TV's that are 4K will become smaller in time but they are also $20,000 at this point. And there is no programming done in 4K resloution in the United States. A few countries do such as South Korea. Most of the programing in the US is either 720P or 1080i.

 


55" 4K Sony XBR55X900A - $4,999.

 

They are available, and they are already coming down in price.


WHen they first hit the 70+ models wer 20K. Does not change the fact there is no 4K braodcasting in the US or 4K games as of yet.

I have my ps3 currently hooked up to a 1080p home theater projector system. So I will most likely be using my ps4 on their as well.  I wouldn't bother getting a 4k tv until they get cheaper, like $500-600.  This is because ps4 only supports 4k movies, which isn't really that big of a difference.  1080p will (hopefully) be the standard for this next gen.

Anything HD.

Looking at the PS4 ports, it seems it will *only* support HDMI ready devices.

We should see a lot more 1080P this generation and hopefully braodcasting catch's up soon as well.

If you're looking to play 4K games on your PS4, you'll be very much disappointed. The top end gaming PCs of this generation can barely play 4K on max settings with a reasonable framerate. Having a console with mid-tier computational power rendering 4K games is simply not going to happen (maybe with cloud computing but that is also far away).

 

Games this generation will hopefully be running at 1080p @ 60fps with ultra settings. With the new horsepower of the PS4, it should easily be able to handle better particle effects, lighting, and physics. No doubt you should at least invest into a 1080p display as a 720p display simply won't cut it this generation.

 

You will be able to decode 4K video off the PS4 but as others have stated, there isn't much 4K content out there today.

 

To answer which TV one should buy for the PS4, hands down it should be the Panasonic TC-P50ST60. This plasma has the picture quality that rivals top end plasmas and its only $999.99 which is a steal. I plan on purchasing this TV if I could find a room to put it in. It has been highly praised by several websites and has rave reviews from consumers.

I have the Panasonic S64 (step below the ST60) but I'm returning it due to the annoyingly loud buzzing from the back of the TV. Can hear it from 10+ feet away. Is this going to be the same for all Panasonic plasmas? I'm hesitant to go through the hassle of lugging another 50-inch Panasonic home if it'll have the same issues.

Do you think I should exchange the Plasma and hope the next one doesn't buzz as badly or just go with an LED? Something cheap like the Sony R450A (non-smart TV.. Hopefully good for low input)

I researched your buzzing issue and it looks to be a widespread issue dealing with both the S-series and the ST-series. It seems to plague the lower tiers of Panasonic's plasmas.

 

I generally do not like LED or LCD TVs in the fact that image quality is widely varied depending on what LED array companies use. For you however, I think its your best bet to go LED.

 

By the way, thanks for the heads up on the buzzing issue of Panny's plasmas. Will definitely keep this in mind if I purchase it.

I wonder if 4K TV's would be worth it. Quite pricey!

Sony has a 55" 4K HDTV for $5,000 at best buy . Remember you get what you pay for and going cheap is not always a good choice.
