Sabi ng voters sa 2013 VE shootout, the 1080p Sammy plasma looked sharper than the 4K Sony LED:

we have the following 4K tvs in our market:

the LG 84LM9600 (649T sale price, 849T regular price at SnS/ Anson's)
the Sony KD-84X9000 (1.2M at Anson's)

I'd rather get a projector than either of these two.  ::) :P

Street price of the new 65 inch Sony 4K is about JPY 770,000 or USD7.7K. - and it's freaking amazing   :)  Of course bababa pa yon after actual release next month.

After staring at the new 65 and 55 inch 4K models of Sony for about an hour, I find it difficult to imagine how any 1080p plasma can possibly appear sharper.  Even the new VT60 looked "dot-matrixed" in comparison.  Also, these smaller Sony 4Ks appear even sharper than their 85 incher big brother. 

Oh well, sobrang advanced pa rin ang TV tech compared to available contents and especially compared to TV broadcast.

Ive watched a few movies remastered in 4K

Ghostbusters:  Definitely shows more details than the previous release
Glory:  Same as above
Titanic:   Very impressive for a 15 year old movie
Amazing Spider-Man:  Freaking nice indeed!

There's something to look forward to 4K HD.

Ganon na nga - downscaled to 1080p.   There is no commercial player for native 4K yet.  Pero maganda pagka-remaster ng Titanic and Spiderman.  I suppose kung mas bago yung movie, mas impressive lalabas.

Ang nakita ko palang na native 4K movie is yung demo trailer ng Sony ng After Earth - pero pang store lang yon.

Interesting thing I noticed, parang mas maliit pa yung resulting filesize ng 4K remaster compared to previous releases.

baka sa audio or extra features nacompromise kaya smaller file size?

yung existing blu ray ba ng titanic, isn't that already remastered from 4k? pati yata yung ghostbusters (original blu ray release) 4k remastered na. Would you know if there's a significant improvement?

maganda nang pagplanuhan tong 4k na 'to. :/ hahaha

4k remastered = 1080p pa din

4k = 4k.  hahaha

yan na lang siguro para mas simple?

so pag may "remastered", as of now, 1080p lang yan. Wala pang native 4k source sa physical medium so lahat ng may 4k for now are at max Full hd/1080p pa lang. (except for trailers/ads/short clips...someone correct me na lang if i'm wrong. kainis na sony kasi yan e)

kinda confused about this, if the 4k remastered bluray is still a 1080p content then how come the remastered disc is much more sharper than a conventional 1080p? arrggh...????

Because the previous master/releases sucked - as in the case of Ghostbusters and Glory.  Hehehe.

Pero bakit ang ganda ng dating ng Spiderman?

I think Titanic's Cameron decided to remaster in 4K before he even released his 1st BD.  Correct me if Im wrong.

possible naman na maimprove pa yung existing 1080p with another 1080p. Pwedeng 2k scan lang pala yung ginamit sa unang release tapos sa next release 4k scan na ginamit. (wait, pwede nga ba na may 2k scan at 4k scan of both films? haha)

OR (ito yung sure ako), panget talaga pagkaremaster nung initial release tulad ng Gladiator at Patton. After its second release, napaganda na at sharper na yung images. ganun siguro. Kumbaga mas inayos pa nila lalo.

So for now, hold off na lang muna ako sa 4k remastered. hintay na lang ng actual 4k. :D hehe

may i remind you guys, there are still no 4k blu-rays. If you but the sony 84 inch tv you get a small media streamer with already preloaded 4k movies. You will have to download the 4k movies once more are available.
H.265 is the new streaming codec the streaming industry is trying to perfect, i think its still a year off.

The Sony mastered 4k is technically a 2k print, they also increase the color space.

Just dropped by the nearest Best Buy yesterday, wala pa daw silang natatanggap na unit for display,
mga mid-June pa daw, I'll try the other branches pag napasyal ako, most likely duon sa isang Best Buy na mas malaki ay meron na yan,...

Sa Tokyo - Bic Camera, Labi, Yodobashi - all big CE stores.  Bumaba na nga ng konti ang street prices in Japan and actual delivery is about to commence (pre-order pa when I saw last month).  Ayaw ng anak ko kasi masyadong malakas ang SOE effect when they played Skyfall on the 65 inch 4K model - parang CG ang dating.  Pero ang ganda talaga ng linaw kung talagang linaw ang habol mo.
