Samsung UBD-K8500 Manual – About 10 years later, the original 4k Blu-ray player is finally accessible and it is also a Samsung. At only $250, $315 au or £200 in the UK, the UBD-K8500 costs much less than its predecessor, but its configuration is facing a much less certain future. In 2006, the huge opponent of Blu-Ray was another dish setting, called HD DVD. Today there is a whole network of videos on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and YouTube, to give some examples.
Indeed, the 4k Blu-ray offers four times more lenses than the standard HD Blu-ray plates we’ve seen so far: 3 820 x 2 160 pixels for 4k lenses versus 1 920 x 1 080 for classic Blu-ray discs. However, the best update on new drives and new plates is the high power range (HDR), which is suitable for transmitting the differences and the preferable shadows we have seen from any video source so far.
Samsung UBD-K8500 Manual – After testing the K8500 with some underlying 4k Blu-ray circles, which all offer HDR, one thing is clear. In case you need to separate the biggest advantage of this drive, you need a highly qualified HDR TV. From the standpoint of standard 4k non-HDR TVs, the circles we have tried do not offer any generous image quality changes on standard Blu-ray 1080p plates.
However, few odd HDR TVs are made equivalent. Our investigation sessions with some of the best accessible sets-the LG 65EF9500 and the Samsung UN65JS9500, both extremely costly-demonstrated the full effect and authenticity of HDR, leaving the standard Blu-ray in the residue and we Abandoning.
Samsung UBD-K8500 Manual – Again, less expensive HDR TVs, such as the mid-tier horde models, which are not very recent, will probably not look very light. We have not yet been able to test such sets with the 4k Blu-ray, but our tests passed on models, for example, the Samsung JS8500, one of the current cheapest HDR TVs, are not very effective. On the other hand, with perhaps a few plates and more modern HDR-Fit TVs, there will be a generous change. We have to wait to test the 2016 performance of HDR TVs to know without a doubt.
The result is that 4k Blu-ray discs and readers like the UBD-K8500 are now much more specialized than you think. If you paid thousands for the outstanding among the other available HDR TVs, buying a drive such as the UBD-K8500 is extremely interesting. In spite of some problems encountered in these early circles and how you need to physically connect to a specific image setting, it will in any case transmit the best quality of video at home.
The UBD-K8500 is decent looking for a circular reader, with a complete brushed contour and a bent contour that will work well with any audiovisual infrastructure-and especially, of course, with the bent TVs that Samsung asks for Do.
Samsung UBD-K8500 Manual – The controls on the drive itself are negligible and, surprisingly for a high-end unit, there is no window. In one move, the USB port on the front panel is secured by a low-angle elastic coupling.
The small remote control takes care of the business and the catches are mostly well chosen, but we were disillusioned in the absence of fast forward and rewind. To do this, you need to press the front and back keys long and it’s all but difficult to jump by chance rather than fast forward.
The back panel is rare, but we value the dual HDMI output. If your beneficiary does not reinforce the 4k signals, attach it to the second HDMI port to get sound while the main sends the video to your 4k TV. Of course, the basic video output reinforces the HDMI 2.0 a standard for HDR and requires an HDCP 2.2 combination with secure duplicate content (which roughly matches everything you need to look at).
This USB front port can read documents from USB sticks and hard disks, for example this 4k duplicate of “TimeScapes ” purchased in 2012. The main associations are the computerized optical sound and the wired Ethernet port. Like most current video players, the Samsung requires simple video output. It’s good; They would be useless here at any rate.
Moreover, for the record, the Samsung UBD-K8500 is also suitable for most of the old circles of your home: it reads DVDs, regular Blu-rays and even CDs (you call them back?). Unfortunately, your gigantic gathering of SACD and DVD-Audio plates is not respected.
