Nice, thanks for the infos.
That being said, there's only a few titles on that 'lowest 4k' price list I'd consider buying---and for those, the blu ray version was still almost 1/2 off.
Also, I wouldn't consider any of them 'new releases' (except for maybe Jumanji? ---though that title is avail for $4.96 on blu disc). For new releases, I'm still seeing 4k about 2x the cost of blu ray --on average. So minim +$10 -+$15 per title.
That being said, these days I've been buying used blu rays from redbox or online sources for an average of $4-$5 each all in (including tax and/or shipping). For example, just got 'Annihilation' and 'Ready Player One' for $3.98ea all in (no tax, free ship)...used of course, but after a hundred plus used blu discs I've bought (from various sources), have yet to have a problem.
So while a $9ea 4k price would be tempting, it seems not (for me) for the possible 2 titles at that price I'd buy. Those 2 titles I could buy used for less than $4ea on blu disc too.
The mass majority of 4k titles are in that $15-$29 range---and for new titles, the latter. So taking that into consideration, the cost of adding a 4k player to my JVC RS57, and the hassle of integrating it, calibrating, making it work, etc. (albiet easy w/the mentioned panny player), compared to how cheap I get blu discs these days, makes me sit on the sidelines for a bit longer I think. Not gonna make that leap just cos I can get 2 or 3 titles for only $5 bux more than a blu disc.
But again, good to know there are some deals going for 4k media now...
