Unfortunately I haven't cracked open the box. I am choosing to wait til my new 4K TV arrives and since it (TV ) is not a FALD set or OLED I am waiting to do black level & colour tests. Edge lit LED is hard to swallow coming from Pioneer Kuro Plasma.

I will screen grab your username and if I decide to open it I will let you know.

BTW I believe the original What HI Fi review of the Panny had loading times listed.

Fascinating.
For the life of me, I can't figure out why Philips and Samsung (I had *3* Samsung UHD players with various serious problems) don't seem to be able to design and build reliable UHD players.
I too am waiting for the Panasonic...and if it has similar problems (early feedback is it doesn't), I will be seriously bummed (and out of UHD options).

You and me both. After waiting waiting so long and reading all the positive reviews I figured we can't go wrong with the Panasonic.

NOTICE OF CANADIAN AVAILABILITY.

According to a local dealer the units shipped to them from Panasonic around July 25.


Here is a link to Panasonic Dealer Network.

http://help.panasonic.ca/english/sup...or/default.asp

It is available from Panasonic English Shopping but I am not sure if they ship out if Canada. Search Panasonic English Shopping Canada.

The unit is listed on sales for $799 CAD.

I bought mine from Audio Video 2001 in my local neighbourhood for $799.

Hope this helps guys. Let me know if I can help.

Warden

Regular UHD Blu-ray is 10 bit, 4:2:0. Most of the time it's downconverted to 8 bit, 4:2:0 on 1080p displays.

Just placed the order for the player and will have it within two days it says. Will be replacing my Samsung UHD player. Will try to post some comparisons between the two when I'm done with setup and testing.

Many are very interested in your impressions, especially how it compares with the Samsung.

I'd like to know if anyone has tested where you set it it output 2160p rec 709 off a UHD disc vs 2160p 2020. Basically stripping the WCG and HDR.

Just wondering what the output looks like (4k/24 ycbcr 422 8 bit for example).

So I got the player today already which is nice.
Did not have the time to do many tests as I had to leave for work but, few initial remarks;
Setup was very easy. I had to update firmware which took couple of minutes. Default settings are pretty much spot on.
I'm happy to say The Martian UHD disc now working without color banding. I could not get it to work on Samsung! I didn't even enable UHD Deep Color on my LG display. Once I did though, HDR kicked in. One note about the banding; there's still minor banding on couple of scenes but it's the same banding visible on regular 1080p blu disc.
One thing I noticed is that the player recognised the display (LG 55ef9500) as a 8-bit display and only give me option of 4:2:0 setting when doing initial setup. Should I still change it to 4:4:4?
PQ otherwise is nice. Samsung definitely has some kind of noise reduction while Panasonic doesn't. I also noticed Samsung had a red push on UHD and possibly regular blus as well.
As for 3D; I could only get 1080p from the player. It wouldn't upscale. Maybe a setting can fix this?

Didn't have the time to test AQ but noticed my receiver droped the sound sometimes if I skipped too many chapters. No such issues with Samsung.
I really like the Panasonic menus compared to Samsung's. The remote is much bigger but I like all the extra stuff.

Anyway that's all for now. Will test more later.

Picked up my player too today. What a relief after all the hassles with the Samsung.
UHD HDR now looks properly good on the Sony 4K projector. No more banding either. Love the tons of menu options and that I can see exactly what is being in/output. Been testing for about 8 hours straight with all of my UHD movies they all look stunning finally as they should, eyes got real tired of the HDR highlights but still can't get enough just looks so good. Easily exceeded my expectations. Well worth the $$$. Not to mention it came with 2 UHD titles and an 18Gps HDMI cable, add that up and you are looking at real good value for a THX certified premium machine. Love the remote too. And a big plus is that now I can adjust picture settings in Netflix which the Sammy couldn't do. Now seeing how it should have been from the start I don't see how I could live with the Samsung. No more red push either Mad Max now looks as it should stunning.
Will also soon test the high res audio with my STAX electrostatic headphones they will definitely tell the truth about its audio capabilities.

So far very very happy, can only recommend as essential if you can afford it.

