Player constantly freezes
I bought the Sony UBP-X700 because I have a 4K TV and I wanted to start adding 4K Blu-ray discs to my collection. The player would not play Kill Bill (either movie), it would crash when it got to the title screen and I would have to unplug the machine from power to reset it. It would not play 4K Lego Batman at all. There were a bunch of other 4K movies that the player would crash half way through the movie and I wouldn't be able to watch the end. I Googled "Sony UBP-X700 freezing issue" and I discovered that this seems to be a common issue wit...h the Sony 4K Blu-ray players. So after about two weeks of disappointment I returned the player and swapped it for an the LG 4K Dolby Vision Blu-ray player instead. The LG has played all the discs fine that the Sony wouldn't.
Purchased in September 2019.

This has played every CD/DVD I have thrown at it, A compact player worth every penny, no problem with the remote on this model, easy to connect to TV and internet via Wi-Fi, and your ready for business. I buy Blu Ray discs where I can pending on the cost, I try to get them om special

4k IS AMAZING
I bought this with Passengers, 4k bluray. It looks amazing. The sound and the picture are both superb.
I tried Netflix and the picture is too dark. I don't know if its a setting or not but certainly from disc the picture is excellent.
I tried to stream my 4k videos from my PC in the study but they constantly buffer. streaming 1080 videos are fine, about 20gig files seems to be the limit before the bit rate is too high. The unit only has a 10/100 network so i think this is the issue. the files play fine when playing from the xbox so i know this is a limitation on the Sony unit.
So for playing blurays its great. i removed a star for the netflix and streaming limitation.
