Thanks been looking to get a Blu-Ray player to go with my new LG OLED ..


Be aware that this doesn't have dolby vision or atmos if that's important to you. Good price but lacking in some features.

Edit: seems it does have Atmos, just missing Dolby Vision.

Bare bones player. But does the job and can’t be beaten for the price. I’ve had mine for 9 months and it’s never failed to play any sort of disc. Unlike the £200 Sony it replaced which kept freezing - especially on DVDs.

The only niggle I have is the remote doesn’t have one-click Audio or Subtitle buttons. You have to go through a tedious menu system.

I have an old Samsung player and it takes about 90 seconds to load a BRD are the modern players much faster??

Agreed, but its more than double the cost of this unit, so not cheap.

All streamed content is lower bit rate than disc source

Yes currently, but as broadband speeds increase and technology innovates, the bit-rate will improve, although it’s hardly noticeable to the human eye, the difference in price between a UHD disk and digital content is so steep. Plus Apple upgrade the quality of some purchases for free from HD to 4K, and imagine they will do the same for 8K when it becomes mainstream, thus the UHD disc will become redundant. In my opinion Apple TV is a no brainer in comparison.

It will work with Dolby Atmos as its supports Dolby Atmos bitstreaming , Dolby Atmos is carried within a 7.1 True HD container on disc, which a compatible Dolby Atmos decoder within an AV receiver, TV or soundbar can decode to Atmos.
It will as work with DTS-X.

So it's just the Dolby Vision which is the main difference. Not sure if £100 extra for DV is worth it over standard HDR10.

List of Dolby Vision (DV) discs : nextgenhometheater.com/dol…es/

All DV capable discs have a HDR10 base layer, DV is better but HDR10 is very good.

if you want DV look at the Panasonic UB820 (automatic DV switching). Sony X700 also supports DV (manual switching) I had one and returned for the Panasonic as it kept freezing with UHD discs (known issue).

Xbox One X/S don't support disc based Dolby Vision only streaming.

Main difference is DV and streaming apps.
More expensive players like the Panasonic UB820 also have better video processing or audio features like SACD audio on the Sony X700. They also have streaming capability but while pictures are excellent for streaming they are very clunky compared to most 4K TV's own apps, a Firestick 4K or an Nvidia Shield TV.

Hopefully the next gen consoles have 4k blu ray drives, definitely a mistake not having one in the Ps4 Pro !

I agree - and have a vast Apple store movie collection. But.. I recently got worried by the fact that Apple can drop movies from their library - even if you purchase. So unless you download and store every 4K movie you purchase, you do risk not being able to watch some titles in the future. It might be that physical copies are the only way to guarantee ownership in the long run?

Really? Oh wow, I didn’t know this. I better check the small print. I would be so disappointed if Apple dropped any of my purchases. In this case, physical disc is probably the safest bet to guarantee ownership

If you die though you can't leave you collection to someone else. Apple makes this very clear. The main reason why I won't invest in it. If anything happens to me my huge Blu Ray collection will still be able to be enjoyed for years to come.

It’s why I never buy Digital content lol
Bottom line, the best solution is a combination of both - Apple TV has some absolute bargains you don't want to be able to miss, while UHD discs are both the reliable long-term ownership and absolute best image quality option. As a general rule, I'll go for discs if it was shot on film (grain works so much better with disc's bandwidth) or if it's one of my favourites; stream will do fine for anything I don't need to spend twice as much about it.
Does this come with smart features and apps such as Netflix, Amazon prime etc.?

no, it's just a basic player with no smart functionality. Great value though for this price!
Want. Must resist to stop buying 4k discs

Simple to set up & use a very nice no frills unit for the money

Yes but your not factoring in by the time 8k is possible for streaming ( which the way things are going I’d say 5 years ) , you will need to buy an 8k tv and possibly a new aptv box

True, I’m halfway there with an 8K QLED TV at home, although by then I’ll probably want to upgrade to MicroLED or whatever technology is available at the time

Well for my TV it's is (Philips ambilight)

4k hdr looked to dark/dim with odd colour on the Xbox one now it looks how I expected 4k to look with the lg

Also when I ever played dvds and 1080i I had to put TV in game mode to remove stuttering with the Xbox also with a 1080p blu ray player now that's fixed with the LG 4k player.
