I needed to get a new TV the other day. So I looked everywhere through the internet. I need 4K, I thought. You can't buy a new Tv right now without 4K, right? But then it began. There are cheap 4K TVs for like 500 €, but those don't have HDR. They say they have HDR, but they don't have a 10-bit-panel and people told me I need that. So, I looked for 10-bit TVs. Couldn't get one for less than 800 €. That's too much for me. But I don't want to buy something inferior. In the end I didn't know what to fucking buy.

You know what I did? I just got an used 1080p TV. 40 inches, Full HD for just 50 bucks. The thing is 7 years old but it works flawlessly. No smart TV bullshit, which is a plus for me, because I like to keep my data to myself. Plus, it cost literally next to nothing and I still had a huge pile of cash to spend on other things such as games! I will stick to that sucker until it breaks down. Maybe in 3 or 4 years 4K TVs with 10 bit or 12 bit or whatever are cheaper. Until then I'm good with 1080p.

On my notebook I have a 1080p screen anyways. But on my MacBook the resolution is a little higher 2880x1440 I think? I'm not sure. Nor do I care. xP

No thanks, I am still good with 1080p. :)

Gimme 60 fps first, better lighting and effects second, more objects on screen third, and resolution last. I definitely realize the benefit of higher res displays but the returns on resolutions over 2K are so, so small comparative to 480 to 1080p.

With 20/20 vision, you have to be within 5 feet of a 40 inch display for 4K to yield benefit over 1080p. You have to be within 3 feet of a 60 inch display to get the full benefit of 4K.

Personally, I would like to up to a 4K projector in a few years, as I can definitely see individual pixels on 1080p within 9 feet from my screen (120 inches).

(640 x 480) 480p is 307200 pixels
(1920 x 1080) 1080p is 2073600 pixels
That is a 6.75 times increase in pixel count going from 480p to 1080p.
(3840 x 2160) 4k is 8294400 pixels.
A 4x increase over 1080p.
(5120 x 2880) 5k is 14745600 pixels.
A 7.1 times increase in pixel count when going from 1080p to 5k.
Clearly, 4k is not as impressive of a jump going from a 480p - 1080p, but it is also much easier to drive.
A more accurate comparison is going from 1080p to 5k, percentage scaling wise.

5K Anyone?

Not exactly comfortable looking. It's not meant as a consumer product anyway, enterprise solutions for now.
