So, you're saying resolution is going to stagnate over the next decade. 1080p will be it, for forever.
Seriously? No.


1080p will last longer than you think, 5-6 years minimum.

I don't think 4k will be very successful in the TV market, but like 3D, I don't think it will go away. The technology will keep getting cheaper, and it will steadily work its way down company product lines. Even if nobody is using it, every TV from the high end to the $200 TVs at Walmart will have a 4k resolution in a few years.

1080p has already lasted more than 6 years.

and give it another 5-6 years at least. People still think 1080p looks amazing, and yet there is still people berly upgrading to 1080p. I will be getting 4k monitor next year with an upgraded rig because I have the money to pay for it, but the majority of the people really don't care enough.

4k is going to fail. While it is amazing, people don't have the money to be moving at the pace of new technology.

Looks good, but 1080p tvs are much cheaper from more known brands.

So are these new 4K screens using OLED technology or are they just high resolution LCD's? Personally, I'd much rather see a significant increase in the actual picture quality rather then just the extra detail from more pixels.

I have a flagship plasma and I still feel like the shadow detail and color have a long ways to go before it starts looking like you are viewing ,material through a glass window.

I'm okay with 1080P right now. I'm using a DVI cable, so this doesn't affect me. 4K will be great, but they're only on larger monitors. I think that my 23" one is already too big. For me 4K will be better for a TV since large ones need more pixel density. Even considering that, I'm still okay with 1080P for a while. High resolution is great, but I'm not going to rebuy all my Blu-rays in 1440P.


The benefit of 4K is not better movie quality but better text quality. Right now computer screens are way behind smartphones and tablets in terms of DPI.
