Its like like 1080 tv had 1080i, 1080p, then finally full HD just to get rid of confusion (due to the 1080i/720p).
Perhaps I've missed something, but what is the difference between 1080p and "full HD"?

Picked one up at my local BestBuy. Seems to work pretty well so far. NetFlix and regular Blu Ray discs look great. No UHD discs to try out yet.

Thanks OP!

there is literally a dearth of material that doesn't cost a small fortune to buy/rent in "true" 4K. I am not interested in "updating" my library and collections all over again. laserdisc to betamax to vhs to dvd to hddvd. ENOUGH!

I HAD to buy a tv as my mother's 40" crt finally broke the legs on the stand it was on for a decade. No surprise there. :P
So she now has the RFD tv of the year. Sony 900E.

I'm not certain how this dedicated player differs from the Xbox though. ...any insights ??

Until then, disc-based for true 4K or higher is the best we can hope to see.

On a side note, the possible killing of Net Neutrality will set us so far back that streaming content with such high bandwidth demands as 4K & 8K with not be worth it.
This dark ages bode well for those who prefer physical media.

Just gotta consolidate the various formats (DVD, Bluray, 4K Blu).

Physical media is the only way to legally enjoy UHD movies.


There are no legitimate sources that offer 4k video with hdr and uncompressed audio

Not to mention at their true 4K certified bit-rate.

Netflix isn't going to stream a 50GB 4K flick, nor are any residential grade ISP's able to provide that sort of bandwidth in order to get that to your TV.

Physical media is still King for Videophiles.

I have no 4k t.v. but kind of want to buy this. Maybe i should save the $100 and trade in the old xb1 for a newer 4k compatible xb1? Is my thinking right?

This player looks great but doesn't do Dolby Vision, just something to keep in mind for people who have a Dolby Vision enabled TV like the OLEDB7 for example.
