Agreed on this point. Was hoping to replace my Samsung UBD-M7500 with this one, but actually think that will be my "daily driver" with the Sony in the rack strictly for Dolby Vision discs. Upside of that configuration - no switching in and out of DV manually anymore!

So I am having massive freezing issues with this player, and I am having it on multiple disks, some are brand new from wrapping to player. I looked up this issue online and it seems this is a widespread problem with this player. Sony knows about it and isn't doing anything. Am I missing anything such as fixes or things to change? Very frustrated as I am out of the return period and very disappointed with this, it makes movies unwatchable.

Anyone with the X700 getting weird stuttering on every cut during a movie in Dolby Vision? Watching Black Panther on my Vizio V505-G9 and every time one shot cuts to another, there’s a slight but noticeable frame or two that stutters before the next shot. Watching the same in Vudu doesn’t give that issue.

Guys, your advice if you please; i've got the samsung ubd-k8500 with the latest firmware dating back to april last year, and am giving serious consideration to buying the X700, but need to know if it's going to be worth the image upgrade. The K8500 presents a clean, sharp image with no stutter, and my screen (Samsung MU7070) doesn't do Dolby Vision.

Is it worth the upgrade?

Hang on to it until it dies and get Panasonic UB820 when it’s time to replace your player.

Picture wise about the same for me, the Sony does have the auto resolution setting which is nice but I wouldn't change for that. I got the X700 for the DV only

Every time I pop into this thread I hear issues about freezing. I have only played a handful of UHD discs so far in my player which I got for Christmas but man, these posts make me real nervous. So far I haven't had any issues other than a hard freeze when I was going back and forth on a disc while playing with settings - that froze the player and I had to unplug it to reset it. I wonder if it's the discs, the players, or just the format that causes so many issues with stuttering? Maybe these players can't sustain such a high bitrate without drops/stuttering? That or a tiny spec of dust or a hairline scratch is enough to render a UHD disc useless due to picky players. Either way, that's not good for a new format.

What's the downside to leaving Dolby Vision turned on, even for movies without DV?

It's been discussed a lot previously, but the short version is it's going to screw up the brightness and color balance.

I have a sony receiver that my x700 is plugged through. The receiver doesn’t have a dv feature only hdr and 4k pass through, my question is can it pass dv from the x700 to my dv enabled television?

I would just go straight to the TV with the 1 of the X700 outputs and use the second output for the sound to the receiver.

But to answer the question about the receiver, do a google search for your receiver model and see if it mentions it can pass the DV signal through. Good Luck.

I was one of the lucky ones so far. There is a thing going on where manufacturers are doing products tampering.There is a class action law suit on Microsoft with the X-BOX .Before an update the product works great,then after the update the unit bricked and in some cases little things happened where the player doesn't perform quite the same as before. There is enough proof so it is in the courts. Sony is also accused of product tampering with there TV'S of a few years ago the 930 F or E doesn't perform like before the update. Colors are washed out etc and the TV looks like crap. Why would these companies do this to there customers? In the case of Microsoft they want you to upgrade to the X-BOX 1. In the case of Sony they want you to upgrade to a 2019 TV . I know many will say hog wash but Corporations these days have no moral center built in to there business model so they can do anything short of selling there own Mothers for profit. Guy's if your player or TV is performing the way it should don't do updates disconnect your player from the internet. This freezing issue in most cases happened after the Dolby Vision update and Sony doesn't seem interested in fixing it. They also have a new 4K blu-ray player coming out soon that looks just like the X800 but has Dolby Vision, but no HDR10+????

FWIW I had the LG UBK90 and had non stop freezing problems with that player. Exchanged it for the Phillips bdp-7502. Been a happy customer ever since!

Not to add insult to injury, but I wanted to chime in on the freezing issue. Iíve had my X700 for 6 months now and havenít had any issues w/freezing. Not one. Iíve never had it connected to Internet as Iíve always used the tvís internal apps for streaming.

Have had my since last June and itís been a almost daily workhorse. I have only experienced two issues with 4K discs, once last night when it stuttered at the 2 hour mark in 2001 and once during A Quiet Place during the red lights portion. I could not repeat these minor errors as those problem areas played fine after a restart. Iíve encountered no issues playing Blus. I have not played a DVD at this time.

FYI Iím not DV capable and it is wired connected to the internet (donít really know why as I donít use the apps)
