Black Friday is here; and Cyber Monday too. The 4K TV makers have just added their Ultra High Definition to the list of Black Friday promotions. This is because they are trying to spur an early holiday shopping traffic – both offline and online.
Such a time, last year, the 4K TV hype offered a stratospheric price of about $7,000, not forgetting that two years ago, the initial models cost about $20,000.
Starting on 27th November 2014, on Thanksgiving Day, Best Buy has decided to you buy the Samsung UHD 4K TV for just $899. This is a price cut of $500 and the first time the retailer has ever offered a 4K TV set for less than $1,000.
The retailer also has 4K TVs from other brands too, like Sony, Vizio, and LG.
These high-end TVs deliver a resolution that’s four times more than HDTVs, allowing you to watch 4K movies in an Ultra High Defection. Best Buy believes that improved high video quality will entice buyers into visiting their stores and acquire the 4K TVs.
The retailer is looking to better their sales this year compared to last year. And things are looking good. That is, according to a chief equities strategist in Belus Capital Advisors, Brian Sozzi, has noted that consumers are actually showing interest.
Better still; the sale of 4K TVs has risen nine-folds in the past year alone, evidenced by the fact that consumers are spending more money for these UHDs rather than the traditional HDTVs. I guess more folks prefer the high-resolution 4K movies and TV programs.
So, why are the UHD 4K TVs more popular this holiday season compared to the previous years? Well, more and more people are coming into terms with improved image quality, and have learnt to appreciate the satisfaction they get from watching 4K movies and mini-series.
Aside from that, the prices of the UHDs have also declined, faster than the HDTVs. And the promotion during Black Friday (and even Cyber Monday) is expected to create some awareness among the public. As a result, this accelerates the approval and acceptance of the UHD technology.
Now, if you are looking to replace that HDTV in your living room, then you need to consider lining up for the UHD 4K TV this Black Friday.
Since 4K TVs are new, the makers are constantly working on improving its production. In other words, for now, there aren’t much 4K movies to watch, but their content is expected to increase in the next few years.
This shouldn’t be a put off to you as the customer. The TV’s imaging quality is amazing and highly incredible.Read More
