    I was looking for a player that could also handle SACD and DVD-Audio, as i have a large collection of both . Most of the players on the market that play those formats are high dollar items that cost big bucks. The player was affordable at the MSRP, but Best Buy had it for $100 off, which made it a steal. This thing Will play just about anything you throw at it/in it, every high res files, and they all sound great . Plus it handles all the latest video formats, as well as Atmos surround sound. It has the usual apps like Netflix, Pandora, etc. Picture quality is superb. If you need a player that will tackle just about any format and sound/look great will doing it ,the Sony - UBP-UX80 - Streaming 4K Ultra HD Wi-Fi Built-In Blu-Ray Player is a most versatile unit that will get the job done in excellent fashion

    Great Blu Ray Player

    Most of my set up consists of Samsung units but Samsung went and lost their mind by designing their blu ray players with a curve and that was an automatic no buy from me and glad it was. The Sony UBP-UX80 is built like a tank and looks great in my home theater setup. Have watched 2 4K blu rays so far and one regular blu ray and it had absolutely no issues with either. What I do recommend is that once you get it, make sure you do the updates and then reset everything to factory and start from scratch with the new update applied. Also, disable the network features if you’re not going to use them as that will free up the player to focus on what it was meant to do and that is to play blu ray discs. Overall, very happy and would definitely recommend this to friends.

    This player is pretty much what I come to expect from Sony. It is solidly built, easy to set up and in all the areas I have tried. I do not have attached to a 4K TV so I can’t evaluate that. It has a good selection of apps which include Amazon Prime, Netflix, VUDU, Pandora and YouTube. There are other apps available. My only complaints would be the lack of an optical audio connection which I use with my sound bar, and it did forget that YouTube was one of the apps I selected, but it was readily found and works fine.

    Over the past 15-20 years I have purchased many DVD, Blu-ray and UHD players, most of them Sony, one Magnavox and two Samsung. The Sony players never disappoint me and this one is no exception. Our old model for the master bedroom would no longer store our Wi-Fi and streaming accounts information, so I purchased this on sale in advance as a replacement the next time I had to reprogram everything for the umpteenth time. Bingo - works like a charm!

    A couple things about this player: 1) Update the unit. There are a few reviews here that speak to the player locking up. I experienced that prior to a software update. It's been bulletproof since the update. 2) The unit IS compatible with the WSUBPRE1 rackmount kit. That kit is built for the 1000, but it will work without modification. 3) It's suggested that IR control of the unit is the only option. Others have had success using a prior model's IP driver with C4 and Crestron.

    WAS LOOKING FOR A 4K PLAYER TO GO WITH THE TV I HAD PURCHASED EARLIER. WAS AT A MAGNOLIA STORE AND THEY HAD THE X800 OVER WITH ALL OF THE OTHER 4K PLAYERS, BUT THE X80 WAS IN THE MAGNOLIA AREA. I ASKED WHAT THE DIFFERENCE WAS, AND THEY TOLD ME WAS THE X80 HAS A CABLE TO HOOK UP THE PLAYER TO THE TV, AND THE X800 DOES NOT HAVE THIS CABLE. I GOT THIS PLAYER CHEAPER THAN THE 800 AND ALSO CAME WITH A CABLE. A BETTER WIN - WIN.

    I gave it five stars because it met expectations at a great price - got it on sale at BBY for $80 off. Wifi reception is much better than the 2-year-old Samsung player that it replaced - both Netflix and Amazon stream without interruption, which is a vast improvement over the old Samsung. Once I got a proper HDMI cable, the 4K player is flawless.

    This player works great. No more soap opera effect with discs. I do sometimes get 1 little problem, when starting; it doesn't always go to the menu. Usually shutting off and restarting takes care of that. It does show regular and blue ray discs equally well. I wish you could add more apps to the menu, but I can live without them.

    I have had no issues with locking or any of the other hits that these sony units (UX800 included) seem to get. I have found that this model does better at downscaling to 1080p non-HDR, than the Panasonic 820 does. It does a solid job of helping to optimize content on a projector setup as well.

    As best as I can tell this BluRay player is the same as the UBP-UX800 only for a lot cheaper. I bought it when it was the deal of the day for $169. I also have a UBP-UX800 and they look and perform exactly the same. Solid (heavy) full component width DVD player!

    I"m not expert, and this is my first Blu-Ray player, but so far, so good. It was easy to hook up to the TV. It has features that I haven't figured out yet, but I'm working on joining the rest of the streaming world. (I m a little behind on technology.)

    Giving this product 5 stars but take into account that I have had it for only a month. As of now no freezing or skipping and it was easy to connect to my TV. I had to review the TV manual for my Bravia XBR-850B because HDMI inputs 1 and 2 are 4K compatible 3 and 4 are not.

    This is a full featured player with all the bells and whistles. It runs very quietly with fast responses. The model is being phased out from among the top of the product line so the discount price was very attractive.

    I've heard complaints about just about every 4k player out there including this one. I have used this player several times and haven't had a single problem. Bottom line, I'm extremely happy with my purchase.

    The player packs a punch. It plays DVDs, Blu-rays, 3D Blu-rays and 4K Blu-rays. It also plays region free discs for those like me who still get some 3D content from other countries. I’m very happy with this player.

    I got this on a deal of the day! So happy I did. I currently have the XBR900f TV and the picture from my new Bluray player allows my TV to show its true capabilities. (Also nice as my Sony remotes all work with no need to connect).

    This DVD player is easy to use. I plugged it into my Panamax surge power protector. It streams 4K. I love how it is an integral part of our 4K system. It was on sale for $199. It has more features than more expensive models.

    I got this to replace an older BD player on its last leg. Response time, streaming stability and quality are much better than I was expecting. By far the player I have purchased so far! Highly recommended
