Questions & Answers

Features we love

Plays 4K 3D and DVDs

Bring your 4K Blu-ray discs to life with this Samsung Blu-ray player and enjoy sharper resolution and crystal clear picture quality. This model also plays 3D Blu-rays, regular Blu-ray and even your much-loved standard DVDs. So, you can make the most of your existing movie collection and experience the stunning clarity of Ultra HD.

HDR technology

High Dynamic Range (HDR) produces dynamic, vivid colours and stunning depth to your 4K picture. This clever technology expands the range of contrast and colours, making blacks darker and whites whiter – so it feels like you’re looking into the real world. So if your TV is HDR certified, you’ll get a breath-taking, lifelike picture for a true cinematic experience.

Smart Capabilities

This Samsung Blu-ray player gives you a world of great entertainment at your fingertips. By simply connecting to your home WiFi network, you have access to a full web browser and Samsung’s Smart Hub. Here you’ll find great Catch Up TV, movies On Demand, games and more. 

4K Upscaling

Turn up the clarity and detail on your regular Blu-ray disks to achieve a stunning, near 4K picture quality. Thanks to clever upscaling technology, gaps in the pixels are filled to give you 4 times more pixels than Full HD. This means you’ll enjoy a more life-like viewing experience and make the best of your existing Blu-ray collection for a more memorable movie night.

4K streaming

When it comes to getting your hands on the latest 4K movies and must-watch box sets, this Samsung Blu-ray player makes it possible. Thanks to built-in WiFi, you can connect to your home network and stream your favourite shows in 4K via Netflix or Amazon – so you can enjoy a box set binge in stunning quality.

Brilliant 4K Blu-Ray Player with great smart features.

I’ve had this 4K Blu-ray player for a couple of days now and watched a couple of 4K movies on it and I have to say the quality is the closest to being in a cinema you are going to get. It has full 4K and HDR support so once paired with a 4K TV with HDR support the quality and sharpness of the image is leaps and bounds ahead of HD. The device also has a built in app store where you can download Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube and many more apps. These services also have 4K videos you can stream to get the full experience out of this player. It’s backwards compatible so will play older Blu-Ray, DVD and CD so can replace you old DVD player. I would highly recommend this device if you have the 4K TV to pair it with, you won’t be disappointed. If you don’t have a 4K TV this is still worth buying especially it isn’t a smart TV as this player will give you access to lots of online content without a smart TV.

Pros: 4K Blu-Ray, Ease to use, Good build quality, Internet Access, Looks good Cons: None

Video review

Excellent quality product

Bought this player to accompany my latest Samsung 4k smart tv and can honestly say I am more than thrilled with the easiness of use and set up to playing discs which quality I have never seen before no regrets in purchasing this device lives up to more than my expectations. Would highly recommend this product is worth the money.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet, Value for money Cons: Complicated, Expensive, Noisy, None, Poor quality

Samsung UBD-K8500 Bluray Player

This is the best player ive had in a long time. It will upscale all the discs you throw at it, with far better quality than anything else i have had in the past. To enjoy the best from uhd sources , make sure you got an uhd tv with HDR built in, because those without will find the picture struggling as the machine is trying to produce a picture in all its glory as its meant to do, and normal uhd tvs will show flashing bright light in certain areas of the picture. Please get one if you want the best picture from all played sources. Trust me, you wont be dissapionted.

Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Quiet Cons: Expensive
