Got no problem with you wasting yours but be honest.
No content will be lucky to ever get something uncompressed.....ever.
Issues still all over with 1080P being compressed.
Have to be couple feet from it to see any diff whatsoever and that isn't even consistent.
4k will be in our homes when prices come down to what regular 1080P sets cost
and they give you a way to SHUT OFF THE UPCONVERSION.
WE ALL KNOW THE REALITY OF UPCONVERTING lower quality material.
sTILL A LOT OF NON hd MATERIAL OUT THERE ..............
gLAD YOUR HAPPY BUT BE REAL.

Thanks for the positive post
But who cares? I really don't.
Think I care what Consumer reports says ? If I did I would be driving a Smart Car or a Nissan Sentra and not a Ford Fusion Energi .
Our friend probably drives a Toyota Corolla because Consumer Reports said it was a good buy. Except he bought a 5 year old used model
because he doesn't want the auto companies, especially if they are US companies, to be profitable.
Uncompressed video ? Does it exist.. Cable companies, Blu Rays? And now 4K. They all do it.
Its a matter of economics and trying to save bandwidth.
Prices ? Too high. I don;t think so. Go see the 55 inch Seiko for under $900.00. Not a smart set but it is 4K
Shut off the upconversion ? 1080p looks better in 4K. I forgot that you have that collection of 480i DVDs and VHS tapes you downloaded for free from a torrent or UseNet.
Better to watch them in their original 480i format. Makes you feel better using outdated technology. Its the original format and authentic though so its good
And easier on your eyes watching in 4 X 3 with jaggies and the original blurryness of 480i
So go back to your 480i DVDs\,mp3s and other antiquities. Read up on what is good to buy. But get Consumer Reports approval first.
We wouldn't want you to waste your dollars
I spend my money the way I want. I make mistakes sometimes but I enjoy what I buy.
I bought the Sony Profeel 25inch TV before they made the improved sets called Sony Trinitrons. The Sony Profeel had power supply design problems and died after a few years.
I enjoyed watching a 25 inch TV when everyone else had 10 and 15 inch sets.
My next tv was a 65 inch Mitsubishi rear projector. State of the art at the time. Suffered from moisture inside the cathode ray tubes.Dim picture unless you had completely dark room
Then came the Qualia. Beautiful picture. True state of the art. But not without a huge engineering design fault The color filters discolored causing the green blob.
Anyone else would have had nothing more to do with Sony
After 5 years they stepped up and gave us their best 65 inch LED set. What company has a 5 year factory warranty.
Traded my 65 inch Sony for the 4K
You probably don't have a Qualia so what are you wasting your time for on our Qualia owners forum ?
Flame me. I can handle it as I sit and enjoy the NFL on my 4kEdited by thestewman - 12/1/13 at 9:04pm
