I love Laurence Fishburne.
Used or New? £1.50 for the film, £1.50 for delivery = £3 total.

That’s why we bought the X800. Build quality on the X700 was always crap in comparison.
For an alternative and although a refurb :https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Panasonic-DP-UB420EBK-SMART-4K-Ultra-HD-Blu-ray-DVD-Player-Twin-HDMI-WiFi/192840393873 are in stock again. No Dolby Vision though. Reviews seem to state they are in a brand new condition (although not guaranteed to be). Currys sell it brand new for ~£120 at the moment. Quite a saving.
Good price. Would get it if it supported dolby vision
Does anyone know of a way to unlock/hack this for Blu Rays and make it multiregion? The unlocked version is almost £400 which means it is possible to do so.....or know of a company that will do it post purchase?
Got a refurb X700 had no problems at all with it. Excellent player.
The X800M2 due out in May will have Dolby Vision, HLG and HDR10 https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/blu-ray-disc-players/ubp-x800m2
Damn, was about to jump on this as assumed the bigger brother would also have DV, which is a requirement for me. More waiting for me.
This one is really heavy and much more sturdy than the newer X700. Its very quiet too. I love my multi-region X800!
Great player at a great price!
I havent watched it fully at present but quickly skipped through that video review. Interestingly the examples it shows seem to peak at just over 90Mbit on occasion for 4K blu-ray. It's very close to the 100Mbit limit but you should just about scrape through with it provided that's the only task the player is doing that requires bandwidth at that point. It's only going to be the larger 4K higher bitrate files that will prove the most demanding - 99% of what's played would be fine. It'd just be nice to see a flagship player include a gigabit connection as standard. That way you have more bandwidth on tap should you need it in future.
Waiting for the first person to say "who still uses blu-ray discs?"
No it was this price instead of the £54 before discount.
I love it when people jump to comment and then when they're offered the solution they don't even respond to say thanks! Makes me chuckle.
Did you use the code that OP posted (in bold)?
It's showing up at £44.99 for me?
The Co-operative website had these for £119 which comes down to £109 with the MAR10 coupon (and possibly £2 Quidco cashback). I was going to post a deal but I appeared to have bought the last one. (embarrassed) Might come back in stock though.
No Dolby Vision
I looked it up on the Sony website and said 3d ready plus stereoscopic 3d in specs https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/blu-ray-disc-players/ubp-x500/specifications
I'd be interested to know as no 3D would be a deal-breaker for me
Think the X700 supports Dolby Vision and built in wi-fi. I picked up a refurb X700 from Sony Centres direct, excellent player. 4k discs look stunning. Plays every format I have thrown at it, and it streams very well.
Gone out of stock at CO-OP and Amazon so I've expired the deal.
Can you use your student discount with this in anyway? I get 10% off in a co-op store...
True, Xbox not as seamless as stand alone player but is better hardware and future proof. Horses and courses.
Why buy a watch when you can have a smartwatch for the same price? Why buy a sports car when you can have an SUV for the same price? And what's the point of buying a more complex device when the blu ray player is capable of producing 100% perfect functionality every time? Choice, much? Personally I can see that there is a market for both.
Get them for same price, but get much better hardware and versatility.
Has anyone who’s ordered this received it yet? Or had any update on when it will be dispatched
what do you make of the pani 820
I've got an Xbox one X , Panasonic ub900 and ub820. The Xbox comes last.... End of.
Are you being ignorant and saying it's pointless buying one of these? Or are you genuinely interested in what this would offer over and above an Xbox X. In which case, what's your use case?
Same here. Plays all my 4k discs and works great with alexa skill too. The quality of the Xbox One X when playing 4K Blu rays is very good even if the unit does make more noise than a dedicated player.
I've never heard the fan on my UB820 or my previous Panasonic UHD player :/ My Xbox One X is pretty noisy however.
I was finding it was DVDs it was struggling with. The 4k ones I tried worked perfectly, but I still have plenty of DVDs (especially TV series) and it was no good to me - freezing up on average every third disc.
Cleaning the disc fixes freezes, but it's crazy that a brand new factory sealed disc would need cleaning to play properly. It's most common on the highest capacity discs which have three rings visible on the inside.
Extremely basic - I've got the 80 model and the remote doesn't even have a subtitle button - you have to go through about 4 different button sequences to turn them on or off. However, playback has been flawless, unlike the Sony 700 model I swapped it for. That kept freezing!
They were well over £200 last year. Don't find anything wrong with sound got mine running through a Sony 170watt sound base and it's great.
