Pointless at the present time in my opinion. Why showcase something that isn't affordable by the majority of people.

...and Given that 4K is the highest resolution you'll see even on a large cinema screen, it seems even more pointless at present!

Someone will buy one at £12k just so they can flaunt it then they will be ~£2k in a year.

Last time I watched 2001 A Space Odyssey I lost off about 45 minutes from the end, I was doing well until that point.

The last time something was released on a ridiculous format I think it was Das Boot on Laserdisc.

"what the hell you want to go around that river for?"
Because it's there!! Lol

I suppose a small child with perfect eyesight might get the benefit, bit I can't see past normsl HD, or hear past 128bps MP3's :)

I see a massive difference between HD and 4K but struggle between upscaled HD and 4K without a comparison.
