I was sold on 4K until I actually did some additional research and used the 4K calculator. I then did a test at Best Buy and stood 13 feet back (my seating distance) rather than 3-5 feet back, and compared looking at a 1080P screen, and 4K screen.
The 4K screen looked a bit better, but absolutely not $1500+ better. The calculator showed that at my seating distance, I would only tell a noticeable difference if my TV was greater than 120". After doing a self-test at Best Buy, I can definitely tell you there is some truth to that.
If you sit about 5 feet or less from your TV, you'll benefit. If not, you may strongly want to reconsider getting 4K, at least until prices come to a better price point like the Vizio P Series.
