Theres not much democracy in this particular decision making process. Theres the public private revolving door and plenty of lobbyist cash. And while democracy can be a bad basis for decision making, rampant regulatory capture by a industry with a natural monopoly in order to squeeze as much money out of customers as possible, and enact regulations that allow you to funnel customers to the sites of your vertically integrated media production companies, is a worse basis for decision making. People dont support it because they like the word "neutral", they support it cause it dosent take much imagination to figure out how fucked the internet is if net neutrality is not in place.

I mean, seriously, Seiki needs to hurry up and release a 60hz 4k version of its 38.5 inch display, preferably with a displayport. A 38.5 inch 4k 60hz VA panel would blow the weak ass 28 inch 4k TN panels everyone seems to be pushing today out of the water, especially if they keep their current price point. Ditch the tv tuner and smart tv crap, put in displayport and adaptive sync, and watch it become the monitor for All The Computers In The World.

4k displays have been ready for prime time since the middle of last year, when Seiki released their 39 inch 4k tv for around $600. Its just the monitor driving circuitry has been slacking, and HDMI sucks, and they really should have had displayport and 60hz 4k on these panels since the middle of last year.
