* I missed this originally. Thank you. After reading and going to the calculator, it brings me comfort to know that I am at least a foot below the maximum range for 4K. Even better when I read this part: "The viewer can see some of the increased detail in a 4K image if they sit anywhere in the range between the ideal 4K and 1080p distances." I'm in that range. It's on the high end but still in the range.

It is INSANE. The jump is amazing.
*Awesome! The Itch is back!

Excellent question. I assume the article is talking about native 4K as "TV/Monitors" is part of the title.

So if I understand correctly:
- I'm not in the "optimal" distance for true 4k resolution benefits but still below the maximum distance. So I'm kinda cool with that. +1
- I thought I read somewhere that a decent 4k projector will provide some (not much) benefit to my existing blu-ray collection. That's a bit of a bummer. -1
- All the bells and whistles (minus the 4K sharpness) will make a vast difference between my 1080p plu-ray and its 4k counterpart. That's exciting! +1
It looks like I'm leaning towards getting it. So...
I guess the only question left to ask is: if the 5050UB was a native 4K projector, would any of these variable change? If so, should I wait knowing my existing configuration?
