The Sony UBP-X700 Ultra HD Blu-ray player is now available to buy online stores in USA and UK. This Sony 4K Blu-ray player was introduced last month at CES 2018, differs from the X800 and X1000 models due to a less edgy and even more minimalist design. The front and upper side portion has a glossy plastic finish, while the rest of the housing is made of rough plastic.
