Serious question .. At this point in price why not just go with one of the Xbox One, or PS4 deals?

First off PS4 or the pro version can't play physical 4K blu ray disc. Second Xbox one X can't play physical 4K Dolby vision disc, only steaming via Netflix or vudu when available. So that's why many people would prefer a stand alone 4K player that can do some of those things out the box for those that are serious about picture quality and or audio at least. 3rd none of the current consoles sell at $148 brand new at a retail store. unless any of can post a link to one that dose.

Only correction here, audio isn't a factor, since Dolby Vision is an HDR competitor, AFAIK.
For serious audio, you dive into the realm of receivers/amplifiers and speakers.

One factor to take into account is how complicated you want your movie watching process to be.
Maybe I haven't set it properly, but popping in a disc in my Xbox One X doesn't auto play.

The controller isn't exactly an intuitive remote either.

Who would pay $150 for a Blu-ray player? Damn. That's a new game console that can already do that.
12yrs. ago, when I bought my first ( Hitachi ) Full HD TV for $1,900, I paid $400 for my first ( Panasonic ) Blu-ray player ( w/a $100 "bundle" discount ). In '97, or '98 when DVD hit the market, the Sony player cost me $1,000.
$150 for a top 4K/UHD player is not too much to pay for a premium product. Esp. after I payed $180 just 2mos. ago.
If you desire to watch a disc and can really see the difference on your screen then this is the way to go.
Screens such as those found on notebook and desktop computers need not apply to this application.
We are talking Home Theater.

I own Sony 930. This does Dolby Vision but WITH this player only as far as I understand.

I currently have Xbox One X and that has been my player. I only want to spend $150 if it's worth it for picture quality, I'm not bothered by using Xbox controller as a remote, so that's not something I worry about.

Any advice from people?

I'm still living in 1080p land. How much 4K content is there? I've been wanting to make the jump but can't justify a new TV and player.

4K isn't the reason you upgrade, unless you're sitting 5' away from your TV. At 8'+, you'll be hard pressed to tell the difference.

HDR (such as Dolby Vision) and better sound (such as Dolby Atmos) make a huge difference though. But to benefit you would need to pair this player with a compatible TV that has good HDR support (TCL 6 series, Vizio M or P series, LG OLED, etc) for the visual boost, and an Atmos soundbar or receiver and speakers for the audio.

HDR content includes many UHD discs (practically everything new movie will have it, and many older movies are being re-released in HDR), as well as Netflix shows, and both Xbox One and PS4 support HDR for many games.

I feel that is a huge omission on Sony's part.

The PS3 was a media powerhouse and was recommended as a great Blu-ray player alone, in addition to its streaming and gaming capabilities. It even had a great remote (the second version). I can't believe they dropped the media ball with the PS4.

If the PS4 Pro had a Dolby Vision UHD drive, I would have probably bought it.

Xbox one s now supports Dolby vision, just noticed it under settings on my box. I play blu-ray and 4k blu-ray and they look great even though my Samsung TV doesn't support Dv.
