I'm sure that some elitists pricks will buy them and pretend that they're better than the rest of the world for having them, but I really think that picture quality has got about as good as it can get so I won't be wanting one. At the moment sometimes bluray is even too much picture quality for it's own good. I've noticed that CGI and film grain are now much more visable than on dvd, and I personally think that's a problem.

Beta for sure. VHS is tainted with porn. It'll never take off.

I own an HDDVD, bought it after BluRay won. It had the best upscaling available at the time...

There are already TVs available with 4k resolution, with HD being half of that at 1920x1080. Been available commercially for a while, theyre now hitting for the consumers....

2K and 1080p aren't the same thing. Pixel count isn't everything, there's codec compression. I can run standard definition that has so much color depth that it would have difficulty playing off a blu-ray.

BR bitrates are around 4.5MB p/s uncompressed 4K bitrates are around 500MB p/s.

We're at the point where our bottle-neck isn't display resolution, it's the pipeline delivering the information. Our compression codecs are very good and getting better but when the telecoms are dust and we can get modern internet in this country... you'll start to see some crazy shiat. Disc media is so f*cking slow.

Youre right on the 1080p isnt 2k, but every "double resolution" display I have read about calls it 4k res, not 3840x2160. I am just using the trade terms I have been seeing....

After that you lost me... I cant question it simply because you are speaking beyond my knowledge...

I'm confused as to what the point of the 4k TV's is right now. Is there any media that can even support that resolution?

As is the case with electronics these days this technology will make sense once it becomes cheaper to manufacture and sell.
Meanwhile, I'll be enjoying my 60" Panasonic Plasma for $800.

the data flow of information is what's holding us back... not the resolution of our screens. Think about how slow a blu-ray is in transferring data compared to a hard drive... now think about how slow a single hard drive is compared to a RAID array. That's the problem. We can't even display full resolution video on the screens we HAVE due to their storage media...
