4K Ultra High Definition Beats 1080 HDTV When Compared
There is no other way to put this. If you own an HDTV, which 95% of us do, then your TV is obsolete. You are NOT watching the biggest and best television set any longer. Who would have ever thought that the picture quality would get much better than 1080 HD? I certainly did not expect this anytime soon. We can always hope for better technology. Ever since the computer was created technology has snow-balled faster than our little pea-brains can handle.
We welcome this new technology even though most of us might not be ready to switch over to a 4K UHD TV. I happened to make this change in 2014 closer to when they first hit the shelves. I did so after seeing a demo showing native 4K content on a 4K UHD TV. It was astounding. It was absolutely breath-taking and amazing picture quality. I could not believe how much better 4K was than what my older 1080 HDTV was showing.
Price was an issue in the past with 4K since the technology was so new. This is always the protocol with new technology and televisions. Prices start super high the newer the TV and technology is. Soon thereafter, prices drop significantly. By late 2016, prices will have dropped drastically and made buying a new 4K UHD TV affordable again just like 1080 HD TVs became affordable after that change over from Standard Definition (SD)
