LED, plasma, 4K, and curved are all features of TVs currently on the market. With so many different types of TVs and new technology coming out constantly, it can be a daunting task to pick out a new TV. I know when I bought my most recent Samsung, I was completely overwhelmed during the search. There were so many to choose from it was unreal. How do you know if it's the right size? What about brands? What's this 4K TV and why does it cost more than my car? Buying a new TV should be exciting and not overwhelming. If you're in the market for a new TV it's important to consider several options.
4k TV is the future of television. We're here to explain what it is and why it will replace your HD TV one day.
First, what does 4k mean? PC Mag says that 4k, "Refers to approximately 4,000 pixels of horizontal and 2,000 pixels of vertical resolution used in several digital formats for shooting high-quality video and scanning 35 mm frames. The 4K refers to horizontal resolution in contrast to standard digital TV resolutions, which are stated in vertical lines. "
So, how does that technology compare to the norm? Christina Bonnington of Wired.com writes, "Previously the stuff of high-end projector, [now makes] inroads into televisions of late." She also cites YouTube videos to give you a taste of the 4k experience.
If the resolution wow factor isn't enough to turn your head, then note that Sony's 4k boasts "virtual" 5.1 surround sound on a detachable 10-speaker system. Built-in wifi supports your every Pandora and Netflix whim. Oh, and 3-D is included on the 85" screen.
