Sony UBP-X700 (2017) vs LG UBKM9 series Ultra HD Blu-ray players (2019)

Analysis:

The Sony UBP-X700 (2017) sets the bar for all other Blu-ray Players at the $210 price point. The LG UBKM9 (2019), however, is merely passable at that price.

The Sony UBP-X700 (2017) has managed to impress reviewers from two reliable and objective sources that conduct their own testing, namely Expert Reviews and CNET. It did great in their roundups - it earned the "The best 4K UHD Blu-ray player for under £200" title from Expert Reviews, and "Best Dolby Vision 4K Blu-ray player" from CNET, which marks it as a product that's worth considering.

Taking a look at the LG UBKM9 (2019), we found that it hasn't managed to perform well enough to earn a spot in any Blu-ray Player roundups done by sources that conduct their own, high-quality, hands-on testing. That alone makes it difficult to recommend.

Lastly, we tried to do a direct Sony UBP-X700 (2017) vs. LG UBKM9 (2019) comparison of review ratings between these two products, but couldn't find any review scores for the LG UBKM9 (2019).

Compared to all other Blu-ray Players on the market, however, the Sony UBP-X700 (2017) performed great. When averaged out, it earned a rating of 9.0 out of 10, which is much better than the 8.1 review average of Blu-ray Players in general.
