We spent 21 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. Now that 4K is becoming the standard for our media consumption, it's smarter than ever to invest in a high quality ultra HD Blu-ray player. Many of the models out there can also upscale your old Blu-rays and DVDs to perform at near-4K resolution, so you can keep your entire library intact while enjoying the best video and audio quality that the market has to offer, all for surprisingly low prices.

Editor's Notes

November 19, 2018: There are a lot of Blu-ray players on the market claiming to be 4K players, when what they mean is that they can upscale 1080 Blu-ray discs to 4K, without actually offering support for 4K Blu-ray discs. In weeding those out, we found some great offerings from Samsung and Sony in particular.
