    Returned the Sony UBP-X800M2 for this. Half the weight and much smaller profile. Easily fits in tighter shelfs. Works perfectly with LG TVS SIMPLINK function and this player automatically turns on DOLBY VISION unlike the Sony where DOLBY VISION will need to be turned on manually for each movie.

    I am a casual watcher of movies and TV. The LG 4K Blu-ray Player suited my needs and has more than enough features should I be curious to explore them. I have this player connected to my LG 32” UHD HDR Monitor with FreeSync in white and use my Sennheiser HD 560S Wired Open Aire Over-the-Ear Headphones for an isolated audio and movie-watching experience. The playback is great, the startup and shutdown times are convenient, and the imagery and sounds are equally stable and loud. The remote is handy and the homing bars or small bumps on certain buttons help the user remember and find the right buttons to press when the lights are off. You do have to point the remote directly in line with the light sensor. At an angle, it may not respond to the first press. If you need a Blu-ray player that can stream YouTube, play music CDs, display images and videos via USB, and play DVDs, Blu-rays, and 4K discs, this one from LG takes the cake.

    This is a very functional and nice looking item that I got for an excellent price (on sale + open box item). I would definitely recommend it especially if found on sale. For scale, the tv in the picture is 65” so this is a larger disk player.

    Best of all, the clear picture quality is good. The TV is also LG, so it is very easy to connect. It's a very good buy. We will connect it to the projector later.

    This is a good product and easily picks up the Wi-Fi signal from the basement. However, it only came with Netflix preloaded and no instructions to load Prime for those of us that are tech challenged. I had told the sales person I wanted both Prime and Netflix but it's my fault for not reading the box myself prior to purchase.

    Picture quality is excellent as I suspected it would be. Very, very nice. The experience is more like looking out a window rather than watching a video display. The 4K movies I watched and the upscaling job the player did on regular Blu-ray discs was top notch in my opinion. Regular DVDs I watched were not very satisfying however and I have to believe this was due to the source material rather than any deficiency of the UBK90. The remote control has a number of buttons made of translucent rubber, but are not backlit. In this day and age I find it puzzling that manufacturers of televisions and source hardware do not provide remote controls with back lighting. A lot of my TV watching is in a room with no lights or low ambient light and quite often I want to pause or “rewind” programming or perform some other function and I often struggle to find the correct button on the remote. This LG remote does provide some tactile clues to help you navigate in the dark, but I would still prefer full backlighting. The remote takes only one AAA battery - seeing this in a remote is a first for me, and the battery is provided. An HDMI cable is not provided with the player. The power cord is attached to the chassis and is not removable - this might be inconvenient for some installs when swapping out equipment with concealed wiring. The front panel controls on the unit are basic: power, drawer open, play/pause, and stop. The buttons are raised symbols that are impossible to tell apart by feel and none of them are illuminated. There is a faint green light on the front panel to indicate the power is on. I miss the old days when there was a digital counter on the front panel, but on this LG there is no display of any type. There is a front panel USB port to allow you to connect other devices with content on them. The unit makes very little noise when running. The top of the case is flat which makes it possible to stack hardware - some makers have had case tops that were not flat and I would find that annoying if I wanted to sit something on top of the player. Provided apps are only Netflix and YouTube. This is probably of no real concern since most 4K televisions are probably smart TVs with a multitude of built-in apps. Menus are easy to navigate, unit responds to remote commands crisply, setup is easy, wi-fi connection and firmware updating is simple. This player supports a wide variety of optical disc formats and file formats…I can’t believe there are any more out there that are not on the list of supported types, nor did I even know this many existed. The LG UBK90 is a moderately priced Ultra-HD Blu-ray player that should satisfy most anyone looking to update their hardware to 4K capability. The only thing that disappointed me was the lack of remote illumination, but that is probably the case with 90+ percent of current remote controls, so I don’t feel right dinging this player a full star for that.

    Pretty good 4 K blu ray player

    This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.

