With 40 pages in this thread, it's hard to see if what I'm about to ask has been covered, so if it was I apologize.
I'm thinking about upgrading to a new TV as my current one is starting to have display issues. As a consumer who usually gets sucked into the newest and brightest technology because "it looks cool", I tend to act before doing full research.
Anyway, this whole Smart TV thing and Evolution Kit has me very interested and intrigued. I am currently looking at this model
, but I noticed in the fine print that it's not compatible with the current Evo kit and that a new one is coming out sometime in 2014.
I have a few questions that I'm hoping someone can help answer.
First, any idea when in 2014 this Evo kit is going to be available?
Second, if the whole idea behind the Evolution kit is so the TV can upgrade itself, why does it need a newer model kit? Will this then be obsolete in 2014 heading into 2015?
Third, while doing a little research, I came across a site that pretty much said with 1080p becoming obsolete, having this type of TV with this kit is pretty much worthless. Would you agree with that? I'm not willing to shell out the money for one of these 4k sets, but would hate to be throwing away $3000 on the set I mentioned if it's "yesterday's technology."
Sorry again if this was previously discussed and thanks in advance for any and all help you can provide.
