Based on my experience, watching Prime streaming in 4K and UHD on a 65inch LCD (Sony Z9D) makes quite a lot of difference vs 1080p

Agreed on a PJ and big screen (100inches) quality of source is really important. Typically it's better to go for HEVC encodes regardless of file size as you'll usually get better quality overall since X265 is far more efficient than X264.

Well if one are streaming or playback from your storage or media centre , even if having the best 4k cables and a TRUE 4k chip or UHD chip Projector and the best projection screen the image cannot beat the 4K player with 4K disc .

Just to note, the 4K HDR content from the Apple iTunes store off and Apple TV 4 can reach a higher level of definition and color than Netflix. So, the 4K picture depends on at least 3 things. 1. The content provider (Netflix, iTunes, UHD Blu Ray) 2. The display system (OLED, Projector) 3. The playback device (UHD Blu Ray, Apple TV, Nvidia Shield)

congsterz... good site,  this is also why some times when you watch 4k HDR movies at time you find the picture is a bit grainy .

Titles like John Wick still only HD IIRC
