This companion server to the XBR65 makes for some really excellent 4K images, although some of the pre-packed films do not look any better than the Blu-ray equivalent, so that is disappointing. The control of the server (from TV remote) is a bit sluggish in changing the screen image, and slow in getting the counter display for running time before it disappears from screen. The HDMI(1) carries video and audio and must be connected directly to the #4 input (modified on my) XBR. There is a second HDMI(2) for audio only, but selecting it removes audio from (1) ....so SONY if you build a TV with superior sound (which it has) why can't you make audio available at both HDMI outputs simultaneously? Is this something possible for a future update? Overall, the FMP X1 brings the 4K television full circle, now bring on the programming!

I just received the FMP-X10 last night from Sony and I am very disappointed. First, the free content they provide is fairly worthless (short documentaries, clips and trailers)...seems like they could have at least provided a movie given the price paid. Second, the unit has to directly connect to your TV eliminating your ability to use your receiver as the central control hub for your entertainment system (I have Sony's current flagship receiver the $2,100 DA5800ES which has a 4K input and it doesn't even allow me to feed and control the 4k stream through their latest and greatest device!..not sure what you would use the 4k input on this receiver for if it doesn't even work for Sony equipment!). Lastly (and most disappointing), only a few of the movies (and not the good ones) provided on the Sony Entertainment Network are available for rent versus purchase. So to access any meaningful content you will need to spend $30+ for each item!! For those prices they should have provided the player for $100. I am seriously considering sending this unit back to Sony :o(

nice device, limited, costly 4K media

By 

from 34685

Comments about Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player:

The device works well, but the choice of movies in 4K is very sparse, and the cost is ridiculous. There is little available from other sources. There is no discount for older movies. No coupons. Maybe my investment in a 65" Sony Ultra HDTV and media player and surround sound and tower speakers and 4K receiver wasn't worth it. Also, the device won't feed video through my new Sony 4K receiver, due to new security "improvements!" So I have to jump through hoops to wire the audio output to my receiver, the video output to a second HDMI port on my Ultra HDTV, and go through weird gyrations to change inputs on my TV just to use the media player. I spent a lot of $$$ and time so I would be able to only need to use one device, my Sony receiver, to select all sources, which should feed through only one HDMI output to my TV. But NOOOOO, Sony doesn't want my life to be easy.

May Not Work With Your 4K TV!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player:

Please Sony, make this work with Vizio 4K TVs, I get a beautiful picture but no sound! It obviously was never tested with the many 4K sets before updating your webpage for this product to indicate support for non-Sony 4K TVs that are HDCP 2.2 compliant. I have tried 2 FMP-X10's and both refuse to play sound! I purchased this mainly to watch my Sony AX-33 4K XAVC S home videos - but no sound! I wanted to save my home 4K content on the hard drive and erase my SDXC cards for re-use. Now, I am back to having to play them from the camera connected directly to one of my TV's HDMI ports to get them with sound. They even fail to play sound back if I connect my AX-33 camcorder to the front USB port of the X10. Great picture - no sound! No files play with sound...not h.264, h.265 (HEVC), AVCHD, XAVC S or even the sample MP3 music files under the Music Player App! Picture is great - but no sound on any of 5 HDMI 2,0 ports including 3 that are HDCP 2.2 compliant. Please fix the bug. All of my HDMI ports work fine with other devices including my AX-33 4K camcorder.

A Pay-Per-View Box

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player:

First, this is a box to rend / buy movies from. It is proprietary and therefore will have no long term support. Second - It has extremely small mount of supported formats. Which means a lot of what you have video wise is probably not going to play on here. Third - It's network cable interface / ethernet port is almost 15 years obsolete. I cant even remember the last time i saw 10/100 in a NEW device. This would be like buying a brand stereo for your car advertised as top of the line and it has only AM and a DIAL:) Fourth - This has two USB 2.0 sockets. This is like buying a new car with two speakers. One for the front and WOW:) One for the rear!:) Fifth - This is a device that was designed by someone sitting in an office who doesn't really know anything about this type of thing or really use this type of device. You can do much better with an Android XBMC player like: Minix New X8 Plus or the Minix Neo X8-H

Really a future tool that you can start using toda

By 

from Wakefield RI

Comments about Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player:

This may not seem essential, but if you wish to build a personally controlled library of 4k or HD movies, this storage device will be a good start. The capacity is good enough, software is decent, and the cost is reasonable.

Great Buy

By 

from Des Moines, IA, USA

Comments about Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player:

I had this TV for a week now, and I love everything about it. 4K picture is better than what I expected. I love the upscaling to 4k of my Blue Ray movies and cable channels. The 3D was great watching "Transformers, Age of Destruction". looking forward to renting 3D movies as they are available. It was easy to setup and very intuitive. I bought the 49 inch model and it fits perfectly in my small living room. Another plus is the video camera as I will be using Skype to chat with my friends in the west cost. This TV is feature rich and for $ 1399 the XBR-49x850B was well within my budget.

Extremely slow downloads

By 

from 20817

Comments about Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player:

I have a 130MBps internet connection (well above your average internet speed) and a Gigabit Ethernet router, yet the best download speeds I could get when downloading a movie from the Sony entertainment network was at most 24Mbps with a wired LAN. This is very disappointing. I found out the media player dos not have a Gigabit LAN (it has a fast Ethernet instead), and it is restricting download speeds in my system dramatically. I can't believe that Sony has not installed a Gigabit Ethernet on the media player knowing how much information needs to be transferred with 4k content. A 40 minute Blacklist episode took 1:30hs to download, despite having state of the art internet and router. Quite disappointing for such an expensive player! Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy the beautiful picture and quality of 4k content, but this media player is not up to what it should do at this price.

Excellent when it works

Comments about Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player:

Vey limited movie, but the quality of the picture is excellent. However, something the TV will say not recognize the 4K signal, need to restart the TV or the 4K player to fix it.
