Should You Buy An Ultra High-Definition 4K TV Monitor?
Consumers have finally been given access to the best in home entertainment with the most advanced television ever produced. Known as 4K TV (or, Ultra High-Definition Television) the picture quality far exceeds that of the standard old high def TVs. Let’s take a look at a few of the benefits and we are sure you will decide that now is the time to upgrade your television monitor.
For decades people were subjected to severe eye strain due to the inferior quality of old CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) television sets. These sets weren’t even able to display color until the late 1960s. A huge advancement was made with the advent of 720p in the 1990s, and 1080p resolution in the early 2000s.
Unfortunately, even these better resolution television monitors continue to disappoint. Reports of eyestrain and other problems continue to flow in. One of the best solutions to the problem is the new Ultra High-Definition 4K TVs with picture quality almost equal to that of real life. With these advancements 3D looks much better, anything broadcasted in 4k UHD looks more amazing.
One of the reasons for continued eyestrain is that most people are unaware that standard old high-def isn’t really high-def at all. Each eye sees the image as half of what is displayed. Only the new 4K TVs have the ability to display in a full 1080p resolution to each eye, reducing eye strain and giving you the sharpest, clearest image, and highest resolution ever available.
The earliest models of 4k UDH TVs were expensive to buy. They debuted in 2012 and were priced anywhere from $20,000-$50,000. The early adapters of this technology were LG and Sony.
