Sony UBP-X800 User Review

    X800 - a short and stubby review
    Review of Sony UBP-X800 UHD Blu-ray Player by Chester, Aug 27, 2017.
    The first thing you notice is the weight and construction, feeling nice and solid with a rugged almost industrial top finish. Front is mostly black plastic and no display. Remote is small and light but navigation is quick and intuitive without much glancing down. The menu is responsive, loading times reasonably quick. So far plays UHD+HDR and FHD blu-rays without issue. All the hardware/software features you need, none of the stuff most people don't. No Dolby Vision, but how much of a problem is that really?! Remote 'Display' button shows useful on-screen info for technical people. Yeah, gets a recommended from me.
    This item was purchased for £319 from Currys in 2017. The reviewer still owns this product.

    Pros

    • Great construction, quite slim but solid
    • Responsive
    • Intuitive remote and menus

    Cons

    • No display
    • No Dolby Vision, however I don't think many people know how small or great a quibble this is yet
