with all the hype going on and the price dropping..

i'm considering of getting one

but at the moment those Quantum Dot 4K tvs with HDR are around $1400-ish for a 65 in..

it's not exactly cheap

and when you are sitting 12-14 ft away from the tv ?

LG 4k TV about 50" (Maybe 48 or 52, can't recall). Certainly worth it IMO since it's not that expensive these days. We bought it a year ago for around $700.

I've blogged repeatedly that few mainstream consumers really seem to......GET 4K.
http://movieactivist.blogspot.com/2016/09/september-11-2016-ps4-uhd-and-home.html

The more hardcore "I want bigger stuff, because it's cooler!" fans are attracted for the obvious reasons, but those who want average-priced Cool TV's don't really seem to get the point of the upgrade--For $1500-2000, it has to DO something besides "look better".
Plus, throw in Sony dropping the ball on getting a popular-saturating 4K UHD player out there (unlike their putting DVD, Blu-ray and Blu3D in on their last Playstation consoles), and the current "War of dreams" between hardware companies who think that 4K will be Disc, and movie companies who hope 4K will be Streaming, and it's starting to demonstrate that companies simply don't know WHY DVD and Blu-ray caught on like they did. Because they're not consumers, that's why.
(I proposed that there were three tests that a new format of any technology has to pass before it can "replace the old one", like companies are convinced any format will. Which is also the same reason Digital isn't "replacing" Physical Disk any time soon.)

Some of the 4K TV's (not Samsung, obviously) are still 3D compatible, and most of the theatrical movies still come out on Blu3D disk.
If you must, try getting a set with 3D compatibility, at least you'll be covered when ONE of the mis-marketed formats goes under.
As I recall, much of the initial fan/hype support for 4K when it was announced wasn't so much for the format, as for a somewhat misplaced-anger "Yay, is it going to replace that icky old 3D now, that greedy moneygrubbing companies are deliberately trying to shove down our throats?"...I think we all feel a little better now than we did in '13, don't we?

lol Hell no. Not only cannot I afford it, but, even if it was within my price range, I wouldn't want a television with that kind of price and size.

There's a BIG difference between DVD and Blu-ray.
(Those who say there isn't are either criminally apathetic about their movies, or have been cheapskate bastards since 2008.)

There's a difference between Blu-ray and UHD, but I wouldn't call it "huge". You're still better off with 3D.

Not really fussed about 4k TVs mainly because they are generally massive. The 30+ inch 4k pc monitors seem more interesting to me as they generally will be able to do the same as the TV's, have higher density and ill actually be able to fit them in my flat, of course i can use it as a monitor as well which is nice. The difference is very noticable, just takes a ton to drive it.

I have an LG 55 inch 4K smart T.V but everything is upscale at 1080p at the moment, and most 4K's run at 30hz/fps at the moment as well which is trash, especially when used to 60 - 144hz/fps.

2K/4K PC monitors look way better than a huge 4K TV IMO but, it needs a high-ish end GPU to drive it, and run it smooth at 60hz/fps or higher to get the most out of it.

I've never plugged my PC to my 4K TV yet, because I need HDMI 2.0 but I really want to try it.

It's not even a noticable difference if you don't have a giant TV.

Yes maybe you can see the microscopic grains a little more clearly but it's not a difference worth the price hike.
