1080? LMAO Wait till you see whats around the corner!
Ever wonder why 1080p TVs are so darn cheap all of a sudden? It's because the industry wants to dump em out! It's almost time for the new spiffy TVs that will make 1080 resolution look like Atari 2600 graphics. That's right. 1,920 x1,080? LMAO. We might be seeing 4,096 x 3,072 TVs. Still not realistic for you? By 2015-2020, we may have 7,680 × 4,320 TVs. Its funny to think a 1080 TV is the same as a 2 megapixel camera. 7,680 is like a 33 megapixel camera. Good show!
So we've had >1080 res monitors for a while, but we are starting to even record stuff higher than 1080.
I started getting pretty excited reading all this stuff. Then I started looking at my 52" 1080 and was like...umm..how the heck can this look any better? I don't sit close enough to it to see any pixels. But damn, with higher resolutions, I'm thinking just how beautiful a 100" TV would look.
Can't wait to setup the home theater with 22.1 surround sound.

Yeah I cant wait for the 4k TVs to come out, just to see what difference they make ... or just to get an "old" 1080p TV cheap LOL
In all reality about the only difference will be how crisp and sharp things look, but for live action stuff there's a limit really. Only with CGI stuff will there be any kind of huge difference between 1080p and 4k
Maybe the way we use a TV is what they are planning to change. Maybe it will be like sci-fi shows where we have some channel playing in a window n the screen whist we browse the web and do other stuff with the rest of the screen !? We're already seeing the change with "smart" TVs bringing basic internet access and access to streaming services.

Shit, I don't think it will make a difference for movies... but using a 50" screen on my desktop would be awesome.
My only concern in this is that TVs used live 10-15-20 years. I have a Philco in my bedroom with wood grain paneling from like 89 that still works, and sometimes it's on 10 hours a day. It's survived like 12 moves. I can't bring myself to replace it out of curiosity for how long it can survive.
Sounds like manufacturers realized that they could keep upping resolutions and bring people back to spending thousands on TVs. And maybe that means they'll make TVs that last 5 years. Cheaper parts, more disposable, etc, etc.
I'm not Mr. Green but I'm always sad to see technology go towards the mass-disposable spectrum. It's bad enough with computers and cell phones. But I guess it's not so bad as long as recycling keeps up.

4K will be great on massive TVs.. But is 1080 even needed on the 32" sized TVs? So would going from 1080 > 4k actually make any difference?
I'd imagine most home users would still go for a 32-46" TV, where 1080 is perfectly adequate and 4k would provide little improvement due to the size of the screen. So it could just be a great marketing gimmick to get people to replace perfectly good 1080 TVs with 4K TVs in situations where they aren't actually needed.
That's not even going down the route that most people wont want to bin their 3 year old TVs that still work, and also that we don't really have any mainstream media that can deliver that resolution either.
It could be awesome for cinemas etc, but at the moment, I genuinely think its too much for home usage, other than being a fantastic bit of marketing.
