Videophiles rejoice! Samsung's new Ultra HD Blu-ray player takes 4K viewing to even bigger and better new heights than ever before. My player is connected to a top tier 2015 model Samsung 65 inch 4K UHDTV. Seriously, first time viewing of 4K content via this device is almost like owning a brand new 4K UHDTV all over again. The new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc format is one of a kind in both video and audio quality. So far, I've viewed two 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs - The Martian and San Andreas. The picture quality is unrivaled. Yes, it certainly does top any type of online 4K streaming option. I own a Dolby Atmos home theater system. In addition to superior picture quality, the true Dolby Atmos audio is unsurpassed. Also, 4K up-conversion of 1080p Blu-ray discs is superior to any previous up-converting Blu-ray player. When I viewed the movie Straight Outta Compton, it looked as close to 4K as any non-4K source I've ever seen. Viewing 4K content via the player's built-in Smart Hub apps produces visually better quality than directly via the TV's built-in apps, primarily due to the player's excellent processor and the ability to utilize the extra rich UHD Color function on the Samsung TV. YouTube 4K, Netflix 4K and Amazon 4K content looks incredible! The only strike against this new player is its undersized, limited function remote control, which has no backlighting feature and only has chapter skip buttons. To fast forward or rewind, the buttons must be held down for two seconds. Personally, I prefer using an "old school" full function Samsung remote with real backlit buttons. All in all, if you're an enthusiast of top notch 4K picture quality, this player will impress in almost every category.

The UBD-K8500 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player offered an immaculate picture on the LG 4K TV that I have. Unfortunately it played perfectly through only 4.5 movies before it began to lock up and become unresponsive. I contacted a very professional customer service rep via live chat and was walked through several diagnostics that indicated the player needed to be repaired. The repair techs determined that the main PCB ('printed circuit board') assembly needed to be replaced. Based on experience I've had with my laptop's Blu-ray player, which always ran hot and would automatically shutdown the laptop unless I used an external cooling fan, I believe this Blu-ray player overheated. The outer case doesn't seem to have much in the line of cooling vents or fans built into it, and it does seem to run hot. Samsung needs to address this matter ASAP, as my player is not the only one to have this issue. I haven't yet received the player back from repair yet. When it arrives, I'll be placing it on an external laptop cooling platform before using it again. Hopefully that will prevent future mishaps from occurring.

                  Your picture/sound are only as good as the equipment providing it and my new Samsung 75" 4K UHD TV needed an upgrade to 4K and this player provides that. The picture and sound are outstanding. You get what you pay for.

                  from Georgia

                  Pros

                  • intuitive start-up
                  • Realistic color
                  • seemless operation

                  Cons

                  • suggested retail price too expensive

                  Best Uses

                    This unit sports your traditional options seen on many Blue Ray players, and takes it a step further with the addition of ultra-high definition viewing, which is true 4K, not upscaling. It synchronizes well with the Samsung Smart 4K TV sets. Just open the disc drawer, and the unit comes on which takes the TV to the correct input to play. There is also a USB hub for playing media files from the player. I'm very pleased with the unit. The picture quality is excellent. This definitely is one of the best purchases I've made.
