Again, you're arguing for the sole purpose of being argumentative. If you'd like to argue or disagree that's fine but the only case you've made is to make an example of a fake resolution for a fake TV to try and make your point. Your very posting style is evident of your need to argue as you only quote specific lines from my posts and ignore the parts that are inconvenient for you. On other forums we have a word for this type of post-- but I've been warned so I'll just say I have no more interest in entertaining you.
For anyone living in the real world here is some information about contrast and why it is so important. The first is a quote from none other than Joel Silver, president and founder of the ISF or the-people-who-define-what-an-accurate-picture-is.
While the industry is pushing for higher and higher resolutions with new 4K TVs, the president and founder of the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF), Joel Silver, still maintains that resolution isn't the most important factor in good picture quality.
Speaking at the Panasonic Convention 2014 in Amsterdam this week, Silver said that for the ISF, which drives standards for the TV industry and trains professional calibrators, "the fourth and least of our four key parameters is resolution."
"There’s some controversy within the industry as to where resolution sits. But, for us, the single most apparent thing you see is dynamic range.
However, Silver was at pains to point out that this doesn't mean there are no benefits to 4K TVs. On the contrary, he believes 4K TVs have a role to play in improving all aspects of TV picture quality, not just the amount of detail.
"We’re constantly compromised by losing three-quarters of the colour information that comes to our television," Silver explained. "Even with Blu-ray we’re only getting one in every four pixels of colour information."
"We’ll finally go beyond that one day with Ultra High Definition and get all the colour information."
Silver also praised Panasonic for being the first consumer TV brand to adhere to the ITU's new standard for gamma, which he explained will have a serious impact in improving the quality of dark scenes in films and TV.
"Panasonic’s 2014 TVs are the first consumer products I know of that follow ITU's specification on gamma. Basically we’re talking shadow detail here; it affects the bottom end of our greyscale. Imagine going through the dark spaces in a new way… the details and the blacks will be forever changed.”

"The ISF mantra was: Dynamic Range
, Color Saturation, Colorimetry, and Resolution."
"The conclusive evidence as to why TV contrast ratio is important comes down to the amount of "breathing room" a television can give its on-screen content. You could watch the same movie side-by-side on two different TVs, and have entirely different aesthetic experiences, because one TV has twice the contrast ratio as the other. A star sitting high in a cloudless sky is most impressive when the star's imminent brightness is framed by the inversely positioned darkness; because contrast ratio handles both ends of the light-dark spectrum, the larger contrast ratio is always going to look more realistic.
Regardless of actual luminance levels, a very bright TV with a narrow contrast ratio will also have a bright minimum luminance, and be unable to create a truly black backdrop for the star to shine against. Conversely, a very dark TV with a narrow contrast ratio will have dim, greyish peak luminance, and be unable to realistically create the massive luminance of the star. Only by achieving both realistic darkness and realistic brightness is a television poised to properly recreate real life.
