This was $100 at Best Buy the last few weeks. Actually it was the one above this.

1.) This is a bad product. Poor build quality. Extremely loud/noisy when reading discs.
2.) No Dolby Vision, not powerful enough for a firmware update to include it.
3.) Sound is subpar.

Avoid.

Agreed with last comment.
No disrespect to the OP but crap usually sells for less.
This 4K was built for budget buyers and they don't care about quality
if 4 people buy this at this price who would have passed on paying 450.00 for their high end unit....they still come out ahead.

Be leery of cheap electronics. Usually there is a reason.

Those sound like similar complaints that some have made about the UP970 - $149.99 on Blk Friday but it has been $139.99 & $129.99 on sales at Frys. This last one allowed some shipping before going to in-store only.

The UP970 seems to have fixed 1.) after April 2017,
About 2.) for the UP970 they have been pretty tight lipped about what the problem is (why they pulled the Dolby Vision update) people are assuming it's CPU horsepower but it may not be.
3.) sound is rated by some lesser than the Sony UBP-X800

I feel like I can't decide between the UP970 and the Sony UBP-X800 even if I were to get the UP970 from Fry's for $129.99. It has the outputs that I want to a T (dual HDMI & optical out) - Sony has dual HDMI & old RCA style Digital out only no optical. Sturdier case for the Sony but that doesn't mean much since I would never stack anything on a component - so as long as they fixed the drive noise.

Sony 2017 - UBP-X800 no chance for working Dolby Vision, with LG there still is and I have an OLED TV so I want that if possible. Although 2018 may be a better year for that hope if it does turn out to be a Player CPU processing issue.

NOW TAKING DONATIONS!!!! NOT PICKY WILL KINDLY ACCEPT A UBP-X800 or UP970. If getting rid of it I'd even take a 2016 Samsung K8500. wave Stick Out Tongue
