    "Solid construction and the 3D performance, however, there are no options to display HDR output type."

Did you know?

Did you know that Blu-ray discs show high-definition movies up to full HD 1080P resolution, while a DVD shows standard definition movies up to 480P?

Interestingly, the acceptance for the Blu-ray disc format was not easy, as there were other competitors. Blu-ray and HD DVD are two formats, which competed to come as the next high-definition DVD format to replace the standard DVD. As technology continues to rise, the demand for Blu-ray players with unique features is on the rise too. Most Blu-ray players nowadays can access audio and video content streamed from the internet. Some allow Screen Mirroring which allows audio and video sharing content from a compatible smartphone and tablet. Blu-ray player with Wi-Fi, Blu-ray player with Netflix, Blu-ray player with apps is some of the features people are looking for. While other people look for the best Blu-ray player for music to flaunt their unique music taste. Another fun part of owning a Blu-ray player is you can still play your DVDs on it so you won't have to throw away your DVD collection. It also comes with a multi-channel surround sound and connection ports for extra external memory.

    "There are too many issues with the player to recommend very highly. The bluray part works well enough, but there are a host of problems with the other features. Connectivity isn't always assured and it doesn't upscale DVDs very well. There is also the strange design choice of not having an on/off light, which isn't a huge deal-breaker but does show a lack of attention to detail. "
