It’s not every day that a Panasonic 4K Blu-ray player costs just $149

It was $128 on Jan. 24, but this is still a nice deal

Black Friday brought a couple stellar deals on Panasonic’s acclaimed 4K Blu-ray players. Those came and went, but there’s one happening now that you may want to check out at Walmart. Panasonic’s base model 4K Blu-ray player, the DP-UB150-K, is just $149.99 (normally $199.99). This deal was previously a bit better, selling for $128.29, but Walmart increased the price. However, it still isn’t being offered at any other retailer. In fact, Amazon and Best Buy’s open-box options cost more than the brand-new model selling at Walmart.

People who are really into 4K Blu-ray will suggest that you skip this model altogether for the pricier $249.99 Panasonic UB420-K, or the $499.99 UB820-K. Both have their merits, with extra audio outputs, more appealing form factors, more comprehensive HDR support, and Wi-Fi (the UB150-K supports Ethernet connectivity only). But if you just want a rock solid player for 4K Blu-ray discs, standard 1080p Blu-rays, and DVDs, I suggest checking out this deal.
