Thanks, guys. Yes, I missed the window of opportunity on plasma. Panasonic is done with them, and I think Samsung will be at the end of 2014, too. LG doesn't market anything above 60".

Given my room configuration and viewing habits, I'm not convinced that 4k will EVER make a meaningful difference for me. Maybe for a projector some day. But I just don't see myself regularly sitting closer than 8 feet from a 65" screen.

But what if it were a movie about dwarf children and their Chihuahua puppies? What then, Tom, what then?

To me, the 4K isn't about something that's better, it's just about getting the latest good quality thinga-ma-jig in TV's.

You think I'd be REGULARLY watching it? It would have to be the Godfather II of the dwarf/chihuahua genre.

Did anyone else look at that chart and think "oh crap, I need a new projector" ?

Personally, I'm having a hard time thinking that I'd just be starting to see the difference between a 720 and a 1080 on a 100 inch screen at 15 foot.

It's hard to say -- I'm currently playing BluRay disks through a 720p projector on a 100 inch screen at about 12 feet and I have to walk closer to the screen before I can see any indication of pixels. Not exactly the same thing but if I had a 1080p projector to do A/B testing with I would just retire the 720p and use the 1080p anyways wink

I'd love to jump in a pick up a new (native) 4K PJ.
According to the chart we're sitting in a good spot for 1080P, 105" @ 12.5'.
When my PJ is sent a native 1080P signal it looks amazing.
Especially when watching cartoons, ex. Planes,Cars,Rio,TMNT. Some amazingly detailed moments.
Think I might drop it down to 95" and try it out.

Get back on topic!

j/k. I always think about a projector, but just can't make it work in my current house.
