Panasonic DMP-UB900 Ultra HD Blu-ray player reviewed @ WHAT HI-FI

It doesn’t look like you can actually buy this £600 Ultra HD Blu-ray player, which is disappointing because it certainly was loved by the reviewer at WHAT HI-FI. Naturally you will need a 4K TV to make it useful, and there aren’t many titles out yet, so I guess there’s plenty of time for it to become available.


The moment has finally come, and it is with great excitement that we confirm the UHD Blu-ray is a real thing. We know that because we’re fondling the discs right now. We’re also fondling the machine that can spin them: the Panasonic DMP-UB900 – the first dedicated UHD Blu-ray player.

What is a UHD Blu-ray player? Pretty much as it sounds: a Blu-ray player, but one that spins 4K discs. That means it puts out a picture with a maximum resolution of 3840×2160, and in high dynamic range (HDR) to boot.

    Not to mention not all of the early UHD blu-ray releases are even true 4k. I guess I am glad that there are enough people with more disposable income than productive uses for that income to help birth these technologies into the mainstream, but this is clearly a situation where waiting for the second generation players is the smart play.
