LED is a form of LCD, too - it merely uses a different type of backlighting (LED instead of CCFL), but the basic characteristics are the same.

And within the group of LED-LCD displays there are edge-lit, full-array and local dimming types of LED.

can a 4K TV play 3D in normal HD Quality with no upscaling?

Can a 4K TV play 2D in normal HD Quality with no upscaling?

Yes, 4K TV have an upscaling for 2D discs to show them as 4K

But can a 4K TV play 2D in normal HD Quality with no upscaling?

No every frame is upscaled. It is not computer monitor where you can switch resolution. Your TV will always display 3840 x 2140 pixels for any type of content.

Without upscaling a full HD signal would only fill a quarter of a 4K screen.

If UHD TVs offer a basic upscaling option without interpolation then it should be the same as if no upscaling had taken place.

For all fellow users interested in a comparison of top-of-the-range OLED vs. LED-LCD screens (and especially for mreeder50), here's an in-depth comparison of the LG EG960V OLED (that's a 9600 in the US and 9609 in Germany) vs. the Samsung 55" JS9000 LED-LCD.

The article in question was written by a UK-based professional in screen calibrations with input from an IT consultant/AV journalist.

Enjoy!

Even if I connect that TV (display) with the computer? Small UHD TVs (displays) are much cheaper than big UHD monitors (displays).

Rough estimate. But can the 4K TVs play normal HD Quality with no upscaling?

That question has already been answered several times.

I know this is something they should provide as part of the installation, but spend the extra money and have the LCD calibrated and all that "artificial, unnatural and washed-out blacks" will go away.


I used calibrated settings from a website. They claim it is indeed TV specific, but if you copy them, in most cases you get up to 95% of the perfect settings. The settings seem to work just fine for me. So I'm not sure if a calibration will make any difference to my eyes.


I use the calibration disks that are available. Currently for HD-BD I use the Spears & Munsil setup disk. Also covers 3D depth setup, which made a big difference. Now waiting on the 4k version when the new 4k players come out next year. Using these disks gives a better picture for my eyes. I find that using 'canned' settings is just setting up to someone else's idea  of what it should look like.

You are lucky.
If at least we could see Tv with mkv quality it should be great.
Only content seen that way happens in one channel of 40.
Some with avaiable movies
So for me , buying a 4k tv is really useless at these moments.
Happy with my 45" plasma.
