Sony UBP-X700 Review - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player with Dolby Vision - Home Theater Series Continues!

hey everybody it's Lon Seidman and we're back with my home theater talker serieswhere we've been looking at my home theater upgrade upstairs and this allbegan about last December when I got the LG OLED televisionI bought a 65 inch TV which I absolutely love and I've been trying to find themost economical way to get really high quality 4k video to that set so ofcourse we've got the Nvidia shield that's been doing a good job of that butthere are a lot of movies now that are using Dolby vision like the Star Warsmovie here that I can't rip out to a file and play through that Nvidia shieldat the best possible quality so that set us off on an adventure to find the right4k blu-ray player and I went into this kind of blind in the sense that I didn'tdo a lot of research prior to buying my players so the first one I went with wasthe Xbox One S and I needed to get an Xbox One S anyhow for some stuff here on thechannel so I figured hey this might be a good way to kill two birds with onestone and get a decent playback device that could do everything I need but aswe saw in the initial video it didn't quite stack up has no dolby visionsupport it's incredibly noisy and it's not outputting video properly for thebest color replication on screen so that one was tossed out then we went to theOppo blu-ray player which was awesome but that player is very expensive about500 or $600 it's getting discontinued so it's not going to be around all thatmuch longer and I felt like you know budget wise it was kind of overkill forwhat my needs were so I went out about a month or two ago now and bought thisplayer from Sony this is the Sony ubp X 700 it's $200 so very affordable atleast in comparison to some of the other stuff we've been looking at here in the4k series and it actually is meeting my needs and the only reason why I didn'treview it earlier was that they didn't have the Dolby vision update availablefor it yet so when I bought it it didn't support Dolby vision but now it does ithas had a firmware update get pushed down to it so we're going to take a lookat this player and tell you what I think of it in this video we'll look throughsome of its interfaces and explore some of the ways youcan use it with your own 4k home theater but I do wanna let you know in theinterest of full disclosure that I paid for this with my own funds all theopinions are about to hear are my own nobody is paying for this review and noone has reviewed what you're about to see before I uploaded it so let's getinto it now and see what this cheaper player is all about so let's take acloser look now at the hardware this is not a very well built device in fact itfeels very Hollow and cheap a lot like what you would expect from acommoditized blu-ray player you might buy at the department store so itcertainly doesn't have the Oppo real heavy-duty feel but playback quality isreally all that I cared about and it seems to be doing that just fine thedisk goes in over here there's a door that will pop open when you eject thetray that will flop back up there you've got an eject button and a power buttonhere you can connect up your external storage to the USB port here it'll playback pretty much anything actually within reason including lossless audiolike flak or AIFF or wav so if you've got some high quality audio you can playthat back here along with your mpeg-2 and mpeg-4 video I'm pretty sure itsupports HEVC stuff as well on the back here you've got the power that goes inright there here is your LAN port for connecting it up to Ethernet it's 100megabit but that's good enough for most of what you're going to throw at thisplayer over the network it does have a bunch of apps which we'll take a look atin a few minutes too because the remote has the Netflix button on there ofcourse I'll talk more about the remote in a few minutes it does have Wi-Fibuilt in it's a B G and n it is not AC so my advice always if you can plug itin via ethernet now you'll notice there are two HDMI ports here on the backbecause this player like the Oppo has the ability to send the audio outthrough a separate port and this is important because if you have an olderreceiver that doesn't support 4k video you can still use that older receiver sowhat you do is run video out to your new TV over here run this cable out to yourreceiver for audio so you can get your lossless audio working without having toupgrade the receiver and as you all know from my previous episodeI upgraded my receiver before I bought one of these players and I didn't reallyneed to because I could have just bought one of these dual HDMI outputs and beendone with it it does have the ability to adjust theaudio delay so if your audio is a little bit out of sync you can adjust the delayinside the player to make sure the video and audio sync up for other forms ofsurround sound the non lossless forms you can run a coax digital out to yourreceiver as well on this but that's it for ports if you don't have HDMI you'regonna be out of luck but I think