This deal is still active even though the item is OOS you can order it now and it will ship when they are back in stock.

Worth pointing out that it has HDMI 2.0 ports, aka "Legit 4k". None of this 4k @30hz junk.

Is a 49" TV large enough to fully appreciate 3D movies?

  its all relative to how close you are to the screen and since this is a 4k you can get even closer without seeing pixelation. i have a 70'' 4k at 9ft seating distance.

  HDMI 2.0 still doesnt have enough bandwidth for full 4k at the full color depth. Getting technical here but HDMI 2.0 maxes out at 8 bit color depth across the 24hz to 60hz range. Industry standards havent been put in place for 4k but the most common one right now is Quad HD (2160 x 3840) which is 24hz - 60hz but with the added resolution is a need for increased color depth to 12bit color depth and a rec 2020 (vs 709). However nothing currently can support that so the point is that these 4k sets are not really 4k because content cant be transmitted to them at the full color range even though technically they can display that full color range. 

If you want a 4k set now dont let it stop you, the sets look great even with standard HDTV. However the issue of connectivity (and content) makes me want to wait until that stuff gets sorted out so I dont have to upgrade in a year or two once 4k becomes standardized and my 4k set doesnt fit the new standards.

HDMI 2.0 only recently began being adopted, and HDMI 3.0 isn't even on the horizon yet.  HDMI 2.0 is as good as it gets for the foreseeable future.  Given how slow 2.0 was to roll out, I'm guessing you'll be waiting 3 years or so if you want to wait on 3.0.

  By that time, 8K will be rolling out

This sounds like a very good price for this type of TV, but just note that unless you are sitting really, really close to this TV 49" is awfully small for a 4k TV to make a huge difference. Now if it is just a quality set to be a quality set, regardless of resolution, this is a solid deal.

  HDMI isnt the only connection that is likely to be adopted. Display Port in its current iteration is now being included on some sets because its bandwidth is much larger than HDMI 2.0 and a new version is closer to being released than the next HDMI iteration. No one knows what will be *THE* 4k standard, it is still undecided, much like when manufactures were figuring out what to use for HDTV in the early days before settling on HDMI (remember component cables?).

I am not saying to not buy a 4k set now, just warning those people who are thinking about it what potential issues with buying now vs in a year. Buying a new TV, especially an expensive 4k one is a big investment for most people so I just thought they would like some information to make a more informed decision is all.
