Stand out facts:
The cord is 6ft long.
Built in upscaling chip
It has a USB input on one end that plugs in to your TV to power it.
4k display for blu rays on PS3 and most blu ray players.
Upscales 720 to 1080p
Will upsale 1080p at 25 to 30hz to 4kUHD
Upscales 720p PS3 games like GTA5 to 1080p 60hz

PC or Laptop can stream Youtube 4k
Working with Multi out splitters (Tested with:amazon.com/gp/product/B004F9LVXC/)
will not upscale 1080p that is over 30hz to 4k
Does not appear to work with Multi In HDMI splitters (tested with: amazon.com/gp/product/B00JIM38HS)
Over all this is a great buy for upgrading existing blu ray players to 4k upscale.
From time to time when you start up a device(PS3) plugged into the U-vision cable it will not display anything and your TV will display no signal found ect, the best fix is to simply unplug the usb cable from your TV and re-plug and it will usually display.Read more ›
With that said, I recently purchased a Seiki 50" 4K TV. I bought this cable hoping to see it upscale my 1080P stuff to 4K.
First things i learned is, make sure you do this.
1) Sharpness should be set to Zero.
2) Motion Estimate and Motion Compensation should be set to zero
I bought this and first tested it on my Xbox one which was outputting 1080P 60hz before the u-vision cable. After U-Vision i was naively expecting 4K 30hz, but i still got 1080P 60hz. Well i didn't get this before i bought it, but it can only upscale 1080P 30hz (NOT 1080p 60hz) to 4K 30hz (now i get it!)
The box claims that the cable will still enhance the picture quality of the 1080P 60hz, but i honestly couldn't really tell.
Unfortunately, (or fortunately because why would you want to lower from 60hz to 30hz except in this case) I can't set the Xbox One to 1080P 30hz or 24hz. So instead I used the cable on my PS3.
Using the PS3, i played Dark Knight rises on blu-ray and TADA, the TV indicated that the resolution was not 1080P 24hz or 30hz, but it was at 4K! And i THINK it looked better.
Case in point, I give it 3 stars because it looks like it works, but my eyes can't really tell for sure.
I only post this review for anyone who's a newb like me and wants to see their xbox one output 4K. Welp, maybe you should just try turning your sharpness to 0 and see if it looks better.
OH and it upscales 720P to 1080P. That's pretty neat.Read more ›
Video Conversion Table:
480p 60hz 1080p 60hz
576p 50hz 1080p 50hz
720p 50/60 1080p 50/60
1080p 50/60 1080p 50/60 (but enhanced, which mostly means sharpening I guess)
1080p 24/25/30 2160p 24/25/30
If your input signal is anything but those listed above, you wouldn't notice a difference because the cable probably isn't doing anything. For instance, some of my TV channels come through in 1080i. Notice, 1080i is not listed on the box, so it doesn't do anything special and just runs in 1080i. If however the channel normally does 720p (which most HD cable channels do) then it upconverts to 1080p and looks significantly better.
When I tested Blu Ray movies the difference was blatantly obvious. I tried 3 movies. 2 were natively 1080p and 1 was 720p. The 720p movie was transformed to 1080p, and the 2 1080's became 4k. I could see the pock marks in Bilbo's face in "The Hobbit 2". Awesome clarity.
Now for the reason I deducted a star:
I feel like there's some lag. It's very minimal, but once you notice it, you can't "un-notice" it. It's like micro-stuttering. I thought maybe the cable wasn't getting enough power, but I tried plugging in the USB to several different power sources and the issue remained so I don't think it's a power issue.Read more ›
