    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.

    Cant see the difference. Does this mean 4k Oleds will drop in price once 8k Oleds come out??

            How does it handle playing an 8k .mkv file direct from USB? (Samsung's website doesn't even indicate what gen USB). A DisplayPort on future OneConnect might truly cross the monitor/TV boundary.

              I feel jealous when watching this because I’m still stuck using 1 pixel by 1 pixel

                    8k at 65 inches seems like overkill. I can see 70 inch or larger .

                      It’s so nice to see Linus complement a product. Pretty bad ass.

                        hello I have some questions about the 8k samsung. even on the model 950r
                        1) for a tv called 8k she only recognizes the 4k on youtube and can not go any more.
                        2) I downloaded videos in 8k but they are not recognized "strange !!"
                        can you give us a return video because we are several to ask us the question?
                        thank you

                            Question, is it possible to have a triple monitor set up with 3 of those tv's without having it at native 8K.

                                Sponsored by Samsung... Sorry but this is just an infomercial. ...and the "reading" of the lines about how great Samsung is makes it extra obvious.

                                    It’s thick bc it’s a QLED display so it’s led lcd, It has multiple panels in between the led backlight and the front lcd panel. It’s not as clear of quality as a pure led 4K tv

                                            8K is a total waste for at least 5-10 years.

                                                      I thought about buying this 8k tv but I don't think its good for gaming, so I went and ordered the 65 inch Asus gaming monitor 144hz, I currently own the 4K Samsung and can't handle the lag.  good video.
