Nope your wrong................what size ar e those 1000 dollar units ? Not even close to big enough to take advantage of 4k.

I have done the side by side comparisons on a 80 plus inch sets and you gotta be up right on it to see any difference............

Read the last CR comparisons if you doubt me................they agree 100%

We just disagree. If you can't see a difference, that's fine, but don't expect others to conform to your opinion. In my opinion, the difference between 1080p and 4K is quite clear at any size. I can see a difference at 31" ($2,999 Dell UP3214Q) and 39" ($499 Seiki SE39UY04) at normal monitor distance (2-3ft), 50" ($799 TCL LE50UHDE5691), 55" ($2,999 LG 55LA9650), and 65" ($4,999 Sony XBR65X900A) from normal TV viewing distance (5-10ft) and 84" ($24,999 Sony XBR-84X900) at over 10ft.

CR?

Also, you could do tests eg. downscale/upscale tests to see how much resolvable resolution is in Blu-rays. That should also tell you if something is an SD upscale (or only contains an SD amount of resolvable information), if other information doesn't.

I didn't know about that, thanks. I just tried it and I could only find six titles when searching for either "SD", "720p", or "1080i". Nothing came up for "upscaled" or "PAL" or anything like that. I managed to also find a list of about 30 Hong Kong films that are all upscales... Even so, doesn't that just drive the point home? You really have to search hard and even then you'll find less than 0.001% of all releases that are upscaled. Where I come from, that's far from being an epidemic, or even a mild concern. To each his own, I suppose.

First, that site sometimes enters specs about titles incorrectly so it won't necessarily give the correct results and it won't be a definitive list even if they had entered all specs correctly.

Though you say you tried it and could only find six titles when searching for things like "1080i". If you go to www.blu-ray.com, and click on "movies", from the box on the left under "database" click "search movies". In the "search movies" box, leave everything else blank/at the default and in the "Video Resolution" combobox, select "1080i". In the top blue part of the web page make sure on the right of the search box there that "All countries" is set. Then click on the "Search" button at the bottom of the "search movies" section (under genres). When I do this I get 3426 matches for 1080i and 101 matches when searching with "video resolution" set to "1080p (upconverted)" and 74 for 720p.

But I agree that most will be full HD.

Nice, and it's the Complete Series, too. From 1989-1990.
