    Can you just add an inch (that's not what she said) and make it a even 80?

    Out of the question until they have HDMI 2.0 and/or DisplayPort. HDMI 1.4 can only support enough bandwidth to do 4k @ 30hz

    The models listed by ClevelandPlasma are brand new 2014 models with HDMI 2.0

    Hmmm... I was reading details on the 79" and there was no mention of HDMI 2.0, and it specifically listed the HDMI PC resolutions and 1920x1080@60hz was the highest it listed

    I'd get one if I could use a PC at 3840x2160@60hz, but without that and almost no 4K content, they're kinda useless ATM

    The model numbers that Cleveland Plasma listed don't even register on a google search, so those model numbers must be wrong

    You just have look at the specs that Rizzo linked to, check out the Video section. Sony isn't calling it HDMI 2.0 or 1.4 or whatever. The HDMI licensing group has asked vendors to not call out a version.

    The specs shows it supports UltraHD at 60p (3840x2160/60p) which wasn't possible on HDMI 1.4.

    Oh weird. I did see that under video, however, on the 79" version, it doesn't list 3840x2160 as a PC supported resolution. And that's pretty much the only time you'd need 4k @ 60hz, from a PC. Blu Ray is all 24p.

    I'm not sure any video cards support 3840x2160@60hz via HDMI; the ones that do is through DisplayPort, and none of these TV's have DisplayPort.

    Yep, currently all video cards are HDMI 1.4 and so you'd need to use DP 1.2. The only 4k HDTV with DP was last years Panasonic LED-LCD model.

    Hope that situation works itself out in the near future. My next house's media room is going to need an 80" 4K

    Somewhat OT but might as well spring for that LG OLED 77-incher when we're talking that price range. Like you, I can't wait to see the pricing on it ($30k SRP being a CES speculation).
