TV Summary from CES: Quick Look at TV Progress
UHD TV Overview - CES 2014.
While 4K has been the big thing for a while, there were already 5K and 8K models already on display at CES 2014. 4K can be streamed 15 MB/s or faster.
Bottom line? Displays are beautiful, but manufacturers have not improved the software for controlling televisions. Hopefully, 2015 will be the year of the User Interface for televisions.
Panasonic? Bad user interface.
Sharp? Content is priority.
LG? Good work on the OS and User Interface ... See bottom video (below) ...
Many tech gurus recommend just getting a regular flat panel TV with a beautiful display, and adding Apple TV or ROKU.
