No, not with that logic 720P would be the same as 1080P. Where did you even get that from?

As I said, and this is a known fact - the human eye, from average viewing distances, is unable to discern the differences between 1080P and 4K. NOT from 720P to 1080P, which the human eye IS able to discern. And yes, I have seen a 4K tv up close. They look amazing when you are 1, 2, 3 feet away, but thats not a realistic viewing distance. With a comparable 1080P tv, side-by-side, same screen size, at the recommended viewing distance, which I think it 8 - 10 feet, I could not see a difference. The colours were more vibrant on the 4K, probably because of contrast ratios, however the sharpness and over all image quality were the same.

I'm all for moving forward too, and I'm all for new technologies - but when our optic tool, our eye, is unable to clearly and visibly see a difference? (again, at the recommended viewing distance) In that case, I would be all for improving the current tech.

I couldn't see a difference. The 4K tv was brighter, and the yellows were more vibrant, but the quality of the movement and image was the same.
