Got my x800 delivered today.
The player built is really good, solid and heavy. Not sure the weight is from where?
But I can't play 4k on my TV, it shows hdr>sd on info page.
If you are buying from Amazon, please help me by clicking from the link    AMAZON USA  |  AMAZON UK

The chassis is solid bro. For vibration-resilience..
Did you manage to redeem the two free discs?
I thought the offer expired in Sept?

Haha, yeah man. A lot more better than the other players I have. The built totally doesn't look like entry level player.
This is my TV model Philips 65PFL9708 9000 Series, but player couldn't detect it's a 4k panel.

the downside is the front panel not even any LCD/indicator display. just a simple power led. the newer 1000ES will have display.  ;)

Heavy, well made piece of gear..
Very fast, it will ask you for an update once you start up..
I wonder if it will allow you to access Netflix USA, has anyone tried?

The player just arrived this evening, didn't expect it to reach so fast as i havent bought a stepdown voltage transformer. 

May i know which brand are you all using?  I saw super star and super seven brand in SLT, not sure which is reliable.

Bro,
Appreciate if you could share after you got the transformer. Looking for a relatively small and reliable one before I pull the trigger.
Thanks in advance!
