My question is this, I recently got Washer/Dryer from Sears and had huge delivery nightmare. Anyway, they gave me a lot of points such that I can get a new Samsung 4K new BluRay player for about $50 instead of paying full $350, but I am debating about if I should. Here is why. I have a Blu Ray Samsung 3D player I have had for years, my wife is the only one using it for her workout videos. When I got the 9600 I went and bought a couple 3D BluRay disks to try the current player with the OLED TV, and get an error that the player can't play those disks because I guess I have too old of a blu ray player.
So this would be a replacement for that. But having known that I have never used the current old Blu Ray player for maybe 20 hours total of playing over the years that maybe I just keep it for my wife to use for her workouts and forget about needing one that does 4K UHD with HDR.
What do you guys think, is it a must have? Should I use the points for something else? I also still have an ONKYO 704? Which doesn't do 4K and could upgrade there. But the only thing now going through it to the TV is the old Blu Ray player and my Apple TV 4. I use the LG apps for NFLX and Hulu and Amazon which have their own 4K content (Well not Hulu)
Most members here buy these high end tv's to match their high end components. To get the best picture and sound as possible. Some use them for HDTV/movies, some for gaming/HTPC. If you don't watch Bluray movies/UHD 4K movies, you are defenitely aren't seeing the tv in all it's glory (potential). Yea streaming is great but it's not native content.
Only you can answer if it's a must have. Isn't that why we buy 4K tvs to watch native 4K content whenever possible? If you don't and don't get a new UHD player , there is no need to upgrade to ub model. You will get HDR with streaming.
