    I bought a 4K TV

    It's a Sony KD-55X9000E, which in America is an X900E or in Europe an XE90. The first thing I did was set up the PS4 and enable HDR, put GT Sport in the slot and did a lap of the 'Ring in the late afternoon.

    It was eye-meltingly pleasing.

    I have only a standard PS4 and honestly the picture is clear enough at 1080p for me to not worry about 4K right now (although I have seen God and it was a God of War clip on YouTube at 4K). I'm just happy with the HDR representation, as that was the whole point in buying this screen. I was skeptical about HDR at first, but then I got an iPhone X and was completely sold on the tech. But the big benefit in HDR is not how bright things can get, it's about how near-perfectly black the blacks can get, and watching favourite movies like Star Wars (which have lots of black in space scenes, coupled with the letterboxing) will be excellent.

    And right now I'm downloading a 1.6GB firmware update. For a TV. It really is the future.

    Damn right. mine is still in use as the bedroom TV (42" about a foot from the end of my bed! ) and it honestly feels like it will go on forever. It must be 8 years old at least.

    Speaking of 4K, I'm almost certain that Asus can only make good internal computer components, but anything else they are absolute shit at. I've had awful luck with their tablets, and the 4k monitor that I have that's less than a year old is developing all sorts of nastiness. They're going to repair it under warranty, but sucks being without a monitor for at least two weeks.

    No problems at all with my motherboard and videocard, but everything else just shows all the corners they cut to keep costs down.

    The money you've saved in not upgrading your plasma, you can put towards an OLED yeah

    Those things really are the kings of TVs right now.

    My Panasonic TC-P50G25 had a board fail after the first year, but is still working. It lets out a buzz while showing mostly bright/light scenes, but picture quality is still excellent.
