What reviewers didn't like

Feels a little chintzy, Not great for streaming compared to dedicated boxes
No HDR10+ support, Noisy in operation and Flimsy build quality
Only supports streaming 4K HDR from YouTube. Both cheaper competitors and Sony's own X800 offer better DVD performance.
Console lacks all transport controls and navigation except for EJECT and Console lacks a display
Only supports older 2.4GHz WiFi networks, so streaming 4K may at times be sluggish. Plastic build materials make the unit feel a little cheap. No support for Dolby Vision.
From a performance standpoint, I have no major concerns with the UBP-X700. I suppose the only performance downside is that, if you buy the player right now, you'll have to wait a little while before you can enjoy Dolby Vision support--since that firmware update won't be available until the summer.
