I have been using a 1080p plasma for my big screen and a 1ms/144hz/1080p for my PC gaming for several years now. When 4K was new I didn’t see any reason to jump on this new standard. I like the picture on my plasma and plasma is dead so I know there will never be a 4K plasma for consumers. Then came HDR.
HDR looks like the feature that will get me to jump to 4K. The main thing holding me back is fear of buyer’s remorse. I know what HDR is and I have seen it in stores but all of the screens that I would consider a viable plasma replacement are $3500+ in price. I have also looked at 4K discs and the selection is minimal. I know streaming is the future but there is no comparison between a bluray and the same content streamed.
So I am creating this thread for discussion. Is 4K/HDR worth it yet? Are there any good PC monitors available for gaming under this new standard? Has enough content been created to warrant buying in?
