Huh?You do realize that Samsung 8500/9500 can't even play 3D BD's when making that recommendation.
2017 ubd-m8500 and ubd-m9500, not the k8500.Huh?
I never tried it, as I don't have a 3D capable display, but Samsung claims otherwise for the UBD-K8500.
The Philips BDP7501 also claims to be able to play 3D BD. I didn't verify that one, either.

I recently contacted Denon Canada and asked if there were any plans to release a 4K UHD universal Blue-ray player and they replied that they did not see one on the roadmap. This is a great disappointment for me after just having purchased the new AVR X8500H. Without a modern and compatible Denon disc player (preferably audiophile grade) The Denon Link is a feature that ought not be boasted. In fact, I find it useless.I currently have the Denon UDT-1713 BluRay player. I've been waiting for them to release a 4K player, so I check their site for any news every once in a while. I noticed that they took off all mentions of players entirely off the US site. What gives? Is Denon not going to make a 4K player or something?
I think I read that the UB9000 has the tone mapping for projectors, whereas the UB820 doesn't? So, there is that too.And other than build quality, I'm not really sure what it offers over the UB820 except Analog outs.

Regarding the build quality. I admire this device every time I load a disk. Initially I debated the cost over those two features that I "don't need", but wow... after looking at it in my rack, I don't regret getting it over the 820 at all!
Both the UB820 and the UB420 have the same tone mapping features as the UB9000
