        this is what happens when you take technical specifications necessary for _professional_ application, and turn it into a consumer buzzword.

          If you need a microscope to see the difference, is there really a point? 4K is barely noticible over 1080p, and many people won't even notice that.

                If the only way you can tell the screen is 8k is to use a Microscope, you do not need 8k

                  8K is same as 720p tv because your eyes only see 144p per inch

                    Just wait until Pulseway has Neuralink integration, then you will be able to control your employees directly.

                          ' Thats one reason everyone is buying IPS PC monitors instead of fast TN' lol what? How utterly uninformed can you get. Who is buying IPS monitors exactly? Because im pretty sure most gamers buy the fast TN panels.

                                  The the 4k manufacturers are. Cause it's really what... 3.8k? So now what do we get with 8k... 7.6k?

                                            4K TV on 2013 = 15 grand
                                            4K TV on 2020 = $400
                                            8K TV on 2020 = 15 grand
                                            Conclusion : I'll buy a 8K TV on 2027

                                                      I'm just glad I don't watch TV. I can't be doing with all this nonsense about resolution, brightness, viewing angles, etc. There's so many variables that contribute to a good image on TV, there's no point in striving for absolute perfection just to watch the garbage that's on nowadays.

                                                        I think real 8k is a lie.
                                                        I don't believe it exist just yet.

                                                        At least the technology hasn't been perfected yet.

                                                          screw 8k tbh, the industry hasn't even gotten decent with 4k let alone 8k

The only company of the 3 that makes 8k content and the only company that can say lens to living room. Not to mention they are also using their HDC 8300 8k camera to film the Olympic. So if the content creator is not apart of Samsung’s created 8k branding its very odd that people are still trying to defend samsung. Remember sony also has the new 8k Venice camera that James Cameron is using to make the new avatar. As usual tho this channel doesn’t mention this.
