Sony - UBP-X700 On Sale for $128

It's on sale pretty much everywhere for around 128 to 130 bucks.

I noticed this in the Target Black Friday ad for $130. Amazon's got it for $128. I'm tempted to pull the trigger. Looks like a great deal.

Along the same lines the X800M2 is on the Best Buy Black Friday ad for $199. Also really tempting.

Don't need Bluetooth but my BX510 (also a 'lightweight' model) had failed. Hope the heavy version holds up better.

Amazon has a refreshed version of this player for $75. I assume it is a refurb. Any one try these?

Managed to pick up a manufactured refurbished unit on Ebay for $60. They went quick, 713 units sold. Comes with 90 day warranty so that should tell me if I have a faulty unit.

FWIW, my X800 (purchased July 2017) was always flaky and appears to have died on me. Had frequent freeze-ups requiring unplugging the power cord which was a PITA when the power strip was easily accessible, but is a MAJOR PITA now that I have the strip buried behind my TV stand. It was stored for over a year while I house-hunted and then moved, but had been perfectly behaved at my new house since April until a couple nights ago when it wouldn't turn on and unplugging (even leaving unplugged for over 12 hours) had no effect. Extremely disappointing.


Pulled the trigger on an X700 because it's $75 cheaper than the X800M2 and obviously being built like a tank didn't prevent my X800 from defecating the sleeping place.

You're not the 1st person to report transitioning away from the X800 to the X700...there are other posts.
