    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.

                  We need an 8k phone first. How else can we tell 8k on it?

                      We’ve come so far from having to stick multiple 4K screens together to game in 8k.

                        I don't understand why the manufacturers are jumping to 8k when there's still limited 4k content. Even streaming 4k content on YouTube can be brutal to watch even with the best cable/internet package from your provider. With so much data in 4k odds are high you'll get the spinning ball with even the best wireless connection in video streaming, so I couldn't even imagine 8k.

                            Do youtubers need to return the TV and gadgets sent to them from companies as reveiw unit for their YouTube channel reveiw video ?

                              Is it worth it ? Does this TV meet the promise of being an 8K

                                  human eye cannot make out difference between 1080 vs 4k vs 8k at certain distances - there is a calculator for that somewhere. So either you will sit unusually close to a 4K/8K TV to benefit from it or will have to buy unusually big TV to sit in your normal viewing place. What's the point ?

                                                    4K isn't even where 1800p was in it's lifespan, at this time so where in the world does 8K come in at? People are just now adopting 4K TV's regularly.

                                                                                          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.
