I see Samsung and LG 4K TV's in the $400 to $600 range all the time. There is practically no difference in price between 1080p and 4K TV's. I am not even talking about the lower range models. Most are Smart, at least 3 HDMI, Wifi, USB etc.

Prices have come down. When I got my 4K TCL TV for $550 for Christmas, the next cheapest 4K available was a Vizio for $999.

Looking to jump into the 4k tv world. Just debating on if I should go for 55 or 65". On the topic of now or wait, would it be worth it to wait until january for after Christmas sales? I never paid attention, not sure how good the January sales are.

I never wait for sales. Pretty sure December sales > January sales though.

You sure about that HDR? Seems unusually cheap. Good price for a 65 inch 4K (even better at today's reduced price) but way, way below market rates if it actually has HDR.

We bought a 55in Samsung with curved screen a couple months ago. After playing around with HDR on and off, I left it turned off. With it on I couldn't adjust the screen to my liking. Maybe it was just the content a the time?

With regard to the content available in 4K, just be sure to get a TV that will let you pull Youtube videos. There are some real good videos of National Parks and other travel destinations. Some great time lapse videos as well. Also there are some real good videos taken by the newer drones built for that purpose.

The great thing is, you will be watching some videos of places that you may no longer be in physical condition to see for yourself, because you are too old or infirm. In my late 50s, we finally got to do some traveling out west, and I found myself lamenting that I didn't discover what was out there to see, much earlier in life so I could have hiked in to see them. Now I can see what it would have been like to hike up to Angel's Landing in Zion NP, or down into Bryce Canyon, instead of staying on level ground looking from a distance.

It's only a matter of time before the cable systems start supplying 4K movies.

Can't really go wrong with samsung 6000 series 2016 model sets. Great picture, 4K with 60FPS to use as monitors if you want, and it has 4:4:4 subsampling.

I prefer HDR off... HDR in my opinion doesn't make images look more lifelike, it makes them look oversaturated with too much color and unnatural. I'm sure it will improve when more content is released, but I'd rather the image look lifelike. Still, these sets do support it.

And the streaming services already are. We are currently watching Mad Dogs Season 1 on Amazon: filmed in 4K. It's very nice,
