I agree it's not a negative with 1080p, if anything it's equivalent if you're talking 1080p --> 1080p transfer vs. 4k --> 4K transfer. It's probably why we've seen qualitative reviews of some...

It applies when considering production of 4K transfers if the initial scan is done at 8K. So long as the master is film or digital at 8K, then it applies.

True, but if you're comparing Vizios, I got mine for 1800 from Dell in February of 2010.

Saying that, it's like saying that if you have a QDeo chip in your AVR, you have the same video as an Oppo...

You are correct.

I am rightfully abashed and hold myself in momentary approbation.

True it is a great leap, but it's one that was done before then taken back. It's more like a great hopscotch leap.

The 10X Oppos don't use the QDeo for upscaling. The 103 and 105 use it for noise reduction, the upscaling is handled by the Mediatek chip and their own firmware efforts. The upscaling is excellent,...

The 10X players seem to play this without a problem. You have to put the 83 in context - there were not many (if any) 100 dollar bluray players in 2009, which is when the 83 came out. The cheapest I...

Cable boxes may not be giving you the best upscaling possible. In the case of Netflix, you are seeing a "pure" signal coming in that is then worked on (if needed) by the Vizio.

As you know, the 83 is a great bluray player and at least as good as the 103D in upscaling. Taking it and putting it with your new LG would give you great disc...
