It doesn’t get much cheaper than this to start playing 4k Blu-ray discs on your 4k TV! Amazon is selling the Sony UBP-X700M model for only $148 — that’s $101.99 off the regular price of $249.99!
The Sony UBP-X700M plays 4k Blu-rays, 3D Blu-rays, 1080p Blu-rays, and DVDs just like its more expensive sibling, the X800M2. It also supports Dolby Vision and HDR10, as well as Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and high-resolution audio formats.
The only real difference between the X700M and X800M2 is the former does not have Bluetooth connectivity. That’s it! Oh, and it’s a smaller, 15″ width player rather than the 17″ rackmount-sized X800M2.
So, unless you really care about Bluetooth the Sony UBP-X700M is a great deal at $148 from Amazon. If not, check out the Sony X800M2 priced $298 on Amazon.
Good price, though I paid only $128 back in 2019 during an Amazon Black Friday sale.
There have been reports from some users that the player randomly freezes when playing BD100 discs. That said, players from other manufacturers have also exhibited this problem.
