I Just got back From the Gadget Show in the UK and was disappointed that there was not a big show and dance about the new 4k TV's that were there (did not even see any at the show but the Internet says there were 3-4 there)
It was all 3D and sub $2k projectors.
In my eyes Blueray and even 5.1-7.1 has not even taken off yet in the uk.
I would say 90% of people have a HD TV in the uk now, but I only know of only 1 other person that uses even that to the max,
Or even understands that heaving a HD tv does not mean anything in less you are playing Bluerays or have a HTPC type setup with blueray rips or even sky HD with a hdmi cable.
One of my m8's was like yer we got sky HD its brill, I go have a look and its not even connected with a hdmi cable just an old scart.
On the way back from the gadget show one of the other 3 people in the car were asking me about why there 42" plasma that's 6ft away from them in there room is all blocky when they have the tv on.
"why is my TV blocky"
"its a HD plasma TV why does it look so bad"
"the ones at the show Look 10X better do I need to get a new TV?"
I role my eyes
He does not even own a DVD player, nor does he have any understanding of anything.
Then we get on to me chatting about 2k and 4k and stuff and there all like "I cannot see it making any difference" "I cannot see any difference on a HD TV now" I shake my head.
We then go to my m8's house because he is like omg you need to see my theatre room its very good.
We get there and I say nothing. Its a HD ready 47" tv in a conservatory that's too bright with a DVD player and some pimp theatre chars
No Blueray, No audio equipment at all not even a crap all in one 5.1 system or anything. No blinds. No clue
I can see why monsta can sell £100-$200 hdmi cables and all the rest of the junk because 99% of people have no clue about anything.
Some might think they know but in reality there as clueless as the sales staff in box stores.
One lad in the car on the way back did not even know that terrestrial analogue TV got switched off in the UK and its all digital now. Or what that even means. "but its still coming from the same aerial how can it of changed?"
OMG people make me so mad.
Semi rant over what was this topic about again?
