That's not all there is to PQ though. The real benefit to UHD is high dynamic range, wide colour gamut and improved colour depth.

I've heard some say HDR on a good HDR display is much more impressive than the jump from 1080p to 4K, or even DVD to Blu-ray.

I have yet to see it in action myself, but I'm excited.
HDR can be amazing if done right. My favorite UHD so far PQ wise is The Shallows. Even though it only has a 2K master it looks gorgeous and better that movies do at my theater (have a crappy local one so maybe not saying much lol)

This remains the key thing for me. With my 65" JS8500, the optimal viewing distance for 1080p material is 9 ft (which delivers stunning imagery, I have to say), and I can't fathom wanting to sit any closer than that (and I don't even typically sit at that distance, as my couch is more like 12-13 ft away).

Based on what I've read, the optimal viewing distance for 4K material on my set would be something like 5-6 feet away. That truly just doesn't appeal to me.

As for HDR, I know many are blown away by it - but I just don't get it. I've seen it for myself, so I know what people are talking about with regard to it. But it just doesn't seem like the second coming to me, as it does with other people.
