Why HD is already yesterday's news: Samsung's prototype Ultra HDTV

Tech.co.uk , 11 Jan 2008:

In a CES crammed with all manner of HDTVs, Samsung stands out from the pack with a prototype 82-inch "pseudo" Ultra HDTV, which has a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. (Note: 1080p has a resolution of 1920×1080.)

The story is too old to be commented.

"Well, the good news here is that despite the preliminary trials in Japan, the technology isn't expected to become mainstream consumer technology for about another 20 years. So, for the time being at least you're perfectly safe with that 720p TV."

20 years is WAY too long and considering OLED tv's are already on sale in Japan, the OLED market can only keep growing. I don't think many people will be buying this kind of tv in the future.

Check my attached pics, since I was able to see the 27" model. 1000000:1 contrast ratio is oh-so beautiful!

Oled is not the future SED is.

I want an SED so bad. But between the two, OLED's are better. It's better visually ( contrast ratio, response time, etc), that's what it comes down to eh :P. However, SED's do have some advantage such as price/size (at the moment) and a longer lifespan than OLED's. But, if I had to have a choice, OLED's hands down. Thing is, SED'S ARE BEING DELAYED CONSTANTLY :(

Unfortunately the 'Ultra' part is short for 'ultra expensive'. I heard that you don't buy the tv using cash, but instead you exchange it for the deed to your house.
