Good to see "near-4K quality" DVD player pricing drop below $100, but I still consider it a bit early to upgrade. For those with upscaling 4k smart TVs, most if not all of the features already exist, sub $50 Blu-ray players should be MORE than good enough.
What I failed to realize, is that my Onkyo receiver is only 1080p output.
My Blurays did not look as good as they used to and my Bluray player was only 1080p. I bought this player (used off eBay for $49) and connected directly to my TV. The upscaling is great and the load time of Avatar was like - 10 seconds. This is way faster than my old Bluray player and it upscales to 4K with ease. My audio is now all over optical toslink and to my ears - I don't hear much of a difference.
4K TVs run at different resolutions based on the output of the source device. It does not automatically upscale to 4K. For instance - Netflix shows that are not 4K are shown in 1080p resolution on the TV.
Also - the link you posted is $200 for a refurb. At that price, you're better off picking up a PS4 Pro or Xbox S for the best bang-for-your-buck 4K UHD Bluray player with upscaling, gaming, and media device.
Totally misleading title. This is a 4K UPSCALING player. It just upscales 1080p to "near 4K" (whatever that means)
It is NOT a 4K player!!
It is just a regular cheapo Blu-ray player with upscaling tech built in. Since every 4K TV already has this capability, I don't see why you would want to duplicate (and pay extra for) this functionality in the Blu-ray player.
I beg the differ - as stated earlier - my Onkyo receiver has 1080p output. The content was grainy. I bought this player and it is night/day difference in quality when connected directly to the TV over my old Bluray player.
