    Saturday afternoon, a severe thunderstorm caused an incredible electrical surge that fried my TV, and cable modem. Thankfully, my big screen TV, Wi-Fi router and HomePod weren't affected even though they were connected to the same surge protector.

    Then today, Spectrum services (both internet and TV) were down all up and down the east coast for much of the morning and afternoon. I was like, "What the heck is going on?"....lol

    Anyway, I went to BestBuy and bought a 64GB TV 4K and thus far, I am quite pleased with it. The video quality is very nice.

    Alright then. Welcome to the big leagues...
    I have had my Watch 4K a day after @metllicamilitia, somewhere last September, and I love it.

    I mainly use it for Plex, to watch tv shows off of my PC and for Music and Netflix.
    I love that some music videos are already available on 4K.

    Money best spent

    Sorry about your old Apple TV, however, the Apple TV 4K is quite nice. I’m really liking mine as well.

    Wait, I was inconsiderate in my previous post. I’m sorry that the power surge happened to you. That’s never okay.

    I hated to see my TV get fried the way it did, but I had it replaced within 24 hours....lol

    Thank you, and when I connected my TV 4K, I didn't expect a huge improvement, but I was wrong. The difference is quite noticeable for sure.

    It was a heckuva storm and I was standing right near the equipment when the lightning struck. I immediately heard to fizzing sound, the power went out for a second or two and then came back on. The TV would power on at all. The cable modem powered on, but the ethernet ports were fried. Thankfully, I was able to replace them quickly and move on.

    Which AppleTV did you have prior?

    I came from the first gen Apple TV and a FireStick. So when I plugged the 4K in I was blown away lol.

    I had the TV 4 before the 4K but even there the difference is day and night.

    We have 2 of the 4k models at home and a few at work.

    A couple of things. You mention the picture is nice. Are you watching something that's broadcasting in 4k, and is your tv 4k? If not, then you're really missing out.
