I have a question. I can barely notice any specific pixels on my friends 720p 42 inch tv, let alone my 39 inch 1080p. My dad has the 70 inch sharp quatron in 1080p and movies are perfect and you really can't differentiate pixels. Why would i ever need 4k resolution? If it already looks super clear, what's the point? What I'm truly waiting for is a hologram projector or something like that, but i know these will take a long time to enter the average home. So again, why 4k vs 1080p? We could all see the divergence between 480p and 1080p but not so much if it goes any higher.
You likely don't sit close enough to notice the difference. We have a 43" 720 in our bedroom because from the distance we're watching from it's good enough.
Many people don't sit close enough to notice, which is why 4k will probably have a slower adoption rate than 1080 had. Many home theater buffs use the THX standard for viewing distance (screen size / 0.84) , from that distance the average person will be able to tell the difference between 1080 and 4k. So for this 50" tv that'd be 50 / 0.84 = ~5 feet away. The big Sony 84" puts you at 100" or 8.333".

I agree with this. Simple math. No marketing "we will use the big number now" ploy!
Actually that's slightly incorrect. They switched from using the height to the width (1080h v. 3840w) and took some liberties in their rounding. The term 4k itself is not relative to 1080 and is a marketing ploy.
Sorry to be Off in left field, but the hell is a bitcoin? And why is one worth over $100?
bitcoins is a form digital currency. not made by any government and you mine them by using computer resources. price was $14 at the end of December and shot up to $266 today before going down to $120 and now is at 170. an hr ago it was at $158. Some wild fluctuations.
When I first starting pointing out most people didn't need 1080p TVs (in the age of 720p flat panels), I knew -- and said at the time -- that 1080p was inevitable. I was just trying to save people some money. That's all I'm trying to do here. Nothing I say will have any effect on what the corporate giants decide to force on us mortals
I have my TV lying flat on the ground with the screen facing towards the ground, so that the light doesn't bother me when I am sleeping. Which direction is that? Now, if I could just figure out how to direct the sound away from my ears, I can get a good nights rest.
Again, 4K is not 4 times (or 4x) 1080p, it is 2 x 1080p. The person that said 1080p was 2K was the closest one to actually getting it right. Rtard.
I'm not sure I understand the point you're trying to make with your nonstop posts. I quit reading them after a couple pages. No one claimed that 4K is 4 x 1080p. It's 4K, as in 4000, as in the number you get if you round up the horizontal resolution. Do you want them to call it 2160p? I get that that would be more consistent, but it also sounds terrible. Yes, 2K would still be more consistent, but that's not what they're going with. Just accept it. 4K is a much more manageable title for the layperson than 2160p.
Anyway, a 50" 4K TV is a complete waste. Go ahead and think "bigger is better", but it's not true with a TV this small (ha, I can't believe I just called a 50" TV "small"). You really need a large room with a very large TV (>70") for it to matter. And even then, the difference is hardly noticeable.
