Are there any 4k UHD blu ray rentals out there?

Or all must buy only
Rida Video Center as mentioned in my earlier post.

You can either buy from Poh Kim rather expensive at $49.90
which comes with standard Blu ray.
Or can rent from Rida Video Centre Coronation Shopping Plaza.
For those taking MRT, nearest is Botanic Garden.

For Rida they do sell both 4K Ultra HD
as well as rental. Really a lot of 4K Utra HD from US while some
are local 4K.

Any title you need if they don't have, they can bring it in for you.
Do support original disc.

Has anyone done any comparative test in quality between Xbox one S and the so called Pro players like Oppo, Sony and Panasonic?


Any difference in quality? The Xbox is so cheap and easily available on Singapore compared to all the rest.

Just take note that Xbox doesn't have atmos/dts-x Bitstream.

I am told the oppo 203 is quite bad. Maybe the movie is jerky or the audio has problem. X box one S is not spectacular but it is cheap and stable.

I have the Sony X800 and it is super good. Lol!

Oppo - $980 CMI
Sony - US$240 rated 5 star in What hifi
Xbox one S - $300+. For the price quite steady

Any links to the negative reviews of the Oppo 203?

Twice I have requested Sony SG on their facebook
as well as others to bring in the X800 since March this year.
Twice they have turn down such request proably due to SG market
trend they decide not to bring it in.

You can try ask Sony SG since I fail, if they don't give you a
proper answer better off just buy from Amazon US.
In March. Maybe probably too early. Just recently about 2 months ago. I went to sony Asia website and could see the product x800 is listed there as "available soon". If singapore could get a Z9D 100 inch TV. I don't understand why a x800 ultra bluray player being dropped by Sony sg.

Same thoughts here, Sony have been pushing their 4K TV
so why don't bring in X800 to complete the experience?
That I also argue with them when they reply back to me
that they won't bring it in.

I also told them most 4K TV are bundle with PS4 pro
which isn't a 4K UHD player just a standard Blu ray player
but with 4K output capability.

Just an update, thanks to winningeleven .
I have send a email to Sony SEA Division for the UBP-X800.
Their reply is somewhat different from what I get,
they mentioned the product have not launched yet in SG.

I will double confirm with them whether is it true or not.
And a suggestion to either have a product interest register or
let them know how many customers want to buy this player.

Import from US, the downside is no warranty and you need
a stepdown transformer.
If somehow they know that there is a demand, hopefully
they will bring in eventually.

I wrote to them last month and they say it won't be in SG. I doubt they will bring over. An example is the UHP-H1. It has been launch for almost 1.5 years in US but not available in SG

IF the rest of the asian countries such hong kong , taiwan have already getting the sony x800 und player. Then it is still possible SG wont have the chances to get it.

I have checked Sony japan. Yes. retail at 44800 yen

Sony HK - No
Sont taiwan - No
