More about samsung inch hitting priced 000
  1. And to think that the Seiki 50 inch 4k screen is only $1200... Considering a 1080P 80" Aquos goes for around $4000 or a 90" Aquos for $9000, a 85" 1080P should sit around $6000. Is this screen really worth 6-7 times as much as a 1080P display? I guess people have money to burn...
  2. £35,000 There will be someone out there that will buy one.
    It would be nice to have one. Sadly I suspect not many units will be sold.
  3. As slomo4sho has aptly indicarted: 4k Seiki 50" for $1500 CAD:

    Sounds good to me.
  4. I think the few people who buys it at $35k are helping samsung showcase their technology. 4k is still a developing technology. Samsung made a tv that makes people drool and now the wait begins till we can all buy one.
  5. My wallet just had heart attack, stroke and brain aneurysm all at the same time when saw the price.
  6. Eh...first world problems
  7. That cheap? I'll take 2.

    hmmm.... 50" UHD is a bit too small to sit across a living room, but that may be a good size for a computer monitor. Maybe 5-10" smaller... and cut $500 off the price?

    Time to save my pennies...
  9. My word that money could buy my years of fish and chips it would!
  10. Need more details ... is this OLED TV? or just LED lit? I can totally see that price if it is OLED in that size since panels of that size are a challenge to make for now.
  11. And after spending £35,000 and using the TV like a normal person for 1 - 2 years, the TV suddenly turns off and just clicks. Congratulations, you now get to buy a new TV already.
  12. It would be nice to have a high resolution tv of course, but at this time even the Jones's would be kidding them selves.
    Are there any movies/tv stations broadcasting at 4k resolutions? no. Broadcasting is having bandwidth issues relaying 1080p playback as it is.
    Its a step in the right direction, but until infrastructure is upgraded for demand, it will be a very long time until these kind of tv's will be given their respects.
  13. Am I the only one getting annoyed by how companies are marketing this? 3840 × 2160 being called 4k? "K" meaning thousand... But its 3840 pixels not 4096
  14. Umm I pretty sure if you look at the Seki TV it only runs in 4K mode at 30hz so yea...
