    ....to please the eyes with. Personally I love resolution, but we're not at 4K yet :cool:

    On a side note....
    I read a Digitimes article (it now demands login to be accessed unfortunately)
    Anyway, it said that Sharp and Foxconn (Foxconn bought shares in Sharp a while ago so they are working together on this particular panel) were working on a panel to be used in TV's that was going to have 4K Res, but the price tag was only going to be set at around 1000$ :eek:

    True or not...let's see in the future *puppy*

    Though why the negative tone? :)

    Not a negative tone, but at 3 m distance, your eye cannot perceive the difference between 1080p or twice that. Makes sense for large outdoor screens, but for home usage, just hype.

    Sure, but you can always move around the furniture a little to increase the 3 M.....:) Or kick in a wall :p

    Well I know what you mean, but it would still feel cool to have a TV with a 4K panel. And who knows maybe it will get useful for other things than traditional TV watching.

    I mean the next generation Gaming Consoles plus a 4K TV......It surely must open new doors in this area. :D

    You didn't shoot anything down. You used your personal example as a generalization, which is perfectly normal.

    please look up what the word 'generalization' means as i have not generalized in this thread.

    that is generalizing. if you added "except people who sit far away from big screen TV's" then you would not have been generalizing.

    If I had the choice between getting that TV for free and paying for a laptop with dual slide out 2560 * 1440 screens, Id take the laptop. That would make for one hell of a mobile workstation.

    Though keep in mind that this resolution is well above todays standard HD resolution or 1080P. So when ever the Broadcasters will be able to to broadcast channels in 8K Resolution is the big question I think. :D

    And it will most likely happen via Satellites at first, but I don't know if any of the satellites that are in use today (in any parts of the world) will be able to handle the capacity that it will require.

    that was tested at 1080p resolution. the numbers change at other resolutions. which is why you sit much closer to the screen in the cinema (screen size to distance relation). optimum distance is unrelated to loss of detail.

    check out this link to see how 4k systems would provide a visible difference over 1080p over certain distances.

    the way i see it, to buy a 4k screen of any type will cost alot of money and people with alot of money tend to have bigger rooms then the average person
