Why you shouldn't buy a 4K TV this year

Why you shouldn t buy a 4K TV this year Computerworld


"While it's tempting to upgrade your flatscreen to the latest technology, industry analysts say UHD TVs are still no bargain, with top brand names selling 65-in models for $5,000 or more. And, even though 4K TVs offer four times the resolution of today's 1080p HDTVs, there are no standards today for how many frames per second should be used in broadcasting media. Additionally, while there's plenty of content being produced for UHDs, little has been made available."

Good idea: WAIT.

Unless, you are a gamer. Skip the TV, get the monitor.  

Battlefield 4 in 4k is awesome.

Dell Ultrasharp UP3214Q does 3840x2160 at $3300.

Asus PQ321Q comes in at 3840x2160, 140ppi at $3322. 

No idea where the extra 256 vertical pixels disappeared off to:  (4096 - 3840), but maybe they'll include them next year. 

These prices have GOT to come down in 2014, don't they?
