Blu-ray player might be not too popular like we see in few past years, but it is still a good media player for the source or our media entertainment. They still their own marketing even though we already have so many similar products such as Apple TV or Amazon Roku which are cheaper and they are having more functionality with their online streaming services. One of the bad things that they are not able to do is streaming 4K video and that is what Blu-ray is better for this case. Now I am going to show some of my recommendations that might be your best choice.
Panasonic DMP BDT360
For its expensive price tag, the product is working really well on handling any 4K video. The upscaling result is very smooth and I don’t see any jagged images. This one is probably the best one for playing 4K video. But a good one is also having some other stuff that need to be considered. First the remote control is pretty bad with the lacks of button and the second one is the app which is very limited and almost all of them are not interested to see. Well, that is your choice on deciding.
Cambridge Audio CXU
You probably know that Cambridge is really famous with their audio product. You have to know that they also have some good choices on Blu-ray player. They are staying with their good images on good audio quality with this one. The audio quality and video processing are really good. The sounds are clear and powerful. I tried to play some high res video and it could handle it easily without any lag. The only thing that you must think it twice is the price itself which is very expensive.
You need a cheap one to consider, and then Sony UHP-H1 is better than anything that we can find on the market. The player is one of their earliest versions, but it doesn’t mean the player is that bad. One thing that most people love is the audio quality that feels so powerful and having great clearance. It’s sad to see that it’s not supported for 4K video, but that the price that we must have for its cheap price.
Samsung BD H6500
Samsung is coming with their own operating system for this product. Its having many choices for the application and the 4K upscaling is also another thing that makes it greats. The performance might be similar to other one, but their clean interface making it feels so good on selecting the file.
