Ultra high definition, or 4K, is the hottest new breakthrough in home entertainment. It blows away the resolution on those normal 1080p high definition TVs right out of the water. In the past, 4K TVs had one big problem - the price. But, Vizio is bringing a model to the market at price more consumers can afford.
Ultra high definition TVs have had a hard time catching on with buyers because they're expensive and there isn't a lot of 4K ready movies and videos out there yet. It's a Catch-22. Few want to make the big investment in the screens because of the lack of content, but programmers aren't going to start producing more content until there's a bigger market out there.
That could all change thanks to Vizio. Its brand new 50-inch P-Series 4K LED TV has a starting price of $999.99. For comparison's sake, Samsung's 50-inch 4K TV starts at $1,499.99! Hopefully, this more affordable TV will lead to more buyers and thus more 4K content in the near future. Until then, you can stream select 4K titles from Netflix and YouTube straight to the new Vizio 4K TV. Of course, you can still watch all of the standard HD 1080p content out there, too. The Vizio P-Series has "upscaling" technology that converts 1080p content into Ultra HD resolution.
If you're not looking for a new TV, there's still some cool new tech out there that might interest you. Microsoft recently debuted a gadget that makes it easier than ever to cut the cord.
