Review: LG UBK80 4K Ultra HD HDR Blu-ray Player

If you’re on the market for a new Blu-ray player I can highly recommend the LG UBK80. The reason for this is because, it’s a 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range) player with plenty of different uses such as, it can play all Blu-ray movies, standard DVDs, CD’s and you can connect your own USB stick or Android phone to give it that personal touch.

This 4K Blu-ray player from LG offers you the capability to upscale any of your old Blu-rays to give you the best picture on your Ultra HD TV, which means you haven’t got to go through the trouble of getting all new 4K Blu-rays for your new player.

What is also good about this player is that it allows you to play 3D films through it as long as you have a 3D compatible TV, this will make it feel like you are in the centre of the movie and you really don’t miss a thing. You will also be able to play all your favourite DVDs that you’ve got laying around, bringing the past with you to the future. This player also allows you to play CD’s, so, as well as having a movie night, you can have a music day as well.

On the front of the LG UBK80 it has a USB connection, which means you can connect a USB stick into it and display any videos, music or pictures you have onto your TV. If you have a compatible Android phone you can also play your media such as music, videos and pictures through the player on to your TV.

The LG UBK80 also has HDR-10 which means it will give you a bolder contrast and more vibrant colours. This will make you feel part of the movie thanks to just how clear and realistic the picture is.

I personally like the design of the player, a nice slim unit and is black all over so it will happily works with the décor in all homes and not look out of place. I also like how there are controls on the front of the player as well as having a separate control, which again is slim and won’t be in the way. Nobody wants to wait for content so it’s worth mentioning that this product has a quick start up time, using the turbo charge technology, this means you can get straight to the action and haven’t got to wait for the player to load up.

So, if you’re looking for a top end 4K HDR Blu-ray player for your own cinema experience, I wholeheartedly recommend this LG UBK80. Having various playbacks such as the 3D Blu-rays, 4K up-scaling and the USB connection to have your own media on your big screen, makes it so easy to meet your personal needs.
