My computer got an upgrade today, and it makes browsing websites and stuff really nice. That's partly why I'm posting here! :-D

It's on sale at CDW right now.

I've gone all 4K as well, amazing for reading text. If you're not too choosy on brand and specs and just using it for text, no gaming, can get one for really cheap now if you time it right.

Biggest (only) TV in my house is 32", it certainly isn't a 4K.  Enjoy yours (assuming you got one).

I started price comparing TVs yesterday though and will probably get 1-2 more soon.

I bought a 40" 4K Samsung last year on Black Friday.   I paid around $450.   It's the best TV in the house.  Black Friday and Superbowl weekend are some of the best times to buy TVs.

Wait, there's a difference between 4K TVs and 4K monitors.

A monitor, which you use for computer purposes, you're going to be up close, so it matters that it's 4K, as you can see crisply defined text better. I'm not a gamer, but there are optimizations 4K has for games. I can tell the massive difference when reading text on a 4K vs 1K monitor.

But a TV, where you're 6, 8, 10 feet away, you can't tell the difference between 4K and 1080 (1K) w/the naked eye until the screen is around 55 inches. And in tandem with HDR, it makes visual and  economical sense to get a TV that's 60 inches or larger. Or that's how I understood it and was advised.

This one is only 27 inches but $340, at least till midnight, I think this is my secondary monitor and so far has worked well for me.

Wow, at 27 inches you're looking at really great resolution!

I'll probably be needing another monitor since someone at work stole the one from my desk. . .
