    Haha LOL, did you ever experience that keyboard batteries are low and sometimes a key-press does not register ?

    Well, the batteries are replaced now :)

    Fly to the US and buy, much cheaper lol.

    Why are Sony re-inventing the wheel.
    There is already a colour standard that runs from 30bit to 48bit called Deep Color / xvYCC.

    And one will need a Rig with 3930k along with 2x or 3x Titans to be able to play at that Res. NO THANK YOU SIR!

    Although the ones that can afford it most will probably be able to afford the above mentioned Rig or better too.

    So I will hold on my Sammy 59" and its measly 1080p Res for now. :D

    Input lag on a screen like that would make it home cinema primarily.

    PC connection might only accept a 1080p signal, or interpret a 1080p signal. Need more information to say for sure.

    They should work on true led tv's and not trying to force us to go to 4k, which there is no content for and the companies don't even put out full hd yet.

    H265 4K TV only needs double the bandwidth of H264 1080p TV.
    Pretty good.

    well I just bought me a Seiki 50" Slim LED 4KTV for $1,300 that I will use as a computer monitor and will move to my bedroom when I get a bigger tv like maybe that vizio 70" if it comes out for a reasonable price?

    $5,000 for a 55" is just way to much for an increased resolution when it's made with the same LED panels available for full HD today!

    I want. I also want one to be about 24-30" so I can have a reasonably sized screen for my 'puter.

    What are you on about? A 50" 4K for $1300? 4K?! On which planet? I was shocked when I heard about these 4K sets for $7000 and $5000. Just a few months ago these things were lowest $19000! I don't think you know what you're talking about pal.
