Anyone here succumbed to Ultra HD Blu-ray?

Do you own or plan to acquire a UHD Blu-ray capable home cinema system?

  1. 1. Do you own or plan to acquire a UHD Blu-ray capable home cinema system?

    • Yes, I do
    • No, 1080p Blu-ray is good enough.
    • No, I'll miss my 3D Blu-ray too much.
    • No, I've only got 720p capability and it looks mighty fine.
    • No, DVD rulez!
    • No, I'm still rocking a Laserdisc player!
    • No, VHS will return (just look at vinyl)!
    • What's UHD Blu-ray?

Well it depends on how big a screen you're talking about and how far you're sitting from it.

 

In most cases, since having a projector means you're using a very large screen (60+"), then yes, 4K can make a difference. But most people under normal viewing conditions (i.e. screen size & distance) can't see the difference between 4K and 1080p (and often 720p).

 

HDR is another matter, of course.  But resolution has pretty much reached its limits for normal, home viewing in the way most people watch TV, and even 4K is often overkill. Most people don't watch movies with their mouth open, gawking 6" from a flat screen with the contrast turned up to max (i.e. the Curry's/Best Buy showroom experience).

They won't percieve individual pixels, but they may sense a subtle change in image quality, because the finer objects in the frame (again, mostly stuff like strands of hair) would look a bit sharper.

 

I'm totally fine with my 1080p TV, though.

Big and close

 

 Do you know of Dr. Freud? His ideas about the male preoccupation with size might be of particular interest to you.
