Ive always found the picture and sound quality to be better on a disc compared to streaming. I have large projection screen 120" and full surround system and it is definitely a noticeable improvement. Not sure how much difference it will make on anything smaller than a 65" screen though.

Voted hot as it's the best price. Don't use your Xbox, gone a one s and a one X, the uhd is hit and miss, and the quality is just not the same. Get a decent one and the Blu-ray upscale to 4k is exceptional.

Blu-rays and UHD Blu-rays are compressed as well, Blu-rays are about 10% the size of the original digital files. It's just that streamed content is usually much more compressed. Physical media will be the best option for most people if they want the best quality (and we get lossless audio as well). Evem if we got to the point where streaming matched physical media, not everyone has access to high-speed broadband to make use of it.

Bavy

You have some good points, but 4k streaming all depends on person Internet bandwidth, you need minimum 15/20 megabits to get Netflix 4k and evan that is compressed. People buy 4k blu Ray players because its true 4k without compression, plus if your Internet is weak you only have the choice of 4k blu Ray discs

Yes, my TV has ARC and currently do do that. However, I cant plug my virgin to my AVR as it loses picture once it detects a 4k signal.

MrSprkle

Does your TV have ARC? if so you can use that as the connection to the AVR and it will send all audio through the AVR if not then you can use Optical that is fine but I think it only supports Dolby Digital so if you want ATMOS then you would need to use HDMI.

Laubi02

hi all, wondered if anyone can give any advice on my set up. I have: 4K TV Virgin Box (4K) Non 4k: AVR Xbox one Android box At present, I plug all my sources to the AVR and have one hdmi connecting AVR to TV. Because my AVR cant handle 4k, I plug the virgin box seperately. However, its a bit annoying to swap to TV sound and hdmi source everytime I wanna watch virgin. So, as Im slowly moving onto UHD, I was thinking of buying xbox S/X or a 4k bluray player. So, until I buy a 4K AVR, could I simply plug all my sources straight to the TV and have an optic cable from my TV to the AVR? Ive googled and some say yes but some say optic cable can only provide a level of quality sound.

Read some reviews on this, LG UBK90 4K Ultra HD HDR Dolby Vision Blu-Ray Player in Black, quite a bit dearer than the Samsung but probably worth it. I have the 55B7V(absolutely superb) and after LOTS of deliberation this is the 4K player that I am going for.

I bought one of these from Amazon Warehouse. Dreadful, loud drive noise, frequent pausing during disc playback. It went back. I imagine the models on Warehouse have been bounced from owner to owner. For the price it's worth a shot if you're willing to deal with having to send it back, but I really wouldn't place any bets on any of these pre-owned models being any good.

I have this player and it's great. Much better Blu Ray quality than my PS4 Pro, the upscaling in this box is lovely. Also, the Netflix app does HDR which the app on my Panasonic tx-50cx802b telly won't do. Ultra HD disc quality obviously fantastic, but worth noting no Dolby Vision support if that sort of thing bothers you (which at this point in the tech it most likely won't).

Chaps, does this play 3D titles? @TobRIP -does yours play 3D? John Lewis site says "No" but states that is supports the codec. The AVFORUMS review says yes. Richer Sounds doesn't mention this at all... Thanks

GadgetHunter

The chip used can make a difference to the upscaling and potentially to the chroma interpolation - but remember that all TVs have image processing chips too. Only if the player has a better image processor than the TV is it better to have the player do things like upscaling rather than the TV. Upscaling only applies when your source is a lower resolution than the TV. For example if you have a 4k TV and are watching a 4k UHD bluray then no scaling is required in the player or the TV but scaling is required if you watch a 1080 blu-ray or SD DVD. If watching a 4k blu-ray on a 4k TV (no scaling required) then all players should perform identically. Some players can be set to interpolate the chroma to 4:4:4 (the disks have 4:2:0) but all TVs will do this too. Again having the player do it only helps if the player is better at doing this than the TV. Oppo have processing chips that are very well regarded for their resolution upscaling. This will make absolutely no difference for a UHD 4k blu-ray playback but it can make a difference if you decide to have the Oppo player do the 4k upscaling of a 1080p blu-ray or SD DVD and the scaling in the Oppo is better than the scaling in your TV. Panasonic use their HCX processors in their UHD bluray players and in their TVs too. Other manufacturers have their equivalents - for example Sony use their X1 chips in their UHD player and higher end TVs. If you have a TV with a poor image processing chip for scaling, then having a UHD player with good quality scaling could improve the image quality for blu-ray and DVD - but not for UHD.

GadgetHunter

All UHD blu-rays are 4:2:0 and that is interpolated by the TV to 4:4:4. Having the blu-ray player doing the conversion from 4:2:0 to 4:4:4 is only an advantage if the blu-ray player processor is better than the TV at doing it. It is similar to the way some blu-ray players will upscale 1080p to 4k for display on a 4k TV. Everything that a 4k TV displays is upscaled to 4k by the TV so it is only better to have the player do it if it has superior scaling to the TV.

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?

benchaud

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 www.realorfake4k.com which explains which ones a re shot in 4K and which are just upscaled blu rays

cantbRssed1

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.

gjc5111

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?
