I guess what I'm asking is it
A- better to get a blu ray player that doesn't even have 4k upscalling
B- better to get a blu ray player that has 4k upscalling and turn the upscalling off because the tv does a better job
C- better to get blu ray player with 4k upscalling and turn it on (guessing not this one from what u r saying)
Thanks to anyone who locks in an answer
Personally I feel like the best bluray players available have 4k upscaling and 3D because they are the higher end of "insert manufacturer here"s line. What I mean is the Sony BDP-S6200 is the flagship Sony player for the US and will have the best picture quality, speed, features, etc in comparison to the rest of it's line. Those features include 4k upscaling and 3d. Panasonic, Samsung, etc will all be similar in my opinion.
I think what it comes down to is what do you really want? A premium player that you will not upgrade for quite some time? Something to use for now while actual 4K players get ironed out along with HDCP 2.2, etc? I know I am not answering your question directly but these are all the things I think of when going to buy a new Bluray. I bought my BDP-S6200 for my living room because Sony has yet to add 3D capability to the PS4 and my old 3D player was so slow. I bought the best player available for the price (in my opinion) and I was going to grab one for my bedroom since I put a 4K Samsung in there as well. But I have a Sony BDP-S590 in the bedroom that works perfectly fine, albeit much slower than the 6200, so I am going to wait for the next crop of players hopefully with HDMI 2.0, etc.
The main reason I recommend the BDP-S6200 is the dual core processor and the speed. The 4k upscaling is average to good but the TV just does it better. I would compare it with the Panasonic and a few other models without 4k upscaling to see which appeals to you. I was very close to pulling the trigger on a Panasonic BDT-460 or a BDT-360 but I am waiting to see if the 700 comes to the States (which I doubt it will).
