Best upscaling for low res, budget?
In the market for a new 55" set, about $700 max. We watch exclusively downloaded content, mostly 720p, and sometimes as low as 480p. All played from usb attached hard drive or from PC via HDMI.
So, am I correct in assuming upscaling should be most important in considering new set?
Based on reviews i bought a TCL 6 series, but it has hard time reading my hard drive partitions, so it's going back.
Considering vizio M8, but rtings rates its 720p upscaling as sub-par. What good is "best picture in its class" if it upscales my source material poorly?
Costco salesman recommend LG UM7300, claiming it had adaptive, self-learning upscaling, better than any other budget set and would be best suited to my low res material. But I can't find any online information to confirm this, and it's hard to ignore the otherwise mediocre reviews this set receives.
The online reviews I'm finding spend little or no time discussing upscaling. Please help...