    I've had the LG UBK90 for about two weeks now, and so far it has done a very nice job on playing regular blu rays and 4K blu rays, not to mention listening to 3 or 4 cd's. My LG is hooked up using both of the HDMI out's on the back of the player. HDMI #1 goes directly to my 2017 LG 65" B7 Oled 4K tv and HDMI #2 goes into my Marantz SR7008 for the audio. My Marantz is about 5 years old, so it will not pass 4K signals through the receiver to the tv. If you have a newer receiver, and it allows the 4K signal to pass through your receiver, then you'll only need to use one HDMI cable from the LG which would go into your receiver, then from your receiver another HDMI cable to your 4K tv The LG UBK90 unit is pretty basic. There is not any type of digital display to show movie progress. Something that not necessarily missed, but very strange to see a player without any display. On the front of the unit, there are buttons for eject, play/pause, stop, and power off/on. Next to the off/on button there in one tiny light that will glow red when the power is off, and green when the power is on. You can see the green light in my first photo. And, next to the red/green light there is an uncovered USB input. The rear is pretty bare bones as well. LAN port to connect to the internet. You can connect to the internet wirelessly as well. HDMI #1 out and HDMI #2 out and optical audio out. So, since this is a pretty bare bones 4K player, it is very simple to hook up. But, my player came with just a tiny sheet of paper for the manual. Not much info on it. I'd recommend going to LG's website and downloading the owners manual. It's 61 pages long and goes into much greater detail on the player. This LG will play 4K blu rays, standard blu rays and dvd's. It will up convert standard blu rays to near 4K quality and does it pretty good. It will also up convert dvd's, but I did not try that as I no longer have any dvd's. I was pretty disappointed to find that the LG UBK90 will not play SACD's or DVD-audio discs. The player is 3D capable which is nice, but my Oled is not, so I could not test that out to see how well it does 3D playback. While I use my Roku to stream content, the LG is again bare bones in this department. It only has Netflix and Youtube. Youtube did very well at streaming, and I don't have Netflix to test that app. Hopefully in the near future more apps will be available for this LG unit. A big plus for this player is that it supports BOTH Dolby Vision and HDR10. Dolby Vision will come in the near future in a firmware update. HDR (High Dynamic Range) reproduces a greater dynamic range of brightness levels, bringing greater contrast & wider color spectrum to your 4K tv. Go into a Best Buy store, and just about every tv displayed, especially the Oled's, will show the difference between HDR on and off. When on, the colors and contrast will blow you away. Almost like comparing a black and white tv to a color one. The HDR is more important in my opinion than the 4K resolution. The remote control is not back lit. Something that almost all consumers want, but the manufactures don't listen. I'd willingly pay $5.00 to $10.00 more for something if it included a back lit remote. The remote is pretty standard, but something I found neat, was that it only takes one AAA battery instead of two batteries. One AAA battery comes with the player by the way. Overall, I'm giving this LG UBK90 4 stars. Personally for the regular price of $299.00 I think it's overprice by maybe $75.00 or so. It's a pretty bare bones 4K player, but it plays 4K content very well, and up converts standard blu's very well too. Now we just need that firmware update for the Dolby Vision. Overall, I'd recommend the LG UBK90 4K player.

