I guess I have not much choice but to go with the x700 if I need a 4k bluray player with at least local region dvd support. Not comfortable with the amazon.sg sellers and shipping in from overseas loses the local dvd support. It's a pity Panasonic doesn't bring in their range of 4k players - they seem quite ideal

I was or still in the same position as u..

There are some who had bought the region/,code free BD/DVD Sony set from Amazon but I still have my reservations in buying a unit from oversea.
The x700 met my 4k and SACd needs while my faithful but dying pioneer universal player can still play back my DVD collection.

Currently I am on the look out for any multi region DVD player below $100.
I had tried Courts Mega store but they only have sony set Which is code locked.
good choice

i think Sony is clearing x700

maybe to bring in x800 which is an heavier version of x700.

I'll probably suggest to keep with what you have and wait till the true 120p players come out. At 60p... there are real blurs in quick action scenes and sports.

Still running my BDP LX55 on LGC7 Panel, can't really tell much diff between 4k and 1k at the moment.
2.3m exact.
Was using netflix for 4K content movies then to a/b ahhaha

I'm a bit confused... if we should let the job of upscaling the resolution of a blu ray disk that we're playing to the tv itself rather than the blu ray player.. then why do ppl still get 4K blu ray players?

You're obviously not using 4k discs as a source...

Oh ok. So is it there are 2 types of 4K BR players - 1 type only upscales non-4K BR discs to 4K and the other type is able to play 4K BR discs (which means really showing u true 4K)?

Non-4K BR discs are Full HD resolution only is it?
