As a reminder:
4:2:2 chroma, 1X HDMI 2.0, Firmware update required for reduced input lag PC mode [live.com]

Also:
Doesn't have HDCP 2.2, so it doesn't support 4K video from FireTV, Roku 4, etc.

great deal for a 4k. Just a PSA for those wondering about using it as a PC monitor just remember, if you have a GTX 9xx video card, you have HDMI 2.0 and will be able to run 4k at 60Hz. If you have an AMD (like me) sadly, you will be limited to 30Hz. For this reason I must pass.
Make sure you guys are aware of the latency issues on this TV that a firmware update corrects. You can find more at this thread on a previous deal on this TV.



As mentioned above, there's a firmware update that corrects this problem.

Nice deal! No tax for CA makes it a better deal than the previous Amazon/woot one.

For TV watching 4:2:2 jumbos do not matter.

want to "future-proof / feature-proof" my TV as much as possible, do I still need 4:4:4?
NO


Unless you have future plans on using your TV as a PC monitor, you still do not need a TV with 4:4:4 capability. Why? Because all commercial video footage (OTA TV, Cable, Satellite, Blurays, DVDs, Camcorders, etc) is already subsampled at the recording source. So there's no point owning a 4:4:4 TV if you don't have any 4:4:4 material.

In regards to modern game consoles like the Xbox360 and Playstation3, they *should* be able to produce 4:4:4 material (they're essentially computers, after all). However, I have yet to find anything definitive on this topic. But for the sake of argument, let's assume game consoles are 4:4:4 capable. With games updating at a rate of 30/60 fps, detecting pixel differences between 4:4:4 and non-4:4:4 under normal viewing conditions is impossible. So 4:4:4 or non-4:4:4 on game consoles becomes irrelevant.

Apparently Club3d displayport to hdmi 2.0 is the only adapter that works to resolve this issue.

I can't vouch for this myself but reviews online seem to verify this. It's out of stock currently but I put in an order to test once I get my Insignia 43" Roku UHD TV from Best Buy with 4:4:4 Chroma (untested) for $399.

Thanks OP, I have a Nvidia GTX970 SC. This should go nicely with it after the firmware update.

Nice price but one question what's is the cheapest 4K GTX9xx card going to costs me?
The GTX 950 has been $120 quite a bit if you don't mind rebate. I have one running with LG 4K tv. It does look better when the video card do the upgrading vs the tv doing it.

No it does not matter. If you want to watch it in 4K, 60hz is the best ANY 4K tv right now can do.
