What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sony UBP-X800 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player
  • This is a great 4K player and my Blu-Ray movies look even better through it’s upscaler so glad I finally got one.
  • Only used a couple of times but so far the picture is very good and the machine is very quiet
  • Absolutely brilliant picture and sound.
  • Delivers fantastic picture & sound quality to my TV.
  • A Stunning Player with excellent and beautiful picture and stunning sound.
OPPO UDP-203 UHD 4K Bluray Player
  • 4k UHD discs look amazing. The player loads them quickly and quietly. The installation and setup was child’s play.
  • I do have streaming 4K services but the quality of the picture from the Oppo for UHD & HDR content is amazing
  • A seriously good player - both 4K content and upscaling. Well made and solid; looks and feels expensive.
  • Reference quality at a reasonable price. Infinitely tunable to your tastes, if your serious about home cinema you have to have one of these!
  • Picture and sound are awesome. 4K is superb, and upscales blu-ray's and DVD's well. 3D works especially well. Pairs nicely with my LG OLED 65e6v.

What customers say about "Features"
Sony UBP-X800 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player
  • Very pleased with my UBP-X800 I've had many Blu Ray over the years and this is the best all the features but one you could want.
  • Love the Bluetooth feed for headphones.
  • Top quality blu ray that plays everything from ultra 4K to dvds picture and sound is excellent
  • This player is so solid & looks very well built, lots of features
  • Video quality (and audio with it) great. Firing up a CD really shows off music skills as well - easily a replacement for one box hifi
OPPO UDP-203 UHD 4K Bluray Player
  • Oppo 203 can make ANY 4K disc play in Dolby Vision. Not only that but it upscales regular blu rays to 2160p and also in dolby Vision. As the owner of a DV capable display this was music to my eyes!!
  • It has no 'smart apps' of its own (like Netflix, Amazon Video etc) but I have an Apple TV 4K plugged into the Oppo's HDMI input which covers all that stuff.
  • A great remote, ease of use, silent playback and the ability to play pretty much any media makes this an expensive but worthwhile, nay, essential addition to any cinephiles home setup.
  • Disc after disc I fed the Oppo just to see what it could do. Jaws, Indiana Jones, Lord Of The rings. Older not reference discs like The Princess Bride and Midnight run. All were revelatory.
  • The remote also has a great audio only button that sends a black screen to my TV when I'm just listening to music. Very useful to help you drift off into an album.

What customers say about "Outputs"
Sony UBP-X800 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Player
  • Can load up a USB stick with music as well, all controlled via the app (can also control via TV).
  • It linked to my network immediately and, as such, provides a very reliable connection to the inbuilt apps.
  • Upscales all my music whether from CD or USB to an amazing quality of sound.
  • The ability to play any file types that you offer it from either the usb slot or over your home network is the icing on the cake for me.
  • Great to find 2 HDMI outputs allowing direct video to TV and audio connection to an older receiver that does not support HDR.
OPPO UDP-203 UHD 4K Bluray Player
  • It also has network play so I can also watch and listen to all the media I have stored on my NAS.
  • As a player it is great, works well with my NAS
  • Its the best network media player, you know its going to play network files and play the HD audio formats without a hitch.
  • Pleased it has a HDMI input that is unusual for other players. Appears to be very well constructed.
