4K Ultra HDTV’s are steadily growing in popularity.  Sales are also on the rise; thanks in part to falling prices and consumer awareness. Native 4K content, however, is still very limited (see here for more info).  If you are planning to purchase an Ultra HD TV in the near future, but don’t have access to 4K UHD content,  you can still enjoy the benefits of owning a set with this increased video resolution capability.

Sony XBR 850B

The XBR850B is a 55″ 4K UHD TV that is part of Sony’s premium XBR HDTV line-up. This model ranks just below the XBR900B and XBR950B.