    Beautiful Picture; Limited Features

    The LG UBK90 is a worthy successor to LG's previous player, the UP970. It is Dolby Vision-compatible out of the box and should be an excellent 4K Blu-ray player for most users. However, it's missing a few features that some A/V enthusiasts would enjoy. PROS: - Easy set up. Simply connect an HDMI cable (make sure it's a Certified Premium cable), plug it into a power outlet, and then follow the on-screen instructions. - Very fast and responsive. Discs are fast to load and the unit responds to commands from the remote quickly. - Dual HDMI outputs. HDMI 2 is reserved for audio-only output. Perfect for those with older soundbars or receivers that can't pass through Dolby Vision or HDR signals. - Beautiful picture quality. I've tried several UHD Blu-rays, 3D Blu-rays, regular Blu-rays, and even some old DVDs. All look very nice. For UHD Blu-rays, the player automatically engages Dolby Vision or HDR10 depending on the format of the disc. Unlike some other 4K Blu-ray players, this player supports Dolby Vision out of the box -- you don't have to wait for any firmware updates. - Quiet operation. A common complaint of the previous UP970 model was that the disc drive sounded like a jet engine. The UBK90 has been extremely quiet during all discs that I've played. - Solid build quality. It's not as sturdy or hefty as some competing models, but it feels noticeably heavier and more solidly built than the UP970. - The remote control is lightweight and comfortable to hold. CONS: - There is no "subtitle" button on the remote. If you want to turn on subtitles during movie playback, you'll need to press the "info" button and then turn on subtitles via an on-screen menu. - The user interface design of this player is archaic - like something out of the early 2000s. It works, but I personally think it's time for LG to add a bit more polish. - The settings menu is extremely limited. There are no advanced audio/video settings. No Bluetooth connectivity for wireless headphones. No obvious way to stream media from a home network. - There is no advanced playback information while watching a disc. Some other Blu-ray players are capable of displaying detailed video/audio codec information as well as bitrate during disc playback. Likely not a big deal for average users, but advanced users might miss having this information available. - Only two streaming services - Netflix and YouTube - are available. It doesn't appear that anymore will be added. OTHER THOUGHTS: - There is a known issue with Dolby Vision over HDMI on LG OLED TVs. During certain movies, black levels (particularly the black bars above and below the picture) will appear as a murky grey rather than perfect black. Usually, the black levels will flicker back-and-forth between perfect black and grey during the entire movie. I tried to watch The Matrix 4K disc (with Dolby Vision) on the UBK90 connected to my LG OLED C6 TV. The elevated black levels were so distracting that I had to stop watching. Unfortunately, there is no way to force the UBK90 into HDR10 mode for discs that have Dolby Vision, which would solve the black level issue (at the expense of Dolby Vision). So in order to watch The Matrix, I had to reconnect an older 4K Blu-ray player that does not support Dolby Vision. Some discs do not have this issue: Black Panther and Saving Private Ryan appeared to play in Dolby Vision with perfect black levels. Regardless, LG has acknowledged that this is a problem with its OLED TVs, but still has not fixed it. It needs to be fixed ASAP. OVERALL: If you're looking for a no-frills 4K Blu-ray player to go with your new Dolby Vision-enabled TV, this is a great option. However, competing models in the same price range offer more advanced features and more streaming services that some users will enjoy. Perhaps most importantly, LG needs to address the elevated Dolby Vision black level issue via firmware updates ASAP. Otherwise, the benefits of many Dolby Vision Blu-ray discs will be lost on owners of LG OLED TVs.

    Great uhd bluray player. Its silent, doesn't have any problems playing uhd blurays (no noise nor skips or other problems). It supports HDR and Dolby vision out of the box! There was a firmware update right away, so always check and keep it updated. I tried a couple of uhd blurays and dolby vision played fine and the blacks where on point. The interface is a little bit dated, however its usable and works fine. It also has 2 hdmi out ports, just in case someone has an older audio receiver with no hdmi 2.0, so you can still output dolby truehd or dts master hd to it. Video quality is great, upscaling of regular blurays is great too! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to jump into the dolby vision bandwagon without paying an arm and leg like other brands.

