Delivers good UHD, but design features could be improved.

I’ve only owned this player for a week, and have watched 2 UHD movies on my 75 inch sony 4K TV. It’s my first UHD player, and the picture is what I would expect…clearer than normal Blu-Ray. That’s especially noticeable in small details like lettering and distant people in a scene. But I’d expect that from any UHD play. So I can only pick nits with the operation of the player. Being the 2017 version I expected minor annoyances to be ironed out, but:

… my Samsung tv (UN55KS8500) and the picture quality is amazing. Also does a great job upscaling normal blu-rays

Bought this Blu-ray player to go along with my Samsung tv (UN55KS8500) and the picture quality is amazing. Also does a great job upscaling normal blu-rays.

Great 4K Blue Ray Player

This is a great 4k player I hooked it up to my new 65″ Samsung curved 4K TV and it sinked up right away and my smart remote from the TV programed itself automatically. Loads very fast and picture quality is great

Good 4K player for the price

Works well playing 4K discs and also up-converting blu ray movies. Good features for the money. Can control the player with my Sony TV remote. Kinda miss a front display, but you can easily bring up disc info pressing pause on the remote. Remote is VERY basic. When setting the TV control buttons on the remote to control a non Samsung TV, I found the instructions in the manual very confusing. The manual shows the numbers 1-0 in the illustration, but what you can’t see is the button text under the number. Additionally the example does not specify the button name for the numbers. I was bringing up the numbers using the 123 button and that just did not work. To help anyone else that is having a problem, this is the correct way to do it.

There are pros and cons…

Great player. Shakes hands nicely with my Samsung UHD TV. Decent interface, and a beautiful picture. Replaced a Sony that needed to be reset several times a week.

Very happy. Be sure to get a HDMI 2.0 cord.

It was a breeze to set up and I have not had any trouble loading UHD and regular BLU-RAY dvds. I love built in apps so I can watch NETFLIX in 4K. Everything else I watch on this looks better too.
