I never said they do it all better.
I said it does everything. And they can do those things respectively too.
I also want to point out as content does begin to flow more you will be able to enjoy that content.
When 4k sets do become standard all current sets will be outdated.
All of them.
The benefits of resolution you have to determine for yourself.
But if it's not 4k I'd say get your hands on a f8500 right now. Oled quality picture. Not quite the pop but darn good.
We cane take two approaches to this 4k thing.
1. The current best ever 1080p set
And use them enjoying the best that generation of viewing has to offer for now and the foreseeable future.
Or 2. Get a 4k set and begin your transition now by using YouTube uhd material and netflix as well. There are the more 4k services coming this year including direct tv.
NFL sport etc will be upscaled and from what I can see look fantastic. More today. Can't wait.
I have the Tera bite samsung drive that came in the promotion and later this year I will be able to get addional content to what I own now.
I do not think older movies in upscaled 4k are worth buying again. I will just keep my older blurays they look great.
But from 2015 on I hope to have 4k films filmed in 4k playing on a 4k player.
My tv without standards of tomorrow will still be able to play those things.
And when 4k is standard and oled has finally been saturated and I can trust it. I'll buy my next set.
This is a transition period for us all. You will go through it one way or another.