    Great Player - Especially for Dolby Vision

    When I acquired my first Dolby-Vision capable 4K TV, there weren't a lot of options in terms of Dolby Vision Blu-Ray players. Those few that were available were either very expensive, had known "issues", and/or they weren't actually going to support DV until a future firmware update would be released. I wound up purchasing the Sony UPB-X800, which is an excellent 4K Blu-ray player, but doesn't support DV. (I knew that at the time, so it wasn't a surprise.) The X800 has served me well (and will continue to do so in another room), but when the UBK-90 became available, I decided to take a chance on it .. and I'm glad I did. Admittedly, I've had it for only a short while, but so far, it has flawlessly played every disc I've tried in it. (I have a combination of regular Blu-ray discs, 4K discs, and 3D discs as well.) It's quiet, quick-loading, has a solid build feel to it, and yes, it supports Dolby Vision right out of the box. My AV receiver supports DV pass-through, so I'm using only one of the UBK 90's two HDMI outs. However, the other HDMI out can be used in case you need to send the video directly to your TV, and the audio directly to the receiver. My first test of course was with a movie that's encoded for Dolby Vision. I chose "Despicable Me 3". The moment I started playing it, the words "Dolby Vision" appeared on my TV, indicating the mode I was now in. The picture quality was fantastic, and I had no problems with playback or navigation. The unit itself is very (almost totally) quiet, and disc loading is relatively quick. I've given this player 5-stars because it's everything I want in a player, but there are a couple of things that some folks may not like. First, there is no front-panel display ... only a few buttons, a USB port, and a power indicator light (plus the disc tray, of course). I personally don't care one way or another about the lack of a display, so I'm fine with that. My TV is my display. The only other thing that some may not like is the lack of apps. Currently, only Netflix and YouTube are supported ... nothing else. That's not to say more won't ever be coming, but that's all there is at the moment. Here again, I don't mind because my TV already supports all of the streaming services I care about, and there are plenty of third-party media streamers on the market, so it's not a big deal for me. With the UBK-90, It seems that LG has addressed the issues that were (reportedly) plaguing one of their earlier models. Overall, I think they've made a fine 4K Blu-ray player

    I was a little concerned when I bought this unit but I picked it up as it was marked down and it came with a free Harmony 635 which I wanted for the theater area so I didn't have to rely on Google Home or my phone for everything. I'm very pleased with the quality of 4K video and HDR. Having Dolby Vision was a plus although I can't testify to that. Purchased the 900e earlier this year so I can confirm the HDR10 is very good. (4/5) Most surprising to me about the player was Blu-Ray 1080P playback and the upscaling. I'd heard all the ravings about the best Samsung, Sony, and Oppo players but the UBK90 did wonders to my Rush Hour trilogy. Some of the dark scenes in the first movie had me pausing to make sure I was seeing things straight. Crisp! Absolutely crisp! Don't get me wrong, if you stare hard enough and get close enough, you'll see some breakdown, fuzz, snow...whatever you want to call it. But from 8-12 feet away, I was beaming. (4/5) During playback, I found the unit is pretty quiet. I don't hear it unless i'm popping the tray open or nobody is in the room with me while there's no sound. Don't worry about this adding to your movie soundtrack. (4/5) The build quality is meh. It's not horrible but it's not great. The top is textured in some corrugated plastic it feels. The remote I used initially and it was satisfactory. Nothing special about it though. No crazy programmed functions. I quickly replaced it with the Harmony 635. That said, I can't add this particular player to other Harmony hubs in the house. I guess Harmony haven't included it in their repository yet . (3/5) The worse part about the player was the UI. Put plainly, it sucks. It is just poor. The bright white and pink greeting screen is absolutely atrocious. Not sure who picked this but I hope their name isn't Baby because they need to go directly to the corner. The white and silver menu screens work but I really don't understand why they went with white. I almost went 0/5 on this one but ...naw. They deserve (0/5) for this. Last special features. You get a Ethernet port and wireless connectivity. No 3D as far as I know. If you're looking for great app support, this box is not for you. Netflix and YouTube are all you get. There is a USB port which you can use to play some digital movies, view photos, or jam to some tunes but who seriously carries about USB thumb drives for media playback these days? I was definitely disappointed to see no easy way to play media off Network drives. It may be option but I sure didn't see it. (2/5) My comparisons are up against an Xbox One S in which it averaged a 3/5. You'll probably find this on par with a 3/5. If you just want a 4K Blu Ray player with very good upscaling, this device is for you at the right price. Price is key here. Anything above $200 and you should look elsewhere.

    This player is by far one of the best out there in my experience. It strikes a nice balance between price and performance. I have an LG OLED alongside a projector and they both work well after you tweak some menu settings. What is most convenient is not having to manually set Dolby Vision with each title you watch like some other players. This was important to me with the content I watch. I have also tested many standard Blu-Ray titles, 3D Blu-ray, and some DVDs without issue. I have not had any issues with this player in my home theater. The only thing I can add is that it would be nice if the remote featured Bluetooth. That would be a big bonus but it isn't a massive downside.

