1 Week update
Well after having owned this for a week- I am 100% certain I'll be keeping the FMP-X10 - but I could see why many current owners of the FMP-X1 would be hesitant to spend $700 on another 4K box- Here is my own breakdown, of which many points have already been covered by other members, but I'll reiterate them anyways...
-Limited selection on quality movies in the 4K store- and even less limited rental options, 23 rental options in total-most being older movies (Jerry Maguire!) otherwise pay $30-$35 for newer 4K movies
-Horrible WiFi speeds when downloading from the 4K store- 4 minute contents push an hour to download- stick with wired and average 25-30mbps
-Obviously cost- at $700 price point, I don't think I would have been an early adopter for the FMP-X10, probably would have waited 6 months for price drop- but having EPP through Sony, at my price, it was a no brainer
-Being an early adopter, you get the wow factor from many people who see 4K for the first time, and it's exactly what I'm getting in combination with my xbr900a
-4k demos look amazing, hopefully Sony updates and adds more?? Jimmy Kemmel demo is the best live concert I've seen on TV ever
-Netflix is strong with 4k- moving arts clips can be just flat out amazing, desert scene! I have TCW 100MB so I hit 4K within 15 secs tops. House of cards look amazing, but damn that show is soooo boring, I had to switch it to BB afterwards lol - so in conclusion, if having the FMP-X10 helps demonstrate the full potential of my xbr900a, then I'm all for it, as Sony did a great job with the menus and store layout, and having the ability to have a hub for everything 4k, makes it worth owning
