What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very noisy Image quality is great but player is very noisy when playing 4K disks. Problem has been reported by many owners in online reviews. Unless LG can fix this problem somehow, it will go back to the store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NO Dolby Vision Play Back I purchased this 4k player on balck friday. Because, it supports Dobly Vision format but disappointment this player has been out in market for almost a year but still no firmware release from LG that can make it play back Dobly Vision format. HDR contents it plays fine nothing very fancy about this player remote control is not very responsive very basic player. Disk drive is very noisy a lot more nosier than my XBOX One X. But when I compare picture quality with XBOX One 4K player there is huge difference in picture quality that is way I got dedicated player (LG UP970) and its worth it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Video BUT only two apps, Netflix and Youtube. Why make a internet streaming device with only two apps, and no way to download more or update, Doesn't upscale, So is the image worth the price tag? This LGs top of the line player, and no bells and whiles? I took mine back to the store today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good hdr I have tested this with a blue ray version of lied of the rings and I must say it was excellent. The definition of the rocks and general environment was well defined. In terms of apps it is poor with only Netflix and youtube. I have user to test it with a dolby vision 4k blue ray as there are hardly any out for sale as yet. This will be the true test as dolby vision is higher than hd10+. But overall oh am pleated as I bought this to go with my LG super uhd tv.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good. but .... Good. but ...-is a product still does not fully match the competition. Perfect image, HDR support, and Dolby Vision. However, the lack of smart. No: DLNA, Internet browser, a wide range of applications.
