He's got some buyers remorse and is psyching himself up that no, this was the best available and it will never be any better!
    Buyer's remorse? I got the 55" TV for free from an office move raffle. I have no remorse over $0.

    Rear projection? It was an LCD and a damned fine one too (the previous TV).

    The real question is whether to buy an HDR TV. (The answer is no. I'll wait until prices drop. I'm not cheap for little things, but I am cheap for expensive things like TVs and cars and houses.)

    I didn't say there's nothing better. I said with this setup image quality cannot get better, because that's factually true.

    I do think you are quite ethnically insane however as well if you think that 1080p is "as good as it gets".
    You apparently can't read.

    For the 4th damned time: With THIS exact screen size, at THAT exact distance, this level of AA at 1080p is as good as it gets. Not overall... come on. Focus.

    personally, i'm blown away by 4kon my 65" KS8000 vs my 2006 56" DLP.
    even my wife comments how much better L&O:SVU looks.
    HDR is nice but i find it abused like bloom most times, some content is better than others.

    you are supposed to sit closer to 4K TV's to see a difference but i disagree somewhat

    That calculator asks for your current vision info! Do people bring their latest eye-test results to Best Buy when picking out a TV?

    I think we're trending into "silliness" territory.. a 4x increase in pixel density is difficult to dismiss, even if, from a gaming perspective, it's not always the best use of available horsepower. I like what Horizon does, they were able to increase the resolution over 1080p, add HDR, better texture filtering and not take anything away from the game.

    Yes, but it probably cuts the other way. It's basically implying that you'll need 20/20 to appreciate the difference from one different, and that you'll need to be even closer to notice the difference if you have worse vision.

    There is a scientific limitation at some point, and a lot of these references are saying we're basically upon it (i.e. to appreciate 4K, you have to have a big screen, and you have to sit close). "I see it" vs "I don't see it" on this topic appears to be a surrogate for "It matters" vs "It doesn't matter" -- and it most certainly doesn't matter, unless you're sitting within the parameters scientifically required for the human eye to detect a difference. On a board like this, some of you are - and some of you aren't. In the real world, few people probably meet the requirements.

    If you get a chance check out Resogun with it's PS4 Pro patch running on a HDR TV. It shows off very nicely how much it's worth it imo
