Even 64GB is pretty tiny for 1080p, so where is it going to put all those extra pixels? So far I have seen one sony 4k camera (ces) and it was using ssds, but it was a larger camera.
Yeah, id expect atleast a 128 for their high end. Like the article says though guess they will have to switch them out alot.
My rig - I7-4770K, ASUS Z87-A Mobo, 16 GB Corsair Ram, AMD 7990 GPU, CoolIT AiO Cooler, NZXT H630
Personally, I think that 64 gigs is not nearly enough. I understand that sounds like a heck of alot of space, but when you think about it, that is ALOT of extra pixels.
Say (For easy maths sake) That a 1080P hollywood movie takes up 4 gigs.
4k is (Pretty much) 4 times larger than 1080P, so lets say one of those 4k movies takes 16 gigs. (That is not to mention that 1080P movies are slightly compressed when you buy them to fit on cheaper discs, so presumably so would the new 4k ones)
So, you now have an 16 gig 4K movie. Congratulations. you can fit maybe 4 movies, if they're all slightly compressed and all that.
Now, I don't know about you guys, but I don't feel like having to store 8-10 movies on this, and then have to delete some, or buy another card.
Hopefully they will realise those people that are buying 4K TV's and movie services, will be able to dish out some more for a 128 gigabyte version (As"Clixxer" has said ^) to be able to actually enjoy their experience.
(Btw I know 1080P movies aren't 4 gigs each, although I've seen some like that, i was just for simple understanding)
yeah im just going to echo whats been said but even 64gb is not going to enough at all!!! come on toshiba think a bout this a little bit. Maybe though to give them the benefit of the doubt,just maybe they are playing it safe by making these more affordable with less storage but that also means less money spent by them just in the rare chance 4k isnt a smash success and this way their loss is minimal.
I also wonder if tv resolution is going to become like cell phones. Dont get me wrong i want a 1080p phone but honestly at that screen size it barely just barely doesnt matter anymore. Maybe thats why phones are getting bigger and bigger so this also seems to be a trend with tvs. The bigger the screen the more noticeable the pixels the higher the resolution needed.
