We've seen quite a few different price ranges for UHDTVs but it seems like the $20 - $30 thousand range is a pretty safe bet for a 4K set. Samsung's comes in at a bit higher than that when converted from Korean Won, but it's being marketed as a luxury set, as evidenced by the stand that's in the spirit of something Bang & Olufsen would put together.
The last update to Netflix streaming allowed many more people to access HD streams, but users also found that it brought down the overall quality of HD streaming, making the picture softer and less defined. Netflix has responded by creating a new tier that they're calling Super HD. It doesn't take you past 1080p, but it does offer better video and audio for those that have nice fast internet connections. That's not the only requirement though – the improved HD is only available to a very limited number of people.
Westinghouse isn't a name we're used to thinking about when it comes to expensive, high quality sets, but that's exactly what the company is planning to bring to customers. Their new UHDTV strays from the Walmart sets we're used to seeing from them and goes into the high-end range. The ultra high-end range in fact, with a cost of $300,000.
One of the big issues with UHDTVs right now is that there's nothing to watch on them – at least not natively. You can upscale your 1080p Blu-rays but that's not quite the same experience. Sony is giving an option to help tide you over until they launch their 4K content delivery network this summer in the form of Blu-rays made especially for 4K sets.
Samsung's new 85 inch UHDTV is something that we knew about, but what came as a surprise is the way it looks. The set comes with a unique stand that you'll either absolutely love or absolutely hate. Instead of using a TV stand or a wall mount, you can set the Samsung S9 up on this metal stand, designed to show off the TV artistically.
