The voters have decided that mihneacuzino2 is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

I remember when monitors displayed 2 colors: black and not black. 256 color displays were mind-blowing.

Doesn't matter to me. I can't count that high anyway.

Some people can see more. There's a gene apparently

A healthy human eye has three types of cone cells, each of which can register about 100 different colour shades, therefore most researchers ballpark the number of colours we can distinguish at around a million.

So even if a TV does have over 16 million colours nearly all of them are irrelevant to the human visibility spectrum!
