My kinda machine!
I had this now for nearly a month. I've been a home theatre audio/video nut job since 1990. I remember when Blu Ray first came out. I was working @ Tweeter in Dallas Texas. It was a a Pioneer that we got first. They took what seemed like forever to load a disc? Those days are long gone with this Sony UPB-X1100 ES! It loads ridiculously fast! It is super responsive and plays just about anything you can throw at it? I've only found 1 type of format that it doesn't support, and that is HDCD. Many of you will not even know what that is, so don't concern yourself @ all. It was a format was used on just a few thousand cd titles that basically remastered the album and gave it a MUCH more lush PRESENCE!! If you have never heard one, try to find a way to do so! Moving on, this player throws an amazing image on my new Sony Bravia X950H 65 inch tv! The sound quality is very impressive using my Denon AVR 5803 with the full suite of JBL STUDIO 590'S, 530'S and the matching centre channel. Throw in the SVS SB-3000 subwoofer and, well, you gave visual/audio nirvana! The streaming in this thing is just nutz? STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS! But I am pushing 866 mbps, so I'm sure that helps? Throw in a 3 year warranty and you CANNOT go wrong!! Since OPPO and Samsung has bowed out, this is as good as a machine as you can get!! I'm EXTREMELY HAPPY with my purchase!! I believe you will be too!

SACD misleading
I spent the extra money to get this highly rated 4K DVD player from Sony. The main reason for the upgrade was to get the ability to play SACD’s(super audio). What they don’t tell you is that your receiver must also be able to play SACD’s. The music does come through but it’s terrible. I could go on but I won’t.

No video out-or-the box!
I finally replaced my ancient BDP-S1 with a UBP-X1100ES, S/N 7011911-6, on Thursday, 10/14/2020. I couldn't perform "Easy Setup" because there was no video output! I had to remove the sticker over HDMI-2 and plug my HDMI cable into it to get video. A message similar to the following appeared:

HDMI-1 is video only
HDMI-2 is audio only

I then moved my HDMI cable back to HDMI-1 and proceeded with "Easy Setup". Others may have returned the unit when they discovered no video. I suspect that this issue is the result of a software error in the latest firmware update. No update was offered, so I assume the latest update is installed.

Other than that, the unit appears to work perfectly. I tried CDs, DVDs, SACDs and BDs and all were ready to play instantly and did so flawlessly. The same is true for AVCHD videos and pictures that I have stored on my file server.

I am unable to test the 4K features because I only have a 2K Bravia.

Overall, I am very pleased with the performance of the unit.

I am very pleased with the unit.

The player with the most versatility in the market
The cleanest resolution on all media: Not only on CDs and SACDs, but on DVD-Audio, Blue Ray-Audio and...WAV files of all resolutions: from 48 to 192 kHz!!!
I am an audiophile and I became such a fan of this product; that I bought this second unit after 10 days from purchasing the first one!

"Best" Players Only Average Without Slo mo & Zoom
As many have long enjoyed from DVD players, wide range slow motion and zoom on the fly control can provide a more varied and intimate connection with visual content. Sadly, thanks to locks imposed by the Blu-Ray Association's BD authoring software (Java BD-J) and licensing that forces compliance on hardware player brands, these slow motion and/or zoom features are disabled when playing most BDs. Even worse, with very rare exceptions most current BD player models have no slow motion and zoom controls at all, denying users such functionality even with DVD playback.

The Pioneer UDP-LX500 is the only exception. It also has variable audio level remote control of its stereo outputs and many other features, though it sells for nearly twice the price of Sony's best BD player model. However, as zoom and slow motion are essential features I reluctantly purchased it. And most importantly, unlike the excellent Oppo players, the LX500 allows the user to move the zoomed image to center any part of it on the screen-just like my JVC XV-NA70BK DVD player can from 2004.

I will likely be looking for a BD player next year to build a second home theater system.
Hopefully, Sony will then have a BD player with "on the fly" 5-step zoom and 4-step slow motion control, movable zoomed image control and variable audio level remote control of its stereo outputs.

The 4K DVD players do not work
I have both an 800 and an 1100 player and both of them skip and jump and get hung up when playing 4K movies. I have this problem with at least 85% of my disk even new disk and when I put the disk in my Denon player it plays fine without any issues.

