      Answer

      Not a 4k player - it plays regular Blu-Ray discs with upscaling.

        Answer

        If you have a 1080p (non-UHD) device you must change the default player's UHD setting manually to 'off' for it to work properly. I almost took this player back before changing this setting and the picture is now better than any Blu-Ray player I've ever owned. For me it didn't work at all on my 1080p projector until I turned this setting to 'off'.

          yes and it can try to upscale image to 4K TV but is limited better picture for DVDs. Bluray does better on upscaling and improving picture quality. Regular LCD or LED TV will give 1080p picture quality.

          My TV is not 3D, will the blu-ray player make it 3D?   (5 Answers)

            Answer

            No. And here is why. 3D is not about just player, or just a TV set. It's about TV + Glasses + Player. There are several (at least two) different 3D-technologies on the market, and for each 3D TV one has to use _proper_ 3D glasses: 1. "active 3D" uses switching left/right view by blocking (like 50 times per sec) between left and right eye. This kind TV must have a glass-TV synchronization device inside. 2. "passive 3D" involves polarized glasses. This kind TV must have a polarized screen coating. "Normal", or non-3D TV doesn't have neither of these. No 3D-player can introduce any of these _hardware_ features to a TV.

                Answer

                The player will play discs if you want to watch movies without WiFi... To use the apps. (Netflix, VUDU, etc...) you need an internet connection and this is achieved through a WiFi connection and an ethernet cable connection. This player offers both options.

                  There is not an indicator light but rather a display on the front of the unit showing words like "ON", "OFF" or "PLAY". There is also a time counter displayed when the movie is playing.

                    Where in the product description (or by viewing the picture) does it say anything about "recording" or "VHS" This is a "Blu-Ray player"

                      Answer

                      It does upscale but if you want to play 4k dvds, you need a true 4k Blu-Ray player which are in the 400 dollar price range currently.

                        Answer

                        The item in question here is a BLU RAY PLAYER. If you're trying to play a DVD from outside the USA, it most likely won't work. However, if you're interested in watching high definition content, which is the main reason for buying a blu ray player, then you would most likely --- not always -- have no trouble watching a Blu ray disc made in Europe or Japan or wherever on this blu ray disc b/c MOST BDs are not region locked like DVDs are, which makes no sense to me, but regardless; region codes for DVDs would cease to exist if the key to playing a DVD that Hollywood didn't intend for you to buy in the first place was simply going to the store and buying a Blu ray player. Region codes exist to keep people from advance screenings of movies. In China, THE HUNGER GAMES MOCKINGJAY PART I didn't get released for months after the film was released to the US. The film was already on video by the time Chinese theaters were granted permission by the Chinese gov't to see the movie. Ticket sales would have drastically decreased if region codes didn't exist. Of course, international law has no loyalty to Hollywood, so in many places, such as England, you can buy a multi-region DVD player at the store w/o any red tape. Us Americans have the blessing and curse of birthing Hollywood. Hollywood is USA showbiz, but its a business like any other and if someone who knew nothing about retail tried telling Sam Walton that his Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner priced at $20 was a fleece to the American people, as much as he loved saying "The customer is always right" the fact of the matter is that said individual is not running Wal-Mart and would be clueless if they were hired to do so.
