Just the mentality that CE manufactures want you to have.
Your 720p and 1080p panels don't suddenly stop working if someone accidentally mutters "4K" "HDR" "UHD" or "Dolby Vision" in the same room.
My old 32" 720p Panasonic goes with me to do small group presentations when its not in use in the bedroom.
When my Panasonic 50" gets replaced later this year it will do something, maybe even double duty, faithfully displaying streaming, DVD, and BluRay content, just like it did fresh outta the box.
When it gets replaced, my 2009 Epson HC8350 (now 8 years old) will start doing outdoor movies in the backyard and camping.
Whatever replaces the projector and the 50" panel will be in service for a very long time unless its made to fail in 5 years.
Master crafted 4K UHD HDR Ultra Turbo Platinum Deluxe DV in 4D demo material makes great big box pusher showroom material, but seriously, how many 1 season wonder TV shows, hallmark holiday specials or not blockbuster season by the number rom com movies need all of the master crafted bells and whistles?
