How does the RS500 compared to the 665ES in terms of naturalness of image? Does the Sony still have the edge despite the posterization?

I recommend waiting to read reputable reviews before buying any UHD BD. Sometimes there's good discussion over at the Blu-ray site too.

Is there anyway to validate the tone mapping as far as which player is more accurate? Or is it just a subjective call?

JVC E-shift on 1080p material does help to smooth out the aliasing to a degree, but makes the image slightly less sharp. Agreed, I think native 4K will help more with 1080p in this regard.

So in essence, with the greater number of pixels on a 4K display the scaling allows that native 1080p content to be seen more readily (since we're talking a lot more pixels with 4K) at 4K as is the...

Hahn does make an interesting point about 4:3 movies. I suppose it comes down to how often or how many you watch and what priority you give it?

I would be curious of sales of the RS400 vs the Sony HW65 as that choice is such a no-brainer for most applications. However, the brand name of 'Sony' is still incredibly alluring to a lot of people.

And look at it this way: as good as the RS500 is and better, the difference between the RS400 and the other two projectors you considered is much larger.
