Well, after being part of this thread from the beginning and whining and complaining with everyone else about this set not being able to play internal apps in UHD format, and everyone waiting for Amazon, M-Go, etc being added to the FMP-X10, which never happened. I can proudly say my new set, upgrading from the 850A, is being setup this Saturday. However, since HDMI 2.0 & HDCP 2.2 finally incorporated into receivers, we don't have to fight over what component we're going to plug in next.

As a true early adopter of 4K, I can honestly say this thread has had more volatility than most, but I'm still keeping this set, just moving it to the bedroom for now. Thank God technology has grown from what it was. I'm happy to say that I'll probably be the last one who posts in this thread.

So what did you end up getting? Does it have HDMI 2.1?

I was dead set on an LG OLED set, but I thought I would give OLED a little more time to mature where more than one manufacturer would be making these panels, so, I decided to buy the new Vizio P75-c1. I'm a little anxious since I haven't been able to find anyone with a model on display, so I'm buying it without ever even seeing it in person.

I've been following both threads, for the Vizio and the LG, and I must say just listening to others who have this set, some who bought it to replace their 2015 LG OLED set, I think this is the set to get the most bang for your buck. The Vizio is UHD, HDR (currently supports Dolby Vision with HDR10 coming soon via firmware update), Wide Color Gamut, 128 zones of local dimming, etc, this set can produce black levels as low as OLED and it's only a portion of the price of OLED. Not to mention, that's comparing it to a 65" OLED. The Vizio is a 75" and the only other OLED close to this size is $25,000. I bought this Vizio for $3700.

Hi. Just purchased a Xbox One S to use as a uhd player on my XBR55X850A. Main screen is indeed in 4K but when I try to play a uhd movie, comes back to 1080p. Xbox says my tv can't play 4K in 10 bit color. I have a Samsung 4k cablebox and it plays 4k movies nicely. So what gives? Does anyone have any ideas on what's going on?

I could be wrong but I think only one of our hdmi ports will handle any 4K.

You're right! It's HDMI4 and it works. Thank you very much Boe!
