LG UP970 review


It's decent, but this LG Blu-ray player is up against some tough competition

Rich colours ; Fine detail ; Solid upscaling ; Good dark detail

LG's UP970 Ultra HD Blu-ray disc player does exactly what it's supposed to do--that is, reliably play back Ultra HD Blu-ray (and other) discs. It has no egregious flaws, it's quick-loading, and it's super-simple to set up and use. However, it does lack...

Great product, great service


All round great quality for a price that isn't exactly ludicrous. Works on everything from 4K discs to plain old DVDs whilst upscaling them beautifully.
