Ultra HD, 4K technology has surpassed 3D televisions in resolution, offering four times the number of pixels in comparison to traditional HD television sets.
A mid-May search of Amazon and other major electronic retailers show the prices reflect the overall interest in each technology. A 55-inch Samsung 3D TV currently costs $779 as a prime member on Amazon, while an equivalent 55-inch UHD 4K model is $2,200.
One drawback of the 4K resolution is the size of the screen needs to be at least 50 inches, preferably larger, for our eyes to see the difference. While overall sales of 3D television sets have been growing year over year, Vizio dropping the technology completely from its product line is quite a statement to the rest of the manufacturing world.