What Hi-fi. Says it all really.
But that's not true is it? Pricespy.
I don't get in the review how they say the sound could be better. Surely it passes a digital audio stream to your amplifier, and since it's digital .. how can it be any different from any other player.
Oof, that's how much they were new last summer.
Cheers for the info!
Exactly what ontheqt said, the fact you need to turn Dolby Vision on or off seems really inconvenient, plus the panasonic has Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HDR10+ support, although I don't believe there are any HDR10+ discs about yet, but its future-proofing. 4K on both devices are virtually indistinguishable if you go by the reviews but the HDR support on the Panasonic makes it worth the extra for me maybe not for everyone though.
Beat me to it, spot on.
See my comments. Cheers
Thanks (y) the internet wasn’t very clear, some argued “Video” and others “Versatile” ;)
It's actually Digital Versatile Disc (y)
Blu-ray and 4K blu-ray are still technically DVD’s (Digital Video Disc’s). They are discs that have digital video on them ;)
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ghostbusters-Blu-ray-Region-Free-Murray/dp/B01DZJLDEE Amazon sporadically have it in stock for prime delivery too... great film.
Try calling your local store. It’s not online - you have to visit or call.
In any of their stores that are centrally run and not franchised. The one in Sevenoaks itself had them.
Wow, just seen this. Which store was that? Do you know if the deal is still running?
I picked this up yesterday and it came with the free 4K Blu Ray offer via Zoom, worth £20. Hughes were very helpful and I’ve always found them good to deal with. I’ve no idea why this is still £299 on-line but I’m all for supporting real stores especially with deals like this.
Stunning deal. Pe2 looks incredible on 4k bluray and puts any so called Netflix and amazon 4k streams to shame. Dynasties looks even better. Get them both. These are the current visual benchmarks. David a really brings this series to life with his wonderful narration. It's not simply a voice over. He brings it all to life. Again
Can anyone recommend a good value 4k player?
You clearly have no idea
There is a very big and noticable visual difference between a 4k blu ray and netflix 4k streaming. Anybody who thinks otherwise hasnt got a clue what they are talking about, needs urgent need of an eye test or doesnt have a good enough tv. Please do not listen to anybody who claims there isnt a noticable difference, because there is, its quite significant actually.
Exactly why proves my point
No wonder HMV is about to expire from the high street
I imagine it back to its 'normal' price now that the eBay 15% offer has ended. I've now expired this.
Showing as £99 for me....
A streamed 4k movie is usually around 17gb. Same movie on Blu-ray Disc about 30gb and then 4k Blu-ray around 50GB. Decide what you are happy with and enjoy
no wifi too
No dolby vision unfortunately
The only one worth keeping in a 4k collection would be Spiderman.
Was it £40? (shock) , I first posted was around £44, couple of months ago.
Got this delivered today on the previous deal. £40 previously
Spending £20 more isn’t “saving money”. Anyway, how is the LG better?
Save your money and get an LG BP350 for £69 :)
Was looking at this earlier, didn’t post it as wasn’t sure if it was a good deal. Will monitor the temp.
Sadly, it's not my review - it's Richer Sounds' product description :) Thanks for the heat though! I thought it wasn't too bad a deal for a Sony quality Blu-Ray player, sub £50.
Wow, thanks for your review of this Op, you've done a great job, Sony couldn't have done better. Heat from me!
The PS4 cannot play 4k Blu-ray and this player can - I think that is the biggest benefit.
Good price, I think it’ll be a while before 8k is available here in the U.K.
Who is? (cheeky) Virgin are a good shout - but they refused to lay 13 miles of fibre to my house... So one of the Openreach supplied providers it is.
Don't feed the troll (popcorn)
Probably because not everyone can get the required bandwidth to stream 4K. Also, some people still like physical content.
I'd still argue the xbox S is the better option, certainly more future proof and is constantly updated by MS. Plus if you do upgrade you can still use it for other things and will be worth something
:( i just bought a OLED and i was looking at a cheap 4k player lol just spent £1300 on a TV cant afford a fancy $k player lmao. at the moment its either the zoom panasonic deal or a x box one s
No Dolby vision or hdr10+ right? I don't want to be 'that person' but the Xbox might be a better option, DV support and rumours that MS will update to support hdr10+ if it takes off. Image quality/ colour accuracy may be slightly worse on the Xbox, but then if you had something like a £2000 oled where the difference would be noticeable you wouldn't be looking at a £100 UHD player.
Read the small print. Or waste your money lol
Will this also play DVDs?
