Well, considering we payed almost $2K on our 42" HDTV back in 2007, this is a PRETTY AWESOME DEAL!

... I just wish I wasn't poor. I would totally buy this along with a PS4 if I could.

HDTVs were about this price when they first came to market.

NewMonday1808d ago

surprising, thought the price drop on 4k would take a few more years to get to this point. still 50% above my pay grade, but it look like getting their quicker than I expected.

hkgamer1808d ago

not bad considering my first 42" SDTV plasma 10 years ago was around £5000.

DarkZane1808d ago

Just wait like 2 years, price will be half what it is now.

fr0sty1808d ago

There is nowhere near enough 4k content available for me to justify this purchase. Maybe if I were a PC gamer that could afford 2 $1000 video cards.

I'm sorry but budget friendly and 4k TV's don't belong in the same sentence.

Daver1808d ago

it will at some point, it will

wishingW3L1808d ago

but that point is not now.

It is when some cost upwards of $12k-$20k

If you keep it in perspective, this means that we will see mass market 4ktvs a lot sooner than people originally thought. My sister, who is middle class, spent $3500 on her 60inch 1080p TV. So I could see in a year 4ktvs being priced at around 2k to 4k dollars, if not less.

That price range does make 4k a reality for the middle class, which would be enough to start making 4k media and selling it to them at a profit.

Im sorry, she got jipped!!

Edit. I take that back. It depends on when she bought it.

cleft51808d ago

It was Bestbuy so she definitely got jipped. I went with her when she brought the tv, just to make sure she didn't get completely cheated. I knew the guy was up selling her, but it was a nice enough hdtv so I kept my mouth shut about the whole thing. That might seem callous, but I know my family and the less I say about their decisions the better.

I give it 5 years before we see these TVs being affordable. 10 years before I feel the need to buy one.

FlameBaitGod1808d ago

lool 10 years, are you serious. Not even HD took that long

By that time a newer standard would be out.
