    Excellent Audio and Video. Only one complaint.

    The audio and video quality exiting the backside of this player is exceptional. Love the fact that it's a full width unit and doesn't have the wedge shape of the lower models. At the end of the day, it's all about getting your content played though, and this unit does a masterful job. Loading 4K movies is quick and I haven't used a disc that hasn't loaded quickly and properly (after the initial firmware update). My only gripe is with Sony's decision to not include a Digital display on the front face. It's hard to even tell the unit is on. That's nice in a dark home theater, but I like having at least a small digital display with things like track info, audio soundtrack format, etc. Alas, for the kind of quality I'm getting out of it, that's a small complaint. And this player reads literally any disc I feed it. I burned off a collection of high resolution digital music (mostly 24/96) to a data DVD Rom disc and it loads it up and plays all the files flawlessly. This has become my new "universal disc player" replacing a far more expensive Marantz unit.

    Best Blu I've Ever Bought

    I have seen this player online and it is very popular. There was a fiasco in the store because this particular model is an updated version of the UX800 (one extra zero there). This is the only player I have seen that comes with an HDMI (albeit a short one) & the audio quality is phenomenal to me, at least compared to previous players I have had. One should note that this is a more serious player, as it is massive compared to any of the other Sony ones I have purchased through the years. However, I am happy with this and do not foresee myself purchasing any other unless this one every gives out, seeing as it handles all the top of the market quality specs!

    HD to 4k upscaler is amazing, makes everything feel like original 4k. Superb 4K disk image quality. One gripe is sound cuts out sometimes when using the second HDMI sound only output, however I believe this is a comunication error with my reciever since its 10 years old. If i pass the sound through my tv then to reciever using optical cable, no issues. Just lose some of the advanced sound formats, dolby and dts true hd sound.

    Unless you want to spend $500 on just a player this is pretty much one of the best you can get. I do recommend waiting until it's in the store so you can inspect the box. Best buy did not have it in stores yet when I bought it and it looked like the shipping carrier played volleyball with my package. Sickening. Haven't had any problems other than that.

    I needed a replacement universal player ,my old oppo finally died,but i wasn't expecting such an upgrade in sound quality, especially the sacd format, mindboggling!the fact that i got it 120 balloons below retail secured the deal. Couldn't be happier, thanx!

    Turns off after a bit on its own

    I don't really use this as much since most of my movie collection is digital but when I do use it the quality is pretty neat. My only problem with this is if you have paused whatever you are watching for a little while, it turns off by itself.

    So glad I bought this player to match my recently purchased 4K TV!! Many streaming options and can play video files from USB port! Only gripe is it does not support Dolby Vision. But all in all a great player at a great price!

    This machine replaces a old Sony Blu-ray player that quit working. So far pretty decent machine. Fast loading and quiet operation. Do miss the LED numbers on the older machines. This one is pretty much all plastic.

    It is pretty straightforward to operate and have not had any problems loading 4K DVDs as some of these do. Remote is a little clunky in size. Price seems a little high.

    Often when I try to watch Prime it says the application is too large to open. Mind you, I can go to my laptop or even my phone and stream it at that very moment; I just prefer to watch on my TV.

    This is a very nice player. Everything seems to work well and set up was easy... It is rather large though, 17 inches wide X 10 inches deep X 2 inches high.

    The player itself has great quality components and pretty quick. The only issue is the inability for resume play... which is important for those bing streaks...

    Unfortunately the cord wasn't long enough for hook up, although it was a great idea to include one. Most are not included.

    We have been very pleased with the picture, but the user interface on Sony Blu-rays is not pleasant. The less you are on it the better.

    Great picture and Internet connectivity however when controlling the unit (play, pause, stop, fast-forward, rewind) it takes a long time.
