Should You Wait Until 2017, Or Buy a 4K Television Set Now?
This is a great question. For starters, if your main issue is price…then we suggest you do your research here on 4KADVICE.COM and link over to Amazon to make a purchase. The reason is that it is Christmas time and this is when we see the best overall prices on 4K TVs.
This is because of the end of year savings and holiday prices including “Black Friday” deals. Many merchants are trying to clear out their 2016 4K TV models and therefore they offer much lower prices.
You cannot go wrong with a 2016 model 4K UHD Television. What use to be called simply 4K is now being called 4K UHD. The Alliance of UHD manufacturers have decided that they will all use this terminology when marketing 4K TV sets. Furthermore, there is actually some science or basis behind this term.
Certain technical specifications must be met before the manufacturers can label the TV as 4K UHD.
In addition to 4K UHD,…the Alliance has also developed another name for even better, higher quality televisions known as 4K UHD ‘PREMIUM”. These Premium TVs are able to be called this name if they meet the minimum requirements for specifications.
This means that the resolution, Colors, HDR, SMART capabilities must all be included in the production of such TVs before they can contain the ‘Premium’ badge.
As far as consumers are concerned, you cannot go wrong with a basic 4K UHD television bought from one of the four main manufacturers. We are partial to SONY because this happens to be the very first 4K TV that we owned & experienced.
After much research several years ago (of which was extremely difficult to find any info online…which is why we bring you this informational website), we decided that SONY sold the best 4K TV and Blu-ray player. SONY happens to be a pioneer when it comes to the 4K industry.
However, plenty of other large manufacturers like Panasonic, LG, Samsung and Toshiba have caught up in the 4K race and offer some of the greatest, most technologically advanced televisions in the world. Many of the 4K TVs that these companies offer will suit your needs. It usually comes down to price.
Amazon is the largest marketplace online that offers 4K UHD televisions. We highly recommend that you shop with Amazon. They provide the best selection at the lowest prices. Their membership called Amazon Prime cannot be beat.
Among other benefits, they offer free two day guaranteed shipping on all products labeled ‘prime’. This is the majority of products offered on their site. If we can locate other merchants who can compete with Amazon online, then we will certainly bring them to you.
