Got the last one at my local BB today...
Setup was super easy as well as initial tweaking. The GUI is about as plain Jane as can be but it works and does what I need it to do. I watch Netflix, etc via my TV apps so no need for them on the player.
Popped in the Black Panther movie in 4k and it started quickly and easily. Watched bits and pieces and it looked great.
Watched "Terminator" in BD tonight and the video was great and the audio was better...really impressed by this player at least at this point.
This is a replacement for a Sony x800 that I recently received from Sony as a replacement for the 800 I purchased last year and kept freezing. First movie I watched in the replacement was Black Panther in 4k and half way through it froze hard...no response from the remote buttons. I had to unplug it and start it up to get it to work and then it did work fine but that was the last straw...out it goes. I'll try to get a refund from Sony but if not I'll sell it for a few bucks with the caveat that it is sketchy playing some 4k's.
Looking forward to seeing what Dolby Vision looks like but I have to check my disks to see what ones, if any, have DV.
