    -> UltraHD 4K TV Thread

    Was at mall yesterday and on display was Samsung's Q900R

    8K TV QLED TV!

    Just like the day when I first saw a 4K TV, this thing looks great.

    Then I asked the demo guy, where are you getting the content?
    His reply: thats the only content we have right now, just a demo video.

    Straits Times posted a review today.

    Some points:
    Price (in SGD) - as of July 2019
    $10,999 (65 inches)
    $16,999 (75 inches)
    $29,999 (82 inches)
    $99,999 (98 inches)

    I'd only buy a 8K by 2026. By then it is hoped that 8K blu-ray, 8K gaming and 8K netflix will become available

    I hate to break it to you guys but by 2026 it won’t be TV anymore. It’ll be VR and Immersive Visual and Aural Sense.

    When President Banning spits at the terrorists, you’ll feel that spatter onto you. When Rambo shoots the bad guys at 80 years old, you’ll feel the bullets pass through you. And when Scarlet Johansson disrobes and prepares to do planking on someone, well you get the picture.

    VR is a niche market. I however am enjoying my Oculus Quest. Easy to setup, No wires/ cables needed and you only need to use your mobile phone once during the initial setup.

    mmm...during my recent short visit to SG, I looked at a Sony 8K set. Couldn’t tell 4 K and 8K apart unless I m very close to the set.

    Like they say always, once you go 4K, you won’t go back.
