Yes, contrast has a major impact too, but resolution - or shall we say a more fine grid on the canvas makes a huge difference. Try drawing something on microsoft paint, then go to a fine grid in Adobe illustrator.
Profound impact ? Really.
I saw the Sony sitting side by side with a 1080P variant with the same content on it and was unimpressed unless I got within a couple feet.
You gonna sit that close ?
Good luck getting actual 4k content.
With the state of content and what it is going to take to get "on demand" programming
that we know we all want 4k is a marketing gimmick.
Follow along little sheep and give me your money........
Don't forget to ask what you can actually watch in native 4k while you are overpaying............
