    Good 4K player for the price

    Works well playing 4K discs and also up-converting blu ray movies. Good features for the money. Can control the player with my Sony TV remote. Kinda miss a front display, but you can easily bring up disc info pressing pause on the remote. Remote is VERY basic. When setting the TV control buttons on the remote to control a non Samsung TV, I found the instructions in the manual very confusing. The manual shows the numbers 1-0 in the illustration, but what you can't see is the button text under the number. Additionally the example does not specify the button name for the numbers. I was bringing up the numbers using the 123 button and that just did not work. To help anyone else that is having a problem, this is the correct way to do it. Using Remote Control Buttons to Enter TV Codes: 1. Press and hold the (TV Power) button. 2. While holding the (TV Power) button, press the buttons on the remote that correspond to a two-digit TV Code from TV list. Use the key below as a guide for the numbers. 123 button = 1 DISC MENU button = 2 POP UP button = 3 UP = 4 LEFT = 5 RIGHT = 6 DOWN = 7 RETURN = 8 HOME = 9 TOOLS = 0 For example: To enter code 01, while holding down the TV power button, press the TOOLS button for 0 and then press the 123 button for 1. I did call Samsung support, and they were very helpful.

    The Samsung UBD-M8500 is excellent

    I was already using a UBD-M8500 in the bedroom of my house on an LG 4k TV and it worked great. I wanted a second UBD-M8500 to use in the living room on a Samsung 4k TV, so I bought another one at BB. The UBD-M8500 does a very good job playing 4k HDR disks, regular blu ray disks, and dvd disks. The upscaling of regular blu ray disks and DVDs to near 4k quality is excellent. Samsung has an excellent app store, where you can find the major apps to install such as: Netflix, Vudu, Fandango Now, Roku Channel, Google Play Movies, Amazon Video, Crackle, Youtube, Accuweather, Pandora Radio, Amazon Music, and many more. The blu ray player is DLNA certified, so you can play mp3 music and mp4 video files from a device such as WD MyCloud or even a usb thumb drive. The Wifi works great. The blu ray player also has a built in web browser too.

    The best equipment for the best price at Best Buy

    When my wife and I purchased our new Samsung UHD TV from Best Buy we also decided that we would need a UHD Blu-ray player to complete the UHD experience. The sales staff at Best Buy assured us that this particular player would be perfect and they were absolutely right. The picture quality is outstanding, the ease of operation is second to none and the price was right. We have this player programmed into our Harmony remote so whenever we use it it’s as simple as pressing one button installing a disc and watching a video. The only thing that we use the provided remote for is changing settings on the player. We are very pleased with the quality of the player and the clarity of the picture it provides.

    Excellent for streaming and Blu-Ray

    When I purchased a Samsung QLED 4K TV I knew I needed the accessories to get the most out of the TV's quality. I purchased a Samsung Atmos sound bar to get add to the experience. The trick with a 4K TV is needing 4K material, so a 4K Blu-Ray player made sense. To take advantage of Atmos you need an external device to connect via your sound bar. The UBD-M8500 provided the best of both at a good price. It supports Atmos, so UHD Atmos Blu-Rays look and sound awesome. If you want to stream a 4k UHD Atmos from Vudu, this player is perfect. I am picky and this made me happy!

    I upgraded my home theater with this high-quality Samsung 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player. I combined it with a 4K Samsung TV which I bought earlier. Somehow, I thought the 4K TV by itself was enough to run 4K Blu-Ray DVDs. It was not. But, now combining both (and with surround sound), it's just like being in the movie theater. When I watched the 4K DVD of Avengers: Infinity War, I just about lost my mind. It took me a couple of days to watch the whole thing because I kept re-running scenes to absorb all the details. In summary, this was a great purchase!

    Excellent Quality/Easy to Install

    Last month a storm fried my old blueray player (through a surge protector!). It was actually a blessing in disguise. I looked at blueray players in Consumer Reports and this one had a good rating at a price I liked. The install was quick and easy--I simply unplugged the cables from my old one and then plugged them into the new one. The onscreen instructions were easy to follow. There is one thing I will mention--it is true from the other reviews that the highlight is not bright when making your selection. Other than that, I love this product. I was surprised and pleased by the difference in visual quality/resolution. It was almost like I had a new TV.

    I wanted the TV, soundbar and blu-ray to all be ATMOS, with ultra high everything. The picture is stunning, it looks kind of like 3D and sort of surreal. I've not seen a movie at home that looks like you have people standing in the living room with you. It gives you tons of options to twerk your sound and picture such as; Aspect ratio, HDMI color, dynamic range, and DTS Neo just to name a few. This was a great purchase to complement my Samsung NU8000 TV and Samsung 7.1.4 speakers. I guess the only thing I'm missing is the Galaxy Note 9...oh well can't have it all. LOL!

    The Best Available

    Samsung does it again. I tested the Sony, LG and Samsung with my Pioneer Elite VSX-90 home theater receiver and my Samsung SUHD 8500 series HDTV. All HDR capable with true 4:4:4 passthrough. HDMI 2.2 compliant. In other words, every component shakes hands properly! The Samsung wins hands down in every aspect. The picture is highly detailed from a 4K blu-ray disc beyond anything I could ever imagine! Great extra online content displays in all its 4K glory. Even the menus and options are in 4K! This is an amazing product with very fast load times too. YouTube 4K looks stunning. No choppines whatsoever. Finally, listen to FLAC music on the available USB port. A true dream machine!

