    I recently purchased the Sony 4K Blu-ray disc player, and let me tell you, it's a game-changer! This player has enhanced my movie-watching experience to a whole new level. With its built-in Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity, I can easily stream my favorite movies and other content in breathtaking high quality. One feature that impressed me is the super quick start mode. It eliminates any unnecessary hassle and allows me to dive right into my entertainment without delay. Whether it's a movie night with friends or a solo binge-watching session, this player keeps up with my pace effortlessly. One of the standout qualities of this Sony 4K Blu-ray disc player is its dual HDMI outputs. It enables me to connect it simultaneously to my LG C1 65-inch TV and another screen, making it a perfect match for my home theater setup. The picture quality is stunning, and the colors truly come to life on my TV. I can confidently say that I love this Sony 4K Blu-ray disc player and would highly recommend it to anyone seeking an exceptional streaming and movie-watching experience. It's a reliable and user-friendly device that enhances both picture and sound quality, ensuring every movie night is a memorable one.

    Video perfect with this 4k UHD Blu-ray player. Built like a tank as the chassis is aluminum . Weighs about 8 lbs. to dampen micro vibrations produced when spinning high revolutions for 4k content . Outstanding upscalling of standard Blu-ray Disc , very near to 2160 p , near 720 p for dvd disc . Can play virtually any format , and with high resolution audio you truly experience your surround sound home theater. 5 star rated.

    I read a lot of reviews on this player and it sounded great. Got it on sale which made it even better, otherwise I would have bought a different one for cast. Dimensions and design match perfectly with an Onkyo receiver. First time I played it for a few minutes just to test the connections it froze. Second time I played it to watch a full movie it did fine, but while watching the extras, it had been playing for about 3 hours and maybe it overheated because it froze again. After just these two uses I'm starting to lose confidence. This was to replace a very low end Sony blu ray player that quit working after just 2 years. Not sure if Sony is as good of quality as they used to be.

    Beast of a 4K machine

    Such a beast of a 4K machine. Plays great quality blu rays and 4ks. DVD can be a hit or miss depending on the grade but this is an upscaling machine. I opted to use 2 separate HDMI cables for my receiver and TV… totally worth it. I chose this version over the step down for the better build and the Bluetooth abilities. I actually set up my headphones to it and holy smokes it was awesome. I can’t comment on the app support cuz I just use my smart TV to handle those. I can say that I updated the system straight from the box via WIFI and had no issues. There is a blu ray feature that you must leave off if you don’t want this player to skip… something about Blu-ray data something… can’t recall but once I shut it off, I had no issues with freezing (I turned it on when I first set up the player and thought I bought a defective unit. Quick google search fixed it and no issues since). Get this player if you have a Sony or ARC set up on your receiver. I can use my Sony tv remote for the player and vice versa.

    We bought this as an add on to our Sony Bravia OLED. This absolutely stands up to each other with the 4KHD. Hard to understand how we were watching things in the past. This is a BEAST! Sound quality is as good as the theaters!

    This fantastic Sony product allowed me to consolidate two dvd players into one. Previously I was using another Sony Blu-Ray to take care of dvds and SACD audio and a Samsung Dvd player for my DVD Audio collection. Now I have one that does it all and at a very reasonable price and one less piece of AV sitting on the shelf. ********Highly Recommended*********

    I've been wanting to upgrade to a 4k player for a while now, and I'm glad I did. I've always liked Sony's products, and this is no exception. The price at BB was almost a no-brainer.

    Has everything I needed plus USB. Beautiful picture and sound. Hefty player!!! has some weight to it, doesn't feel cheap like some other players do. I love how it only has a tiny little power light, so no bright lights distracting you from your movie.

    So far working like a charm. Had to return the model prior to this one as it kept turning my projector off. This one is built like a tank. Weighs much more and can tell the build quality is very good.

    It was easy to set up, however I wish Sony would provide better guidance about the PCM setting. We sold a inexpensive Sony Blu-ray player thinking that a higher end model wouldn’t have the same issues. We had rented countless movies only not to be able to watch them because we were unable to hear voices, only background noise. After googling and reading numerous articles, many of which I had no idea what they were talking about as I’m not an avid audiophile, I discovered the importance of the PCM setting. Other than that, performs exceptionally good!!!

    Improvement of earlier x800, the x800m2 adds Dolby Vision, Bravia Mode, etc... The Dolby Vision is a bit tricky since it needs to be applied manually in screen settings. For those with Sony Bravia displays the Bravia Mode located in screen settings seems to greatly improve picture. For my ear the Sonic's seem to be improved also.

    Upgraded from the Sony 700 that kept freezing and shutting down. Did the research and went with the new 800m2. Works excellent and the Dolby Vision works great now that I paired it with the Sony 950G. Love it, love my purchase.
