      Comments about Samsung True 4K Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

      The remote buttons are too close and you will hit home when you try to press up. It lags a little when going through letters/numbers to type in. Otherwise, overall great player. Such an awesome picture quality and ease of use.

            Flawless 4k Bluray but App design is atrocious at best

            By WinCT

            from Undisclosed

            Pros

            • Realistic color

            Cons

            • cannot customize commonly used apps
            • poorly designed remote control

            Best Uses

              Comments about Samsung True 4K Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

              Hooked up easily in about 10 minutes and thoroughly enjoyed the brilliant Pacific Rim in HRD! But - the apps are pitiful and "My Apps" is a lie. You cannot customize your frequently used apps like Netflix, Vudu, or Amazon Prime. It should be called "Samsung Rarely Used Downloaded Apps" since that's all you can customize. A jokel Took 30 minutes with a non-English speaking person from southeast Asia before I got to a supervisor that spoke flawless English and confirmed my fears - bad design. So, if you need a unit immediately, I'd recommend for 4k UHD blu ray playing only. The remote is also way too small and quirky in design

              By Lariat

              from Las Vegas, NV, USA

              Pros

              • 4k picture
              • Bright display
              • Realistic color

              Cons

              • apps could be easier to work with
              • tiny remote control

              Best Uses

                Comments about Samsung True 4K Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

                The player displays an awesome 4K picture with Netflix and Amazon and the 4K BluRay was also crystal clear and lived up to my expectations. The remote is a little difficult for a person with big fingers like myself. The apps could have been made easier to move around but I can overlook both for the picture.

                  Comments about Samsung True 4K Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

                  I got a defective model that was exchanged for a working one. Once bitten twice shy. My confidence level with it's quality is lacking. For the high price of the player plus the 1st not working, I should have bought extended warranty.

                      The player is great so far. The only problem I had was registering. I had to look up model number for it to accept the serial number then it would not allow me to put correct purchase date of January 10, 2017 because it only went up to 2016. So in order to be able to register I put December 31, 2016. Registration site needs improvement.

                        This is my first 4k blu-ray player and I'm happy with the results of the performance. 4k makes the whole movie great, I can watch one movie all day and not be disappointed because of the picture quality. Just to wrap things up I'm satisfied with my purchase.

                          Comments about Samsung True 4K Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

                          Purchased the UBD-K8500 at the end of 2016. Easy setup right out of the box using the default settings for viewers that do not like to mess with all of the detail settings. l like to get the best possible picture quality so I wanted to calibrate the picture settings between my new UBD-K8500 HDR 4K with my Samsung JS9000 SUHD TV. There is no UHD configuration disk that I know of at this time so I did the following steps below if you are interested. First I connected the main HDMI output directly to the TV HDMI 1 and the 2nd Audio HDMI directly to my AV receiver. All my other devices go through my A/V receiver first and one HDMI output to the TV HDMI 4 input. I started out with the Disney WOW Blu-Ray as the starting point for the calibration between the Samsung UBD-K8500 and Samsung JS9000 SUHD. Once I was happly with those settings I then did a few fine tune adjustments when watching sections of UHD movies (The Revenant & Suicide Squad) The biggest change was setting Smart LED "On-Standard" to reduce LED light clouding on dark scenes. I ended up with these settings and used the default setting if not listed below. All settings were done in a pitch dark room for movie watching. Samsung UBD-K8500 Settings: TV Aspect Ratio: 16:9 Original BD Wise: On Resolution: BD Wise HDMI Color Format: Auto HDMI Deep Color: Auto Samdung JS9000 Settings : First thing - change the "HDMI UHD Color" to ON for the HDMI input you are using. The TV will power off and on. Also make sure BD Wise is turned "ON" in the General settings. Picture Mode: Movie Blacklight: 18 Contrast: 100 Brightness: 45 - 47 Sharpness: 0 Dynamic Contrast: Off Black Tone: Off Color Space: Auto White Balance: 2 Point Auto Motion Plus: Standard Smart LED: Standard Cinema Black; On (I liked this setting because the black bars at top and bottom were nice and black)
