Sony X1 4K Media Player

We're still a ways off from 4K being mainstream, so if you're one of the lucky few with a 4K-capable set and a dearth of content to show on it, the Sony X1 4K Media Player ($700) should be able to help. Arriving this summer, the player will come pre-loaded with 10 movies of varying quality, ranging from the Adam Sandler/Andy Samberg horror show That's My Boy to all-time classic Taxi Driver. Perhaps more importantly, that content is only there to tide you over until Sony's distribution service launches later in the year, giving you fee-based access to content from Sony Pictures and the always mysterious "other notable production houses". Still, it beats watching upscaled 1080p content — unless we're talking about Battle: Los Angeles, in which case we'd rather watch 480p reruns of Coach off of Netflix.
