Professional video engineers clearly state that you need at the very least a 75 incher or more realistic an 80 inch tv to be able to tell the difference.
By the way you are replying you need a bit more maturity.
I have provided enough maturity and continue to receive rehashed answers directed at me.
I mean I'm glad to be the name of 4k to so many but the point is simple.
I provide real world test results.
The calculator is just to estimate. Not a gospel.
It's ok to have an idea. But when there are clear sources available like owners forums it's a choice to stay uneducated about the real world results of the 4k sets.
You have a place with charts and graphs.
You have a place with people who own the sets. Some months. Others a year. More.
Those same owners have top tier 1080p sets of all walks of technology.
We live daily with these sets.
I have 20/15 eyesight. Not the worst ok.
I can tell the difference watching TV on my 65hu9000 all day from 8' to my 1080p 55F8000 in my room. At that at about 10' from my headboard.
I can still see the difference.
Many owners in the 4k forums will gladly tell you the same.
They own f8500, vt60, you name it.
Some has had many 4k sets and will tell you not all are equal.
There are things to understand. That you can't generalize the performance of one 4k set with another.
Yet in this thread I'm ignored when I say that.
Yet 1080p sets have huge variances in quality and performance. No one cares that I mention the same issue exist in the 4k world.
Either way I know that I can tell the difference. So don't generalize us all as the same and realize to me and apparently many others there is a clear difference.
49 out of 50 in that test. With test data. Screen shots.
Yet I guess that. Means nothing in the real world. We should all buy TV off of manufacturers descriptions and review sites who have become so saturated with one review after another they simply copy and paste the reviews and make a few changes to keep readers and get a pay check.
They have bills too. But they really don't spend the time to know a set. And we are the ones stuck with them for years.
So yes I always say see it in person for yourself. And ask real owners. Charts isn't enough for me.
