also has the DNLA powered Samsung Allshare service which allows you to view photos, listen to music and watch movies from your PC or Samsung mobile phone. You will need purchase the optional wireless dongle to be able to use these services, which simply plugs into the USB sockets on the rear. The rest of the connection options are fairly standard with HDMI, component and optical.

The Samsung BD-C5300 is also a very flexible 1080p Blu-ray player, with support for the high definition audio formats DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD, as well as being able to play MP3, DivX, Divx HD, JPEG, JPEG HD, MKV, and AVCHD files.

Got this one last month, great at upscaling standard DVDS as well.
#2
6 Blurays say at an average of £7 each = £42
so £58 for a blu ray player.
hot!

Edited By: Vampire Hunter J on Nov 01, 2010 14:45: said dvds when i meant blurays
#3
I think this comes with 6 free blu rays not dvds, hence very hot hot hot
#4

Does this play mkv with dts of usb?

Bye the way whoever buys burn the bruno disc don't look directly at still have nightmares about that film
#7
Can this be connected by CAT cabling instead? or does it have to be Wireless dongle? Thinking of getting this for my mom & dad, but would like to be able to conenct via cable since the wireless dongle is a rip-off at £80+.

BigT: Yes, I have a 7Gb MKV on an external hard drive and it's fine.
Alien18: Yes, this can be connected via wired connection, although it uses something specific for communication and I've never managed to get it working.

Don't place any value on the blu rays apart from how good the film is, a quick search on Ebay shows how many of these have been bought with the intention of selling the blu rays. Still a good buy though, although this is the standard price rather than a special offer as such.
#9
been this price for absolutely months now from several different retailers. Not really a deal IMHO
#10
£107 @ Amazon for those who cant get to HMV store/out of stock. (nectar points too ;) -)
#11
Tempting, but these would surely drop in price in the New Year sales no?

A very good bargain though!
#12

No choice of bluray though.
Getting stuff you probably don't want.
#14
Hot deal Great price but word of advice forget the free dvds that will just sit on the shelve go for the sony bdp370 its the same price a far superior player i have both of these players.The sony player sems better for updates and support to and also has lovefilm which is a winner.

So chop them in and exchange for what you would want

I tried to trade in Mamma Mia and Sweeny Todd at Blockbusters and got offered £2 each trade.
#17
We bought this at the weekend - very happy for the price. We took Bruno, Mamma Mia and Toy Story to trade in at Game and they only offered us £5, so we walked away. Will have to try CEX. Oh yeah, they wouldn't take Toy Story cos there was no barcode on the packaging (stupid bundles)
Dont forget to update your firmware for best performance...Samsung Site Link
:D

Chop them in ? Feller above showed just how much chance of swopping you'd have

I bought this 3 months ago for £99 at Play - It's an ok Blu-ray player, but my control is guff as the enter button won't work, I will send it back at some point but for now i'm using my TV control. At the end of the day 300 is an epic film, Toy Story and UP both look amazing on Blu-Ray so there are 3 decent blu-rays in there... Just because they are now worth very little because of these bundles does not mean they are rubbish...

Everybody talks about playing MKV files on this Samsung BDC 5300 Blu Ray player, my question is:- all my movie files are stored in the VOB format on a separate 2TB hard drive in a drop in caddy. If I join all the separate VOB files into one large file for each movie should I then convert the VOB file to an MKV file. Question is, this can take hours to do for each film conversion. Is it possible to keep the VOB file and re-name it into an MPEG2 file for playing on the Samsung BDC 5300 Blu Ray player via a USB drop in caddy?
#21
I'd still rather just buy a PS3 :)

Nice price though.
#22
This has been on offer in HMV for ages, this is a great deal though. I've got mine running off the Ethernet Port from the back. You can run a hard disk or memory stick via the USB, and play MKV files easily.
#23
You'd get about £30 in total for those 6 blu rays on e*ay.
#24
BTW, does it support subtitles from MKV etc?

Yes it does, SRT files I believe..
#26
ordered mine today from play at £98 with the 6 films
#27
OP - are you sure there's no difference between this and the 5500 in terms of specs?
#28
My brother wants the c5500 for Xmas but I can't see much difference with that and the c5300 apart from about £30-£40. Please can anyone enlighten me (also will the free blu rays be in the box separate or advertised on the box because obviously I will be keeping those for my troubles ha!)

I can't comment about the difference between the C5300 and C5500, but it may be worth taking a look on avforums. As for the blurays, we broughts ours at HMV and got the girl to check whether the films where inside the box, she found there was a box inside a box with all the films packaged together in individual plastic cases.

This is £97.99 delivered with AJ Electronics, using the discount code AJEBDC53 (Also, 2 % Quidco). The Blu-Ray player also comes with the 6 free movies.

The code was meant to have expired on 17th Oct, but still appears to work....

#32
been in 2 stores today, chester and ellesmere port... none. Can't find play deal either.
#33
received mine today from AJ Electronics, thanks to theyiddo.

Perfect.
#34
Glad to be of some help. the AJ discount code was actually printed in the Evening Standard a week or 2 ago, so I figured it must still be working....and lo and behold it was!
#35
Does this player actually have iplayer yet?

Samsung and retailers have been claiming it has it since day one but it was always actually "coming soon" I've not heard any update on this since.
#36
Tried all HMVs in my area and they are all out of stock but found the deal for £119 at Tesco.
