Depends on whether Dolby Vision is important to you.

I think that this is a very good deal for a DV UHD player.

did this player finally receive software upgrade to DV? even if that's the case I would rather wait for next year's models.

For what it's worth, I bought this a few weeks ago and it was so loud playing Cars 3 UHD. I ended up returning it. I'm going to wait to see what UHD players are announced at CES 2018 that will have Dolby Vision.

Did you update yours recently? Mine isn't loud at all and I've watched a couple UHD movies and a couple 3d

It seems to support 4k streaming from Netflix and YT, but not from Amazon. Is there a player that supports 4k streaming from all three?

Man....still no Dolby Vision update? What's taking them? They said by the end of the year....they have five days.

My guess is that they'll have it for the 2018 year...perhaps a licensing agreement with Dolby Labs that starts at the top of the year?

According to post #7 there is already an update for Dolby Vision.

Dolby vision update was released in late aug and pulled about 2 weeks later. Apparently they had issues with it and will release it again in 2018. Bigger issue with this player buzzing sound this player makes on some discs. That is what has kept me from picking it up but some people on the avs forum have said the newer manufacturer dates have less issues.

That is a common complaint about this unit. The loud drive.
If I recall, there was a certain build date when they made the drive quieter (switched to a different vendor?). In my case, that won't matter since, the room I am going to use this has its components in a different room (a closet behind that area) so the loud drive won't bother me.

I have this player. Initially I had no problems with noise, but then it started up a few months later. I discovered a way to quiet the problem: I start the disc, physically pick up the player and tilt it 90 degrees on different axis. I know it sounds tedious and dumb, but it works everytime. Otherwise, I've contacted LG and they agreed to send me a postage paid label so I can ship it back to them to look at. They originally wanted to send me to some mom and pop shop, but I insisted they allow me to ship it to their facility.

Got this for $108 before Thanksgiving from Frys and I have a feeling it'll be that price soon.
