Buy a new 1080p HD TV now or wait for 4k UHD?

  • Wait for 4k to become mainstream.

  • Buy a 1080p now as it will be ages for 4k media, broadcasting, etc.

  • It all depends on your budget, if you have a TV now or not, what you'll be using it for, etc. If I didn't have a TV now, I would grab a 1080p, as it's significantly cheaper, and I can put the extra money into a sound system or gaming consoles or any extra add-ons. But I currently have an amazing 70" 1080p Samsung TV, along with current and Next-Gen gaming consoles, as well as a great 7.1 sound system, so for me, personally, I would upgrade to a 4K when the price of the 80" ones drop to around $5,000. But speaking on behalf of society, and not my personal idea, I would say buy a 1080p, as there isn't much of anything to be displayed in 4k yet other than very few PC games, and the price just isn't worth it right now.

Well it depends. Do you have a tv now and just want to upgrade?

I have a 1080p low end Panasonic, but the motion tracking is pretty bad on blurays.

I'm still on my old tube. I don't really see any need to upgrade.

I also take HD pics in A3 so thinking it would be good to have 4k to see them in natural resolution for editing.

Was thinking I would upgrade to a Sony X85 (X8500B SERIES) with 4K Resolution.
