Heck, I think that I paid nearly $1K for my Sony S7000 DVD player when it first hit the marker. It's the one with the drop down front and a hardware switch inside for regions. It still works. I've...

Agreed, especially with the royally part. Which begs the question of why would Sony provide the option for P3 (with filter) if there was never going to be a way to use it? Given that movies shown...

Not a problem for my HTPC since I run everything through JRiver MC20 (and MadVR). It has options to switch display settings based on source, so my desktop is always 1080p for easy reading and most...

And my point is that 4K TV owners aren't likely to adapt UHD-BD media quickly as a percentage of owners. The bulk of them will be watching Netflix/Amazon/etc., cable/FIOS/DirecTV, and DVDs/BDs that...

Sure, at some point soon you won't be able to buy a 1080p display, but that doesn't mean that those buying a 4K display will also buy into UHD-BD. You need a large display to see the impact of 4K. ...

True, but given that I already have a Sony 1100, I felt that a disc based media with higher res, 10 to 12 bits, and P3 (all of which are supported by the Sony) would be a good option for any new...

I'm not panicking, but if what I'm reading here is true, then I think UHD-BDs will be still-born. Don't know about anyone else, but for me, if UHD-BDs require internet authentication (even one time)...

Simply is relative. They tied the X1 to an app on the tablet instead of a remote. Why? To either look cool or to push tablet sales. Stupid, not just for obvious reasons, but this requires...

I'd take a refund as a first choice, a swap for a future UHD-BD second, and an even swap of the X1 for the X10 third. Sony needs to do something to remedy this and soon.

In retrospect, even if Sony magically delivered on my previous requirements for a trade-in, I think Thrang is spot on in this suggestion. I'd trade in the X1 toward a Sony UHD-BD player (or a Sony...

I'd only pay $200 if they fixed and added apps (Amazon, etc.) to get more source. It would also be nice if they added higher quality and move movies to their own store. Until then, the brick is...

Most acquired the X1 and tablet as part of the upgrade, which I maintained all along, was a way for Sony to clear their old inventory and justify the MB upgrade within the company. Sure enough,...

Sony is a sinking ship that's no longer reliable for maintaining their products. Very sad, but unless they change their tune, the 1100ES/X1/tablet will be my last Sony purchase. Their roll-out and...

Entered. Movie was decent scifi action, not one of the best, but not terrible either. The visuals and audio were very good and then there's Mila. :D

I'll give this a shot, but best to talk to AVS sales folks directly.

Well, if you do go with 1.78:1 and watch any scoped movies, you'll end up with black bars on top and bottom. Those are harder to ignore or mask than bars on the side which is what you get when you...

2.35:1 fits the OP's wall better and using lens memory, a scoped movie will fill a larger field of view. There will be no black bars either. When watching a 1.78:1 movie or game, there will be bars...

Well if niche means buying a single UHD BD without the costs of including a digital copy, DVD, and BD too, then I'm fine with that. Just publish a definitive standard and start building the players...
