As reported on CanadianBusiness.com, Sony is only selling the TV at one size: 84 inches. Worse still is the price tag-$25,000-which means that only rich tech geeks who absolutely must have the latest thing will be buying it.
That's actually not that stupid. With the mass market being out of reach on account of everyone already being set with a recently purchased TV, it makes sense to go after the people who are looking for bigger and better screens, as small a niche as that may be.
What makes 4K confounding is, as CNET's Morrison suggests, it doesn't make a lot of sense. When I asked why Sony was only selling an 84-inch version and not anything smaller, a representative said that you only get the full benefit of 4K when viewing it up close. The optimal viewing distance for the company's 84-inch TV is therefore about six feet away. Anything further and the extra resolution really isn't noticeable.
