Sony UBP-X700 Refurbished 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray™ Player £129 @ Sony Centre

Posted 29th Oct
Was thinking about a standalone 4k spinner, rather than keep throwing kids off Xbox.

Seems like a good price. thoughts?

Because sometimes I like to watch a disk, even though I do have a huge streaming collection across multiple services

I swaped xbox for 4k blu ray player and glad i did mine was only £80 LG and i only use non 4k disc maybe one day il upgrade my tv one day for better hdr then i wont have to buy new player.
Got it on Prime Day last year for this price. Good player. PQ is spot on.
I've got the UBP-X800M2 and it's a realy good player, the upscaling is excellent and it's very customisable. Only 2 major downsides are that Dolby Vision has to be manually enabled and disabled and there's no HDR10+.

I believe this is basically the same except it doesn't have support for things the DVD-Audio which is only going to be useful to an audiophile nerd with music albums in long dead formats.
sadly OoS now but thanks all the same

The Dolby Vision manual selection thing is just plain odd. No idea why they don't fix this with a firmware update.

You clearly have smoked a lot of pot today as this is absolute jibberish

It is a bit isn't it. To be fair the X800M2 seems heavily geared towards manual confirmation as you've got loads of settings options so I suspect the thinking was that you'd have the option. Why you'd decide not to have it in Dolby if the TV supports it is beyond me but hey ho.

No idea at all. DV would always be better than regular HDR. Only reason for manual selection on a player would be if it supported both DV and HDR10+. But in Sony's case this is not applicable so just confusing from them

What model ofXbox did you swap for it?
one s i found overall performance was better from the the player plus the xbox is know to have problems reading some disc which i found with the walking dead series played fine on player.

for the few 4k disc I did try on my tv the 4k player picture quality seemed better.

A standalone is better however you get the gaming capabilities at the same time with the xbox

yes ther is that but i was not usin xbox for gaming anymore, xbox was great for all streaming plus bt sport app i will miss.

i just know i less likely to find a disc that wont play (skip) with the standalone player.

plus the Xbox One s converts video to RGB internally when playing 4k HDR BluRays regardless of output settings, causing inaccurate colours to be sent to the display.

That was fixed a while back in an update. I’ve never had issues with discs not working on an OG one or a one x, perhaps I’ve just been lucky though?

this was very recent with lastest update it was only on the walking dead blu ray i had this problem some disc not play some disc some episodes would freeze up skip (worked perfectly on standard blu ray players)

reading the xbox app reviews seems the problem is still there but only on certain disc
unexpired, I just bought one! actually never got round to it when posted deal.
