Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible picture quality I bought this about a year ago to replace my Samsung Blu-ray player that I had to replace 3 times. This was a great switch. I've had zero problems with my player and it has an incredible picture quality to it. I'll definitely purchase again.

Is this device (with its original software included) compatible with "4K (2160p) UHD Blu-ray™ presentation in Dolby Vision (HDR10 compatible)"?

Asked by: IanS
The LG 3D Blu-ray Disc Playback & M-DISC™ Support, Model # BP50NB40 will play regular Blu-ray discs, but it will not play 4K UHD Blu-ray discs. You need a 4K UHD Blu-Ray Disc Player for that...^IFV

I'm a little confused on the USB cable, is it Mini-USB on one end and standard A-type USB on the other that plugs into the computer?

Asked by: mediaguy333
That is correct. The USB port on the LG 3D Blu-ray Disc Playback & M-DISC™ Support, Model # BP50NB40 is a mini-USB port so the cable that plugs into the drive has to have a mini USB on that end...^IFV
