So, what’s so great about 4K?
- Better resolution: The high pixel counts allow 4 times the resolution as standard HD that most people are used to. I could really tell the difference right away. It felt like I should be able to walk right into the scene!
- More Image Depth: The high resolution allows the picture to look more like 3D without the glasses than ever before.
- Better color handling: The higher resolution also allows for the colors to blend more evenly, which add to the effect that you are watching in ‘real life’, rather than on a flat 2D surface.
At the Best Buy In Store Events, there will be product specialists on site from Samsung, Sony, LG, Vizio, and Sharp to help you experience and learn about 4K UHD. They will be doing vendor demonstrations and answering any questions you may have. You can learn more, including how to earn a $25 Best Buy Gift Card by participating.
I already took my boys to see these TVs up close and personal. As much as they are exposed to the newest technology, they are not so easily impressed, but I must admit that the display of crisp images and bright colors had them mesmerized, at least momentarily. The staff greeted us right away and they were very friendly and knowledgeable.
