At this point how many of you are going 4k if the price is right? I wanted one but i don't want to have to buy a new tv again in the next year or 2 because it not compatible or doesn't meet the specs of the finalized 4k disk format. Thoughts? I don't want a 4k set that becomes obsolete in a year or 2.

In my opinion, it's needless to add "4K" at today's day and age if the only advantage your display will have is resolution. If you're in a scenario where other TVs are better overall performers (i.e. non "4K" displays) and they best fit your needs, then chose one of those FPs. If you're in a situation that has similar "2K" displays vs "4K" displays with no significant (according to your perception) price increase towards the latter, then maybe the UHD option is more compelling.


I personally would not give the nod to a "4K" display on the resolution factor alone if you're comparing admirable "2K" displays that outperform the former in contrast ratio, black levels, color accuracy etc. What mostly makes "4K" compelling (in my opinion) is the added resolution plus an extended color gamut, wider dynamic range, higher bit depth, etc. etc.

The only reason I considered a 4k display was the the price/specs. I have a grand set aside for a tv. The Vizio P series 50inch 4k is going to be around a grand when released.

I completely understand. Vizio has certainly made the UHD option a compelling decision with their pricing. My only perspective is that regardless of price, if VIzio's 50" UHD FP ends up being an average performing display in the whole scheme of things (contrast ratio, black levels, etc.) and there are other better all around displays for the same price with a native resolution of 1920x1080, then I'd absolutely lean toward the "2K."

Im waiting for reviews both pro and user reviews. I want something equal to or greater than my Samsung 46d800. Its just a waiting game know. Might have to look at the M series and other manufacturers as well. But it sucks to think if you get one in 2014 it might be obsolete in 2015 or 2016.(granted i know there will be improvements each year)
