myfullflavour: Unless you're a gamer - why would you buy 4k when there is still no content?
If I remember correctly, not even the new "next generation" consoles can do 4K, so even gamers are wasting their time with 4K TVs.
joker97: don't know how they are going to get 4K featured content to the public. it probably wón't fit in a bluray disc ... would it? either they compress it, or a new dvd spec needs to be invented?
The draft standard is currently intending to use four-layer Blu-ray discs for 4K content. Whatever standard they finally agree on will mean the consumer will, as usual, have to buy a new 4K Blu-ray player and a new 4K recorder to go with their new 4K TV ... and all the old favourites will get yet another re-re-re-release in the new format ... hope you've got a big bank balance and deep pockets, because you're gonna need it if you want to go with 4K. :-\
Of course, by the time they settle all that, the TV makers will have already moved on to 8K, 16K, etc. and the vicious money circle starts its next cycle.
