I guess it's safe to say 2013 was the year that UHD made it's real first major appearance. With brands like Westinghouse, Toshiba, LG and many more to announce, Vizio announced later yesterday that they will be producing a 55, 65 and a 70inch XVT- Series Ultra HD Razor LED models.

Vizio is also releasing the XT900 Series which will come in 65, 84 and 110 inches.

XT900 key specifications:
- UHD (3840 x 2160) native resolution
- U-LED Technologies
- 120 Hz
- WiFi enabled
- Smart TV with Google TV
- 65”, 84”, 110” screen sizes
- 3D
- Smart TV functionality
- Precise Local Dimming
- Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio (10,000,000:1)
- Multi-Screen Play
- Detachable camera (Skype calling, gesture and facial recognition)
- Voice control

No pricing or availability for the UHD's have been announced as of yet.


110inches for a TV, am I the only one who thinks this is too big as a display?

UHD needs a larger picture for consumers to really see the difference in resolution. The biggest advantage of UHD is in the projector arena, which manufacturers may start promoting more heavily to the regular folk.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

I agree, but as a TV vs a Projector, I don't know about the rest of you, but I can't even imagine it fitting down the stairs. Where does the crossover begin from TV to Projector?

When you can't get the TV into your house!

Of course, there are many tradeoffs to consider when comparing TVs to projectors with the same screen size.

Getting a 110" picture without having to be so restrictive of room lighting would solve one of the only bones of contention in my house...

I have a 110" screen for my projector but it is a roll up so when not watching it is up and out of the way. A bigger issue I see with a panel that size is you need a wall area to put it even if you do live with bilbo, the hobbit. The height of a 110" screen is only 54" Getting it into your room should not be a problem.

The length is what's the problem. A lot of houses have tight foyers and turns, where 8' is just too long. I know it would never make the turn at the bottom of my stairs, to get in my theater room in the basement.

+1 ^^^

Alot of projectors nowadays have a nice high light output. I've heard that on the 70inchers, the screen res is just OK. Nothing really spectacular. I would stick with a PJ personally.
