This is the beginning of the next generation of television. Ultra HD, also known as 4k, offers four times the resolution of today’s HD 1080p TVs. James K. Willcox:
Samsung dropped the price of its 55-inch UN55F9000 set to just under $4,000, while its 65-inch UN659000 model has a new price of $5,500. They were intially priced at $5,500 and $7,500 respectively… Sony’s price cuts are similar, with its 55-inch Bravia XBR-55X900A model selling for just under $4,000, down from an initial price of $5,000, and the 65-inch XBR-65X900A priced at $5,500, down from $7,000.
We recently bought a 47-inch HD TV with LED LCD backlighting, four HDMI ports, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, USB, for $599.
What’s next after Ultra HD? Super Hi-Vision, with four times the resolution of 4k (32 megapixels vs. 8 megapixels).
