It's the whole enchilada, and there's more to it than pixel differentiation.


Agree. t's always been about picture quality for me. If a 65" 4k TV looks better than a 65" 2k TV past 7', it's because it's a better engineered TV, not because it has more pixels. What I take from that Sony paper is if all else is equal (dynamic range, black levels, etc), a 65" 4k display will look smoother and/or more detailed than a 2k display closer than 7', content permitting.


BTW, using that same Sony distance metric (2.3 x screen height), a 100" screen is 49" tall, so you need to sit 9.3' or closer to appreciate the resolution bump.

what you are trying to imply makes no sense.  so a $300,000 has a room that is worth 70% of the homes value.

I've seen bathroom and kitchen remodels that cost half as much as a house each.

It all comes down to who and what you want to invest in.

I can show you a 3.5 Million house that was taken down to the topsoil and is being replaced with something bigger!  It's about a mile from the 20,000 sq ft house Denny Hamlin is building.  (Nascar)


Can't imagine the HT in either.  (or the one that was destroyed)

Nothing like using outlier data points which mean nothing for something.
