I usually upgrade my projector every 3 years...I'm going on 5 with my JVC DLA-RS20. I'm actually still very pleased (and sometimes really surprised!) how killer my JVC/Darblet looks. Plus, my video 'obsession' is now down to a comfortable level, making my current setup THAT MUCH BETTER I will retire her, when SHE is ready

Now updated to 4k. Replaced my Sony xbr-34 960 crt with a Sony xbr-65 950b led. PQ is comparable, but the size difference is amazing! Glad to be in the 21st century with this set.

I looked at those images on flickr that you posted in your original thread. That is not a 4K vs 2K problem.

That is a dead panel problem, if I'm seeing what I think I'm seeing. If at all possible, consider returning the TV immediately. Respond in that thread, because I responded there as well.

Your complaint doesn't belong here in this thread.

I am currently using a Vizio M60 (which is 4K) in my living room. Although all of my current video sources are no better than 1080p, I think the TV does a really good job of upscaling and I found through some research that the M series had quite a few advantages over the E series (the 1080p variant). I essentially went with a 4K TV in order to future-proof my living room for the next few years and to get the better features of the M over the E, but I'm sure I would have been fine getting the 1080p model.

My vote was HD before a my main display required a warranty replacement. Now I'm in the 4K group (LG 55EF 9500). I don't regret upgrading to 4K but still would have been willing to hold out longer for prices to drop (on OLED) and for more 4K content.

My primary display is still my Sony 55inch W900A and is likely to remain that way until 8K hit's in a few years and I'm all good with that.

Ugh, as much of a resolution guy I obviously am, I really hope that the 8K stuff stays way off into the distance. Corporations have only so much energy, and their focus really needs to be placed elsewhere. (Motion, OLED HDR, HFR!!!!, etc...)

However I do kind of like how the vast majority of the "1080 is enough" mantra crowd have finally dried up. Kind of reminds me of what happened to all those "720 is enough" folks some time ago. {chuckle}

I hope that absurd distance chart never surfaces again.

Running 1080p here on a 55 inch LG 55LW5000 3D television. I would need for prices on 4K TV's to come down a bit more (would like something fairly decent with HDR and 65 inches for about $1600 CDN) and also I need to see more content made available. I'm gonna give it at least two more years before I jump. No rush as I am happy with what I have right now.

Yes, those "elsewhere" (Motion, OLED, HDR, HFR, etc.) will likely have a bigger impact in PQ than more pixels.

I would probably fall in the "1080p" is enough for me if we add HDR, HFR, etc. to the 1080, if, for no other reason, that these eyes are already 62 years old and don't have the sharpness of focus they once had.

My very humble setup:

I run 1080p on all TV's in my home (5) and in my HT room off a projector. I would love to have 4k in my HT room but I can't justify the cost on a true 4k projector. One day though.

I've got a crappy old 1080i Samsung TV. 40" and it cost me €900 at the time. I suppose I'll have to make do until OLED becomes affordable.

Still using a 55" LG 1080P. I'm hoping to win a 4k tv from AVS, it will be at least 6 months to a year before I will be able to afford one but my pc monitor is a 27" 2k

I have 1080P HD as I do not have any sources capable or requiring higher resolution at this time.

I have 1080p and I'm satisfied.

Isn't it true that 4K only makes sense if the apparent size of the screen is huge, either by having a huge display or by sitting unusually close? I still haven't seen a convincing demonstration of 4K.

Ever? You will eventually have no choice, because 2K past a certain panel size won't be offered.

For instance, how many TVs 32" and greater are still offered at 720p?

4K will eventually be all you can find at such sizes, or at least at 40" and up. It already is for any panel of quality.

Looking at the filters at the Best Buy web site, I see:

SizeNumber 720pNumber 1080p
32-in125
39-in21


Starting at 40-in, resolutions are 1080p and 2160p, but no 720p.

Without doing further digging, I don't know how many of these models are warehoused inventory vs. how many of these are currently in production, which would be a more telling number.

Okidoki, then make it >32" or 40" if you like.

The point is precisely the same.

I think all TVs going forward should be 4K, unless they're on the smaller/budget end.

Still 1080P until a true 4K projector arrives at the magic "under $2000" price point. Until then I'm perfectly content with 1080P.

You do have a point especially if I ever need to look for something new.

Upgraded to a 4K OLED a month back. I couldn't think of going back to LED/LCD anymore.

Right now an Acer g245h 1080p monitor.

Soon though I'm jumping to either a 4k B6 OLED or KS8000, haven't decided which yet.
