Really! with the system and room that you run??? I find that hard to believe!
I think the Sim2 unit that I was going to purchase in '06 was over $22k and I couldn't wait to drop that money on it. Now that the buy in for a 4K PJ has gone from $25k to $15k, I see that as a great trend for the early adopters.
I just need some kind of media that I would be able to rent movies from as over the years I have drooled over the Laser Disk, gave away piles of VHS tapes, gave away over 900 DVDs and a Sony 400 disc changer, had "King Kong" on HD-DVD (guessed that outcome wrong) to now only having hard copies of my kids (and yes mine!) favorites, (Transformers, Star Trek, etc) on Blu-ray.
I used to be at the Blockbuster Blu-ray section a couple of times a week, but they just closed our local one and Hollywood Video has been gone a few years now. So now I just rent from Redbox and have a continual stream from Netflix. With my current ISP, downloading 40 gig 4k movies a few times a week would be tiresome and not really practicable over a course of time. If I can get Comcast to extend their service to one more house (no kidding) I would be able to have much faster download speeds and it would then be viable.
I didn't think that 4K would make that much of a difference and I do have to admit, I have not seen the PJ in action, but that 84" 4K in Vegas reminded me of the "WOW" factor of my first time seeing a 40" tube High-Def TV!
Due to the content delivery issue, I don't see myself going 4K for at least a year, but I can't WAIT!!!! BRING IT ON!!!!
