What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst DCD Player ever Purchased this as it had the features I wanted however when it came to playing DVD (BluRay or 4K) the noice of the disc motor was so loud you could not hear the sound of the TV. I soon changed to Sony

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not play BD100 triple layer 4k uhd This machine will not play the above without freezing or locking up.The new model ubk90 is no better and LG have made no attempt to fix this issue.As far as I am concerned LG 4k players are not fit for purpose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Repeated issues I bought one of these players to go with an LG tv, the picture quality etc. when it plays is spot on, the promised dolby vision update came out however I cannot in recommend it as my first player would whine at a ridiculous level when playing discs, this was returned for a full refund as it was "beyond economical repair". As the price had dropped over £100 I got a refund and purchased another, now on several discs it just freezes at certain points in the film, examples are Wonder Woman, Watchmen, War for the planet of the apes, the list goes on. I am hoping to be able to get another full refund so I can purchase literally any other 4k player than this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor product Purchased just over a year ago ready for my retirement. It is only gets used in the winter time when I get to sit down and watch TV or Films. It has always cut out and shows as no signal on my TV. (Have replaced the correct type of HDMI cable twice with ever more expensive ones thinking it was that at fault). Rebooting usually makes it stay on at least for half of a DVD. Today I tried a 4K dvd and I thought someone had put my lawn mower in the cabinet it sits in. It remained noisey for about 15 minutes, then went to a moderate noise. After an hour or so, it got noisey again to be followed soon after by a no signal message on my TV. Am going to Currys to get a SONY later this week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic machine / Fantastic Value Despite the negative reviews you may have read about the UP970, as long as you have the latest firmware update it works absolutely perfectly and runs absolutely silently when playing any kind of Blu-ray disc. (Neither have been opened and modified) I have 2 now: one in the bedroom says it all about its quiet operation. At the discount price they are now incredible value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture quality I have had this player for just over a week, it plays everything I put on in stunning detail, Upscaling DVD Bluray, and 4k looks stunning, one of the quietest players I have ever owned, would recommend this as a very good all-round player.
