Seiki 50-Inch 4K TV Eyes-On: How the Hell Is a TV This Beautiful So Cheap?

Yesterday, Chinese OEM Seiki officially priced its 50-inch Ultra HD TV at under a grand, making it the cheapest 4K television in the history of the absurd resolution. Cheaper even, than the last round of super-cheap Chinese 4Ks we saw. The price is so cheap, and the brand-name is so unfamiliar, that you had to wonder if this television was a joke — or worse — a piece of garbage. I'm one of the first people in America to see this beast, and I'll tell you right now: I can't believe my eyes. Read More >>

4K TVs are visual deliciousness in a box but are a little (to put it lightly) out of reach for peasants like us as they come with a price tag either equal to the cost of a car, or are only considered cheap because they're graciously not priced like a car. Eyegasms ain't cheap friends. But one company whose name I'm not even sure how to pronounce is trying to change the whole damn game. SEIKI has a 50-inch 4K TV for only £900. Yeah. Read More >>

In fact, Sony's new 55- and 65-inch sets are downright inexpensive (by comparison) and will be available for pre-order by the end of the month. Read More >>

See You In 20 Years' Time, 3D

It’s not too often that I make a tech prediction that actually comes true, although like many people, I prefer to think I’m better at it than I really am. Still, when one does come out as I foretold I am not immune to rubbing my hands with glee and smiling with a cheeky grin, which is exactly what happened with the recent demise of 3D television.

Philips' Stunning New TV Looks More Like a Work of Art Than a Screen

4K Displays Are Going to Rock Your World, But 4K Phones Are Just Stupid
