Almost great.

Submitted by DBarnes415 - 2/8/2018

Ive had this since April 2017 and it does as advertised. Works great with my LG 55UH8500 TX-NR656 w/Klipsch speakers. However when playing 4K discs it has a very noticeable humming/buzzing sound that goes away after about 15 minutes and sometimes it seems incapable of playing a complete movie I had to complete Steven Kings It in my XBox One S. Regular Blu Rays and 3D discs play flawlessly though. And as Im writing this review Dunkirk 4K disc is now playing flawlessly 25 minutes into the movie. Overall though Im satisfied with it.

Submitted by John Winchester - 2/7/2018

This is the 3rd unit I have had. This one is 1 month old. the other 2 worked great in blu-ray but froze and had colored lines after playing 4k movie 3/4 done. This was after I had the unit over 2 months. I only played 2-4 4k movies when they went down.. So far I have only watched 1 4k movie on the last one. So far OK

Noisy and missing Dolbly Vision

Submitted by JimHSLC - 1/12/2018

I bought this player for one reason to take full advantage of my LG OLED C7 TVs amazing display quality. I purchased this item in October and saved it for Christmas. That purchase was made with the expectation of Dolby Vision being available upon opening at Christmas. After all LG had released a firmware update in August with Dobly Vision enabled. Sadly LG has since pulled that update and I am left with a player that often rumbles loudly while playing no Dolby Vision and no ability to return a product purchased three months prior. That with with very little comment from LG will definitely influence future purchases.

Submitted by Nikopol - 1/1/2018

Works as advertised for the most part. Some 4K disks start up very loud then slowly spin down as you progress through chapters. Needs the Dolby Vision update to get a higher rating. Doesnt make much sense to have Vision as part of he 2017 LG TV Line and not already have an update for this unit. Should also be able to connect to home network but doesnt.

No Dolby Vision Output

Submitted by Michael_23 - 11/22/2017

No Dolby Vision outputted to my LG SuperUHD and OLED TVs. This is very disappointing and have to rely on lower bitstream Apple 4K TV and native Netflix App to get Dolby Vision. Physical discs especially those labeled with Dolby Vision still should be the best source of video output.

Great diversity of formats

Submitted by Stormsword - 10/23/2017

I love having Dolby Vision capabilities at this price point. Its a good player but it has a few quirks I dont care for. One is that it sometimes glitches for a second like a power outage that only lasts a moment. Another is that you cant plug the HDMI into your receiver without the darned thing switching itself on and the receiver switching to the players input. Highly annoying. Its because you cant turn CEC off if you want ARC to work for audio.

Just OK

Submitted by Digitalbear11 - 10/7/2017

Picture quality is great For full price i paid this UHD player is underwhelming. The software is what id expect on a basic Blu-ray player. Example you cant disable CEC so this takes over every time you power on another CEC device. When ever you stop a Blu-ray it goes to a blank white screen instead of the main home level navigation. Some people have not yet received their Dolby vision update.

Ive owned the UP970 for several months and if you really want to see what 4K is all about youll own one too. Coupled with my LG OLED 55 TV its like looking through a window onto the real world.

Very good performance

Submitted by jetlancer - 9/23/2017

I have had this player for a month now and I am happy with the purchase. I have run every type of video through it so far with the exception of DIVX encoded. My opinion so far is: 1 UHD 4K disk The Revenant - excellent performance. I did not have any of the motor noise others have mentioned. 2 Blu Ray Battle of the Bulge - very good upconvergence. Some slight noticeable thickening of outer lines of images but that may also be due to the TV processing. 3 DVD various - good upconvergence very viewable. 4 VHS tapes various - probably not relevant to the large majority but as expected upconvergence for these was very variable and often pretty poor. Sound on some disks was somewhat muddy but Im inclined to blame the TV and its speakers for this. Overall a very good entry level UHD Blu Ray 4K player

Dolby vision is very impressive.

