Sony's 4K TVs get priced

Sony has announced the official price and availability for its new XBR 4K Ultra HD LED TVs. The line includes the XBR-55X900A and the XBR-65X900A, which have screen sizes of 55-inches and 65-inches respectively. While some other manufacturers have offered ultra HD television sets at prices ranging all the way up to $20,000 or more, Sony is actually offering “reasonable” prices, at least comparatively.

The 55-inch TV will sell for $4,995 with the 65-inch version going for $6,999. Both TVs will be available for pre-order on April 21, but the final shipping date is unannounced. Along with pricing and launch information for the TVs Sony is also unveiled its 4K Media Player called the FMP-X1. This device will deliver movies and video shorts in 4K resolution for $699. The media player will be available later this summer.

The films that are included with the purchase include Bad Teacher, Battle: Los Angeles, The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Karate Kid (2010), Salt, Taxi Driver, That's My Boy, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Other Guys and Total Recall (2012).

And then Apple sells 2048 X 1536 that people hold 18 inches away from their face and people say praise about the high dpi display.

I for one would love a 4k 24inch monitor, I definitely CAN see the pixels on my 1920X1200 monitor.

I have a 27" 2560x1440 monitor sitting next to a 24" 1920x1200. The 27" has only about 10% higher pixel density than the 24" but the difference is massive, things are much sharper and cleaner.

The 15" retina Macbook Pro is a look at the future. Fonts are ridiculously good on that thing, totally accurate, no need for aliasing or smoothing, they're just how they should look. Same with images, UI, etc. Crisp and clean.

Bring on the ultra-high pixel density desktop monitors, I want it! :)
