What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it I love the fact that my LG 4K Blu-ray player works seamlessly with my LG six series TV. It showcases great blacks and whites it also showcases HDR when it sees it is a great piece of tech. I would recommend this to anyone who’s looking for a really good 4K Blu-ray player [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing I purchased this item in February, 2018 to pair with our newly-purched LG OLED TV. This player has always been a bit quirky but it did an excellent job at upscaling. The Blue-ray discs that we have look better than ever during playback. In March of 2019, one month after the warranty expired (!), it started to act up during playback in that the picture would randomly flicker on and off and then go to a white screen losing both audio and video. Of course I would check the cables only to find that they were secure. Even the firmware is up-to-date. When I turn the unit off and then back on again, it works fine...until it acts up again which could be in 10 minutes, 60 minutes, or the next time we play a DVD. Very disappointed that it lasted only a year! The OLED tv, however, is magnificent. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice paper weight Unfortunately I'm 5 months past my warranty. I've only played blurays up until now. I've just started buying 4k blurays. When playing them, there is a loud whirring noise from the disc tray that makes it impossible to listen to the sound track of the movie. Upon searching Google I've found other people complaining about the same issue. Customer service refuses to even acknowledge the problem. I wish I could leave 0 stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Update has made netflix inoperable Received this as a Christmas present, was working fine until tonight when I performed a software upgrade. Went to use Netflix and the screen flashes colors and goes black. I have to either turn the player off and back on to play blurays or open tray and it goes back to main screen. I really regret doing the update.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bug Dolby Vision Flashing Netfkix I bought this device in April 2018, I think Exellent, more continuous So far without an update to regularize the problem of intermittent Dolby Vision Bug, that is the interface DV open, HD movie to DV, the image looks bad when DV is forced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality I just received this for Christmas and it was so easy to set up and the quality of picture is great, but I’m confused on the USB port. I connected my iPhone thinking I can play music from it and it just says no connected device... what am I missing? [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great picture but... I bought the UP970 when I bought my first OLED TV. It worked great for a couple months, then is started humming and vibrating loud enough to hear it over the surround sound. I tried stopping the disc and starting again, sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t. Here in the last 2 months, it has started freezing up occasionally when I’m playing a blu ray or 4K disc. Not exactly pleasing when this happens. Also not thrilled no other streaming services besides Netflix and YouTube can be added. Looking to change player out but haven’t found a reasonably priced replacement. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
