4K TV - Is It Worth Upgrading?

Recommended Posts

Most of the TVs in my home are 1080p HD SmartTVs, which I am perfectly happy with, especially when compared to the old standard definition.

However, I am wondering of upgrading my main HDTV to 4K. I have read lots of comments/reviews about 4K, and they all bang on about better picture definition, even though there's not that many mainstream channels broadcasting in 4K.

4K is also relatively cheap, probably because 8K is just round the corner any time soon. Which leads me onto my other question: should I bide my time, ignore 4K and wait for 8K to come along?

As I said earlier, I am quite happy with 1080p. If the only benefit of having 4K is better picture quality, then quite frankly I may as well stay with 1080p, unless it really makes a BIG difference!

 

Thanks

My viewing distance is around 10 feet. The room is pretty bright in the daytime. However, I’ve always wanted deep blacks and have never been able to get them. I’d be mostly watching movies and streaming, but there’d be some light gaming too. I’ve done a bit of research, and it sounds like OLED  is the best, but it is probably outside of this price range, right? Even if I went down to 55? If not OLED, then is QLED the following best? As far as actual models, people talk about the Sony X900h and TCL 635R. Would these be my best options, or are there others I should look into? Could a slight increase in budget make considerably better options available?
