48 Inch, you are overpaying for the 4K resolution. It looks the same as a 1080p with that screen size and a normal viewing distance.

Yeah, I figured this is the case with 4K. What's the minimum size where 4K is actually useful? 60"+?

I've been looking for something around 48" for the bedroom, and should just go with 1080p, yeah? Much cheaper going that route as well.

It's more about a distance to size ratio.
If you're 100ft away, you couldn't notice the differnce between 720p and 4k (just an example)

For most people, i'd say 60"... maybe 55"

There is thread floating around here. I know for say a 60" which is a respectable size you'd notice the difference at like 5-6' away which is still pretty close.

The other points brought up about the subsequent changes is also valid. Your TV becomes bottle-necked by all your Peripherals (i.e receivers, players, cable package and streaming services etc.)

That statement is not entirely accurate. My friend owns a new Sony 48" HDTV and I own this 4K Samsung model (bought for around $700 with $150 GC during boxing day). While the two TVs have indistinguishable picture quality on regular TV broadcasts (even with the Samsung's 4K conversion engine), the picture quality is day and night in Samsung's favour when it comes to native 4K videos, from sources like Youtube, Discovery and Ultraflix. I haven't tried the 4K contect on Netflix yet but I suspect the Samsung would be superior there as well. So it is patently untrue that you can't see 4K difference on 48inch TVs (as I and my friend can see this plainly and right away), just that you must be careful not to mix up picture reproduced by Samsung's up-convert engine and native 4K content.

For the potential buyer, one must decide whether the sparse 4K content is worth the uptick in price. It may be, when 4K gets more ubiquitous and affordable especially for live TV. The only thing I find useless about this model is the SmartTV component, as web navi is cumbersome and unable to play flash (so I just have it connected to my PC).

Thanks for the info, folks. Much appreciated.

Valid points too about upgrading everything else. The downside is that I'm in small town Alberta where I'm currently maxed at 6mbps. Hey Telus, will you be upgrading the area anytime soon? Nope. Not a priority.

Anyway, unless I move to an area with proper high speed, the whole 4K upgrade idea isn't even a choice at this point. First world problems though, right? I should really just shut up at this point. Ha.

I bought my 49inch 4k TV not for the 4k but instead to have a TV that's better than your average 1080p TV in terms of picture quality.

4k is not a question any more this year unless the price is like 3x difference, or you can buy a 70" 1080p for the price of 50" 4k but I highly doubt that

A nice thing about 4K TV's is that you are less likely to notice dead pixels compared to 1080p TV's, due to the smaller pixel size.

Add it to your cart. 797$ is from a different seller.
Price errors are the only real sales :)
I refused to be gouged by canadian retailers when purchases can be made in the U.S for a LOT less..
