Ultra HD made a big splash at CES this year, and is starting to tease us with actual sets showcasing huge sizes as well as equally large price tags. These Ultra HD sets offer huge 3840 X 2160 resolutions where measly HDTVs have only 1920x1200. I'm already dreaming about the possibility of owning one of these beauties.
: The boldest design concept comes from Samsung, in up to 110" to showcase the glory of 4k resolution. A huge, boxy, (but thin in appearance) frame surrounds the screen to give the impression that it's floating in the center. Samsung's been known to release out of the box television designs
, and this one is definitely an interesting design study.
: Sony's upcoming Bravia UHD televisions continue the Sony tradition of solid design and engineering at a premium price. The new Bravias have a super high gloss finish and doesn't try to hide the speakers, showcasing their big bold look as part of the design. Sony's XBR model
brings a more minimal speaker design and a different look in up to 84" of 4k TV, at an extreme price of $25,000!
: LG's UHD doesn't try to impress with its design, looking just like any other HDTV you can buy today. It doesn't skimp on features though, and LG's sets have been vastly improving in quality and selection.
: Toshiba offers its new UHD in 58", 65" and 84" sizes.
: A new name (to us) in televisions, Hisense brought their UHD to CES 2013.