    Dolby Vision Performs Well

    I have been using an LG UP875 4K HDR player for the last 3 years. I recently upgraded my TV to an LG OLED with Dolby Vision and now require a Dolby Vision Player. After reviews it was said the Sony UBPX-700 was the best value for the buck. I later found a fly in that ointment where Dolby Vision (DV) is manually operated. Read my review on the Sony UBP-X700. This was a deal breaker and I returned the Sony for the LG. The LG UBK90 is very similar to the UP875. Setup was a breeze and there are no settings for DV. It's all automatic! The LG UBK90 automatically detects the disc's format. I verified this with all disc formats; Standard Disc, Blu-Ray Disc, UHD 4K HDR Disc, and UHD 4K Dolby Vision Disc. It just automatically sets the playback format based on the disc's encoding. This unit has worked well so far with no issues. The DV picture is better than HDR10 on the LG OLED. Although the LG costs more with less apps than the Sony for the same picture quality, it is worth it for not having the hassle of turning DV on and off in settings. What a pain! Just put the disc in a play and the LG will do the rest. I have no need for apps on a DVD player and at the time of this review BB offers the LG player with a free harmony remote. That helps offset the price if you need one.

    So I have a Vizio TV with Dolby Vision. When I bought it at the end of 2016, the only 4K players with DV were WAY out of my price range, also 95% of my movies are now digital. But some of the movies I really enjoy aren't available in UHD digital with or without DV, but are available on disc, I felt "left out". Also that I was not taking full advantage of my recent home theater overhaul. So I grew impatient for lower prices on DV compatible players and got a Samsung 4k player. I LOVED watching Transformers on 4K HDR disc, it was glorious. However I missed not getting the full potential of DV . Enter LG. With all the mixed reviews of the UP970 and the multiple delays of the DV firmware update, loud fan noise and disc read issues, I was hesitant to grab it. Glad I waited till this Gen 2 beauty. Transformers now with DV on disc (no streaming compression) feels like a brand new movie. Thanks to this player I can enjoy the likes of Transformers, The Matrix and IT in all their DV glory. If the price fits your budget...jump on this one.

    The video on this player is superb, but what's even more amazing is the audio quality!! I use the separate HDMI to port for audio out and it made a noticeable difference in my surround sound movies and music. (Note: quality HDMI interconnects rated for 4K are a must for maximum picture quality) Ultimately, it depends on what you want/expect out of a 4K-UHD player versus what you’re paying. I bought it for just under $150, and it works flawlessly. Paired with my Vizio 65" Series P 4K TV the picture is amazing, and my audio equipment detected and switched over to DTS automatically. If your concern is streaming from multiple apps, you’re limited to Netflix and You Tube, but any newer smart TV you would mate with this should have those additional apps to stream directly. Since this is a 2018 player, future software updates will probably add more apps, but only LG knows for sure. I highly recommend this player as both the audio and video have worked flawlessly for me.

    I love movies. Movies are escapism for a lot of us. When I purchase a movie for my collection, that means that I REALLY enjoyed it and want to experience just like I did when I watched it in the theater. I purchase physical copies of movies knowing that they come with the digital copy. Digital copies are great for on the go or for quick access when using a smart TV. However, digital streaming relies on the internet and a strong connection. With physical copies, I simply place the movie in the player and watch. When I placed John Wick Chapter Two into my LG 4K Ultra HD player, I had no idea of what I was missing. The LG Player enhances and compliments my sound bar in a way that I didn’t know was possible. It was as if I was hearing and watching my movies for the first time. Movies are delivered in a sharp clarity that you’d expect from a 4K movie, and again, I have to mention that it communicates a rich Dolby sound that impresses me with each movie I put in. Even standard Blu-Ray movies are incredible to watch on this LG Player. The design is slim and modern with tactile buttons on the face of the player and a USB port in case you want to share your own videos. YouTube and Netflix are able to be streamed through the LG Player as well in case you just want to utilize the player as a movie hub. However, you’ll have to upgrade your Netflix subscription in order to enjoy their 4K offerings. If you have been putting off getting a 4K player like I had then this player will prove that the wait was worth it.

    I would recommend this to a friend
