Sony UBP-X700 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player – : Amazing Picture Quality, Sound and Silent Running.

Great blu ray/dvd player that does everything written on the box including great picture and sound.

My tv is a 40″ samsung which i purchased 2 years ago ,it is a 4k uh d tv and displays a very good 👍 picture however it doesn’t have hdr , i wasn’t going to buy a new tv just too get this option,so i decided to go ahead and get this sony player which i haven’t regretted at all. You can tell difference between hd bl u ray and 4k bl u ray even when you watch you tube clips thru the internet on the player the picture is a lot sharper and clearer.

You can really see the difference. I had a regular sony bluray player.

Easy to set up and use, picture and sound quality is absolutely excellent. (atmos sounds really great). The player feels pretty cheap, very light but once it’s set up you don’t notice. It isn’t particularly noisy either. I don’t hear mechanical noise during movie watching. It’s a good product considering the relatively low price. Not the best device for streaming. Apple tv and nvidia shield tv are way better in this respect. Fingers crossed that sony will soon release the promised dolby vision update. There’s no mention of this in the manual or on the box.

Great price for an excellent player. Dolby vision update now available but not a great implementation. If you switch dv on you lose 3d playback and all content will be sent to your tv as dv apparently. That said it plays very well and is silent. Also supports 4k hdr for youtube, netflix and amazon prime video.

Nothing to dislike good blue ray player.

Up scales my blu rays which sound much better though my 5. 1 onyko than before when discs were played via my old ps3.

I have never watched a 4k dv d before buying this sony dvd player , was i in for a surprise ?. The picture was magnificent. I do have a sony 43′ 4 k tv. I watched a few minutes of exodus and i was captured by the performance of this sony blue day player. Even other types of other dvd were very pleasing. If you have not watched 4k uhd before you do not know what you are missing. This sony player attached to a sony tv is awsome. 4k uhd dad’s are more expensive but worth it. I am very satisfied with my choice.

  • The Best Affordable 4K blu-ray player. No question.
  • Great accessory for your 4K TV
  • The sound was not tolerable so I sent the player back for a straight swap and happy to report the replacement was much better and now

Sony UBP-X700 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player – Black

Buy on Amazon

The dv update has arrived as it all works flawlessly for me. Setup was a breeze, connected to the internet and updated the firmware and was able to start playing a uhd disc within 5mins. The colours really pop on my oled set and hdr adds probably more to the image that the upgraded resolution if my experience. I tried out several discs and overall the player was performing admirably, until i got to planet earth ii. The disc was vibrating quite a lot in the player and i assumed that the disc was at fault, so i swapped to my copy of mad max only to be met with the same problem. The sound was not tolerable so i sent the player back for a straight swap and happy to report the replacement was much better and now hardly audible. The size of the player is something that appealed to me, being not that much larger than a standard blu-ray player. It’s not exactly a premium looking device but for the money i can’t say i’m that unhappy. Hopefully the promised dv update with drop at some point in the future and will realise the sole reason why i picked this device over the comparable competitors currently available on the market. Defect issues aside if you are looking for a decent uhd blu-ray player that won’t cost the earth and promises dv playback then this should not be overlooked.

Bought this to replace a ten-year-old sony blu-ray player and have been really impressed. 4k hdr disk playback is astonishingly well-detailed with smooth motion and good hdr colour (tested with the last jedi, bladerunner 2049, passengers). Standard blu-rays upscale nicely and look almost as good as 4k-native disks minus hdr colour unless you’re up close to the screen (tested with alien, 2001, bladerunner, avatar, inception). The upbx700 had so-so reviews for dvd playback when it was first released but seems to have improved after a few firmware updates. It pulls every bit of detail from the disk then upscales to 4k smoothly and gives flat colour palettes more range and pop without over-saturating. Results vary depending on the condition of the scanned footage and how well it was originally encoded, but even 1990s dvds are quite watchable at normal viewing distance. My lowest-quality test disk – disney’s the black hole, single-layer, average bit-rate encoding – looks better than i’ve ever seen it and it’s been a pleasure to re-visit old movies that didn’t get updated or haven’t made it to blu-ray, appreciating the extra picture quality and detail this player displays from them.

This is a nice simple player. Easy to to use just like all sony products. One feature i looked forward to was the ability to play video files from usb hard drives. My only gripe is that it does not bitstream dolby atmos from mkv. Here it will downsample to dolby digital. It does however have no trouble bitstreaming dts:x from usb files. Hopefully an update in the future will address this.

I am extremely pleased with my sony 4k uhd bluray player. It arrived quickly and i had it set up within minutes.

The sony ubp-x700 4k ultra hd blu-ray disc playersummary:a great product, pretty much future-proofed and well worth the price. A really good player with really good value for money. Highlights are built-in support for hdr. 10 and dolby live will be added later. Review: first impressionsa solid and well-built unit. A good mix of plastic and metal, with a piano-black trim. Does not look out of place on my unit next to the tv. The remote by contrast looks and feels a bit on the cheap side, but buttons respond quickly and accurately to the touch, and becomes 2nd nature to use. Plugging in and initial setup:the instructions state to hook up all the connections before powering on the unit. My tv is an lg c7 oled unit so i plugged in my own hdmi cable as the sony doesn’t ship with one. It also had an hdmi audio out so you can plug in your sound-bar if you have one. Connecting via lan, usb or coaxial digital is equally simple. Wireless support is limited to 2. 4 ghz but streaming directly from netflix showed no drop-outs or buffering.

