Is it worth buying a 4k TV?

If you're shopping for a TV today, a 4k TV is worth buying over a 1080p TV, provided you sit close enough to see the extra detail and are watching native UHD content. If you're only watching 1080p or even smaller resolution content, it won't give you a boost in quality.

4K, also known as Ultra HD, refers to a TV resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. That's four times as many pixels than in a full HD TV, a total of about 8.3 million pixels. Having so many pixels means a higher pixel density, and you should have a clearer, better defined picture.

Is 1080i better than 720p?

Screen Resolution: Bigger Is Better
By comparison, a 720p TV has twice the resolution of an analog TV picture. 1080i has a resolution of 1920 pixels by 1080 horizontal lines. However, it is interlaced, so the lines are painted on the screen in two passes of 540 lines each.
