Misconception? 4k TVs cost too much?

Forums - General Discussion - Misconception? 4k TVs cost too much?

"too much" is highly relative. I would have considered $500 too much earlier.
As of now? I just dropped five times that on a TV.

Also that 60'' at $550? That is probably a hisense or a Vizio. Little features, cheap parts, no HDR etc. You get what you pay for as far as things go.

Well, that's too much for me. I would need to work three months to purchase it.



Eh if I had $550 for a tv, that would be better spent on my next computer, console, or my games for the year or 2 / 3.



Wow do some of you think you're supposed to buy a TV by working a few days? 4K tvs are cheap now but they are still luxury and working at minimum wage isn't supposed to get you these luxury that easily. Gotta work for it. Even gaming isn't supposed to be cheap yet people save for months to afford these consoles.

When HDTVs went on sale they cost above 2000$ in Canada for years. I remember playing Mass Effect on a CRT tv because I couldn't afford an HDTV. Getting a 50in 4K tv at less than 600$ is really cheap imo.



$500+ is still a lot of money for many people, especially when that TV is likley replacing a fully functional 1080p one. Most people will end up with a 4k TV eventually, but right now someone has to really value image quality for a 4k TV + a Pro/Scorpio to be worth it. I'm one such person, and i still think long and hard before making a purchase like that.

$500? I know that's less in pounds but what I'm willing to pay for a TV is around 150 quid and I know the exchange rate ain't that good! So that's a fucking expensive TV!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Truth, but if you're only willing to spend $500 on a tv, the 4k tv is still probably better than what those people currently own.



They're cheap - unless you want a good one. Then it gets expensive. And by expensive I mean, for example, $3500+.



$1000+ is already quite a lot if you ask me :p

But yes, you can get cheaper 4K TVs (50") for like $500 CAD

Yeah, what people constantly forget is that nothing costs too much if you have enough money.
