FYI to owners of this set: only HDMI slots 2 and 4 support 4K @ 60Hz with HDR. I wound up ordering a pair of AmazonBasics cables I didn't need. :lol:
2 and 3 you mean.

How the hell is giving a gift card a MAP violation. That doesn't make any sense.
Call and ask if you don't believe me. I know 100% this is a violation.
Bestbuy offered a Gift card for Sony Tvs which SONY itself allowed. (which was 10% of the retail value im pretty sure)

You are not aloud to give coupons or Giftcards with purchases of TVS that are MAPPED.

I don't want to be a syntax police, but it's "allowed". Saw it twice, could not resist the second time ;-)
Happy Koodo customer :-)

Got the 65X900E for $1750 + tax at Teletime. 75 inch version quoted @ $3000 + tax.

Very nice TV. :)

After playing with the TV these past few days, I can confirm that games at 1080p look considerably worse than on a native 1080p display. It's not horrible, but it's definitely blurry; this is with GPU scaling off in nVidia Control Panel, so the TV's scaler is doing the work.

On the bright side, my PC seems to be holding up pretty well at 4K and games look pretty glorious. I also watched some UHD Netflix content that looks pretty freaking spectacular.

Very happy with the purchase overall.
Wait. What are you saying? You have me nervous. Games at 1080p look bad on this tv?

Still have my new in box 65 inch Panny Plasma that I bought as they were being phased out.

I am tempted to go 4K but think I will wait until OLED gets commoditized and the prices drop as I want to go 75 inches.

Good deals though, thanks OP!

This is strange and I hope we can get an explanation. 1080p is 1920x1080 resolution, and 4K is the exact double, 3840x2160... As far as I know, there is no resampling so the image should not be blurry. Are you sure you're not playing 720p stuff?

4k is actually 4x the resolution of 1080p
I meant in term of scaling, it's double. There's four times the total number of pixels, of course. So "blurry" effect comes in when the scaling is not even. For example, you'd get a blurry image if you were going to scale a native 720p resolution to 1080p if there were no upscaling optimization done.

PS: Please note that it's false to say that 4K is 4x the resolution of 1080p. Don't confuse number of pixels with resolution.

So are you telling me that going from 720p to 1440p in terms of scaling is "double" too? Because it's the exact same scenario. You can fit four 720p windows into one 1440p window just like you can fit four 1080p windows into one 2160p window. How is it not four times the resolution?
