Can someone help me convince my wife that a Panasonic UB-820 is a better player than a PS5


Recommended Posts

I've been looking into getting a Panasonic UB-820 for all my 4K disc needs but my wife doesn't really like the idea of having it as well as a PS5 when the PS5 can also play 4K discs. I know the Pana is Dolby Vision compatible, has better upscaling, better tone mapping/HDR optimiser etc but I need some more points to try and convince her.

1. Trade deal: Offer her something she wants, in turn for getting the UB-820?

 

2. Discuss buying the UB-820 and then do an A-B demo. If your wife isn't convinced, agree in advance that you'll on-sell the UB-820?

 

3. It's easier to seek forgiveness than permission (has worked for me a couple of times...I think).

LG C8 OLED

 

OK, the C8 should be able to show off DV's advantages - probably best to use a dark movie of an evening to demonstrate the difference.

We have a dedicated room with complete blackout treatment that is able to block out all light even during the day which helps to show off the TVs black level handling too

I'd go with option 3

Find something much more expensive you would also like to buy.

And then get the rejection.

Wait few days, and ask for the 820... it's all about working the angle and context.

The UB9000 player is very good though ! 

But the 820 might get close to what's needed.  😉

You have a ps5 already? Or do you have first-hand reviews of the UHD capabilities? To me I'm waiting to hear what it has feature wise. Even the Dolby Vision is speculation based on their games not having it. But it'd be more surprising if it doesn't for media.
