They supposedly want to get this into homes by 2016-2020, according to Wikipedia (which I'll take with a grain of salt if anybody can tell me differently). But to me, this also indicates a new non-Blu technology (unless they manage to make a several-TB Blu-ray disc somehow). It'd be a whole new thing to buy into again, and from what other people have displayed online, it's probably not going to make a difference for 99% of people who aren't sitting 1.5 feet away from a computer monitor.

So why do this? That's what confuses me. I mean, I'm all for better technology, but we have a long way to go before LED technology sorts out some of its major kinks and a very long way to go before 3D becomes even a feasible option for the majority of consumers imo. What's with the electronic companies' rushes to get new tech out to us so quickly?

It looks really cool, but not practical for most everyone. I too think it would be great for the cinema though! I candy at it's finest.

I would rather not buy a new high-end TV every 5-10 years though - I just got into Blu-ray last year after waiting for prices to go down.

Maybe it will make a difference for people with projection setups, which I plan on installing in my first house (I'm only 20 years old, btw). But I still doubt the human eye will see a ton of perceivable difference.

Then again, people said that sort of thing about 1080P too way back in the day, so who knows?

Of course I want Ultra High Definition. There is only on problem I would have to be a billionaire in order to put in a home theater room large enough, so I could get the proper screen to distance ratio.

Half of me wants to correct that, half of me says 'no, that actually works'.

I wouldn't mind seeing UHD installed into cinemas as i think it'll look breathtaking and could be the future in cinema. It's better than seeing a light projected onto a wall. I know it's traditional and all, but the quality looks better on my tv than it does in the cinema, so to see a big UHD tv in the cinema would be EPIC!

Are you saying that you'd need more room depth to get the right distance for UHD? Because the opposite is true. In fact, this makes it possible to put larger screens into smaller spaces.

(BTW an 8k "retina display" would be about 27"; I could certainly see myself watching movies at my desk on a screen that size. )

Thanks for posting this very nice price drop on UHD TVs. One correction is the articles have incorrect prices for Samsung's 55" UN55F900, which is now actually $4,499 and the 65" UN65F9000 is now $5,999.

Very deep price cuts, but not quite as low as the articles say.

-Robert

Nah, I wouldn't say 4 times the res is really worth it unless you bought the "Porsche" HDTV. This is real 4K.
