Is artificially sharper than reality. What is the point to HD 4000? To be appear more artificial?

It wouldn't appear as anything because your eye can only see so much detail. As far as the TV and other media goes that depends on your viewing distance. The average human eye can see about 250 to 300dpi at "viewing distance" where viewing distance would be where you would hold a photo when looking at it. the optimal size for A 1080 screen at this distance would be a mere 8in. A 4k TV would be double that and you could have TV about 16 inches wide at that distance.

As you move backwards from the screen the physical size of the display needs to increase if you want to see the same detail. These new TV's are really beginning to push the envelope on what is practical but depending on the physical size and viewing distance not quite to the limits of the human eye.

1080P is good enough for me. Before getting a higher resolution set, I'll require higher resolution eyes.
