Great First UHD Bluray Player
Great player and fairly easy to set up. Although my AV receiver is fairly new, I found that connecting the video HDMI directly to my Samsung 65JS9000 TV worked well. The audio HDMI in connected to my home theater receiver. Pass-through the AVR had occasional "hand shake" issues. That is a problem with the AVR not the 4K player. I am still playing with the settings in the TV, and will check the forum for suggestions. Great product and spectacular video! Would buy again!

So Far, So Good
There aren't a lot of UHD HDR Blu-ray players on the market. With that being said, Samsung's UBD-K8500 has met my high level of expectation. Since I don't have anything to compare the HDR UHD blu-ray content to, I simply will say that I am satisfied with the picture quality and the quick load times.

A little hard to set up w/ non Samsung 4K TV
Set up to get 4K output with a non Samsung, non HDR 4K TV was trial and error and involved turning off the 24 frame setting in video settings. There needs to be better and more detailed information for the settings to be used for non HDR and non Samsung products.

Once the first hurdle was passed, the picture was very nice for 4K, standard blue ray and DVD's.

Audio Issues
This player's video is excellent.

The issue I have is, the player does not output audio to the TV via its HDMI output. The audio only HDMI transfers the audio the my receiver, but without the receiver, I have no audio - nothing comes out of the TV. The TV's audio worked fine with my other BlueRay player. What gives?

Did anyone else have this issue?

Best 4K Blu-Ray Player Out there
Has a ton of features. If you find it at the right price, its a great deal. It played my 4K Blu-Rays with perfect picture. It looked amazing and I finally noticed the difference on my 8700 Samsung after 2 years of ownership. The nice perk is it has all the app features that the 4K Roku requires so its like not only a high level blu ray player, but also like a built in 4K web Viewer.

My only disclaimer is that it did interrupt the first time I played a blu-ray. Like it just paused, I shut it off, and then resumed play normally. Kind of weird out of the box, but it might have needed a firmware update, or it could have maybe been the disk. I didn't have chance to troubleshoot it yet.
