Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Some surprising benefits

Charles2LGs 7/16/2018

I was shopping non-seriously for a 4K player because I understood that I was not getting the kind of picture my LG OLED65E6P was capable of watching 4K steaming content mostly on VUDU. I was always leaning to LG and when I saw a UP970 on sale I checked to make sure the firmware update had come out and then I grabbed it. I only have a few 4K blurays but the picture quality is markedly better than watching the same movie in 4K streaming. I was also very pleasantly surprised by the upscaling. I was using a PS4 and the improvement there was also noticeable. My two biggest surprises cams with 3D and the 2 streaming apps Netflix and YouTube. The LG OLED65E6P was touted as the best 3D capable TV. It was quite good at 3D playback on the PS4 but the improvement in playback for my rather large 3D bluray library is sometimes astonishing. Finally the 4K streaming playback via the YouTube app on the UP970 is better than on the YouTube app that is on the OLED65E6P. Maybe that needs a firmware update. All in all a real step up from playback through my PS4 and a great value.

Quite a disappointed blu-ray player

Alan Tam 6/21/2018

Yes this is one of the rare blu-ray players supporting the shinny new features like Dolby Vision and Atmos but it cant even do the basics right. The volume keys dont work with your own OLED TV. HDMI-CEC/SimpLink doesnt always work and cant be configured. Fast-forward and backward are too fine-grained need at least 4 arrows to get decent speed. Support always gives canned replies and never resolve/acknowledge these issues.

Works as expected. I like the LG product line.I especially like the upscaling feature. There arent a lot of videos in 4K yet. with this quality of image I can wait. I also love the Simplelink connection. the DVD player is tied into my entertainment center as well as the television. When I turn on the DVD player everything that is needed turns itself on I understand that this only is available between LG devices. We have had consistent superior performance from their products.

Bought this 7 months ago watched many movies including DVD Blu-ray 3D and 4K and never see any problem. Before buying this I was reading reviews complaining about noice disk stuck video skipping and tested all of them after buying this product but didnt see any such problems. Played movies with USB CONNECTIONS as well. I think it can be even better if we can add additional apps to stream movies/shows since it has limited apps. Hope this help.

OK but...

Batfellow 5/17/2018

I purchased this to go with my LG 55 OLED HDTV and I wanted to be able to play HDR discs with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. Player seems to do that and most discs play fine and picture is clear and full of color. Nice minimalist style outside but limited streaming apps inside however. Also you cannot disable Simplink feature on the player itself if you dont want the player to come on when you turn on your Simplink enabled TV. Plus some Blu ray discs with HDR causes the player to make a loud whirring noise. I researched the internet and many people have the same problem. My solution was to open the player and put some foam tape under the disc drive because the lack of insulation causes the dive to vibrate and make noise as it reads and spins at a high rate of speed. After my repair player was a lot quieter. I think LG needs to rethink how the drive is mounted and come up with a better solution to stop noise and how to disable Simplink on the player itself. Anyway other than that player seems to work fine.

Cant select between HDR10 and Dolby Vision

Sandor83 4/26/2018

After waiting for a long time for the update to play Dolby vision after finally installing it i was able to play the movie Dark tower in Dolby vision with my LG 60UH7700 which is ready to play both HDR10 and Dolby Vision. What i noticed after the update which was really annoying to me is the fact that your not able to switch between the 2 formats. Which the new Phillips BDP-7502/F7 allows me to do. i would only recommend this BD player if they can only fix this feature with an update

Golferdad50 3/29/2018

As of this writing its only one of three players that has Dolby Vision. The other player is around the same price and the other one is more than double. For the price of this unit you cannot beat the feature set. I did hear of noisy drives with earlier builds. I purchased a Dec17 build and so far it is whisper quiet when playing 4K UHD Blu-rays. It is simple to set up and you will be up and running in no time. I recently watched Jumanji 4K UHD on my Dolby Vision capable TV through this player. Holy smokes it looked spectacular. It is also capable of passing Dolby Atmos if your system is so equipped. Excellent player and I am extremely satisfied.

Ive had this since April 2017 and it does as advertised. Works great with my LG 55UH8500 TX-NR656 w/Klipsch speakers. However when playing 4K discs it has a very noticeable humming/buzzing sound that goes away after about 15 minutes and sometimes it seems incapable of playing a complete movie I had to complete Steven Kings It in my XBox One S. Regular Blu Rays and 3D discs play flawlessly though. And as Im writing this review Dunkirk 4K disc is now playing flawlessly 25 minutes into the movie. Overall though Im satisfied with it.

Noisy and missing Dolbly Vision

JimHSLC 1/12/2018

I bought this player for one reason to take full advantage of my LG OLED C7 TVs amazing display quality. I purchased this item in October and saved it for Christmas. That purchase was made with the expectation of Dolby Vision being available upon opening at Christmas. After all LG had released a firmware update in August with Dobly Vision enabled. Sadly LG has since pulled that update and I am left with a player that often rumbles loudly while playing no Dolby Vision and no ability to return a product purchased three months prior. That with with very little comment from LG will definitely influence future purchases.

The Player is very basic. It does play UHD disc as promise and the WiFi will let you stream Netflix and a few other services. It wont let you control it thru an app. The remote is sluggish and takes a takes a bit to respond. Unless the buyer doesnt have any other means to access streaming services there is no point to on paying for the WiFi feature.

Exceptional Picture More Streaming Needed

Longhorn Neil 12/14/2017

Having done extensive research and review reading I chose this due to the availability of HDR10 and the addition of Dolby Vision future software/firmware update in 2018 for a complete 4K output set of options. The menu is very simple and easy to use. Choosing display and sound output is easy to find but must be changed manually vs. the player knowing the optimal output. I would like more streaming options as the only two are Netflix and YouTube. I dont have enough 4K HDMI inputs to accommodate multiple streaming boxes and having one solution for DVD and streaming would be nice. I can see this being solved in a future software update. For the price paid this is an outstanding 4K player and knowing Dolby Vision will be added makes it a no brainer and cheaper option than the higher priced options available.
