Ok dad, if you say so.
Don't worry about my locale, it's about as topical and material as you announcing my purported embarrassment.
My apologies to all in advance for this post, back to the topic...
(Oh, I only asked about where you were from as I always like to compare the various America/American bashers from around the world, or within the USA, just kind of a side-interest of mine....and sure, some of that bashing is deserved.....I'll give you that!
So, yes back to the topic, of you preaching an opinion (that you are of course entitled to), but then essentially belittling those that might have a countering opinion or experience, perhaps not directly but the intent seems clear to me. Do you have a 4K projector? It doesn't seem you do as you indicated you are waiting for a price drop on them. Maybe that's old info. I'm just wondering how you are making the comparisons....
....because I just don't find 4K to be the waste you claim it to be, it's pretty obvious the differences (HDR aside even...) between lower resolutions and 4K, even on my teeny-weeny 65" display at 8-9', which theoretically I shouldn't be seeing, as well as practically, according to you, but I am taking in the entire image quite handily, and seeing the advantage of actual 4K content vs. 1080p. It would seem a great deal of other forum members suffer from the same affliction I do - we're seeing things that don't exist? Upscaled Blurays do look good! Not saying they don't, but actual 4K content just ups the game, all without the most massive of screens, sorry you're not getting that benefit from your system (which is quite nice, really - and I mean that sincerely, I did look...)
But didn't people crap all over 4K in very much the same way people are crapping all over 8K without really having the experience of it? How do you KNOW it's a joke, as you claim? Have you experienced it? Are you an 8K expert, engineer, something like that? Or you're just convinced it's marketing only for idiots because more pixels is better to the Neanderthalithic among us? Do you honestly believe that?
It's not just resolution, I think it promises to be a lot more than that. So, yeah. Bring it, nobody is forcing you to buy it. Laugh all you want, I'm enjoying the heck out of 4K on a relatively small screen, and I'll enjoy the heck out of 8K too, so go ahead and lump me in with the rest of the fools you imply us to be, I'm good with that!
