    Can gaming at 8K really be easy in 2019? Sharp thinks so, and they sent over a demo unit to show us just how easy it is. But they didn't account for one thing... the Linus factor.

                Niiice! Took me less time to figure out the cable issue with my 35 in Monitor (especially with the lower refresh rates), I feel smart (just let me enjoy the feeling why it lasts!). Also, fun-fact the monitor periodically cuts out when the wrong spec cable has been plugged in. Who da thunk?
