Comments about Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player:

While overpriced, required to watch 4k video. Requires direct LAN access, not wifi compatible. Long upload times, minimal storage, and overpriced digital download only. For the limited selection available, picture quality is outstanding.

    Comments about Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player:

    This is a great player. You need a fast internet connection, otherwise the load times can be painful. It is easy to set up. It has pretty good variety from Sony 4K and Video Unlimited. Just know 4k native films are hard to come by at present, but more to come. This player has many short clips that are impressive, but I would have liked to have 5 free 4K movies for the price. You need one if you want to enjoy your Sony 4K tv. I have a wireless accesspoint attached. Sony help desk did not know how to get me connected to wireless. They said it was not possible. You have to have an internet connection to use this device. It took me about 10 minutes, but I got it working. Sony help desk needs to re-train. All-in-all I give it 5 stars because the picture rocks and the player is very nice. A must have if you want quick access to all things 4K.

      Comments about Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player:

      Very good product once up and running, unfortunately their is significant challenges with HDMI conflicts. Had to replace all HDMI cables and even then had to remove devices to get it to work. Sony support very poor. I love their TVs and always get the latest but this device is not great and also very limited content.

          Comments about Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player:

          So at time of launch I purchased the Sony VPL-VW1000ES 4K mainly based on Sony demos showing 4K clips including The Amazing Spiderman. We were all told Sony was planning to release a 4K server which would allow us to see 4K on it. Well, over a year later the FMP-X1 is here and guess what? It is NOT compatible with the 1000ES! How fair is that? We invested in your new technology only to be left out. The 1000ES is $25,000! We have been waiting to see true native 4K movies which were demonstrated on it at all the shows. We are planning to buy a couple 4K TVs this fall but at this point they won't be Sony. It is not fair for you to change the rules as you go. There is going to be a 90% return rate of X1. This needs to be resolved immediately. Sony needs to support those that have supported them...
