1080p TVs – Still a Good Choice for High Definition Viewing
Are you in the market for a new TV, but still not concerned or interested in the latest rave of 4K Ultra HD TVs that are taking over the television landscape? If so, you should know there are still plenty of 1080p HDTVs currently available, although in much smaller numbers and available models since manufacturers are now focusing most of their production efforts on 4K models. With that said, 1080p models still deliver excellent picture quality and usable features such as a decent smart TV interface/platform, all at a cheaper price.
