    I was apprehensive at first because of the other negative reviews I've seen on this website. However I have not experienced any of the problems they are talking about. I watched multiple 4K ultra HD movies and experienced no issues. I however ended up purchasing an open box item while they were on sale so I got mine for under $120 but the unit looked brand new. I went ahead and got the geek squad four year protection because of the other reviews in case anything goes wrong with the unit. As other reviews state the manual switching for Dolby vision is 88, annoyance as people who are less technically inclined might not know which movies are adopted with Dolby vision so you have to switch it on and off depending on the content you're viewing or it will skew the picture. There really aren't that many other options in this price range so for th I'me price I paid I would recommend this unit if you're looking for a ultra HD 4K player. I have not used it for any upscaling or apps as I only watch discs with it so I can't say anything about those. It has great picture quality good blacks but most of the issues I found come from the 4K ultra HD disk adaptations themselves as it's difficult to have a movie displayed with HDR content when it was only filmed in standard dynamic range so older movies have a hard time with that however that's a TV issue and old technology meshing with new technology problem.

    I had been using an Xbox one for blue rays and while it did the job adequately, this dedicated blue ray player does the job way better. I had grainy issues on some of my movies on the Xbox but on this Sony it's extremely clear and paired with my LG 4K tv and Sonos Arc+Sub I finally feel like I'm getting the visual and audio experience that I've been wanting. I bought it on a great best buy deal as well so the price was great but even if not on a deal the price is very fair especially when compared with some of the other similar offerings by Panasonic for example. I've had no issues with stuttering or any issues at all for that matter and can confidently recommended it for all your blue ray needs.

    Great swiss knife style 4K player: best price for getting HDR formats, including Dolby Vision, and playing and upscaling with great image quality. Deducting a star because: The player froze up with my only new 4K disc and a bluray disc. Then it got better, used it constantly and no more "freezes". I will updated if needed. DVDs and CDs: no problem at all. Dolby Vision: Needs to be toggled manually, and you should not keep it on since it would distort non-Dolby Vision discs.

    I previously purchased the X800M2 for my living room tv and it performed great. I didn't need as robust an option for my basement tv so I purchased this one. It has both dolby vision and atmos. The menu options are easy to get to so switching to dolby vision for any 4k discs is easy. I've played regular blurays in it and they look good. Even though I have an LG tv, it integrates well with it.

    DVD player comes with Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, etc. services. Makes it easier to have everything in one place. Easy to use and connect. I was surprised to find out how much DVD players cost today, but with all the features included I can see why. Nice design, slim, lightweight, easy to use.

    Great price for a 4K Blu Ray player. Have played my DVD's and Blu Ray disc just fine. The only 4K movie I've played on it so far is T2 - looked absolutely stunning on our 70" Samsung. The audio in our surround sound setup was also amazing, you don't realize how much you're missing out on when streaming movies! They're have been reports of freezing and the like, I haven't experienced that. There is a Facebook group out there that shares settings you can make on this particular player to prevent any issues. A definite must have for your home theater setup.

    Pretty nice little 4k ultra hd blu ray player. Have been impressed with everything so far. The only thing I don't like about it is that you cannot install any new streaming apps, you only get the ones that were included when the unit was released. (Netflix, Hulu, and amazon prime are available, but not Disney+ or Curiosity, etc...) Can just use the smart tv apps or the roku to do that, but would prefer not to always keep changing the source input on the tv. Still a nice blu ray player though.

    Haven't fully utilized all the features. I was able to play Top Gun Maverick in 4K and the picture quality was absolutley beautiful! The Sony comes with an HDMI v2.2 specifically for 4k. I didn't use the built in apps but wifi was working when tested. I have a 4k Roku so I didn't need to use the included apps. It's convenient if you don't have a Roku or streaming apps on your TV. The player has a small footprint and can be used in confined spaces.