for the most part if you've got your fancy new4k TV it's going to support that we did see on the Oppo player that it had moreoptions for audio output so for example it could actually decode the audio andrun it out to your receiver with a straight cable this will not do that ofcourse but again for my needs I didn't need anything all that fancy and allthat extra stuff and cost really wasn't necessary here's the remote and it's atiny little remote and not a great one I think it does support HDMI CEC so youcan use your existing remote controls if you wish to control it not much to theremote here other than it being rather small it's not backlit of course and yougot your Netflix button there because Netflix paid to put that button on thereI'd love to see how much money they've paid over the years to get these buttonsenabled on it so that is it for the hardware pretty simple stuff here whatwe're gonna do now is hook up my display and we'll see what you can do with thisplayer so here is the main menu of your blu-ray player not a lot to look at herekind of a Spartan interface but there are a few apps you might already havethese apps on your fancy new television but if you don't they're on here and youshould be able to gain access to some of the more popular video services outthere you can also gain access to your blu-ray discs here this is for your USBDrive if you have one plugged in this is a mirror casting feature where you canscreen mirror a PC or an Android device to the player so if you want somethingon here really quickly in a wireless fashion you can do that there isn't muchto choose from on the app front though you can see it's a very limited appselection you also have the ability to play things over the network with themedia server application here which I will show you in detail injust a second the Netflix experience I found to be pretty good it does playbackHDR video properly along with the 4k stuff the issue though I was runninginto with this is that every time you change something on the menu the screenblanks out and then it loads up the trailer that runs in line with the menuhere and if I switch to Star Trek Voyager here for example the same thingwill happen it'll go blank and then the trailer begins once again so I thinkthis might be the video mode switching on the player which is what I want it todo and it's going out of a menu and switching to some video and it must beadjusting the framerate or something so they've got to work on that a little bitbut once the video is up and running everything I found was working just fineon it Amazon Prime video looks the same as it does on other devices HDR wasn'tworking for me though on prime video YouTube was fine same interface as we'veseen on everything else and it appeared to work as I expected it to it even at4k at 60 Hertz so if you lack a good YouTube client or a good any one ofthese clients this might be a good supplement for that now I was surprisedthat this player handles blu-ray mkv files over the network better than theoppo did as we saw in the original video the oppo would take an exceptionallylong period of time to spin those movies up and they were often freezing and notworking correctly so far this one's been a little bit better at least with the1080p stuff so I can go into that little media playback application itimmediately found all of the available DLNA media sources on my network ifyou've got one of these newer network-attached storage devices like aWD my cloud or a Synology they all have DLNA servers built in and you can seejust how quickly over the Ethernet network it's able to browse what's goingon there so I'm going to go pick out a Star Wars movie here real quick and loadthat up and see how it works now I'm finding that generally it's taking aboutanywhere from 20 to 45 seconds for one of these movies to spin up here so if wego and look at my least favorite movie here attack of the clones you'll seeyou'll get this little spinning wheel here for a biton the oppo this thing went on forever this one will hopefully come up a littlebit quicker than that it is switchingthe player into 24p mode for these movies and it's passing over thelossless audio too so all those things have been good but you will have to waita little bit for these movies to come up by comparison when we were on the Nvidiashield with Plex or with Kodi these movies spin up immediately so there is alittle bit of a lag here to get the movie started but once it does start itseems to be playing back as I would expect it to so I don't think it's areplacement for my Nvidia shield by any stretch but it could be a goodsupplement if I don't have an extra one available or something or you just don'twant to have to go through the process of buying additional boxes this shouldat least do your blu-ray 1080p rips ok the issue though I'm having with it iswith the 4k blu-ray rips those are locking the player up completely to thepoint where I had to unplug it and plug it back in so I think 1080p is about thebest you're gonna do with your blu-ray rips here but it does do a better jobthan the Oppo did with them so not too bad on