What is DV? And does it really matter?

But its generally agreed that the x800 is the better machine.

As I said...
No Dolby Vision
I have this player and can recommend it for 4k, its great for upscaling DVDs too

note it doesn't support Dolby Vision
Just googled Dolby Vision. Pretty irrelevant unless I want to ditch my 3 year old Sony 4K TV.

Dolby Vision HDR: everything you need to know

Not really. You just said it missed a couple of video formats. Not very conclusive.

Yes. And anyone with a TV that doesnt support it.
FFS - just grabbed panny 820 after giving up on Oppos ridicolous prices for 203 & 205. Googled to death best 4k players and just couldn't find any difference between 820 & 9000 apart from build - not spending extra £500 just on build quality!

And then this deal comes up SOB!!!

I also said the 800 has better build quality. In fact, it's so good it's not far off the ES (uses the same cage).

So future-proofing is of no relevance to you or anyone else? Still using a Nokia 3300?

Got no idea what ES is. And don't really care. Would be nice for someone to just comment on the actual deal, rather than than some techy nonsense! Dont think you can buy this cheaper anywhere else.

its a £170 video player, not a £2k TV. Can buy another video player anytime.

And have never owned a 3300. Still on my 8210.

The ES is the premium Sony range, the 4K Blu-Ray player that shares the chassis with the machine you posted retails for £700. There, commented on your deal - again. Happy?

If your Sony doesn't support HDR10 and DV, that would be a good move. Personally, I rate picture and sound quality over the badge. My point is that you don't have to spend £2K to benefit from these features, as you intimate in you post.

Sucker. That just means it accepts Dolby Vision. Do you really think you will get 12bit hdr for under 400 quid?

No, but this is a 10 bit panel with HDR10 and Dolby Vision support that will still produce a much better picture than one without.

Except it won't. It may accept HDT10 and Dolby Vision signals but it will lack the local dimming and screen brightness required to make the difference. If you seriously believe it will produce a better image than a £1k+ TV from Sony or Samsung you are mighty deluded.
