The Sony UBP-X800 may not be the first 4K blu-ray player on the market.
It's speedy, it offers great image quality, and has pretty much all the streaming services you could want.
While the Sony competes with other $300 players out there, it's the styling and build quality that sets this model apart from the others.
The Sony is solid metal One little grumble is that there's no LED display, and no play button.
Which you would normally expect on a premium device.
The interface is simpler than the [UNKNOWN] media bar of old, and it has the ability to arrange shortcuts the way you want.
But pretty much the only service that isn't available is HBO.
It's fantastic for streaming apps.
And on the four seconds to start Netflix, it's the quickest of any Blu-ray player we've ever tested.
An almost indistinguishable for a Roku box.
Image quality is absolutely up there with the best, especially for standard blu ray.
1080p movies look as good as you can possibly make them.
Surpassing even our high in [UNKNOWN] reference, meanwhile 4K video with ACL looks as good as with any of the other players we've seen.
Well audio quality isn't just remarkable and it's digital output only this can be solved by using auto instead of PCM by the player menu.
Until companies start talking about Eight-Bay content, the 300 bucks for Sony Office is pretty much everything you need in Blu-ray player right now.
