I'll be honest, the advance of 4K has made me reluctant to make new Blu-ray purchases. I want this, but then I'm sure it will get a 4K re-release in two years. (I have no actual evidence this will...

1. Never looks washed out
2. Rich colors
3. Few motion artifacts
4. Much thinner designs
5. Potential for flexible/rollable designs
