In the past, we've cautioned against buying "Ultra HD" 4K TV deals; there was barely any content for the higher resolution, and, despite third-tier manufacturer's getting into the game, the sets were still mostly too expensive — especially compared to standard models.
A year has passed at this point, however, so has the situation changed? Netflix has been streaming 4K content for several months now, and Amazon just announced that it, too, will offer 4K streaming content. Moreover, prices are cheaper than ever before, with even high-end sets seeing massive price cuts during the Black Friday season. But does that mean that now is the right time to buy a 4K TV?
In this brief — yet lively — video, our experts discuss if 4K TVs are now a smart purchase.
Update: Joel McHale weighs in on the debate!
As you might have already heard, the film branch of Sony was recently hacked by a group known as "Guardians of Peace," and in the process, many personal email exchanges were leaked to the internet. A harmless, yet extremely adorable, example of such a leaked email comes from Joel McHale.
Introducing himself as someone you "might remember from such canceled Sony TV shows as Community," McHale proceeds to ask about how he can get a discount on a Sony 4K TV. (See the full email here.) When the internet caught on, McHale stuck to his guns — and inadvertently took a stance on the 4K debate.
So there you have it! They r outstanding! Case closed, everybody invest in 4K immediately.
