If you want to play 4K H.264/H.265/MPEG4 files on a UHD display, you have to choose C2.

Yes for 4K, it seems C2 is the only choice.

I have a C2, not a XU4, but my understanding is that if you just want 1080p max, maybe the XU4 is the better choice? (considering both have 1080p HW video decode support, and XU4 is a better processor otherwise?)

I'm very much open to correction on that.

Yes you are correct in a way, but the C2 is a better media player without a doubt.

If you have other CPU heavy tasks you would like to accomplish and media (1080p and lower) is secondary the xu4 is what you want.

I`d like to give my 2 cents worth.... also the c-2 is an over-clockers dream really..
all c-2`s iv`e ever owned have comfortably clocked @1.75 ghz @4 cores..even when steaming they remained functional..but i did add a fan to them as the sink was getting rather hot..that said it was not 100% necessary..phase..
