    I wasn’t aware until recently that 128 GB discs are finally here. Only Sony makes them now. I have one and it works like a charm. Just thought I’d let people know.

    There was a time when we all thought 128 GB discs would never hit the market....

    ...but that really doesn't help with stand alone players. Some support 66GB max, only one supports 100GB max.

    Ahh I wasn’t aware of that. But if only 1 supports 100GB max, how do the rest play 4K UHD titles like Transformers The Last Knight? That movie is about 95GB.

    Anyway I’m using the 100 and 128 GB discs to archive data.

    Some (here) use clonebd to shrink them down to BD50. Plays fine after that.

    I should have been more specific with my statement concerning discs @66GB and 100GB. This was meant for discs created by a BD burner drive and not for original movie discs.
