By far the fastest bluray player I've owned. The picture quality is sharp. 3d is Definitely the way to go. I use it with my 55in samsumg 4k curved tv and life is good. I rent 4k bluray from a online Web site. There is no other product that can match this one.

I've been waiting for years for this Blu-Ray player to hit the market so that I could fully exercise my 4K projector. Watched Martian UHD version and it was spectacular! Watched a Blu-Ray and the Mrs. immediately noticed the upscaling. Love the dual HDMI ports on the back of this unit, should I ever need to pump out audio separately. (This is Samsungat its finest - helping out those that may not have the right configuration to handle HDCP 2.2.). I can do without the curvature and the unit can be a heck of a lot smaller, but it's still fantastic. Just hoping that it doesn't start to fault like my previous Sammy did after 18 months.

I couldn't wait for this product to roll off the shelves & I wasn't disappointed in what rolled out !!! It has a very Smart Hub for Internet & the 4K picture with the movie The "Martian " was nothing short of breathtaking !!! The HDR on my UN65JS9000FXZA with NanoCrystals really popped with contrast & depth of colors & the definition along with brightness on the screen is outstanding !!! This product was not cheap by any means but if you have a set with HDR this blows away streaming because a DVD shot with 4K cameras really shines on this device !!! It took me six weeks to find one even @ a local big box electronic store !!! It must be great, you couldn't even find them online , if you did you had to preorder !!! Samsung never disappoints me !!! Now waiting for more 4k DVD'S to be produced !!! If you can find one you must buy it, it loads fast & has user friendly interface !!!
