Sony BDPS5500

Blu-Ray Player  9/10


Sony BDPS5500
Well known for producing high-quality electronic devices that are easy to use and are thoroughly tested before being released, Sony’s BDPS5500 Blu-Ray player is no exception. This model includes Wi-Fi connectivity, which allows access to a wide array of apps and online media. This Blu-Ray player also allows USB playback as well as 3D conversion on Blu-Rays and even DVDs. That’s a big upgrade over many previous models in this price range. We especially liked the ability to “mirror” the content on our Android devices onto the big screen. Available for $91, this is one of our favorite players and well worth the money for the functionality, value, and options available.
