Yes...we are looking for a new tv...our Samsung has blown pixels...looks like a snowstorm...
Has been good tv for about 9 yrs so can't complain really...

We use UVerse cable --which is compressed even if says HD--and watch Lot of streaming content via our Sony blu Ray DVD player which is not 4K--but not all available content there is 4K....
and my understanding is that your wi-if can compromise or impinge on the 4K quality there as well....So upscaling is happening more than relaying native content quality...is that correct?

So if someone wanted to just default to a great quality HDC model...65"...what options are available?

Poor WiFi will cause pixelation to appear, or buffering: not upscaling. Upscaling happens based on the input itself. If you are watching 1080p on Wifi it upscales. If you are watching 4K it does not upscale not matter how bad your signal gets.
