Yep, exactly this. 4K is a $50-70 premium on a $400 purchase. You get access to 4K netflix content now, plus access to 4K other content down the road with no upgrades needed. And all your 1080p content from Amazon and Netflix looks amazing at high bit rates, upscaled slightly. Or at the very least looks the same. For a device that's going to last you between 5 and 10 years, that small premium is definitely worth it. My first TV was a second generation hand-me-down and is in my second cousin's dorm room now after changing hands three more times. THey last forever, and as long as you can play mario kart on them in some capacity, are still useful. High resolution TVs are one of the few "future-proofs" that pay off.
