4K TV Reviews
4K is the type of TV that is getting a lot of hype, but at the same time it is still somewhat shrouded in the veil of mystery. A lot of people own it, and a good portion of them are not aware of what they actually got when they bought it. In short, 4K is a monstrosity in terms of resolution. It features four times higher resolution than its older brother Full HD TV.
Is 4K Worth It?
The short answer is yes. It is definitely worth it. Imagine having eight million pixels on your screen, opposed to two million pixels you might have had on your Full HD TV. However, the content needs to be in 4K as well for you to enjoy your TV. Ultra HD hasn’t even become a standard yet, and it will probably take years for 4K to find its righteous place. But that is no reason to miss out on all the fun. Content in 4K is already available, so you will get the chance to enjoy it in case you decide to buy it.
It is very likely that screen sizes for these TV’s will stop varying so much and stabilize at around 55″ and up. Smaller screens simply do not handle this kind of pixel density too well since the advantage of having such pixel density fades on small display sizes.
4K isn’t around that long, but it’s here to stay. Big names like Netflix have started delivering 4K content last year, and more are jumping on the wagon. As time passes, there are more movies and shows you can watch in 4K than you would at first imagine. There was the lack of 4K native content at the beginning, but 4K does an amazing job with Full HD (1080p) content as well, turning it into an amazing experience. High end 4K TV’s are able to upscale images with remarkable results. 4K TV’s are the absolute best you can currently get, and if you don’t mind paying the price, you should definitely go for it. Especially if you are buying from a renowned TV manufacturer. Remember, you are making an investment for the future here, so you shouldn’t expect to see everything in 4K just yet. Keep in mind that for the sake of future viewing experience, go for the 4K TV that has HDMI 2.0 ports, rather than HDMI 1.4 ports that is featured on some older models.
