Before purchasing from Amazon - check out best buy.ca the link is here --> https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/sc-3082/4k ... ortDir=asc

The reason Amazon dropped their prices might be because i cancelled two of my orders and mentioned them that their prices are higher than BB. Also told the customer rep on chat and he was like - sorry but i cannot cancel your order as its preparing for shipment. I said no problems, i will return it once it arrives. Then he asked me the place where it was cheaper and i gave him the link.. maybe they have got a few cancellations.. :)

Ordered Ant Man and the Wasp. BTW, the 4K version is listed twice on that Blu-ray.com list for Amazon.ca, at both $22.99 and $26.99. IIRC, it was close to the same price recently, but I figured I may as well get it to watch during the holidays.
I just realized the $22.99 version had the bilingual cover while the $26.99 version yesterday was the English cover. I am not a fan those bilingual covers, and today the English is the same $22.99.

I've attempted to cancel the order.

Mind you, the problem with the English covers is sometimes the distributors put bilingual stickers on them, which is much worse.

BTW, for both those entries, nowhere does it say in the description it is 4K. It just says Blu-ray. However, the cover says 4K, and there is a separate cheaper entry for the Blu-ray version. Amazon really needs to get clean up its listings.

I ended up grabbing the harry potter set, dark knight trilogy, bladerunner 2049, and martian extended. Hopefully I can sell off the digital codes to recoup some costs to order some more :D

Sony X800 ($299)
Sony X700 ($199)
Panasonic DMPUB300 ($148)
Panasonic DMPUB400 ($248)
Panasonic DPUB820K ($498)
Panasonic DMPUB900 ($498)

How is the PQ comparable between them and is the PQ at least decent?

They seem to be decent prices and I trust Sony over LG/Samsung of similar pricing.

TIA

Incase you didn't know already, all the panasonic models 300,400, 900 use the same video processor, so picture-wise they are exactly the same quality. I picked the 400 up (wanted the second hdmi out and wi-fi over the 300) for $198 and can say that UHD discs look amazing, and was pleasantly surprised with regular 1080p blu-ray upscaling as well.

Just picked up the X700 myself and really enjoying it (I too, prefer Sony over other brands). Someone posted a link in this thread earlier that compared different models and the X700 is apparently one of the best in its price range and is actually superior to the X800 (it came out later and has D Vision support).

X800 build quality is much better than the lightweight X700. I am happy with my X800. There isn't much DV material out there.

It looks like X700 is the best choice for me as I have an A1E TV so it will handshake properly for DV content.

Someone mentioned you have to turn on HDR manually?

Well it's not like you are constantly moving it or feeling it up every time you load up a movie. Having a metal enclosure or not does not affect it's playback performance or playback quality. Also there are over a hundred titles with DV

I guess or you could go Panasonic 820, or wait until next year for a Sony BD player that automatically switches between SDR, HDR10 and DV. Else if you go with the X700 and forget to toggle DV off, your regular movies will look overly bright or if you forget to toggle DV on while watching a DV movie, you don't get the full visual experience that the director intended. Then you would have to rewatch the movie again and remember to manually turn DV on

How does the Xbox One compare as a 4k bluray player vs these dedicated models above?

I have two XBox One X's. 4K UHD blu-rays look better on the XBox One X than the same movies streamed in 4K on my Apple 4K TV with Dolby Vision.
XBox One X has been patched to correct the incorrect colour decoding issues it had when it first launched.

I have not compared it to a dedicated high end 4K UHD Blu-ray player however.

So are these real 4k, or just upsampled garbage...?
