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.
Sony UBP-X700 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player - Black
  • Standard dvds do appear to be better quality although the player I replaced was very old!
  • Upscaling feature for ordinary DVD'S is brilliant. Makes all DVD'S appear in 4k ultra picture.
  • Plays 4k Blu Rays. In 4k definition. Preferably on a 4k telly.
  • Upscaling also seems to be pretty impressive on my set and do not have a premium model.
  • I purchased some UHD Discs and the picture so vivid and striking with the few I have played thus far.

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.
Sony UBP-X700 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player - Black
  • I connect the player to a soundbar via the HDMI 2 audio output.
  • It also had an HDMI audio out so you can plug in your sound-bar if you have one.
  • Great player so far, very quiet, very simple to set up, comes with 2 hdmi outs, perfect if your av receiver cannot pass Dolby Vision.
  • Two hdmi cables, audio to amp, video directly to tv, and it just worked.
  • Thank goodness for the separate audio-only hdmi out. My UK hi-fi amp/receiver could not handle both standard HD and 4K video signals tho' claiming 4K compatibility.
