From the manufacturer
Come home to a more immersive experience with 4K HDR playback, Dolby Atmos 3D surround sound and a design that’s optimized for custom home theater installations. Built for optimum video and audio performance, this universal player enhances playback on non-HDR TVs with HDR to SDR conversion, grants access to the latest 4K HDR streaming services7, and supports playback of almost any disc or file format including Hi-Res Audio.

1) Has access to many streaming services, including Netflix, Vudu, and YouTube.
2) When you install the optional app, you can also access a media server on your private home network with this device.
3) Apps load and respond quickly. Much more so than any previous player I've ever owned.
4) Disks also load and respond very quickly.
5) You can plug this player into a standard 1080P TV and still watch 4K disks. Naturally, the player is downgrading the signal in this case, but if you're trying to make the case on whether to purchase an expensive 4K TV or a new 4K player first, the backwards compatibility may help with that decision.
Things to keep in mind:
1) Be sure to immediately check for updates when you setup this machine.
2) While you can play a High Dynamic Range disk with this player, if it's hooked to a TV that isn't High Dynamic Range the video won't look too good (not horrible, but obviously not quality).
3) While the default output resolution is set to "AUTO", I noticed this player tended to default to 480P. I suspect this is because it is connected to a receiver instead of being directly connect to the TV, and so was unable to properly detect what the TV was capable of handling. This can be easily resolved by changing "AUTO" to the specific resolution you intend the TV to accept. Player allows you to specifically choose any resolution out there (480 720 1080 2160, both I and P).
Something not so great:
While watching a 4K disk, about 2/3's into the movie it appeared to have a tracking issue causing it to skip a minute or two of the movie. I could rewind and replay the same area without a problem, only to have it happen again a couple minutes later. Examination of the disk showed no visible imperfections. Upon resuming the movie, I had no further problems, though in retrospect I remember I had lowered the volume a bit. I haven't experimented with it, but I suspect the issue was the center speaker which is sitting on the same shelf right next to the 4K player. The part of the movie having the tracking issue was a particularly intense action sequence, and I think the amount of vibration produced by the center speaker was enough to prevent the laser from reading properly. If this is true, it's the first time any player I've owned has had that issue. I'll probably move the player to a different shelf to see if that helps, but that will take some time to think out given how many devices I have connected to my receiver. This blemished what would have otherwise been a 5 star review.
Now for the bad. The Netflix app will fairly frequently hang the system. You have to unplug the unit to restore operability. I also noticed that the setup menus will at times flicker and that makes setting options just about impossible. I wasn't sure if this was a hardware or a software problem so I'm returning the unit. I'm going to repurchase this model as soon as I receive a credit for the previous unit. If the problems clear up, then the hardware was probably damaged. If not, then it is probably a software glitch which Sony has been pretty good at fixing in the past. .
firmware and setup had to be done by connecting the player to the router via a lan and to a computer monitor with a hdmi.
turning off all video signal tweaking, selecting the display from TV to projector (got the jvc x770), turning off unneeded features, and setting all else to auto. likewise, i setup the receiver to pass through the video signal without modification to the projector. so now all video signal tweaking/modification is only done by the projector.
the issue was that this player, my receiver, and my projector all are capable of 4k upscaling and other tweaks to the video signal and would cause problems if they modified the vid signal at the same time.
it was a steep learning curve, a lot of reading, web research, and contacting techs at sony, denon, and jvc.
certainly not plug and play.
This is the Elevated Standard, hence ES, after the name of the device. The difference from the other players is that this is the premium version of the 4K players. It has a display compared to the others and the other difference is that it has a detachable power cord along with connections for a hifi system.
Other than that they are pretty much the same. What I love about this is that it can be controlled with one controller. I have the Sony A1E and I am able to have full functionality with only one remote control which saves for having multiple controllers laying around.
