Just when I sort of accepted Halloween candy in stores in July... Boxing Day/Week sales are starting even now. WTF?!
4k makes the most sense for projectors, even at screen sizes of 60" it has marginal benefit.
The TV "guts" behind motion resolution, colour accuracy, panel uniformity and contrast ratio can all combine to make a 1080p TV far superior to a 4k tv.
HDR I think has more promise than 4k, in terms of making a tangible image quality improvement perceptible by the consumer on the type of screens we have in our living rooms.
Advice for TV's today follows this hierarchy:
- Vizio if you want the best image quality you can get on a budget
- Samsung midrange/low high end is good if you have more to spend
- panasonic still has the pedigree behind its TV "guts" to make them the most attractive at the top of the line where money is less important than image quality
How can you say a 1080p is "far superior" to a 4k when the sole defining feature of the 4k is the number of pixels, which by definition is a multiple of the lesser. Seriously it's not like those techno features aren't available for 4k sets as well. It's like comparing a Retina screen to a non-retina. Sources however...
All recent people I know who went with Vizio *do not regret it! *
