  • 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

  • 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.

  • Also being that i think about this sony is not apart of this association. 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.

  • We have real 8k on mars already. Elon isnt welcome here.

  • Its a moot point anyway. We humans cannot "see" in 8K....its been proven that we "max out"? can sharpen a picture...and tweak colrs and shading, but we can't SEE in 4K....much less 8K!....its all just marketing ploys and buzz-work techno-sepak to get you to spend money! Case & Point: So be smart....don't blow your money on 8K TV' a decent hi-def 1080p...and keep your hard earned cash!

  • Dude, thanks for the intel. I’m still in the market for a new Family Room T.V. For 2020. So I suppose the questions are: 1. L.G. v. Samsung, who is bullshitting who. Which 8K is TRULY 8K AND ready for prime time. 2. OLED v. QLED Has QLED reached parity with True Blacks? Thanks Jaime‼️‼️ As always, you rock‼️ Much L♥️VE to You and the Whole of Team Linus Media Group‼️‼️‼️♥️♥️♥️✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼🥃🥃🥃

  • Hell, all TV manufacturers have been lying to us about 4K, because the retail stores most of the times only show the vertical resolution and not the horizontal. REAL 4k is not 3840x2160, REAL 4k is 4096x2160!

  • Advertising that trashes competitors for problems doesn't tend to keep up with when their competitor fixes it. Comcast and Verizon trash each other for issues that lasted for maybe 90 days, as much as two years and five years after the issue has long been resolved.

  • Ah, yes. Good on LG for correctly labeling their new TVs as Real Wasted Pixels. They need to add Real Hard To Drive too though.

  • Good info but we need an outside source with no companies influencing the results to test the displays to truly certify. So last year's Samsung "8k" should be reduced in price even more.
