I suggest you buy a good OLED TV. Only LG for now.

Not a good idea yet, they still have issues with burn in. At least according to cnet
http://www.cnet.com/products/lg-eg9600/
The manual reads: "If a fixed image displays on the TV for a long period of time, it will...become a permanent disfigurement on the screen. This...burn-in is not covered by the warranty." It advises owners to avoid displaying 4:3 aspect ratio images and other fixed images for longer than an hour at a time. I didn't actually "test" burn-in in my review sample, but it didn't seem to retain static images as badly as plasmas I've tested in the past.

Was not aware of that, thanks for the tip. Guess I know who to bother whenever I need to buy a new display!
It's always best to wait with technology, but sometimes you have to buy something and if I had to right now I would get an OLED.

Still like you mentioned before, waiting for 4K/HDR/etc to be more extent, mainstream and standard would be the best option to go.

And better get the flat version, curved is just marketing.

Get 4k, they're cheap and future proof.



Just got an open box 4K from Best Buy. 55 inch Samsung SUHDTV for only $700. They have them on sale right now for $899. Very good price and the picture is incredible. They even have some really good 7.1 4K receivers on sales as well so if you are big on picture and sound you can get some good deals now.



The absence of evidence is NOT the evidence of absence...

Wait to get more info on PS4.5 before buying a new T.V.



                                                                                     

4k doesnt make games any easier compared to 1080.

For about a month now I was planning on getting a 1080p TV. I currently own a 720p TV which I had for 5 years, and I want an upgrade. I was planning on getting a full HD 1080p Television for my PS4 so I can enjoy the beautiful graphics all the way... and I have the money so why not?.  

But after these rumors about the Playstation 4.5(Or the PS4K) I been thinking ALOT if I should just skip 1080p and jump straight to 4K. But I don't know what to do. If Sony does some type of "Trade in your old PS4 and save $200!" deal I WILL get the ps4K and 4k tv. But if the PS4K costs like $500 with no trade in deal then I'll just stick with my current PS4 and get a 1080p TV.

What would you do if you were in my position?     

Also btw gaming monitors are too expensive, not getting those.

I just bought a SONY KDL-55W800C back in November of 2015.  I only paid less than $700 USD.  It's 55" 1080P, and after tweeking it is SWEET.

4k televisions have come down in price, but they are anywhere from $200 o $300 USD more expensive than 1080P televisions of comparable brands and specs.

A 4K television  is most effective when used as a PC monitor and displaying high resolution images.  Other than that, I don't think they're worth my money at least for now.  There is 4K streaming with various sources with select titles such as Netflix or OnDemand.  But you have to have an minimal internet speed which I cannot recall off of the top of my head.

From my personal perspective, 4K televisions are affordable, but I think it's worth saving the money by buying a cheaper but quality 1080P television.  Let the early adopters lead the way until 4K content is more commonly available.



Does anyone like MMDs? (MikuMikuDance) Let's chat.

You know how 4K TV demos in stores are mostly still camera shots? That's because in motion (and games are mostly in motion) you can't tell any difference whatsoever.

I think 4K is stupid, and I also think big TVs are stupid so it kinda goes hand in hand. You can improve the picture by a large margin just by learning how to properly set up the TV and your devices.

Get a samsung JU7500 it has a marvelously low input lag for a 4k tv. Something that most 4k tv's don't have due to the lack of quick upscaling. If you go for a 1080p TV look for what is cheap and gets good reviews.

I've 55 inch js9000 and it has got low input lag too and really good quality tv

Go to rtings.com they got review for most of 4K tvs 



Hey, if you're picking up a new TV, and can find an affordable 4K one, go for it. No harm in having one now. 4K will be commonplace before we know it. Maybe a few years for gaming still, but TV and movies at least will probably all be going 4K by 2017.
