Do you plan on buying a 4K HDTV in the near future?

I bought one of those one's from tigerdirect for around 500. Looks amazing but it's only 30hz so 30fps in games at 4k. my 680gtx i notice can handle it but does struggle sometimes.it was so cheep that i can just get another one once they have hdmi 2.0 versions for 60hz 4k. I herd they might do a firmware update for it witch is a bonus if it works. Looks very nice at 4k and 1080p. only problem the colours are not perfect.

The prices keep dropping and dropping. Saw a Sony 55" 4K tv on sale for $1600 a week ago. I may get a 55" in a few years.

Hope Xbox One games don't look too bad on it.

sigh... go ahead waste your money on 4k tvs today. Maybe you forgot that in the meantime, both PS4 and xbone games aren't even consistently keeping 1080p. Watch dogs is 720p to start.

Not for years, there's simply no point.

By the time there's enough 4K content available to even start to think about purchasing a TV, all current 4K TVs will be well obsolete

at first i was just gonna echo everyone that it would be a long time, no content, no interest. my tv's great for now. i'd go with an oled first like some said. but i just read through this whole thing. : ) go back and look everybody. on this board...
i can say with certainty 4k will never be the norm for a long time. longer than 10 years, thats for sure.

I kinda want a 4k monitor, but not for the current prices. Not really interested in 4k TV, we've known they are working on eventual 8k TV after that, why bother with a stop gap? It's like owning a 720p set was... we knew about 1080p, it was kinda pointless (even if I'm not that bothered by 720p vs 1080p gaming, why would I not get/wait for the better set to keep my content options open?).

Once a reasonable amount of content (TV, streaming, games) is available in 4k I will.

Wasting money is great for the economy. You don't know what you're talking about.


Don't tell me I don't know what I'm talking about when you apparently lack basic reading comprehension skills


That is true, I apologise. I completely misread what you wrote.

nope, given adoption of hd took decades and 3d failed almost immediately, i don't see the point

No. I just upgraded last fall to a 1080p set and it is 50/50 if what I am displaying on it now even reaches that. When I can actually watch and play the majority of my media in 4K I will consider getting one but that won't be in the near future.

Why would you ever need a 4K television to play Xbox One games?
