    @DeskStar
    with the amount of money needed to have whats seen in the pic, i would still put the tv in a "movie"/seperate room and enjoy the view (out the window) by itself.
    only a moron would put the tv in front of the window to block it (even if only partially).

    @Ricardo
    and unless your content creator or need to sit 6ft away from a 200 in screen, 16K wont do anything. :rolleyes:
    at 8K even a 88 in screen will have more ppi than a 24@FHD or a 49@4K.

    I have to sit about 1 meter from my 55B7 to see all the detail of 4k, 8k is just nonsense.

    I'd rather see 4k content with full res chroma.

    I'm still pissed that I didn't have $500k when this was available to buy.

    4096x2160P (which is the REAL 4K resolution), 152 inches and 3,700 watts to power!

    Just, staggeringly awesome television. Ever since I saw that, all other televisions are just too small...

    "2K (1,920 x 1,080) content" 2k is 1440 not 1080.

    2K is technically 2048x1080. 2560x1440 has always been referred to as 1440p, or if we are to be hipsters, 2.5K. Not that it matters, any of this.

    The superior performance of LG’s 8K OLED panel is enhanced by the company’s second- generation α (Alpha) 9 Gen 2 8K intelligent processor. The processor elevates picture and sound quality with deep learning technology and access to an extensive database of visual information. This allows the chip to optimize content by recognizing source quality and implementing the best algorithm guaranteeing stunningly real images

    This is what is interesting.

    You're both wrong:)

    The "K" stands for nK, with the "K" being 1,024 in computer terms and the "n" being the multiple of the "K".

    So...

    2K = 2,048
    4K = 4,096
    8K = 8,192
    16K = 16,384

    @Loobyluggs
    too old to pick up sarcasm if not flagged as such :D

    no need to do some major remodelling: for 60K you can get a prosumer grade projector that can do 300in.


    nope they're not wrong when it comes to consumer stuff.
    native (true) 4K is 4096 (x2160) vs consumer electronics do use UHD res (3840x2160) to have the 16:9 ratio (vs 20:9), but companies slap 4K on the box, as lots of ppl dont know what UHD (vs native 4k) means.

    tv companies switched to call them 2K screens referring to the tvs widths of 1920,
    vs referencing height (1080) in the past..

    Too old for most things :)

    Yah - if you want the 'ultimate' quality, the OLED/Plasma is NOT the way to go, but a laser projector onto a high quality screen; is.

    This is interesting if you got the cash:

    https://www.sony.com/electronics/projector/vpl-vw295es

    If you were looking at something more basic, yet still capable of completely and utterly destroying every "4K" OLED, Plasma and (lol) LCD television AND still being laser, then this:

    https://www.sony.com/electronics/projector/vpl-vw295es/specifications

    Both of those projectors have 4,096 x 2,160p @ 60fps, and as mentioned both are laser - which nuthin' and I mean nuthin' can beat, except possibly another laser projector from another manufacturer.

    Screen-wise, I haver no idea which one is best, but they are super-duper configurable.

    The one I got my sights on is:

    https://www.sony.com/electronics/projector/vpl-vz1000es

    As I like the idea of it being close to the thing that is being projected onto, and, would not require tonnes of internal reconfiguration to install. It also is laser, 4,096x2160p@60, 12-bit (wow) colour depth and one thing that always stood out to me is the contrast ratio: :1
