3D TV Is Dead. Let’s Hope Smart TV Is Next.

CES 2015 is the year of 4K. TV makers have finally ditched the gimmicks and are simply pumping out big, beautiful televisions that produce big, beautiful images. We’re back to TV 101: Make the picture better and make it affordable. This is good! But where LG, Samsung USA, Sharp, Sony, and others excel at all that quantum dot, pixel splitting, color gamut stuff, their “smart” TV software sucks. It’s so bad in fact, that we’re actually shocked when we see a new TV OS that isn’t terrible. […] The best 4K TV you can buy is still just a dumb one—with lots and lots of HDMI ports. Because of the way streaming entertainment has evolved, any television can become a “smart” television if you want it to. It’s called Chromecast, or Amazon Fire TV, or Fire Stick, or Nexus Player, or Apple TV, or PS4, or Xbox one, and on and on. – Darren Orf, Gizmodo
