Done it this year. It is really good, and made me watch movies again, even old ones we watched before. I am in market to buy a sub $1000 4k camera/video camera to provide our own 4k content.

Let me know about the camera. That sounds like good fun. Is your tv curved? I am on the fence on that points.

Yes, my TV is curved. It made all the difference in the buying decision. Best Buy had one curved and a non curved Samsung TV side by side for demo. To make a long story short, you can see more (peripheral area) with curved TV. You can also sit closer, making the TV even larger.

I've checked out two sub $100k 4k cameras. One is from GoPro, and another from Panasonic (Lumix FZ1000). There are lots of video demos/reviews on YouTube which I checked out with my 4k UHD TV. For its price, it seems to be good enough. Professional grade 4k camera is too cumbersome and out of my LBYM budget.

I dunno. Not all reviews are positive on that.

Just this year, we replaced our 10+ year old 46" Samsung DLP. We now have a 50" LG backlit LED. My, has technology changed! There is no comparison at all. At about 1/4 the cost, the LG is light years ahead of the Samsung.
