The three most affordable choices, all considerably under $300:
They all do HDR and Dolby Vision, do great with upscaling DVDs and Blu-rays, and offer two or more apps.
The Panasonic 820 is also a full-featured player, but it's more than you want to spend.
If Costco is an option, they'll have an LG player on special for BF ($140).
No, much to my exasperation. I still have my Philips which also has Dolby Vision, but I like the information the Sony provides when you hit "Display." I wish the Philips had kept the information window from the 7501 model when they upgraded to the 7502.Has Sony added an auto mode for Dolby Vision on the x700 yet?
Stay very far away from that player - I've read that it has more lockups than the Sony's. It also required a wired connection for firmware updates, and has NO streaming options. It also has only one HDMI output, so if your receiver is not HDCP 2.2 compliant, you are out of luck, especially since it apparently has no other audio outputs.Best Buy does have a Magnavox MBP-6700P 4K player for $129. The reviews seem to be good on it.
