I likely will replace my TV with a 4k one, when this TV goes..
MAYBE sooner, if the content in 4k drastically changes before then.
But right now, there is not enough content that i want, to warrent a change.
But in the next few years.. you will see more stuff on TV, and blurays, etc start comming out with 4k.. that all may change.
And 4k tvs are just more likely to drop more and more by then anyways
Not the high end models. They will stay at $3,000+. The lower end models will stay around the $1,600 mark plus. When 8K does come out the 4K will br dropped agreed but to the level that 1080p is.
I am far from a TV expert / perfectionist..
So yes there is can be a difference between (on the same level, lets just say 4k) in a $1300 vs a 3000 one.. in terms of refresh rates, contrast, black levels, etc.
But for most people.. not all that makes TOO much of a difference... heck.. the amount of people who are using an HD tv with still an SD tv box... or a regular DVD player.. dont know what true 1080p quality is
There are a fair number of 4k TVs in the $1000-1100 range.
Not that far off the equivelent 1080p at $700-800 range.
No i am not expecting a 4k to drop down to like $500 bargin prices. But your entry level 4k ones at just sub 1k regularily in the next few years.
