Rated 5 out of 5 by from product has performed as expected product has performed as expected especially with 4k movies. sound and picture quality is great. the only enhancement that could be made would be adding more apps since this unit only comes with netflix and youtube installed. hopefully that will be updated with new firmware in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Philips 4K BRUHD Player I bought my player today and it was very easy to set up and sync with my network. An update was available and was performed without any problems. I watched a 4K movie tonight, (Creed), that came with the player and enjoyed it. The picture and sound was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't be fooled, this UHD player is the Real Deal! I got this player to go in the bedroom. I liked the form factor as I could swap it between the bedroom system and the HT system. i got this player so i could take advantage of the advanced audio ATMOS/DTS:X on almost all UHD discs. in the bedroom I have 5.1.2 and in the HT I have 7.1.4 so, audio is important to me. this player has played every single disc I've put in it, be it 1080p blu or UHD and it has not failed. I also want to say that for those who are like me, who don't have a 4K tv, it's ok, this player will still work on your 1080p tv and it will still give you the advanced audio as long as you set the player to bitstream and turn off the secondary audio. the picture is beautiful and of course, the audio is amazing since it bitstreams. I was going to keep this in the bedroom waiting for "another brand" to release their UHD player for the HT, but, now, having had this for a couple of weeks, I may just save the money and buy another of these players and have one in each of my systems. this thing is legit and it's a game changer for sure. Philips has a winner on their hands! it's quicker than I expected it to be as far as playing discs. it does have a power brick, but, it's manageable and it affords the player to be physically cooler. I watched 5 episodes of Game of Thrones S5 in ATMOS binged and the player was almost cold to the touch. the picture and sound from this player both blew me away! this player is a sleeper, don't miss out on it thinking it's not a true player, this thing will surprise you as it did me. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST 4K player out there. I have owned this 4K player for a couple of weeks now,and continue to be blown away by its features and its picture! There are not many 4K players out there yet,but I looked at a competitor`s offering before deciding on the Philips...and I am so glad I did.I got this device to replace an upscaling to 4K player that would not play 4k blurays.Not only does this device come with a 4K movie AND a high quality HDMI cable,but it also blows away the competition with its fit and finish(dark brushed aluminum)...You can tell just by looking at this device that it is quality-built.Not only does it play the new 4K bluray discs,it also upscales standard bluray and even standard DVD`s to 4K resolution.If you are shopping for a 4K player,this is the one to get!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BDP7501 we bought this unit based on reviews and we are very happy with it the settings are basic and easy to get to the online manual is full of everything you would need know and should be checked out it plays everything we have tossed at it without issues it is quiet and fast loading the remote although a bit heavy works very well just touch one button and it shows your format playing and other information even while playing a movie the lack of apps for us is not an issue for us our tv has all we need we have this set up with a LG658500 works great we have the HDMI ran to ARC and optical to our sound bar great sound good and simple at what it does..thanks Philips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Blu Ray Player I purchased this 4k blu ray player to replace a competitors defective player. This player is easy to use and I have not had the issues similar to the competitors defective player. I recommend this product. Only weakness is the total lack of online apps, but for me I just use one of the various streaming boxes available.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from UHD Player Lacks Amazon Video App A generally very good UHD player that works as advertised. NetFlix is nice but that and YouTube are the only HDR 10 apps on the Player. Not including the other main HDR 10 streaming App Amazon. makes the Philips less competitive against the other UHD Players that include more HDR 10 apps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but not 100% This player was a breeze to set up. It's probably the easiest I've ever encountered. The picture seems to be quite good, but it is not in point clear. It certainly is better than an op convert Blu-ray, but the super sharp is missing One thing I have to say is finally a company has provided a really usable remote. Just the right size, well laid out and easy to use. The only real negative I had to say is that Phillips should really try to provide more apps than simply Netflix and YouTube. I know they don't advertise it as "smart" but they could give us a few more than just the two. Otherwise it is a good, not great, but and certainly your best bang for the buck that's currently on the market. By the way, thank you Phillips for providing the proper cables. That's a rarity!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from On Screen prompts horrible Whoever thought it was a good idea to put white type on a pale blue background. The settings menu is unusable. Please consider a redesign. Otherwise it plays well and was easy to install

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BDP7501 How can I best express my appreciation of this wonderful machine that takes full advantage of my new UHDTV with HDR. Did one update Philips BDP7501 did the rest. It recongnizes 4K HDR immdiately. Presents it beautifully. Honestly thought all this talk about HDR making big difference with 4K. Thought it was all hype. I was gleefully mistaken. Put in Star Trek into darkness. It was like watching a new movie. Colors were spectacular. Sharpness detail incredible. I'm converted. Now finally in love with this machine and my 4K tv. Oh please only thing it could possibly be a better device if it streamed a few more apps please. ( consider vudu , amozan) greatly appreciate if you guys would. But it does what I paid for which is play a UHDBLU RAY DISC to the best quality possible. Oh before I forget been watching my bluray collection over again because this machine makes them look absolutely amazing. Please if on the fence try this machine make sure you perform initial update and then let it do its magic. Mind you I tried another player prior to this found it complicated to get it going. Connect , download initial update ,( just like when you buy a smart tv) connect HDMI2.0 cable. Did I mention they include cable. Press play your done. Thank you Philips for making this easy. Sincerely yours , torrlisand67 PS proud owner.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Dolby Vision This is just like another 4k player. No Dolby Vision only HDR-10. I'll wait for a player with both HDR formats, since DV is a much better format and not static like HDR-10. Save a few dollars by not adding DV and drive away knowledgeable customers.
