All true, but I'm old enough that I can't even SEE in 4k, so until & unless somebody comes up with bionic eyes all that's wasted on me. Regular 1920x1080p HD is about my limit. They gave me 96dpi widescreens at work last time they updated my workstation & I had to increase the font size because I couldn't read anything anymore. Kind of a good news, bad news thing goin' on there. Anyway, for me the convenience of files trumps the quality of discs/players. I'll probably never upgrade to 4k or whatever they're calling the SCFE UHD resolution(s) beyond that. I literally can't see the benefits, and like you say the file sizes and bandwidth requirements are huge. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
