Great 4k blu ray player

This 4k blu ray player works great. Just one word to the guys that gave negative feedback ....IDIOTS..... Don't you read the specs before buying something?? If you have an Lg Tv Oled with Dolby Vision....just don' buy this one....buy the 700 model. I have a Samsung ks8000 so didn't need Dolby Vision....perfect for me.

Best DVD Player I Have Owned To Date

From the moment I installed this into our system, I have been nothing but impressed by this player Installation and setup were simply a breeze. Operation is smooth, and it has played all the different types of disks I’ve thrown at it so far. So far I like everything about this player so far.

Plays Everything

Camparabke to my much older Oppo BDP-83. Plays my SACD's and DVD-A's and now I can watch 4k for much cheaper than a newer Oppo

Solid Performer

After a lot of research on the best 4k blu-ray players on the market I picked the UBP-X800. I can't comment on the 4k as I am using it with my 55" 1080p Samsung 3D TV. I have it paired with my Sony STR-DN1080 AV reciever. It is not a simple plug and play and I recommend that you read the setup manual and take into considerations your entire home theater setup to get the best out of the player.Be patient as the first time using it after plugging it in it froze using Netflix and i had to pull the plug to get it to restart. After a little research and an in depth setup with the extensive setting option it is working flawlessly. Netflix opens much faster than on the PS4. Picture and sound with Dolby Surround for Blu-Ray and Netflix is amazing. Bluetooth to my Sony headphones was quick to pair and the sound was even better than pairing through the receiver.

Lasted 2 Months

I am very disappointed in this player. Ordered online on Nov. 27,2017 and received the player in 4 days. Easy set up and was really enjoying the player. Then after only 2 months put a disc in and had sound but no picture. Checked that all connections were secure, they were. So now after only 2 months we have no player. Thought better of Sony.

Its just a great player, not the best yet!!

Yes!, this is a great player with a superior picture and sound, solid built and looking good. One thing is missing no display at all, not good for playing CD's, no tracking info unless you use your TV. Highly recommended to those who are not interested in front digital display, you can find the one with display which is USA model, exactly the same, or just wait for the next Canadian model for sure with the display!!,...coming next!!! Bought this unit on Dec. 26, 17 with a half price, no reason to return...

High end 4K performance at a great price

All the reviews on Youtube highly recommend this player. The best 4K HDR10 picture, upscaling, media support, high res audio, Dolby Atmos, disc loading, build design etc. I bought one and I'm going to buy another.

Hoping Replacement Will Be Better

I purchased this at the end of Dec 2017. First time the power was turned on it took 3-4 mins before anything showed up on the screen. The second time I turned it on nothing would show up on the screen, it would play the movie fine but it would not show the home screen. Sony recommended unplugging it for a few minutes and try plugging it into another receptacle to reset it. Unfortunately I still have the same problem. I'm taking it back to Best Buy tonight, unfortunately they don't have any in stock so I will have to wait.

Perfect !

This 4 K player it is stunning , never mind the extremely amazing 4 K picture and sound coming up from this unit . But, the way its playing so beautifully old old cd's with the so incredible sound . It is all worth it , just if this unit was the only a CD player .

This player is superb!!!

It is superb when it comes to the picture & sound quality, super fast and quick response and easy set up. The structure is solid and handsome loooking, except for one thing that get my attention, the front panel has no digital display aside from the power green led light in its corner, it is totally shiny black out in the front!. Just bought this on Dec. 26, 17 with a very superb price, almost 50 percent discount, will keep it until now and lets see if theres an issue with freezing, so far so good!!

No freezing at all

I must correct some false commentaries. With a correct HDMI cable 4K of a 18 Go/s or better, This component works flawlessly. Enough said.

6 out of 5

This is an outstanding player. It replaces my Denon UDP and is way better. Audio CDs are incredibly detailed and spatial separation is excellent. You can tell where the musicians are standing on stage. DVD's are upscaled to look almost like blu-ray. It's a universal disc player and plays everything you throw at it. The only drawback is that it has no display of it's own - it shows track info only on the TV screen, but the sound more than makes up for it.

No doubt this player is on the top 3 category

This player is above average when it comes to picture and sound quality. The problem that bothers most is FREEZES, this is dissappointing when you are watching and suddenly freeze, stop, you have to replay or skip to the next scene. It is missing also the digital front panel dispaly, the led green power light is not enough when you want to play only your CD and you dont want to On your TV and use the on screen option. So ihad to return the unit even though i bought it for almost half the price on boxing day, Dec 26 2017. returned on DEc. 29, 2017

No 4K UHD MKV support

Does not read 4K MKV files, researched a bit and seems to be a known issue with this player (not sure if this is the same for others). My Sony TV plays the same files with no problem, formatted the drive on the Sony TV to rule out a file system issue and tried multiple drives. Does a nice job on standard BD media to 4K (left the TV to convert it) and nice it has 2 HDMI connectors one to TV and the other HDMI out (audio) to older receivers.

Outstanding value

This is a very well engineered component and that is obvious from the moment you pick the device up. Proper steel chassis shielding the device from interference and vibration. Excellent up-scaling capabilities, very flexible in dealing with various formats, Surprisingly good High Res audio capability with excellent decompression capabilities. Many media players claim the same performance but fail to deliver. This one does. In truth a recent Oppo or McIntosh MVP will out perform the Sony but at a huge premium. I am enough of an audiophile to appreciate the difference but in my opinion media players need to be replaced every 3 years or so as technology continues to evolve.

One of the best 4K player in the market

I just bought this on boxing day, Dec. 2017, this really a good player it reads everything that you put, picture quality and sound are great!. The only problem is very sensitive, it freezes when the bluray, HD, DVD, or CD that you put has a dirt or finger mark on it, thats what i discovered, but when i clean them and play again there was no problem at all. Nothing to worry if theres no front panel display coz you can use onscreen display and enlarge the letters too. Just one of the best!!

Constant Freezing

Even the firmware updates as of December 2017 have not fixed the numerous problems with these units. Seemingly random freeze mid movie, won't detect a disc in tray, or crash after ejecting disc are all common problems of these units. Software issue, not hardware. When it does work, the picture is incredible!

Awesome Product

What a player.does everything I wanted and more. Plays everything I download and put on my Passport drive. has no problems with mkv.mts2 files.so you can can just put any portion of the movie you want to play. I had just bought and returned the new Lg player that was total garbage. This is the player for serious downloaders.to play any format of files you can throw at it. has no proplems with any of the audio formats as well.

Great for old and new

I tried another 4k player before this, and ended up exchanging it for this one. I expected the picture quality on 4k/hdr content to be great based on existing reviews for this model, and I was not disappointed. But what I was really impressed with was with the picture quality of sd bluray discs, and even older dvds. The interface is very similar to previous sony disc players; nothing special, but it gets the job done and is responsive enough to avoid feeling sluggish.

Sony proves it can lead the pack at a more friendly price point

The industry is always poo-pooing the lack of early adopters to any new format. But here's a clue for the industry. So long as they price themselves out of the average consumer's comfort zone the market will remain niche and unattractive to most just looking to watch movies on a Friday night. Arguably, 4K is not geared to this level of consumerism, but Sony has taken a quantum leap forward in making 4K very attractive to just about everyone with this exceptionally fine player. Great playback, very limited down time and great performance overall. Other players cost more but seriously, this is the one you want!

Buy with confidence!

Excellent 4k player! The very first by Sony. A must buy with awesome features and great looks. I am very much happy and satisfied with my purchase. It has everything you want in a 4K UHD blu ray HDR player including 3D built in. Super fast and great sound.