    I purchased this to use with my new Samsung 4K Tv. It looks very sleek and doesn't take up a lot of room. It has the ability to be used with the old Blu-Ray DVDs that I purchased many years ago. It has excellent quality. There's also an optical port to set up with your home theater system. The Samsung Tv remote has 100% control over the 4k Blu-Ray player too. It helps alleviating using many remotes. Absolutely great purchase! Best Buy also priced matched the app from the store which took it to $149 (50%) off and I received a $20 Best Buy gift card. The price match actually dropped the 4 year Geek Squad down another $10.

    This Blu-ray player was very easy to hook up, and set up and operation were just as simple. Very quick to learn how to control and Wi-Fi connection worked perfectly. This is my first Blu-ray player and don't know why it took me so long to get one. I have been using it exclusively for all my DVD videos for about six weeks now. In combination with my new QLED Samsung television I am thoroughly enjoying my new TV watching experience. You can't go wrong with a purchase like this.

    It was time for an upgrade. I wanted to get a 4K Ultra DVD/Blu-Ray player that would allow to still view all of my DVD collection without having to purchase them all over again. I was glad to find this device at Best Buy. The picture quality is stellar, and the additional ability to stream Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and Amazon Prime is awesome. My only complaint is that the remote control that came packaged with the player was dead on arrival. I had to buy a universal remote just to finish the setup procedures. Still, I absolutely love this player and would recommend to anyone who owns a 4K Ultra TV and still wants to hold on to their DVD collection.

    Since the last DVD player I bought was the Toshiba HD DVD, it was time to upgrade. We love our Samsung UHD TV, so this player seemed like the best choice. It plays nice with the TV, and it would be a great option for turning a non-smart TV into a Smart TV without replacing the whole TV. Make sure you select the right one - wireless (& smart) or wired - for your needs. The sales rep said I didn't need the wireless version since I already had a smart TV, but you have to connect to the internet to set up the system, so we had to go back and exchange. We didn't need the smart bundle, but it's nice to have & we can move it to a different TV whenever we want.

    First, the sleek design looks great in our media cabinet. This player is easy to set up & in just a couple minutes we were streaming Netflix. Love the ability to download a variety of apps like Hulu, Amazon, WatchESPN, weather, Youtube and a bunch more. UHD picture looks great steaming or playing a BluRay. The remote is small, but I like that & it was pretty easy to program it to my tv. (Does not have backlit buttons). Overall, we’re very happy w/ this purchase!

    The price point is the only downside to this product. It is priced a bit high for my tastes, but when the kids demolished the old bluRay, I went to the store and bought this one. It works great and has very responsive remote as well as power-on time. It does a good job of upscaling DVDs and BluRay movie are even upscaled. The 4K quality is good and doesn't have that over-vivid quality that I loathe in most systems. The menu system itself is standard for this generation of Samsung products and is easy enough for my 4 year old to learn and use. All-in-all, it is a great buy and has me stuck on Samsung products!!

    I purchased this to go along with my 4k Samsung TV. This 4k dvd player produces a great image. It includes an optical output so you can link it directly to the TV and the surround sound system at the same time. Streaming 4k content from the internet with the included aps, is an option to quickly access a large source of 4k sample videos. My only complaint is that the remote is very simplistic and aggravating to use. The Samsung TV remote controls the dvd player without any programing and is a much better remote.

    I purchased this 4K Blu-Ray disc player and I have to say I really enjoy the quality of the product. It was easy to set-up, the disc buffering speed is impressive. So far, we have only watched HD Blu-Ray movies as the 4K TV is still on the way, but with this older TV, there is still a quite noticeable difference in performance. Besides, the WiFi module in my old player stopped working, good time for an upgrade

    Great player for 4K HDR movies

    I got this player because I wanted to watch movies in 4K HDR and my previous player did not support HDR. I love samsung products and If you have a Samsung TV and get this player they talk to each other and turning on the player also turns the TV on. To make sure you get the 4k HDR experience you need to read carefully the quick start guide because depending on the TV you have, you have to plug in the HDMI cable into the correct HDMI port on your tv.

    We had purchased a 4K UHD television nearly two years ago but were still using our original blu ray player. We finally decided to move up in the world and purchase a 4K UHD player and now we wonder why we waited so long! The picture quality is amazing. Plus, before we installed it, we thought we were hearing the best quality sound out of our Bose Soundbar, we were wrong! Once we started using the new 4K UHD player, the sound that came out of that soundbar was amazing, like sitting in a movie theater! Great investment!

    I have this 4K UHD player connected to my Samsung Q7F 75” QLED. The visual experience is second to none. The player itself has a nice selection of built in tools(via menu) to enhance your movie watching experience. The front mounted USB port is a nice touch for accessibility and a stylish cover if not in use. When you connect this player to a Samsung smart TV it is automatically detected and correctly identified in your televisions menu. I definitely recommend this to anyone with a high end 4K HDR TV.

    Very large screen (74.5") with high 240 refresh

    This extra large tv screen (74.5") replaced my 8 year old Sony 60"; the energy cost is expected to be less. Free delivery did not mean free installation (my mistake) but my brother and I set it up in less than 15 minutes. I did discover I needed a new amplifier and cables to get the 4K benefits offered by the screen and PS4. At this point, I am very satisfied with the purchase and would recommend its 240 refresh rate on a giant screen to any avid gamer.
