The jump in picture quality from standard definition to 1080P was huge. Based on my viewing of the Sony 84" 4K TV, the jump from 1080P is very small, unless you get closer than normal viewing distance. When I got about 9 feet away from that 84" 4K TV, it absolutely looked like a 1080P signal. If you plan on sitting less than 3 or 4 feet from an 84" screen then yes, you definitely need 4K.

Maybe we all will end up with 110" panels in our living spaces and thus need the 4k resolution.

Pre-HD, very few people had 50+" TV's in their house.

It may seem rediculous now but norms charge with the times.

1080p, 2.35 content using the zoom method on my 113” screen looks softer than 16:9 full frame on 92”. I’ll agree it’s not as noticeable as DVD was to VHS or standard def to HD. But then I didn’t think there was a big jump from DVD to blu-ray on a 52” LCD sitting 10-12’ away. DVD’s look significantly different at 10’ away and 92” or 113”.

4k for projectors once content is available will be noticeable on larger screens like some have here 120”-160”. 4k on a 48”-52” TV at normal viewing distances is worthless.

Totally agree, for projection 4k will be great. TV's... I don't see them getting big enough to see the benefit.

I see sports pushing 4k, at least on the broadcast front. I've seen people shrug at the difference between dvd and bluray or not even notice that they are on the sd cable channel when there is an hd version available. But come football season, those same people can really tell the difference between a sd and hd signal. I read articles about the 8k test showings at the Olympics and the description being like looking through a window.
4k or 8k at 70+ inches might even make me care about football...
