Discusses the misappropriation of the term 4K, the issues with scaling true 4k (4096) masters down to 3840, compression standards, minimum screen size at domestic distances , not buying first gen sets unless they have Display Ports, colour space and frame rates and of course content/content delivery etc etc.
I must watch the video tonight then!
I've only watched the first 10 minutes so far, will give the rest a go later. I think the discussion so far has been a little misguided, as we are talking about televisions not cinema displays. TV resolution formats have always been a result of vertical resolution and aspect ratio. 1920 came about from 1080 at an appropriate ratio. Cinema is already shot in 2k which is 2048x1080 and is already rejiggered to 1920, so I don't see how this 4k issue is new or unexpected. TVs were never going to be a cinema aspect ratio, the demise of Phillips arguably proved that.

I watched about the same amount and was thinking the same. The weak description of how 'fitting 106 lines into a 100 lines messes up all the lines', is exactly the same issue as 1920 x 1080, except x 2. And whilst this may be a problem for a purist (although I can't say I've seen this complaint before), I'm very happy with how blu ray looks.
I also really can't get excited over this complaint of calling it 4k. 'A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.'
I'm still not planning on getting a 4k TV tho.

You have two too many 'Sonys', it was only mentioned 17 times in the article / captions. That'll be 'nottrustedreviews' then.
