In August last year LG began selling the first 84-inch 4K UHDTV in Korea, which costs about $22,000. Now after five months it seems that the television, that costs as much as a mid-sized car, has found about 300 early adopters.
The television boasts a picture quality with 8 million pixels per frame (4K resolution), four times the pixels (3840×2160) of existing Full HD TV panels.
Earlier this month the major consumer electronics manufacturers presented their 4K TVs at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where Sony, Samsung, Toshiba, Panasonic and Sharp all showed off their new ultra HD offerings.
You may ask: “Why buy a 4K TV now”? Maybe just because they can. But seriously, the presentations at the CES showed, that upscaled 1080p material on a 4K TV screen looks way better than 1080p. So if you have some money left and a massive 84-inch fits in your living room, you should give it a try.
