4K Blu-ray support at a reasonable price

Key features:
  • Ultra HD Blu-ray support
  • HDR support
  • Dual HDMI outputs

Right now the Samsung UBD-K8500 is your best bet if you want a relatively affordable Ultra HD Blu-ray player. At around £400 it’s not a pocket-money buy, but does get you right up to date with support for both 4K Blu-rays and HDR.

Image quality is slightly better in the more expensive arch-rival Panasonic DMP-UB900, but that machine costs up to 50 per cent more.

The Samsung UBD-K8500 doesn’t have any fancy displays to make it seem like an ultra-expensive player, but it does have a fancy curved bottom that helps to detract from the ‘boring black box’ effect a little.

At the time of review the Samsung UBD-K8500 was available for £429
