    But being in the cable industry for 20 years and now retired I would not tell someone to get an older TV in this case 1080 when prices have since dropped big time and now someone can get a 4k for less price and get much better value.

    Agree that there is not a lot of content in 4k but over all the picture is going to be brighter and more clear simply due to more screen pixels.

    The thing I don't like about 4K is that my folks are currently using an analog cable box and the picture does not look very good. You can only blow an image up so far before it looks cheap. Kinda like watching a VHS movie on a 1080 TV.

    How about refresh rate? Is 120 better than 60 when there are fast moving things on screen? Seems like it would be.

    Refresh rates complicate things even more. Some gamers like using a monitor with 144hz refresh. Refresh rate vs higher resolution and then throw in gpu power. Of course a monitor still needs a tuner for cable.

    For my old eyes and basic cable connection it's doubtful I can tell the difference of many of the features offered in todays tvs. One thing I look for is an IPS panel (vs TN or VA).
