No TV today can totally compensate for poor source content, whether that be a highly compressed cable signal or a poorly mastered DVD. We’re all making the best of a bad situation.
As I’ve stated many times before, with the Sony 900E, we have a race car that can reach 160 mph but we’re stuck in a 60 mph “content” lane.
That being said, I believe the Sony 900E does as good a job or better in upscaling 720p or 1080i sources than any other 4K TV on market - especially for its price range.
