should i wait untill the fall or winter for 4k pricing to come down some more then they already have, or should i just buy a tv now.

i am looking at led tv's like the Samsung un60f7050 and tv's in that range....

i was also looking at the Sharpe elite but that was 4200 and that would be streachting it for me budget wise. in you guys need more info let me know. thx for any advise

Really better off waiting on 4K until every thing like HDMI 2.0 and H.265 codec is ironed out. Large 4K sets are around $7,000-$15,000, way above your budget. There probably won't be much 4K content until 2015 anyway. If you need a display right now, I would grab one on the cheap Panasonic plasmas like the 65" Panasonic S64 for $1500 and waiting it out.

If you're thinking about buying a Samsung, at least wait a year until HDMI 2.0 arrives, then you can get compatibility fixes via Evolution kits. This is what I am planning as well since I've decided to go with the Samsung plasma.
