Yes, 4K on a 60" at 13 feet away is a gimmick, however, movies is not a trivial category to ignore PQ on, even for restored classics. Dolby Vision/True HDR on a quality high nit output TV is a huge improvement for most anyone in double blind studies on even smaller screens at a greater distance, especially using the newer quantum dot technology. Black levels they probably won't notice, especially on the edge lit QD TVs coming into the market. Keep in mind, Dolby Vision/HDR streaming and eventually cable/satellite box options are fast arriving and will soon enough be mainstream while 4K blueray is already on cheap consoles as well. Once people see it on quality TVs during football games and such it will be a mad rush for 2200 nit sets. These are not always expensive either- maybe the TCL P will be a long term keeper once we get a measured light output on it. Hisense/Sharp, Phillips, TCL, Vizio and LeEco have access (this year at least) to the same tech Samsung is using for the grossly over priced Q9/Q7s.
