I love the 4k debate, is it better, that depends on each individual's preference. Recently, it has become time to replace some older TVs in our house. More than a year ago, we replaced a 42" 8 year old 1080P LCD with a 60" Vizio M Series. We decided it was a little too early for 4k, and the TV was going in our game room where we watch movies and play video games. This last December, we replaced an 7 year old 1080P 40" Samsung with a 50" Vizio P series. This TV was in our bedroom. Now the TVs they replaced were much older, but the improvements were drastic. We were so happy with the 4k in the bedroom, that we replaced the 4 year old LED LG in the living room with a same size 4k LG. Sure, the only content we really see in native, if you can call it that is what we can stream from Amazon and Netflix, but compared to the TVs that were there before, even our Bluray movies look better. Now the technology they replaced was certainly much older, with the exception to the living room, but we are very happy with our purchases. It is not practical for me to go out and replace the gameroom TV with a 4K right now, but that does not mean that we cannot enjoy the other televisions we have. Sure we could have replaced the TVs with 1080P TVs and maybe saved some money. Would we enjoy them as much, maybe. This has and always becomes a waiting game, could we have waited longer for 4k to roll out? How long? We felt the itch to upgrade, and right now, I feel like it was the time to make the jump to 4k with the budget that we set and how long we hold on to our TVs. When these TVs get replaced, it will probably be a newer and different technology, and at that time, I will buy what I feel is the sweet spot in terms of quality, technology and price. I would never let my mother in law buy a 4k TV, since she refuses to even get any kind of HD content. I have friends who refuse to spend more than $500-$600 on a TV, so 4k is not an option for them either. I also would not replace a 1-2 year old TV with a 4k TV. I know 4k blurays will probably be out of my reach when they first are released, and maybe not compatible with my current TVs, but I tried to put myself in a position to make that jump when they are at the price where I see value in making the jump. This is all I can really ask, it all takes time. My wife just recently let me retire our HD DVD player and collection. Well, her player from before we met, and our combined collection. Should we have waited for that technology to be decided before jumping up from DVD? If so, we could have missed a few years of HD movie goodness. We invested in both and made the jump pretty early. I feel like that is what we are doing now. Buy what you think fits you best and enjoy. Stick with it until you find something better and go with that.
