What are they and why so expensive?
Are they really that good?
5k for a 70"

They are essentially 4X the resolution of your current 1080p TV. 4K TV's are just starting to appear on the market, which is why they are so expensive. Also, with the exception of 1 video on Netflix and maybe a handful of YouTube content there isn't any 4K content currently available to watch. And even those pieces are usually too large to stream over the internet anyway.

I personally feel that 4K TV's are going to be great for the same reasons our higher resolution computer monitors were great. But currently there's just nothing to enjoy on them except digital photographs.

Random Fact. Most of your digital/IMAX Movie theaters are using 4K projection. So imagine that but scaled down to the size of a 70" TV WITHOUT quality lost.

Yeah, basically everything is filmed in 4K and downsampled to 1080p, producers claim this still results in a sharper picture.

I wouldn't suggest buying a 4K TV as this time though, the HDMI spec alone isn't up to speed nor are there content providers for it.

I never thought I would see the day where I would see 1080P referenced as something you would "downscale" to.

dude.. i remember the day when trying to play crysis in 1080p was nearly impossible without a beeffy Sli. now it's like the bare minimum for all the benchmarks.

there're some real funny 4K tv reviews on amazon, you should read them.

First, great job on the FB group. Now, have you seen the LG OLED TV in action? The Boss and I saw it in Anchorage about a month ago. It was the MOST breathtaking TV there. The blacks were magnificent and the colors were so spectacular that I couldn't believe they were real. Now, just have to come up with $5000 ... :o
