agreed with talk. you cats on this forum are WAAAAY in the minority...
how many average people have a $20K projector?? the majority of you cats on here have tons of disposable cash for sure, so of course it makes sense for you to feel 4K is whats needed out there.
I am definitely not a big dog as many of you are and will stay on the porch and watch you guys handle the business. its cool, though, for me, a middle class american, reading how cool it is to have a 12ft screen in ones room and even for ones wife to notice 4K! well sure if her man is a purist and has the money to have a 4K setup then im sure your wife will eventually get it.
I am in the movie industry (work with the phantom camera, F900, f35, Arri, Panavision...) and i am a steadicam operator. my mom can NOTICE when a sequence is shot on Steadi vs. a dolly or jib, etc. i tell her to "look at the horizon". she knows what to look for in a frame to judge if its a steadicam. how many of you cats can differentiate between steadi and a dolly?
"whats your point marc???". ok ok ok..
my point is you guys know what higher resolution is because you know what to look for. you spend your time with the best of the best in toys so its natural for you to see slight differences in PQ from one player to the next.. from one display to the next... the average person (me) does not have access to the best toys money can by so those subtle differences get lost.
i love and enjoy this site and reading these discussions. keeps me balanced.
and sure the 790 may be a big difference from the 590, but what of the 780???
