Re: Sony's 4K 84-inch LED TV Now in Stores for $24,999.99

Even if I had $25K + tax + delivery, etc. for this Sony 4K TV, I don't think this TV would be a good investment especially with no active 4K content around. And even if the content eventually shows up say 5 or 10 years from now, the TV itself may no longer be valid since other 4K TV's at that time will be a lot cheaper but more importantly those new 4K TV's will have all the "initial bugs" for a lack of a better word fixed and more ready for prime time.. Moreover, say worst case, 4K content for consumers never become a reality due to high price of bandwidth and other technical constraints that can't be controlled, then the 4K TV here would be no longer be something folks will want to have. Just some marketing talk about the potential of the tv that will never materialize.

yeah....what tripplej just said.

If I recall TV history correctly, RCA wanted to sell color TVs but with no color content available what would there be for owners to watch. RCA had Bonanza done in color just so they could sell color TVs. Bet Sony Pictures will release 4K content just to get the ball rolling on selling 4K TVs.

I think this is too much for a TV at 25k. I'd consider this if I have a lot money to spend. I just spend the money to improve my home theater instead.

To say this is not good value, it's too much money etc is silly.

We are not the target audience for this TV.

The Russian billionairess who just bought the penthouse in Manhattan for $88 million? She will probably buy 8 of them, one for each room.

It may be silly to say that $25K is too much money for an 84" TV, but unless someone can demonstrate that this TV offers a proportionately greater (i.e., a five-times-better) viewing experience compared to a $5K HD TV or projector, it isn't silly to say that an 84" TV for $25K is not a good value.

Re: Sony's 4K 84-inch LED TV Now in Stores for $24,999.99

Ive said this before but the only good this TV would be is using it as a huge PC monitor. 4K would make the image from a PC spectacular compared to any non 4K HD TV out there. Sadly $25,000 makes that far less appealing.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Products like this do not exist because they are a good value. They exist as an attempt to create a new market segment and for early adopters for whom cost is no object.

I disagree that there is not value in higher resolution. The impact of higher resolution sources and displays goes beyond whether you can see the pixels or not.

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

I agree, which is why I said it's not silly to say they are not a good value.

I didn't say there's no value in higher resolution.
