I think 4k adoption rates have increased in a large function to ps4 pro and the 1x and even pc gaming had influenced it to some degree though I wouldn’t heed seeing some numbers if 4k vs 1080p at this indicate in time vs last gen.
I feel people will adopt 4k tvs when Tvs are the main tv set fabricated and 1080p are the cheap budget models, with 720p panels not even made anymore. Mass public don’t really care if it’southward 4K, only if it’due south the simply option or the principal option it will sell.
So, from the past iii years?
You can’t get a good 1080p set anymore, and to exist honest I’m glad. In larger sizes the pixel door effect is massive.

Since I call up this probably needs to be clarified: What exactly was “this time last-gen”? PS3/Wii came out in 2006, and so I presume early on-mid 2011?
Yea effectually 2010/2011.
The problem I nonetheless have updating my other televisions is that – if I’m going to upgrade, I
want to go OLED. And OLED is still besides pricey for a secondary Television in the family room, and notwithstanding besides small for the theater room (the 77″ – the largest size – is $10K+). That, and I nonetheless think there’south room for big improvement on the input lag. I hate that I’m still using 1080p for TV, movies, and even games when my friends come up over. But I’d like to experience confident my next big TV purchases volition still feel peachy ~5 years downwardly the road.
But 4K consoles have only been out for 17 months (Pro) and five months (X).
I bought a fifty inch Sony Bravia similar 2 years ago so I probably won’t upgrade anytime before long.
and a damn big tv
I feel people volition adopt 4k tvs when Tvs are the primary television receiver made and 1080p are the inexpensive budget models, with 720p panels not fifty-fifty made anymore. Mass public don’t actually intendance if it’southward 4K, but if it’southward the merely option or the main choice it volition sell.
They’re already upkeep and chief TVs. When you lot go to Walmart yous literally have to go to the discount corner to discover 1080p TVs.
4k is nonetheless very expensive hither (to me) and I’m in no bustle to become to it. My pc monitor is non fifty-fifty 1080, only my showtime (and only) hdtv is. I promise it keeps working for many more than years.
Too, until I’thousand not really really certain on future proof HDR standards (for futurity consoles and digital content) I’k not fifty-fifty bothering investigating a new 4k/hdr fix.
Faster. At to the lowest degree on the TV side.
Is this truthful?
Information technology feels to me like adoption of 4K is more than to do with having a broken / old 1080p TV than actually gravitating towards 4K. – Gamers with Pro/Ten being the exception.
Is this true?
It feels to me like adoption of 4K is more than to practise with having a cleaved / former 1080p Tv than really gravitating towards 4K. – Gamers with Pro/X being the exception.
I think people only don’t remember how long ago 1080 happend. And the beginning years were very slow and many withal went either fat TVs or 720p.
4k is basically just starting yr 3 now.
To produce college resolution 4k panels is easier and cheaper than alter from one engineering science to another. The transition is just smother. For product, retail and too consumers. Makes sense…
And the importance of the Pro and X is overstated hither. I agree with the above affiche who said that adjacent-gen volition be the real examination of 4k adoption.
It’s just a matter of time before information technology becomes common identify.
I don’t think that’southward a fair comparison, mainly considering PS4 and Xbox One did non launch in 2013 as 4k consoles. When nosotros bought a PS3 in 07, we bought an Hard disk drive 1080p idiot box to become along with it. How many people bought 4k sets in 2013 to play Xbox One and PS4?
Honestly, 720 to 1080 felt like a half-step, whereas 1080 to 4K feels similar a full upgrade to me.
1440p (2.5K) isn’t even mainstream notwithstanding…
1440p is a stopgap, nobody sells 1440p TVs in mainstream.
Anyone who buys a 4K TV today probably well above ii/3rds are going to be 4K in well-nigh places.
I think we’re farther away from 4k adoption than people recall. 1080p (even 720p) is skillful enough for most people.
Personally speaking, I’m waiting for a overnice 4k OLED monitor. That’s still years away if information technology e’er happens.
Nonetheless, I got a 4K because it’s not bad for gaming and 1080p content still looks “OK” while I expect for the content to grab upward.