100Mb wired network? Really Sony?
I understand that you want to leverage between high and low end players, but putting a 100Mb wired controller on this unit really doesn't cut it Sony. I have 4k files I stream that barf on wired and play fine one wireless. Not acceptable.

Amazing resolution and clarity.
This is quite a substantial piece of equipment with some really impressive technology that really makes your images and audio quite superior. I was initially amazed at the weight and sturdiness of the assembly, this thing is really solid and not much about it seems cheap or flimsy. It has more than the inputs and outputs in a variety of formats than I can use with the other equipment I have it hooked up to. I am currently not using a Sony TV or Sound system but it appears that if I were, the setup would be even more seamless.
Sony's up scaling technology has never been anything but the best. There are no disappointments here, even with DVD's trans-coded to single layer low res copies of dual layer HD DVD's or blue ray disks, still got a really acceptable picture. Drop in a Blu Ray disk and the results are stunning, drop in a 4k UHD and the results are spectacular.
Start up was seamless, plug in your cables, hook up your LAN cable, plug it in and turn it on. It finds your network, logs on, downloads any updates and you are ready to go.
It does start out very good with the default settings and then gives you a lot of options to further tune up your video and audio settings to customize your setup for optimum performance for the other components you have it connected to. This did take some time but was accomplished with a bit of trial and error to really tune it in to my preferences, and I accomplished this while watching a pile of movies without any real issues and was able to return to my films easily to see the results of my tune up changes or easily go back to change or reset them.
It was apparent very early on that this player is customized for a professional installer who can set it up to an exact set of specs for their equipment's specifications, the player does have additional inputs that I don't have the equipment to access their functions. If you would like to go down that path there are lot of vendors that can do this for you, a web search will help you find them.
I will say that setting it up myself so it looks really good for the way I want it to look and sound was not a big deal, and with little effort I have it tuned in to a really impressive playback machine.
It does have some options to access media from a USB input, a media server, and a few pre selected streaming services but a very limited selection, however this is a 4k UHD player and not a full blown media center and the disk player portion of this is amazing. The compatibility list of disk types and formats supported is extensive, I wasn't able to find a single disk in my collection that was not on the list.

The IR remote that comes with this player is truly my biggest disappointment with an otherwise excellent player. Cheesy build on the remote for this quality of the player, lame or non existent compatibility with my other devices. I was able to eventually figure out how to get it to sort of work with my TV but the only functions that I can access are volume, and power, I cannot access any of the functions on my AV receiver. It is not programmable and most of the functions that control the player are only accessible through the remote, the player doesn't have any buttons to push to access the player functions other than open/ close, on/off. So it's obvious that this machine is really engineered to be part of a home theater installation professionally installed and set up, and controlled by a proprietary remote or computer control system,
So not going that way for my setup, I now have a several remotes I need to use just to watch a disk. However my biggest concern is that if the cheesy remote that shipped with a spectacular player fails, the player is basically dead as well.
I also spent some time verifying the compatibility of the disk types listed in the specifications and played every type and format I had available, including some DVD's and Blu Rays that I burned that failed. These were known bad disks that on my previous Sony Blu Ray player would stop playing, occasionally with an error message, I could then eject the disk, put in another and continue.
This player on the other hand just crashes completely, locks up, none of the buttons on the remote or the player have any response. The only fix I found was to unplug the player for a short time and when I plugged it back in everything worked normally. This thing also locked up after a power outage and the power came back on after several on and off events. The player was locked up solid, but again unplugging and re plugging corrected that.

It's hard to understand how this player is in the under $1000.00 category. When evaluated against players in the above 1K range it compares well to them for build and output.
It is solidly built, looks professional, offers a large array of options to help tune in your images to your exact liking, plays a huge variety of disk types and formats and makes them look really amazingly sharp and clear.
Playback of a 4k UHD disk is stunning, and the up-scaling of lower resolution formats makes them look superior to any of my other players.
The quality of the build and the quality of the image surpassed my expectations significantly. This is a great player, well worth the price and the build quality leads me to believe that what I see on the outside carries over to the really important parts inside as well.

Can regular Blu ray disk can in this player??
Gregory M on Feb 9, 2020
  Yes. The Sony UBP-X1100ES will play a number of popular formats.
Is this locked to Regions A and 1?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2019
  If the unit is locked up you can unplug from the wall for 30 seconds so the micro processor can reset itself.
This doesn't play true 4k blurays?
