Post subject:  Xbox One S or X

Anyone use one for watching UHD Blu-Rays? I'm going to upgrade my HT to 4K this Xmas, and I'm looking at 4K players for disc playback. The Xbox seems to be a real bargain, compared to every other player out there. I will never use it for gaming, and I just want a simple, non-intrusive UI for accessing and playing 4K discs - nothing else (that's what I have Plex for). Ideally, this player would last me 2 years, so I'm hesitant to take the console seriously (given the XBOX' quality control history).

People don't watch movies on this forum so no-one can tell you.

Though your Xbox quality control concern as spot-on. No idea if this generation of consoles has had as many problems.

Cheap at least!

You can get them new at that price, hence why I asked (and only because a lot of peeps have Xboxes). I think I'll grab this and a Sony player on Black Friday, and return the one I hate the least.

There have been no real problems with this gen of Xboxes.

(Even the major problems with the 360 gen was a specific run of them; the problems were sorted out with a slight redesign, but unfortunately the design with the problem was also the one that was out when it was selling at its peak.)

THAT SAID, I started to switch from the PS3 to Xbox One for playing blu-rays, and have opted to switch back and stick with the Playstation. The interface on the One is shitty and is not intuitive. I do not like the media player at all.

argh. I'm pretty sure every stand-alone player has a shitty UI, compared to Plex and Kodi. Not sure why these players (consoles included) can't include a phone app to control them.

Phone/tablet remote controls in Plex/Kodi are the best.
