Last year was the year of 4K, otherwise known as UHD. As with most breakthrough technologies, there is usually a pretty sizeable gap between when they first start making the rounds and when they actually make it into the homes of consumers the world over. Case and point as plain old HD, which if you even remember, was first announced back in 1999. It took about 10 years for HD to effectively penetrate the market. Most of the 4K sets that we saw last year, if they were available to consumers at all, were in the five-figure range, and not really something most of us would be able to consider. This year however, we were pleasantly surprised by some of the pricetags on 4K TV sets. Big brands like Samsung and LG unveiled their entry 4K sets at around 3 grand. One of the biggest showstoppers this year was from VIZIO, believe it or not, that unveiled a fantastic looking 50" 4K TV for a mere $999.
