    The Samsung Q900R QLED 8K TV offers a top class in visuals, clarity, and just overall an amazing experience, but what does it take to really get 8K working when the tech isn't quite there yet to output it.

              The industry needs to get its shit together.4k hasn't even caught on yet,and they are already looking past it. Literally by the time 4k gets to 50% Adoption it will be Obsolete.

              The ps5 and xbox 2 are already right now UNDERPOWERED as in 3 years 8k will be what 4k is today.

              Unbelievable!! GET YOUR SHITS TOGETHER!!!

                  8k is pretty much useless on a screen that small 🤷

                              I guess 8k will be the new 4k in like 5 years I guess....eventually vr is going to just destroy everything.

                                Imagine that, you pay for new technology for 8K display but you have to get advice for how to set it up and use it from tech support! WOW

                                  SCIENCE: You eyes can’t see 8k. They can’t even see 4K unless your display is 65 inches or larger. What’s the point? I don’t plan on gaming at 4K on my 24inch display because it’s a waste of resources and time.

                                    Looks terrible on my screen lol. It's a little like Amy Wong's obscene tattoo in Futurama:

                                    Bender: Hey! Get a load of this pathetic 20th century T.V.
                                    Fry: What's wrong with it?
                                    Bender: Well, aside from causing eye cancer, these things had a lousy low-definition picture.
                                    Amy: That's true. I bet on a T.V. like this you couldn't even make out my obscene tattoo.

                                                                                        The ASC did a test, when HD was just becoming a viable format for cinema. They asked the audience to hold up their hands, as they cycled up from 240p to higher resolutions, and drop them, when they could no longer see a difference. Hands fell between 720p and 1080p. When it comes to motion resolution, the brain has a hard time processing detail beyond 720p-1080p. Static resolution is a different matter. But judging at how close you guys are getting to the tv, we've reached the point of diminishing returns on a display that size (and probably much larger).
