I have had the seiki uvision adapter for about a week. I am extremely pleased with the upconversion on my dish hopper satellite box to my seiki 55 in 4k tv. I am outputting 720p from hopper and adapter is converting to 1080p. Picture quality is greatly improved. I can see more detail in dark scenes. Lighting looks more natural. Really impressed with the upconversion.

Does anyone know if this cable will improve picture rendering better than the Revelation upscaler in the Sharp LC-70UD1U??

These cables are overpriced in Canada ATM, I would love to try and compare them to my Sammy EH5003's internal upscaler for the PS3 in 720P output upscaled to 1080P via the U-Vision cable.

Has there been any professional reviews of this?

How does the scaling chip compare to most TV's internal scalers?

Didn't do pro review but I tested BD direct to TV, BD via U-vision to TV, native 4K content to TV (same title, of course). TV being used were the Sony 950 and Samsung 9000 and both were calibrated. Both TV internal upscalers are better than U-vision with the Sony upscaler being closer to native 4K than the Samsung (although the Samsung's internal upscaler is better looking, but upon closer inspection, the Samsung tend to exaggerate edges too much).

Never tried with any other TV, though.
