    I don't think he wants to spend a lot of money. But what's 4K VPR?

    Every time I hear "4K", all I can think of is this:

    A video projector - I think DLP - able to show 4K material. Sony's has great ones out.

    *checks*

    Sony's 3-digit signifier for all of their current projectors is VPL.

    They have a couple of 4K models, at $15k and $28k. It looks like they are SXRD, not DLP (SXRD is Sony's own take on the multiple LCD tech that DLP mostly replaced).
    Get that weak shit off my track

    AV forums wrote a good article on this very subject recently: http://www.avforums.com/article/what...rojector.10313
    Personally not for me at the moment. I am still very happy with the performance of my first generation Pioneer Kuro 428XD which isn't even Full HD resolution. I'd need to see quality 4K content first before I even consider it and that isn't going to come from streaming or broadcast services in my opinion.

    have decided for definite to steer clear of the 4K set just now and in fact a new TV completely for now. The review of the 4K set didn't help!

Sure, itís 4K (even thatís not strictly true considering the significant drop in resolution with movement), but there exist many other critical elements of picture quality including contrast ratio, shadow detail and motion handling, and the UB850 flunked the majority of them.

    I'd probably wait on 4k. Unless you NEED a new television, right now.

    But, I also wouldn't get a 49" one either. Unless your home is tiny and can't fit anything larger. If I was going to get a 4k screen, it would probably be 65"

    I'm sticking with my venerable but still pretty good Panasonic Plasma for now.