4K hit when many people had just upgraded to 1080p and TVs are pretty well made , hard to justify upgrading when they work fine and you need to salvage money.
The thing is, 4K media simply does not have the same “no-brainer” push which 720/1080p held over the masses. People were leaping from 480p TVs to HD flat screens, oftentimes receiving large upgrades to both applied science and screen size, so the WOW gene was immense and breathtaking. 1080p to 4K inside the same tech bracket looks sharper, merely only does not immediately blow people away in such a eye stopping fashion.
Some other large, significant factor is that circulate telly is not 4K. And so the near consumed class of media is doing literally nothing to push people to 4K, where as the appearance of the cable companies’ HD receivers got A LOT of people to upgrade their TVs to reap the benefits.
When people can lookout their tardily night sitcoms, dramas, and reality shows in 4K, sales will go bananas. 4K is niche because the TV alone gives you nothing, you have to leave and purchase native 4K media devices and products to accept advantage.
spending £250-450 on a PS4 Pro/XB1X
upgrading my blu rays to 4K. if i bought a 4K tv set i’d still be playing games, watching netflix/blu rays at 1080p. it’southward just waay as well much money. my plan is to endeavor ditch physical media completely (getting there), expect for next gen consoles to be announced, purchase a 4K telly, await for consoles to come out and purchase one. that fashion i’m non dropping all my money at one time on a new Tv/panel. also for whatever it’south worth nobody i know has a 4K tv.
on the PC/steam side of things according to steam hardware stats:
user meridian over the terminal 48 hrs is 15,521,989.
72.01% (-four.46% / 11,177,384 users) are using a 1080p screen
xiii.92% (2,160,660 users) are using other resolution screens
9.86% (+1.66% / ane,530,468 users) are using a 768p screen
3.l% (+0.10% / 543,269 users) are using a 1440p screen
0.71% (+0.22% / 110,206 users) are using a 2160p screen
4K is definitely non mainstream and probably won’t selection up for another couple years.
Both my 4k 55″ TVs were around $600-700
Granted one was on blackness Friday
jump from 1080 to 4k is but just resolution. which is worthless for nearly people.
people swtiched to 1080p because it was more than than resolution. erstwhile tvs just used too much power and had shit color. and produced heat
jump from 1080 to 4k is simply just resolution. which is worthless for virtually people.
besides you’re non gonna observe much a difference unless you lot sit closer or buy a larger screen. i have a 42″ 1080p and was looking to get a 55″ 4K so straight away information technology’south gonna be more expensive. a 42″ 1080p goggle box has a pixel density of 52.45. to go that same density at 4K y’all would demand an 84″ screen!
I personally don’t encounter enough deviation from 1080p to 4k to consider an upgrade. Maybe for a projector, I could consider information technology.
I thought the same thing until…and this is going to audio actually silly, merely until I watched Netflix on my dad’s 4k TV. That’s when I went “…Huh. Okay, this actually really does look a lot amend.”
as well you’re not gonna notice much a difference unless you sit closer or buy a larger screen. i have a 42″ 1080p and was looking to get a 55″ 4K and so straight away information technology’southward gonna exist more expensive. a 42″ 1080p tv has a pixel density of 52.45. to get that same density at 4K you lot would need an 84″ screen!
yes. not to mention a lot of content is not available in 4k. about cable tv isn’t fifty-fifty 1080p. its upscaled or 720p.
or even streaming channels. the internet and television receiver needs to exist ameliorate to justify well-nigh people switching. they are cheap I tin go buy one right now. in fact it costs me more to buy both my 1080p tvs in 2011 and 2015 than it costs a really good 4k tv at present. only I don’t need information technology. i will become one when this tv dies.
I still have my 1080p tv and it withal looks amazing. god of war looks so skilful i cant imagine it looking better.
I felt the same way nearly some games(Wolfenstein two was one) on X1 until I saw them running on my roommates X1X on their 4K TV. Information technology gets fifty-fifty ameliorate.
I know a few with 4K TVs and plan to go i myself past the end of the year.
