I'm in the market for a 4K tv and was looking at the sharp 70" models. Is 1080p+/4K not a true native 4K set even though it accepts a 4K signal?

The Sharp Q+ TVs are 1080P screens. They are using pixel splitting to enhance the picture quality. They will accept a 4K 30Hz input and rescale it to the screen parameters. If you go to paulstv and look at the Q+ TVs there is an explanation that might help in the understanding of what they are doing..

The Sharp Q+ uses subpixel addressing to deliver a true 2160 lines of vertical resolution and alternating color mosaics to fake a pseudo-3840 pixels of horizontal resolution.


It's going to look pretty darned close to 4K, but the best way to think of it might be 'true' 4K in the vertical resolution and 'true' 1080p in the horizontal resolution. It would be fantastic for passive 3D (true 1080p into each eye) but I think Sharp is unfortunately using active 3D with these sets...
