In the latest Singpost spam delivered Sony awesome tottori they post this in the TV section...WTF are you thinking SONY???

I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Life is short! Enjoy the music while it plays, when it stops, there might be a chair for you...or  maybe not.

Actually I have read and heard that LCD is brighter than OLED

https://www.cnet.com/how-to/led-lcd-vs-oled/

Extract:
Light output (brightness)
Winner: LCD
Loser: OLED
Take this category with a grain of salt. Both TV types are very bright and can look good in even a sunny room, let alone more moderate indoor lighting situations or the dark rooms that make TV images look their best. When it comes down to it, no modern TV could ever be considered "dim."

LCD gets the nod here specifically because the whole screen can be brighter, a function of its backlight. OLED can't do a full screen with as much brightness. Full-screen brightness isn't very important in the real world however, so this category is a relatively hollow victory for LCD.

Light output also plays a big part in High Dynamic Range (HDR), which we'll discuss a little later.


And here:
https://www.digitaltrends.com/home-theater/oled-vs-led/

Extract:
Brightness
When it comes to brightness, LED TVs have a considerable advantage. LEDs were already good at getting extremely bright, but the addition of quantum dots allows them to get even brighter. OLED TVs can get pretty bright, too, and with such dark blacks, contrast between the brightest and darkest spots on screen is all the more exaggerated. However, cranking OLED pixels to their maximum brightness for extended periods not only reduces their lifespan, but the pixel also takes slightly longer to return to total black.

With those considerations in mind, it’s important to note that all modern TVs — OLED, LED/LCD, or otherwise — produce more than adequate brightness. The consideration then becomes where the TV will be used. In a dark room, an OLED TV is going to perform best, while LED TVs will outshine them (quite literally) in more brightly lit environments.

It should also be noted that Sony introduced some incredibly bright OLED models in 2018, and LG’s next-gen OLEDs are also impressively bright, making them perfectly suitable for nearly any situation, save direct sunlight beaming onto the screen. Still, when compared directly, LED still has the edge.

Winner by a nose: LED/LCD

I believe it's based on THX's recommendation.

I think it's the distance that our eyes can differentiate 4k from lower resolution properly.
At 3m, our eyes cannot differentiate between 4k and 1080 resolution.
Imo....

Or it is recommendation based on our eyes viewing angle of about 50 degrees, so if our view is full of TV, that's the distance.

It could be a printing error. Let Sony know the probable error and you could be rewarded.😁

Many years ago, I highlighted a technical error in the brochure of the newly launched models of Sony CD player and Sony Singapore was so grateful that they gave me a 50% discount of their third top ES model.

The fact is that most of us are sitting too far away to enjoy the full benefits of 4k. Esp our non HT enthusiasts..

First time I fired up a 4k blu ray on my 4k projector I was underwhelmed, I felt like no difference, it was later when I played back a normal FHD Blu Ray then I felt everything was no longer crispy sharp and now am hooked to playing 4k Blu Rays only....damn this is getting expensive.
