My Blu-ray player does 4K upscaling (Sony X800). However, my Epson 5040UB projector also does 4K upscaling. Is one inherently better than the other? Or does it just come down to looking at them side-by-side and picking a personal preference? Or is one actually using a better, more refined technology?

I tend to think that the upscaling chip in a projector or TV will be of better quality than the upscaler in a blu-ray player; however, there could be exceptions where a higher end player, such as an Oppo, may have better upscaling qualities than the projector or TV. I pretty well let the end device in a chain do the upscaling; however, it doesn't hurt to try both ways and see which one looks better or if there is any difference whatsoever.
