    For a TV to look sharp you need to check it is 4:4:4 chroma, otherwise the text will be blurred even a 4K one.

    @Pooper, can you please predict a category 5 hurricane, followed by 3 feet of snow and a subsequent melt and devastating flood event.

    It would be nice to have great weather.

    TIA.
