All they care about is warehouse efficiency and squeezing every penny they can out of every single transaction.
I don't think this is the pickers fault, it's however they categorize stuff as used/warehouse and they obviously think of a slipcover as disposable packaging.

I have noticed the TV & the player don't seem to get along on dvd, I get the "Soap Opera" look & don't seem to be able to fix it in the motion settings. I haven't watched a blu-ray yet on it. The actual player has very few adjustments. The TV has a ton of them. Thx!
No, Casablanca isn't the quantum leap in picture quality you'll immediately notice. The largest difference from 4K UHD is the enhanced color rendition.

My first two recommendations if you're looking for classic films are either My Fair Lady or The Ten Commandments on UHD.

Could not disagree more! I just got Casablanca and the picture is Definately very noticeable in upgrade from blu ray! Contrast between the black and whites is awesome. The light and “ glow” if you will around Ingrid Bergman is gorgious,And the detail for an older film like this excellent! Very highly recommended IMO-

Re: Amazon: Blu-ray discounts and deals mega-thread

I just watched the Casablanca 4k & also compared it on the same player with the Casablanca/African Queen 2 br set.

Here's what I saw:

1. The 4k had a lot less grain. I don't know if that's due to the 4k, or due to a superior transfer.
I saw Casablaca in a theater (TCM thing) a number of years back; I also noticed the grain in the theater which lead me to believe it was being played from a dvd. At that time, someone commented that the grain was more accurate! In tonight's comparison, I don't think so; though the 4k did not have more detail; just a clearer picture. I also am uncertain if I used a 4k rated HDMI cable; & how much difference that would make if I didn't. It was definitely in 4k packaging & said 4k on the disc. The player (LG) stated it was a blu-ray..Again, no idea if that means anything, or if LG players call 4k discs "blu-ray".

2. The Blacks at times were too black & some detail was lost in dark scenes.

3 for $40 4K sale. These are Universal and Warner Bros titles. Includes fairly new releases including The Exorcist, Barbie and The Flash,
Also included are the individual releases of the Hitchcock films included in Vol 3 of the 4k box sets - Rope, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Frenzy, Topaz, and Torn Curtain. I earlier posted a link where some of the items listed on sale page didn't take the discount. I found another link that works for all items listed.
