Yes the technology is there and I can't wait till they use it but unless they are releasing 4k x 2k next year or in the next 3 or 5 years, I can't possibly see waiting for it. I just got a new TV, I think it's great. If I saw a great 4k x 2k, I'd probally can't wait to buy it. Thing is 1.3 works with 4k x 2k, but what can use it in the next coming years. Will be lucky to get 1080p out of Cable / Satelite in the next 5 years, than 2k-p broadcasts.
1.3 is going to be a great standard, but it won't be very viable for the next couple of years, maybe 6-10 years.
I like all the feed that came back regarding 1.3 since my first post. I was thinking along the same lines, as you mention above, but I think I jumped the gun and got really excited about maybe just waiting 12 months. But from what I read, you guys really proved a nice point, yeah even though they will come out with a TV that has 1.3, Will it be able to display what 1.3 is capable of, and yes it will be years before TV's technology can take full advantage of 1.3, and will there be any visual differences maybe! and maybe not!. I just don't know. But I can assume is that even though TV's can handle 1080P today, does that have anything to do with Deep colour and billions of colours. I thought 1080P means how many lines of resolution a TV can display, but does it really have anyting to do with colour? Any feedback would be appreciated! Who knows maybe TV's next year with 1.3, will look better, more colour, smoother picture. As we all know that RPTV improve over time and they just get better every year. So is worth it waiting, or buying today?
Really hard decision! only a year away! but based upon what I read, I'm jumping in and have made the decision to buy the JVC 61FH97. I saw this baby at Future shop and it's got just a beautiful picture. I saw no visual difference between 61FH97 and Sony's more $$$$$ expensive SXRD XBR2.
It's true if I wait until next year to buy, then you read reports that the year after another model better than this one if forthcoming, GUESS WHAT's happening, I will never buy a bloody HDTV.
Thanks for all the input, this really helped in my decision!
