Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great product! I've had this product for a while and it's great! Great interface, build quality, a good remote,good disc read times, in depth info and great picture quality when connected to my 4k TV. The only cons is that there is no dolby vision and there are cheaper players out there (I bought this on sale, I wouldn't pay full price for it).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY!! 4k HDR Atmos/DTS-X from a hard drive I bought Sony x700, then Panasonic, then the LG. NOT ONE OF THESE PLAYERS would pass ATMOS/DTS-X to my receiver when playing movies off my hard drives or PC. Then purchased the Sammy after returning the rest. The samsung M8500 is so good, i am able to play 7.2 channel 4k HDR Atmos/DTS-X from USB, Hard Drive , even through home network. All those other players wont bitstream from external sources. Put simply, Samsung setup menu actually allows users to choose specific audio and video options, unlike sony, lg and panasonic, who believe that "Auto" is a choice in settings. So when netflix and others start offering atmos/DTS-x HDR very soon then sony, lg and panasonic players are useless. Yea, keep dreaming for a firmware update. Back to the Sammy, The remote is typical samsung, so simple and neat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Serves as an entry level to the UHD World As my title states, I personally think this serves as a good entry level product for UHD Bluray. It is feature rich in terms of various streaming apps like Netflix for example and even PLEX can be downloaded through the menu system. Setup features are very straight forward with the ability to fine tune settings like Brightness, contrast, sharpness and so on but only with a 5 step slider, no real gradual step with these settings. There are a few preset values to choose from but comparing them with each other is very minimal. Some films displayed color banding in some scenes which was a slight distraction for those who take notice of issues like that. Only Supports HDR-10 and not Dolby Vision also. With Regards to the sound quality it handles Hi-res audio fine, bass levels don't have as much punch as some other brands and there is only 1 HDMI output so if you have an older AV receiver that doesn't do HDMI pass-through or Dolby True-HD or DTS master, then you wont benefit from the Audio or visual presentation of the device. So if you are new to UHD, not too fussed about in depth menu features to tweak you viewing experience or just a casual Netflix viewer with a few movie or even a decent Bluray back catalogue, then this is definitely worth the purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The jury is out This was an upgrade to our old non-Samsung Bluray player to add 4K HDR capabilities to our Samsung QLED and K750 Soundbar. From the day I connected it into our previously-working configuration, we have been plagued with audio not coming from the soundbar, devices not auto powering on, and the Samsung One Remote does not control the audio. While it is really good when it works, I expected a whole Samsung system to integrate much better than it does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect performance I brought this 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player to get the most out of my 4K "Smart" TV. Got a lot more than expected. The Netflix for one was much better, quicker, less glitches, more UltraHD shows, than on the SmartTV. The sound also synced brilliantly with my existing Sony HTS even though it's Samsung.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Faulty Batch For some reason this unit was faulty, had to return and exchange for a Panasonic 4K Blu Ray Player instead as JB had run out of this model.
