When is not answerable at this time. In late December they encouraged pre orders and said the first batch would ship in January.
The reality is that there are things going on, things being worked on and who knows what else. But since they are the only game in town, they can take as long as they want and it really has no effect on you. You will get it whenever they ship it and you have no other alternative but to wait and enjoy your display upscaling content, Of course you coukd buy a computer with the right graphics card etc and output 4K. But you will need sources and even if redray ships this month or next, there are no essentially no 4K sources you can go out and buy or have delivered. Until something like Odemax actually becomes real and some content providers make source content available on it, the device for the consumer market is very limited.
The device will work and it will look good. Its basically just a server. Its for us about content and that is up to others, not Red.
I have preordered the Redray too. But if it showed up at my house today, what could I do with it? play a Bluray through it? Why?
I will start bitching to them when content is available if their Redray player isn't.
