At ABC Warehouse the other day.  And I don't know how else to say it other than, I'm very impressed.  The thing was huge; I'm not sure I remember how many inches the salesman said it was, but it was big.  And to ME, in MY eyes, it was very, very detailed.  It was showing a panoramic view of part of a city, and you could make out even small details on the individual people walking around.

 

I know we're still debating and trying to come to some conclusion as to whether we can see the difference over 1080p, but now that I have actually seen one, I think I personally can say that I can.  Your thoughts may differ, however.

I went ahead and bought one without having even seen it yet. Its one of the cheap SEIKIs at 39". knowingly the refresh is horrid as well as the transfer from darks to whites. Other than that, its very detailed. 1080p(on this set) is nicer to me because when sitting close by, you arent seeing the black between the pixels. Youre seeing them blend together which makes for a better picture when up close. Best computer monitor ever...with proper gpus

I would say that 4K will be the standard for large televisions (>60"), while 1080p will stay around for the smaller displays, at least for the next several years to come due to the very expensive panels and the lack of transmissions, as hardly any broadcast is 1080p due to bandwidth limitations.

I guess by the time we start playing GRID 4 and Forza 7 it will be less uncommon for people to be playing games at those kinds of resolutions.

 

I'm going to start saving up now...