that front let's take a look nowat playing discs the old-fashioned way so we are now ready for disc playbackand I can take out my blu-ray here of the Star Wars movie and pop that in Idon't have a Dolby vision display but this did work just fine upstairs on myOLED television it switched in the Dolby vision mode properly my other non Dolbyvision movies worked just fine as well it switched into that proper color spaceso it does all the switching just fine here I was really quite pleased withthat now this monitor here although a 4kmonitor is not an HDR monitor but the player here is converting the HDR videoto non HDR here on the display so things are looking fine so if you have a 4k TVbut don't have the HDR capability the movies won't look all that distortedthey won't look ideal but they will certainly look better than they would ifit didn't have that ability to convert back down to a standard color space so Iwas pleased to see that too out of a relatively inexpensive player here nowif you get this player and you don't get Dolby vision right away there's a coupleof things that you have to do the first is connect it up to the internet so thatyou can get your update downloaded for that Dolby vision supportbecause it wasn't on many of these players up until about a few weeks agoso I'm guessing there's a lot out in the channel that still don't yet have thiscapability so the first thing you want to do is go into your setup menu and runthe software update it'll download I think two or three different files ittakes about five or ten minutes for it to conduct that update and once it'sdone you'll be good to go now once you get the update and reboot you need to goover to your screen settings and in here you'll have the option to turn on Dolbyvision output that is off by default mainly because most people don't haveDolby vision TVs apparently so you'll need to turn that on specifically to getit to work but you don't have to turn it off if the movie doesn't support it I'mfinding it switches into the proper modes depending on what the movie hasbut if you so somehow I wanted to watch the Star Wars movie in HD are ten andnot in Dolby vision you will need to disable that feature first but for anymovie that supports HDR and not Dolby vision it will correctly switch into HDRso I'm finding in my experience so far that the Dolby vision HDR looks betterthan the standard HDR 10 so for me I have just left this setting on and anymovie that supports that Dolby vision is going to get it on my TV set here theother thing I suggest adjusting here is the 24p output mode what I found herefor the data content was that if it was switched to off because I was streamingsome stuff over my network I wanted it to switch into that mode so I turned iton auto for that and the same went for the network content so I moved that overto auto so that I could get that 24p mode to play back on here so just twosettings here that I think you need to do to get the best performance out ofthe player and you'll be good to go it is a very quiet player there's no fan onit the disc is a little bit noisier than the Oppo player was but in listening tomy movie with the player across the room for me I really didn't hear it operatingso I think you won't have any real interruption of your entertainment herewith the player running so I have to say I am quite pleased with this purchaseprobably should have started here first but in fairness the Dolby vision supportwasn't yet available for this player when I first embarked on this journeythis firmware update just came out over the last maybe week or two so it's goodto now have that capability I can play back my dolby vision movies the way Iwant and I didn't break the bank to get there there is a player I believe thatcosts a little less than this one from Philips that one is about 175 dollars onAmazon right now it also has the dual HDMI output for those of you that havethe older receivers it also has optical audio out too I haven't tried that oneso I can't comment on its video quality versus this one but I would imagine it'sprobably going to be pretty close I did hear it's a little more Spartan thanthis one is so you might want to take a look at that one if another 15 dollarsis important to the budget there but overall again with this $200 player Ithink it's going to be just fine for most people who are in a similarsituation to me where they don't need the best but they need something decentand this is certainly decent so I think that's gonna do it at the moment for thehome theater series I am sure I'll be diving into it more as some of theNvidia shield updates come out and we get better color switching and whatnotso we'll be coming back to this but I think for the moment at least from a hardwarestandpoint I have everything I need right now but I would love to get somefeedback from all of you on some maybe new topics to cover that I didn't coverin the course of the other videos so let me know down in the comments below andwe'll keep this little series going here over the course of the year until nexttime this is Lon Seidman thanks for watching this channel is brought
