The LG UBK80 is a top pick for our best 4K blu ray player choices, along with the Sony Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray Player, the Panasonic DP-UB820 Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray Player, and the LG 3D Ultra High Definition 4K Blu-ray Player. It has built-in wi-fi to utilize streaming services, however, the streaming services menu is not included as it is on other smart features technology. Since this ultra HD blu ray disc player can also be used as a DVD disc player, you essentially get two items in one package. What more do you expect in the best blu ray player?

Why We Like It – LG UBK80

The LG UBK80 is an Ultra HD Blu Ray Player that is compatible with DVDs, CDs, and other media. Another device with similar capabilities is detailed in the DVDO quick6 6 x 2 4k ultra HD HDMI switcher review. The LGK80 has Dolby Atmos Digital Audio.

  • Can be used as a DVD Player
  • Has Ultra HD picture quality
  • Has Ethernet input, HDMI cable input, and USB port
  • Does not have smart features
  • Does not have Dolby Vision


The LG Blu Ray has a good quality Dolby Digital audio output, however, it does not have Dolby Vision. On a 4K LG TV, your picture quality will still be clear and sharp though since it is an ultra HD system. As far as UHD Blu Ray players go, this one performs at the top of its class when viewing HDR content. Since you can view both Blu Ray discs and DVD’s, as well as listen to CD’s, it is truly multifunctional. While this versatility in what you can play is great, you can’t watch your movies on the go. We do have several portable DVD player reviews so you can stay entertained both at home and on long road trips.


The sleek black design of this Blu Ray DVD player is great. Its dimensions are 16.9″ x 1.8″ x 8.1″ and it weighs just over four pounds. The player includes a six-foot HDMI cable so that you can use it right out of the box. It also includes a remote with batteries to get you started. The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc provides the ultimate in audio and video quality, with state-of-the-art audio. Overall, the design is quite appealing and will go with any pre-existing entertainment set.


Since the Blu Ray is also DVD and CD compatible, the value on this electronic device is quite good. While it does not have Dolby Vision, it does have HDR10 and Ultra HD capabilities. An alternative blu ray player with HDR compatibility is described in the LG up870 definition compatibility upconvert review. As a multi-format disc player, the LG UBK80 is what you want if you have a variety of discs at home. The audio output is stellar, with Dolby Digital sound. LG provides you everything you need to get started, including the remote batteries. The only thing not included are the movies themselves.

LG UBK80 Wrap Up

The LG UBK80 is a nice multi-disc player. While it is sold as an ultra high definition Blu Ray player, you can also watch DVDs and listen to CDs on it. The player does not have streaming services included, but it does have wifi so that you can stream your favorite services. It also does not have Dolby Vision but does utilize UHD and HDR10.
