Is 4K really worth it? Numbers on paper are one thing, but should you really cough up the extra cash for a 4K TV the next time you’re in the market for a new television?

As recently as the beginning of last year, the answer might have been no. Ultra HD content was difficult to find and 4K televisions still commanded a big premium over 1080p models. But now things have changed. 4K content has become far more common and you’d be surprised at how affordable ultra HD televisions have become. In fact, it’s time to meet your first 4K TV: The Seiki SE42UMS 42-Inch 4K Ultra HD LED TV, which is just $329.99 with free shipping on Amazon.