Submitted by Ninjainfocard - 9/22/2017

Dolby Vision exceeded my expectations. Deep rich color and clarity on a Dolby Vision enabled 4K TV. At the time of purchase this model is 1 of only a handful of players that support Dolby Vision but at about half the price of the others. This player does not have many apps however your other components like your smart 4K TV or gaming console probably already have them built in so this is not a real issue. If you are more concerned with getting the highest fidelity this is the best value. Highly recommend

Although the player provides excellent video and audio the mechanical noise from the drive is unexceptionable. I did not buy the unit for apps as there are other device better suited for that.

When connected through a short cable 3 feet everything seems normal. Another HDMI video source has been used with the same 30-feet setup to confirm. 2. There is audible or loud motor noise when playing certain discs e.g. The Babadook Blu-ray. 3. USB file playback does not support embedded PGS subtitles. Switching between multiple embedded non-PGS subtitles sometimes does not display the correct subtitle. 4. USB file playback does not support ISO files. 5. USB file playback does not have a list view mode where the complete name of a file can be shown.

4k blu ray discs look the same as regular blu ray

Submitted by Silverfox_ - 6/20/2017

When playing 4k blu ray discs from UP970 4K player or standard blu ray on the BP550 on the 65UH6550 65 the image is the same. At least I cannot tell the difference. Changed settings on the UP970. No change. For instance Ive tried Dawn of Justice X-Men Apocalypse Magical Creatures and Where to Find Them these titles come in standard HD 1080P and 4k. Played these discs and the image in not any better in 4k. When I use youtube to view 4k content there is a significant difference. Using 18Gbps certified hdmi cables and 27Gbps cables. Nothing I do changes the image quality of playing 4K discs. The Television can produce 4k imagery when displaying content from Youtube but not from 4k blu ray discs on the movies listed above. Ive updated the firmware on 65UH6550 to 4.30.85. Is there a firmware update soon to be announced for the UP970? Firmware on the BP550 is A000M63. The 4k blu ray disc image quality on the UP970 is no better than standard blu ray on the same movie on the BP550. Also Ive read that HDMI port 1 is the best port to use on 65UH6550 TV other places Ive read that HDMI port 3 is the best to use. Does it make any difference if so Id like to know?

Stunning picture

This is LGs first foray into ultra HD blu-ray. The really did their homework. It is a simple design with no distracting display on the front of the unit Any info you wish can be brought up on screen. HDR movies look crisp clean and lifelike. Works well in an LG environment and syncs perfectly with my new LG OLED tv. The price is very good also for such advanced technology.

Intuitive setup quiet operation superb results

Submitted by middlecalifornian - 6/5/2017

4K disc and 3D Blu-ray upscaling are fantastic truly amazing sharpness with deep colors. Used with a LG 55UH8500 Smart TV. LGs SimpLink was straightforward and intuitive to link to the player and TV enabling both remote controls to operate the player and TV. Used an audio optical cable to connect the player to my decades old way ahead of its time JVC RX9000V 5.1 surround sound system. Had to disable the players auto-HDMI cable selector output and set it to HDMI2 so that sound played only via the optical cable connection. Initially left the players default settings which resulted in out-of-sync audio via the TV speakers instead of the JVC sound system. Had delayed buying this unit after reading several reviews complaining of loud mechanical noise when playing 4K discs. Couple days ago decided to go for it anyway. So far 4K and 3D Blu-ray discs have not caused the player to make any mechanical noise.

Good Stuff leaves you wanting more

Submitted by James Robinson - 5/22/2017

I have found this player to be a great companion piece to my 65UH8500. What struck me as strange is the lack of apps that are available and the revelation that my player can recognize youtube videos in HDR but my TV cant. If you do pick up this great player check and make sure your player was manufactured in March 2017 and later. I love the slo mo function. Using my TV remote to capture great scenes in Planet Earth II is remarkable. This Player makes me happy I have a LG TV.
