Replying to: 4K Video is a useless tech by Tofuchong
Re: 4K Video is a useless tech
Personally I like it when technology goes well beyond the point I'm told my senses cannot tell the difference because I often can experience the differences. If you go well beyond that point then you probably really are safely at a point where improvements have no benefits.
For example, I was told DLP TVs were wonderful because almost no one could see the rainbow effect the tech produced. I could and had a hard time watching those sets. We're often told that 128mbs MP3s are CD quality, but I can often tell the difference. That being said, why hasn't the CD standard been improved for audio-only media? Many claim to hear issues with it. Likewise, people couldn't see the encoding effects on the old SD images Dish Network TV produced, but I could.
Basically when "the experts" claim that you won't notice the improvement then you need to go at least to the next level because "the experts" are often wrong, and if you just take it one more level then you really ensure you really are beyond the level people will notice.
I believe your position would be better served by saying the improvements in the video quality are too small to justify the downsides the improved tech requires: i.e. the cost, increased sizes of the sets (I'm assuming this is bigger), higher costs to pay for the increased electrical demands (again, assumption on my part). Dismissing 4X as useless tech like Twitter or Instagram is very unfair!
