Sony and Samsung have both dropped $1000 or more on their latest 4K TV sets. Although still pretty pricey, this certainly brings the TVs down to a much more affordable number.

The 55-Inch offerings from both companies see a $1000 price drop, bringing Sony’s XBR-55X900A down to $4000 and the Samsung UN55F9000 down to $4500. The massive 65-Inchers see an even deeper price cut. At around $1500 cheaper now, Sony’s 65-Inch XBR-65X900A is now $5500 and Samsung’s UN65F9000 is now down to $6000. The best part, Amazon has matched and slightly beat the new prices from the Samsung and Sony stores.

While still a hefty price tag, and certainly more expensive than Seiki’s 50-Inch 4K option, it is nice to see these brand name options starting to come down. Although 4K content might be a little hard to come by at the moment, Sony has released a new 4K media player filled with ultra hi res movies and Apple has included 4K support in the new Mac Pro.

    4K TVs have four times as many pixels as the 1080P HD TVs we are accustomed to right now. It is encouraging to see the prices consistently drop, even on the higher end models. The lower the price goes the higher the demand for 4K content in TV and Movies there will be. Here’s to us all having huge, crystal clear televisions in the not so distant future.
