I don't remember mention of download speeds.

I bet! Man, I would LOVE to see Pacific Rim in 3d on the RS500 with all that contrast, especially with your HP screen!

So I can't do both the Roku for 4K and the Samsung.

Hence...I was really hoping the Samsung could also be a decent streaming/youtube access option for 4K as well.

The problems I've read so far in the Samsung owners thread is that people seem to be having a tough time actually streaming 4K, if the Samsung is compatible with lots of the youtube 4K encoding, or determining IF the stream is 4K
at all.

it looks like a few new reports from folks that were fine streaming 4K from Youtube. it should be here tomorrow, I should have a chance to check this out tomorrow night.

edit: I have a 50Mb FIOS connection

I predict 2000:1 native, 10000:1 dynamic (useful) contrast. There's no way they could reach 10000:1 native.
