    So, getting a normal UHD display with LED technology will at 65-inch will cost you about R30 000, as per Dion Wired. Then you will have a full curved smart TV displaying pictures up to a resolution of 4096 x 2160. Or, for double the price, you can get a SUHD TV, with smart capabilities and using Quantum Drop technology to display pictures up to a resolution of 4096 x 2160. Hmmm....so Quantum Drop technology is R30 000 more expensive than normal LED technology, and I bet you won't even notice the difference. Or, as the article points out "...which render as much as a 30% increase in the visible spectrum, while using 30 to 50% less power when compared to normal LCD displays" whatever the hell that even means.

    So basically you have a TV that is capable of being "better" in some way by 30%, uses 50% less power off of an appliance that already doesn't use too much power, for 100%+ the price. Yeah sorry the math does not match on this one. Only a fool with too much money will even look at buying something like this

    I'm pretty sure it is Quantum Dot

    But yeah, your argument seems valid. I've been looking at anything approaching an affordable/reasonable price for an average UHD TV, but so far I haven't seen anything that perks my interest.
