Now we have gaming consoles in that price range that can do 4K and while not always "true" 4K gives a huge perceivable jump over 1080p.

Whether you buy 4K for your PC atm basically depends on whether or not you play more games than watch films, but I think the fact that 4K is almost more common in console gaming than PC gaming now says a lot about the need for and value of faux-4K techniques in the PC space.
Well I still think 4k for PC is an exception to the mainstream debate. Since we are then talking about viewing angles, Gsync/freesync, g2g time, input lag, UMBL etc etc

I don't think 4k is mainstream for PC ... yet. We do see IPS being adopted more readily now without the hefty cost it once had.
