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 RUvid 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.

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

If it's not plug and play ill pass.
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.

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!!!

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.
