The LG is a bit quieter in regards to disc spin-ups, and the Samsung seems to have a more "drill-like" sound, but it doesn't last forever and usually is only at the start of a disc or when you restart a previously playing video.

Keep on the lookout for sales on this player, especially since the new models are rolling out. You can even check out Best Buy for open box returns, and I've seen the K8500 open box there for $160-180. Overall I'd say its definitely worth it to get one so you can really get the most out of your 4K set.
Is picture quality identical when playing HDR discs?

I have the Samsung and replaced it with the LG last week. I absolutely hated the Samsung. Yes, it does have more apps than the LG (for now) and yes, it does have a nicer menu, but I had nothing but problems with that thing. Some discs not playing, weird video artifacts and the biggest issue I've had with it is lipsync issues. And of course the remote is absolutely atrocious.

If you can get the Samsung for a good price, maybe. But its not worth 200+ in my opinion. I paid close to $250 and it was the worst investment ever.

How's the HDR quality of LG player by comparison?

For those wondering if you should get it or not. I personally love this player and have never had any issues with any discs (4K, BD and DVD). I just saw the price is now under $200, I believe I paid almost $400 on release date. Definitely a great player.

My complaints are minor. It vibrates some with Passengers 4K, but not enough that it bothers me. The living room player locks up with the BD of Terminator 2. The bedroom player, it does not. I don't know why that is. Problem will be solved when the 4K movie comes out.

And yes, the remote sucks. It's too small.

Other than that, it works great.

I have this player and I haven't had a single problem with the player. I did have my first disc freeze on me last while watching Kong. I wiped the disc clean and it played flawlessly for the whole movie. It was the disc at fault, not the player. I paid under $200 for the player last March. I'm happy with it.
