Wow $799 for the Panasonic. I paid $999 about a month ago from NL with 2x free movies in the box. I should have waited...but im very,very happy with the player. Very slick with a great backlit remote.

Was hoping for a Warehouse labor weekend sale on Blus, but doesn't appear to be happening.

Now i'm confused. I read somewhere that cinematic 4k = 4096x2160 ... 4K TVs however come in 3840x2160 ... what is the resolution on 4K blu ray?

3840 x 2160 to any public media basically, otherwise known as uhd but also called 4k, native 4096 x 2160 is basically for photos or content creators...

Thanks, now that confuses me even more. It says UHD is going and 4K is staying. But then he says UHD is evolving to be renamed as 4K, pushing the original 4K away. Ok so 3840 is staying and 4096 is going. RIght?

Not sure how 8K is going to get traction. That means consumer purchase of even bigger TV sizes* would be needed presumably? BUT apartments and houses are getting smaller over time ... or not?

 

 

 

*Back in the days of the 20" TV ... then when DVD came the standard size went to 29" then Bluray and people went 42" standard ... UHD-4K sounds like a 55" standard ... UHD-8K - ?? 70-80"??

UHD-4K is 65" in order to see any proper difference, 55" exists but it a waste of space

Not entirely true.  HDR is a feature of UHD, which you can see a difference on a smaller screen.

After having a 55" 1080 and suffering the screendoor effect to a massive degree on it, I would never do that again. The smoothness of a 4k even with only 4x the pixels is so much nicer to look at. Not sure I would bother on a low 40" range but for a 55" is well worth it. Now if only they would get the Hz up on the 4k ones so that there is less flicker.
