    I still can't find all of the stuff I want to watch in 1080p, sometimes even 720p is hard to find when the video content is old so I didn't even buy a 4k TV, imagine buying an 8k one and hoping for content...
    Hell I even still game on 1080p 60 Hz...

      I've had a 4k tv for 4 years and I haven't used any 4k content except some ps4 pro games....

        Why wasn't this shot in 8k?

                    720p for 32 Inch, 1080p 43 inch, 4K 55 inch, 8k 65 inch.

                      We better focus back on 1080p HDR displays, to me 4K is useless

                          If 1080p is the vertical measurement, and we call it 4k because it is quadrupling the number of pixels, why is this not called 16k?

                            Just like razors. 1000 blades is garbage. Buy the 1001 blade razor. It gets useless at a certain point

                                8k+touch input could make sense for working environments.

                                  2:59 yes... realtime upscaling from 4k to 8k and it's AI.. in TV... REAL TIME.. of course.
                                  I probably should buy that TV instead my old 1070 maybe it will render faster or something.

                                      no linus 8k is not pointless! when 8k becomes mainstream then 4k will become dirty cheap! even now I have found at local stores LG 55" 4K TV for only 460 euro! Barely 1 year ago a friend of mine bought an LG of same size but it was around 550 euro... just imagine if these prices keep droping down to around 300 euro, then the world will be full of huge TVs! :D

                                                8k is a joke for now, even 4k is still experimental. As for gaming, more resolution doesn’t make it more realistic, if I take a picture at 480p it will be still more realistic than a videogame at 4k, so 1080p is fine for me, I prefer to preserve constant fps.

                                                    Do want 8K. It can provide the necessary area for me as a 4K monitor, and the sharp picture a high dpi monitor can provide.
                                                    Of course, provided that it is in the same size as my current 4K monitor: 42".

                                                    At the same time, I could appreciate more 4K monitors at 120Hz in the above size :)

                                                        I'm just going to stick to 1080p for the foreseeable future :P I just honestly don't see the point in even 4k... 1080p looks just fine, and I really don't need larger.

                                                          Funny thing is, even at 50mbps compression on the stream will render most of the unnoticed quality gain out the window and the difference between it and 4k will be even smaller. 8K is a gimmick at this point and is TVs version of the Ghz race. We should ALL be telling people to ignore this BS and only buy TVs with true HDR technologies and true refreshrate improvements. HDR & Hz is the future of TV for the next 20 years.

Using a 1080p panel after gotten used to 4K you definitely cringe at the difference. I’m sure 8k will push the same. They said the same thing about 1080p then 4K now 8k. Sure there is a point where more ppi becomes redundant but if you have vision problems it’s truly a night and day difference for you also.

                                                                                              4k is really crappy compared to reality, and even 8k is actually quite poor. People with typical (1.0 a.k.a. 20/20) vision could see the difference between 8k and 12k, but not between 12k and 16k (unless they get close enough that they can't see the entire thing at once), and people with really good (2.0 a.k.a. 20/10 a.k.a. 40/20) vision could even see the difference between 16k and 24k.
                                                                                              That said, in case of video (or anything else with motion, i.e. games), you wouldn't necessarily have the *time* to *notice* the difference, so anything above 8k is only ever going to matter in niche use cases (e.g. computer monitors for some graphical professions). Off course *today* 8k is no where near worth the cost, but its time will come...
