LG UP970


LG UP970 review: This 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc player delivers an excellent performance and Dolby Vision support at a bargain price

Excellent picture performance ; Dolby Vision support ; Good 4K upscaling ; Simple to set up

Won't support Sony Dolby Vision TVs ; No HDR10+ support ; Limited smart platform ; No DNLA support

The LG UP970 is a decent player that, while somewhat limited on the feature front, delivers an excellent playback performance at a cracking price. It’s also by far the cheapest way of getting Dolby Vision support.

LG UP970 review


It's decent, but this LG Blu-ray player is up against some tough competition

Rich colours ; Fine detail ; Solid upscaling ; Good dark detail

Sound lacks dynamics and bass ; Short-changed on streaming services

Good pictures, but the LG's sound doesn't scale the same heights

LG UP970 Ultra HD Blu-ray Player Review


LG's UP970 is the cheapest way to get a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player that supports Dolby Vision but how does it perform in all other respects?

Excellent playback ; Good 4K upscaling ; Dolby Vision support ; Twin HDMI outputs ; Easy to setup ; Price

Only two streaming apps ; Limited set up options ; No DNLA support ; No display ; No CEC support

The answer to that question really depends on whether or not you want Dolby Vision support. If you do then the LG UP970 is definitely worth considering because it's the cheapest way of getting Dolby Vision disc playback. However if you're not...

Is LG's 4K BD player the hare to Samsung's tortoise?


LG'S UP970 is the company's first 4K Blu-ray player which will come a full 12 months after the competition. But what does it offer the others can't?

LG UP970 Ultra HD Blu-ray Player Reviewed


Adrienne Maxwell reviews the UP970, LG's first entry in the Ultra HD Blu-ray category. The UP970 is the first sub-$300 player scheduled to support Dolby Vision HDR, but it lacks other features found in similarly priced players.

LG's UP970 Ultra HD Blu-ray disc player does exactly what it's supposed to do--that is, reliably play back Ultra HD Blu-ray (and other) discs. It has no egregious flaws, it's quick-loading, and it's super-simple to set up and use. However, it does lack...
