I don't have mine yet. I haven't even ordered it yet. I'm waiting for it to show up in the physical store at BestBuy before I make my purchase. I'm looking forward to pairing the Sony X800 with my Sony UHD TV and Sony Speaker bar. I've been using the Sammy UHD BD player with them for over a year now.

Will be picking one up tonight. Main need is hdr to sdr bt2020 conversion with an hdfury integral. I currently have the oppo and Panasonic players to compare. Oppo is already going back so it will be between the Panasonic and Sony. Not even sure if the Sony will be able to do sdr bt2020 with the intergal. If not that will make this an easy choice to return. If it does I'll need to do a lot of a/b comparison.

I'll post my findings and general impressions this weekend.

For those who do get a chance to test out this player, can you let us know what apps it features? Specifically does it have Amazon 4K w/HDR, Netflix 4K w/HDR, VUDU w/UHD, Fandango Now, and Sony Ultra? Thanks.

My Sony UBP-X800 is out for delivery. I live in Northern California area. Will be connected to my LG OLEDB6P UHD TV. Does anyone who has received theirs already know if it comes with the free 4K Ultra Blu-ray movies mentioned in the Amazon product page?

I wish Sony had published the manual. Wife picked mine up so I will play with it tonight. would like to read what settings correlate with this:

"4K HDR to SDR conversion (
When playing 4K HDR content on a 4K SDR television the UBP-X800 utilizes a unique Sony algorithm that you can adjust to reproduce the proper brightness and color gradations to provide the best picture possible.)"

As with the other threads (Oppo, Samsung, Panasonic) that we are transitioning from, please do not clog the thread with order status, waiting, etc.. Keep those to the announcement thread.

Mine had a sticker on the outside of the box with the free movie offer information. It lists a website to go to where you fill in your name, address, etc. along withe the serial number of your unit. It states that after 2 or 3 business days, you will receive a redemption code via email which you then use to select the movies you want.

I'm not knowledgeable about projectors, but there is an item in the setup menu called "Display Type". The two options to choose from are "TV" and "Projector".
Thanks. I don't have one yet, but what I meant, because they're both Sony, they may fit well.

OFFICIAL Sony UBP-X800 Owners Thread

I'm not knowledgeable about projectors, but there is an item in the setup menu called "Display Type". The two options to choose from are "TV" and "Projector".


That's really interesting that they have the choice, I wonder what choosing one or the other would cause the player to do differently.

Is it possible projector mode would strip hdr and send sdr bt2020 like every projector owner wants? Would be a good move by Sony.

Received mine

first impression:
1. vudu and amazon does not work, needs software update, but there are no updates yet.
netflix seems to work, I did not login. NO SONY ULTRA 4K (big no-no for non Sony TV owners). No VUE, no playstation video. Needs further software update.


2. load time is very fast. faster than samsung k8500, philips, xbox. Comparable to OPPO

3. 4k 60p, mkv, dts hd through usb (like the s6500 I had), info shows HDR, if no hdr detected, it will show SDR, AV type.

4. overall feels solid, not like the plastic s6500. definitely feels higher quality than k8500, philips. smaller form factor than oppo, but feels just as heavy.

that's it for now.
