58-inch 4K-capable TV to go on sale in the US for $5,000

Toshiba has revealed that it will be releasing three 4K televisions in the United States, shortly after similar Ultra HD televisions go on sale in Japan. Starting in August, the L9300U series of UHDTVs will go on sale with a choice of three screen sizes, all of which will use the company's CEVO 4K Quad+Dual Core processor and CQ Engine for image processing and upscaling HD content to 4K resolution.

The L9300U range includes screens measuring 58 inches, 65 inches, and 84 inches, all of which have a refresh rate of 240Hz and built-in Wi-Fi, Miracast, and WiDi support. Smart functions are also available through Toshiba's Cloud TV service, which includes streaming videos, sharing content with other DLNA devices, and a searchable TV guide.

The 58-inch model of the Toshiba L9300U is expected to sell for $5,000, while the 65 and 84-inch models are priced at $7,000 and $17,000 respectively.

    They are NOT "4K" TVs.

    Their resolution is 3840x2160.

    That is not 4000 pixels. "4K" is a lie - false information - and I wish the industry would call them what they really are.

    (And it's not even in the same direction as "1080p" which is 1080 vertical pixels. So "4K" is a double lie.)

    They should call these TVs 2160p.

    Nice points you bring up; but anyways what content is there at those resolutions?

    Not much yet, a few videos have them on YouTube. But basically it's 4x the pixel area of 1080p, so you need a lot of storage if you want to record (really nice-looking) "4K" (or 2160p).

    As much I grew up surrounded by installed 5.1 home media systems (including my own blu-ray system), I'd rather have my own personal, portable media system with 1080p than a 4K system. I can play it as loud and deep as I want through my earphones and not piss off my apt. neighbors
