So I am in the process of buying the ue55es8000 and need a 3d blu ray system to go with it! I am looking to stick with Samsung and came across these two. I've searched the forums before making this thread but nothing comes up for either product. Basically the only difference I can see is the 5550 has 4 tall boy speaks where the 5530 has two. I've only found reviews for one of these products, the 5530 and one thing I've seen in particular is it takes 50seconds to loan a blu ray, which was a negative. I was wondering whether you knowledgable guys know whether this issue would plague the 5550? If there's any other systems you can recommend for the 300-400 price point that would be sweet too!x Cheers.
