I cannot argue. because I cannot click play.
If anyone knows what dumb is, it's the most retarded youtuber on earth. So I'll have to agree.

Also, his voice makes me want to strangle a small dog!
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

Basically, his gist is that most 4K displays can only display up to 60fps, which make them inferior to anything that can do better than that. And even if you get one that does go higher, buying a rig that can run it is cost prohibitive.

So his logic is sound despite the clickbait title.

I've never really been that interested in 4K. 1080p still looks plenty good enough for me.

4K on a 55” TV is definitely noticible when the screen isn’t moving rapidly. There is a chrispness on images when they are still or slow moving. But it’s just not worth turning down other visual effects just to keep the frame rate.
