      I purchased this Sony UBP-X1000ES primarily for the sound / varied disc selection. I wanted a player that would play SACDs, as well as other discs, not just CDs and streaming. At this point in time, I don't own a 4K TV, so am unable to speak to that aspect. Having said that, Blu Ray and DVDs up scaled to 1080P look great. Due to some limitations of my setup, the video is routed through my receiver rather than directly connected to the TV. If you able to use the video HDMI directly to the TV, and send the audio to your receiver, that is the best setup. I choose the X1000 over the X800 because of the better build quality of the ES unit and because it has stereo analog output as well as separate video and audio HDMI outputs. The sound is great. I have played SACDs, CDs, HDCDs, and video discs with DTS as well as Dolby. The player handles all of the formats very well. I'm very pleased with the sound quality. If you don't care about surround sound and want pure stereo sound, I would suggest using the direct analog outputs directly to your amplifier. IMHO, no point in decoding files 2x.

      Choose the UBP-X800 unless you need analog outs.

      The only difference between the UBP-X1000ES and the cheaper UBP-X800 4K players is the ES model has analog outputs, a front panel display and better quality feet on the bottom of the unit. Otherwise it is identical to the UBP-X800 in every way. If there are any differences between the two internally, Sony doesn't tell us and I haven't noticed a difference in either sound or picture quality, both of which are excellent on these units. Whether that is worth the difference in price is up to you. I don't think it is and I would expect something better from Sony's ES line as far as build quality goes. I was also turned off by the cheap, generic looking box the ES unit came packed in which doesn't even look as nice as the standard units box. I would go with the UBP-X800 unless you really needed the analog outputs or wait until the UBP-X1000ES goes down in price.

      Does things that a smart TV can't

      I thought long and hard about buying the SONY UBP-X1000ES, but I didn't want to make all of our DVDs obsolete, so I went for the top of the line SONY. The set up was relatively easy and I eventually got to the software upgrade. My TV is an 4K LG OLED, and was able to access many of the You Tube 4K videos, but one feature that the SONY allowed me to access was the 4K mp4 video. If I tried to watch my "home movies" with the smart TV, no luck, but running them through the SONY- success. The one problem I had was after registering the product, I was supposed to get a couple of 4K DVDs, but for some reason, the serial number had already been submitted, (by me? or by someone else?), and even after explaining to a service rep in chat mode, they never gave me the DVDs or a credit.

      Played Starwars last jedi in 4k. Extremely happy with the quality of the playback. Intense colors, smooth details, deep blacks......, impressive. Had been playing 4k disks in my XBOX 1, but this blew it away in quality and sound. BUT Half way through the movie, it froze. Went black. Tried 3 times to exit movie and play back from that point. It would load, but would freeze. Finally had to remove disk. After inspecting the disk, three finger prints were on same. So cleaned the disk and did not have that occur again. Even started it before the failure. Will be putting it through the paces this week. Chose the quick set up, easy. No hassles at all with the installation either.

      Best 4K player yet

      Did a bit of feature comparison prior to purchase of this player. Dolby Vision was something not sure of yet. Apparently, I was told at Best Buy store that Sony rep confirmed a software update would be made available that would render the player DV compliant (for both X800 and X1000ES). However, not sure when that's going to be made available by Sony though. Plays almost every type of disk tried so far. Apps like Amazon support UHD. Had also been playing media files from USB drive with 4K upscale resolution. Works very well even with 2015 Samsung UHD HDR TV.

      Flawless 4K

      Researched multiple options, several of which would have likely been acceptable, but we have a Sony 4K TV and Soundbar and the interface with the X1000ES is seamless. No need to switch inputs on the TV; everything is automatically engaged as soon as the player is powered-on. Not inexpensive but also not the insane reference level pricing we've seen in the past for top of the line performance. Upscaling for 1080P BluRay discs is very good; approaching the quality of a native 4K disc. You won't be disappointed.

      Best 4K bluray player on the market

      This new Sony ES player is built like a tank and really delivers on picture and sound. The 4K picture is second to none, and standard blurays look the best I have ever seen. This new Sony is also a home run for sound quality. Cd's and sacd's sound superb, as does Spotify premium streamed through the player. This is my 3rd 4k player, and I'm finally satisfied that I'm getting all the best from my collection. If your looking for a high end 4K bluray player, I would highly recommend this one before making your final choice.

      I bought a new DVD player when I bought a new 4k tv. Well I had nothing but problems with it. So after sending it in for repair, it was returned to me not totally repaired. I sent it back and then they told me they couldn’t repair it and would send me a check for the cost of the machine. Well I’m still waiting for the check.If you want a good 4k 3d blu ray player pay a little extra and get this one you will be happy you did.
