Region-Free Samsung UBD-K8500 Blu-ray Player
The Region-Free Samsung UBD-K8500 is a very special unit. After all, it's the world's first true UHD (Ultra-HD) Blu-ray Player to hit the market. Designed to pair perfectly with your 4k Ultra-HD TV, it delivers consistent, beautiful, and true 4k resolution for the absolute ultimate home theater experience. Watching 4k movie titles on this player is seemingly unreal, and while you may have a hard time imagining that the resolution of 1080p Blu-ray couldn't get any better, it has. The Region-Free Samsung UBD-k8500 is proof.
Not only does 4k Ultra-HD offer more pixels (double the pixels of 1080p), it offers better pixels. This means deeper, richer and more vibrant colors for your viewing pleasure. Blacks that are more black, whites that appear more white, and a bigger spectrum of everything in-between which provides an end result of far more detail than 1080p could ever produce. If you're seeking out the most life-like cinema experience yet, you'll need to get your hands on this player - but to make it work, you'll also need some 4k Blu-ray titles and a 4k Ultra-HD TV.
While the 4k UHD playback of this unit is definitely a huge factor in it's awesomeness, the UBD-K8500 has plenty of other features to be cherished. Samsung has taken a leading edge as one of the top manufacturers in the Blu-ray market and you're going to get everything you'd expect from this model; and then some extra.
Straight out of the box, this player does everything; and when we say everything, we mean it. From the most basic features to the most complex, the Samsung UBD-K8500 is ready to perform. It's equipped with the most flexible and convenient features out there to ensure a complete movie, media and entertainment experience.
Featuring built in Dual-band Wi-Fi, there's no need for a wired internet connection with this player. However, there is a LAN port for an ethernet cable should you prefer it. The seamless Wi-Fi connectivity makes for an easier connection to the web and streaming media, but it also makes it possible to share media from other wireless devices on your home network via Allshare DLNA. Whether you're looking to play music, view photos or simply see a movie that's saved on your laptop, you can do it all wirelessly as if all your media is available right there on for Blu-ray player. This opens the door for unlimited media possibilities, all controlled and enjoyed directly from your Blu-ray Player. Furthermore, thanks to Wi-Fi Direct, you can connect directly to your wireless devices by using bluetooth, which means there's no need for a router access point and you don't have to connect to your home network to share media if you don't want to.
Moving on with entertainment options, the Region-Free UBD-K8500 has access to hundreds of apps and streaming media services thanks to the Samsung Apps network. From streaming video (which includes 4k) via Netflix to your favorite TV Shows from Vudu, Hulu and more, you're never limited to what you can watch. There's also an endless selection of music and radio from apps like Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM and more. You can access your social networking sites, check out the latest news from CNN or BBC, check the score on the game from MLBTV or even download and play games like Sudoku or Solitaire right on your TV set. There's also plenty of kids apps that are both fun and educational. There's literally more media and entertainment then you could watch in a lifetime, and it's all accessible right from the player.
The UBD-K8500 is packed with media options, but it's also built to deliver them with exceptional picture quality. In other words, the player is equipped with the best audio and video technology available. From a wider color gamut to smooth and realistic motion processing that supports frame-rates of up to 60 frames per second, this player offers unparalleled image capacity, speed and detail. For those of you with a 3D TV, you'll be glad to hear that 3D Playback is also supported.

It also handles popular audio formats such as MP3, WMA, AAC, AIFF, ALAC, FLAC, WAV, and OGG. If you have surround sound, you'll be pleased to know that the UHD-8500 features multi-channel (up to 7.1) high-definition audio decoding for Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby True HD, DTS HD High Resolution, and DTS-HD Master Audio. Not only are you getting the ultimate resolution with 4k Ultra-HD, but you'll have phenomenal sound quality to match!
Samsung has done great work with this player in an effort to make it one of the best out there, and it's sure to satisfy the needs of any movie or music lover. From dual HDMI outputs and a frontal USB port to 4k upscaling for standard Blu-ray discs and DVDs, there seems to be no end to the functionality and flexibility. You can even rip CDs to MP3 files by using a USB storage device - now THAT is innovation!

From 4k titles to standard Blu-ray Discs and DVDs, there's no disc that it won't play, even if they're imported from halfway around the globe.
