What customers say about "Features"
LG UBK90 4K Ultra HD HDR Dolby Vision Blu-ray Player
  • Netflix and YouTube performance is top notch.
  • If you have Dolby atoms set up, the sound is amazing.
  • A great player for the price, hardly any settings to bother with, hdr10 or dolby vision or dolby atmos will be picked up by the player.
  • I purchased this unit mainly for the Dolby Vision feature. I can honestly say disks with Dolby Vision look better played on this machine verses played on a player without Dolby Vision.
  • Has Dolby Vision which is usually only available in more expensive players.
LG UP970 4K Ultra HD HDR Blu-Ray Player - Black
  • Great 4K viewing from older dvd and flash drive files. Great 4K streaming from Netflix.
  • I was also very pleasantly surprised by the upscaling. I was using a PS4, and the improvement there was also noticeable.
  • The speed from loading is great and having Netflix and You tube as a steaming feature is a nice add.
  • Works as expected. I like the LG product line.I especially like the upscaling feature.
  • It was quite good at 3D playback on the PS4, but the improvement in playback for my rather large 3D bluray library is sometimes astonishing.
  • The one draw back is the only two apps on it is Netflix and YouTube. My old Bluray player and Pandora, Hulu, Amazon and several others that would be nice to have here.

What customers say about "Outputs"
LG UBK90 4K Ultra HD HDR Dolby Vision Blu-ray Player
  • My UBK90 is connected directly to a 2016 LG OLED TV via a 4K approved HDMI cable.
  • Easy set-up. Glad it has the 2 HDMI outs (one for video and one for audio) that lets you use it with older receivers that don't support 2.2.
  • Loads quickly and is quiet. Has 2 HDMI ports and a optical port.
  • Best part is the hdmi 2 audio only output that supports dolby atmos, which I can send directly to my av receiver without having to buy a new receiver.
  • I use the separate HDMI to port for audio out and it made a huge difference in my surround sound movies and music.
LG UP970 4K Ultra HD HDR Blu-Ray Player - Black
  • I also love the Simplelink connection. the DVD player is tied into my entertainment center as well as the television.
  • Connecting all my devices (4k blu Ray, ps4, atari) and the receiver to it was a breeze
  • The other massive bonus for me is that this has dual hdmi out (which all decent uhd players should have).
  • Amazing seamless connectivity to my LG OLeD TV. HDMI audio out works 100% with all discs (unlike Panasonic UB700).
  • Outputs Atmos to my AVR as expected.
