This is surely a terrible deal, am I missing something? Can't standard Blu-Ray players like this be had for c£30? I have never seen people complaining of how their TV upscales standard 1080p Blu-Rays to 2160p.

If you are dreaming of a machine that makes cheap DVDs look like UHD then keep dreaming.

Not real 4K then. Probably better to let your 4K TV do the up-scaling. And then again, if your TV is HD only then would this make it look any better? Still trying to get my head around 4K disks vs Blu Ray 1080P vs streaming 4k etc etc

I would say if in doubt don't bother with 4K at all.
Bluray region free hack anyone?
Cannot play 4k blue ray , just normal blue ray.

These players are more or less the same as the DVD upscalers that became popular when HDTVs did, the only real benefit is that they do something your television doesn't, so if they offer streaming services or USB media playback that isn't supported by your TV, then they're an advantage. There would be very little difference using a 4K upscaler if your TV is only 720p or 1080p. You may find some models have a faster operating system, but they would be limited to outputting 1080p.

Some players do offer better upscaling than the televisions themselves, but you'd have to be a keen videophile to notice the difference (and those players are quite expensive).

As to 4K, like Blu-ray physical media is still the best, but to get the best from UHD BD discs you do need a decent display that outputs enough nits to get the most of the High Dynamic Range (as well as the wider colour gamut).

Less about being in doubt and more about wanting to learn some frivolous new stuff. Personally I love my 4K TV so won’t want to go back to a HD only TV.
Or you could save £6 and buy the 2017 What HiFi Award Winner, whathifi.com/pan…iew for £79 from Amazon, Tesco Direct, Richer Sounds et al. This does everything the Sammy does, but better and cost less. Need to add a cheap WiFi wongle though, so that’s probably your £6 saving gone.

3D?
I'm noob when it comes to movies so in order to play 3D blu-ray, does my TV need 3D capabilities and do I need to wear 3D goggles?

You tv does need to be 3D and yes you would wear the glasses that your tv requires (dependant on the tech used)
Had one of these, died just out of warrenty...
I haven’t bought a blu ray for a few years. And I used to go to the local Currys every Thursday to pick up the latests DVDs (Thursday was release day). I even remember the first release of Blade Runner on DVD and buying it on release day. I treat HotUKDeals like therapy. Hope no-one minds.
Bought this second hand for £40 for Christmas last year. Amazing BD player . The 3D is amazing. Well worth this asking price
I don't get the point of this? ... If you got a 4k TV you're going to want a UHD/Upscaing player.

Please for the love god give people accurate information, the Xbox one s like the X doesn't display colours correctly with 4k blu ray playback, this is a known issue in which MS has tried to correct in the past but it still persists and the next update is supposed to address this.

But until that time the best way to watch 4k blu rays at the moment is with a standalone 4k ultrahd player at a cheapish price for around £100-£120 like Samsung's UBD K8500 & M7500 or similar.

In your opinion, what is the better 4k player between the Samsung K8500 and the M7500 aside from the price?

Straight answer K8500

I have the M7500 but I got it for dirt cheap knowing that it is the newer but cutback version of the K8500, the M7500 is wired internet only no WiFi and 1 HDMI port, the K8500 has WiFi and 2 HDMI ports. Both of them look identical and have 4k HDR apps like Netflix, Amazon Video and YouTube but none of them have a display but I don't have a problem because the TV is the display. There are old stock of K8500's being sold with three or four 4k blu ray movies included as a bundle if you can find those it's winner winner chicken dinner, the other day I saw here a refurbished player with three 4k movies plus 1 year warranty £120.

They are cheap end models but they are perfect for the average person.
Cheers mate, much appreciated
I would go for fhe Samsung K8500 UHD player instead, my one from here included the Amazing Spider-Man 2 UHD disc in the box - £129.00

Thanks for your reply mate. Another question; I notice this particular 4k player doesn't have dolby vision. Is this something you should have in a 4k player going forward?
Yes, its a good price for this particular BR player, and I normally subscribe to the "If its a good price for this product, and will heat the voting even if I don't want the product" philospohy. However voting hot for this is like voting hot for a scammer, just coz he swindled you out of less money than a different scammer.

I'm afraid this is very cold for me. A better HD BR player can be had for less, and, as pointed out above a proper UHD BR player can be had for not much more. This doesn't offer anything that a decent normal BR player doesn't do. Any 4k TV set will upscale an HD picture to UHD.
Not worth the money as has been said a 4k UHD TV will upscale better thus making this redundant, stick to current Blu Ray player or upgrade to a 4K UHD player such as the UBD-K8500. I have this player paired to Samsung 4K TV and its looks very good with real 4k blu ray discs. The Revenant looks great and Independence Day is more grainy (apparently this is how they wanted it)

Also with the UBD-K8500 it has twin HDMI out, good for those such as me whos av receiver does not pass through 4k, therefore one hdmi cable to the TV and the other to the av receiver, therefore benefit from watching 4k and still benefit from lossless sound (DTS HD MA, Dolby true HD and LPCM)

a good website to see if 4K UHD disks are actually 4K or just tarted up blu ray is realorfake4k.com which explains which ones a re shot in 4K and which are just upscaled blu rays

Is dolby vision something you should look for then if wanting to purchase a 4k player that will upscale blu days / dvds but also have a good performance with 4k disks?
I have this player, it’s decent. Have to say tho it’s upscaling is a bit of a copout, if you’re looking for that 4K quality buy a 4K player or and Xbox One S/X. My player is in the kids room.
