Got the player today... though it arrived on 19th, couldn't pick it up from my mamas place who hand carried it for me.

Can't really say unboxing, as it was already opened for easy carrying.

Sticker on the outside said 2 bonus movies and the movies were sealed inside the box... worth 80$
The free movies thing may be random or specific to certain regions or countries. Each Best Buy seems to be getting only a few units.

First impressions are, the metal chassis unit is solid and has weight... and I’m a sucker for build quality.
No HDMI cable included... the power cord is attached to unit rather than a separate cord and a simple looking remote..

I have done many comparisons side by side with my sony blu ray player and firestick. There was a huge difference in performance and mine is just a basic entry level blu ray player.

Yeah but since YouTube audio quality is bad not much difference. Only the volume level will be better in the Blu-ray player. You don’t have to go for a premium Blu-ray player. The 10k ones will do the job and Sony 700 4K player is good. Available for 23k

That's some logical thinking and practical choice hydrovac!

So, earlier DUNE 4K media player, and now 4K Blu ray.
Looks like you are heading towards 4K UHD set up... what about the display?

Have you hooked up the player yet...? if so, we are eager to hear about the impressions.

Thanks Haribabu,

Yes, this is an amazing universal player... have you auditioned this model?

I tested the SONY X-800M2 in my existing set up by replacing the Panasonic DMP-BDT360GA. Played the 4K disk on1080p display.

Though i am upgrading to 4K sources, still have a 1080p display.
Currently watching on 2.4:1 in poor mans lens mode, ie. zoom method to fill the screen.

I am more than happy with the current image quality. No plans to upgrade the display to 4K yet.
My goal is to experience the image in full glory by installing an Anamorphic lens.

A preowned lens came up for sale and negotiations to buy the same is on.
