Also, upscaling has proved to be more effective than many anticipated, and that includes upscaling the 1080p output from the new consoles.
By the time a 55" OLED UHDTV hits the market, how much do you think a 70" UHD LCD will cost? My guess is... about the same as the sales tax on the UHD OLED.
I hope I am wrong.
Hard headed and unwilling to acknowledge the facts.
Poster you replied to understands the limitations of 4k content.
Youtube and streaming 4k and Redray WHERE YOU WILL WAIT HOURS TO DOWNLOAD.
Until the internet infrastructure is updated 4k content will never be mainstream in this way.................too slow and data limits.
Your asking a UHDTV to more than double the info it receives depending on what the native content resolution is and you think
thats a good thing....................my ass
The OP calls OLED an immature tech but its UHD that has insurmountable content limitations making it both immature
and possibly short lived................its an upconverting set...............period and I don't want it extrapulating half or more of the picture.
Until native content is magically transporting/beamed into our homes some way other than internet,sat or cable.................or billions
of dollars are spent upgrading those three,,,,,internet, sat and cable this isn't gonna happen. They already spent their dough to get
you HDTV and their not waiting in the wings to do it again.
