Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great price, good picture, but loud disc spinning Had for less than a month. Disc spinning noise during playback. We all can hear it even with volume on tv and soundbar up. I am in process of returning it. We'll see how smooth the process goes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just OK 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice pitcture After the second update, (Dolby vision), Everything looks better even Netflix. I found that the more you use it, The better the performance gets. And Netflix 4K looks/sharp and clean. Not sorry at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you want to really see 4K I've owned the UP970 for several months and if you really want to see what 4K is all about, you'll own one too. Coupled with my LG OLED 55" TV it's like looking through a window onto the real world. Even regular Blu-Ray HD DVDs are improved to nearly match 4K DVDs. A bit expensive, but you get what you pay for.

 I am thinking about purchasing this Blu-ray player my question is has the Dolby Vision software firmware update been released as of today September 29, 2017 and does the player support Dolby Atmos or dts:x? 

Asked by: Specmoc
I just bought the UP970. I have run the update but it isn't the version listed by LGJoel, supposedly available August 21, 2017. Mine is at BD.37079.70524.C and it says it is up to date. Today is October 18, 2017.

Can this be mounted or vertical behind a wall mounted TV?

There aren't any mounting brackets available for the LG 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc™ Player with HDR Compatibility, Model # UP970 and it is not designed to be mounted vertically. You can inquire about Mounting Shelves that can be mounted under the TV that the Blu-ray Disc™ Player can sit on...^IFV

Will this play the "zone 2" dvds?

Asked by: Sasha123
NHi Sasha123. The American DVD Copy Control Association also requires that DVD player manufacturers incorporate the regional-playback control (RPC) system, so although the LG 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc™ Player with HDR Compatibility, Model # UP970 is a Blu-ray Player, it will not play region 2 DVD discs. The region coding system for Blu-Ray Discs varies from that of DVDs and in total, there are 3 separate Blu-Ray region codes. These codes are classified alphabetically as Region A, Region B, and Region C. Blu-ray discs that have been manufactured in region A are embedded with region code A, and are therefore only usable with players from region A. The same is applicable for regions B and C. As of right now, 4k movies titles are not region coded. With a 4k Blu-ray Player, you should be able to play a 4k Blu-ray disc from anywhere in the world. With that being said, it’s important to understand that standard Blu-ray and DVD discs retain their region-coding on 4k Blu-ray Players, so you will not be able to play foreign Blu-ray or DVD discs on a 4k Player unless it’s a region-free model...^IFV
