At the end of the day, physical disk is king:

1. Unparalleled PQ and AQ.
2. Additional bonus content on disc vs streaming's scant bonuses (if any)
3. No reliance on high speed internet
4. A tangible product that you can display in your media library
5. You own the content vs streaming's unlimited "rental" since it relies on digital rights, which can be revoked by the studio at anytime. "Buying" movies from providers like Amazon Prime, Vudu, Google Play, etc. flat-out say you don't OWN the movies or TV series you buy, you're paying for unlimited access.
A Blu-ray's realistic bitrate is 45mbps but can max at 48. Netflix's max bitrate for their 4K content is about 16mbps. That's almost 3x more information provided PER second. That info isn't unused on high quality systems. On a $200 4K TV with a $100 soundbar or just TV speakers, are you going to notice a difference? Probably not for the person that thought that setup was good enough. On my 110" 4K HDR projection screen with 7.2.4 surround sound that I'm building? You betcha.
You get the best video and audio quality from a disc, and there's no need to rely on an internet connection.

This does not support Dolby Vision, however it does supports its competing HDR format: HDR+.

It's funny how supporting HDR + only is a negative

It is a negative because almost every manufacturer except Samsung has adopted Dolby Vision. Samsung is being cheap like always and not willing to pay the price for DV.

The ub420 has some sort of HDR Tone mapping that is supposedly good for people who have projectors.

Was debating between this and the other $100 Panasonic one, but decided to get this one.

For me, the reliability and overall quality of the Panasonic unit makes this one better than the Sony X700.

The only real upside to the X700 over the UB420 is Dolby Vision support. But, in my case, the projector I am going to be pairing this with doesn't support Dolby Vision so I'm going with the Panasonic.

Just curious, why are people still buying Blu-ray players (especially with a lot of streaming these days)? I bought one 2/3 years ago and may be used it couple of times. Am I missing something?
Picture quality (PQ) and sound is the main reason. Streaming will not get you the same PQ.

No Dolby vision on physical movies so no it's not better.
