I was wandering around currys and discovered a couple of ultra hd tvs showing native content.  I was kind of gobsmacked.  It was very impressive - I suppose what I thought hd would be like (I'm still underwhelmed by HD).

saw some native content running on a Samsung and LG 4k display last week and some of it was very impressive, shame there's none of it actually available to consumers in the uk.

RE: Ultra hd

Next time you're in London, go visit Selfridges and Harrods.

Ultra HD is stunning with the trailers etc that I saw on the Sony, Samsung, and LG sets there.

I am still hesitant on LCD though as I have yet to see one that views as naturally as a VT or ZT Panny or KRP Pio.....  Regardless of what a banned Siamese troll on these forums says Smile

I am just hoping that OLED UHD has both developed and dropped in price enough before my Pio dies and I am seeking a replacement, as full HD OLED hasn't exactly made me wish for a better screen. Also the availability of UHD content too would be handy as currently no point buying a UHD screen with no content. Even the PS4 and XBone can't play at that resolution.... Heck they struggle so far playing 1080P if recent articles are true.

In the end, I may just have to buy a secondhand ZT to tie me over until all the above stands true.
