Not sure what you've looked at but I can attest to how terrific the Maleficent blu Ray looked on my 4K XBR last night. Extremely good in every regard. For the record, the Sonys tend to get the most...

+1. I've yet to view a single 4K set that didn't introduce a ton of garbage when scaling a 720 or 1080 input-- you know 95% of what's out there right now and in the foreseeable future?

I sure do miss the "input mode" button: I used to assign my apple tv's optical to my directv source so I can easily overlay its audio over the dtv video.

With that being gone- and an added "input...

You are me, lol.

I looked at the IDENTICAL Vizio 4K P series and 1080 M Series and went with the "M". Simply could not discern the difference at 10-11 feet. Pocketed $700 and have no regrets.
