I read a couple of articles where the 'experts' said they would rather buy an OLED tv than a 4k tv.

I would because the reason I settled for 55" was the pixels on the 65" were visible at a normal viewing distance. 4k means smaller pixels, less problems with the screendoor effect and can go bigger without being annoyed.

Chorus are running a competition to win an LG 55 inch ultra HD 4k television at GigaTown.co.nz ... of course there's still no real content to watch, so even getting one for free is of dubious benefit.

I can think of around 6,000 benefits from getting one free

For the money, you'd be better off getting a projector and a decent screen.

Kopkiwi: For the money, you'd be better off getting a projector and a decent screen.


Exactly what I was thinking while reading this thread. My current projector is only 720p but still looks stunning with a nice fixed 100" screen. Upgrading to 1080p later this year although I'm not expecting a huge difference from the resolution jump, more the extra contrast and other picture enhancements available on newer models.

I doubt I'll go to a 4K projector until they come down to the current 1080p prices so probably many years away.

If you cant go to projection then I would say stick with 1080p and get the best TV for colour/motion/contrast, it will look fantastic and you will save yourself a bit of money I suspect.

I think you might be pleasantly surprised with the jump from 720p to 1080p. I did it a couple years back and the difference in picture quality was huge, especially at 106"
