    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.

    I had some issues with this TV trying to get 8k 60hz also like them with the screen going black, What fixed it for me was getting 8k rated HDMI cables...

    4k is the resolution we should all aim for unless you have a 100+ inch tv its 100% useless. 4k is more than perfect enough.

    There is no reason to buy an 8K TV because they NO encoder receive an 8K signal!
    Work on you with commercials!

    only an idiot buys an 8k screen when most people play at 1080p to 1440p and playing at 4k is pushing your gpus to the max
    i've lost complete respect for these youtuber dog shits
    i've watch 50 video on using a tv for a monitors and no one know anything, they just full of so much bullshit info it getting me angry
    YT reviews have not hit rock-bottom trash quality as most of these tubers are just complete whores at this point.

    I have a question for everyone.
    4k 120hz
    8k 60hz

    I'd go for 4k because it's crisp but not as crisp and sharp as 8k but the higher FPS is a huge plus, especially at 4k

      4k 120 hz is my current tv. And im still waiting to fully utilize it.

    FAKE 8K TV. Looks even worse than 4k OLED because of terrible contrast modulation.

    theSNAPCASE Month ago

    I really wish the camera man went in for a zoom on the TV, like when you did normal resolution settings in windows in 8k and the camera is filming the entire TV................makes no sense? give me an example of the ppi ..cmonbruh.

    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.

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

    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

    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

    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.
