LG UBK80 (2018) vs LG UBKM9 series Ultra HD Blu-ray players (2019)
The LG UBK80 (2018) and the LG UBKM9 (2019) are merely passable for their respective price points and don't stand out from their competition in any meaningful way. We recommend that you take a look at some other Blu-ray Players that cost around $200.
However, if you're still interested in learning more about these two options, we wrote a short summary of what we know about them:
The reviewers at Wirecutter (NYTimes) have featured the LG UBK80 (2018) in their The Best 4K Blu-ray Player roundup. However, it fell short of making it to the top of their list.
Taking a look at the LG UBKM9 (2019), we found that it hasn't managed to perform well enough to earn a spot in any Blu-ray Player roundups done by sources that conduct their own, high-quality, hands-on testing. That alone makes it difficult to recommend.
Lastly, we tried to do a direct LG UBK80 (2018) vs. LG UBKM9 (2019) comparison of review ratings between these two products, but couldn't find any review scores for the LG UBKM9 (2019).
Compared to all other Blu-ray Players on the market, however, the LG UBK80 (2018) performed great. When averaged out, it earned a rating of 9.3 out of 10, which is much better than the 8.1 review average of Blu-ray Players in general.
