I have not actually plugged a PC (or one my Mac Book Pro's in my case) into the P70. On the Oppo 103D the only text I've seen is that which is on a Blu Ray and on Apple TV. Apple TV plugged into HDMI Input on the 103D looks great with the bit of text I saw on it, but again, I've not tried surfing the web or any such thing at 4k. I should probably try that and see how things look.
I'm thinking about putting the TiVo Romio Pro through the 103D as well since I have two HDMI inputs on it. Romio is direct to the P70 at the moment on HDMI 4 and of course the P70 is doing the upscaling there. I should probably do that sooner than later actually. Hrmph.
Another thing I was surprised by was Cars on DVD
which the kids wanted to watch. It was pretty amazing to see what 480 scaled up to 4k looked like; though it was animation, so not quite "real world" but definitely way better than a DVD on a 1080P set. The 103D was doing that upscaling.
Funny thing is that with my setup our audio is crap now, but our picture is pretty dang nice.
But one of the reasons we decided to get something now instead of later was to get the media stand for the DLP and the front tower speakers, front presence speakers, two subwoofers, surrounds, surround backs out of the living room with the 3 kids 4-years and under all touching them and pulling on them. Went with the wall mounted P70 with the Vizio SB5451 mounted directly underneath, and then the single subwoofer and surrounds behind the couch.
