The problem is it TOTALLY depends on someone's setup. I mean 4k really doesn't matter for some people, they are too far back on too small of a screen, or maybe they just don't notice or have questionable vision.
For those of us with big screens, and especially when we zoom 2.35 in to get rid of the bars, 4k is just as good as going from 720p to 1080p, there is an inherent difference in sharpness.
I don't even own a 4k projector, but I know that just by zooming, just zoom until the picture is smaller and looks sharper. If it looks noticeably sharper after you zoom down and refocus, then you need 4k, it really is that simple. The problem is so many movies are pseudo 4k, not all, but a lot. The good ones are often expensive, for me personally I'm still hoping this stuff becomes more mainstream so I don't have to buy a bunch of movies in 4k, but I'm sure streaming 4k is pretty good. I have watched quite a bit of 4k on a TV, but I'm really not comfortable enough to sit close enough for it to really matter all that much, it helps slightly at my seating distance on some content.
E-shift isn't as good as 4k, never was, never will be, it was maybe halfway there IMO, but I only saw it at a dealer, don't own an e-shift JVC.'
The problem with this forum is all the 'blanket' statements. If you are sitting 8' from a 140" screen (and believe me, some are), you are right e-shift 4k will not look as good as native 4k, it won't even be that close. Now, if you are sitting 12' from a 100" screen, you probably couldn't even pick out the difference in a double blind test.
To some of us, contrast really is very important.
