After all the reading and playing with my BD-C5500, I have decided to keep it rather than upgrade to the 3D BD-D5500. Now the problem is that my current firmware is very old 1010 version and Samsung recommend to upgrade to the newest 1022.3 firmware.
My problem is that I do not use the internet to stream video, I don't play Blue Ray disc, the only thing I use this player is to play all the videos that I have downloaded onto my 500GB external Hard disc which is connected to the front USB slot. Right now, it plays AVI, WMV and MP4 files with the fast forward and rewind working just fine. It doesn't play the .VOB files however I do have those on the original DVD so it is not a really big problem for me.
I would love to have the latest updated firmware however are worried because some of the guys here had problems after upgrading to the 1022.3 firmware but most of the problems are related to video streaming.
Since once the new firmware is installed, it can not be reversed. I am trying to find out if there are other problem that you guys saw after installing the new firmware?
I know I have been asking a lot of questions here and I would like to thank all the people that have responded but I just want to get as much information as possible before making deciding and you guys are a wealth of knowledge here. Thanks for any help.
