    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.

    Sponsored by Samsung... Sorry but this is just an infomercial. ...and the "reading" of the lines about how great Samsung is makes it extra obvious.

    It’s thick bc it’s a QLED display so it’s led lcd, It has multiple panels in between the led backlight and the front lcd panel. It’s not as clear of quality as a pure led 4K tv

    8K is a total waste for at least 5-10 years.

    I thought about buying this 8k tv but I don't think its good for gaming, so I went and ordered the 65 inch Asus gaming monitor 144hz, I currently own the 4K Samsung and can't handle the lag. good video.

    8K is pointless! Forbes ran an article on it. To see a difference on a 75 inch screen, you have to be sat 2.5 feet away, which means 85 inch, around 3 feet away. Most people sit 7 - 9 feet away. Even 4K is pushing it because the optimal distance for 55 inch is 3.7 feet. If you sit 8 - 9 feet back it will likely look like 1080p to you. There will be some benefit (4K) from 4 feet to 8 feet away.

    I was thinking about buying this TV. But it clearly won’t do what I had hoped, so I’ll just go with an 85 inch 4K tv instead as an upgrade from my 70 inch 4K, which isn’t large enough 😆

    I am just trying to shoot for 1440p on my computer so I can watch all the 4K videos I have downloaded at better quality I am not even sure my computer could be do full 4k. I using a 39.5" 720p Insignia as monitor I am looking to upgrade to a 43" 4K Samsung or LG TV soon. 8K overkill and for the next 5 to 7 years it will be. Only like 10% of computer users have a 4K setup and only like 40% to 50% of home theater setups have a 4K display. What they did not tell you is this 8K 65" cost like $10k to $15k.

    Cool. Now all my 1440p if I'm lucky "4K games" on consoles and "4K movies" on bluray or streaming services can be even further under resolution!
