    "Good 4K...Love it...Very good Blue ray player I bought a Samsung BD player two days ago I had issues from day one with having it know if I got 5.1 doesn't see it swap it out for the Sony blue ray player so much better it works so much better...The only issue with it's if you lose the remote for the Blu-Ray player you will not be able to do ANYTHING at all including watch movies... I think there might be an app for your smartphone that you can download in case you lose the remote but if their is I haven't found it yet... other than that issue it's a great product."
