Sony UBP-X800 4K Blu-ray player review: Premium vibes

 

The UBP-X800 has impressive build quality and video performance, but the cheaper Sony offers a better deal.

The Sony UBP-X800 4K Blu-ray player offers excellent design and oozes a "premium" vibe. Video quality is as good as any player we've tested. It's incredibly fast at loading apps and has some impressive features including Bluetooth streaming.

It can be slow to load 4K discs. Limited number of audio outputs: no optical digital or stereo analog. The player requires a little hands-on fine-tuning to get the most out of music and DVD replay. No Dolby Vision. Sony's X700 is cheaper and has Dolby...

Sony UBP-X800 Ultra HD Blu-ray Player Reviewed

 

Adrienne Maxwell reviews Sony's UBP-X800, a universal Ultra HD Blu-ray player that supports SACD/DVD-Audio playback, offers Bluetooth audio output, and features streaming services like Netflix, VUDU, and Amazon Video.

Sony's first entry in the Ultra HD Blu-ray market is a good one. The UBP-X800 is fast, well built, and very reliable, and it delivers a high-quality video experience. Although it lacks some of the advanced connection and setup flexibility that you'll...

Sony UBP-X800

 

The UBP-X800 is a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player with a difference: it's also a universal audio disc player and a hi-res audio player. Sony may be a tad late to the 4K Blu-ray party, but this triple threat is worth the wait, especially considering its...

Consider the UBP-X800 Blu-ray player a high-end steal.

Sony UBP-X800 4K UHD Blu-ray player review

 

Great video matched with exceptional audio

Superb 4K UHD Blu-ray picture performance ; 4K Netflix and Amazon onboard ; SACD and DVD-A compatibility ; Hi-Res Audio file playback

No analogue stereo output ; Not Dolby Vision compatible

Sony hits the UHD sweet spot with the UBP-X800 - a brilliant, beautiful 4K UHD player at a sensible price.

Sony UBP-X800 review: Top-class 4K Blu-ray playback

 

It might cost more than the Xbox One S, but it's quicker, quieter and video quality is superb

Sensational image quality ; Wi-Fi and Bluetooth streaming ; Good selection of apps

Mediocre upsampling ; No support for Dolby Vision

As with most dedicated 4K Blu-ray players there isn’t a huge difference in image quality compared with an Xbox One S, but if getting the very best video out of your expensive 4K TV is what you want, you value the streaming features and you’re willing...

Sony UBP-X800 review

 

Sony announced its first 4K Blu-ray player in September of 2016, the UBP-X1000 , and while it looked like it was "the business", it was also a sobering $700 (roughly £540 or AU$940). Fast forward six months, though, and the more affordable version is...