Still waiting for mine. So while waiting I picked up the Philips. With the Philips even when using an 18gbs cable at 4:4:4 i get audio drop outs. At 4:2:0 no drop outs, and it wont play Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 3D blurry, locks up at the main screen. I only got it to play with while waiting for the Panasonic. So back to Amazon it goes

I'm beginning to think the ability to force/select 4:2:0 instead of 4:4:4 (which could not be done with the Samsung) may be the saving grace of this player as there is way too much variability between HDMI cables. Of course, it doesn't hurt that there seems to be no "default" DNR either.

Anyone else had sound drop-out while skipping chapters? I use both HDMI ports and now thinking if I need to replace my HDMI audio cable. It's high speed though.
Did not experience any such issues with Samsung despite the same setup..

Can you confirm that it does both Netflix and Amazon in 4K? I've seen conflicting information on this.

And can you confirm whether one or both Netflix and Amazon stream in HDR along with the 4K?

If the answer is yes to both, this may be the player I will get, despite the added cost.

Any other 4K compatible apps? Ultraflix, for example?

I have had zero problems with the Philips. My settings are on auto so I don't push any particular processing.

I'll answer my own question here. I went to Panasonic's website, and Amazon Video is nowhere to be found. To be more certain, I did an online chat there as well, and the rep confirmed no Amazon Video (of any type, let alone 4k!), and had no information on whether or not it would be a possible addition down the road.

So, if one wants a UHD BD player, that can also handle Amazon and Netflix in 4k/UHD/HDR, the only option that comes close is the Samsung (which I understand does not yet have Netflix in HDR, but which may be coming). For various reasons, I am not interested in the Samsung (you can read through it's thread to get some idea about this).

And as I've documented elsewhere, the Roku 4 gives me a red/magenta push for 4k content from Netflix and Amazon, at least through my Marantz SR7010 and JVC RS400 projector.

So unless you have a 4K/HDR TV with built-in apps, there isn't a current way to get 4K/HDR content from both Amazon and Netflix, in a UHD/BD Player. Hopefully things will change, or Roku 4 will get theirs fixed (or come out with a newer and better model).

As I told the Panasonic guy, I'm just not willing to pay double what other UHD BD Players cost for their player, and still not have Amazon at all, let alone 4K/HDR Amazon!

So the only apps are Neflix and I was told by another member the other day, VUDU?

The only 4K/HD Apps they specifically support and provide are Netflix and YouTube.

I have been unable to find a listing of what other Apps this device will support, but if it does have Vudu, it is apparently not 4K (and I'm not certain, but I think the Vudu app that does support 4k is Dolby Vision only, but again, I'm not 100% sure about that).

And as if there weren't already some confusion here, I just found this review, dated June 3, 2016, which specifically states that it does include the Amazon Video App, implying that it is 4K, although not explicitly stated:


Panasonic DMP-UB900 review: Ultra-HD Blu-ray master class


Quote:
We've mentioned Netflix already and with Amazon Video also offered, the UB900 can be your one-stop shop for 4K content...But let's not ignore that Amazon and Netflix probably carry more Ultra HD content than you have on physical media right now (and for less money). Currently there's no support for HDR on Netflix, but that will change.
So at this point, I have no idea what this player's capabilities are in terms of 4k, HDR, Amazon, Netflix, etc. And will there be differences in the yet to be released US version in September, vs what is available currently elsewhere? Who knows. Apparently not even Panasonic!!

I forgot about YouTube. I've read other posts indicating Panasonc does not support 4K VUDU in DV. Someone contacted CS at VUDU and they indicated it was not going to be implemented for LG Oleds anytime soon; just the reg. VUDU app. Hopefully this info is accurate. When I owned the Samsung for a month, the sound from the VUDU app was better when it was being fed to my AVR from the Samsung UHD player than from the LG OLED.

At least my player has Netflix and Amazon app. Both will play 4k.
But you only get those apps if your country has Amazon and Netflix.

Not every country get Netflix and Amazon.

I don't think HDR is supported (yet?).

I'm not home so I can't check but I'm 99.99% sure that the UK UB900 support 4K Amazon as well as Netflix and Youtube. I only have Prime so it was an important factor to me. I don't think it supports HDR but 4K/UHD with Prime is almost 100% guaranteed.

I'll certainly double check in a few days when I'm back home.

Thanks for the reply. What country are you (or in what country did you buy your player)?
