incredible TV. Love my 82". WOW. Also have 1080P Panasonics, 720Ps ,etc. Over 10 flat screen TVs in the home. The Mitsu is my favorite by far, due to size , and IQ is great.

4k resolution is pretty useless for any in home application right now, I feel as though it's the same as the "4g" bullshit mobile phone carriers are trying to push.
You dont need 4k resolution on any consumer television because when sitting from the correct distance the human eye cant distinguish 1080 from 4k unless the screen is MASSIVE
You analogy makes no sense 4g is not bs at all its just really fast

which is precisely what 80"-90"+ screens are. I disagree about higher resolution being useless here - even if you use it as a computer screen, let alone when watching movies. Common knowledge is that a "sweet spot" area for both audio and video is when you form an equilateral triangle between the two speakers for stereo sound and two sides of the screen for picture. When I'm in a movie theater or at home watching, I like the picture to take all viewable area in front of me just before I will need to start turning my head side to side. In the theaters those are the best seats usually reserved for disabled viewers. Now try watching a battle scene with a lot of detail on your blu-ray from that distance and tell me you couldn't use more pixels. Most movies are either still shot on film or, if digital, then 4K+ resolution, too. So what you're getting on your "Full HD" is 25% of that.

here they recommend watching it from a distance of 2 picture heights: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQD-QKND3ug

I just got off the phone with an amazon rep as you can see above and was told that they will price match it because it is fulfilled by Amazon.
fulfilled by Amazon means the seller utilized the service of shipping their merchandise to be stored at Amazon warehouse and Amazon will ship the product when it is sold.
Amazon does not have the authority to do price adjustments since it is not sold by Amazon LLC

4K means 3840 x 2160 pixel panels
has nothing to do with 4g speed (of network)

having a bad day? dewk2 asked a very legitimate question about whether 1080p is good enough for a 80"+ screens if 720p on a 50" raises questions with some - regardless of the technology (dlp, lcd, led). In movie theaters people are hundreds of feet away from those huge screens and at home we're not. Why do you think we're going into 4K resolutions? SONY already has: http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/20...er-server/
Funny, I have an Epson 8700UB projecting a 120" image and 1080p looks amazing at a 10' seating distance. Do you plan on sitting 2' away from an 83" screen?

see my last post. I wouldn't vow for what level of detail makes you happy or for what it is that you're watching, hopefully not an old 2D cartoons :-) My folks wouldn't tell 720 from 480 until they saw what 1080p looks like. My advise to everyone who says that 1080 ought to be enough for everybody, just go see what 4K looks like. It's addictive though, so be careful :-)

Benefits of 4k Resolution...

Who sits 5-8 feet away from an 80 inch television? That is the distance you would have to sit to notice the diference or benefits of 4k resolution

An idiot every time with dlp posts. What do you think you are watching at most movie theaters? Guess they will shut down because you think DLP is archaic. Guess they are running 40x1080p also, because they are on a 500"+ screen. . .

Feel free to go buy a $5k+ 80" LCD. I will gladly fork over $94 every 3 years for a new bulb instead.
woah dawg. seems like you need to relax. go watch some TV for a bit!

he's asking a question! also his statement is valid. DLPs are becoming extinct due to the weight and thin dimension of these LED-LCD tvs coming in. Didn't mention anything about archaic inferior viewing technology. Theres just better and better alternatives to sway the general public to buy plasmas/lcds over DLPs.. to a point that DLP sales are close to extinct. (IE: peoples homes dont come with infinite square feet, so people want thinner tvs.)

I was referring to 4k tvs as a marketing ploy the same as "4g", so yes they have nothing to do with each other except my anology that I made

Whats the point of having 4g with such miniscule data caps?
To reach your limit faster? stream higher bit rate content... to reach your limit faster?

Again, as it stands right now a 4k television is simply a marketing ploy and is unrealistic in everyday home use

Rear projection TV is soon to be extinct. DLP sales are fine and will be around for a while.

Wow. I had an earlier DLP (around 2004 I think) which I replaced with a plasma a couple of years ago. I did not have a good experience with my DLP. Much, much happier with my plasma and would never go back to DLP. But still sad to see it ago.
