well okay then ozi - i guess we'll soon see. I was able to purchase that box for about 57.00 which isn't bad if I am still gonna have to upgrade the TV. Here's another option, a neighbor mentioned that I hadn't considered. He has a BenQ Projector and a motorized 120 inch screen in his lounge room.
In fact, he actually converted his lounge room into a damn theatre. Comes complete with carpet and Red Curtains and Bose Surround Sound and says, the average file size for a movie is about 12GB, apparently these projectors are capable of playing those high resolutions 4K etc as well as 3D which looked quite stunning when he demonstrated. He sealed up his front door FFS as well as the windows and has just enough room for the ceiling mounted projector on one end and the 120 inch retractable screen on the other, he watched regular TV elsewhere...
How bout that?
projector is a great option if you have a spacious room
problem is with 4k if your relying on great quality video thats been encoded then you can also be letting yourself down
iv downloaded a lot of 4k encoded files from people that rip 4k only at cleanest quality possible they look excellent on pc
but will it look the same projected or on a tv? i cant tell you that im betting just like everything thats encoded there will be some quality loss
its like when wow nice quality 1080p rip from your favorite encoder
then you buy the movie on bluray and never watch the encoded movie you downloaded again because the quality is no comparison to the uncompressed disc version
netflix are cheap and offer ultra high quality 4k so thats one option of viewing them in pure 4k
the other option well you know how much approx they costs each
personally if i was to go all out and wanted all of this i wouldn't waste my time on encoded files defeats the purpose of what i would be expecting from the quality experience
