Wow! Just think, then you'd never have to eat or s*** again.......! :grinthumb

Super high def....multi-monitor....Photo-realistic gaming...3D..I would hazard a guess that the next step in technology is going to be going outside and having a catch with your son.

I personally experienced an HDTV for several months, then went back to a standard definition. The difference I noticed was negligible, and the money that was spent buying an HDTV would have been much better spent buying 32 extra gigs of RAM.
And I hate to break it to some of you Xbox 360 fans, not many games play at 1080p. The "High Definition" effect is mostly created by the skill of marketers, not screen resolution.
Do not facepalm too hard--I do agree that there are certain resolutions which are un-work/view-able.
But I have to agree with the author--I just do not see what all the hype is about.

I have 3 HDTVs and the picture quality isn't really that much greater over standard def at 1080p. I'm sorry, it looks great, but nothing to knock my socks off. DVDs still look fine in high def and yes, I do own a blu-ray. My TVs are plasma and LCD and the plasmas are much better than the LCD.

In this area I think we'll have to go with the saying "To each his own" because not everyone can agree or feel the same way about any one thing. Some people place greater importance on things like video resolution or fidelity (like me) and some don't care that much about it and place other things/features at greater need. Another thing is not everyone's eyesight is the same. My best friend is pretty much blind without his glasses and doesn't really seem to care much at all whether a show he's watching is in HD or not. He also doesn't care if his games are at 720p or 1080p or even 1920x1200... or even his desktop resolution for that matter.

Personally, I refuse to watch non-HD footage anymore and have started the very slow and expensive (both time and money) process of re-acquiring my important films in HD formats. I do all my handheld video recording on an HD camcorder and when channel surfing I start at 1111 (where my HD channels start.) I would love to see what this set looks like as well as what the source footage is and what it was recorded with (Red I assume.)

Totally overrated!

1. It only benefits going above 1080P on a panel starting from 50" and above.
2. A 4K panel offers perfect quality for up to 100" panel in size.
3. The difference between 4K and 8K on 85" panel is impossible to see, unless with a zooming glass, couple inch from the screen, like that guy on the photo.

I'd rather see 1080P on a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in the future, is where it is really needed, because 720P for 5.5" screen isn't top-notch.
