Who cares what theory says, or what someone on a website says.
Besides, maybe I want to sit 3 feet away from the screen and not see pixels. You would be amazed how immersive it is, like your own private imax
I apologize, I shouldn't have used the word useless which does give that impression I was referring to you directly. My brain and what comes out of my fingers aren't always the same. I'm just saying we all have different perceptions and want things for different reasons.
My brother hates watching movies with the 240hz motion thingamajiggy turned on, the "soap opera" thing people talk about. He says it just looks too real. I like it for that reason. He wants it to look "like a movie". Nothing has changed, other than more frames have been generated and inserted. ( please don't pick this statement apart, it's not the point really ). I would bet there is some similar "it looks different but I can't tell why but I like it/ hate it" effect of watching a 4k picture on a smallish 55-60screen, which scientifically perhaps the eyes shouldn't be able to tell a difference, but maybe the brain can tell something is different. Just a guess. Or maybe the placebo effect is in effect, either way, you like it, you want it, you can afford it, get it. Looking forward to the tech filtering down to mere mortal levels so I can find out!