I use it for few weeks now and it’s a great 4k player.

Where’s the cable?this is an excellent 4k player, which was purchased to feed a new 4k sony tv. Set up is relatively easy, instructions are sensible, packaging isn’t daft, and the final picture quality and sound is fantastic. Quite why sony didn’t put in an hdmi cable is probably a reflection on how sales are done these days. It would fit in the box and wouldn’t really increase the cost of the product much. I suppose it’s a way of getting extra cash by the hapless customer buying the separate premium cable. We just bought a high quality generic hdmi cable for a lot less and added sony to our list of companies that will always require a substantial discount before we buy stuff from them again because of misguided marketing techniques. Which is a shame, because their stuff is great quality and we want to buy it. Summaryfantastic product, terrible pr.

I found the player easy to use cant wait for the dolby vision software update.

Sony UBP-X700 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player – Black

 this ultra hd blu ray is amazing, awesome picture quality, sound quality, very small and not noisy at all when playing. I know that some people experienced that problem of being noisy while playing a dvd or specially a 4k movie because of the speed reading of s blu day that can be higher. I added a video here while playing the movie dunkirk in 4k and you can’t hear any noise at all, of course a minimum noise is noticeable if you get with your hear very closer because somehow the cd needs to rotate. Before i got this player i was definitely concerning the noise after reading so many reviews that were complaining about the noise. Here the proof not just that is no noise but as well for the outstanding picture quality. Sony never disappointed me at all besides the playstation pro that doesn’t play the 4k movies that’s the reason why i got this player :).

Really shows 4k picture of to its best for a midrange product.

My old dvd player was getting really old so i search on the which?. And i didn’t just get a future proof excellent blu-ray/dvd player but also the ability to stream media (amazon prime, netflix etc) to my non-smart tv. The sony unit is a doddle to set up and i can now watch online media on my sofa rather than on my computer upstairs. Very good quality in sound and vision. I use 2 d-link plugs to connect to the modem upstairs as the wifi in my house struggles with the solid walls. The home screen gives the usual media icons and you can add your own.

Fantastic blue ray player for the money.

This is a great 4k player, with excellent picture and sound. Some u-tubers have mentioned that the player is noisy, this is complete nonsense, i can’t hear it at all when playing a movie, and it plays everything i put into it, except for a dodgy braveheart disk i got.

The 4k bluray player is amazing. There’s no point in my view in buying 4k bluray discs when the upscaling combined with dolby vision works with non uhd / 4k bluray discs. My sony x700 is connected to a lg sj810v tv. I’ve not tried dolby atmos yet with this player, but i expect that to work just as well. A word of advice when plugging it all in and you’ve a display, update the firmware before doing anything else. That way you’ll get the dolby vision etc. Buy this player it’s so good. Don’t bother with lg’s player, nor the more expensive sony one.

Very good product very good value for money.

I have been using the sony x700 in my home theatre for the past few months, upgrading from my previous non-4k compatible blu-ray player. I’m pleased to report the quality difference has been immediately noticeable. I have paired the x700 with my 4k projector, casting a 100” image on my projector screen. A large image such as this means that imperfections can be easily seen, which is one of the reasons why i decided to invest in 4k uhd blu-rays where possible. At the end of the day, why settle for a lower quality image?the x700 feels quite well made, although not quite as premium as the more expensive x800. Despite this, it looks neat tucked into my cabinet next to my av unit. The size of the x700 means it can easily be hidden away and does not look too obtrusive when placed out in the open either. I like that it does not have any display which can catch your eye mid-movie. Just a single status light telling you whether the device is on or off. The front of the unit looks clean with just two functional buttons – eject and on/off.

In my original review i complained about the player locking up when approaching the finale of 4k bluray movies. The manufacturer drew my attention to a firmware update which so far seems to have solved the problem. Since that was my only complaint about the player, and that is now gone, i’ve updated my review score to suit. My original review remains below. **************watching the opening scenes of the ‘the dark knight’ in 4k on a big screen makes you gasp, there’s a section where they cross a chasm on a rope that almost gives you vertigo. I find speech a bit muffled, but that could be my tv, i’m still investigating. My main problem is that the player locks up, regular as clockwork, somewhere around 2 hours into any 4k movie (it could be any movie, but i’m mostly using my new kit to watch uhd for now). It totally ruins the impending finale of the movie. When it happens the player ignores all remote buttons except power off – so that’s what i have to do, then i can power back up and resume play. So far this recovery method always seems to work, so the problem doesn’t seem to be caused by disk content, i suspect it may be a buffering glitch or buffer overflow, perhaps after a layer change.

Fantastic value for what you get, plays 4k movies with plenty of fine detail and colour also plays standard and 3d blu rays with aplomb and also adds a hdr function to give standard blu rays a real pop effect, sound is as good as anything around at this price point, as for the aoos in this, well they are adequate with youtube netflix amazon prime bbc sports and a few others, but should be enough for any caual streaming, also this player streams in 4k for amazon prime, netflix and youtube which is great at this price, and as dolby vision to boot, mine came with dolby vision already installed so no need for the software update, finally it is about a little over half the size if a mid priced blu ray player and i would buy one of these again to replace my ageing blu ray player only.
