    I'm finally ready to jump to 4K for physical media (I've had it on my TV for awhile).

    Can anyone recommend a good model?

    My finances are limited, and I don't want to go over $300. Preferably less.

    The three most affordable choices, all considerably under $300:

    LG 90
    Philips 7502
    Sony X700

    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.

    Best Buy does have a Magnavox MBP-6700P 4K player for $129. The reviews seem to be good on it.

    Thanks. I'm going with the Sony X700. Best user reviews.

    I just hope that the remote control will also control my current Sony Blu-ray player. For a little while, I may use both together to test 1080 vs 4K.

    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.
