Default Sharp unveils LCD with 4x the resolution of HDTV

I would LOVE to take a look at this set.

I hate to break it to you, but your HDTV is slowly but surely falling off the cutting edge. Yeah, when you bought it you must have thought it didn't get any better than that, but guess what? It's already gotten better, and that $6,000 plasma screen is getting into 13-inch black-and-white with rabbit ears territory. That's because Sharp has produced a 64-inch LCD monitor whose resolution is four times that of your paltry HDTV. It has an insane 4,096 x 2,160 resolution, meaning it can show four HDTV images at the same time when divided quarterly. That's a lot of pixels. The tech won't be making its way to consumer TVs anytime soon, so you're safe as the cool kid of the block for now, but look for this stuff to trickle into Best Buy at some point in the future, no doubt just in time for you to save up another $6,000 to hop back on the cutting edge.

As long as our content is limited to 1920 x 1080 (which it will be for a l-o-n-g time), I'd be happier with a 1080p display with excellent PQ at a reasonable price

PC monitors can do way over 1080p.

Those resolutions will never be realized in the OTA, cable, or satellite realm. They hardly have enough bandwidth for 720p/1080i much less the insane res that TV is capable of. HDTV will be around for a very long time. SDTVs were around for over 50 yrs. I imagine HDTV will have a lifespan of about 25 years.

Yeah, but people don't sell/buy 60" PC monitors to watch HDTV programs.
