So what you are saying is that 8K looks indistinguishable from real life?
I think over the next 5-10 years the trend will be to up to 70-90" screens so the higher Rez will illustrate itself in most homes. In the 6-10 years before 8k is available for home consumption, most folks will have evolved to their second gen hd set, and they won't be staying at 36-48" screens but will be looking to double that.
If it were me, I'd pass on this new consumer versions of 4k, unless you're a 3 d fan, and hold out for oled (first), and then 8k (next)
How much are those 70+" HDTVs going to cost? What's the cheapest price for a 65" HDTV today?
Consumers are having issues spending $100 for a BD player and paying the upcharge over what a DVD costs today. What is going to motivate them to start spending thousands of dollars for an HDTV when most today look to spend less than $1000? Do you see the economy maiking a huge improvement in the next 5 years? I don't.
