Plan to move your couch a little closer to get the full benefit of that 4k. 2 feet from the screen should be optimal.

I can't wait to see one and confirm for myself if the difference is worth the investment.
Don't think I'll ever own one.

This is probably as good a time as any to repost this again some more:



Since I don't have 20/20 vision and I'm not going to sit 4 feet from my TV, I think I'll pass.

At my new place I'm shooting for 100+ inches at 10 feet. But will definitely be moving over to a projector.

If I had never seen a retina display I would probably pass on the subject altogether.
After seeing how more pixels can/does benifit a display I'll eagerly await my first 4K experience.
We have the perfect opportunity to install a projector and screen and we both agree it would be nice to have the option to look out the window our TV is currrently blocking (+/-50%).
The veiwing distance would be 10-12'. The screen will cover the 94"x60" window and then some.
If we renew in October we'll be leaning in this direction.

720 works now. 1080 would be nice. 4K would be cool but likely a cash grab for in home use. Naturally I want it.

Your retina display is much closer to your eyes that a TV or projector screen. You don't need more pixels per inch than your eye can distinguish. The resolution is wasted.

Exactly. Even the name of the "Retina" display is telling. It's designed to match the resolving power of light focused on the retina from its normal viewing distance.

That's what the chart above is showing too.

Its about perception. Tricking the mind. Believing you're there.
Its already achievable, obviously. It can be better.
I say the more detail the better.
Except when watching the Olympics. I don't care to see flapping skin on a diver again.
