I've had my FMP-X10 for a few days now (delivered on the 16th). Some of my views might have been already addressed in this thread, but I'm going to list them anyway.
I also own an X-1. The X10 is hooked up to a XBR65x900b
Firstly, the packaging and overall appearance is much better than appealing in my entertainment stand than The Tron Disk X1. I have it connected to HDMI 2 on my TV, and Audio Out to my Denon AVR-X4000.
I purchased about 10 movies on the player when I got it, and they just appear in the list with no sorting or anything. Just tossed in at random. I own a Blu-ray disc collection with over 500 titles in it, all alphabetized on a shelving unit. Not being able to alphabetize my content on the player is a pretty big deal to me.
Next, the download speed. Oh man is it bad. I'm hardwired on a 105mbps connection, to a gigabit switch. I've never downloaded faster than 13mbps. The Monuments Men, took literally all day. I've tried wireless as well, as that was recommended in another thread. That topped out at 2.1mbps. For a piece of cutting edge technology, this is abysmal and inexcusable.
I purchased a 5TB external drive to hook up to the X10. Upon formatting it, it only displayed 1TB usable. I tried to call Sony on this issue, but after waiting on hold for 45 minutes, the guy I spoke to in the media player department transferred me to the vaio department as soon as he heard the word "terabyte". After explaining my case to the vaio guy, he wanted to transfer me back to the media player department. At which point I hung up. I'm not trying to spend two hours on the phone. I eventually ended up doing my own research, and apparently the max drive size is 4TB. So, I will buy a 4TB drive and try that.
The picture quality is excellent. Like, really excellent. However, after watching "This Is The End", my friend came over to watch "Wolf of Wall Street" on Blu-ray. The PQ was just as good, maybe with a slight edge to the 4K player.
I wouldn't take that as a negative towards the player, but a testament to just how good the 4K X-reality Pro upscaler actually is. My theater seating is 5'10" from the screen.
Overall, I'm very pleased with the product and I'll continue to buy more content on it. I've purchased pretty much every film on the player I'd like to own, so I'm hoping new movies and shows get release quickly and frequently.
If any of you have any questions, ask away!
