Anyone know what the best marketplace online is for used blu-rays?

Particularly Criterion releases, was trying to grab a few of my favourites but they're $30 on eBay at the least even used.

I've bought and sold stuff at Blu-ray.com and HighDefDigest.com. The BST sections of the forum are pretty good.

The 3D set is also on sale (1-4) but only 1 and 4 are in 3D.

We own multiple JP sets and watching those in 3D with a good surround are a vastly superior movie experience compared to the 4K collection. We also have the 4K of all the movies which are nice, but sadly often times there are certain scenes that pull you out due to original cg work.

My wife loves JP, so she needs to have every itteration ;)

It's not the screen size that's important, it's the seating distance. ...high end OLED set.
Chiming in late to be pedantic: It's both screen size / seating distance.

Agreed a pro calibrated OLED is a joy to watch.

Good deals I’m sure but I am so done with physical media. I have hundreds of DVD’s I practically can’t give away and haven’t watched in a decade or more. It kills me knowing that eventually I’ll throw them away.

DVDs were not that significant of an upgrade over the previous format.
Plus DVDs at 480p would look abysmal on any modern TV compared to a native 4K image.

4K UHD blu-rays are higher quality encodes than streaming 4K through Apple TV digitally through the internet.

For my favourite movies I often get the USA English only cover versions on amazon.com or ebay instead of the Canadian English/French bilingual packaged versions we get here.

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.
I have a Xbox one x and Panasonic 820. The Panasonic has way better picture imo. I just find the picture is clearer, brighter and more accurate with the Panasonic.

Beg to differ.

I felt that way when I got rid of my VHS collection.

How does the quality of 4k discs compare with the 4k rips you can find online?

I like Sony, but the X700/X800 don't even come close to the Panasonic UB900 (2017), or UB820/UB9000 (2018). Just my opinion though. Panasonic's chroma processing outputs near reference quality playback, which rivals the $1000+ Oppo 4K Blu-ray players.
It seems to depend on what you are using to view video. From what I've read on AVSforums, those with projectors find a huge improvement with the Panny. I personally have both the Sony x800 and Panny 820, feeding an LG B7 65" OLED... I find the Sony slightly outperforms the Panny (slightly deeper blacks/ contrast, slightly better colours), however the Sony has that infamous intermittent freezing problem... Never know when it will appear (was terrible on Incredibles 2 4k, but non-existent on MI Fallout 4k). As such my vote is for the Panny.
