    Video Encoding (x264 vs. x265)

    I'm just wondering, is it worth the time to start using x265 yet or should I stick with x264, space isn't a problem.
    Just wondering if there's actually that much of a difference, after doing my own VISUAL comparisons, I FEEL like there's a drop in quality at the sake of reduction in size, sure, it's A LOT smaller, but I'm wondering if the trade-off is worth it.

    Opinions?

    x265 is more space efficient, and it's suppose to be better quality. but I can't see it.
    x264 is the older version of HEVC.

    Videowise, when viewed on a poor quality TV, about the same as it was previous to encoding.
    But my eyes tell me it's slightly worse, but I think that might be me stuck in my old ways and unconsciously making myself believe it's worse.
    As for compression, amazing upgrade.

    But if you want more details I'd refer you to the charts available online.
